My Little Toy Generator
The Babe With The Power

Growing up as an 80s kid, I think we were the first generation to grow up with THE TOY MARKETING MACHINE. Can we blame George Lucas? Because I want to blame George Lucas. Anyway, there was a nutty number of cartoons created overnight with little hanging on them other than someone somewhere wanted to make a giant wad of cash based on selling lots and lots of toys. There were actually two examples of these shows which have somehow managed to worm their way back into our consciousness.One was My Little Pony. You know, I'm a girl and all, but I was never completely into the cutesy, girlie stuff. I liked MLP and watched it now and then, but it wasn't my thing. Well, lo and behold thanks

Once upon a time in 2009 I went in search of something fun to do to get me and husband, Gallifreak, out of the house. The internet coughed up Geeks Who Drink and we were hooked. Then first Gallifreak got lured into hosting and after nearly 5 years I've been cajoled and bamboozled into hosting too. So here I am, forever on the FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY! hosting gig.

Bad News, It's A Hard-Knocked Up Life
VoldeMartini

 After hearing everyone’s horror stories about our Hell-Hail last week at quiz, I feel like a total tool with my two little dents on the roof of my car. That my mother had to point out, due to the fact that I am used to driving a hoopty car that may or may not even have a roof. Even as I write this at 8:30 in the morning, the rain has started again, and I’m pretty sure I just saw a cow fly by my office. Later, Bessie. Have fun in New Mexico. Sorry for your windshields, and mirrors, and side panels. It was a loss we all have felt. Speaking of losses, damn guys. That Denzel Round really kicked your asses. No one got a goose-egg score, but when your average

That’s The Night The Lights Went Out In San Antonio
VoldeMartini

Not the lights, but we did lose the Spurs game while they were going into Overtime. Because ain’t that just the luck. You’ll be happy to know that despite the terrible weather and such, Spurs took the game 102 to 98. SUCK IT OKLAHOMA. So, while I had your undivided attention last night, those giant bits of hail ended up being the star of the show. I think I had to repeat questions due to the fact that falling turdlets of ice were destroying the roof, and probably lowering the resell value on a few Hondas in the parking lot. Not my Focus though. That baby is battle tested, and hella resilient. Rocinante has been to and from Florida, fought her way through traffic jams, and

College: Those With Common Sense Need Not Apply
VoldeMartini

You drive east to get from San Antonio to Houston. I know this seems like a simple question, but do I have a story for you guys. I went to college in Nacogdoches, which is in East Texas. But, I’m sure you already knew that. I, however, did not. I knew vaguely where Nac was, but I couldn’t point it out on a map for the first 2 months I was there. Let’s be honest, you don’t go to SFA if you graduated at the top of your high school class. But, I digress. So, I was dating this guy who quit school after couple months (for reasons Adult Katie would have immediately put the kibosh on), and moved back to Dallas. One weekend, I decided to go

But First, Lemme Update My Insurance Before I Take A Selfie
VoldeMartini

I’m just going to say it. I love selfies. LOVE THEM. If you feel good about yourself, why not? It doesn’t matter if you’re the only one seeing it, or you post them all over social media. You do you. Think that shirt looks amazing on you? Hashtag the hell outta that top. Makeup looking surprising well? BOOM. Instagram that ho. You see news posts about “Selfies Are Ruining Society”. No, Martha. You’re inability to accept change is ruining our society. Now, get off your high horse. I like selfies because they are easy. I don’t have to ask a stranger to take my picture, because that means social interaction. And honestly, the less of that,

HEB Cakes Are Delicious Diabetes Devices.
VoldeMartini

Last night we celebrated Quiziversary. It’s been (almost) one  year since we started this nifty little journey together. Gained some regulars, lost some folks, but hey, I’ve seen you at other venues AND I DON’T TAKE KINDLY TO CHEATING. So roughly a year ago, I was looking for something to do on a weekday night with some friends, and remembered how much fun we had years and years and years ago at the Lion and Rose at the Forum doing quiz. The “Fifth Place Winners” we called ourselves, because why think to highly of themselves? Well, I joined their little team, and they could no longer call themselves the fifth place winners. Thanks to my vast assortment

Myrtle's Minions: Theresa, Elena, And Yuki
VoldeMartini

Today I saw a church marquee that said “Make It Reign.” Ah yes, as it is in the Bible, Sapphire 6:9, “Verily, I say unto thee, I shall shower from the heavens coin and currency from on high upon the most holy of holies.” Hole-ys, it should be spelt, but that Peter never could get spelling to prove a point. We got to spend an evening of our Spring Breaks together last night, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day early. It’s like when a girl gives herself an entire week for her birthday, I give St. Patrick’s Day an entire week as well. I celebrate the eradication of snakes from Ireland with destroying my liver by drinking an entire year’s

