For Maddie
WhitneyWhitworth

Hotel, Hotel, Holiday Innnnn (say whaaa?) Always a pleasurable way to spend my Wednesday. Tonight’s quiz was dedicated to Maddie, our black lab quiz dog, who some of you may have recognized. Unfortunately, I was sorry to hear Maddie passed away this past week. I truly hope that you are chasing Kevan and Hardison way up in that big blue yonder, right now.  I really want to try and find a way to memorialize all of our Hotel Hotel furry and feathered friends somehow, like utilize one of the blank walls… or install some sort of name placard on the tables. I’ll figure it out. We had

Hotel Hotel and the Resurrection Stone
WhitneyWhitworth

Quizzlets! Forgive me, and forget that last week’s blog ever happened! Let’s just start anew. Last night, we were able to send off Hardison (the crow) and Kevin (the chicken) in true style. I must say, your team names- due to, well, our departed feathered friends, as well as the untimely demise/timely resurrection of our quiz- were some of the best I’ve ever seen. Kentucky Fried Kevin, Four Pitchers and a Funeral, Rumors of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated, Today the Blue Jays Were the Victim of Fowl Play, Bob Loblaw's Been Canceled? JK, All Kevins go to Heaven (RIP Kevin) and, best name of the night, The Hotel Hotel AV Club.

WHYYYYYY GOD, WHYYYYYYY- A Synopsis of Goodbyes and How to Cope with Loss
WhitneyWhitworth

Well guys, it appears that last night was, unexpectedly, our final quiz together. I’m really sad that I have to be the bearer of bad news, and I’m really sad that we are losing our Wednesdays together. We had a lot of good times and a lot of really fun quiz memories: the time my computer overheated, the time that bird exploded, the time that I sang round number two for you because our speakers weren’t working… oh, wait, that was last night. I guess we get to go out on an interesting note, if nothing else. Guh, just like my dead grandfather, I wish I got to see you just one more time. Right now, I host a quiz on Tuesdays at The Retro at 8 if you ever need a

B-b-b-Bonus Q-q-q-quiz
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello lil’ quiz ba-ba-ba-ba-babies! Summer may be winding down, but out quiz is still hot! Literally, I feel like I am sweating in a way that 24 Hour Fitness hasn’t been able to provide for me for months! (Mostly, because I haven’t been going as often. My bad.) We had a pretty good quiz last night. First of all, awesome job to our amazing score keep-stress, Bailey. I’m pretty sure many of you can remember the hard times, while we were in-between score keepers, and can appreciate how great it is when you have a bitchin’ babe like Bailey reading your scores and team names with mere comic genius. Well done, my dear. She certainly had her work cut

Like Pizza Hut's New Slogan, This Quiz Is the F*&%ing Cheesiest
WhitneyWhitworth

Listen, if you set me up for a zillion cheese jokes, regardless of my unfortunate reactions towards my beloved dairy, I’m going to make them. That is basically the only time that I don’t have to take a lactaid when around that much cheese, which is a win for me. And, yes, for the record, Blade Runner, albeit dope, is the Velveta of the action movie world. Watch it again. You’ll see. I always have such a good time with y’all. For my Aussie, who joined one of our teams on a whim, y’all is hardcore American slang for “all you all.” I think you provide me with the mid-week laughs that I need. Yes, granted, sometimes you are like the toddlers

The One Where I Talk About My Lactose Intolerance
WhitneyWhitworth

Mon petit quizzards- another day in the books! First, I would like to welcome our newest score keeper, Kristin. Personally, I think we need to come up with the most bad ass nick name this side of the University Bridge for her. If you have any suggestions, I will reward the best one with a shot from the bar next week. I’m dead cereal. I’m also forgetful, so you’ll have to remind me… maybe… probably.   Here are a few things I want to remind/inform you of, before I get to the leader board. First, my fish at work died today. He was a magical neopluradon, or some sort of sucker fish whose dinosaur name evades me. His actual name was never determined-

American Beauty and the Quiz Mistress
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello my quiz babies, mama missed you. Sometimes, children, when I leave you alone for a week, I expect to come back and everyone has broken limbs or something. I really do, be it hosting a quiz, breaking up fights between my three cats or taking care of buiz-naz at work, feel like a glorified mother (as though mothers get glory, like, ever.) It’s okay, my grown-ass children, I will hold your hand through the big scary quiz if you need it. I mean, we have asked a lot of Trump questions in the past, and that shit is straight up frightening.   Tonight, however, there were none, and it is, with great pleasure, that I can type this sentence. However, we did cover a wide

You Guys Are Worth More than Rio Gold, to Me!
WhitneyWhitworth

My quizzards. I hope you have recovered after last night’s heat stroke. My gosh, we developed quite the sweat lodge. I mean, I’ve always wanted to find some sort of quizer/Quiz Mistress bonding activity, but I didn’t think we would gather, the lot of us, for hot yoga. For the record- yes, I was wearing my yoga pants, so maybe, on some subconscious level, I did know that this would be the day.   The heat had me a little flustered, and though there was some turbulence, I Delta’d my way out of that crap. Sometimes, you just got to admit to yourself that your dinosaur of a computer may need to Griffy its way in to retirement.   Technology

