The Literal Dumbest Thing to Hold a Grudge About
PatrickStoudt

The delightful round on historical missed connections last night triggered something with me...So now I’m going to beef about how I was wronged by Craigslist missed connections.  And, no, not wronged as in I posted one or was the subject of a post or that I would use that service for dating anyway (which is mostly because I was unaware of it until recently) but my problem stems from a little speech competition that I was in about a month back in an English class I was taking.  We were pitted against one another in a variety of different speech types and the one that I got was the after dinner toast.  It’s a lot less formal than one

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

WE HAD A CHUG-OFF-TIE-BREAK-AHHHH!!!! We never get to have those!  How often do we ever get to give stuff away for third place? Never, unless you get extra swag to give away.  So take those rare times, and then get a THREE WAY TIE FOR THIRD!  Heck yeah!  Because nothing says "Welcome to our own, strange, drunk little community of people that hang out in the attic together once a week to talk shit about each other while laughing at Eric-Forman's-Anorexic-Lookin'-Cousin' in ability to pronounce anything vaguely French or Grey's Anatomy related" like getting to say "I'm going to chug this beer faster than you" to a complete stranger's face...and then do it.  Worth

There's Something About Someone
Vertigo Chuck

I have about five minutes to type out this blog, so I will do what I can. I totally took a longer nap than I intended this afternoon. Woke up an hour later than I thought I would. I must have been really tired. Hopefully this means that I will be quite awake tomorrow. I think I might be turning into one of those people that needs coffee in the morning. The thing is that I don't like coffee one bit. I have tea, but nothing puts caffeine into your system quite like a cold cola. That and it is probably all the sugar and things that act like sugar that are in it like HFCS. Did you know that HFCS can make birth control less effective? I learned that in a nutrition class I took in college.   In

I'm Charles, Charlie, Chuck, whatever non-derogatory nickname you can think of for Charles. Even though I started QuizMastering at the HandleBar Tavern in December '11, I have quizzed in dozens of places for years. Our teams never quite won anything, but we always have a good time racking our brains for those little tidbits of info that GWD requires nightly.

I am definitely a geek. That picture is of me swinging from two phonebooks leafed together. Yeah, just like Mythbusters used to make. A physicist by trade, I don my mask and head out into the night partying hard and consuming various social lubricants.

Join me at my quiz and I will try to swoon you with my dulcet tones of vector calculus and Star Wars references. If you are really lucky, catch me with my Rubik's cube and I will get rid of its entropy faster than takes a grown man (or woman) to change a toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll)1.

Gordon Freeman is my hero. For the winter gift-giving season, I want a red crowbar so that I can keep it under my pillow while I sleep.

Happy September, quizlings!! The air's getting brisk and crisper, We hd quite the impressive downfall of rain and roaring winds over the weekend, and the balmy hotness of summer is slowly starting to slip. Now, don't get me wrong I love summer -- huge fan of hot weather, tank tops, sun dresses, and the nice tan that I manage to acquire each year.   But Fall? There's nothing like that tingle as the cold air enters your lungs, the smell of firewood burning, and having a legit reason to cuddle up to someone. Plus, night time rain basically rocks -- best noise to fall asleep to.   Onwards and upward, we had yet another fun one

I mean it. Do not come at me with mutant lice! I will strike you down and there won't be any Jedi bullshit either! The quiz. The place was packed. Holy Christmas.Epic is having a conference so basically Shamrock is having a conference. Something like forty teams. Well perhaps not that many, but several more than is my usual custom. For the record Dothraki and Klingon are not real languages. Although wouldnt that be a great conversation betwixt the two.

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

QuizGentleman Bryton

Five minutes before quiz and our quiz space was filled with billiard people. Nothing at all wrong with that. I just wanted to see how we would all coexist. Them, playing a serious game of pool while I break their concentration with Teapot Dome Scandal sex jokes.  See, that's why I love Geeks Who Drink. The word geek has lost much of its meaning as comic-con culture becomes mainstream. Geek is more than just Battletrek Hoglandia and Doctor Starman. Geek, by golly, is Teapot Dome Scandal sex jokes.  No sooner had I done my first chickity check check check mic check than the billiard people fled, and we had the quiz all to ourselves.

Perseverance
TomFilline

Sometimes it takes a lot of intestinal fortitude to play GWD. I don't know what that means, but I think it has something to do with perseverance. Anyway, I'm always bummed when a bunch of teams show up at the beginning of quiz only for half of them to leave before the 2nd scoring break. This did not happen tonight. Every team that played in round 1 stuck around for the entire quiz, which was awesome.   Origami Schlongs and The 4 Horsemen showed up to Blackfinn planning to run their fantasy football draft tonight, but decided to quiz instead. The 4 Horsemen even cracked the top 3, which is always impressive for first time quizzers. We had some other noteworthy teams: California

September or Zep-tember or Peptember or any of the other variations I've heard mean one thing: Summer is nearly over, football is about to start, school is back forever and the Mariners are about to miss the playoffs again. Ok. Maybe two things. The smoky hell-scape around these parts has departed with a change in the weather; however, little to no rain has fallen across the state save for some crazy storms. Fires are still raging up north and apparently an earthquake was detected somewhere near the Grand Coulee Dam ... wake me up when September ends Billie Joe.   With all those rages and laments out of the way let's move

There seems to be something missing...
Jonathan

This is the first week without our sexy table of regulars, THE BOMB DIGGITIES. I spent the first 45 minutes crying into the microphone. People all around wondering if the first round was some sort of avant garde stage show. I would stop crying long enough to say "Round 1 is.. oh my god i can't believe they are gone... What if i never see them again? Especially the one in the yoga pants?". I mean sure we had a new group that took their spot in the corner, but they showed up during round seven and wrote "nightmare on elm street" for 5 of the 8 answers. Nightmare on Elm Street was one of the answers but not on any of the ones they wrote it on. I guess all good things

What is there to say about tonight?

MAJOR.   So I’m working on buying a house. That’s weird, right?   We met with our realtor person today for the first time to discuss, you know, the normal house stuff.

May We All Live On... In a Wes Craven Nightmare
DanielCostie

How many syllables are there in Epic Rap Battles in History? Way too many. That would make much more sense if you were at The Glenn last night for pub quiz. Quite a lot of fun with a relatively smaller crowd. The best part of having fewer teams is you get more time to shoot the shit with the teams. This week I met Brian and Cassidy. Cassidy was very concerned about cheating. So I put her on cheater patrol. She didn’t convict anyone so that means I have a very honest crowd OR she was taking bribes. I believe the former to be the correct answer.   It was actually a pretty difficult night of trivia. I can tell this because no one used their Joker until the last round.

Last night, I broke to all of you the horrible news about the end of quiz at the Drag Bar. As I told you, our last Drag Bar quiz will be on Tuesday, September 22. I'm pretty torn up about it, and I could tell that you were too, which I of course appreciate. Sadly, none of our combined sadnesses will halt the inevitable, so we'll just have to make the most of the time we have left, like we're all living in a shitty movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, two actors who really should have known better.

And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

So, here’s the thing. If you decide to go to Sweden for almost two weeks and arrive home on Monday night, maybe Tuesday night is too early to do a quiz.   Actually, It was a great quiz night.