Ain't No Smoke On This Water
VoldeMartini

We’ve returned for another week here at The Lion and Rose on Broadway, but with one small difference. Alright, it’s not that small… The Lion and Rose has gone Smoke-Free. Not everyone is a fan of the new decision, but you have to go with the masses, I suppose. And smoking’s bad for you! Or so I remember from the lungs they showed us in the 4th grade. A few of you took this opportunity to rename your teams in honor of the non-smoking environment, while the rest made a mad dash for outside during scoring breaks. Two halves of a whole, and all those good things. Which is why, Freshly Fucked, your picture is a

A Mare Brothel Meme
VoldeMartini

Yesterday marked the 180th anniversary of the start of the Battle of The Alamo. But you already knew that, because you’re all so smart. I loathe anagrams. They are perhaps my least favorite word puzzles. Except the Reddit thread of different variations of “I Am Lord Voldemort”. Cuz, c’mon, you know Fred and George came up with at least 75% of these. Well, not Fred. ::sad trombone music:: But really, anagrams might be the bane of my existence. I look at them and my brain just goes, “HA. Not today Satan. Let’s think about puppies in sweaters.” Fun fact, when I have a blank expression on my face, it’s because I

Blinded by the Light Matte Formula
VoldeMartini

If I had a dollar for every time I was blinded by cosmetics, I could pay for the entire Urban Decay Collection at Sephora. Seriously, putting even a blunt tip object near your eyes is just a bad idea. Yes, I look like I’ve been fighting 7 different strains of the flu without these enhancements, but when is it enough? WHEN?! When I finally master a wingtip. That’s when. Then I can hang up my brushes, and die a happy woman. Last night’s “Listen Carefully: Alexander Hamilton” round was great. You guys did pretty well. I wasn’t kidding when I said I have been listening to it on repeat for days. I don’t know if

Oh yeah, it was also Mardi Gras.
VoldeMartini

So, this morning I was browsing the headlines. Let’s go ahead and take a gander at the biggest one. An Orange won the Republican primaries in New Hampshire. A surprising turn for Kasich, though, taking second. Granted, it wasn’t as close as the Iowa primary race, but he got in there. Good for you, Johnny Boy. The King of the Oompa Loompas wants to bring back waterboarding”, which was also one of our bonus questions last night, and also use practices that are “worse than waterboarding”. Fun fact, bud, there’s a law stating that waterboarding is a no-no. Being the president doesn’t mean you can just willy-nilly go and do whatever

VoldeMartini

If you were curious, it was 5 years ago today we had that “Shut the City Down Snowfall”. Yesterday, we had a high of 73 degrees. And people still don’t believe in Global Warming. Those are my favorite kind of news headlines; the ones where people don’t believe proven scientific fact. Like, I don’t know, the earth being round. There is an entire society dedicated to the belief that the earth is flat. The Flat Earth Society. They have a website, guys. And a “thriving online community”. You know who else has a thriving online community? Men who have sex with wall sockets. Those are your peers. And I’d prefer the company of

I'm Gonna Climb That Like A Tree
VoldeMartini

One of my favorite figures in history would have had an agenda like this. Obtain Giant soldiers, return Amber Room to Tsar Peter, scare bejeezus out of kids with cannon every morning.King Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia loved him some giants. The “Potsdamer Riesendgarde” was a unit he created, and there were some pretty strict guidelines. Well, one really. You had to be 6’2” tall, or 6 Prussian feet. Now, Friedrich didn’t exactly have the most ethical ways of getting these guys to join up. A lot of them were kidnapped, or given as gifts from other dignitaries to keep peace with Prussia. And they weren’t too happy about it; many attempted

Since I only write these once a week, we’re going to talk about it. You knew it was coming. And I think I need to talk about it. I’m assuming you all know we lost another great last week; Alan Rickman. I knew him first as Metatron, then Alexander Dane, and finally, as Professor Severus Snape. Usually, the passing of celebrities don’t affect me as they do other, but this one did. I’m not sure if it’s just because I enjoyed his work, or because he was a large part of something I had learned from growing up, but it felt almost like I was losing a family member. Dogma was one of the first films above a PG I was allowed to watch. My

The Turkey Was A Lie
VoldeMartini

Last night, your usually spunky Quizmaster was not quite herself. This is what happens when you don't go grocery shopping for 3 weeks and take the chance that the lunchmeat you put in your late night sandwich is still viable. Fun fact: it wasn't. Adulting means checking the expiration dates on things BEFORE you eat them. Otherwise, there's a good chance you'll end up sounding like you're about to cry at any given moment, and unable to make witty comments about how obnoxious coffee-shop covers are. Curse you hipsters, and your acoustic guitars.

Flute Covers For Days
VoldeMartini

I may or may not have gone home and tried to find more flute covers of songs. Then, piano covers. And ended up listening to 2 Cellos “Smooth Criminal” on repeat for 45 minutes. Sorry, neighbors. If it isn’t Adele and sobbing at 3 in the morning, it’s super classy M.J. covers. Were you guys as into those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, as I was? When my elementary school library would get a new one, the librarian would hold it for me so I could check it out on the next “Library Day”. And no, I wasn’t the kid who would turn to page 34, see that I died, and say “NO NO NO, I didn’t take my finger off the first page. I
