Dream Jeopardy!

Got this idea from Hadeel, who got it from her friend Shane, who got it from Douglas Coupland's book "Microserfs" (Read it, it's hilarious). Sajda's followed up too. It's irresistible: you describe yourself by listing your Dream Jeopardy categories about anything trivial / frivolous:

Noha is 24 years old. She is a public servant for the Canadian federal government in Ottawa, and her dream Jeopardy categories would be:

  • Montreal Canadiens current three-months of mediocrity following an amazing (and in hindsight, above their heads) start to the 2006-2007 season
  • Various Gollum / Smeagol lines from Lord of the Rings
  • All lines from the musical Newsies and Disney songs from the 90's / early 2000's (Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Mulan)
  • George W. Bush's stupidest quotes
  • How make wheat free, dairy free bread that doesn't taste like rocks
  • The "double wrap" technique for various headscarves (aka how to put a million pins into your headscarf without a) poking yourself and b) having it look like you've got a million pins in there)
  • Cute phrases uttered by my nieces and nephew

I could compete with you on 3 of your categories - Gollum's lines, Disney movies (esp. MULAN! LOVE MULAN!) and the double wrap technique (a fine art if there ever was one).

oh yes - the double wrap certainly is important :D
You'd probably out do me in Mulan, but I bet I'd beat you in LOTR. The number of times I have seen the trilogy borders on outrageous. I can usually recite Gollum's lines along with him, in the correct voice and tone and everything.

Assalamu'alaykum,

Just followed through a few links ... I'm a huge Habs fan, big Lord of the Rings fan, and big fan of my own nieces and nephews. :) Could easily compete in any of those categories...

All the best, insha-Allah.
