Life of Brian aka Go To The Library
The Fortress

I’ve been told to watch to this movie. I’ve never seen it and I don’t know where to get it. So I was asking some questions on where I could find this. I did some thinking and I realized I could probably find this at the LIBRARY!   I’ve recently made a pact with myself to go to the library instead of running to Amazon every time I want to read a book. Because lots of books I don’t want to own, I just want to read once.   In a time when we are feeling that we are feeling that we are taxed for services we don’t need and sometimes don’t want, here is a great resource we’ve already PAID FOR! The library is

Yeah, well what can I say about myself...A LOT! 

But I won't. I'm just your regular quiz-mistressing chick on in the city. Sounds like a million dollar sitcom idea to me. 

Actually QM's are more of 250K reality show idea on MTV. My show would be akin to Jersey Shore, but no fist pumping or pregnant short people. 

...but back to me. I'm called The Fortress...no idea why though, so come out and see me in action and maybe we can come up with some ideas why together!

"Boyfriend Song"
The Fortress

That should be the name or at least in parenthesis on every Taylor Swift song. I’m going to be honest; I cannot stand Taylor Swift. I didn’t like her before it was cool! I didn’t like her back when there were teardrops on her guitar based on the boyfriend Drew, who was a non-celebrity so he gets to live his life in relative Taylor Swift anonymity.     Sorry to have gone off on that tangent. But someone couldn’t think of the name of a specific Taylor song and so they put in the most appropriate fake song title, “Boyfriend Song”   In layman's terms, I love my quizzers because they understand my dislike

FTT The New Kids Bop Rap Crew
Rainier

While I am not Baillie I like to think I had as much fun as she did at quiz! Seriously you were all a lot of fun to host for and I look forward to hearing how you describe me to her when she gets back. We had some great times reading answers given and answers joked. I also threw plenty of shade for B's that look like G's and so on and so forth. Still the highlight of the night for me was the answer FTT standing for Failure to Titty instead of Failure to Thrive. What came after that was a great idea for a new edgy kids bop rap group FTT.  1st - Ragnarok Survivors 2nd - The B Team Final scores were fairly consistent from

Folks around these parts know me by a lot of names. Having grown up in Seattle I went by Cookie during my time playing baseball. Also had the nickname Nature Boy at summer camp, and in high school Spanish class I was Diablo. Along with my many names come many talents. I was the state pickleball champion two years in a row (2005-2006) and have a pretty mean drinking arm when it comes to bar games. Try your luck and challenge me to some pool if you feel lucky. Am a passionate world traveler with plenty of plans to keep moving along in the future. Currently enjoying life and laying it all on the line Monday night at the Blue Star Cafe & Pub.

Yeah, that's definitely not in the list of items I'd have suspected to say on a Monday.   We had a fun one over at Odin as we once again visited the can-stacked warehouse brewing area while I stepped in for the lovely Baillie. Five courageous souls put aside the rivalries of March Madness to duke it out over free drinks, gift cards, and momentary internet fame. Could they withstand my senseless over arching enthusiasm? Would we finish quiz before the city turned off water for the city block? Would we get chilly without the banned propane heating lamps?!   Only quiz would tell... Spoiler alert?

The Return of Chicago 60612
The Fortress

Yeah, that’s right! I got a pair of take no prisoner’s quizzers from Chi-Raq! The father regales me with tails of being one of the only white people in high school in the 50’s and the son has heard these stories more times that he would care to count.  The fact is they are a fun team and I look forward to seeing them every week. The best part about them though is their home town pride. Whenever there is a Chicago question they always make sure to not only right now the city but they rep their zip code even. Haha They even are willing to help me ask people to move when they are at the table near the TV, by saying, “Oh he won’t move? Do you

Euphemism Off!
The Fortress

That’s right folks, last night we had ourselves a good ol’ Euphemism off, present your best euphemism for this question:   R4 Q8: Legend has it that Pope John the Twelfth died in the saddle - that is to say, doing what thing that Popes really aren't supposed to do?   Of course, the answer is having sex, and a few of the teams wrote that but for the actual participation in the euphemism off, here are my rankings from worst to first:   Horizontal Mambo “intercourse”, submitted by Alcohooligans Flogging the Bishop, submitted by A Jerk, A Snatch and a Giant Angry Gash Hailing

