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.

I don't know what is wrong with Tucsonans and the rain. It's not like we live in the Sahara or anything. We have a monsoon season and winter storms. Yet, every time it rains, people freak out. 

On my drive home, I got to witness a four-plus car sandwich form. Unfortunately, there was nowhere for me to pull over. I had to drive by as car after car rammed into the other. Because tailgaiting's the BEST idea - especially in the rain.

I'm guessing the summer sun melts your brains so much you can't think when anything else happens. Do brains melt at 112?

Here's your quick round-up of Quiz.

Round 1 - When I think, "Quiz," I think, "breakfast food". You averaged 5, and all knew donuts and Apple. Best Wrong Answer: the British gave us "ciao".

Round 2 - Heh heh. Organ. You averaged 13, and all knew Guns n' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine" and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven". Best Wrong Answer: U2 for Coldplay.

Round 3 - Real "Sharper Image" crap, or not? You averaged 5, and all knew The Sharper Image is responsible for giving us a heated shaving cream dispenser and a ballpoint pen with HD video recording capabilities (for all you perverts). Hey, I still have a gift certificate from them before their bankruptcy a few years back. Do you think I can still use it? Best Wrong Answer: you believed people have actually made heated underwear?!

Round 4 - Name the non-D&D monster. You averaged 4, and all knew the chupacabra. Best Wrong Answer: Billy Crystal controls Cyclops.

Round 5 - Ready for a wee game? You averaged 4 (better than I thought you would), and all knew Bart Simpson and Microsoft

Round 6 - All about Princeton alums! You averaged 3, and all knew Doogie Howser and Woodrow Wilson. Best Wrong Answer: Lois Lane slept with Dean Cain in a completely different universe.

Round 7 - Name that feisty, old lady. You averaged 6, and all knew "Arrested Development" and "The Golden Girls". Best Wrong Answer: "Star Trek" (which one?) for "Game of Thrones".

Round 8 - Random! You averaged 9, and all knew Cribbage. Best Wrong Answer: "Fuck Face" for President Bill Clinton.

If We Lose, North Korea Will Hack You kept it up (nudge, nudge, know what I mean? Know what I mean?) for the whole two hours and walked away with $20 in gift certificates right back to Playground. Help!!! brought up the rear to take away the second place winnings of $10. Nobody knew the email bonus question's answer. Thank you, Playground, for hosting us. Kata-Mari will return in the new year.

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.

These last two days were filled with moments of, "HUNH?!" I don't know if some planet's in retrograde or what. But, here are the three highlights I'd like to give you:

1. A now-former colleague wanted to opt out of receiving official emails because they, "weren't relevant" to her . . . and because she hated the fonts used. She decided to quit entirely, instead of put up with once-a-month emails.

2. A random-ass person emailed me and my bosses on how we could possibly have a certain, nasty book in our collection. The kickers? This book ("The Romance of Lust"), and the database (Project Gutenberg) in which it is found, are not even listed in our catalog - a catalog that no one outside of the school district can access, anyway.   

3. A friend of mine received what would have been a regular rejection letter for employment . . . except for the subject line of, "Not the news you were looking for."

The only take-away I have is that email is evil and/or brings out the stupid in people. 

As they say: "I can't even."

Here's your quick round-up of Quiz.

Round 1 - Being positive about recent events. You actually pay attention to the news. You ACED this round and left me nothing to poke fun at. 

Round 2 - A Capital Idea! You averaged 15 and knew my favourite song of the bunch, "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver. Again, you left me nothing to riff on. Come on, people! 

Round 3 - Name that hack! You averaged 7, and all knew Tom Clancy and Dan Brown. Best Wrong Answer: Billy Graham lost his religion and gave us (Nora Roberts') "Conspiracy in Death".

Round 4 - T-shirts on screen. You averaged 6, and all knew "Bad Santa" and "That 70s Show". Best Wrong Answer: wicket, as opposed to a regular, old cricket bat. A wicket is what you want to hit with your ball.

