Swooping In Late
Jam Sammich

Seriously... Shows up just for Round 8, draws his own joker to circle, throws some jokes in his answers, and still manages to snag 2nd-to-last place's pitcher of beer.   I've chosen wisely. :)   We had a fun one over at Celtic Club as six teams joined us for all the frivolity that quiz has to offer. We had a video round on stoner movie moments, an audio round that highlighted secrets, and no night would be complete without our Random Knowledge round to bring it all together.   After traversing all eight rounds, here's how the stats drifted:

The Round Numbers Shouldn't Necessarily Coincide With Drinks Consumed...
Jam Sammich

I'm all about Thirsty Thursday 'n all -- I mean, I did attend Wazzu (Go Cougs!) -- but turning our find quiz into a drinking game could be a bit steep of an order for a weeknight.   Unless you're in the service industry... Then have at it!   We had a fun one over at The CC as five teams decided to not ignore my booming voice and play eight glorious rounds, ranging from a posthumous video round, to a Sean Bean feature, and finally capped our night off with a Random Knowledge round.   After all eight were done, here's how the dust settled:

Torrential Rain, Roaring Thunder, and a Thursday Quiz!
Jam Sammich

Yesterday in the day time was gorgeous -- perfectly sunny, slightly warm, and just enough to require sunglasses on the drive in. Being on the heels of a beautiful Wednesday that reminded us Seattlites that we do indeed know how to pack every outdoor patio ever, the quick and semi-violent change in weather was unexpected and frankly really awesome. Loud, rousing thunder boomed and shook the Kent area later in the day, punctuated by bright flashes of lightening and flickers of power going in and out in the area.   Alongside all that, the rain was epic. Something I really enjoy is massively committed rainfall -- not half-assed sprinkles,

Movin' On Up
Jam Sammich

Hooray for promotions, moving, and other things that determine progress. It's good to have conversations on people getting to better places, and helping others see that for themselves as well.   Yay things :)   We had a fun time over at Celtic Club as three teams joined up for rivalries, internet fame... And in reality free drinks. We covered rounds on things such as songs with an air of finality, a video round showing some interesting job interviews, and of course no night would be complete without our Random Knowledge round.   After we made it through all eight, here's how the statistical dust settled:

Awkward Conversations With Grandma
Jam Sammich

I like to think, as a somewhat awkward-aware person, I maintain a fun aspect to me being awkward on occasion. Sure, we've all got our tendencies to be a bit weird (I mean, c'mon -- I'll get all excited over data & spreadsheets, can flood you with an insane amount of puns, and then still yell "Qapla'!" at my victories), but being in a job with "Geek" in the company name adds a certain element that favors this weirdness.   Tonight, though? Was not intending to read a round on sex terminology in front of a 29th birthday where the birthday girl had her grandparents in attendance. It did, however, lead to a rousing conversation with a different team who wanted

Jam Sammich

Aww, I missed you guys. Thanks loads to Gretchen for covering for me last week as I covered the varied and wonderful world of options trading!   It... was an experience to say the least. If anything, I'm happy to be back kickin' it with you guys as we get into the final stretch of Lent, and barrel on head first into Easter! Bring on those bunnies and eggs...   What a Thursday!! Five teams joined for quiz to duke it out over eight glorious rounds filled with questions on such items as famous people and their ages, a video round of epic montages, and no night would be complete without a Random Knowledge round to cap off the

Quiztastic Version of Musical Chairs!
Rottie of Weiler

Yesterday I had the great honor of getting to run the quiz at the Celtic Club. We played team musical chairs as teams left early and came in late. We had quite the competition last night as teams jockeyed back and forth for higher rankings. F@ck All Y'all held steady in first for most of the night but at the last second I Miss Katie slid passed them and snatched the title. It was quite an upset and made for a very competitive quiz. It was pandemonium as teams shoved each other aside, gaining and losing leads one point at a time. Overall the Celtic Club quizers rocked it. They knocked it out of the park when it came to guessing movies in our video round

Crystal [Meth] Light
Jam Sammich

In being the good ol' practicing Catholic I am, I decided this year for Lent I'd give up alcohol. That's right, I work for a company that has "Drink" in it's name, but I'm not.   It's been interesting, for sure. Now, I order iced coffees, pop, or simply water instead. This quiz night was special, though, as our trusty bartender had some squeezable Crystal Light water enhancer. I got to have fun fruity version of my water all night long, thanks to his generosity... Except when I let him manage my CL-level...   It was. So. Sweet.   But it's not too bad, once I sucked it down a smidge and added more and more water.

