The R-word for the period after male orgasm? Remorse
ChristopheR2D2

Thank you once again, Holiday Club!  I have an absolute blast each and every week, and last night was no exception.  Case in point, the inspiration for today's blog title.  Yes, one team actually submitted "remorse" as the word for the preiod after the male orgasm.  I love you beautiful bastards.    Regulars Kiss Me! I'm Stupid lept out to an early lead and managed to hold off a late charge by Counterclockwise Swirl to take 1st place.  But the Swirl crew game 'em a good test, ands only came up 2 points short.   Good stuff everyone.  Also a shout out to the folks in the home office,

Urine for a real treat
ChristopheR2D2

Back at it again at Holiday Club.  We had plenty of familiar faces and plenty of new ones as well. I had a blast as always, and just like every week, we all learned a few new things.  Like Wordpress is still a thing?  Seriously? And how crazy is it that in West Side Story a dude goes through Spanish Harlem yelling "Maria!" and only one girl comes to the window?  I call bullshit. But we learned about the pH of our pee, so that was golden. Yanno who else was golden?  Betsy's Grizzlies, that's who.  Through the first 5 rounds, they were one point shy of a perfect score.  They rode that ass whooping to a

Seriously, flush the toilet.
ChristopheR2D2

As we closed out thee month of January it was about time we didn't have a tie. Which is good because I was out of tie breakers.  Also, i have to give a shout out to 3rd place finishers www., who put together that  showing in only their second week of quiz with us at Holiday Club.  Well done, indeed.   In other news, I thought I should mention that no, Tom Hanks was not in thee Goonies.  Which makes we wonder if some of you have actually seen thee Goonies.  Seriously, go watch it. Much as I'd rather not, I would be remiss to not congratulate No Chris, we don't wanna have a threesome for taking the

Does God play Tennis?
ChristopheR2D2

Welcome to the world of our new Tiny-handed Cheeto Overlord.  I say the back room of Holiday Club is our new "safe space."  Cuz that's where all the awesome shit happens.  Like a 2nd place tie for the third week in a row!!  Seriously, guys, quit it.  I'm running out of tie breaker questions.  But more on that in a bit. And yes, there were lots of questions (alternative facts?) about what god does or does not play.  Lots of fun answers: Basketball, Tennis, Poker... only a few knew it was dice.  But even better were some of the answers in the Matt/Willie/Cow round.  Kudos to those of you who thought that a cow was

It's not gay in a three way
ChristopheR2D2

Forgive the delay folks, technical difficulties on my end. So here we are, with our second consecutive three-way tie for second place.  You guy are just too damn good.  Except those of you who thought the museum for phalluses actually housed flags.  I'm still confused about that. Indeed our last quiz at Holiday Club before Donnie fucks us all was a barnburner, And one that saw some familiar faces take the top prize. Throwing up a perfect score in the video round probably helped.  Or maybe they watch too many movies.  Any way, you guys kick ass Not Last Place. And poor Kool-Aid always being associated with Jonestown,

It's so hard to say goodbye...
ChristopheR2D2

We're gonna miss you, Barack.  Eight years ago we watched proudly as Chicago's own took the helm of a country that had been thoroughly raked over the coals by W & co., and somehow managed take the dumpster fire you inherited and fix a ton of shit and made things pretty fantastic.  All while having to deal with racist dickbags who said from day one their main goal was to see to it that they blocked your every move.  So you bid us farewell while we watched (and delayed the start of quiz) and spoke so eloquently as always.  The likes of which w may not hear for sometime, if ever again.  We are so fucked in 9 days. But quiz, that's why we're hre.

Welcome to our first quiz recap of the new year!  We say good riddance to 2016 and the shit show it was from start to finish, and welcome in the year of our new orange overlord.  Was great to be back at Holiday Club after a week off.  And great to see all of your lovely faces once again.  I have Faith in you all Get it?!?!?!  Yeah, because last night's quiz was a tribute to the one and only George Michael - the fellow who's never gonna dance again.  And in a fantastic start to GWD in 2017, we ended up with a first place tie & subsequent sudden death to determine our winner.   But we'll get to that...

ChristopheR2D2

Merry holidays, everybody!  Great showing as always Tuesday night.  As we wrap up 2016 & I celebrate a full year at Holiday Club, allow me to take this moment to express my gratitude that I get to be your host and spend my Tuesday nights as your QM.  I hope you all have a fantastic week & weekend.  As for the quiz, we had some newcomers take the top spot and we had some old friends put up a good showing as well.  Turns out, you guys know fuck all about Dutch painters.  Usually you guys are fantastic, but round 6 was rough.  Yeesh.  I still love you guys, though.   Also, I hope I never have to say the

Ho Ho Holy Sh!t it, it's cold outside! But Die Hard is on!
ChristopheR2D2

Thanks, Chicago!  I'm fairly certain half of the city was at Holiday Club last night, as there were no empty seats & even some folks standing during quiz.  We also had a record number of teams, with 18 in total - I had quite a time keeping up with scoring, and nearly effed it up at the end. Speaking of effed up, is anyone else at all concerned with Russia's involvement with our election?  Somehow no one seems to give a shit that the orange ball of chicken fat with the history of raping women was helped out by Putin.  Dear god we are so fuckkkkkkked.  Thank god for alcohol.  And GWD. Because you guys are awesome.

