Y’all A Bunch Of Children
VoldeMartini

And I love it. Seriously, I couldn’t help but giggle at ‘thick, creamy mouthfeel’. And if you didn’t, then you need to go to your GP, and get your funny bone checked. It’s a real thing. Not as much of a laugh at Homo Erectus, but I’ll give you guys a pass on that one. Especially the folks from Team Edward. I think you guys were still having a hard time breathing. Anytime during a quiz when I can make a reference to Rachel Bloom, or Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, I am in heaven. And lo and behold, last night we had a clip from “Sexy French Depression”. Excuse me while I straight up fan girl for a bit. #teamgreg

Blessed Are The Geek(s), For They Shall Inherit The Earth
VoldeMartini

Or, in our case last night, the other section of the bar. Once we got those bankers outta there, we were able to start out fantastic night. I don’t know what I did good karma wise yesterday, but I got one of those coveted front parking spots. Oh yes, it was glorious. Didn’t have to make a long trek in this humidity, and wasn’t all sweaty when I walked in the door. Everything’s coming up Milhouse. I wasn’t lying when I said I prefer the Moulin Rouge ‘Like A Virgin’ to the original. Just something about 2 mustachioed men singing together brings me joy I cannot find anywhere else. Which is why I am frequently at Pegasus downtown. I need

Fiesta: Medals, Cascarones, and Drunks
VoldeMartini

I’ve been in San Antonio for almost 25 years, and it is only know that I am starting to understand Fiesta… and truly despise it. I don’t recall making floats for school, but apparently that’s a thing now. I spent my Saturday making a pretty damn awesome Minnie Mouse Shoebox Float for my kiddo’s day care parade. It had tissue paper fringe, a theme, little figurines. It was great. Well, I thought it was awesome. The Little just cared about dragging it behind her. We took it to school, and I saw the other kids floats. And was really disappointed in mine. They were Fiesta Floats on steroids. It was insane. It’s always a competition with parents, I have

You Wronged Me Jackie. And I Will Never Forget It
VoldeMartini

Pretty Pretty Princess. What a fun game for children, and adults, provided we can turn it into a drinking game. I remember playing this game with schoolmates at a sleepover when I was a kiddo. Now, this was a slumber party for one of the girls in my classes birthday. One of those “you have to invite all the girls in the class or else it’s rude” deals. So I scored an invite. Schweet. Everything’s coming up Milhouse.  The game was old, so the original pieces were gone. But in their place were these fantastic pieces of costume jewelry, probably given by an eccentric aunt. The rules were the same; you have to get a ring, a bracelet, a necklace

Ah, Yes. The All Important Genovia Convention.
VoldeMartini

Greetings and salutations folks. Katie here, bringing you the shenanigans from last night. I’m a forgetful person. It’s just who I am, and you can’t judge me for it. I can though, and I did. Turns out, when you clean out your car, you need to remember to actually put things back. I didn’t, and therefore, left the speaker for our happy little quiz space in the garage. Now, we’ve all experienced quiz without auditory amplification, and I think it’s safe to say, we don’t want that again, right? Right. Luckily, traffic wasn’t the dirty mistress it usually is, so the trip didn’t take too long. HOWEVER. While turning down

Why All The Hatred For Paul Rudd?
VoldeMartini

Our round 4 last night was about zoos. Having a 3 year old makes me an expert on zoos, and animals of all kinds, I’ll have you know. We go to the San Antonio Zoo about once a month, because there is nothing more fun than chasing a toddler in the heat, while trying to teach them about Jaguars, and Kookaburras, and AVOIDING THE CAROUSEL AT ALL COSTS. The carousel is a cool, thing, don’t get me wrong. They even have a manatee you can ride on. However, a 3 year old has no interest in the manatee, and only wants to ride on the alligator. Maybe we shouldn’t have called her Ellie-gator so much. She thinks she is one with them. It’s the first thing she wants to see

Mouth Noises
VoldeMartini

As someone who can’t hold a tune in a bucket, I am in awe of A Capella groups. I think I’ve watched Pitch Perfect 100 times. However, I can’t get into singing competition shows. It just lacks that oomph that I need with people who make pretty noises with their mouths. I haven’t listened to a lot of Pentatonix, however. So I went to the handy-dandy interwebs, and watched some videos. And then more videos. And still more videos. I fell into the rabbit hole that is Youtube, trying to watch their stuff. No shame, I’ve been watching Todrick Hall videos for the past hour or so. I’ll probably move on to “Challenge Videos” next. Watching

