Don't Forget! No Quiz Next Saturday!
hurls

Alright, wise-asses! I announced our canceled 4th of July quiz last night so many times that many of you thought it was so hilarious to call out, "See you next week!", so I hope you guys really do remember and don't show up to Marina looking for me and QM Julia next Saturday, because we won't be there! I'll be in NYC and Julia will be somewhere on the lake. Both of us will be celebrating, missing each other, and missing you!    Last night was really awesome! With 34 teams, we quizzed about all sorts of things - namely Boy Bands, followed by a Backstreet

This Quiz Brought to You by the Bear and the Bee
AB Baby

Hello, Marina!I know I've worked the quiz for y'all before, as a scorekeeper for Evelyn and as a proctor for big events like our Rumble in the Pub competition! But this week was the first time I sat in the driver's seat, which was seriously cool considering that, as I mentioned at quiz, I started playing Geeks Who Drink at Opal's Marina. This was MY weekly spot!If you're a regular too, you already know many of the reasons Marina is awesome. But just for good measure, let's talk about some of the most memorable parts of quiz last night:1) Sweetest staff ever! So I know our company name suggests otherwise, but I'm in the middle of a few week dry out and had decided not to drink.

Anna dyes her hair blonde because she wants to be Leslie Knope. Her hobbies include arguing with the tv and radio - especially when political discussions come on, cleaning her apartment to the sounds of old school country music records, and writing letters to television networks to try and get Freaks and Geeks back on the air. Hey, it worked for Family Guy!

She believes fluoride is poisoning us all, Lee Harvey Oswald could never have made that shot, and Blink-182 is due for a reunion.

Help! Anna and I Are A Mess!
hurls

Oh boy. Everything was going just swell, until I saw QM Anna's arms radiating from across the parking lot. She had been in the sun ALL day wearing little more than a loin cloth for the Game of Thrones quiz. She was really, really, burnt. We doubled up on the delicious pineapple juice from Opal's and forged ahead.    Anna was a total trooper though, she threw on a light cardigan and dove right into her Scorekeeper duties. I barely had to life a finger and she never complained. I've got that milky white skin too, and I know that burns are no fun. I think I was meant to live in a much less sunny climate.    When

Yes, This Is Veronica! No, She Does Not Want Your Phone Number.

With QM Julia out for a few weeks (1 down, 2 to go!), we will see a few new faces around the QM Table until she gets back. This week we had QM Veronica on deck, and some of you fellas really enjoyed her! While I was taking pictures, one team even asked me to go score so Veronica could take their team picture. Um, no. First, she's busy. Second, she's not interested. And Third, STFU and smile so I can snap your picture and get on my way.    We had a fantastic time with all of you, even through all the copious amounts of drool flowing from your mouth holes. We started off with a round on Horror

Karen! Your Dog Is Smoking A Cigar!
hurls

Man, Saturday's quiz was the perfect end to an insanely hectic and perfect week!    QM Julia and I met up with you and quizzed you on all sorts of things - starting with a round on Shared Adjectives, where we were faced with deciding if "puppy" is an adjective. Now, it wasn't the correct answer, but still, I always thought "puppy" is a noun, where QM Julia argued that in "puppy love", puppy operates as the adjective. I dunno, Julia. I don't think I buy it.   Speaking of puppies, Karen's dog came along for the first time and everyone walking by commented that it looks

Noah's Arc Presents: The Wedding of Evelyn

Evelyn got married today,  Well, not today. It was a while ago. Evelyn had wedding barbeque today! I had these stuffed jalapeno things wrapped with bacon that made Rachel cry because they were too spicy.  Homemade chocolate chip cookies.  And all the beer.  Seriously, I got yelled at by Evelyn for not drinking enough at the wedding.  Fine.  I’ll have more

A Lil' Something For Everyone!

Saturday at the Marina was fantastic!   I had just finished swimming some laps, so I smelled like chlorine and my hair looked a little more frizzy than normal. Turns out SK Julia had also been participating in water sports right before quiz too! We got all caught up after spending last weekend apart, and had a great time!   Blow It Up Across Town sat right up front, and Mr. Definitely was just inside their window. Jarvis and Gwent & Dammit Phil were nowhere to be found. Alice & Friends came

I Get By With A Little Help From Mateo and Kim!

