When life gets you down, QUIZ!

Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! Well, my Thursday started off wretched, like, nearly in tears, as I learned of the passing of Chris Cornell, right here in our state, near miles from us. Horrible. I spent the day listening to his music, listening to people talk about him & his music, and wallowing. But, I didn’t want to bring that energy to the quiz. So, I put 3 of his songs- one Soundgarden, one Audioslave, one solo- on my playlist. But I went home after work, played with my dogs for a little bit, and cleared my head. And good thing I did, because the bar was packed, much to my delight! Distraction welcome! I’m still sad, but I carry on.

I forgot to tell you guys that I was going to be at PotterCon - Detroit this Sunday! I will be cosplaying as Professor McGonagall and also will be accepting anyone who wants to join my team for the trivia. I have been studying, and will continue to study this weekend. I’m going to find as many online HP trivias as I can! I feel like, as a Quizmaster, I better do well! I stand up in front of people a few times a week & assault them with questions, so I better be able to rep, right!? Well, I’ll be looking for anyone I know, so look for me! I’m also planning on going to the before/after party at Batch Brewing Company. I will for sure be there before, maybe after. I hope to see you there!

This week, most of you soared right though the rounds, putting up several perfect or near-perfect rounds. Then, we got to round 6, and the shit hit the fan. But, as I said, since everyone had lower scores, all it did was make it graded on a curve. So, no big deal in the end. I think the thing to take away from this is that we all got to listen to Mr. T sing, and it was hilarious!

Well, $mells Like Mead Spirit$ seemed like they had first place on lockdown, but Spikey saved their joker for round 8 and they ended up in a tie. After the tie breaker, Spikey was awarded the first place prize and the second place prize went to $mells Like Mead Spirit$. Nutter Butter also went home with a prize. The rest of you get my undying affection. Value that how you like.

Thank you all for coming out! Thank you to the always amazing bar staff! Until next time, quiz fans!

Hello, hello, hello! I'm Miranda & LOVE Harry Potter. I also love Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, Neko Atsume, Supernatural, and many other fandoms, but that would be a long list! My favorite movie is The Big Lebowski. I have a husband named Joe and 2 dogs named Penny & Picard. I like relaxing with them when I'm not at my day job or yelling out questions to a bar full of people.
