Training Potter's Wheels
Vertigo Chuck

I had the most epic dream the other morning. I usually have epic dreams when I am in the middle of my snooze-offs when I decide whether or not I want to bike to work. In this dream, there was a bit of time travel. There was also some causality breaking and a hint of having my dream life go terribly wrong, but if I chase the McGuffin then, slowly but surely, I will piece my life back together and make it better than before. Yeah, sounds a lot like Back to the Future, but I swear it isn't. Since it was a dream, time travel activated by rolling on the beach. I think It had to be an ocean beach. Exactly why there hasn't been any spells of time travel. I haven't been to the ocean in a

Exhuming the Past
Vertigo Chuck

  Writing the blog in advance is difficult. Writing it so far in advance is nearly impossible. I want to make sure that I have a little space to fit in what happened that day at quiz, but maybe not. Here is what happened at the last quiz (apparently my text editor makes clickable links? Strange). There is rumor that our website is going to be changed to reflect the traffic that we get on weekdays, so we will see if the link still works in a year. I would have a camera, but such things weren't invented yet. They are a thing of the future and speculative science fiction. As

All One Can Do
Vertigo Chuck

All One Can Do You know that one Thin Lizzy song? Yeah, there was a group of boys came in and went straight to the jukebox. They found as many versions of that song as they could. They played them back-to-back. It got a little annoying. Maybe a little more than a little annoying. Just for tonight though. It is like my love-hate relationship with Bachmann Turner Overplayed. Hopefully that sentence makes sense in and of itself. It's fun when you actually type out phrases like that. Sometimes it looks really weird with a double "that" or something like "used to." We say it all the time, and it looks so strange typed out like that. So strange.   You will

In the Background
Vertigo Chuck

In the Background The good thing about the blog is that I can write about whatever I want to as long as it loosely reaches back to the night at quiz, and even then it doesn't even have to do that. I guess then I can blog about whatever I feel like. Yep. I'll probably begin by talking about how I missed last week. Last week was a very important week. I have been at the Pub now for 3 years. I don't know how many blogs that makes (approx 150) for the venue, but I was gone for a few months there last year. In the mean time, they renovated the place, bought the tattoo parlor in the back, expanded, put in skee-ball (formerly ski-ball), and now have air conditioning (for those of

Can't All Batmen Get Along?
RESII

Tom Brady's Sweet Sweet Tears were tears of joy as they won first prize. Friends of Larry took second, W&S third, Butte Buddies fourth, and seven other teams also played.   Christian Bale interrupted all types of superheroes in last night round seven, including another actor’s Batman movie (how petty, Mr. Bale). The film in question [eight] was 1989’s Batman. And while its brilliance has not diminished with age, I believe the perception of it has.   Batman was a humungous hit in 1989. I think it set the new standard of superhero movie:

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

Swimmer's Ear and Goosebumps
Vertigo Chuck

Forever and a Day Have you ever had one of those days where you are so tired that you don't know what to blog about? I'm having one of those days. I am working a summer program that is sucking up all of my perfectly good summer vacation. It isn't bad at all though. It is great professional development, it brings in a little bit more money, and it is fun to hang out with the kids. Sometimes I wish though that the days aren't so long though. By the time I have dinner, it is at least 8:00. My bedtime is at 9. That doesn't nearly give me any time to do anything else at all. No LEGO Building. No runs to Dairy Queen or Coldstone. None of that. Just sleep. I can't wait to sleep

Forever and a Day
Vertigo Chuck

There is something to be said about sleeping. It is so relaxing. It makes most of your worries melt away. It also has a way of accentuating those worries. Ever had a nightmare that you go to school with no pants on? Well have you ever made it all the way to school before noticing you have no pants? That seems a little impossible. I mean, there are natural fail-safes like feeling that the seat is cold because you don't have any clothes between your legs and the seat of your car. Maybe you forget how much easier it is to use the bathroom in the morning. Maybe you happened to have no pants on no pants day. That is a real thing in places like NYC. People are strange there. Other nightmares can

An Unusual Sort of Word
Vertigo Chuck

So, apparently we officially have a TV show on SyFy. A network that I used to like until now apparently. I liked it a lot when it was called SciFi, and then they had to pick up WWE or something like that. Anyway, we have a show hosted by Zachary Levi (played Chuck in Chuck. A role model? We are both named Charles, well maybe not any more) with celebrities, and smart people, and smart celebrities. I wonder what it will be like? I wonder if they will plug the quiz as much as the quiz will be plugging them? I will have fliers and everything for most of the public to end up throwing away. I am crazy excited for it. It looks like our kind of quiz show. Check it out next Thursday on SyFy.

