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.

Quizmaster still thirsty over here.
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

Who TF Is Mary Tyler Moore?
The Quiz Queen

Wow, what a great lil turnout for a first-time Pub Quiz, y’all! Thanks so much for coming out and having fun with me. I loved seeing some familiar faces and some new ones as well. I think this is gonna be a fun venue, and let me just say HELL YES to the food. HELL YES.   Despite my struggles with Bonus Questions, and my mouth fumbles, y’all held in purdy good there and got some good scores. Remember that one round where none of us knew who the hell the round was about? Yeah neither do I, moving on.   Round 6 was less about sex than I wanted it to be. That’s the proper usage of
