Jeeeeeeeeopardy!
QM Colleen

I always seem to wait to write my blog until Jeopardy is on because I'm bad at planning SO my blog is going to be a stream of consciousness about this Jeopardy episode. Hope you watch it too so you know what I'm talking about. If not, then.... eh. It's kinda relevant to quiz, we DID listen to the slowed down theme song during quiz at Wall Street. I'm gonna get the "Last night at quiz..." part out of the way first:First place last night went to Your mom has me on speed dial because she likes the way I *69 her and second went to My Wife's Boyfriend Sure Seems Nice! Wee having a sense of humor! Come back next week! Enjoy my Jeopardy drivel. Dude, the returning winner

Staples? More like Baeples oh god I'm sorry I'm Done Okay
Julie

Fun QM Julie fact: I’m a sucker for office supplies. I love them. My desk at Other Job ™ is decked out with all sorts of neat digs. My stapler is bright pink. My scissors are neon green. I have a series of desk organizers, courtesy of IKEA, and my mug has a golden retriever with glasses on it. I have a golden retriever. I wear glasses. It all works so well. My favorite office supply is actually my most recent addition, however. His name is Divine, he’s a sparkly flamingo who happened to also be a tape dispenser, and he is fabulous. Really ties my whole desk together. I hope some day to populate my whole desk with similar accessories, like perhaps a stapler shaped like a shark

Why Is Our Power In The Air... And Now On The Ground....
QM Colleen

I always like to remind y'all to drive safe on your way out the door of quiz. I hope you continued to drive safe the next morning. Damn, guys. Have you ever thought about how ridiculous our power lines are? One day in the near future, our tall poles suspending rubber tubes filled with incredibly dangerous shit will look silly. I hope. Because seriously, I feel like this is something we should have figured out by now. OH WAIT. WE HAVE. PUT THAT SHIT UNDER THE GROUND. Why don't we do that? I mean, it's probably a money thing. Cities and towns and whatever don't have the budget to invest on the infrastructure change, blah blah blah blah.... It's the same reason we

Dirty Monkey, Die.
QM Colleen

I asked a cat what to write about. She told me she didn't care. I am sad and alone in the universe. But not actually! Things are good! Weeeeeeeee. I was so happy to be back with y'all last night! I missed your faces. As some of you may know, I was off getting training for a real life job! Wooooooooo. I haven't had a desk job since I first started hosting. And now I have one again. And I am so freaking happy. That is the only reason I was able to miss seeing y'all for 3 weeks. The cat is getting annoyed with me for continuing to ask what to write about. Don't you know that free thought is dead cat?!?! I MUST BE TOLD WHAT TO THINK. BY A CAT. First place last night

To the stranger who called me a potato on the internet
The Brennagade

To the random guy who called me a potato on the Internet, Well first of all, I’d like to say fuck off. I have a lot of questions. Number one, How dare you? I posted a picture of my rats Sans and Papyrus looking cute af in the bathtub and in the hood of my hoodie. This was in a subreddit by rat owners for rat owners to brag about how cute their little noodle dogs are. Everyone there is helpful and nice. You were clearly in the wrong place. What did you mean when you called me “a certified potato”? Was it an obscure Undertale reference I didn’t get? The internet pretty much confirmed it wasn’t. And everyone else downvoting you confirmed it

Dogs are my One True Love
Julie

I was gonna write a whole blog about Valentine’s Day and how important it is to love yourself the most blah blah blah but you know what? Dogs. Guys. The Westminster dog show was on last night during quiz. I didn’t even know it was happening last night! What a pleasant surprise! Was it a little distracting during quiz to see those beautiful angels parading all around? Yes, highly, in all the best ways. I am thankful to have caught the giant breeds category which isn’t actually called that but featured the biggest, wrinkliest dogs which happen to be my favorite kind though I certainly do not discriminate, I am an equal opportunity dog lover. Even bull terriers, which look like

Do Not Playlist
The Brennagade

Sooooooooo I really like music. Most people do. It’s a pretty standard thing to like. But I also have the bad habit of getting way too into whatever I’m listening to. Be it crying my eyes out listening to the La La Land soundtrack because the movie made me feel things and I didn’t get all my crying out of my system when I was in the movie theater or doing the same exact thing to the Moana soundtrack because I’m a goddamn mess or belting pretty much anything else. This is fine normally when you’re sitting at home like a normal person listening to music or when you’re trying to be productive and do work on the computer. This is way less fine when you’re

QM Colleen's Stream of Consciousness Super Awesome Funtime
QM Colleen

I'm totally watching Wheel of Fortune while I write this. I'm totally waiting for Jeopardy to start while I write this. The other day I sat on a couch, watching Jeopardy, with a purring cat in my lap. This is my idea of a perfect night. Some of you may say I'm boring, I say I'm awesome. Don't worry, quizzing with y'all is a close second. I am a mega introvert, my friends. There is a guy on tonight's episode of Wheel of Fortune that has a cat with 24 toes. That's 6 toes on EVERY FOOT. Because MATH. Cats with extra toes are awesome. So many extra beans!!! Ok I'll stop writing about Wheel of Fortune. Unless something awesome happens. Do you remember Wishbone?!!?

