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!

For everything. But especially for Bryan Adams and Celine Dion… and maybe Shania Twain, but I kinda like her, so she can stay. Actually I kinda like Bryan Adams too. Ok, so mayb e I just blame them for Celine Dion… with their poutine (which is delicious), and colder weather, and marriage equality… those guys suck!

We had a whole round on recognizing Canadian things and people last night, and that was just one of the many things we learned at pub quiz last night… let’s have a look, shall we?

We started off with a wordplay round called Elementary, where all the answers began with “sher” or ended with “lock” I am pretty sure I stated that several times during the explanation, but that didn’t stop you from putting stuff down that didn’t fit those rules. Anyhow, we learned that She-Ra’s mild mannered alter ego was Adora (It’s funny, we were discussing this very thing a few days ago and couldn’t remember her name), Amontillado is sherry (which is gross if you have ever tasted it. What was the big deal about it?), and how fast was Brent with that bonus question? Holy crap!

Then we did our audio round, where we all learned that not many of you are familiar with artists that have backup bands, and the ones that were rocked the crap out of this round. The teams with near perfect scores and jokers to boot were Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola, and Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want.

Then we had our round on Canadians, where we learned that it apparently gets very cold and icy in southern California, thus them being the home of Zamboni, THX is owned by George Lucas and is therefore NOT Canadian, Trivial Pursuit is a Canadian invention, as is Pamela Anderson, and Paul Anka (well, they can’t all be winners). Score were pretty average here, which tells me you guys were doing a lot of guessing. But that’s ok.

In honor of Columbus Day, we had our round 4 on Ninas, Pintos, Santas, and Marias, where we learned that Project Runway has been on the air for 10 fucking years, Frieda Pinto and Dev Patel have been dating for 6 years (buy a ring already, dude… damn!), and that Santa Fe is the oldest state capital in the country. Most of you did pretty well on this round, but Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola and Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want lead the round with 7 points each.

Then we looked at pictures of movies that took place during The Great Depression. The biggest stumbling block was Cinderalla Man, which was commonly mistaken for Raging Bull. Hugo was missed a lot as well, which is a crying shame. Go watch that movie.

Then we separated the men from the boys with a round that was not just spitting out answers, but using your head to make portmanteaus of two answers. So we ended up with answers like “How To Get Away With Murder She Wrote,” and “What I Gotham.” Scores were pretty average, but Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola lead the round with a respectable 7 points

Round 7 was all about couples who were fighting or getting divorced. It’s shocking how many of you missed Kramer vs. Kramer. I mean, it is the quintessential divorce movie. But anyway, you all knew Mrs. Doubtfire, so I guess I can forgive you a bit. Scores were rather low this round with Bouncy House Day Care leading the way with 6 points.

Throw in the random knowledge of round 8 and a shitload of jokers, and the game was done. In the end, no one could catch Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola and they stayed on top all night, followed by Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want in second and Bouncy House Day Care in third.

And now for…

“Shit That Comes Out Of My Best Friend’s Mouth”

 

While walking down the aisle of a grocery store

Him: Shit!

Me: What is it?

Him: (as he runs into a stack of food) Shit knee foo!

Me: What the fuck? Is that some new form of martial arts?

Him: *laughing* I don’t know where that came from…

 

See you all next week!

Toodles!

Quiz last night was exactly what I needed. I was tired, and had a headache for most of the night so having a smaller amount of teams, meant I didn’t have to rush as much. Just so you know, I’m feeling tip top today, so no need to worry, but I am pressed for time, and my creative juices just aren’t flowing so this will be a rather short blog.

We discussed first ladies, and songs who’s artists were the titles of other songs by different artists. We delved into cows, cows, and more cows with our speed round on cattle, and dived into recent events. Yes the inspected dove anuses. No, I don’t know why.

We identified the young and the old Spock in various non-vulcan roles, and had an entire round on onomatopoeias! It was like a classic Batman episode up in this bitch!

Then we listened to Patrick Warburton drone on for a while, and had a sufficiently random random knowledge round wherein a lot of teams did very well.

In the end, The Geeks Come Out At Night (Mostly), proved to be unstoppable thanks to their early lead on rounds one and two, followed by Lucy in The Sky With Blood Diamonds and Where The Fuck Is Everyone?