Jess's Sweet Jams 2008
Jess

Thank you The Lion and Rose Park North for letting me get my feet wet with quizzing again. I've been off the market for a while now, so to speak, and I am more than ready to take on the pub quiz world once more! With teams like The Lawn Chair Club, #FreeMelania, and My Friends at The Counter around, how can I not be? Great job quizzers! As with all first-time (in a long time) gigs, something has to go wrong. It's an art form, really, when one can make their online media player who-shall-not-be-named skip like an old mix CD your crush burned for you. But every cloud has a silver lining! I was so pleased when we got to take a nostalgia journey together back in time to listen to

Writing This On My Foxfire Browser
VoldeMartini

Holy smokes. We had 16 teams last night. 16! Thanks, Obama. Is that still a valid thing to say? I don’t know. Now, I know Will McAvoy’s speech in the first episode is the most memorable, but the show in its entirety is amazing. Basically, everything that comes out of Charlie Skinner’s mouth is pure gold. Until Sorkin decided to say, “Nah, I’m done” and ended it. Because he’s the most rude. MOST RUDE, SORKIN. But don’t let that get you down. Be like me, and rewatch the series eight or nine times, because you are sure there is something SOMEWHERE that you missed that eludes to a continuation of the storyline. I will not rest until

The Stranger
VoldeMartini

Last night, my usual spot was usurped by some normal people who didn’t even stay for quiz. Because rude. They also decided to abandon their table for 10 minutes to go outside and have a smoke. Because also rude. That left me to do quiz from an unknown spot. I was out of my element, and it didn’t feel right. Not to brag, but I am functionally ambidextrous, so doing everything backwards wasn’t physically hard. My brain just couldn’t cope with the back-ass-wards nature of the next booth. I like my tiny table. It gives me enough space to sit not at all like a lady, and also survey all that I rule. I mean, host. You know, to check for cheaters and hyenas

It’s Ash Wednesday!
KelpStar

Or, as I like to call it, Fat Tuesday’s lesser-known little brother. Hey, look. Look at this. It’s a blog. Straight outta the 50s, a gosh-darn blog. Pacific Rim Job was all sassy that I didn’t read the scores out, but there they are, just to your left. Hmph. Tonight, these darling quizzers failed me. For the first time since I started, there was a question about the Baby-Sitters Club, which, as everyone knows, is the book series for girls ages 8-16. And not a single solitary team got it right. My heart is broken. As is Ann M. Martin’s, you heathens! Actually, I was just at a Scholastic Book Fair (remember those? Probably not)

As I Lay Dying
VoldeMartini

Oh, people who don’t know proper food safety, why do you continue to do this to me? Fun times, laying in my bed, laptop propped up on my legs, trying to type at just the weirdest angle. My bed is covered in saltine cracker crumbs, and I spilled my 7-Up all over my mermaid blanket. Life is hard when your stomach is in the midst of a terribly dubbed kung fu movie, in which the plot stopped making sense 10 minutes into the film, and you’re only still watching it because you’re too lazy to find the remote. It’s clear that my digestive system is the villain in all this, for it is taking all of the beatings. But enough about my problems. Did you guys

Lupercalia: Now with 40% More Vestal Virgins
VoldeMartini

Guys. Lupercalia was nuts. They’d start off by sacrificing a goat AND a dog. You know, like you do for all your typical festivals. Then, men between the ages of 20 and 40 would get in some skimpy goat-thongs, and run along the Palatine border. Then, I assume, they would eat some cake and go to sleep. Because that’s what you do during a fertility festival, right? I vote we bring it back. Allow young folk to run along the Riverwalk in thongs, and eat some cakes made by a few Vestal Virgins. Step One: Find some Virgins. Step Two: Forget the plan because that’s hard and lets just get drunk on the Strip. Speaking of (another) Strip, we had

Monkey Bone may have been a terrible movie, but it had Brendan Fraser, so it’s gold to me.  250 gold stars to you, Mr. Fraser. And here’s my personal number. Last night may  have left me sounding like a teenage boy going through puberty, but that’s always an exciting thing. I’m not intimidating in the least to begin with, but when I have to shout at people to quiet down, it’s on. Like Donkey Kong. And other things that rhyme with on. I still had fun.

Betty White... How do I begin to explain Betty White?

Betty White is immortal. She has sex with her socks on. I hear she’s a dominatrix and a porn star. I hear she’s actually a man. She’s still a virgin. One time she had sex with John F. Kennedy. And he told her she was pretty. One time she punched me in the face... It was awesome. These were some of you guys’ answers for our question about erotomania, and Betty White. Now, I personally believe that Betty White is an immortal dominatrix, but that it neither here nor there. Our visual round had to do with various adaptations of the Wicked Witch of the West,
