10 years ago, I left the frozen tundra of Canada to escape the blistering cold of winter, only to move to South Texas where I now run the risk of combusting in the blistering heat of summer.  Apparently I'm drawn to extremes.  No middle of the road for this Crazy Canuck.

I was in severe need of a creative outlet and a place where yelling obsenities at people was acceptable, (and wouldn't get me fired).  Then one day I was handed a microphone by the Overlords at Geeks Who Drink.  I was instructed to "Go forth and entertain drunken nerds with wit and snark.  Oh, and ask them these quiz questions while you're there."

And so I did, and it was good.

If you quiz at a venue where video rounds are shown for round 7, then chances are it was produced by me.  I hope you enjoy them.

I have been accused of "hating everything" but I actually like many things.  I am a total geek for Star Wars, the works of Neil Gaiman, The Ramones, Shonen Knife, Nerdist, (Classic) Dr. Who, pro wrestling, good beer, poutine, British television and cheese.  All else is pointless, irrelevant and a waste of time.

I am also a part-time ninja.

It's getting close to Christmas now, and seriously, all I want for Christmas is to not have to run the damned air conditioning in my house. I mean, should it really still be in the 70's every day this close to the first day of winter? I don't think so! It makes it really difficult to get into the “spirit of Christmas” with the weather so warm when a Canadian like me would have been shovelling snow, and bundling up in heavy winter clothes for the better pat of a month by now were he back home. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I want 4 ft of snow to dump on San Antonio. I just want to be bundled in a blanket, sipping hot apple cider and wrapping the Christmas presents I bought for Paulina.

I must say that I feel pretty safe in saying that damn near everyone at quiz tonight watched Sesame Street as kids. I know I did. There were some slight differences between the Sesame Street you guys got and the one that I got back in Canada. There were different inserted bits instead of the bits that taught you Spanish words, because well there's not a whole lot of Spanish spoken in Canada. I THINK there was some French stuff in there, but I'm not totally sure I'm remembering that correctly.

But one thing I do remember was watching the episode where Mr. Hooper died. His name was an answer tonight at quiz and I'm pretty sure that a whole lot of you weren't even alive when Mr. Hooper was on the show. He was an old man who ran the store. And then he died. The creators of Sesame Street decided to address the death of the beloved Mr. Hooper in an episode. It was pretty powerful stuff with Big Bird grieving and getting angry over the death of his friend. You can find that scene on youtube, I'm sure.

I definitely prefered Cookie Monster, Grover and Oscar the Grouch if I had to pick a favourite or three. I still love watching Grover do the near/far thing to this day. Probably one of my favourite skits from the show and I still re-enact it every now and then if the situation calls for it.

I will say though that if I had to choose between Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, the Muppet Show would win every time. Hands down. Way cooler Muppets in that kooky theatre in my opinion. In fact I've been rewatching those old episodes lately, and one things I've noticed: A whole lot of special guest stars on The Muppet Show are dead now. It seems every other episode is hosted by someone who's long since died. Kind of depressing, but at the same time it's a fun way to remember some really cool actors, or comedians, or musicians.

Next week is the last quiz before Christmas, so let's spend the Eve before Christmas Eve hanging out, and quizzing and listening to some cool Christmas songs. Sound good? Cool!

You wanna know what's awesome about Geeks Who Drink? The fact that we're EVERYWHERE. If you are from major city “A” and you play Geeks Who Drink and you happen to move to major city “B”, there's a pretty damn strong chance that you can play Geeks Who Drink somewhere in your new surroundings. And what's ever cooler, is that due to events like Geek Bowl (tickets go on sale TONIGHT at 7pm Central. Go to geekbowl.brownpapertickets.com and get yours TONIGHT) the Quizmaster from city “B” might even know Quizmaster from city “A”. That's what happened tonight, and I totally love when that happens.

Quizzer Ian joined us tonight at Lion and Rose coming to us from the Seattle area. When I asked him who his former Quizmaster was, he happened to name one of my favourite people on the entire Geeks Who Drink roster, my brother from another mother, Holland Hume.

He's one of the Quizmasters that's on a very short list of people that I always look forward to and having a drink at every Geek Bowl. That tradition will most likely continue this year (February 7th at The Isleta Resort & Casino. Did I mention that tickets go on sale TONIGHT?) So it was super fun to take a picture with Ian to send to Holland. It's a tradition of sorts. Last year, the bartender from one of my other hosting venues made a trip to Tacoma, Washington and ended up at Holland's quiz one night. She told him where she knew Geeks Who Drink from, and so that night, I suddenly get an email late at night with Holland and said bartender flipping me off with the caption: “Greetings from Tacoma, bitch!” So now, at long last, I get to return the favor. Love ya, brother.

I hope everyone has a great week. Don't forget to get your hands on your Geek Bowl IX tickets (which go on sale TONIGHT).

I'm left-handed. It's true. I'm an odd ball. I'm of the 10% of the world's population that is left-handed. I get it from my great grandfather, I think. He was left-handed. Technically though he was ambidexterious. But that's only because back in his day, being left-handed was “of the devil” and they attempted to beat the left-handedness out of him. Ah, the good ol' days. I'm one of the few in my family that is left-handed. I just wish more of the world was built with lefties in mind.

Ever try to use a can opener with your left hand? Sucks doesnt' it. Or how about that mouse you use every day at your computer? That's really tough to do even after you go through the bother of reconfiguring the buttons on it. So what's a lefty to do in a world like this? Unfortunately you need to adapt, and that typically means learn to do shit with your right hand.

Over the course of my life, I've learned to do a lot of things with my right hand. Typically anything that involves strength. In that sense my right has become dominant. If I'm throwing a ball, or batting, or golfing or shoveling. All done with my right doing most of the work. In school when I was a kid, and I had to cut paper, man that was a nightmare. There was only ever like, one pair of left handed scissors. So I had to learn how to use scissors with my right, which I now do to this day. They even had “training scissors” with four holes. Two for your fingers and two for the teacher's fingers and she'd cut the paper while you essentially go through the motions.

Dexterous tasks like using a fork, or writing, is all with my left. But now that I think about it, there's not much else that I actually do with my left other than write or eat. I guess in the modern era, they don't beat it out of you, they just force you to use your right instead in the hopes that you just stop. Assimilation! You WILL be one of us!

It's weird when a member of a team that enjoys giving me shit about stuff in a fun sort of way is missing at quiz. But what's funny is when the rest of that team bands together to pick up the slack and try and give you shit in the manner of the missing teammate. You did good gang. Way to give me shit while managing to take funny jabs at your missing teammate. It's all in good fun, and I love what you all bring to quiz.

So, quick announcement before we take off. Chances are that we won't have quiz next Tuesday. Lion and Rose is celebrating their 10th anniversary, so your humble Quizmaster will be given the night off. I don't have it confirmed yet, but it looks like that's what is going to happen. But we'll be back again in two weeks. So make sure you are on the email list, or are on the facebook page that I have set up for the quiz at Lion and Rose – Broadway. You'll find the link below. It's a great way to find out about things like cancellations and such.

Have a great week gang!