Our Quiz Really IS a Mashup of The Exorcist Meets Sound of Music
WhitneyWhitworth

Welp, guys, as far as pick-me-ups go, you folks were on the money tonight, even if some of your answers were for pure fun, and not point drivin- such as the answer “this round is IstanBULLSHIT” when it came to your, well, Istanbull portion of the quiz. I also like the fifteen different ways I learned to spell piranha tonight (and, even as I type this, being a child who flunked her spelling class in fourth grade AND after reading piranha 19 times tonight, I still managed to misspell it while I was writing this up.) And, I also learned that The Exorcist is, apparently, easily confused, somehow, for The Sound of Music. Most importantly, when breaking the

Remember to Spay and Neuter Your Pets
WhitneyWhitworth

I would like to dub tonight “the battle of the Bobs,” because one of the highlights for me was our second place Bob-off between Bob Loblaw Strikes Back and Not Great, Bob! who both tied on the scoreboard and had to settle it the old fashioned way, by rapid fire naming as many famous Bobs as they possibly could. And while this could have gone on for minutes, it really only lasted a few rounds. In the end, Not Great Bob! was great, as they walked away with the twenty dollar gift certificate. Woo! The rest of the score board looked a little like this:   The

Trump- The Merkin of the Pube World
WhitneyWhitworth

Salutations, friends! It’s been a whole week since our mascot died. What did you do to celebrate his life? I hope you got out in a park and fed some birds, or watched some NatGeo docs or something. I, myself, spent a chunk of my weekend being chased by my somewhat feral pixie bob, so it was like I was embodying our dead feathered friend. All of that got put aside though, so that we could celebrate more happy times together. Our quiz last night definitely one of those times. I mean, seriously, guys, how can you

Hardison, We Hardly Knew Ye
WhitneyWhitworth

It’s not every quiz that I have something important to say- in fact, it’s not any recap that I have something important to say, but due to our recent loss tonight of one of our own Fremont regulars, Hardison the Crow, I’m going to utilize this space with a brief memorial. But before I get to that, let me just recap what we knew about Hardison. He was a crow/raven/black bird (it’s hard to tell from his practically obliterated corpse,) and he loved his literal bird’s eye view from atop the power transformer of our quiz. He seemed kind of young, so his life was taken from him far too soon, but freak accidents happen, even in nature. Anyway, here is the tribute

Pure Moods Is Our Next Quiz Playlist
WhitneyWhitworth

So, it looks like there was some sort of sportsball game on tonight. I’m thrilled that you little quizzlets chose me over Ichiro. Is he even a thing anymore? Did Trump deport him? I feel like he did, or has probably alluded to it. Seriously, I’ve seen boiled hotdogs that look better and more attractive than that ball zit, and I’m a vegetarian. Do you ever find yourself writing a blog in a crowded bar next to a bunch of parents who have ditched their kiddos for the evening so that they can sing Shoop? I am in that situation right now. And to think, just mere hours ago we had started our journey through quiztopia, exploring all sorts of double W words- and

My quizzlets! We meet again! And again, and again, or so it was prophesized by the red woman, so get prepared because Whitney is coming- and now crying, because I am once again reminded that it will be another year before the next Game of Thrones. God, I hate suspense. Okay, whatever, we aren’t going to talk about Game of Thrones because we have other topics to cover. Like how effing awesome you guys were tonight. Cereal-sly, out of fifteen teams, all but one jokered early in the game, using their double points on round two, which everyone scored 13 points or

Just Call Me Ms. Hannigan

Lil’ quizlets, I’m back, and I've adopted you for good this time. I'm basically your Ms. Hanigan (yes, I know, she isn't the one who adopts Annie, per se,) except with more alcohol, less cigarettes, and what may be a bigger distaste for children. I’m very happy to call Hotel Hotel my own, and now we really have time to get to know each other. You know, as intimately as a mistress and her subjects ever can. Okay, enough about that before it gets too weird, let’s move right on in to talking about the questions.

Tis been an Honor
Quiz Wiggles

Dear Hotel Hotel,   Thanks for the last year of bonus beer questions, t-shirt contests, and epic dance battles. Along with Meat Pizza and Spire Cider you've somehow managed to make Wednesdays not only bearable but something to look forward to.  I once again go forth to disappear into those hallowed halls of learning known as graduate school. Pray that someday I will return from the other side. But guess what... your favorite babysitter is back!  You will be left in the excellent hands of Quizmistress Whitney! Please go on and keep our traditions alive.    xo, Meaghan

My name is Meaghan.  I make weird voices and corny puns and stupid theme songs.  My theme songs are usually melodically interesting, but don't make a lot of literal sense.  Sometimes people think it's funny.  Sometimes it's just awkward.  When I am not quizzing I like to ribbon dance with cats.
