A Sub for All Seasons
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello new friends! As you know, Johanna was out last night, and I got the privilege to step in as your sub. Frist of all, thank you guys for braving the “blizzard” and coming out to play with us. Second, I can honestly say, last night’s quiz was kind of a trip, thanks to young Joshua and his band of Anthonys. Sincerely, I want to thank you for providing the entertainment last night. Listen, I know some Quizmasters/mistresses may not really enjoy that one guy who doesn’t get cut off by his friends, but I think we had a pretty good time. You were funny, had an accent, and probably don’t even remember that we had a quiz last night. I like you, you’re all right.   Outside

It's Fifty Percent Drinking Game and Fifty Percent Life-Size Candy Land
Johnna

Welcome back, I hope you all got to take some time off and sufficiently stuff your faces last week. I certainly did. But do you know who didn’t get time off? My liver. My friends and I have a tradition of playing a certain drinking game from a TV show that I used to be obsessed with, but not so much anymore. If you can tell me the name of that game, I will let you choose one song to add to my trivia playlist. Just one, stop asking. Here are your hints: The show focuses on a quirky girl and her roommates. They live in a sunny place. There is a cat named Ferguson. Fancy Man is my least favorite boyfriend. So here’s what went down tonight. We had a few regulars and a few newbies

"Thy waist is like a heap of wheat set about with lillies." -Solomon
Johnna

I can’t be trusted around liquids. I just can’t. Twice I nearly knocked over my amazing grown-up sippy cup with a low center of gravity. Which means that I would have most certainly spilled another beer. God help me, I have a problem. Speaking of God, that question about the Song of Songs brought up some really “fun” memories for me. I was raised real religious and have vivid memories of attending a conference one summer on that specific book of the ol’ Bible. I learned things like raisins are an aphrodisiac, deer can be used as a metaphor for boobs, and that your squad will definitely look down on you if you have a tan from working in the fields. Good times.  Speaking

This Week In Amazing Woman and the Amazing Things They've Done...
Johnna

I didn’t spill anything this week. Not a thing! Well except a few tears for America. But seriously, thanks Sonya for hooking me up with a grown-up sippy cup. I’ve never felt so understood in my life. I think we all learned a lot tonight. I for one learned that Stephen Curry is especially good at three-pointers, you need a telescope to find Uranus, and Julia Child made shark repellent when she wasn’t making beef bourguignon. I looked it up, it’s true. It seems Navy men were being stranded and eaten out of the water on the regular and Julia Child couldn’t accept that! She got to work and made a concoction in her bathtub of copper acetate and dye that

In Loving Memory
Johnna

MacBook December 15th, 2010 ~ October 4th, 2016 MacBook passed suddenly from this life at 10:15pm surrounded by drunken friends and strangers.   MacBook began his life as a gift from Johnna’s parents for her college graduation and quickly became an integral and important part of her daily life. He enjoyed many things including watching Parks and Rec with Johnna before bed, storing pictures that wouldn’t fit on Johnna’s phone, and of course, running the technical side of quiz night at Georgetown Liquor Company. MacBook is joined in heaven by Johnna’s iPhone, who passed due to drowning in a pool of water Johnna spilled

The Corpse Bride has a name, y'know.
Johnna

Halloween is almost upon us! I mentioned to some of my students the other day that I might be the Hamburglar for our school’s Halloween Masquerade Ball and was met with very blank expressions. I guess he’s not really a thing anymore? I just looked him up and they gave him a makeover last year, but it didn’t go over very well. He was supposed to be a hunky hipster with an Instagram worthy obsession with sirloin burgers. He instead came off as a disturbed guy trying to hide his hamburger hoarding tendencies from his wife and kids. Better luck to all of you on finding pop culture references that are still relevant to small children. It was a close game tonight, guys.

Nightmare on Airport (Way) Street
Johnna

Maybe I’ve been listening to too many true crime podcasts lately or maybe it’s the new Halloween décor at the GLC, but last night I couldn’t shake the feeling that someone wanted me dead. It began during Round 3, the round where you guessed if all members of a group were dead or alive. Of course, I was expecting to see the word dead quite a bit while grading that one, but one team went above and beyond. As I worked my way down their answers, I noted that the handwriting was getting sloppier. When I got to question 6, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. Their answer was suddenly spelled DED and in all caps. By Question number 8, it was a hardly legible scrawl. Sure

