Three Day Weekend!
Justin Mazouat

It was a beautiful night at Fado last night. Everyone was out on the patio, enjoying the nice weather, and the sounds of the Rockies winning just next door. We went back to the 00's with our audio round, in which many whiny bands complained about being friendzoned. Apologies if that wasn't your era, but all the teams did at least alright, so it's all good!   Our second place team was up for hi-lo, and made it a good part of the way through, but the last series of cards was PAINFUL, so next week, the pot is up to $250! Make sure you get on it!   We have a three day weekend, so enjoy the weather, enjoy the outdoors, and I'll

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 ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

So what's the deal with Kim Davis? So she's going to jail and I'm not sure how I feel. On the one hand, she totally broke the law and had it coming but on the other, she now's gonna bring in them bigot bucks in the form of a book that's probably being ghostwritten as we speak. How soon until she has her own TV show on Fox News? And why is it that Republicans pick the least charismatic martyrs? I hate it. Btw, none of their presidential nominees have stood up for the gay couple. Keep this in mind, Rand Paul fans...

Middle-Aged Dirtbag
Tronald Dump

While not technically over, summer is pretty much kaput by the time September rolls around, which, if you spend the majority of your time in a drug-induced fog like I do, you may not have been aware of. Seriously, the other day I was like what, it’s September 1st? What year is it? 2001? I feel like I need warn someone about something. Or maybe I’ll just go chase this butterfly around the yard instead. I probably shouldn’t have stopped taking my doctor-prescribed meds. What’s the square root of the void? I spilt muh milkshake in muh lap. Big ups to Ginger Bear for getting one last Rumble win in (are we done with that? I think we’re done

The 90s Strike Back
Hunter

In the early 90s, I was a closed-captions editor. Friday nights were always frantic for us because the various networks would never deliver the Saturday morning cartoons for us to work on until Friday nights. To give some perspective, at least at that time, it would take us editors about 8 hours to caption a 20- to 25-minute show (the length of a half-hour show minus the commercials). To get the shows done in rapid time (because we had to get the shows, edited, proofed, ready for encoding by midnight), we'd all get about 5 minutes of a show to edit and then go do 5 minutes of the next show. In addition to the Saturday cartoons, we had an exclusive contract with Disney and also had to do all

I Know Why the Cage Bird Quizzes

Civic freedom, seizure-inducing digital theme songs, and washed up child stars were in the hopper last night at Wee Katie’s. On Wednesday night, I actually PLAYED Geeks Who Drink trivia for the first time. I now know what it is like to be on the other end of this relationship. Its almost like hearing a recording of your own voice and going ‘do I really sound like that?’   We had some sharp competition with some Geeks Who Drink seasoned veterans participating at the pub. The other teams were quick to up their game but by the end, the most gratuitous team reigned supreme. Team Wang Chung was awarded with the honorable mention of third place.

Jessie's Girl Was a Tease!!
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

Being put in the friend zone sucks. Having a song written about it must suck even more. I mean seriously, think a out it. If this is something that has never happened to you, then frankly, you won't get it. It's the equivalent of of doing an entire school project that was meant to be done as a group, and then you receive an F while everyone else gets an A+. It's like getting a participation trophy after having an MVP type season.   I once had the biggest crush on a girl in college and would listen to her go on for hours about her homework and her family and her problems, and then I would watch her oogle over a dozen different guys that only interest in her was,

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

Hola, People of Rapture!   What a well-rounded night of questions! You got some sports, you got some fashion, you got some science, you got a shirtless photo of the little kid form Jerry Maguire. What more could you possibly want out of a pub quiz? NOTHING.   In a respectable 6th place, we had The Lone Ranger and Tonto, who may have learned that flattery alone won’t get you far. But keep coming! There’s nowhere to go but up! In 5th, we had Bumble Alone! Bumble Alone also deserves credit for most inventive answer sheet delivery and for sending a pregnant woman running down the stairs to

Benjamin the Mouse
Weazel

So as you all know, I was in Hotlanta this week for a conference. It was fun, exhausting, and lots of work but totally worth it. Since I was going to be out of town all week, I came into the office the weekend before to get a few things done. I brought my dog, Mr. Montague, with me because why not? It’s super productive to work in the office alone, and I was plugging away getting a ton done. At some point, Mr. Monty wandered away from my desk and was doing his own thing exploring the office. A few minutes later, I got up to get something off the printer and noticed a fuzzy ball near a coworker’s desk. Being that Monty

Force You To Buy Stuff Friday
Cousin Chet

Yes, that’s right the Dodgers got no-hit twice last week. No, I am not thrilled about. But guess what? We’re still six and a half games ahead of everyone else in the division. And we are going to the playoffs. And then we’re going to be eliminated swiftly. Why am I saying this? Because I’m a realist. It would be really nice if we advanced in the playoffs and maybe even won the Series, but come on. Do we really think it’s going to happen? Best case scenario would be that the Giants don’t make the playoffs. And that the Cardinals not win another World Series. Their fans are unbearable. Particularly their fans who are friends of mine. So, it’s

Pop punk bands are perfect for Friend Zoning
McFly

Or so it seemed in last night's round 2. It does make perfect sense, because pop-punk of the 90s and early 2000s was all about emo lyrics. The most ridiculous of the list in round 2 were probably Sk8er Boi, Teenage Dirtbag and Flavor of the Week. I have the worst memory of the song Teenage Dirtbag, not that it wouldn't have left a dirty taste in my mouth otherwise. I went to a summer camp three years in high school for our choir group. It sounds lame and probably weird, but it was the best fucking thing ever. You can ask everybody that went. The first thing we always looked forward to was that camp. Hardly any adults. We were out in cabins in the middle of nowhere. About 90 high school kids

So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

I'll give it away in the next couple weeks. You'll take my sloppy puzzle seconds and like it.

The seasons have officially changed, and with that the mood. Tonight was a quick and quiet night of trivia. We busted it out it record time and everybody ran home to warm up. Well we at least covered the important things, we quizzed, we paid respect to Wes Craven (Three times) and we drank…so it was a success! We’ll all adjust to the changes around us and we’ll do it again next week! And we’ll all be in a better place because Kim Davis is in jail!!
