I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Last night was just an experiment in debacles. First, I apparently can’t read, and screwed up one of the bonus questions, then my spreadsheet for the scores was all messed up (still don’t know what that was all about, but it’s fixed now), So to everyone who was at my quiz last night, especially the newbies, I sincerely apologize for the way the quiz went. It is not how it normally goes, I assure you. So did you see the Doctor Who premier? I’m so looking forward to this season! Peter Capaldi looks to be a much darker doctor, which I think the show needed. I love Matt Smith, and he was probably my favorite doctor so far, but the series needed something different, and I think a little darkness will do the trick.

Most of my buddies who quiz on Mondays at the Creek were off at the theater rewatching the premier on the big screen, which is why the competition was lighter last night. I’m very jealous. I wish I could have been there! Anyway, last night I was hoping the Doctor would come and take me away from all my technical mishaps.

That being said, the quiz itself was pretty great, and it went pretty smoothly for the most part.

We started out with a round on Bs and classical music. The most missed answers were Billy Budd, and Samuel Barber (despite the massive clues of Sweeny Todd, Brutus Beefcake, and Floyd of Mayberry). And yes, I used to call the bassoons farting bedposts myself… and no it had nothing to do with the guys who played them… well maybe a little. Those busses for band trips were very tight quarters.

Round 2 was all about songs that mentioned MTV in some way. Scores were on the low end, and honestly I had never heard of one of the songs in the list, which is why I now must download it.

Then we played a game of Hi-Lo just like on The Price is Right! I was certain this was going to be a shitfest because if you mess up one answer it will cascade down into all the others, but you guys surprised me! The scores were really great on this round, so good for you!

After the break (which in retrospect, I am certain the scores and placings were all jacked up due to my spreadsheet issue). We played another game called “Don’t Trust Your First Instinct!” I apparently didn’t explain the rules well enough because most people did, and thus the scores were pretty crappy. Yes, Ben Fold’s Five only has three members. Pocahontas married John Rolfe, George Lucas once rallied to Congress to keep digital changes from being made to old movies (hypocrisy at its finest!), and Chinese Checkers comes from Germany. I have an experiment for you. Next time you’re out and about… count the number of Subway restaurants you pass. You think Starbucks is crazy? You have no idea!

Gap-toothed celebs filled up our visual round, and most of you knew all of them except for the last one (which I also didn’t know cause you know… sports and I don’t really get along).

Then we talked about Burning Man, which you guys knew quite a bit about! I would love to go to that one year… just to say I did it. Though I would fear for my skin… gingers and deserts really don’t mix well. Gingers and desserts however get along VERY well! Just see how I react when you hand me cake or pie to find out. Yes, that is a hint.

Then we delved into revenge in round 7 with clips of people out for the dish best served cold… and no, I don’t mean gazpacho. It shocked me how many of you missed Mean Girls. Go right now and buy it, because it was one of the funniest Tina Fey-written films ever.

Throw in the randomness of round 8, a few jokers, and a crapload of hand calculations with a calculator, and we had a game. Slumdog Thousandaires came out on top this week followed by the dynamic duo  I Like My Wine Shaken, Not Stirred in second, and Titanic: The Ultimate Ice Bucket Challenge in third.

Hope you guys had fun! I will see you next week! Unless the TARDIS comes to take me away… well, even if it does I guess that doesn’t matter, right?

Last weekend my best friend and I celebrated his birthday (for the third time I think… since it’s in June) by actually using the birthday present I gave him -- tickets to see OneRepublic in concert! They were amazing! But amidst the alcohol and goofiness that abounds when we have an outing together the weekend had two specific moments of hilarity.

 

“Shit That Comes Out of my Best Friend’s Mouth”

 

While at the concert, waving his glowing foam wand

Him: I wish I had a hole I could put my wand in…

Me: *staring at him while he made a cringing face*

 

The next day on my couch watching Doctor Who on Netflix

Him: Hey! That’s a sound from Scooby Doo!

Me:  What is?

Him: The snowmen roaring! That was the sound the dinosaurs made on Scooby Doo!