Keep it Tight, Keep it Right!
The Fortress

It never fails in quiz that when someone doesn’t know the answer they will just right down the funniest thing they can think of in that particular category. So last night in for an exercise question and a certain super common callisthenic exercise, instead of putting down a callisthenic exercise, they put down what I would consider a strength training exercise. In getting great bad answers, I like to judge them by how close they are to the actual answer, big points if they are funny but way off the mark, and medium points if it was just a clever mistake. No points if you write “Cher” for every answer you don’t get. You must couple her with some to make her more

Geek Bowl Is Over?
The Fortress

Well even still I met a really nice woman named Rainey who came to quiz while she waited for her flight. The reason why I bring her up is because she was in town for the yearly extravaganza, Geek Bowl!   So I’m going to chronicle my Geek Bowl experience for you.   Friday at 4:00 pm: I leave work in order to put on my awesome Grunge costume that I put together because Geek Bowl was in Seattle. Due to a series of unfortunate events, the normally reliable shuttle I take too and from work didn’t get me to my car for 2 hours. It normally takes 25 min.   7:00 pm: I finally show up to the party, I’ve forgotten my ticket

Why with the snow?
The Fortress

What the heck is going on here?! The best social media post I’ve seen about this weather was: Mother Nature: You can't have all four seasons in a week. PNW: Hold my beer.   When I read that, I honestly couldn’t find the lie. I mean, we’ve definitely had all 4 seasons in a week. If I had to guess why we’ve had such stupid weather this week, I’d have the following guesses: Mother Nature just found out she’s a side chick. Mother Nature’s dog died this week.

Martin Schorsazy
The Fortress

It was a surprisingly eventful night at Odin. There was no free beer, but we did have a man run with a baby, as well as a large contingency of Patriot’s fans as well as a round where the only answer spelled correctly was Spielberg (See in the title my most favorite spelling of Scorsese) in addition to an accusation of cheating. Let’s return to my favorite part of the evening, a man running with a baby! So one of my teams had a baby last month, she is adorable but that is beside the point. The point is I was asking a bonus question and the group was initially stumped, then the crowd parted like the Red Sea because a man was running carrying a practically

Yeah that’s right, that happened! Last night at Odin Brewery, the owner gave each quizzer…not each team…not one for every six people; each and every person got a 6 pack of Hilliard’s IPA! So to all of my quizzers thanks for coming out and hanging with me at Odin, and stay awesome! Let’s talk about quiz…we got beer! Ok, let’s talk about what happened at quiz…we got beer! The one thing that I must admit is worth noting, is that I, a grown woman couldn’t say vagina without laughing. Something else I would be loath to forget, THERE WAS A BABY!

There is Fruit on my Burger??
The Fortress

Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun; the question was simple, identify the fruit. I felt that this was a simple question with only one possible answer. I was mistaken.   So let’s eliminate Beef, special sauce and cheese, because those are clearly not fruit. We are left with pickles, onions, sesame seeds and bread. I’ll also eliminate lettuce and bread. So here we sit with a 50/50 chance of getting this question right. Let’s do a small bit of research just because we can.   Fruit: (n) The sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seed and

What up Odin Brewing! Happy New Year! I did a little subbing tonight for the regular host Baillie. Odin is a pretty cool spot. The teams are full at 6 people so the competition is pretty strong. There were 3 teams tonight but it was a full house! To full in fact, 4-fitted had 8 players, and knew from the beginning they were playing for fun; kind of like the 49ers were during week 17 against the Hawks. Wheel House and Team Wilson were rule followers and in it to win it. I’ve had a weird second day of the New Year.

I Need to Complain about Amazon

I wish I had a better attitude about this, but I need to complain about how Amazon has really upset me! 6 days ago, I ordered a t-shirt on Amazon for my boyfriends’ mom. I ordered it with the knowledge that it typically takes 3-5 days for this item to actual ship. As I would like to have this item before I see BFM (boyfriend’s mom) next week, I paid an extra $3.99 to have the item shipped next-day mail. Today (the 6th day) I get an email from Amazon saying that my item shipped (WOOT!) as I read the email I find that my shirt isn’t supposed to arrive until the 31st, with is more than one day from today, the 27th.   Not