________(adjective) than Usual
Vertigo Chuck

I feel like summer is finally here. We aren't getting the spring rainstorms, we aren't getting the spring fever, we aren't even getting the spring cleaning. Well maybe I am a little bit, but I feel like I'm always cleaning. I'm having a fun time working on curriculum for the next three weeks. I'm teaching a few kids robotics. It is going to be fun, but a lot of work for me. I'm not a work-a-holic, but I seem to be acting like one this summer. Like most people during the end-of-the-year holidays. There are just endless parties, but it isn't like you party that hard all the time amirite? It doesn't seem like you could call it binging, but I guess it probably is. Binge partying is all the rage

On an Even Keel
Vertigo Chuck

Air conditioning is the best invention to ever hit the market in summer. It is practically better than Water World. In the building that I'm working in over the summer, there is pretty much no air conditioning. There probably is, but I am convinced that the temperature difference between here and outside is just because the building insides are in the shade. Air conditioning takes away all of that nasty humidity that is outside. It is way to wet to do anything right now. I'd rather be cold and wear a jacket than be hot without anything I can do about it.   I keep on finding cat hair everywhere. It is probably related to the heat. I don't know where they come from (probably

Too Close to Call
Vertigo Chuck

There is something to be said about trapeze artists. They fly through the air without a care in the world. Actually they probably have a lot of cares. I wonder how many times they think to themselves,"please don't fall," or, "make sure to catch me." I personally don't know any of them to ask. If any of you know of a trapeze artist, please ask them those simple questions that they probably hear all the time. Speaking of something you don't hear very often any more, "do you want fries with that?" Have you ever heard that recently at any kind of fast food place? I certainly haven't. It's usually "what can we make for you today" to try to convince you that their ingredients are fresh. I tell you

There is always something about drinking beer when you are anxious that makes your brain go a million miles an hour without stopping anywhere. I was totally nervous about buying a new car. Would the one that I'm looking at be on the lot still tomorrow? Is it really the car that I want? Is it really the color that I want? Am I sure I don't want the yellow one? Yes. Even though it has all the extra features? Yes. I finally upped and bought one today. I am a card-holding car owner now. Fear my wrath, and watch me drive 3 miles away from any obstacle. Maybe 4. Yeah 4. I'm not going to post a picture on here because I decided to. I'm not going to tell you what it is either for the same reason.   Next

Inside Information
Vertigo Chuck

School's out for summer. Not the song, but the statement since yesterday really was my last day of school. Granted it was a teacher work day with very few students, it was still a day of work. I celebrated at the bar with friends. That is always a good way to celebrate. Afterword, I got fro-yo. There is this Yogurtland on Grant and Speer that is open until 11pm. It is right next to the Cosmo's that is also open crazy late. The only thing better than drinking with friends is fro-yo with friends. One of my students was confused when I talked about fro-yo. He didn't know what it was. Poor guy was the odd one out when it came to fro-yo. All of his friends knew. Thus ends my frozen yogurt story.   Got

The other completely unrelated team is The Friend of my Enemy is Friends of Larry. That name is initially convoluted. Let me simplify it for you. Larry is friends with my enemy.

Perpetually Late
Vertigo Chuck

There is something to be said about spring cleaning. You get to open up your living space and take away garbage that you had been promising yourself that you would get rid of for a long time. Maybe you only promised for a little bit of time, but you still need to get rid of it. This is the day that you really appreciate when the trash truck comes to pick up your refuse, whatever weekday that is. Perhaps you are "smarter" and take all of that corrugated cardboard from GWD supply boxes to the recycle center. Don't forget those CFLs. Take those to a hardware store. I know you can recycle the FLs there, but I wonder if you can recycle the CFLs