Round 5 - Don't be a Scrooge! You averaged 6 and all knew Kelsey Grammer and Michael Caine. Best Wrong Answer: "Lady Busty in Drag" (I look like Albert Finney?!)

Round 6 - Non-auto transportation. You averaged 3, but all knew The Darjeeling Limited. Best Wrong Answer: Taiwan gave us the very German-sounding Schwinn.

Round 7 - My favourite round of the evening, and why you had to listen to Brit-Pop during the scoring breaks: British telly! You averaged 6, and all knew "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (I would have had to unfriend you for that) and "Sherlock". Best Wrong Answer: "British Laugh-In" for "Are You Being Served?" Watch old re-runs of AYBS. It's very dated, but Mrs. Slocombe talks constantly about her pussy. Oo-er!

Round 8 - Random! You averaged a dismal 5, and all knew "Baby Got Back". Best Wrong Answer: "Friends" had an evil, evil science corporation in it.

After being neck-and-neck through the first scoring break, you guys finally separated yourselves as wheat and chaff. Stern Polish Tank Commanders gained the lead and kept it, to walk away with a $20 gift certificate to Playground. Positate the Negative! went home with second and $10. Scoobs won the email bonus question and won himself a graphic novel! Thank you, Playground, for hosting us, and taking me as your substitute QM. Kata-Mari will return next week.

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!

There wasn’t enough nerdity in our quiz tonight, so I decided that instead I would discuss MY nerdy hobbies. Because I can, that’s why. Recently, I was turned onto a new nerdy game called HeroClix, which is like a crazy nerdy version of chess, but with every superhero and movie/book character you can imagine. Or as one friend called it, "Heroclix is a game where the Red Eyes Black Dragon and General Zod can have an all out brawl in Bilbo's house." It’s super fun...and there’s miniatures! Anyway, I bring this up because I really enjoyed learning how to play and being involved with all the characters that I enjoy. I’m a n00b, so I imagined I’d be awful at it, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly, and ended up being my rather good opponent (who happens to be the guy I’m dating). Booyah! However, now I’m kind of hooked. I can’t wait to make a team that is lead by Deadpool, Deathstroke, She Hulk and Storm or some other version of a flyer.  And Groot and Rocket Raccoon. It would be like a nerdy dream come true.

Furthermore, In case you didn’t know, I, KataMari, have an unhealthy attraction to mercenaries: Mandalorians (of the Fett variety), Bucky Barnes (aka Winter Solider), Predator, Crossbones, Deadshot, and of course the Wilsons: Deadpool and Deathstroke. Now, I don’t know how or why it started, but it did. And none give me more pleasure than Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson) and Deathstroke (aka Slade Wilson). Deadpool is from the Marvel Universe (and is superior in nearly every way) while Deathstroke is a character in the DC universe. I’m told I have to start watching the tv show Arrow because it is full of Deathstroke. It’s on my list, I promise. But Deathstroke will never attain my full attention, as I will always love Wade more than Slade. Besides Marvel being better than DC, Deadpool is just so much fun-- I mean, come on…he has yellow and white boxes to keep him company! Speaking of company, let’s discuss the company at quiz tonight. I tend to get off topic. Sorry.

So, when birthday parties turn into battle style quiz teams, usually it’s a wonderful thing. However, last night, it turned into something from my teacher nightmare--loud, ruckus and refusing to put away their goram cell phones. But, you break the rules...you pay the consequences. And endure my wrathful gaze of professional hatred. Maybe. Anyway, we still had a great night and the four teams gave great effort. We even had a regular team come out from another venue just to support us! How sweet. And I love seeing the same team show up every week….love getting regular quizzers!! First place and the $20 gift certificate went to “What the Fuck? This isn’t Trident!”, who were wildly excited with their commanding lead. “However You Spell ‘Menage a trois’ “ snagged second place and shared their $10 gift card. I was proud of my teams and I really getting to love my bar staff at Playground. The awesome security sentinel, Angel, even walked me to my car to ensure my safety. I felt like a rock star.

Hopefully you guys had fun, too! Bring your friends and the family members you can stand and we’ll see you next Wednesday at 7:30pm!
