Tutty Byes
SammiB

Hey y'all, I'm gonna keep this one short, because between my kid cutting molars and me cutting onions, there've been a lot of tears in the Brown household today.  I'm also watching the Great British Bakeoff, and am trying to teach my daughter to say "Tutty Byes" because I think it might just be the cutest way to say goodbye that was ever invented.  You guys had quite a good quiz last night: There were many perfect scores across many rounds. You guys must be studying.  In the first round I asked you Do you want ants? Because THAT'S how you get ants! and you all pretty much dominated it. The second round was a Smash-mouth

I Drink Your Castle. I Drink it up!
SammiB

Hey y'all!  I am currently watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The episode where she drinks too much, but instead of acting like she's hungover, she's acting stoned. So weird.  Anyway, I know some of you may be feeling a little hung over this morning, including The Lone Wulf, who chose to tie one on and play quiz at the same time, which is kinda how you're supposed to play quiz! He was lovely company and gave me many thumbs-ups all night. I thought quiz was pretty fun last night, how about you? Our first round was all about Mud and the second round had you guys guessing #1 hits from

You Can Just Throw that Round 3 Away
SammiB

Hey-o!  Um, I think this was one of my favorite quizzes I've ever done. That Round 2 had me crying I was laughing so hard! And you guys were crying laughing over all of your points. It was definitely a high scoring round.  And then Round 3 had me putting on my English accent. You guys all had the exact same score that round: 5. Which basically means that we could have just thrown the round out. Bummer for me, since I put SO MUCH EFFORT into my inflection, but that's how quiz goes sometimes!  Most of you jokered round 2, which inflated our mid-quiz scores. With 4 folks playing as a team of 1, it wasn't much of a surprise to learn that

Well, you, Texas: Do you have to ask yourself one?
SammiB

Dudes.  I hope you all washed your hands really well, because the stomach flu was at my house when I got home last night. Do you know what the best/worst time is as a mom? When your kid is sick. It's the best, because your kid just wants to be held. It's the worst because that same kid will vomit all over you and then go right back to cuddling on you.  And you're covered in vomit. God, I love being a mom. I'm so glad I got to have quiz with you all though! We had some quizzers come out in support of our new bartender Ariel, and another team that usually quizzes on Wednesdays.  Some of you enjoyed the crawfish, and I believe I caught a

I can make your eggs drop (Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap, Clap)
SammiB

Thank you for writing this down and making this title happen. You did that, dear quizzers. You did.  Five teams joined us last night, and we had several spectators that couldn't stay away from my comedic stylings (they said on my way to the bathroom).  Last night's quiz was fun! And maybe my subconscious put together the play list, because there were a lot of songs about doin' it. Whoops! And 15 Step had a bass line that can make eggs drop. Of course I started the night playing "Eye of the Tiger" as we did our Rocky round that was mostly about rocks.  And then you guys were scratching your heads trying to figure

I'm Ron Burgundy?
SammiB

Hey y'all Right now my kid is waking up from a nap, and has decided now is a good time to practice standing up and trying to walk by herself. Lord knows why. Last time she tried this feat, she banged her head and wailed like she was dying.  Kids, man. They're weird.  But you know what's not weird? Our quiz-love. Last night's quiz was super fun, IMO. So fun, that we have spectators. I got stopped on my way out and was told that, although the questions are hard, I am super entertaining.  It's a wonder my head could fit out the door last night.  Well I had a whoops in round one where I said the answer out loud. Enjoy it, because it's

Awesome Blog Title
SammiB

I had, like, 3 titles by the end of the night, and you know that I can't remember any of them.  It is my fatal flaw as a Quiz Master. You guys!!! We had so much fun last night! We had so many QMs in the audience, which makes my heart smile. We had Gerald, Evan, and Ron! We also had one topical team name on Betsy DeVoss, of course.  You guys were killing me with your hilarious wrong answers like "Butt" and "My Butt" last night. I mean, make me read "butt," and I'm probably going to crack up every time.  That being said, you guys all held off on jokering until

Is Your Wavelength Short and Hard Enough...?
Evan

For those of you who showed up to see Samantha's glowing face, it must have been quite a shock to be greeted by MY ugly mug, huh? But who am I kidding-- most of you were already privy to Sam's short respite from quiz. She warn't feeling so hot, so I stepped in to quiz your pants off.   And who, pray tell, was even wearing pants by the end of quiz...?   I rest my case.   Speaking of which, the visual round mentioned A Dog's Purpose, which,

