OCD Jeopardy




"I'll take Googlemania for $400, Alex."

"The answer is, 14 . . . so far"

*ding!*


"What is, how many different ways can you phrase a Google search for 'early pregnancy symptoms'?"

"Correct! Make a selection."

"Procrastination for $800, please."

"The answer is, Your appellate brief is due on February 20th."

*ding!*

"What is, why I ought to stop obsessing about the results of this IVF cycle and get back to work?"

"Right again! Select a category."

"These two symptoms are literally keeping you up at night."

*ding!*

"What are crazy dreams and insomnia?"

"Ooooh, I'm sorry. The correct answer is 'What are frequent urination and insomnia.'"

The really weird thing is that as I lay wide awake in bed at 4 this morning, I was thinking about this post and envisioned myself, hugely pregnant, eating a giant bowl of Rice-a-Roni and rubbing Turtle Wax on my hunormous belly. It cracked me up at the time, but then again, things are much funnier at 4 am.

Three more days of weirdness until Beta.

*sigh*