Touched for the Very First Time
Elise

Last night I had my Geeks Who Drink QuizMaster cherry popped! It was magical. From friendly regulars and bartenders, to inquisitive newbie quizzers, to a possessed mic that turned on me with what can only be described as the squealy-skrawly-feedback-of-doom, and an Excel application that refused to work... the night was a memorable one with much bantering, laughter and learning throughout. The lovely Johnna, their usual QM hostess with the mostest and bum-saver-extraordinaire, welcomed me in to Georgetown Liquor Company. It was a chill scene with even chiller patrons. Johnna was super friendly and helpful in showing

Amanda, are you reading this?
Johnna

The moment I read the question about Amanda Knox's new Netflix documentary, I knew what I'd be writing about. I've been obsessed with her story since my friend Pauline and I listened to her memoir while on a road trip across the country. By the end of the book, I was completely convinced of her innocence. Pauline, however, was totally sure of her guilt. My memories of the last few days of that trip are a blur of raised voices, dramatic hand gestures, and eye rolls. We had to agree to stop talking about it if we wanted to keep the friendship going. Later, I did a bit more research (and of course watched the Lifetime movie featuring Hayden Panettiere) and I still have no doubt in my mind that

Off with their whorish heads!
Johnna

I spilled my beer again. Can someone find me a grown-up sippy cup? Thanks. So there was a question last night that referenced Princess Di and I realized that I don’t really know that much about her. I mean I know the importance stuff, like that her Beanie Baby is worth anywhere between $100 and $100,000,000 depending on its edition and that her eyes were a very pretty shade of blue. My curiosity about Princess Di sent me down an internet rabbit hole filled with iconic fashion choices and conspiracy theories that made me believe the cashier at Trader Joe’s may be the Princess in disguise. I wrapped this all up with reading about Prince Charles and his mistress-now-wife Camilla

This one is for you, Johnny Utah.
Johnna

I spilled my beer again last night. Every time a beer goes down, it’s a tragedy but this one was especially hard for me. I had hardly taken a sip when I neglectfully nudged my computer and it tipped that glass of golden liquid to its puddled demise. As I watched it being mopped up, I couldn’t help but think of all it could have done if my carelessness hadn’t taken it too soon. Maybe that glass was the one to finally push me to purchase that inflatable unicorn horn for cats that’s been sitting in my Amazon cart for months now. Maybe I would’ve felt like making mac and cheese when I got home if I had been just that much tipsier. I might have even decided watching

Lucky Charms
Johnna

I don’t know about you, but I had nightmares about a zombiesque Matt Damon chasing me while wielding a knife dripping with blood and saying his own name in that voice. You know the one…“Matt Damon. Matt Damon. Matt Damon.” Fortunately, there was also a leprechaun lurking about. He had a pot of pointy gold coins that he could throw like ninja stars and he managed to pin the undead version of Matt Damon to the side of a car. This car happened to be driven by the still living and still looking hot af version of Matt Damon. He dove out of the car and rolled onto a nearby bed of wildflowers, just as the car and the decomposing version of himself toppled down a cliff. I

Swanky Swayze
Johnna

I had a lot of people ask me about Patrick Swayze last night. I guess it could have had something to do with his handsome face joining me at the Quizmaster table. I’m actually really disappointed that none of you caught on to the fact that he was the key to almost every answer! I mean, seriously it was so obvious. Take for example that round on Pennsylvania. If you know anything about Patrick and his work, you know that he starred in the film Tiger Warsaw and it was shot in Pennsylvania. A few viewings of that classic and you would have known everything there is to know about PA. Or remember the Top Gun answer in the visual round? Well you should have also known that Patrick Swayze auditioned

Thoughts on Firefly and Lumberjacks
Johnna

The geeks of the world can’t seem to get over Firefly and I have a theory why.  Firefly is that stud muffin you’re standing next to in line.  Before you let your eyes roll too far back in your head, picture this! You just finished the last season of Buffy and need something to soothe your aching heart so you run to your local food stop and grab a bottle of wine and a box of macaroons to cry into. You jump into line and start perusing the magazines, when you see him. The tall drink of water with a beard that would make any lumberjack green with envy. He turns to you and the corner of his lip turns up, just a bit. “Did you see that Jennifer Lawrence

Foreign Language Lessons with Rita Hayworth
Johnna

I know that I said I haven’t’ seen the Shawshank Redemption, but I was wrong! I Googled it and now I remember watching the last 45 minutes or so. It was playing at this gym I used to go. They had a magical space called the Cardio Cinema room. It’s exactly what you think it is- a dark room filled with treadmills and ellipticals and other such torture devices with a movie projected onto one of the walls. Honestly, this is still the only way I can drown out the angry voices in my head while working out. I just don’t like running, ok? Especially on a treadmill, what’s my motivation on those things? But put some beef jerky in my pockets and throw me in some Sasquatch