See you guys next week, hopefully I won’t be too exhausted after a weekend of camping.

Toodles!

See you at quiz!

Mostly college, but also the younger years. I went tubing on the Comal River over the weekend, and it brought back a lot of memories of my tubing trips while I was in college. Granted most of those were in the heat of the summer, and the ice cold rivers were quite pleasant. Having my butt in what felt like an ice chest for 2 hours wasn’t 100% pleasant, but it was warm enough that it wasn’t torturous.

But I was reminded of a few things. 1) Never bring something on the river that you aren’t prepared to lose. I actually didn’t forget this one, I brought nothing with me except a pair of sunglasses, and I ended up losing them. 2) Bring a towel to put behind you in the tube so you don’t chafe. Yeah, forgot that one. 3) Wear shoes. I didn’t forget this either, but I always wear water shoes when I’m in a natural body of water. 4) Never trust your instincts about the river’s depth. Expecting it to be 4 feet deep, and finding out it’s like 500-feet deep when you slip off your tube, is not fun.

Anyhow, that was my weekend. It was awesome. But we also had a quiz last night, and it was awesome too.

We had a round on Monopoly Tokens, wherein I learned that there was once a monopoly token shaped like a money pouch, as did a lot of you, I think. Anyhow, it was a fun little round and I got to play “In The Jailhouse Now” during the round, which is always a win for me.

Then came round 2. And it was a shitfest. Ugh… so many crappy scores. No one jokered. NO ONE! But I was surprised to see a few people get the Baz Luhrmann song. As I stated, this song is filled with advised, most of which I follow to this day, and now I shall pass it along and share it with you.

 

The Sunscreen Song

 

Then we had a round of steel, wherein we were all reminded that steel is made of iron and carbon, Carnegie built lots of libraries, Damascus Steel is pretty, and China made blast furnaces first.

After the break, we talked about Shallots of Gene Shalit, and most of you did really well, I’ve never heard of a Lyonaise sauce. Bearnaise, however I had actually made before, and Spongebob made is first appearance.

The visual round had you looking at immigrants and telling me the shows they were from. Most of you did extremely well and the average scores on this round was 7. Then we talked about books, cause you know… I’m nerdy like that. I was happy to see you are all literate with so many correct answers.

Round 7 and 8 come and went, and in the end, we had our winners.

Now, here we had a few upsets.

Haulin’ Goats had more than 6 people, so even though they placed 2nd, they were disqualified (I make that sound horrible… they actually came up and told me they had more than 6 and were just playing for fun, so it was all good). And due to a scoresheet debacle (which was entirely my fault and I apologize), the actual second place team Mike Vick in a Box were not listed as second place, and did not get the prize they were due. My sincerest apologies to them, and I have made arrangements to give them their prioze next week. So the teams that were awarded the prizes were as follows: Now Hiring: US Secret Service came in first, followed by Clooney’s Gone: I’m In and JJ Watt is a Measure of Power in second and third respectively. See you guys next week!

 

And now for…

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


Right after dinner, the night before we went tubing

Him: Omg, that brisket was good!, but I had trouble with one of the slices.

Me: You had trouble?

Him: Yeah, there was this one piece of meat I just couldn’t get into my mouth. It was too big.

Me: *starting to giggle*

Him: I sucked and sucked trying to get it all in, but I had to suck so hard the juices got all over my beard and cheeks

Me:  OMG stop, you’re just making it worse…

 

Last night, while we were driving to quiz, and a few minutes of silence.

 

Him: You know, it makes you wonder… when whales menstruate, does the blood attract sharks?

Me: *staring in silence*

Him: That was kinda random, wasn’t it.

Me: To say the least… I mean we weren’t even talking about anything, I was like “does WHAT make you wonder?”

Him: *laughing* Do you want to know my thought process of how that came up?

Me: I would LOVE to know how that came up.

Him: Ok, we passed a billboard that said something about Flo, so I though, it would be a good team name idea if something happened with a Flo, we could call ourselves a “Heavy Flo Day.” Then, I thought, what has a heavy flow? A whale. Then I thought about sharks.

Me: Wow…

Him: Could you imagine if that happened, though? The sharks would come up, and the whales would be like “Don’t bite my vagina! I’ll flail you do death!”

Both of us: *laughing hysterically*

 

Toodles!
