So, we all have our little idiosyncarcies when we're drunk. I've known some people (who may or may not be quizmasters) who turn into completely different (and super fucking needy) people when they've had a few too many. I find that, when I'm drunk (which I am as I'm typoing AT LEAST this paragraph of the blog), I am a little bit more lewd, I lose my inhibitions and...oddly, I can't hear as well. This leads to a phenomenon known as "Derek will turn the fucking music at quiz up to inanely loud levels" and also "Derek will dance awkwardly to pretty much anything." Now, tonight the booze flowed like water and the dancing was copious because, predictably, the music was pretty goddamn loud. Forgive the spelling errors (that I may or may not be actively editing (I edited that sentence 8 times) because, as I said, I'm fucking blitzed. I'm currently rocking a queen song and typing this blog while my score whore scores round eight. WHY!? Because I'm an adult, goddammit, and I do what I want. And I just got my...5th or 6th cocktail delivered. WHO WON'T BE DRIVING HOME? This guy...
Wait, where were we? OH SHIT, quiz...
So, even though PSY came out with his masterpiece "Gangnam Style" in July, and the (fucking awesome) video for the song has garnered literally millions of hits on YouTube, SOME OF YOU were introduced to it's utter awesomeness for the first time at quiz on Thursday night. I must say that I'm super proud of all of you for requesting an encore AND for complying with the demand that there MUST be dancing if an encore was to happen. It does my heart good to see the whitest and awkwardest of geeks doing their best interpretation of the horse dance. Anyhow, as my alcohol-induced fog only grows thicker (I'[m ingesting a Knob Creek Manhattan faster than a jackrabbit on a date), I'll be hard pressed to make anby real sense, let alone do any fucking haiku...Well, maybhe we should jump right into the Haiku so I can...Hold up, it;s time to read ansewers....
where the hell am I right now?
what's with all the wind?
Hey, welcome to the next morning. Luckily, I'm genetically superior enough that I don't experience any sort of hangover following a night of heavy drinking (and yes, last night was one of the "I drank heavily" variety) so I can be lucid enough to finish this blog and actually offer some cogent and useful information. SO! We had quite the fervent battle for the top 3 slots last night which included (yet another) pretty epic danceoff, the remnants of which can be seen if you clicky right here. After all the quiz dust settled, and Firebreathing Seahorse owned the danceoff, Proper Villains found themselves in second and Kevin's Imaginary Friend were the champeens for the evening. As usual, big thanks to everyone who came out to show off their big brains. I had a shitload of fun to go along with my shitload of drinks, I hope you all did as well. And hey! We can have even MORE fun if (and when) you come on back NEXT Thursday. So...Come on back. Next Thursday. Right? Good.
