So, my car's in the shop. She got new struts and brakes, and I can't wait to go pick her up and see how she drives now. Having a car in the shop does lead to some trouble, though, especially when you only have the one vehicle. Thanks to my Dad, who was able to give me a lift home last night! Woo!
Quiz was definitely unique last night. It was fun being able to walk around and interact a little more with the crowd! I also managed to drink a bit more IPA than usual. That would account for the headache.
My roommate is reading in the other room and keeps laughing. I think I know what part of the book he's at.
A$$^3 (Ass Cubed?) snagged First by one point beating the Fighting Mongooses and This Music Round Sucks. It was a close finish, and we had a tie for sec on leading into Round 8.

Yesterday was a momentous day. A long awaited day, indeed, for this particular Quizmaster. It was the launch day for a video game that I have eagerly expecting for for a long time: the new Borderlands game. This game was released at midnight yesterday, and by the time you read this I will have logged about thirteen hours playing so far, across two characters.
This is the best game ever. I love Borderlands the franchise to death, and I've played it more than any other videogame, and I have to say, gameplay-wise, 2k Australia have made a hell of a game. The double jump mechanic makes it feel as fast paced and mobile as Destiny, but the loot is SO MUCH BETTER. I don't know if it was luck, or what, but I picked up a purple pistol (Maliwan Binary Aegis, Fire) and ooh baby, it wrecks face. I also encountered my first legendary yesterday, but couldn't afford it. Such is life; I didn't need a SMG that freezes my enemies into a block of ice at all, so thanks for teasing me with it, game!
Quiz was really fun last night! I thought all of the rounds were pretty interesting, and a lot of the scores were really close all night. 404 Team Name Not Found ended up as the winner after holding first place all night. Player1 and Player 2 battled it out all night, but P1 slipped behind in round 7, leaving Player 2 in Second. A T and 2 D's (I have no idea) managed to claim Third by a narrow margin.

Nahhh. My picture edits are flawless. There is NO WAY anyone will ever find faults with one of my photoshops. Everything looks realistic and perfect, because of my attention to detail. I'm so good at Photoshop, I don't even use it. I use Preview. Image manipulation of the gods, right there! And, it's free!
Today was spent (not wasted) catching up with The Legend of Korra. I'm on Book 2, with one episode left. For those unaware, it's a show broadcast by Nick , and the sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender. For those further unaware, Avatar, and Korra as well, are "kids shows", that, in my opinion, are dismissed by adults way too much. I think it's an all ages show, and there are some really good talking points if you do have kids, and want to talk to them about, say, war profiteering. Believe it or not, this ends up being a major subplot, which is pretty cool for a show about magical kung-fu. I highly recommend enjoying this show with a kid between 6 to whatever years old they are. Or by yourself. It's that good, I promise.
It's also very funny, especially with subtle, throwback jokes -- sometimes they're dumb, but I laughed way too hard at one of these lines today.
Let's talk about Quiz! I have to give a shoutout to The Dirty Shoes for never turning in an empty answer sheet; if they don't know the answer to a question, they make one up, and it's pretty funny. I'm amused!
A$$ was the overall winner tonight, and I played the Benny Hill theme in their honor, at their request. If you have a team theme song you'd like to hear played upon your victory, let me know! (Before the end of quiz, so I can find it!) Uncle Ben? Meet the Waynes! pulled second place, and Caulk Of Steel snagged the third place spot.
Next week's consolation prize is a mystery! If you start at round 1 and manage to end up in last place, you can win this bad boy. This week's prize was a copy of Foundation files regarding SCP-1425. Spooky!
See you next week, and if you have a song request, leave it in the comments!
