Some links, one involving Alex Trebek

You know why living in Virginia is so awesome?  Not only are we close to all kinds of major cities, like D.C. and Baltimore, but we’ve got the cool college city of Charlottesville (home of UVA), where the Virginia Festival of the Book is taking place March 17-21, 2010.

Here’s a link I came across earlier today (and, sweet, the 2009 winner was from Virginia – go Old Dominion!):

And, finally, what blog post is complete without  a mention of Alex Trebek?  Jeopardy is holding their online test next week – I signed up because, hey, why not?  If there’s any chance at all I could meet Alex Trebek, I’m in!  East Coast test is Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 8pm.  Registration was super simple, it took like a minute.

Here’s a link:

Now it’s off to bed I go – I’ve got to get crackin’ on some interview questions tomorrow!
