Caught in a Landslide No Escape from Reality
Quizler

Great crowd tonight, guys. Do you think that was out only 90 degree day of the summer? You never know with el nino, ya know? Well, we spent it well together tonight. Sorry about the sweating, though. Congrats to Takoyaki for winning by one point. They made the right decision somewhere. I think that right decision was in using their joker in round 2, where they scored higher than anyone else. Rio de Venereal was only a point behind and they were only one of two teams to joker in round 8, which was a good move on their part. They were also the only team to get a perfect round 3. Good job with the handwriting! Kayla’s

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

I'm Asleep Right Now
Quizler

Holy jet lag, batman! I haven’t been awake past 9 since I returned to the States Friday night. You’d think I’d be able to wake up bright eyed and whatnot after going to sleep so early but that has not been the case. Why, time change, why? I heard China has one time zone. Is that the most insane thing you’ve ever heard? People have to go to work in pitch black all day on one side of the country. Or maybe they’re all farmers and don’t care what time it is? Maybe I should do more research. Thanks for coming out tonight and I guess congrajuation to several of our teams who seem to have graduated from UNH. Good luck out there, and

Beware the Chocolate Dragon in Dark Souls

Good afternoon everyone, my apologies for not getting the blog out last night but I just wasn't feeling as motivated as Sarah usually is.  Thanks again to everyone for putting up with me last night.  It had been over a year and half since I'd hosted I believe so it took me a bit to get back into the flow but I think it went ok.  The quiz went a little long, finishing around 9:15.  Which is actually short for me.  When I hosted the quiz routinely went till around 9:30.  I have no idea how Sarah gets it down to 2 hours or less.  Seriously I was grading as fast as I could and not taking any extended breaks.  She's just a natural I guess. Ok onto

Congratulations to Happy National Star Trek Day for having a great team name and totally killing it all night. Congrats as well to Something You Wouldn’t Understand and Juicy Garbage Porn for a good effort in a tie for second, but in the end Mono Free knew better math, or better Tony stats; I’m not sure which. Do you guys want to hear about the 90s concert I went to last week? It was incredible. It started with a gaggle of women in their 40s and 50s wearing overalls and homemade t-shirts, and scrunchies with leopard print. Oh and Denim. So much wonderful denim. Then there was Ton Loc

You guys, I had a lot of fun tonight. Did you? Yes you did. You got a Disney question and you got some balls jokes. I Know you over it. The best wrong answers of the night go to I Can’t Say That Out Loud for “John Tucker Must Die” because that is one of my favorite hottie movies. Swoon for Miguel from Passions, right?! And to Return of the Losebians for “B’nai B’rith” because obviously, that is not a religion, but hilar nonetheless. And to Franks Little Beauties for the Prince song “Superman.” So fucking close.

Hi guys. Thank you for coming out and being a good crowd and answering the questions in a straightforward manner. But I’ve been doing this for coming on three years now and I’m getting bored with your correct answers. Please give me a little more humor next time. I mean, I just lay them out for you and you don’t even pick them up. Like, so many of you didn’t even guess at your mom’s longest bone. If you don’t even have a wrong answer, why can’t you put something hilarious? Maybe I’m biased because humor comes so easily to me. I’m just the funniest person you know, I guess. Lucky you.
