You Don’t Know Jack
VoldeMartini

Before the internet was what it is today (ahem Rule 34), my sister and I used to play ‘You Don’t Know Jack’ all the time. We’d also use the CD-ROM of the Encyclopedia Britannica, but that’s another story. So, we’d play this game against each other, and just have a vast majority of knowledge that any normal 7 and 8 year old shouldn’t have. Play outside, pretend to be Power Rangers/Spice Girls/The Kids On Zoom, and go inside and play on the computer. Damn, I miss being a kid. Last night we had an AMA round, and it was pretty cool. Seeing as my interactions with people with a level of celebrity have been awkward to say the least (I called

Five....****.
VoldeMartini

I hit traffic this morning on my way to drop off the monster and come into work. This wasn’t normal workday traffic, oh no. It was as if everyone in San Antonio lost their damn mind and decided today would be a great day to drive with the driving comprehension of a banana slug. Here is the list of the things I saw on my 2 hour commute this morning. Keep in mind, this drive takes me 20-30 minutes on a good day. -At least 3 women putting on eyeliner while in traffic. EYELINER. The devil of makeup applications, and you decide to do this while maneuvering through traffic. I’d usually say I’m impressed, but no. I’m not. You can go straight to fun, because

I Keep Myself Young By Always Laughing At The Word Fart
VoldeMartini

I can’t keep a straight face when I say it. I know, it’s childish, but I can’t help it. Recently my kiddo started saying “Mommy, I farted”, and it takes everything I have not to outright laugh. Parenting is 60% keeping them from falling down, and 40% trying not to laugh when they do. There’s also keeping them fed and stuff, but it’s such a small percentage, it’s not worth noting. In other news, welcome to 2017 everyone. We made it through the wilderness. Somehow we made it through and through. I didn’t know how lost I was, until I found you. Don’t picture Madonna with that. Because I don’t. It’s

Queen Of The Lardpail
VoldeMartini

The year may have been hard, but I ain’t down yet. I’m not hollerin’ Uncle anytime soon. We’re going to get through this, guys. It’s almost over. Last night at quiz, my phone lit up with a notification from Buzzfeed. Yes, Buzzfeed, because I like to know when a quiz comes up that tells me what fancy cheese I am. Lately, I’ve been dreading these, as they have been the way I find out about whichever celebrity has passed away. Last night was no exception. I pulled down the notification bar, and I saw “Debbie Reynolds has pas…” and I lost it. I didn’t want to read the rest of it, but I clicked anyway. Maybe it was that she passed

Please Don’t Give Birds For Christmas
VoldeMartini

Everyone knows the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”. Or, you think you do until you are put on the spot and can’t remember what the 10th day brought. Doesn’t matter. What does matter, is that I spend my lunch break calculating how much it would cost to buy all these things. I made a spreadsheet and everything. Let it be known that it wasn’t until AFTER I had done all this, I was informed there is a website that tracks this every year. AND our numbers weren’t too different. Let’s go through this, shall we?

Rockin' Around The Krampus Tree
VoldeMartini

We all know about Krampus now, because of our round 4 last night, and that fantastic Holiday film last year. But do you guys know about Zwarte Pete? Well, sit down kiddos, because I’m gonna learn you some Netherlandian Christmas folklore. Zwarte Pete is Sinterklaas’ little sidekick. He listens at chimneys and reports back to Sinterklaas about who is being naughty and nice. In the tradition of naughty vs nice, good kids get candy and sweets, and bad kids… get throwing in a goddamn sack and kidnapped. Yup. So, listen to your parents kids, or you’ll get kidnapped by a man in super-duper offensive blackface. It’s reasoned that because he hangs

Mac & Cheese Monstrosity
VoldeMartini

I haven’t known anyone that puts ketchup on Mac & Cheese. And for the life of me, I do not see the appeal. I went home after quiz last night, made a bit of the Easy Mac (which is terrible to begin with), and added some ketchup. Guys, I have eaten some weird things in my life (Sawdust Soup, for one), but this took the cake for being one of the worst things I have ever ingested. Not only was it terrible Easy Mac to start, but the ketchup made it super runny and a disgusting color. It looked like someone had attempted to use cheese, then decided ‘nah’, went outside, got some clay and threw it in. It is not visually appealing in the least. But I am

Anastasia was made by Fox. ANASTASIA was made by FOX. ANASTASIAWASMADEBYFOX. ANASTASIAWASMADEBYFOX. ANASTASITAWASASWMADEBYFOX. Alright. That’s out of my system. Welcome to December folks. It was 42° when I woke up this morning, and I had fallen asleep with my fan on. I woke up and had successfully turned myself into a human Habenero’s burrito at some point in the night. And it was glorious. I can wear my boots, and scarves, and hats and all without sweating to death. Well, until 1 PM when summer weather peaks it’s head around the corner and tries to weasel its way into my Winter Wonderland. NOT TODAY, SATAN. NOT TODAY. My sister and I used

