Sassenach
Jessica

You may not be from around here, but around here we abide by a little thing I call honor.  Honor and a wee thing, this bonnie lass calls a PA system.  Tis a bright day on the 6th when you can hear the 7th better than a piece of s**t.  So to honor the sound we’ll bring heads of cattle down,  From hill and dale ‘til the valley swalle.  When you hear the Viol play, don’t forget to sway.  Your skirts may be bouncing now, because of that great sound.   We had a bonne time, the 3 Musketeers et al.  They

The Mighty Black Bellied Whistling Duck
Jessica

The black bellied whistling duck actually nests in trees.  High up!  About 25 feet off the ground.  When the ducklings hatch, the mother duck pushes them out of the next, confident that their little duckling bones are rubbery enough to bounce instead of break.  You can see these ducks around Austin right now.  They have a chestnut body and bright pink bill and legs.  Just watch out for your head as the ducklings begin hatching this week. In other less relevant news… WE GOT A PA SYSTEM!  Now you can hear the dulcet tones of my crackling voice from an elevated speaker.  Not

Geeks Who Kart
Bryan (also named Bort)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is out and I am spent, y’all. I have dedicated several blogs to how much I love my Nintendo Switch. It’s the perfect mix of portable and home console and I never want to let it go. Mario Kart 8 (my favorite Mario Kart game) was just re-released on the Nintendo Switch, and I can say, without a doubt, that I am happy that I plunked down another $60 to double dip on this bad boy. Today, during my lunch break at work, I killed 20 minutes racing through one of the 150cc cups. Tomorrow, one of

Geeks Who Speed Date
Bryan (also named Bort)

We have our lovely bachelors, Hologram Deniers, ready to go for the beginning of quiz, waiting to meet their Perfect Geeks Who Drink Match. First up, we had Geeks Bachelor Team Number 1, Impala 67. For Rounds 1, 2 and 3, there was a 15 point difference in their totals. The two teams seemed to enjoy each other’s company until Impala 67 was tagged out in favor of Geeks Bachelor Team Number 2… The Weasel! The Weasel came in, had

An intimate quiz
Jessica

You ever have one of those days.  I’ll admit it was a mother of all Mondays.  I was under deadline that morning when my power went out.  So I drove to Thunderbird only to find there was no room.  Then I drove to Central market thinking I’d work in the cafe only to find they have covered up all the power outlets.  I walk back to my car only to find some mini-cooper has parked me in.  There were three inches between the car and my driver side door.  I was about to dump my coffee on the windshield when I noticed the driver was sitting in the driver seat.  So instead I knocked and she was happy to move her car.

Bespoke quiz
Jessica

Hey friends, you are smart, beautiful and charming nerds.  We won’t listen to any quiz question that implies otherwise.  Knowing a lot about World of Warcraft just means that you have a healthy respect for the content of the zeitgeist.  Not that we need to call the hikikomori hotline.   The discussion of brothels continued.  We learned that Roppolo’s keeps good company as a former brothel.  The Claypit was also a brothel and boasted an underground tunnel that connected it to the Texas Capitol.  This raises the question, if I were a John or Jane back in the day,

I am Cabaret
Jessica

              Unfortunately Alan Cummings didn’t show up.  Either he didn’t get my snapchat, or he has better things to do.  I like to think he’s playing coy and will eventually show up rouged nipples and all.  Don’t tell mama we were doing trivia in a brothel.  While it might be March Madness outside, inside we were busy being Italian.                  We had two teams tonight.  The Congregation was a lovely family visiting from Pasadena.  I tried to recommend Mickelthwait

First
Jessica

                There’s no time like the first time.  What a venue Roppolo’s is!  Did you know it used to be a Brothel!? That would explain the feeling in my… brain.  Tucked in the back of this old stone building is the speakeasy of GWD.  Go upstairs before you get to the restrooms and you will find an utterly delightful brothel, I mean patio for pub quiz.               Which reminds me, I got a slice of Hawaiian pizza which is a coincidence.  Last night I had a dream that I was eating dinner and trying
