I Knew Those Kids
Quizler

Well, that was interesting? Did you miss it? Too bad because you missed the best quiz night ever. At least for me it was the most memorable. I finally got my dream of an attentive quiet audience and I had to say something I didn’t want anyone to hear.  Let’s talk about you guys though. Mic Drop and Ima Let You had a great sudden death, tying a second time with different correct answers. They both got an almost perfect round 2 but only Ima Let You used their joker on that round! Which means Mic Drop kinda killed it except for being dumb enough to waste the joker.

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.

If You Can Hear My Voice...
Quizler

Another night with a lively crowd! On Thursday mornings I always sound like an old diner waitress. It’s rough but I appreciate you guys all coming out and having a good time. No Fetus dominated tonight but There is No Team! actually beat them on round 8 and were the only team to get all the visuals. If those teams mixed it up a bit they’d be unstoppable. Whiskey Tango is that one team to watch out for because when they have the right numbers and remember to joker they are always ranked high.  When I took an international flight this winter I watched about 217 movies that I mostly forgot about.

Let's Get Loud!
Quizler

What a great crowd tonight, guys! It must be the weather opening you all up after a long winter but it seemed like everyone sure had fun. Shake it Off stayed on top all night thanks to a joker in a 15 point round 2—nice work! Psychos had 14 in round 2 but had to dance to come in second thanks to Mojo Hojo’s solid night. The latter would’ve had it if they’d used their joker in round 2. Life is rough. The dance off was pretty great, though and you all had your say for the winners, but we know you were biased. Good work to both teams. I knew a guy in college who’s nickname was “Cap”

Just the Regulars
Quizler

Happy Earth Day, y’all! I saw a man flick his cigarette out of his car today and almost lost my shit. Most days I would lose my shit anyway but it’s just especially bad on Earth Day. C’mon! It seems like a lot of people were out celebrating tonight. We had a great group at the Stone Church though. It’s going to be sad next week without Jaime but maybe the rest of you will have a better chance of winning. She was always on top of those Babysitter Club questions and old song questions. We’ll miss you, Jaime! Congrats to So Hard and Mojo Hojo for both scoring over 80 points to tie and then killing the sudden death round.

Hercules, Hercules!
Quizler

Are you guys sad that you missed a wild Tuesday night at the Stone Church with Chris Christie? I shook his hand and spoke with his wife. I told her I was the quizmaster here and she said, “you entertain people?” all surprised-like. Yes, ma’am! This is how I make my living so please tell your husband not to repeal Obamacare!  You know how when you’re traveling, people are always asking where you’re from? I like to just say the first place that comes to mind, hoping they don’t know much about it so I don’t get caught, but if I do get caught it’s not a big deal because they’re strangers. In December I was

I Would Absolutely Call My Country a Count
Quizler

Ok so it’s snowing but not the good kind of soft, dry snow that you can blow off your car with a light breath. The kind that, no matter which direction you’re facing, is always in your face and under your hood and so so wet that the tops of your boots soak through to your socks. It seems like we had only good snow this winter until now. But I have to say it’s nice to see the snow again. I feel a bit like I have Stockholm syndrome but I do love the snow and I’m worried that next year we won’t get any so we have to appreciate it while we have it. Thanks for braving it tonight to come out and have some quiz fun with me! The game didn’t have too much

I love Portuguese People. Some of My Best Friends are Portuguese!

What a fun night! We had quite the rambunctious sing-a-long and no crazy bar activities to hold us back. So Hard got on top with their perfect round 2 and stayed there all night.  Mojo Hojo took and with a a later joke but if our returning champs, Rick Astley had waited to joker round 8 they would’ve had 2nd in the bag. That’s the way it always goes though.  There are a lot of cop shows out there but the only one I watch is “Castle” and I’ve stopped liking it. I watch it while I prepare for this quiz actually because it doesn’t require much attention. “Bob’s
