A Lil' Something For Everyone!
hurls

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!
hurls

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! We got started off with a Duh!

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

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,

I'm so glad all of you were nicer than that one lady, is basically what I'm saying
Specific Heat

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

QM'd in Houston for a bit, relocated to Austin, and have been PARTYING LIKE CRAZY here in ATX for almost two years. And by partying, I mean quizmastering. Because I'm way too lame to actually party.


But seriously I'm an awesome Quizmaster.

Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the anal beads herself.
hurls

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'.
hurls

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
