The Quiz Queen

Well, this is it y’all. No more classes, no more books. Just quizzing all summer long! Yay! Nothing like keeping your brains nice and sharp for next semester with some good ol’ Pub Quiz!    Townie Takeover was the only team to get a perfect score in R2. If only they’d thought to circle their joker! They could have scored a nice fat prize in the end. They also had some pretty sweet Random Knowledge skills. Impressive!   Salt N Peppa was the only team to score 8 points on R3. Nobody else knew that the Pixar lamp short was called "Luxo

Qatar: The Tiny Penis of the Middle East
The Quiz Queen

Guys, wtf. Where did all of you come from? There were so many teams last night that one guy had to leave because he couldn’t find a place to sit. Srsly, it was kinda awesome tbh. We had like five new teams in one night. Is it because y’all are graduating and ready to gtfo? Celebrating your newly-earned brain papers with some booze and questions about stuff you don’t know?    Yeah I said it. You guys sucked at Round 8. The average score was below 8 points, and the lowest score was 3 points by a team I won’t mention because I think they just got out of school at CORNELL GODDAMN UNIVERSITY! HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW

I'm the best Quizmaster. Everyone thinks so. I have the best questions. Nobody's better at Mastering the Quiz than me. If you disagree then you are fake news.
The Quiz Queen

Wow, what an impressive turnout! How did we even fit that many people into lil Kilpatrick’s? Perhaps Kilpatrick’s is like the Room of Requirement, or maybe like those sweet magical tents that they brought to the Quidditch World Cup. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can go straight to hell and never come to my pub quiz again!   I don’t know why I couldn’t remember how to say “irreconcilable.” Maybe it’s because I’ve discovered throughout the last two years as Quizmistress that there are a lot of words I’ve been saying wrong in my head all this time, and I just

The Quiz Queen

Tonight was purdy great y’all! We had some new faces and it was such a full house that I think Julian’s team had to leave for lack of seats! Whoa!    The Fizzy Lifters brought all of their dads. Seriously, it was just a team full of dads until the kiddos showed up!  Team BSE didn’t want to have to spell out Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, but I like that scientific term for Mad Cow Disease.    The Snapes Of Wrath won best team name of the night! Huzzah! That dude also kindly informed

You guys still don't know who Gene Kelly is and I've never been more disappointed in you.
The Quiz Queen

Well you guys, what can I say? Y’all entertained me as usual, yet somehow I’m the one who got paid for it. Hmm.    We had a tie for first place between Julian Is A One-Hole Man and Don’t Come In Last Anne, Dan, Florian, Ian, Derek, and Steph. Both teams were too smart for their own good and kept tying for first throughout most of the Sudden Death tiebreaker. Finally Julian Is A One-Hole Man stepped in and took the lead. Whew!    As I mentioned before, I am now officially an auntie! My niece was born at 4:18

The Quiz Queen

No matter what, y’all end up making me feel so glad to be your Quizmaster!   I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster all day. First I woke up at 5:30 AM because I accidentally forgot to turn off my early morning Monday alarm for Spring Break. So when I got a look at my phone I saw that my sister had texted me! I told her to let me know as soon as her labor starts so that I can arrange for people to cover me at work. She had texted me that her labor would be starting within 24 hours according to certain biological indicators which had happened in the night (which I will not divulge here). Excite!

ARTICHOKE! ARTICHOKE! ARTICHOKE!
The Quiz Queen

YOU GUYS.   Tonight was great and even though I was tired and spacey, y’all stuck with it and laughed at me when I messed up, and what more could a girl ask for than that?   WE HAD A CELEBRITY IN OUR MIDST TONIGHT AND I DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE IT UNTIL THE END!   So in the beginning of the night this gal came up to me and asked for a quiz packet and I pointed her in the right direction. Throughout the night she kept giving me the eye like she knew me or something, and I vaguely recognized her face but chalked it up to that old Ithaca familiarity.

