College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

What a lovely night we had. Some prominent teams were missing but some prominent tears won too so not bad. We did have that incident where a random man came in off the street to give everyone a free answer, use the bathroom and leave, but it was mostly funny. Apparently I gave him dagger eyes without even realizing it. We even had some people stick around after to hang out at the bar. This time I wanted everyone to leave so I could watch “Wahlburgers” though. Let’s talk about the quiz a little.

Round 1: The only postage stamps I care about are the ones that come out during February for Black History Month. I always make a trip to the post office to buy them. If you were playing GWD last winter you know what I mean. Something Offensive thought Sean Penn played city councilman, Nicole Simpson.

Round 2: Did you know that our kitchen manager, Greenler, went to his 100th Phish show this summer? i didn’t think that was possible for one human being but he did it, and he’s definitely not alone. Do you remember when Jerry Garcia died? If not, you’re too young to hang out with me.

Round 3: I had a Plymouth Reliant with bucket seats and AM radio only. Not even a tape deck. But I found a cool AM station that played original hits that were being remade and some other oldies. One song it played all the damn time was “Volare;” so I have a soft spot in my heart for that song.

Round 4: There are so many current events that I have opinions on this week but let’s keep it positive and talk about Mo’Ne Davis. I’m putting her jersey and poster on my Christmas list this year. I want to donate to her biopic Kickstarter campaign. I want her to chill out and make sure she doesn’t wear herself out before making it big. I have never loved an athlete this much. OK maybe Tiger Woods but that was a long time ago.

Round 6: I watched “True Blood” for a couple seasons but it just got so gross I couldn’t handle it anymore. Maybe one day I’ll go back and finish. I haven’t heard good things though. Food Nerds incorrectly guessed Idris Elba for one of these and I realized he should’ve totally been part of the round, but mostly so I could rail on you again for not having watched “The Wire.”

Round 7: In The Social Network they’re talking about that algorithm for rating girls on campus but I remember in college going to hot or not dot com all the time and rating total strangers who I don’t think were even necessarily college students. Is it supposed to be a riff on that? What a dumb website.

Round 8: I had to Google NATO alphabet. I didn’t know that’s what the radio alphabet language was called. It seems like a good one to memorize though. I only know the beginning of it and the letters in that Wilco album title. Something Offensive has some disturbing thoughts about what the bible says on love. I don’t want to share them with you. 

Congrats to tonight’s winners, who got a perfect round 2 and a near perfect round 8. Don’t make fun of them for putting Rio de Janeiro because they kicked all our butts tonight. Second wasn’t so bad either with Henry James Brown getting more in second this week than first got last week.  Score.

I’ll see you all next time.

Yours for now, Quizler

Well then. I thought we had a wonderful quiz going tonight. We were all having fun, cheering for ourselves, booing too soon team names, and whatnot. Then I make one little comment about hanging out after and everyone leaves. I’m not talking the normal “everyone” that means most people but there are still stragglers chillin out, I mean “the former meaning of literally” everyone. I had the whole bar to myself and Maeghen and I watched “Wahlburgers” in peace. Y’all missed out! Well I guess you’re here to hear about the quiz.

Round 1: Have you noticed that the highway cops these days are all driving black Dodges? I still get nervous when I see a Crown Vic but I also get nervous every time I see a rack on top of a car. Even if they were all cops there’s no reason for me to get nervous because I’m not the ticketed type. I think since this was a weight round a lot of you just figured John Candy was going to be in it. He wasn’t. We also had a lot of teams beating themselves up over Challenger vs. Charger. 

Round 2: Once at summer camp we made a spoof of This is Spinal Tap, about the camp director’s husband’s Jewish band, called This is Safam. It was the funniest spoof of a genre spoof ever made. Unfortunately I do not have a copy but try to imagine 12-15 year old kids making jokes based on Spinal Tap. Also I played their music for our dance off tonight. In other news, I think it’s high time y’all learn how to spell Boyz II Men.

Round 3: Coincidentally I watched Mrs. Doubtfire last week. My favorite part of watching it at the park was hearing little kids laughing at it for the first time. This round was way better for you guys than last week’s Woody Harrelson round. The surprises for most teams were Jumanji and Dead Poet’s Society even though I try to tell you time and again that the round title never gives away an answer.

Round 4: Is Chad Kroeger a Skater Boi? I hope Avril finally found that perfect one. You seemed pretty mad about this round in general. Scores weren't bad though, and Isotopes got all 8.

