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.

Happy Earth Day, y’all! I saw a man flick his cigarette out of his car today and almost lost my shit. Most days I would lose my shit anyway but it’s just especially bad on Earth Day. C’mon! It seems like a lot of people were out celebrating tonight. We had a great group at the Stone Church though. It’s going to be sad next week without Jaime but maybe the rest of you will have a better chance of winning. She was always on top of those Babysitter Club questions and old song questions. We’ll miss you, Jaime! Congrats to So Hard and Mojo Hojo for both scoring over 80 points to tie and then killing the sudden death round. They were both debating between two answers and in the end Mojo Hojo went with the right one. Impressive.

Some quiz thoughts:

Remember that episode of “the Simpsons” where there’s a gifted class and that one kid speaks entirely in palindromes? “O Memsahib, Bart. Rabbi has memo.” That one has always stuck with me and it wasn’t until I started reading this book last week that I learned memsahib is a woman, like “ma’am.” I thought it meant something closer to “guru.” Reading is educational, people, even YA!

You know what was one of the best commercials ever? The one for that game, “Crossfire.” You know you know the song. “Crossfire! You’ll get caught in the…crossfire…crossfiiiiiire!” Also, I loved that game. I used to fight with my friend while playing it all the time. So fun.

How come Greg Kinnear has done such a good job transitioning from comedy to drama? I’ll tell you one thing, I do not want to see a drama starring Jim Carey, but I love me a few Greg Kinnear movies, not least of all, You’ve got Mail, which is not so much a drama, but he’s not exactly funny in it.

Have you heard of the deadly durian fruit? It’s smell is so bad that it’s banned from the subway in Singapore (which isn’t so strange since Singapore is the land of laws). But supposedly the fruit kills people by falling on people’s heads. I don’t fear death too much but I do not want to die in a soap opera way like fruit to the head or falling down an elevator shaft.

Did you hear that Netflix is coming out with a new “Planet Earth” series? I’m so very excited. I hope it’s narrated by a Brit. Or actual Brit, viz. Bret Mackenzie. 

My favorite time a person did not swear in a movie is in The Goonies at the end [spoiler alert] when the adults all see the ship sinking and the one guy (maybe he’s the cop?) goes “holy Mary, mother of G-d” real slow-like. So good.

I have seen Son of the Mask because my friend’s music was bought for it. He got royalties for that movie! Ok, so probably not anything as high as a dollar total, because who else has seen it? We only watched to hear the song. Shia Labeouf would’ve been great in that movie if he could’ve done it during his “Even Stevens” time. 

Best answers of the night:

Awesome Possum in round 2 with “Even Stevens” as a song name, because, duh!

Neurotic Threshold in round 6 with an enye because Lisbonye is a thing?

Longest Yard in round 7 with Freedon Writers  because I told thought of “Ghost Writers!”

Have a lovely week and enjoy your Earth!

Are you guys sad that you missed a wild Tuesday night at the Stone Church with Chris Christie? I shook his hand and spoke with his wife. I told her I was the quizmaster here and she said, “you entertain people?” all surprised-like. Yes, ma’am! This is how I make my living so please tell your husband not to repeal Obamacare! 

You know how when you’re traveling, people are always asking where you’re from? I like to just say the first place that comes to mind, hoping they don’t know much about it so I don’t get caught, but if I do get caught it’s not a big deal because they’re strangers. In December I was watching “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” so recently when I was in Hong Kong I told a guy I was from Minneapolis. It was thrilling because even though I’ve been there once, I really couldn’t answer a damn question about it. I never understood why people don’t do this more often. No one actually cares where you’re from, they just want to have a conversation. And there’s no way I”m going to spend 10 minutes trying to explain to someone how I’m from a town near Portsmouth, which is in a state near Boston. Actually, I told a guy from England that I was from New England and he insisted that I tell him where because the towns are similar in England. When I said Portsmouth he nearly lost his shit because he was from Portsmouth in old England. It’s not that crazy really. 

I have never related to the dread of tax season. My mother is a CPA so I don’t have to do anything except forward her my W2s when they arrive. And then a couple weeks later I get a nice little sum of money directly deposited into my bank account. Aren’t you guys, my peers, in a similar boat? I doubt too many of you are in those elite tax brackets where you have to pay taxes. Or maybe you’re the foolish type who don’t get your taxes taken out during the year because you want the money now instead of later. Or maybe your mom does something less useful like, say, engineering, or teaching, or dental hygienist. Well sucks to be you because I already got my refund and spent it. 

