The Best Laid Plans
Paddycake

  Ok, so this is how my day was supposed to go yesterday...   Wake up, have some breakfast, piddle around the house a bit, go to a pool party for a few hours, come home and get my stuff ready for quiz, wait for Brent to get dropped off at the house, go to quiz with Brent and Dan, host the quiz, bring Brent home, come home, and sleep.   Here is how my day ACTUALLY went...   I woke up, and made some breakfast. I ate breakfast with Dan and my hubby, then we decided to watch Kung Fu Hustle since Dan had never seen it. My hubby decided he wanted to try to fix the gate, so he went to Home Depot to get the wood to replace

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Welcome to Hut!
Paddycake

That was probably my favorite wrong answer last night. We clearly stated the company dropped the word "Pizza" from their name, but several of you still put Pizza Hut... So... do you just call them Hut now? Or was there an additonal "Pizza" in their name at one point? I don't recall either of those things... Of course, the correct answer was Domino's, since they used to be called Domino's Pizza. You know? How did they ever associated a domino with pizza to begin with? I think I shall check wikipedia and find out... stand by...    Actually, it's really not all that interesting. The original owners bought a store called Dominick's Pizza, and when they wanted

Happy Day After Mother's Day
Paddycake

For some reason, that title makes me think of the Morning After Pill, which is kinda anti-mother's day, but whatever. I have an awesome Mom, and I had a nice long phone call with her Sunday evening while I was cooking dinner. I ope you all called your mothers, or sent them flowers, or took them out to get jacked up on cheap champagne as Scissor Sisters suggests.   But if you didn't. Shame shame shame on you. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the women in this world who call themselves mothers. Whether biological or not. I have had several over the years. My actual mom is number one, of course, but I have had some surrogates as well. Alice was the mom of

May the Fourth Be With You
Paddycake

In case you didn't notice, last night's quiz was peppered with Star Wars questions and references. Yes, this was intentional. We had a great time at Cedar Creek last night as we did our weekly ritual of drinking alcoholic libations while answering questions. You know what? Nothing interesting has happened to me this week at all, so I don't have a lot to write about. So, we're just going to do a quick recap. Round 1: Anagrams. Everyone did pretty well here, so I was happy. This was probably the easiest round of the night (except for 7, which was a snap for me and most of you as well) Round 2:

I Had a Song Once... Once.
Paddycake

So, songs about singers singing songs sung by singers than sing songs was apparently right up your alley. Scores were very high, and I was glad. The rest of the quiz was pretty good too. Several teams had near perfect scores until the dreaded Round 8 where no one got higher than 10 points. So here’s a quick recap of Monday night’s frivolity for you all to enjoy.   Round 1: What’s All the Hubbub? Wherein we explored 2 syllable internally rhyming words. Highest scores… well it would be easier just to say that PMS, 1912 Titanic Swim Team, and The Awkward Date didn’t quite manage a perfect score.   Round

You Say Herb, I say Herb. Let Us Call The Whole Thing Off.
Paddycake

That joke doesn’t work will in print… oh well. Since yestetday was 4/20 and we had an awesome quiz, with a round on Marijuana, I thought it would be fun to share a little enlightenment about the plant. In addition to be a thousand-year-old sacrament, and practical college right of passage, and just one of the wonderful gifts nature has given us. But, in addition to the fun aspects of marijuana, there is also a practical side that, sadly, gets ignored because of the stigma. Did you know that hemp is the oldest relic of human industry found? A bit of hemp fabric dating back to 8000 BC, to be exact. Hemp seeds contain more essential fatty acids that any other source,

The Creek Was Packed!
Paddycake

It was standing room only last night at The Creek… which is probably a good idea, since creeks are notoriously cold, and usually the subject of horror films. It’s not always creeks though… They usually go a little something like this. Old Man: Don’t go to the creek/house in the woods/woods/old road/campground/lake/river because it is haunted/has maniacs on the loose/poisonous/irradiated/forbidden/off limits/dangerous Group of young idiots: Thanks old man, but we’re gonna do the thing! Group of young idiots arrive at the place. Sensible member of the group: Guys, we shouldn’t do the thing. The old man said it was haunted/has maniacs

I Am Still Waiting For Uptown Funk to Give It To Me
Paddycake

At this point, I think it was all just a tease. I know that has nothing to do with the quiz last night, nor anything that happened before or after it, but it was something that just popped into my head a minute ago, so there you go… SQUIRREL! So, my day job has changed slightly, and I am extraordinarily busy now, which is good, because it makes the day go by faster, but it also makes it difficult to write long witty blogs, so they may be short for a few weeks while I adjust to my new job responsibilities. So here we go with Short Blog #1!!   Highlights of the night: 1)      Yes, the Mayflower went home. 2)
