Delta Burke Is Not A Golden Girl
Quizmistress SJ

But I appreciate the effort! You knew there was a show in the ’80’s/’90’s with ladies wearing huge shoulder pads, so I’ll call it pretty close. Even though nothing will EVER compete with the greatness that is The Golden Girls.   We were back in our regular location last night, and it felt so good. All the regular things happened, and some new teams made appearance. Better Late Than Never showed up just moments after I read

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

A Change Of Venue For The Evening
Quizmistress SJ

You heard me right. We changed the venues last night. Moved next door to Sky bar. We were the masters of the stage. Ok, I wasn’t up on the stage, but I was surrounded by adoring fans while I sat on a concrete floor. Well, adoring fans and one group of douchebag 21 year olds. I thought it was a pretty interesting change for the evening, though. Lots of lights once the strobing stopped so that there wasn’t the possibility of seizures on the concrete floor. I did miss my basement, however. I’ll be glad to be back there next week!

No One Knows What The T Stands For
Quizmistress SJ

There was a lovely team that showed up halfway through quiz this evening. Just as I was taking pictures, in fact. So I got their picture, asked their team name, turns out it was TILF. Then I asked, “What does the T stand for?” They replied so rudely with, “Why do we have to explain that to everyone? It stands for team.” Well, all I can really say to that is, “Of course you have to explain that to everyone you d-bags. Just deal with it. At least your answer turns out to be kind of funny.” Only kind of.

Did You Know Legally Blonde Is On Netflix Now?
Quizmistress SJ

I mean…greatest addition ever, or what? I don’t know what it is about that show, but I just love it to bits. I think I love it as much as I love doing quiz. Especially quizzes where I get new people to play. The Washington Redskins joined on a whim. I’m not totally sure what an entire football team was doing across the country in the off-season. Ha. Bad joke. My terrible sense of humor strikes again, and to add insult to injury our 3rd place team decided to go by Rusty Nutts and Three Farting Butts because as we have already established I’m in 6th grade and think butt jokes

Quizzers, Assemble!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Ya know, because there is the Marvel quiz coming up. I think that was a Marvel thing. I’m not totally sure.   Quiz time was fun time once again last evening. New player and old were excited and pretty. Beardy Man (he wanted to be called that) was especially stoked about playing. During round 2 he came up to ask if I could make sure he got them name of one of the songs during answers. I definitely made sure he did. It was the Taylor Swift song. Ha. Taylor Swift.   Buy One Get One Full Price Beer was kicking some ass. Then, they fell behind. Then, they came back a little bit for 4th place! I’m not totally sure

Don't Call It A Comeback
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Ya know, cuz they didn’t really come back from anywhere but the bottom of the pile, but Zombie Reagan 2016 did make it into 3rd place after a night in the dark. But Bemo was back putting Mo’ Bemo; Yo’ Problem on top after a week in the dumps. Ok, not exactly the dumps, they got 2nd. This week, though, back on top. I think my favorite round of the evening was the visual round. Flowers and such. I’m in a girly mood. Flowers and such. I think my favorite team name of the evening was David Blowie. So, not so girly. Other things that occurred this evening: basically, everyone screwed the pooch on Round 8. Alphabetically

It Happened One Night At The Quiz
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Another lovely quiz evening has come and gone at Lumpy’s Downtown. Ahh…the passage of time. Alright, that would have sounded so much better if the bar wasn’t named Lumpy’s. What are ya gonna do though? Nothing. Existentialism. Everything. Well, I see the ranting has already begun. Free-form blogging. Thank god only 2 people read this thing (me and my mommy). No, wait! Hold the phone! That isn’t true! In preparation for domination last night, a new team, 5 Shots Too Many, had a team member do some research on GWD.com to find out who the biggest competition is at our little quiz. They discovered that The Guesstapo was our reigning champion,

Back To The Norm
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Yep, pretty normal life here at Lumpy’s Downtown. We had some lovely new bartenders this evening and a pretty special birthday! Bemo, one of our genius (for realsies he’s won Jeopardy 5 times), had his birthday at our quiz. Of course, I would have embarrassed him a lot more if I would have known before the last 5 seconds of quiz. Oh well, it has now been locked in my mind palace for next year. Quiz was back up to our bigger numbers. Had some newbies kill it in 2nd place, Bad Traffic-Thanks, Obama. We also had Obama Sleepover tonight because I don’t know if you know this but we are famous because Obama is here right
