Hephaestus is my Homeboy
VoldeMartini

Happy Wednesday, folks!  Last night we had our Quiz For A Cause, and thank you to everyone who donated. You guys are rockstars. Ya’ll raised $85.00 for Planned Parenthood last night, so thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! Now, for those of you who didn’t… It’s cool. But you really should look into making some kind of contribution online. Every little bit helps. We had a special guest last night, David, who was training with us. Don’t worry guys, I’m not going anywhere. David did a great job last night, and you guys seemed to like him. But not too much, because then I’d be worried you’d leave me. And

Don't Eat The Big White Mint
VoldeMartini

For New Year’s last year (this year? Last Year? It was the 2016 Conversion…) I went to New Orleans. Just because. Well, not just because. It was A New Year’s Celebration in a different city. Very exciting. Except that it torrentially stormed the whole time. That’s alright though; I’ve seen enough fireworks to be satisfied for a while. But that’s not what this story is about. We had a clip from ‘Road House’ last night as one of our Round 7 answers. Keep that in mind. I left on a Sunday to come home at about 4 in the morning. I was ready to be home, and wanted to get on the road. Thing is, I didn’t go to bed until

Who Still Writes Checks?
VoldeMartini

I have folks come into my day job with no idea how to fill out a check. I think I learned how to do this in the Fourth Grade, which is weird. Why would you need to teach a bunch of 8 year olds how to handle money? Just let us go play! And of course, this was the only real world skill I learned while in school. Well, other than “if it’s a male interviewer, just lean forward a bit”. That doesn’t work, by the way. You’ll just seem like an HR nightmare waiting to happen. Unless… the interview is for an HR position, and you are showing what NOT to do during an interview because it would be an HR nightmare. Well, well, well. How the tables

Count Yusopov's pajamas! Comrade, buy the pair!
VoldeMartini

I don’t think I ever get used to Daylight Savings. It’s weird to me to leave for quiz when it’s daylight out. I am a nocturnal being, and the fact that my legs can blind any mere mortal is evidence of that. SPF 150, or bust. We had a round all about the Russian Revolution last night. Here is what I know about the Russian Revolution. It was started by a magical talisman held by Rasputin/Christopher Lloyd. He was aided by a talking bat. There was a lot of singing and dancing. MAGIC. A LOT OF MAGIC. And minions. Glowing magic dancing minions. Olga, Tatiana, and Marie survived the first attack of bullets from their Bolshevik captors,

At Least I Didn't Think I Was A Civil War Soldier This Time
VoldeMartini

So, there I am, getting ready to Emcee the biggest 4th grade play the world has ever seen. This is The Nutcracker, MacBeth, and Christmas at the O.K Corral all rolled into one big huge shebang. And where better to have it, than at the LDS Stake Center? Large gym, big stage. It was gonna be great. The kids are getting ready, prancing around in their costumes, little Teddy has already peed himself, and Amy has thrown up Nerds and Fruit Loops from snack time. It’s alright. We have some extra costumes in the basement, so I make the trek down there. The only way to get to the basement is to go to the loading dock behind the building, and

That Prom Queen Sure Is a Poplar Birch
VoldeMartini

Kissing in the rain was the theme of our visual round last night. Sure, in the movies it seems like great fun, but I will tell you this. It is not. Not by a long shot. It’s most likely cold. So you’re uncomfortable. Plus, you’re all wet. Which is also uncomfortable. When kissing in the rain, you not only have to try to avoid getting excess water in your mouth, but you’ve also got hair plastered to your face and your partners face. Plus the water that will get in your nose just makes it painful. And no one likes a painful makeout sesh. … Almost no one. Plus, you have to conveniently be with your partner when it is

The Zane Train Has Arrived
VoldeMartini

Fun fact, I went to Seattle for a little thing called Geek Bowl. You probably heard me mention it once in passing. At least some of you did, because you were totally there too. And some of you… TOTALLY BAILED AND I AM SO UPSET. I don’t make it a habit of using ride sharing, because I usually don’t go anywhere, and if I do, I take myself. Also, I don’t like talking to strangers, and that’s kind of hard to do when participating in Uber services. I also tend to get car sick easily, so I prefer my own driving “skills”. I used it a lot when I was in Seattle, because it was cold, and wet, and I wasn’t about to walk my happy ass all

Here’s A Look At A Child
VoldeMartini

I am the worst at getting ready for a trip. Seriously. I leave to get on a flight for Seattle on less than 24 hours, and I haven’t packed a dang thing. Instead of a Tooth Fairy, I need a fairy godmother that will just magically pack my stuff, make sure that I’ve got everything, and get me to the airport on time. Hell, not even the airport. Use that wand for something good, G-Ma, and teleport me where I need to go. That way, I don’t have to take off my shoes at the checkpoint. And I also won’t have to deal with smelly people sitting next to me on the plane. I have a lot of grievances about planes, and I’m not just talking about the airline

