I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels <insert your Monty Python "Holy Grail" joke here>.

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our six chickens, five ducks, four cats, two dogs, a lizard, and a turkey.

So, the woman who wants me dead showed up tonight, just before I left for Quiz, asking if her boyfriend and she could move in for a couple weeks. 

Yes.

Why does she want me dead? Because she believes that, had I never entered my husband's life, she would still live in our house, contributing not one damn bit to it, hoarding things in every spare room, never cleaning up after herself, stealing medications, changing from catatonic to violent on a dime, and - oh, yeah - threatening my cats' lives.

Yes, she is my estranged sister-in-law. 

I thought the last I'd seen of her was 2006.

It's truly a long story. You have no idea what kind of nightmare living with her was. He'd had enough of living with her by the time I entered the picture. I mean, we had to hide our guns because she had the key to their locked cabinet. We almost hid our knives. Once she was moved out, we changed all the locks. Jean blocked her from his phone. 

Seeing her tonight put me in a right state. Never before was I so happy I had dishes and recyclables to wash. I just stood there at the sink, listening and not-listening to her talk to Jean. After he denied her request one, final time, and closed the door, Jean asked me for a hug. 

Oh, dear Lord, I'm in a tizzy. 

I think we both saw a ghost.

Boo Radley Strikes Back kept their lead for the entire night, and took away a $20 gift certificate back here to Playground. To Inifnity and Beyonce kept their second place standing to take home $10. No one knew the email bonus answer, so no one got to take home official GWD swag. D'oh! Playground kept you guys boozed and fed. I hope you showed them monetary love, in return. Kata-Mari will return to you next week. Thanks so much for welcoming again to your home.

Awa!

I was born & raised in San Diego, California, I left for a few years to attend and graduate from the University of Arizona. Bear down! I used to spend my days teaching Tucson's youth--the future of America (get out while you can--seriously.) So, now I'm embarking to medical school. In my spare time, I enjoy geeking out at quiz or hanging with friends!

I love animals, science, books....and quizzing! There's more to know...but really, who cares?

Keep Calm & Geek On!

First off, a HUGE thank you to quizzers who put up with all the crap that happened tonight!! You guys are such great sports! Despite my mic giving out once or twice, the computer audio being all funky and frustrating, quizzers just totally let it ride.  We had a great quiz, too!

  • Round 1 discussed Obama’s absenteeism during protests throughout history. I’m pretty sure he was busy during the storming of the Bastille. Besides, the French don’t need our help.
  • Round 2 was all about body parts. I studied anatomy over the summer but never really learned why the hips don’t lie. Everyone loved the songs about body parts. Big Balls by AC/DC was a huge hit. Just remember, size doesn’t matter.
  • Basketball jersey’s dominated round 3, where teams had to guess the most popular jersey’s that have been purchased during the first half of the season. I don’t know anything about the NBA besides that’s it’s basketball and there are tall dudes playing it. But teams guessed that people like Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LeBron James have pretty popular sleeveless shirts. Good job dude bros.
  • Technicolor reminds me of the Wizard of Oz for some reason, but round 4 was all about movies with names that contained colors. *cues the song  “De Colores” * Black Hawk Down was about Somalia and started my love of Josh Hartnett…where is he now?! “Reds” was about the Bolsheviks (of course) and John Williams DID NOT score “The Color Purple”. See? Colors. Good thing we didn’t even mention blue balls.
  •  The visual round tested team’s abilities to name the show based on a still from it’s unaired pilot. Simpson’s was an easy guess, but teams had trouble with Desperate Housewives. Of course they did. It’s a terrible show. I much prefer Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Trek.
  • Round six covered some guy names Ivan Drago, who I kept accidentally referring to as “Ivan DROGO.” My sun and stars. Anyway, yeah, we talked about him. All I know is that Chubbs Peterson is still the best portrayal in Happy Gilmore.
  •  I LOVED round 7 tonight. I almost decided to get a glass of whisky in honor of Ron Swanson, who (well, the fake version) took us around to different countries and described their government. Teams had to guess which country he was talking about. Of course, he discussed Canada (who the hell messes up bacon!?), Japan (the National Diet?), Morocco and Israel. Just thinking of his quivering mustache just makes me smile. Remember, never half ass two things. Whole ass one thing.
  • The knowledge was random in round 8. Teams answered questions about butlers, Italians, continents with Starbucks stores, and the father of genetics, Gregor Mendel! Did you know that an ostrich’s egg is the largest gamete known to man? Yeah, when you eat eggs people, you are eating sex cells. Yum!

Teams had so much fun tonight, despite our issues. I wish I could’ve awarded them all prizes! Maybe I’ll make cookies next week. Anyway, no one answered our email bonus question, so we’ll have another chance next week! Though the battle between The Straights & The Gays was a tough one, neither team won top marks. When the dust settled, Glitter Bomb Squad snagged second place and the $10 gift card prize for the second week and This Is the Only Sport We’re Good At, was true to their name when they won first place and a $20 gift card to Playground! Congrats both teams! After quiz was over, Playground staff and I watched Guardians of the Galaxy, which was a perfect end to my night!

Remember, the Friend’s  themed quiz is on January 29th and please answer my plea to send a Tucson team to Geek Bowl 9 in Albuquerque! I’ll be there...and you guys better be , too!! See you guys next week!
