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.

Tonight we had a round about remakes and a round about Russell Crowe which some could have crossed over to either round. Let me just take some time to tell you that I feel like Russell Crowe is one of the greatest actors of our time. Yes, he often plays a particular role, the tough guy, but he's so damn good at it. Anyone who disagrees with me needs to go home and watch Gladiator again. Also, I feel like the remake of 3:10 to Yuma was also under-rated. It was pretty good as far as westerns go. Plus you get the privilage of seeing a good and grizzly Christian Bale. I never saw the original but I liked that movie. 

Now as far as remakes go, here are a few that i feel are better than the original (yes i'm a dork and pulled up a wikipedia list and I'm skimming through it). Sadly the first one that comes to mind is Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Yes, I know, Jessica Biel, blah blah blah, but have you seen the original? Its pretty bad. Some others I would include are The Departed, Dawn of the Dead, Gone in 60 Seconds, Homeward Bound, House on Haunted Hill (a lot of horror apparently gets remade), The Last House on the Left, Little Shop of Horrors, The Mummy, Thir13en Ghosts (I have a secret crush on Matthew Lillard), and I'm sure there are more but this is what was on the list that I had seen both.


So enough of my rambling, how about quiz? You already know that there were rounds on remakes and Crowe. There were also rounds on sidekicks, some kick-ass mash-ups, Jesus is ALWAYS the answers, Presidential Birth Places, and some clever sportsy before-and-afters. Throw in some SOCKS, currency, itchy butt, and Michael Bay and we have a game folks!
Here's a tip from me to you: watch South Park! Seriously, they hit on so much, I think I could have referenced it like 10 times in tonight's quiz. That shit's relevant! 

Once again, The Brunch Club led the pack the entire night. CH3-CH2-OH got second but left before they claimed their prize so Lorenzo Lamas's Snake Eaters got the spoils! Always stick around guys! Jokers and 16 point round can change the game last minute. Don't forget about the Star Wars quiz coming up Mat the Fourth. 

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

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

First of all, I would like to point out the beautiful symmetry of being honored to host this quiz. The first time I ever played a Geeks Who Drink quiz was at the little round table under the neon Bud Light sign in the back corner of the Maple Leaf Pub. Our team name was “Team Wilfred Brimley: You May Outscore Us, But You'll Never Diabetes.” I don't remember if we won or not. I think we did. Anyways, Maple Leaf Pub is also where I auditioned to be a quizmaster. And now, here I am, hosting a themed quiz for you all! It was very exciting for me, and I hope you guys had fun!

I would also like to send out a huge thank you to both Desiree and Dan. I could not have even come close to handling this if you guys had not been there to help. You Maple Leaf Pub regulars have an awesome quizmistress, and I'm not just saying that because she kept feeding me beers. Ok, maybe I am... but it's all good.

Amidst the revelry, cardboard masks, soundtrack music, Avengers temporary tattoos, and drinking, we had ourselves the first ever Avengers themed quiz, and let me tell you... I thought I was a fanboy. I was wrong. You guys really brought it last night, and my geekiness paled in comparison to yours. I bow to the masters!

I think the reason The Avengers appeals to me so much, is it is not only a super hero team, but they are archetypes of another passion of mine... gaming! Each one fills a niche in a party of adventurers. Allow me to elaborate.

The Incredible Hulk = Warrior/Tank

Thor = Cleric

Black Widow = Rogue

Hawkeye = Ranger

Captain America = Paladin

Iron Man = Mage

That is why the team works so well together. They are perfectly balanced, just like the archetypical adventuring party from a tabletop or video game.

But anyway, enough of my ramblings! We had a great night, and I am very happy to have hosted it for you! See you guys soon!

Oh, and here's a picture of the winning team, Illuminaughyty, plus a photbomber, with their well-deserved booty! They are all now junior avengers!

And here's a picture of your regular quizmaster Desiree as Ms. America! LOL Love you Des!

Toodles!

ATTACK of the killer pollen! Last week I wrote about spring being in the air. This week I'm bitching about it because this is the time of year that tree pollen runs amok and kills me and half the populstion. For the who do not know, pollen is the male gamete for plants. I suggest a benadryl coma, they seem to work best for me.  Spring also brings some rainy weather or drizzly, hazy yuck like last night. I'm so glad you all made it out and got home safe! Enough about that though, how about quiz?

 

R1 made us realize how irked we can get. Sorry, it is not "Whisper While you Work" and there was non twerking this round!

R2 was all about 5's. My only regret is that "I got five on it" by Luniz did not make an appearance.

R3 was a chicken/egg type thing. Most of you were surprised that MDMA came before LSD. I guess because we associate LSD with 60's/70's Beatles era and MDMA as a newer club/rave thing. PS: It's Crips, not Crypts...

R4 showed me that you guys know your foreign movies! I was nervous about the reception for this round but y'all rocked it. Good job!

R5 gave us eyes! Lots of great movies in here too! A Clockwork Orange and Pan's Labyrinth are 2 of my all time favorites. I suggest seeing them if you haven't.

R6 Oh Supermarket Sweep! How I longed to run you aisles, rack up big bucks in the meat department, and carry an oversized Tony the Tiger Bonus Prize to your registers. What happened to the great gameshows of my childhood?

R7 was a slightly different kind of round than we're used to. A lot of y'all did well, some did not. I'm sorry Whiskeypedia about the whole internal/external rhyme conundrum!

R8 Throw in some severe weather, cartoon voices, DeLorean, volcanoes, and baseball punks and we have a game folks!

 

In the end, Happy Birthday to the Ground came out on top. They've been front runners the past few times, but finally managed to pull off a win. Good job guys! Ironically enough, we had a birthday in the house; Happy Birthday Andrew! Gotta love your regulars! I got the most delicious Irish Carbomb Cupcake from the birthday boy. I think he was feeling ALLLLLLright by the end of quiz Mwahahaha


Next week, AVENGERS! Come out, dress up, cash prize!


Thanks for coming out!

See y'all next Thursday :)
