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.

"Most plain girls are virtuous because of the scarcity of opportunity to be otherwise." ~Maya Angelou

So its been a few weeks since I've seen y'all. Its great to be back. In case you didn't know, I have started taking classes again. For my class I had to do a TAT test which is where you pick an image then write a short story about it. I did not know it was supposed to be a quick 2 paragraph story so I wrote a monstrosity! Here it is for your reading pleasure. 

 

Gloria and Gideon
“Gloria I presume?” said the woman in the plainly sophisticated outfit with the plain and sophisticated air about her.“Yes, I’m Gloria. Are you Gideon?” Clara replied as she slid the envelope across the table.“Here’s your case ma’am. Thank you for all you‘ve done” “No, thank you!”

Three months earlier
Clara was a simple woman. She lived the ordinary life of a single mother, lived in a typical suburban neighborhood, and worked for a local company in Human Resources. She was the epitome of  normal until one night a horrific event shook her world and set in motion the events of the next few months. 
Clara’s son Ethan was a Junior at West Brook High, a football player, and an all around good kid. He got into minimal trouble over the years, but of course from time to time, boys will be boys. After football games, Ethan would usually go with his teammates to the local pizza shop then out to some kids party. He never admitted it, the boys would always say they were staying at a friend’s house, but we’ve all been young once and Clara was no fool. She just made sure to tell him to be careful, don’t drink and drive, and the typical “mom” speech about make good choices. 
The call came about midnight:“Hello, is this Mrs. Oswald?”“….yes”“This is Doctor Briggs with the West Brook Hospital. There’s been an incident and your son Ethan is here. We believe he is going to be okay but could you please come up here to the ER?”“…” Clara was speechless. Every mother’s worst fear was coming to life. It wasn’t until she was about to reply that she realized the tears were already streaming down her face. “Yes, I’ll be right there.”
The five minute drive felt like five hours. She had to continuously tell herself “he’s okay, the doctor said he’s okay.” She pulled into the parking, dashed into the ER, after talking with the woman at the desk, walked as fast as she could down the corridor to the room with her son, her baby, her Ethan. She walked in and immediately burst into tears again at the sight. Ethan was there on the bed, bloody, battered, and bruised. Ethan’s best friend Mike was in a chair and the doctor was at his bedside.“You’re the mother I presume?”“Yes.”“I’m Dr. Briggs. I made the call. Ethan is lucky his friend was there to get him to us so quickly.  Apparently Ethan was attacked by a group of men.”Then Mike chimed in, ”He was leaving the pizza shop, headed to his car, when 3 guys jumped out of the ally. They just started hitting him and that’s when one pulled out the tire iron. I heard him wailing from inside so I ran out. I saw them take off in his car and run over his leg! It was awful Mrs. O!”Dr. Briggs continued, “We are about to take him into surgery to repair the leg. He should be fine but very sore and in a cast for a while.”
Two Months later
Ethan was finally home. He was able to walk with crutches but they had to completely reconstruct his leg bones. He was very close to losing it because the bones had been shattered. This joyous event was cut short though when the bills started to arrive. Clara had insurance but it was very minimal and nowhere began to cover all the hospital costs. She had no clue how to pay these bills. Then, almost like a beacon, as she was browsing through some online classifieds for a second job, she saw it.
Need some extra money?Have Tenacity?281-555-1234
That was it. It intrigued her so much, she jotted down the number. She was tenacious, right? She was definitely determined to do almost anything to keep from going bankrupt. Finally that night around 10, she decided call. That way no one would be at the office or whatever it was to answer. She could listen to the voicemail, try to get a better idea of what it was, and then leave a message. The only problem was when she dialed, it barely rang once and was followed by a quick “Hello”.“Umm, hello. My name is Clara. I saw your online add…”“Ahh, fabulous!,” said a man with a thick Russian accent. “So what exactly are you looking for?”“Do you have a skype account? I would like to chat with you there.”Clara had nothing to lose so she gave him her account name and was quickly called on her laptop by RusTx555. She answered to see the silhouette of a thin man in a dark room. Clara thought this seemed like something out of a bad movie.“I’m going to be straight forward with you. I am working for a wealthy man and I do not trust private detectives. I know this must all seem very surreal to you but I need answers.”“Okay, what do you need?” “I believe my client’s wife is up to something but I do not know what. I like you and the fact that you are still talking with me tells me that you are the woman for this job. I would like you to follow her, take pictures, find out whatever you can, report back to me. If you can solve this problem for me and provide proof, I will pay you $50,000.”Clara couldn’t believe her ears. It seemed too simple. There had to be something he wasn’t telling her. “Okay, so what’s the catch Mr. … Mr. I don’t even know your name?”“Just call me Gideon and I shall call you Gloria.”“Okay Gideon, what’s the catch?”“As I told you before, my client is a wealthy man. His wife has a bodyguard at all times. Not only will you have to follow her, but you cannot be suspected by her guard. You can tell NOBODY about this or what you discover. It will all come out in the end, but it needs to be in the right way. Will you do it?”“Okay, I’ll do it”Gideon then gave her an email address and password for her to log onto to get all the details on the woman she would be trailing. It was all so crazy and exciting at the same time. The woman’s name was Mona. She was a beautiful socialite and the wife of a very influential man of the community. Clara almost felt honored to be entrusted with this “mission”. The files included information from what she guessed was Mona’s personal schedule. This seemed like an easy fifty grand.
Clara had some vacation time accumulated, so she decided to take the next two weeks off and put her entire effort into this. She started by eating at a café where Mona had a luncheon scheduled. When Mona walked in, Clara’s heart began fluttering and she knew that the money was as good as hers. The next few days she would watch from far away at different locales, each day being very diligent to change up her looks and clothing so as not to draw attention to herself and the fact that she kept popping up wherever Mona was.  
Finally after watching her with no new information, Clara decided to follow her.  On Thursday, Mona was scheduled for yoga in the park. Clara sat at bench by the lake “reading a book” about 300 yards from the class. When the class was over Mona began walking her way. Clara was scared at first that she had been found out, but Mona was just heading to the back parking lot. Clara trailed at a distance and saw her get into a red Audi with a male driver. Clara jotted down the cars info and license plate. 
When Clara got home, she noticed every Tuesday and Thursday Mona had yoga. She decided to take the weekend off her secret undercover life then do some more reading by the lake on Tuesday. The same thing happened; Mona was dropped off in her car, did yoga, then left in the red Audi. Clara knew this was her big break. Thursday, she didn’t read. She waited in her car for yoga to end then followed the red Audi. They drove fifteen minutes to a little motel that Clara didn’t even know existed. She had lived in the area her whole life and never knew it was there. This must be why Mona chose it. 
***
“Well Mr. Gideon, this ends just like it started. Just like a bad movie, I discovered that Mona is in fact running around on her husband. At least twice a week, she goes to yoga in the park, leaves with a man in a red Audi, goes to a motel, 30 minutes later her returns her to the park where her bodyguard chauffeur picks her up. I have pictures to prove it. How would you like to do this exchange?”
“Straight to the point. I like it. Tomorrow, go the café at the corner of 3rd and Main. One of my employees will meet you there. She will call you Gloria and you must address her as Gideon. Put a copy of all the pictures in a large manila envelope, hand it to her, and she‘ll give you the money.”

