Oh, Cause Pussy Hat Sounds Like Pussy CAT. That's the Joke.

Helluva quiz last night, kiddos. Helluva quiz.   Chelsea has absconded with our dear friend Kavi, who is leaving us for Ithaca, NY, so today's blog will be brought to you by me. Happy road trip, ladies!    I'm currently re-watching Weeds. I don't know why, but I'm about 3 episodes into the

Blowing My Nose and Loving It
Chels

Hey gang! Thanks for sticking it out with me at quiz. I've been a little sick and just found out I have bronchitis, yay! No worries, I should be right as rain in a few days. I will be good to go this coming Wednesday.  So, we did indeed have a quiz! QM Kyrsti and her boy toy, Scott, came out to hang with us. They did terribly! Haha! But it's all about the fun for sure. I can't remember their team name, but I'm sure it was something awesome.  I'm glad you guys braved the SXSW traffic to hang with us. At least we're not in the middle of that shit. I sometimes go down there and fuck around, see what parties I can get into

Kangol is Very Fascinating
Chels

Hey gang! We had a another great time last night! Everything went super well. Which is always great. The weather was nice, and I ended up hanging out at Tramps on the patio for the rest of the night. It was a chill time for sure. After the craziness of being in Seattle for a week putting on Geek Bowl, it was good to get back in the flow of things.  Speaking of GB, it was AMAZING! We had 212 teams, an opening number, Ken Jennings showed up, Escort was our kick ass band, and we real fighters come and act out fight scenes from movies. It was our best GB yet! Be on the lookout for GB XII! It will be in Boston in 2018. After

Its You - You're the Rocketman
Patrique

Becca and I shared our love of The Rock - nope not Dwayne Johnson, the movie featuring Nic Cage, Sean Connery, a dynamite Ed Harris, John Spencer, the guy with the thin penis in Deuce Bigelow, David Morse, and Jim "JESUS" Caviezel as the Rear F-18 pilot from the infamous scene where the planes fly under the Golden Gate Bridge. Chills.   The wonderful and freshly hair-cut Becca let know that Nic Cage did he own car driving when they did the chase scene in San Francisco. You know the one, after Sean Connery throws Leo McGarry (RIP) off the roof, and the guy asks if he likes the haircut, then Connery steals a humvee and Cage follows in a

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

Justin Bieber is the Worst
Chels

That's right, I said it. Whenever I hear one of his songs, I really have no idea it's him. Then when I find out, I just think, no wonder it sucks.  Anywho! We had another freaking blast with everyone this week! I had some old quizzers stop by just to give me shit. Joke's on them! I'm in charge! My roommate, and fellow lesbro, Jonpaul, was in the house as well. We have a good time. His team name is very indicative of our good times, fo sho. Shorty! There was also a birthday in the house!

I Can't Believe It's Not Chelsea
Rebecca

Well believe it, kiddos. You're stuck with Becca for the remainder of this blog. Last night was a lot like any other night, where the sound refused to cooperate until about 10 after 8. Luckily, Tramp's staff is kick-ass and we got it settled--just in time for Chelsea and I to bring the house down with our funny banter and pretty faces. There were some awesome team names last night, with my personal favorite being Russian Discussions w/ Mike Flynn. He's a fucking asshole, (who works--erm--worked for fuckinger assholes) and I am glad Tramp's teams keep reminding us of that fact with their witty names. Keep it up, lovelies. You make my week brighter. Everybody

You Were Not Seeing Double
Chels

No, you definitely weren't. Badass servers, Kai and Kim, were totally wearing the exact same thing. I guess no one else got the Lululemon pants, crop top, denim jacket with sleeves cut off memo. They're the best! Now, thank you guys for being patient with us last night. There was a big party in the back, and once they were out, we were on! And we had a great time! Did you know that Tramps has Jell-O shots for $1.50? Because they do and they are delicious. I had 2? 3? No, yeah, just 2. You know me, 512 IPA all the way! That round 2 was a little hard for you guys. The high score was 10, and no one jokered that round. Good call! That round

My Dad Wishes He Didn't Know Me
Chels

Hahahaha! I think that's the best. My dad totally showed up to quiz this week! He was all sneaky about it too. One of his teammates told me before he got there. I was like what?!?! Why didn't you warn me? More importantly, why didn't my dad tell me? He loves catching me off guard. Jerk. Jk, he's the best, we have a good time. Also, I don't censor myself when he's around, so you got the same show. Which went awesome! Becca was killing it next to me, like she always does. We totally made a video of us rocking out to Ruby Soho, we have the best time. Then I embarrassed her by playing her band's first single. They are called Rebecca and the Morning After,