Tattoos, Turkeys, and Taphophobia
VoldeMartini

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and you know what that means? That’s right. You’re going to sit at the kids table, which is thankfully away  from your racist Uncle Mike, but you have to listen to your cousins talk about Finding Dory for 2 hours. You win some, you lose some. Luckily, I don’t have any extra family here in Texas, so it’ll just me my parents, my sister and I. But we are still going to cook enough food to feed a small militia. Because that is the American way. And I really love food. I didn’t get to enjoy my Thanksgiving for the past couple years. One was because I invited my new boyfriend over, and I didn’t want him to

I Have No Interest In Your Balls
The Babe With The Power

I don't watch sports. Yes, it's true. None. I don't care which type of ball is being handled, I don't watch it. It wasn't always like this. Up until high school I actually used to watch NFL and NBA and went to every football game of my high school. In college, I went to the occasional football game, but considering it was at Notre Dame and it gets cold as hell, the stadium is open to the goddamn midwest air, and it started sleeting early October and snowing not long after that the novelty dropped off real quick. Let's see, I could stand for hours straight in the freezing air OR I could be in my jammies on the futon watching it on NBC if I felt like it while making a profit off my student ticket

Once upon a time in 2009 I went in search of something fun to do to get me and my husband 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. You can find me on the mic at Southtown 101 on Mondays at 7PM and hanging out with the Gallifreak while he hosts at Quarry Hofbrau, Halcyon Southtown, and Sherlock's Pub & Grill!

Jay & The Others
Chandni

Quiz shall survive even the roughest of nights, and survive it did. When I got the call to sub tonight, I was laying in bed with a bag of Kit-Kats next to me binge watching Breaking Bad while reading funny Parks and Rec memes on my phone. My utterly sad and depressing night turned into one of the best days I've had since I moved to San Antonio. I grabbed the Kit-Kats and the leftover Halloween candy on my counter and was able to share a night with people who made me laugh, jammed out to my music, and eventually gave me their number after I accidentally hit on them over the mic.

Correctly Pronouncing Laoghaire Is My Intoxication Scale
VoldeMartini

For the record, it’s pronounced LEE-ree. Like that creepy person in the corner at the bar—Leery Larry. Which I guess is fitting. Since she’s a completely vile character. There’s a reason for this, I promise. We had a round with questions about Frasiers, in all their different spellings. However, I didn’t even see on questions about my favorite Fraiser, or rather Fraser. James Alexander Malcom Mackenzie Fraser, of the Clan Fraser, Lord of Lallybroch, Husband to Claire Beauchamp/Randall/Fraser, Imagination Porn to Thousands.

The Night of A Thousand Pins Dropping
VoldeMartini

7:39 PM: We have a total of 11 people in the bar. One team has braved the desolate wasteland of what was once the smoking section to acquire supplies. Once they have all they need, their team leader rushes back to their sanctuary by the window. It was a successful trip. 7:42 PM: We lost 2 people. They finished their drinks, and took refuge elsewhere. I wish them the best of luck. In a barren land of impending Comic Cons, Halloween Parties, and something known to a few as ”The World Series”, our quiz should have been a safe haven. But the allure of maybe seeing a Slutty Donald Trump proved too powerful, and we were a land apart. 7:48

I Wish I Was A Foodie
VoldeMartini

We had a round all about current trends in foods. I can say that if I’ve tried any of them, I didn’t like them. I like my food like I like my men; bland and boring. I’ve tried the foods at these fusion restaurants around town, and I just find them to be unpleasant. I don’t need a grilled cheese made with aioli and truffle something or other. I need bread and cheese. That’s it. Don’t get fancy. This is a childhood staple, and I will not have it tainted by your desire to be featured on some food show on that one network that everyone talks about.

There's Something In The News About Clowns?
VoldeMartini

I’m going to be honest, I was not looking forward to our round 3 last night, guys. I’m going to be going back to school (yay for bettering myself!) in the Spring to be an English Teacher. But then, I remembered grammar, and what how the only reason I passed my Freshman Comp class 8 years ago was because my professor didn’t get to take her sabbatical, and just passed us regardless of if we came to class or not. This wasn’t something that we heard as a rumor; oh no. She straight up told us the first day, “My husband died last year. My daughter is away at school. I was supposed to go to India, but they told me I couldn’t take my sabbatical. I don’t

Honey, I Shrunk Arnold Palmer

Here’s where I talk about how much I don’t understand the obsession with the Kardashian’s. I’m late to the game, and thought for the longest time there was only 3 of them at most. Kim, the somewhat responsible mom one, and the one that may or may not be a Sasquatch. Now I learn there’s a brother (?), and then two others who were tiny children when this all took place. And then the crazy mother… and the dad. When that all went down, I thought to myself, “Maybe I should learn more about pop culture…” Never watched their show, but from the gifs I’ve seen on the internet, I know that Sasquatch is my favorite.