At my prom we all got a picture frame with the date and theme printed on it so we could put our prom picture in it and keep that awkward photo forever. When I came back from college one year I noticed a little piece of paper in the back of mine, behind the picture. It said “you’re still fat” with a drawing of a tree. I do not know who did that or why but I will always love it. Especially because I was not fat at my prom. I was pasty though. 

Well it was a pretty rowdy and exciting night here. Nice work to Mojo Hojo who won without even using their joker in their best round (they used it in their second best). So Hard did a nice job too coming in second even though they were so sure about Tangled. Oh well. See you guys next week with your fat tax refunds!

Ok so it’s snowing but not the good kind of soft, dry snow that you can blow off your car with a light breath. The kind that, no matter which direction you’re facing, is always in your face and under your hood and so so wet that the tops of your boots soak through to your socks. It seems like we had only good snow this winter until now. But I have to say it’s nice to see the snow again. I feel a bit like I have Stockholm syndrome but I do love the snow and I’m worried that next year we won’t get any so we have to appreciate it while we have it. Thanks for braving it tonight to come out and have some quiz fun with me! The game didn’t have too much placement change throughout the night. Scarfed stayed on top despite having that odd name, and What Month thought they might tie but quickly lowered into second place. My favorite team name of the night was definitely So Hard because the traffic has gotten bad fast, hasn’t it? I appreciate There’s Something including me in their fun too though.

Anywho, doesn’t Fibonacci’s number have something to do with Greek letters? How come that wasn’t part of the quiz? I remember doing a whole project about it in some class called “discreet math” that we had to nickname “Jack Math” because it wasn’t fun to shorten “discreet.”

Is anyone upset about not going to Indiana because of their discrimination laws? I mean, it’s not like it’s Orlando, or Chicago, or even Houston. Who’s trying to go to Indiana? It’s the New Jersey of the midwest. I don’t want them to discriminate against anyone but boycotting the state isn’t really putting me out in any way.

“Suddenly Seymour, is standing beside meeee” damn that’s a good movie. I’m gonna go watch it.

There was a month or so where I couldn’t speak to a person without quoting “Arrested Development.” I don’t know if I even remember that much about it now. I’ll never forget frontispiece though.

I went to see Aziz Ansari film one of his standup shows in LA. It was a Comedy central one and I went because he tweeted that it was free that night. There were a few of famous people there too. Natalie Portman was seating somewhere behind me and she noticed that I kept looking back to make sure it was her. I sat next to an actress who plays tiny roles on all the dramas but also was in the finale of “Dollhouse,” which is pretty cool. She had just come from the wrapping of The Last Airbender movie and told me it was gonna be amazing and she was trying out for the part of Azula. I was really excited. Then I saw the movie and immediately unfriended her on Facebook and unfollowed her on Twitter because the only movie worse is Bridget Jones 2. She never got to try out for Azula because even though there are 7 Fast and Furious movies, Airbender was so bad that people probably asked for their money back in droves. Obviously I’m still mad about how bad it was.

We are the only Geeks Who Drink venue in the U.S. who should know the only president from NH because we are the only venue in NH. We are the Franklin Pierce of GWD! 

My favorite answers of the night are: 

Diane Canada with Paul Blart because that certainly is an unnecessary sequel! Maybe I shouldn’t knock it ’til I try it.

This weird thing happened in round 4 where two teams made a pronunciation joke for the same question and I’m wondering if I’m missing something. Mojo Hojo said Jeb is “pronounced ‘Heb’” and Matzah Ballin’ said Inuit “sounds like Idiot.” They’re not the same joke, and one of the answers is wrong, but still, a strange coincidence.

Katzenjammer with the famous Monet: “Smiley Face.” Didn’t Forest Gump invent that?

Oh and a few teams put Where the Heart Is in round seven, which reminded me that that’s my favorite Natalie Portman movie. Whatever happened to Ashley Judd? My hope is that she made enough money and decided to retire, and not what I fear happened, that her look is no longer relevant in today’s Hollywood.

Thanks again for playing and I’ll see you all next week, unless the storms keep getting worse.

Yours for now, Quizler
