Just now, Jeanne and I were watching the game show Questions Pour Un Champion, and I kept having to remind her that it was past Madame L’s bedtime, which does NOT mix well with shouting along at game shows. We were particularly worked up on account of tonight being the one time a year this program invites students from the Grandes Ecoles to compete, (like the Ivy Leagues in America), and HEY, HOT GEEKS!
After my eleventh time of "Shhh"ing Jeanne, I heard the announcer ask, “What is the contraction of two English words whose meaning is journal intime...” and before any of the contestants could hit their buzzers, I raised both arms in the air and shouted “WEBLOG!” loud enough that I’m sure it shook every wall in my 16th century apartment building. And then I looked at Jeanne and covered my mouth and whispered, “Weblog! I finally got one right!”