Internal Combustion, The Ultimate Accessory.
VoldeMartini

Man, oh man, do I love To Wong Foo. Firstly, I am crazy for Swayze. 1000%. I saw this movie for the first time with my mom and older sister, so I think I was probably 8 or 9. Of course, there are aspects that I didn’t quite understand. Officer Dollard finding what was under Miss Vida’s dress, for one. I knew that was a no-no zone, but at that age, I hadn’t worked out the logistics of the anatomical difference between men and women. So, “get your hand off my dick, buddy” didn’t make a lot of sense to me. Plus, John Leguizamo was Luigi, and I thought he was funny in a dress. To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar will be one

"Bon chance, mes amis," no one says...
VoldeMartini

Theater folk have a lot of superstitions. Don’t say this, don’t do that, do this but do it in this particular way or you will most likely fall off the stage and get eaten by alligators that are in the moat we put up this morning because someone did this one particular thing that we told them specifically not to do. I spent a large part of my time in the theater. High School, College, and various jobs throughout the years. I know a thing or two about theater superstitions, and I’m going to share them with you! AN: May not be actually historically/culturally accurate We do not say ‘MacBeth’ on the stage. The reasoning for this is MacBeth

Gods, Monsters, And a PonyBoy
VoldeMartini

Distorted audio rounds are slowly becoming my favorite kinds of rounds. I get to look over the crowd, faces screwed up in concentration, as they try and decipher the garbled mess we have presented them with. It’s good to be the king. I read Bridge to Terabithia when I was a kid, and I didn’t really remember anything about it. Which is probably because it was almost 20 years ago, and I read a lot as a kid. Not having friends when you are in elementary school will do that to ya. In any case, the movie came out quite a bit later, and I watched it on Netflix/Hulu/HBO or whatever streaming service it was on, and was confused. I knew Leslie dies at the end, but I didn’t

But Who Lost To The Cow?
VoldeMartini

There’s a church around the corner from my house that usually has pretty boring signs. But occasionally, they put up fun little quotes that I like to try and understand. “The Bible is a Love Letter from God” was one of my favorites. Now, I have never received a love letter, as this is the day and age of Dick Pics, and I sell them for 30 bucks to various adult sites. But if I received a love letter that was in the style of the Bible, I would be very, very concerned about the mental health of the sender. This week’s sign, however, told me “To Love My Neighbor as I Love Myself”. Which, is a dangerous road because some days, I wouldn’t

The Sleep Deprivation is Real
VoldeMartini

Most people sleep better with the rain. They have rain sound machines, and listen to the rain on their windows. Not me. I get annoyed. Especially if it isn’t a continuous rain. Heavy, then light, then whoops, lets pick it back up. STICK WITH THE RHYTHM WEATHER.  So in two days, I have had about 5 hours of sleep. I’m tempted to push the boundaries, but I also have to drive at some point… For those who braved the weather last night, you guys are awesome. We have a great time, and I got to use the word ‘diphthong’. Which is fine with me. If I get to make a your mom comment, I am happy. We had a round where you needed to give me the food

Romeo and Julieting
VoldeMartini

I guess what would be when you fall in love with someone you just met, and decide to tell your families to shove off because "I KNOW I JUST MET HIM DAD BUT HE'S THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!" I'm assuming you also bite each other's thumbs, and make nurses do your dirty work. If there’s one thing I don’t understand, it’s Modern Art. I just can’t see how throwing paint on a canvas can be worth thousands of dollars. Maybe it’s just because I buy all of my art from Hobby Lobby, BUT ONLY WHEN THEY HAVE HALF OFF DÉCOR SALES. Also, all of the wall art I have in my house is dog related. I know what I like, and it’s that damn bulldog playing a saxophone. Get

Unrealistic Expectations for 2017
VoldeMartini

I don’t do the New Year’s Resolution thing. I also don’t understand that New Year, New Me thing. I figure, I’m going to do the same terrible things I did the year before, so why change? Here is the list of my totally unrealistic New Year’s Resolutions. Lose 327 pounds. Sure, that will make me technically non-existent. But that thigh gap though. None of my body will be touching any part of my other body, because I will have imploded like a white dwarf. Travel more. And by more, I mean more than anyone else has traveled. To Neptune. Conquer a foreign nation/place. As I will be trying to travel to Neptune,