Ann Coulter Should Write for Slayer

Damn, that last question was awesome. Ann Coulter book or Slayer song. Hilarious.  We had another big crowd this week! Awesome! Thanks for coming out! Everyone is back from the holidays and traveling and back to real life. It's bitter sweet right? Hard to get back into the grind. But quiz is always fun and easy to get back into. Said it before and I'll say it again, quiz is my happy place. Quiz at Tramps is my happy place. I play all over town and I love it, all of our hosts are great, we all like to hang out a lot. There's just something about hosting, and about being at Tramps. I've been going to this bar since 2009, before quiz. We call it BQ. Times were different.  Anywho,

That Guy Got All My Jokes

It's always nice when someone gets your jokes. And Wednesday night, this guy was all over mine. He was sitting right in front of our table, so I got to hear every glorious chuckle. I was like, yeah, this guy knows what's up.  Also, 33 teams?!?! Nice! That was a welcomed surprise for sure! I love when we're busy, Becca kicks ass at scoring, and get to drink my beer. Took a couple of shots too. I have been a little stressed out with my Geeks day job. Maybe it's because I'm a workaholic. Nah, that can't be it, right? I mean, I'm not obsessed. I don't own 15 GWD tshirts, have a GWD wristband, have a GWD tattoo, a GWD koozie, 2 GWD bottle

Britney Spears Perfumes: A Trial pt 2
Patrique

Greetings, Trampers! One of the things I have been up to recently is checking into Britney Spears' line of perfumes. She makes a crapton of money off of these things so I figure it would be good to let y'all know what you're getting into should you buy one. Here are a couple that I sampled at the local Walton Supermarket. Britney Spears Curious for Women - This smells like what I assume baby beauty pageants smell like. Like, you know in that episode of Friends where Rachel and Phoebe take Emma to that baby beauty pageant and are late for Thanksgiving? Then Joey's head gets stuck in the door? Haha, Joey's eye were hilarious. "We're really, REALLY sorry". Oh man, I love Friends. Oh right

Ron Jeremy < Banana Slug

Yo! And yeah, because a banana slug's dangling participle is 8 inches long. Definitely has a career, if it wants it. Becca was back last night! I missed her. We always have the best damn time! I mean my subs are always great as well, but there's no replacing her. That's for DAMN SURE! We quizzed you on Recently in Stuff, I don't watch the news, I hate that show. My roommate/fellow QM/writer/corporate goon Jonpaul, graced us with his presence and some rounds. He wrote the Animals Are Gross, You Guys round, that was hilarious. We learned a lot about them.

I Know Guac is Extra, B!

Let's go over here and get stepped up, and get everybody stepped up.  That was Jonpaul's fave team name of the night. You could tell by the way he read it each time. With such emphasis. "I know guac is extra, bitch!" He loved every minute of it. He also HATES that Walk the Moon song. Which is funny, because a lot of us LOVE IT! I know it got over played, but I like the beat. You know me, I love to dance! I'm always jamming out when I'm hosting. It's one of the best parts. And his hatred didn't stop me from making a video with him it while it was on. He did not look amused. Whatever, I'm in charge! We had a great time at quiz! We made all

Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

One team always has to be that douche. Last night, as you can see if you look at the scores on the sidebar, the team that saw a douche cloak, went, “Hey, that looks like it fits!,” threw said cloak over their shoulders, and felt like they wanted to show off their new douche cloak to everyone, was the team that came in third place. I’m not going to write their name again. Usually, I’d give a wrap-up of the winners, putting their name in bold print and extolling their virtues. But, alas, even though third place had the smarts, grit, and determination to end up in third place and walk away with prize money, there’s that name. People of Mister Tramp’s, I applaud

So Long and Thanks For All the Bliss
Chels

Hiya hiya! So last week was a rough one with the passing of my friend. The memorial was this week and we watched her Jeopardy! episodes. She won at least 3 days in a row! We were all totally playing a Jeopardy! drinking game while we were watching, it was great. It was a great way to remember and honor a friend.  Now, I do have some other sad news. Our wonderful regular quizzer and friend, Gwen, is moving to Seattle. Becca and I went to Target and got her a bottle of KY, hand warmers, and a little bottle of prosecco, she needs all those things. So Wednesday was her last Texas quiz. It was a bittersweet night, but one she'll remember

Sunday night this week, a quizzer that has been playing quiz since about 2011, passed away. She was awesome and really fucking smart! She came to my Saturday quiz every week with her partner and friends. Their team name always had Jarvis in it, so we started calling her Lady Jarvis. It was perfect.