Holy Packed House, Batman!
ChristopheR2D2

Well done, Holiday Club.  You managed to turn up more teams for a single quiz than I've even seen in my year and a half of hosting.  In addition to packed house, a ton of new faces and teams.  I think nearly half of the quizzers were first timers. I'm impressed. Not only that, but we continued our steak of multiple teams finishing tied for 3rd place.  Last night it was regulars Quizteama Aguilera and newcomers Now We Sip Champagne... who would up knotted in 3rd.   Speaking of Newcomers - both the top teams, Murderinos & Trivia Newton John are also fresh faces

General Custard
ChristopheR2D2

So um...  I lost my job today.  That kinda sucks  mostly because I have to go find a new one, and I hate doing so. Also I'll miss some people.  Oh, and getting paid.  That was a factor. So yeah...   this sucks. In happier news, we had quiz.  And instead of like an 11 way tie for 3rd place like last week, we had a two way tie for second.  I'm gonna attribute that to everyone's collective love of poop stuff.  Sickos.  Seriously, without knowing the theme of round 4 one of our teams had already given themselves a poop name.  Sheesh. This week we had two regular teams rename themselves, and it worked:  Both

Welp, this blog is tardy.  That's what happens when we have quiz before a long holiday weekend filled with friends, booze, food, sleeping and such.  But I didn't forget about you lovelies and our recap.   Once again we had a hell of a showing, as THREE teams tied for first place. Pray4Kanye, Not in Last Place, and Hamilton Shot First all put up 77 points to tie for 3rd.  One point better was East Chicago Barber College to land in 2nd, and newcomers Five by Five blew by everyone with 82 points for the top spot.  Let's hope they return this week and make it interesting.

Apparently Nobody Knows "Everybody Knows"
ChristopheR2D2

I love you beautiful, magnificent bastards.  Every week I turn up to Holiday Club and you manage to astound me in some new way.  Be it your clever team names, knowing the proper spelling for Avril Levine's Sk8er Boi, or some other nonsense, I'm delighted or sometimes saddened.  Once again, you didn't disappoint... In a nod to our dearly departed Leonards, we asked you about a Leonard Cohen song called "Everybody Knows."  And in a magical (or sad) bit of irony, not a single one of you knew that song.  And yet...  please see the above regarding Avril. Yanno what didn't disappoint?  All of you.  We had 6- SIX!!!! - teams that would

Way to fuck up, America.  In the most insane presidential election ever, millions of you picked a racist, homophobic, mysogynistic, child rapsit to be the next POTUS.  The fuck is wrong with you people?  I had to get so wasted last Tuesday trying to cope, that I left my laptop in the back of a Lyft  - thus making my blog post 6 days late & my anger even worse.  Jerk asses.   Quiz!!!   It was had.  In fact, in a bad-ass move from the folks over at Lonely Planet, we got some travel themed rounds, coupons, and one lucky lass - Sofia - got herself a copy of The Big Travel Book from LP.  Congrats to Sofia & big thanks the Lonely

The Chicago Cubs are so used to not being in the World Series that they failed to show up for Game 1.  While we had a hoot at quiz, the Cubs were playing like....  the Cubs.  Get your shit together, lads.  We sure did. Speaking of getting spanked like a bitch, we're only a couple weeks away from Trump being crushed by his own idiocy.  Hopefully we'll never have to hear from this racist, homophobic, sexual predator, xenophobic, twat fart ever again.  Seriously, we've all had enough.   As for quiz, Holiday Club regulars Not Last Place returned to the top spot, barely edging out fellow HC faves It's

ChristopheR2D2

Given that round 2 was all about Chicago artists, and we kind of live here, I was maybe sorta anticipating that you guys would fucking kill it.  Instead, we had a team mistake the Smashing Pumpkins for the Goo Goo Dolls (who aren't fucking from Chicago anyway), and almost half you didn't know one of the bands was Chicago.  C'mon Holiday Club quizzers, get yr shit together.  Next thing ya know, I'm gonna find out you all love to put ketchup on your hot dogs. Good News/Bad news - There was one team who crushed it all night.  That team was first timers Bi-Curious George, who has all of two team members.