Semi-NSFW, Mostly About Cows and Mags
QM Colleen

Nothing demonstrates the American dream better than a cow becoming a mayor. Do you think her mother instilled in her a hope that she could be whatever she wanted when she grew up? Do you think she pulled herself up by her hoofstraps? April is an inspiration to us all. If you want more info about her, you should totally check out this little blurb. https://simplyorcas.com/tag/april-the-cow/Basically it seems like the whole mayoral position is kind of a joke in this tiny town. But damn, she is a KINE-d and benevolent ruler. Get it?!?? Kine?!?!? I make my own fun. Oh! That's what I was planning to write my blog about. So once upon a time I received a magazine

An Ode to Lost Things
QM Colleen

As I left Fed Ex last night with my visual round prints tucked neatly under my coat to protect them from the dihydrogen monoxide falling from the sky, I passed a puddle next to a curb. In that puddle lay a piece of plastic, pink and clear, that someone would surely miss. It was a pacifier. A binky. A... whatever sickeningly cute name you give them. I've written blogs about lost items before so if this is a repeat for you, check out this cat instead. Maybe that pacifier was expendable - bought yesterday, one in 1000 that will get lost over the course of that baby's childhood. OR maybe that pacifier was their everything.

Well, I Can't Break My Glasses
QM Colleen

There was some stuff on last night's quiz that I didn't realize. Allow yourself to feel smarter than your QM: - Carat is a unit of weight. I think I always thought it was some sort of quality metric. Jewelery is not a thing I care a whole lot about. Unless it has cats on it. Because CATS.- There was a Kevin James film called Zookeeper. Oh Kevin James. Just find something else to do.- Stephen Colbert and Bob Saget totally DO look really similar. Side note, I'd like Stephen Colbert to re-record all of Bob Saget's How I Met Your Mother voiceovers. Then maybe I'd rewatch the show. Oh, and tape an alternate ending that, you know, doesn't suck.- I have never heard that

Holidays are for Cousin Kissin'
QM Colleen

Last night I learned that the fastest way for me get over my fear of the French language is to down a margarita before quiz. Now I know. This blog is probably just going to be a series of disjointed thoughts because my brain has no time for narrative at the moment. Avogadro's number made me think about the obvious avocado pun which reminded me of Avocado Cat. If you've never seen Avocado Cat, I am here to fix that or you. If you have, here's another chance to revel in his glory.Click here for superfood feline goodness. We had a question about Niagara Falls

I'm a little teapot and I will POUR SALT WATER INTO YOUR FACE.
QM Colleen

Last night we had a question about that special pot that can clear your sinuses - the Neti Pot. By the way, Duka sounds like it's a brand, so a Duka pot would just be a normal pot. I've used a Neti Pot before and I have to say it is probably one of my least favorite sensations that doesn't involve pain. It did clear out my gross and blocked nose though! The musical I was in at the time was probably the better for it. But you'd have to pay me some money to try that again. I'll take my Dayquil and Sudafed, please. Drugs. Drugs are lovely. Ok so a Neti Pot works like this (you can Google all of this but I'm assuming you are as lazy as I):You get this teapot thing. It's sometimes

Cat Butts and Gushy Feelings
QM Colleen

How awesome would it be if you could pay your debts in rum? Or collect all of your debts in rum! I don't really have anything else to say on that topic, just commenting. That would be tight. I haven't done a gush-about-my-quizzers post in a while so I'm gonna do that for this blog. If you are grossed out by such sentiments, go take your curmudgeony butt elsewhere. Plus, the state of "things" in general terrifies me right now so I need to put some positivity out there. I'm so glad to have been able to hang out with y'all for another year. I have met people and made friends that I never would have if it weren't for Geeks. Also I have some cat butts I wouldn't have had otherwise,

The Ramblings of QM Colleen - Episode.... Something
QM Colleen

It was crazy in Wall Street last night, wasn't it? There were so many people just out on a Tuesday night. I'm not judging (please, I'd have no grounds to) but that doesn't stop me from being surprised. Holy full bar, Wall Street. I am writing another blog with a cat in my lap. I thought you should know. Let's see, what else should I talk about... Oh! I went to this awesome shop in Ithaca this past weekend and it was full of yarn. Floor to ceiling shelves filled with yarn. It was the Beauty and the Beast library of yarn. I wanted to put it all on my face. There were some with awesome multicolor dye-jobs (heh, that sounds dirty). There were some that were ultra soft.

Dude. So I just got to play with Alexa for the first time. Like the black plastic disk with a blue ring that talks to you. The sexier cousin of Siri. Holy shit it's cool. Her pickup range is insane. I can stand in the kitchen with it in the living room and she can hear me. You can PLAY JEOPARDY WITH HER. And she requires you to answer in the form of a question. Holy shit. Holy shit. HOLY. SHIT. I might be freaking out a little. I don't know if you can tell but HOLY SHIT. You can tell her to go find the latest episode of some podcast. It's the best thing ever. I want one now.
