I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our seven rabbits, six chickens, four ducks, four cats, two dogs, two goats, and two turtles.

The Legend of Geeky Garth, Chapter 2
Jake

He looked at me, and I could see the hate that I wanted him to embrace. I took a hit from my serum, and exhaled under my breath. Yes, embrace the dark side, I muttered. I paused, allowing my whispered words to hit him like so much dead weight.   “So?” he asked, yet again.   I paused, and for dramatic effect, took another shot of serum. I finally decided to address the n00b again.   “I’m on it like vomit.”   Another one of my clever rhymes! He had no words, no witty rejoinder, no clever retort. Instead, he played the testosterone card, and could only manage to show me his

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

One Hit Wonders Are Really Important
Audrey

 Hey The Goodnight!!   On Tuesday, we took a break from the Aquapolypse (shoutout to fellow QM Carlos for that phrase) for a quiz! It was terrifyingly humid outside but that’s okay because the quiz was worth it.    Round One was a recently in stuff round, and I learned that a shit ton of cars were recalled because the air bags weren’t working. Scary! I’m a really bad driver, so this affects me.    Round Two was covers by a band called The Baseballs. Because of this round, someone on Facebook pointed out that Torn was NOT originally by Natalie Imbruglia,

I Hope Ted Nugent's Camp is On Camp Crystal Lake
Patsquatch

It is the night before Phoenix Comic Con and I am looking forward to three days of awesome comicy goodness. I am kind of nervous about the amount of money I am probably going to spend this weekend but it will be a good time. I encourage everyone who are free and are so inclined to check it out this weekend. We should all support an awesome event like this that is right here in our state.  Also, I have to leave at 7:30 in the morning so I will leave it at that. Here’s the recap: Round 1 was Can You Use It in a Sentence and it was all about spelling bees. This got the quiz off to a bit of a rocky start. I would think that it was bad that teams didn’t know much

The One with the Disney Princess
Pax

There was a Disney Princess at Quiz tonight.  She tried to disguise herself as a drunk girl in a bar, but I could see right through it. She flipped her long blonde Disney Princess hair and batted her big blue Disney Princess eyes and I'm pretty sure there were some woodland animals on her team. I never heard them talk, though, so I'm not sure how much they helped. There was also a quizzer tonight who kept drawing adorable animals on the backs of her quizzes. It was delightful. OH! And I got two bribes: cookies and churros. It’s good to the Quizmaster.   The thing I love about Pub Quiz is that I always learn so much. Here are the lessons we learned tonight.   Round

The Late Comers Last Round
Reef

So this week quiz was set to be different, I felt it in the warmth of the breeze all day. I showed up and knew what it was, the weekly specials this go round were toooo much to handle for me. Not only were the mac and cheese or burgers amazing but I tried something called Pig Candy, this divine bacon creation of sweet and savory, sticky and crunchy, we all were distracted this week by the food! One of my team who usually shows mid way round one, the Late Comers, were extremely late this week but wanted to come out and say their farewells to what they described as the best quizmaster they have ever quizzed with as they get ready to relocate to another

I suck at Bio's and remembering names so keep that in mind when we meet at Geeks. I enjoy long games of Zombies, Grand Theft and the occasional Poker night under the cool breeze of an air conditioner. Not exactly one for making the jokes, I let them come to me from the situation, like raindrops on a pools surface. If my Bio is lacking, feel free to give me suggestions as I plan on being a level 65 Quiz master in no time!!

See you at Mills on Tuesday's, if you read this, tell me at the bar! Say "I put cinnamon in my coffee too!" and you may receive receive something special from your host.