The Quiz Queen

HEY GUYS!    Whoops, didn’t mean to caps lock that but that happened to match my mood for this blog.    I’m in a right state today! I got me two whole hours of sleep last night and I realized I don’t like my day job anymore and it’s all I can really think of. You know that awkward feeling when people who are younger than you are your supervisors and they keep yelling at you for making inappropriate remarks in front of customers? Yeah me too, and I’m fucking over that shit. I’m gonna keep making inappropriate remarks as much as I damn well please, and

Full Moon, Savory Spawn, and Thirsty Quizmasters
The Quiz Queen

Tonight was a night! I said some things and you wrote some things! Somteimes we laughed! Sometimes y’all boo’ed me because of my bad pun skills. But all in all, we did a thing and it was a success!    I think the full moon has been making everyone a little edgy today. I know some of you are like “blah blah blah hippie Ithaca shit, full moons aren’t a thing that affects people.” But I will beg to differ and I will offer some anecdotal evidence! When I was in college I worked at the children’s center on campus and on two different occasions I noticed the children were suddenly particularly emotionally

Please don't kiss your chickens. We really shouldn't have to tell you that.
The Quiz Queen

  It all started when I asked the bartender to surprise me with his favorite Kilpatrick’s dish, which turned out to be the smoked pork shoulder with mashed potatoes and some kind of amazing sweet soda bread. Oh my goodness, I was not expecting that but I loved it! I should order that way every time I go out to eat! I love trying new foods that I would never have thought of getting.    Right off the bat I made friends with a table of folks who had no idea they were about to be in the center of all the action at a good rowdy Pub Quiz! They called themselves Tampa and just had the sweetest

Your Mom's A Bat-Filled Hole
The Quiz Queen

Tonight was a good night! Any time we get to listen to pop covers by the Swedish Chef, you know things are gonna be great.    I don’t really know what to write tonight guys. It was a pretty standard Quiz: totally fun but I didn’t do a whole lot of riffing. I will give a shoutout to Julian Raps Write Songs To Truth Objective Find, who apparently came in first place for the first time tonight! Huzzah!   Maybe I’ll just get a lil personal with you tonight. I’m in a really interesting point in my life right now. I’m working a lot, which I mostly love

Thats "four hundred and eleven" in layman's terms
The Quiz Queen

Whoa nelly, y’all! That was a wild and crazy night! Did we have fun or what?! WOOOOOOT!   When I first arrived on the scene, the place was packed with plebes and I was like “DID THEY CANCEL QUIZ AND NOT TELL ME?!” But no, apparently people really like going out to eat on President’s Day. I walked around to the teams that had found tables to let them know we’d be starting late, and as I walked past a table a kid piped up and said, “Excuse me, could I get some more napkins?” I cheerfully told him, “I am not a waitress!” and walked away. What a dope! At least he was polite!

You guys didn't even bring me chocolates :(
The Quiz Queen

Tonight was a night. We laughed, we cried, and some of you seemed to be way more interested in the basketball game going on above my head (#rude).   I ate more bangers and mash, followed by chips with some creamy white sauce that was inappropriately delicious. I scoffed at a man who threw up his hands in exasperation when I deigned to ask him what a cervix is. EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW WHAT A CERVIX IS YOU PLEBE!    I played 90s music and made weird jokes about your mom having a little white box on the back.    Don’t Come In Last, Anne definitely

Bangers and Mash? I hardly know her!
The Quiz Queen

That’s right y’all, I tried Bangers and Mash for the first time tonight and let me tell ya, I’ll never go back to having just one sausage at a time.    Tonight was awesome, it was great to see a full half of my regular teams come out for some Irish Pub Shenanigans! I had a lot of fun, I kinda like the coziness of a smaller venue. I’m excited to see how many of you make Monday night your regular quiz night!   Sometimes I think about things like Round 1 as if people from that country were playing a quiz round on the US. Would they have questions like “Americans
