Between conducting groundbreaking research projects, creating mural-sized oil paintings and training for ultra-marathons, I tend to watch TV. I especially like game shows, particularly word games and trivia shows.

One of my big faves is Chain Reaction, where you have to connect one word with the next word to create a common phrase. Then, you connect the second word to the third in its own phrase, and so on. For example, to connect the word "electric" to the word "show," you could do: electric car show, since electric car and car show are both common phrases.
