Well, that had the potential to turn into a seriously awkward evening. For those of you who weren't in attendance (not judging) I decided to completely abuse my power as quizmaster for the advancement of my personal agenda; kind of like Romney running for president. The main difference being that my intentions were noble and just and I wasn't trying to screw up millions of lives, just one specific life.
Some of you may have run across my girlfriend, Jenny, at one time or another during your adventures in quiz at British Bulldog. There have been times she's acted as scorekeeper and other times that she's teamed up with others as a participant. She doesn't make it every week, but this was a week where her presence was of paramount importance to the success of quiz. You see, we've been dating for 2.9945 years now and lately I've gotten the feeling like she was waiting for me to move things along. What she didn't know, was that a couple months back, quizmistress extraordinaire JTown and I had developed a nefarious scheme that would use a mystery round to pop the question.
Layers upon layers of subterfuge were employed in an effort to lower her suspicions. Tough questions had to be anticipated:
Luckily, with many thanks to everyone in on the secret and on hand for last night's quiz, I was able to see the plan through to its completion and have her none the wiser until the very end. It was a fitting way to handle the occasion, as during our entire 2.9945 years of courtship, I don't think a calendar week has gone by where we haven't attended at least one night of quiz; oftentimes 2 or 3 nights if she was agreeable to my requests. A special thanks to the Geeks Who Drink higher-ups who gave their blessing for me to commandeer my quiz for my own personal agenda.
Speaking of quiz, we had one! Racing out to early leads via well placed round 2 jokers, The Team to My Right and Stuck With the Other One were neck and neck until the very end. Lurking behind them in the standings were both The Fuckest Uppest and Girl, You'll Be a (Mormon) Wolfman Soon. In the end, the lycanthropic threats were too much to hold off and Wolfman edged out Stuck With the Other One for first place. The Fuckest Uppest slipped into third place, thanks in no small part to The Team on My Right losing 40% of their brainpower midway through the quiz.
I can't thank everyone enough for allowing me to force you into my personal life for ever so brief a moment. Things should be back to normal next week as I don't see a need to propose again, as she said yes the first time around. See you all at 8pm next Monday.
