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.

Alexa - Blow My Motherloving Mind

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. I have this image of myself as a successful person getting up in the morning

Urban Dictionary defines hershey squirts as: A particularly pernicious, nasty, form of diahhroea in which the victim feels the need to pass gas, but instead liquid shit comes squirting out resulting in a very unpleasant shitting of one's pants, often in a public or otherwise unforgiving location, far from a shithouse."Damn, I thought I was just gonna fart, but had the Hershey Squirts and wound up shitting myself right there in the mall."

Blog Writing With Cat

I would like everyone to know that I am writing this blog with a cat in my lap and my laptop precariously placed such that the cat could push it off of the couch at any time. I think you can guess who wears the very furry pants in this relationship. I am also enjoying a Rohrbach's Vanilla Porter because it's stuffing and mashed potatoes eve and why the hell not. I'm warming up my liver. Tomorrow will be solid. It was so good to see y'all again. I know I say this every time, but I super duper miss all of you when I take a week off.

Reel Big Fish Fulfillment
The Brennagade

Blog two of four this week here we gooooooooooooo. On Monday night, I went to go see Reel Big Fish for the ninth? tenth? time. I’ve pretty much lost track at this point. Anyways the show was in Ithaca at the Haunt, which is the cutest venue I’ve probably ever been to. It was tiny and intimate with no guard fencing, so you could get as close to the stage as you wanted, with a bigger bar area at the back of the venue with a sizable counter/railing all the way around it for the perfect old man spot to watch the show, lean on the railing, and drink your beer. This is usually my MO when I go to ska shows. I go for the music and the band but can’t skank to

Car Adventures and Ignoring Internal Terror
QM Colleen

I had an adventure in car repair yesterday! I'm going to tell you about it. I went to class in Henrietta yesterday and then drove to Fed Ex to make my visual round prints. The Fed Ex location I go to has outer walls made of glass, so when you park in front of the building it is basically a perfect mirror. When I turned my car off, I remember thinking "Oh, good! Both of my headlights are still working. I've been meaning to check on that." Now I recently had to replace a rear blinker but it wasn't too difficult. Just a couple screws, pull the light set-up thing-a-ma-jig out, replace it, bing bang boom. I knew that the headlights were harder to deal with and I've been dreading

Sportsball
QM Colleen

Good to be back at Wall Street last night, my friends! I am gonna talk about sportsball in my blog for what is probably the first time ever. And the only time ever. GO CUBS GO! I apologize for getting distracted by the game in the middle of quiz, but the cubs had a 7-0 lead and that was pretty damn exciting. I'm proud of the Cubs. They have staved off two near World Series wins from the Indians, the playing field is now level, and they still have not thrown away their shot. I love me an underdog. The Indians are kind of an underdog too, I know. But it's the freaking CUBS guys. That being said, we did have that question last night about the teams that have never made