Whew! Now, I always love it when other Quizmasters come to my quiz. And when QM Mateo stops by, it's always a welcome treat! So on Saturday, we had Scorekeeper Kim helping out while QM Julia had the night off. When Kim comes to work with me, it's always a big treat!  Well, we ran into some high-level scoresheet issues just as Round 7 was wrapping up, and Super Scorer Kim had to re-enter all of the scores from the entire night, while I got into Round 8 questions with all of you. It wasn't long before I knew we'd need help. I ran inside and asked QM Mateo

Take This, Mental Illness!
hurls

We had a fantastic night for our Quiz for a Cause! Teaming up with RT SideQuest, we raised almost $200 to benefit Take This!, which aims to bring awareness to the gaming community about mental illness. It was a fantastic arrangement, because QM Julia brought along her husband Grady, who is the force behind RT SideQuest! It made my job pretty simple, I just had to relay whatever info I was given to you guys. Grady is well-versed in the GWD format, so he was able to help Julia and I out in every way!

If Bruce Jenner Ends Up Prettier Than Me, Then I Give Up.

Well, well, well! It was so awesome to see all of you at our quiz on Saturday, and we had QM Anna filling the huge gaping void that QM Julia left in my heart. Since I hadn't talked to QM Anna in so long, and I had just gotten back from a whirlwind vacation, I kept over-talking to QM Anna and ended up mismanaging my time a little.  Still, with Anna's speedy scoring and quick thinking, we were reading all the scores just 5 minutes past midnight. Awesome. And then Anna whispered the news that we had a THREE-WAY TIE for 1st place. Oh, geez. Ok,

Hey there, quizzers! Evelyn was out of town tonight (somewhere in Colorado), so I was lucky to be Quizmastering while the amazing Kim Scorekept! We had an awesome time, even though I accidentally spilled Kim's beer at one point.I got set up kind of late tonight. Even though I arrived about an hour before quiz, I didn't get to START setting up until past 9:30 because there were some people at my table. In particular, there was this one drunk lady who was CONVINCED that the restaurant had lost her credit card. She swore she had searched her wallet and purse and hadn't gotten her card back after giving it to her server. Her server kept trying to tell her that she had never put

We had an INSANE night!  With 41 teams, we had a ton of brand-new players, and before the quiz even got started, we were overcome by frantic questions at our QM Table. See, I explained that everyone should come grab a visual round, and that you are naming the movie with the number 13 in the title.  So I had 2 different teams bring up answer sheets a few minutes letter that were filled with random movies that have 13 in the title. One guy just wrote "Friday the 13th 1, Friday the 13th 2, Friday the 13th 3....", while someone else had just listed every movie they could think of with 13 in the title.  When I mentioned the pictures,

BoneThugs 'n' Harmony is not Alternative Rock Either
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!I was so excited to be subbing for Evelyn tonight! She was at the wedding of an old friend and so I took over as QM--which means I got to hang out with Anna while she scorekept for me! Even though tomorrow's Easter, we still had 24 teams come out. Thanks for that!We had some remarkably difficult rounds tonight. Round 2 was our 16 point music round, but the average score was only a 6.75! And Round 3 (a speed round on Alternative Rock Album Grammy winners) went even more poorly--the average score was a 1.17 out of 8. That is really terrible. It probably would have been easier for you if you had known, like, ANY alternative rock bands. Metallica and

The Civic's Batteries Are Now Dead. Thanks for nothin'.

Wow, last night was awesome! We had 26 teams playing along, and lots of excitement, and a few of you had a little too much to drink! It was a blast.  I left my glasses at home, so QM Julia got on the mic for a rare reading of the scores and standings. When she read the team name A Civic In The Parking Lot Has Its Lights On, I saw a lot of you stand up and crane your necks in the direction of the parking lot, searching for this Civic. And even during the next scoring break, you did the same. So, I gotta explain something here. That team name was written and turned in no later than 10:10pm. QM Julia read

Oh man. QM Julia was back at my side last night, and we had a fantastic time! She had to skip last week's quiz, so it was extra special to see her smiling face and we got to joke around and get all caught up with each other. We had a LOT of brand-new teams, lots of confusion, and lots of misplaced jokers. We had a round all about Anatomy and lots of Chemistry questions, which always gets Julia riled up. As a high school chemistry teacher, Julia gets discouraged when you don't know that lithium was not named after Lithuania.  We had some discussion with a quizzer about one of our Anatomy questions