Round 5: Which of those rat movies creeps you out the most? For me it’s Ratatouille. I tried to suspend my disbelief but I just kept gagging at the site of mice in the kitchen. I read The Secret of NIMH recently-ish and was surprised by what it was about. In any case, books about animals trying not to get eaten constantly are pretty stressful.

Round 6: Pune is a place in India, and I’m sorry to hear that people died in a natural disaster there. I used to work in international admissions and I remember the first time I got a student’s degree from “the University of Pune.” I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard and immediately wanted to meet the guy who had a bachelor of arts from the University of Pune. Turns out it’s not so rare a thing. We got a lot of people thinking Kansas had all the Earthquakes. The HBO show host was a toss up between John Oliver and Bill Maher you you guys were split in half. 

Round 7: Two Birdcage answers in one quiz! I love that movie so much and it’s mostly due to Hank Azaria, who is never allowed to die. DO YOU HEAR ME, HANK? The first time I saw “A Streetcar Named Desire” the play was in college with my friend MacDemy as the guy who yells “Stella.” I didn’t know it wasn’t supposed to be a comedy because the only thing I’d ever know about it was from “The Simpsons” and the real thing did not live up to Marge and Apu. My friend was good though. He’s a pop star now.

Round 8: I didn’t think it was possible but this week I went to Vermont and didn’t have any Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Instead I came back to NH for some Kimball’s. A bunch of you think Ben & Jerry would name a flavor in honor of Paula Deen. And it seems as though Chyna has a sex tape I don’t know about because she was a common guess. 

The dance off for second was pretty damn good I’d say. Both teams were well represented but isotopes’ classic smooth moves couldn’t contend with Flower Arrangers ‘special’ style.

I guess I’ll see you next week for like exactly two hours. I’m going to enjoy the next episode of “Wahlburgers” with a cold beer, and maybe some nachos.

Yours for now, Quizler

Hey gang. Good work tonight. We had some high scores and only one team didn’t get double digits in round two. And only one round where no one got 8. Not bad at all. The music might not have been the best - sorry for the Limp Bizkit, but if you just give me some enthusiasm I won’t have to punish you. You bring it on yourselves. Let’s talk about my opinion now.

Round 1: I love me some Kinder Eggs. How can you go wrong with tiny plastic pieces inside a chocolate egg? They usually involve one section of a whole toy and I’ve never gotten another section of the same toy. The chocolate is good though. The night’s winners, We Are Groot, had the best answer this round with “Jay-Z” instead of Billie Jean King.

Round 2: Is there any group more despicable than Westboro Baptists? Nope. Why is there music involved? Anyway, remember when Bette Midler performed “Wind Beneath My Wings” at the Oscars…this year? When that song came out was it sad or did it go instantly to cheesy? I think maybe I legitimately liked it once.

Round 3: This was the worst round of the night for you guys. Our highest score was 5 from Poopcats, and Ebola Soup. The funny thing about this round is I’ve seen 8 of those 10 movies but they just aren’t memorable, and Woody Harrelson is especially not memorable in most of them. I can’t even picture him in half of them. He peaked in “Cheers.”

Round 4: I’m pretty sure everyone got Candlepin because you all are from New England or have someone on your team that grew up around here. Best answer for this round goes to Bukkake for thinking The Big Lebowski was inspired by J.K. Rowling, and that Night at the Roxbury won two Oscars. William Shakesparagus was the only team to get all 8 on this one because they knew it wasn’t J.K. Rowling.

Round 6: No one got 8 on this round but our top 3 teams of the night got 7. Bukkake was the only team to hate this round so much that they answered with all WWII dictators. I have nothing else to comment because I’m not big on philosophy beyond loving Calvin and Hobbes the comic strip. 

Round 7: Once again our top 2 teams dominated this round. I was surprised by how many of you thought Iron Man was “ER.” The rest were pretty standard. I’ve seen all of them, which isn’t really a surprise. I tried to manipulate a Ferris Buller quote in the blog last week but no one said anything so I’m not sure if you noticed.

Round 8: Bad news to those of you who thought the iPod mini still exists. It lasted about 6 months and I was the one dumb enough to buy it. They didn’t even make cases for them. It was my first Apple product too. Somehow I went back for more though. iPod mini is the gateway Apple. Many of you made up good elements that start with I but my favorite go to Shakesparagus with “Iillium” and “Igmium.” They’re philosophers not scientists. 

I heard someone say that August is the Sunday of summer and tonight kinda felt like that. Let’s amp up the energy next week, ok guys?

Yours for now, Quizler
