Murder Mystery Party
Mark

Last weekend I witnessed a murder. That's right, [redacted] was brutally, and non-graphically, offed at the Disney murder mystery party I attended. I had only ever heard of such parties, so when I got the invitation to this one, I was pretty excited. Once everyone RSVeeped, our hostess sent out our character designations with some background info. Now, out of the ~25 people at the party, she was the only one who really knew what was going on. Someone had to, after all. I was assigned Dopey Dwarf. There was buzz about costumes, many of the girls showed up in dresses, some of the other characters had what appeared to be actual costumes, and then there was me. Now, I'm not saying

My patronus is a dolphin
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! Tonight’s quiz was a bundle of fun! Here are some of the highlights: There was a question about the Pottermore patronus test. In case you were wondering, my patronus is a dolphin, which I am very cool with. Dolphins are super smart and social and just generally dope, which is the best adjective I could think of to describe their general coolness. The audio round this week was a lullaby round! The songs were a bunch of lullaby covers of popular songs, and by the end I was actually yawning and sleepy. The funniest part is that 2 of my quizzers are expecting a baby soon, and they have just recently started listening to a playlist of those same

So long, farewell, at least the hills are still alive.
Miles

So. This is it. The last one. What to say? I mean, I did a little of the sentimental talking at the end there. Mud Hen is a great place. They're still open for a couple of weeks, and you should take advantage of that. In planning for tonight, I had a little bit of a conundrum as to which of the delicious appetizers I was going to eat. I settled on the pumpkin ravioli, and I don't regret it for a second. But right now I wish I also had some of the chicken waffle croquettes right here in front of me. These are quality appetizers the likes of which you are not likely to see again soon. But that's life, isn't it? We're presented

He's also currently the merch guy for the groundbreaking art-rock outfit known as The Residents.

He does parties, bar mitzvahs, weddings and what-have-you. Just don't ask what he does at them.

Tuesdays Are My Favorite
Quizmistress Amanda

  Dude. Today was the longest day ever! Hours of training for my preschool job. HOURS… Lots of good info, but I’m not used to sitting in meetings all day. So exhausting! Then it was the first day of school for me. Not the fun playdough playing, ball throwing, laughing out loud school I teach. Instead it was 2 hours of listening intently to an entire class taught in Spanish. Which I mostly understood, but made my brain hurt so much! Then an art history class that promises to be interesting. After all of that I was more than happy to show up and hang out with you guys! I love me some Tuesday night quizzing! You guys make it worthwhile

Ozzimo or The Captain

Not every quiz is a barn burner. Not every quiz has hundreds of players. Sometimes it's that rare time when almost rans meet up and coming. Where teams that haven't had much a of a chance suddenly get pole position. Tonight was one of those nights. We had teams of many sizes and shapes. Many skill levels. But all were focused on the one goal: don't fuck it up. Seriously don't fuck it up. It's like your first week on the job. you know you get a couple of freebies for being new but you want to assert your dominance to your co workers too. You want people to know that while you recently were shit, you are now "the" shit. When every point counts, you count those points hard.

I was born a poor black child... hold on... nope thinking of someone else. I was born in Suburbia. Like, smack dab. My hometown of Puyallup is famous for 3 things.

1.  1. Before Prohibition it was the hops capital of the world. (Thanks a lot Puritans!! Grrrr) But this just goes to show that when they say there's something in the water around here, they're talking about beer.

2.  2. The guy who played the Dad on "A Christmas Story" graduated from Puyallup High School and is, as far as I know, the most famous person to grow up here.

3.  3. It is the current home of your humble Quizmaster, Ozzimo.

Anyway, here's the quick and dirty. I'm class of 01 from Puyallup High School; I left high school thinking I wanted to teach Choir as that was basically the extent of my knowledge. When I got to college I found out how little these people make and how hard they had to train to do it. I immediately changed my major to Political Science and have never looked back. This is one of the main reasons not to argue with me when you think I’m wrong. I'm trained to win a fight, even if the other person is 6 kinds of right.

I started quizzing when a coworker of mine turned me on to the quiz and mentioned GWD was looking for a Tacoma quizmaster. I went through the pre-req community college course, the ritual hazing, the bleeding/burning of saint if I ever left the family, and the chopping off of my ring finger on my right hand. I'm told this is all legit and there was no need to look it up to check.

You can find me at the Forum on Tuesdays at 8:30. I highly suggest ordering the Juicy Lucy while you're there.

The Last Time I Screamed, "No" This Much, I was Playing Ninja Gaiden and Died on Stage 6-4!

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness now that Fall is in the air. During quiz, we had the smell of evening rain and the alarming cue of smoke. It was Sarah's birthday! She and the rest of Turd Ferguson had a cake and they even gave me a slice. It was velvety. They also had their friends, who last week were Turd Jorgenson, somehow amalgamate that name into Team Jorge Jensen. It was good to see everyone having a good time. I had heard that an old middle school teacher of mine might show up to quiz today. Then I played Round 7 and I cringed something fierce. I was crying

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, going on Wheel of Fortune, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

Dolly Parton Wrote What?!
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks, This was a great quiz this evening. I wasn't training anyone (shocking) so I actually had you all to myself tonight. This is good considering I was all about so many of our rounds tonight! First we had a round of lullaby covers of songs. It was a great round that taught us all an important lesson: Dolly Parton wrote and originally performed "I Will Always Love You." This was a big shock to most of the room, don't worry I still gave you points for Whitney Houston even though that is totally wrong and you should bask in your wrongness. Round 3 was 2.5 minutes of naming as many C-elements that you could. That was a lot of fun, but nothing will beat round number

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather, and I was loving being out on the patio with the cool air, and (for once) almost no humidity. For the first time in months, I didn't even break a sweat!! That's saying something when you're living in SETX!! We started off pretty well on our current event's round, so great job keeping up with your various online news sources!

Hey, Lustre Pearl East! Thanks so much for letting me quiz with you guys tonight! It was my first time at the venue and I gotta say DAMN!! So beautiful! So many games! Amazing food! And amazing drinks! So what did we learn? Well I learned in Round 1 that people who shall not be named think that the Patronus test on Pottermore was dumb. Well, to be honest that’s not completely new information to me because I have Facebook and nearly everyone had something to say about their Patronus. I’m sorry that most of you got beagles and cats and elephants or whatever. But you don’t have to hate! I mean, Harry Potter’s Patronus was

Another pretty great crowd out there tonight, you guys are definitely a great audience for this whole wacky endeavor we call pub quiz. Seriously, I only handle half of the fun- when you guys are into it, it's an absolute blast for me. Let's go to the questions! Seriously, two questions about musicals with Nazis in round one? Too bad they couldn't work in Cabaret somehow for the drei-fecta. I'm still not sure how I feel about getting a red squirrel for my patronus. It's not quite as... imposing as I'd hoped. This could explain my frequent problems with dementors, though. Gotta keep on practicing that charm. Round two was just really fun- for me, at least. I love

Tonight we paid tribute to the late great Arnold Palmer with a round on lemonade and iced tea. Though I never call it an iced tea, I'm definitely a fan of that patricular beverage. Especially with some gin in it! Yum! I first became aware of Arnold Palmer because back about close to 30 years ago, my father decided to take up golf. Why, I do not know, but he started golfing and as a result EVERY. SINGLE. FREAKIN'. SUNDAY afternoon around dinner time I'd be stuck watching golf on tvwhile we ate dinner. See kids, back in those days most families only had ONE TV. I know, right? So anyway, I saw a LOT of golf. And I've just gotta say, golf is probably the most
