Hello!

I started playing quiz with GWD at the Maple Leaf Pub. I heard they were in search of quizmasters and decided to audition. I am quite the social butterfly. so I figured: meet new people, free booze, and quiz. What more could a girl ask for?

By day, I am a middle school Industrial Technology Teacher- yes 12-14 year olds and power tools. I'm an Aggie (WHOOP!), a dog lover, and a scorpio. My favorite color is purple and one day I hope to venture to Costa Rica, Italy, and Australia. That's me in a nutshell.

Heyo! Well, after a two week hiatus, I'm am more than happy to back as your quizmaster. I was super exhausted from the first week of school and then last week we had open house. Believe me, I'd much rather have been at MLP for some quiz action. Tonight was fun, one of my quizzers randomly was my mom's best friend's son. We basically grew up alongside each other kind of like cousins. I was a few years older and I still remember changing his diapers and babysitting him. And now he's graduated college and old enough to drink. Fuck I'm getting old!

Meanwhile during quiz tonight, we had rounds where She fed me science, song samples and samplers, sick fuck Slim, Jacob & Sons, stepdads, toilet humor, and some JJ Abrams nonsense. Throw in some Voldemort, Barely legals, and Muppets for Random Knowledge and we have a game folks!

For the first time ever, we had a 3 way tie for first. Whats the easiest way to settle this? DANCE OFF!!! I have to say I was impressed, especially with the ladies! The Brunch Club took 1st with Dick Fingers! a close second. Also, shout out to Brunch Club for winning the Houston Rumble in the Pub this past weekend. 

Thanks for coming out!
See y'all next Thursday :)

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks).

I start this missive on the way home on the bus. After a few tasty ciders, a kamikaze, and a snakebite a bus ride home is probably a prudent choice, especially since I managed to slice my leg open on my bicycle pedal just after I boarded the train. There was a lurch when I wasn't quite balanced yet and then the pedal "bit" me. Fortunately I didn't fall on the ground, but it was apparently dorky enough looking that the lady sitting near me declared that I was "throwed off". Not the first time I've been called that, lady, believe me. I was grateful that I only had to wait 3 stops before disembarking the train since no less than three others passengers seemed to be mesmerized by the stream of blood running down my leg. When someone stares at your blood that intently at midnight see if your mind doesn't conjure vampire scenarios like mine was doing. I bet my cider flavored plasma would been a tasty treat. I think I'll stop with this line of thinking now, but feel free to make up the ending to this story if you want. Is it weird that my Pandora started playing ACDC's "Back In Black" just now?

Anyway, I was very happy that Desirée asked if I'd sub for her tonight. The Maple Leaf is an iconic location for Geeks Who Drink pub quizzes: possibly the oldest and longest running venue in Houston. I've quizzed here on several occasions and even watched a group of nervous future quizmasters audition here, but tonight was my first time in the penalty box. One generous young lady even stated that I "owned that penalty box". Thank you, young lady. That made my night.

Lots of fun ensued tonight.

My original quiz partner, Lawrence, showed up with his witty brother, Chad, and Chad's pretty girlfriend; they managed to definitively take second place with a whopping 82 points that would be good enough for 1st place at most venues.

We learned from one team that IKEA markets a line of tasty treats made from dingleberries; I didn't think the Swedes were THAT weird. (Okay, now I'm home after finishing the bus ride and a brisk 1-mile bicycle ride through the humid darkness of Willowbend.)

Several teams are under the impression that the people of Tibet import llamas and alpacas from South America to race for the annual Shoton festival in Llasa (or maybe they just thought Llasa was near Machu Picchu; common mistake. Himalayas, Andes; tomatoes, watermelons.) Actually, the really don't import any camelids from Peru. They ride yaks.

I think I'll go to bed now. See you in the morning.

I'm back. 

So, we didn’t really talk about the elephant in the room. I’m sure that you’ve all heard that Betty White dyed peacefully in her home just a few days ago. But don’t get too upset. Lots of old ladies color their hair at home. She doesn’t want anyone to know that she’s really a brunette.

Oh, you mean that elephant. Here’s what I had to say about the passing of the late great comedian, Joan Rivers…

I can never die.

Greetings All!

Kevin here.

Your resident substitute Quiz-Master.

I was happy enough to step in for the night to Quiz you all wonderful people at The Maple Leaf, even if I felt like I was sitting in Time-Out the entire night whilst sitting in the penalty box.

We had 10 teams battle it out for supremacy last night. 

But first.

Let's review.

It was troubling to grade round 3 tonight, as most of you all didn't know the difference between Marvel and DC.

Marvel is like ... way better, y'all! WAY BETTER! YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW!

The better of you got four points this round. Tsk Tsk.

You rocked current events though, so congrats on that. Way to pay attention to the actual world and not the one in the pages of a comic book.

... it doesn't make you better.

Close game tonight among the top teams.

But in the end:

Machine Shope Murder Squad placed second with 64 points.

And

The Quizmaster Said Fuck finished with 69 points.

 

It's true.

I did.

Many, many, ... many times.

Thanks for having me, Maple Leaf.

You were a great crowd, you were geeks, and you drank like it.

If you won I hope you celebrated mightily. 

As for myself, I decided to crack open a bottle of wine. -_-

Life will return to normal for you next week!

... I hope so.

 

-Kevin