Rod Wax & The Threesome
SammiB

It's rare that I am caught off guard like I was last night.  It was our first night starting quiz at 8PM, so I didn't expect to have a huge turnout, but we ended up with quite a few people in the room, including two gals and a guy who were visiting from out of town, they said. Sat down right in front of me, they did.  Three rounds of tequila + beers and suddenly they were not whispering any more. Sounded, and hell, LOOKED to me by the end of the night, that the guy was clearly going to ride the tricycle. And if you don't know what I mean, watch more HIMYM.  So I stumbled every now and then when I looked up and saw lots of making out. This dude

In Russia, Book Fingers YOU
SammiB

Oh Hey There Water Tank!  Last night was our final night where quiz starts at 8! So many of you guys expressed that it was tough to get to the bar by 7, so they listened to you! We are officially moving to an 8PM start time next week We had fun tonight, and we even had a new emerging winning team! Statler and Waldorf Death Panel and Ground Control to Major Dong were tied up after Round 7--a very rare feat! So heading into Round 8, it was all down to who knew more random crap. It turns out that  Statler and Waldorf do--maybe because they are older, who knows?

Get your Wiz on While you Quiz On
SammiB

Sometimes stuff happens mid-quiz and you have to stop and talk about it. Like the super uncomfirmed but somehow still out there story that Donald Trump paid some Russian prostitutes to pee on a bed that Obama slept in.  So of course, I allowed teams to change their names if they wanted to, which the team formerly known as douchenozzels chose to do. They became I Bet Donald Is Pissed. Nice. We had 3 double point rounds last night, which lead to many folks using their Joker on a round that wasn't round 8. That means that we headed into Round 8 knowing that any team could win. Unfortunately, every team got

Black Cock Jokes Abound
SammiB

So, sometimes I get to gabbing with quizzers before quiz starts. And then I get lovely blog titles, like this one. Last night I was getting schooled on the history of a french dude, John Napier (turns out he was Scottish--FACT CHECKED, Ryan) whose name dons a street in Rattan Creek (the neighborhood closest to the bar, and where most of my quizzers live). Turns out this dude was a brilliant mathematician--he gave us logarithms (sweet?). He also had a black rooster that he would tell people he could talk to. People = servants. So when he had each servant walk in and stroke his cock, the guilty party

After all... YOLO
SammiB

Hey There Water Tank!  Last night was super special to me. First of all, I got to see everyone again! I've missed many of the regular teams, and it was awesome to see you all come out for your last Holiday Hurrah! We also had some new teams wander in--WELCOME WELCOME! We get a little rowdy at The Tank, as you saw, but we have a pretty tight knit group. I was glad to welcome more and more into the fold!  So we had a whopping 7 teams last night--very nice. One of them consisted of my husband and his brother from California! They did horribly, but they said they had fun, so that's all that matters, right? Over the holiday I've had a lot of in-laws in town. We've played

SammiB

Hey Water Tank, Every night I walk away with an amazing blog title. And then my kid wakes me 3-4 times a night and I totally forget it. Bummer for me, and for my blog. But hey! We had a good time last night, and we all got to hang out afterwards. You know that, though, you were there.  We had a round on recent stuff, and we had a shout out to an Austin legend in the bonus. Then, if you weren't sad after the bonus question, we had a whole round on singers who died. After that, we tested your knowledge of TV and short stories. Turns out you guys aren't huge fans of Capote.  Then we had a round on Dogs and Elves,

Oh Water Tank. You gave me such a great night last night.  We got two newbies that joined us--both named Richard. So our quiz-champ for many weeks running joined forces, and they were the 3 Richards. I was just a little disappointed they didn't go with We Have 3 Dicks, but what can ya do?  Ron Freshour joined us and stuck around for the witty banter--which I always appreciate. And Tank Teabaggers brought their full A-team tonight. It's like the team is solidifying before my eyes.  It was a really fun night! I used to be really nervous about engaging

But What Does that have to do with POOP?
SammiB

Water Tank, how I love thee, let me count the ways: One: I have some great regulars. You guys take my jabs in stride, and yell out my blog titles, taking all of the guesswork out of blogging the next day. Round 4 was my favorite, with a Teabagger yelling, "Yeah, but WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH POOP?"  Two: Our bartenders are awesome. Sarah and Jessica rule, obviously, because I'm pretty sure they know all of the quizzers by first name already. I hope you guys are treating them well.  Three: Even though there's a single-sitter bathroom, I've never had to wait. How is it that we ladies have become so coordinated?  Four:
