Answer: “Who is Lindsay Eanet?”
Lindsay and I met while working at The Maneater student newspaper in our freshman year. I don’t remember exactly how we met, but we became friends when we worked together on a fashion story for MOVE, which is The Maneater‘s biweekly arts and entertainment magazine. The next year, when everyone was moving off-campus, we became roommates.
Linds tried out for the College Championship series in Jeopardy! that year as well as the next. She didn’t make it until this year — and earlier this evening, a large group of us all gathered at The Heidelberg for a watch party to see Lindsay win $22,100, triumph in her first round and sail into the semifinals.
Lindsay’s semifinal round airs on Wednesday, so check your local listings to see when Jeopardy! is played wherever you are. For those of you in Columbia, be sure to tune to ABC/KMIZ-17 at 5 p.m. on Wednesday the 10th.
On an unrelated note, I carried a camera around with me all day to see what I could get. Here are a few more photos that almost made the cut:
From what I hear, it’s still snowing. It’s turned into a pretty nasty, slushy snow, which means I don’t plan on going outside again until it stops. I’ve also heard there are a lot of especially careless drivers out there, which means I’m not going to drive to the grocery store as planned. Which means I might just order Chinese food and make someone else drive to deliver it to me.
I’ll be sure to tip well.