Two Days Later
Clara and Ethan sat in the living room, eating the pizza that had just arrived, watching the evening news. The reporter came on, “Scandal rocks the small suburban community of West Brook. Society bigwig Mikhail Markova has filed for divorce. It seems that his wife has been having an affair with another community socialite Mitchell Burnham.”“Hmm, that must be the owner of the Audi,” thought Clara.“This multi-million dollar divorce will shake the community as both parties are big supporters of many local events and charities.”Clara smiled and was about to change the channel when the plain, sophisticated woman came on to the screen.“All I can say at this time is that I’m glad the truth came out. My father does not deserve this.” She then held up a voice box that made her sound like a male and in a thick Russian accent she said, “Thank you Gloria.”

 

Meanwhile in quiz, we had NATO alphabet, smooth jazz, color teams, Caesar's ghost, Bootube, Koch Monsters, fluid sexuality, and some random knowledge. The Soft High Fives were unstoppable all night. I credit this to them being the only team to rock round 2. No one else even got double digits on that round. 

 

Thanks for coming out!

See y'all next Thursday :)

Yes yes, I got the iPhone 6. Who wants to touch me? Sorry, I had to gloat a little because I am never one of the first to get the new techy things. So far the coolest feature that I've used so far is the slo-mo camera. Its pretty cool. When you get yours, have some dude lift his shirt and smack his tummy repeatedly. It looks funny on the slo mo!

In quiz tonight, we had a Duh! round, awful parodies, 50/50 on deliciousness, microbrew locales, movie regrets, real life villians, and PBS. Throw in some friends, camps, and clavivles for Random Knowledge and we have a game folks!

In the end, Awkward Turtles won it all to no one's surprise. The rocked the standings all night long. And congrats to Peterson's School of Discipli9ne for their first placing ever in 2nd! Go ahead and mark yor calendars for October 25 - Ghostbusters Quiz!!!

Thanks for coming out!

Okay, so I'm taking a psychology course this semester and I wanted to bring to light a study about a baby called Little Albert. If you've never heard of it before, go to youtube, there's a video. This poor baby is conditioned to be scared of rats and other small furry things. The worst thing is they say "See, he's even scared of this bunny mask now" Only thing is, that mask would scare anyone. Its one of those creepy old ones. Its the stuff nightmares are made of. I just had to give a shout out to poor little Albert.
Also, last night for the second time ever in 7 years, someone who had just met me guessed what subject I teach. Its my favorite bar bet ever. I tell them I'm a middle school (7th/8th grade) teacher and its a subject you wouldn't expect me to teach. I give them 3 guesses. If they get it right, I'll buy them a shot; they don't, they buy me a shot. Like I said, I've been doing this for 7 years now since I've been in this position and only one other person has gotten it correct. Kudos to you Mr. Nick!
So in quiz we had rounds on pirate talk, word crimes, SNL hopefuls, pizza fixin's, Kroll Show takeover, SyFy, and Robotics. Throw in some MASH, Kutcher, Frenchy stuff, and hubs for Random Knowledge, and we have a game folks!  
Hope you had fun and avoided the rain on the way home.

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