Me: I don’t remember there ever being Dinosaurs on Scooby Doo.

Him: yeah… I don’t either…

*laughter*

 

Toodles!

So, I work in tech support, and I deal with a lot of different types of customers. So I think I shall regale you with some info about the customers I deal with.

There are many different types of customers, but here are a few that come to mind.

 

1)      The Nervous Nellies – they have either had WAY too much coffee, or they just naturally live in a Chihuahua-like state of vibratory nervous energy. Guiding these guys through the steps of fixing something can be excrutiating. They click on the wrong thing, lose stuff, forget their train of thought, get lost doing things that you never asked them to do, and above all else, stammer, stutter, and talk incessantly about nothing.

2)      The Know-It Alls – They know everything. And tell you what you have to do to fix it. Usually, what you have to do to fix their issues are not even close to what they tell you do to. They also try to use big fancy words to make it sound like they know what their talking about, and 9 times out of 10, make themselves sound stupid in the process.

3)      Methuselah – You have no idea why they desire to be online… they don’t even know why, to be honest. They can test your patience sometimes, but they are wonderful to deal with. Most of them are super happy and grateful that someone is helping them. They follow instructions well (albeit slowly), and usually have great stories to tell in the process. These are actually my favorite types of customers.

4)      The Wiz Kid – These guys may seem like they are awesome to deal with on the phones, but they can be exceedingly arrogant at times, especially when you catch them in a lie, or direct them to a troubleshooting step that fixes the problem that they were convinced would not have any effect.

5)      The Captive – These guys can be some of the most annoying. Every troubleshooting step is met with an exasperated sigh, and long pauses, as if they are incredulous at the fact that they actually have to DO something to fix their problem.

6)      The Liason – Also one of the most annoying. These are the ones that refuse to sit at the computer themselves, or to hand the phone to the person sitting at the computer. Instead, in their minds, it is much more productive to relay your instructions to someone sitting right next to them, often saying the wrong thing, or completely making stuff up that you didn’t say.

 

Oh, and we had a quiz last night too! Two teams were neck and neck throughout the whole thing, but Blame Gene managed to gain the edge in the final two rounds, putting them on top, with the other team, Balls Deep In a Squealing Oompa Loompa While Sucking a Gobstopper. Rick Perry Says So put up a brilliant fight, but, in the end, had to settle for third. 17 ran.

I had this awesome conversation with my best friend ready to post today… but my laptop died, and I don’t have it anymore. So nothing this week. Sad panda.

Toodles!

See you at quiz!

We had a quiz last night, and it was good. Life is pretty good, actually. This morning I woke up feeling like things were all going my way. I work a lot… a whole lot, actually, and I’m tired a lot of the time due to late nights and early mornings, but all is good. I have great friends, and I have some awesome weekends coming up in the next 3 months.

Anyway, short and sweet…

Round 1: Partners of Arthur. You guys did really well, with scores ranging from 6-8.

Round 2: Knock, Knock. Scores were kinda in the shithouse with only a a handful of teams getting over 10.

Round 3: Speed round on SNL alum. Terrible… just terrible. Living proof that SNL died in the 90s. It’s just a shambling corpse now. Scores were very low, average of 3. Yikes.

Round 4: American History X: All the correct answers had the letter X in it. I’m pretty sure I said that more than once. But, I got lots of answers without X’s in them… seriously? Anyway, scores were pretty good, average of 5.

Round 5: Albinos! The most missed one was Me Myself and Irene. Everything else was pretty dead on. Average of 7.

Round 6: Where we go when we die: Excellent round with excellent scores! Average of 7, and a couple of perfects.

Round 7: Game shows! Every Single team got 7 points, and every single team missed The Million Second quiz. I actually applied to be on that show, but didn’t make the cut, apparently.

Round 8: Random knowledge: Orchestras, fabrics, Superbowls, and Willy Wonka. You guys did pretty well, with an average of 10.

After all was said and done, Slumdog Thousandaires held onto their early lead, and ran away with it, leaving Lend Me Your Seat in second, and The Run-By Fruits in third.

Thanks for coming out and I will see you next week!

Toodles!