And Tehran, Tehran So Far Away...
Jam Sammich

So. Many. Bros.   Okay, well it being March Madness and all, it wasn't that many bros. Just three pro-bros -- you know the type, shooting back whiskey on the rocks between Rainiers, button down shirt sleeved messily half-rolled or pushed up, ties loosened, and pants hiked up a slight bit while they manspread, which showcases their nice dress shoes topped by some erratically-colored and patterned dress socks. Yelling so loudly, it's as if their team could hear them encoraging or calling plays to them.    Seriously, so loud. I was happy to see the 'Zags defend their 1st place spot thus far, though (yay local school

Drinking Practice
Jam Sammich

Ah, St. Patrick's Day Eve. Interestingly enough, it seems that my quiz since we started over at The Celtic Club has been on the eve of all the holidays since November. Well, of course except Thanksgiving because... Yeah. It's been interesting to see the fluttering in and out of teams, though, depending on the holiday at hand.   Either way, last night was a good as two (and momentarily three) teams joined us for quizzery goodness! We covered rounds that made you rethink the Billboard Hot 100 #1s list, a video round challenging on on which city or state different movies and TV shows were set in, and no night could be complete without our Random Knowledge round.   After

The Awkwardness in Saying, "GOOD WORK" to the Parents of a Rad Adult
Jam Sammich

When you reach a comfortable spot with your bar, it's nice to know they've got your back. Last night was a hilarious representation of this. Occasionally, my parents/family will come out to play quiz. They'll sit up front, heckle, joke around, and so on. Well, last night there was a somewhat shady character hanging around the stage where I was hosting. He seemed to be waiting, so I politely asked between questions if he needed anything or had a question. The man struggled with his words a bit, in which I think he'd had a touch too many. He held out his fist, I bumped it, and he smiled and I walked back to my table to read the next question. When I did that and would alternate in turning

Cause Sometimes I'm Up, and Sometimes I Fall Down
Jam Sammich

So fun little prelude to how quiz went this week: I'm not a graceful person. Sure, I wear stilettos, and I can handle myself pretty well in them, might I add... But, you know, my name's not "Grace" for a reason. I trip, fall, stumble, shuffle, and so on.    For the fun and exciting injury this week, let's see how things unfolded at the CrossFit gym. I've been crossfitting (is that a verb? Yeah, good enough) for about nine weeks now, and loving it. I lift heavy things, put them down, and am getting in pretty awesome shape to boot! Well, one thing I've been working on mastering is higher-level box jumps. I started in the 1st week jumping on a 16" box

You're Just Jealous 'Cause You Can Word!
Jam Sammich

If last night was any proof, a good quiz and some Irish Mule cocktails on tap can turn around any night...   Especially when that night's speckled with carbo-loading drunkenness (seriously, my body couldn't handle all that amazing mac and cheese), the varied pronunciations and meanings of "wangs," snarky comments on how my pictures from visiting Turkey were not sided with cranberries nor stuffing, crude mentions involving Cappadoccia, and the following pronunciation guide to teach you to speak like an east-coaster (read with a drawl for full effect):   M R Ducks M R Not O S A R C M Wangs L

I'm Not As Think As You Winning I Am

Per usual, we had a fun one over at Celtic Club as four teams joined us for all the quizzery goodness. We coveried a variety of rounds that challenged us on charaters played by different actors, a whole round dedicated to Franz Schubert, and no night would be complete without our Random Knowledge round to cap it all off. Special thanks and kudos et al to the lovely Gretchen for peeking out from under my wing to grace us with a few celebrity hosted rounds throughout the night as well!   After we trodded our way through all eight, here's how the stats dust settled:

Things We Didn't Need to Know About Ricky Martin

Honestly, though... Who shares with a magazine that they're in to golden showers??   We had a fun one in the corner over at Celtic Club as three glorious teams joined us for quizzery goodness, featuring rounds on watersports (and water and sports), and awesome before and after round that had you pairing celebrities with famous venues, and no night could be capped off without our Random Knowledge round.   After all eight were done, here's how the dust settled:
