Go Sportsball! Do the Thing! Win the Points!
Paddycake

It's not that I am not a sports person. I am actually a huge fan of the Astros, and I'm so excited to be seeing them next month when they play the Yankees. Basketball doesn't do anything for me. It's great that people love it. My roommate is actually a huge fan of the Spurs (don't judge him too harshly he's actually from San Antonio). But for whatever reason, I just can't seem to get into any other sport except Baseball.   But, amidst the game, we had a quiz going on too, and here's how it went.   Round 1: Double B's in honor of BB King. Everyone did pretty well, Black Bart being the answer everyone missed.   Round 2: I Command

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

There's Nothing Nietzsche Couldn't Teach Ya
Paddycake

Last night's visual round reminded me of Monty Python's song about drunken philosophers. I remember when I was in college, they had a couple of philosophy courses you could take, and many of my friends did since they were easy grades for humanities credits (fluff courses we called them), and they were taught by the professors that always seemed to frequent the local bar more often than their colleagues. So, maybe there's something to that... philosophy and drinking must go hand in hand.   The first course was just studying the works of various famous philosophers, and the second course was called applied philosophy, and was really just a free-thinking course about

This is What Some Wrong Answers Do To Me
Paddycake

I was laying in bed this morning trying to think of a something funny to write about, and I had a thought... Sometimes wrong answers can be inspiring... like last night when you said spiders aren't insects because they don't have ears. I was trying to think of a way to incorporate that into a story... like an insect that had ears or something. The only idea I could come up with was a play on Little Red Riding Hood about an and named Little Red Fire Ant-hood, who went to visit grandma but grandma had big ears... it made me giggle, but then I woke up fully and couldn't understand how it was funny, or even how to formulate a story based on that concept. So... alas... no funny story. But,

My Run-In With Bender Bending Rodriguez
Paddycake

As many of you may already know, I am a HUGE fan of Futurama, and being a super geek that I am, I rend to go to sci-fi and comic book conventions. I know… SUCH a shock, right? Well, I have met many actors from shows over the years at the many conventions I have gone to, but none of them have been as exciting and drunken as my run in with Bender. So first let’s set the scene. I was 22, and living in the New Orleans area. They have an annual sci-fi convention in New Orleans and I usually attended it. This year, I was attending with some college buddies, and we decided to make a weekend of it, instead of a day trip. So, we booked a room at the hotel by where the convention

Three Teams, Two Drinks, One Quiz
Paddycake

My drinks were actually just coke, since I don’t tend to drink when I’m hosting quiz. I did twice… the first time I screwed up the scores (that may have been because I was new, as well, but I’m sure the alcohol had something to do with it), and the second time, I almost fell over my table trying to read an answer to a bonus question. Neither of these occurred at Molly’s but, they were funny nonetheless. I’m a happy drunk, though. I tend to laugh and make jokes (most of which aren’t really all that funny), hug people, and just generally make a nuisance of myself… but the kind of nuisance that you don’t mind being around because they’re

8-Bit Memories, and Tricky Dickies!
Paddycake

I have a lot of fond memories of my youth, and many of them revolve around my old NES. I played constantly, and although there were always a few games that stood out as my favorites (and got replayed quite a bit), I was an avid renter of games. Countless weekends were spent hopped up on caffeine and junk food, huddled in front of my TV with a controller in my hand… ahhh who am I kidding… I still do that. But, the gamer in me aside, I have always had a soft spot for the music in video games, and it has come a VERY long way. The first time a piece of music from an NES game really grabbed me was when I rented Solstice for the weekend. This deceptively complex, and challenging

Adios, Aloha, Sayonara, Bon Voyage, Don't Forget to Write, etc...
Paddycake

Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere, but I lost two of my regular quizzers last night, and that makes me sad. Joel and Valerie, thank you so much for being awesome quizzers. You guys were there from the very beginning, and we shared many a nerdy moment together. Good luck on your new adventures up north, and I will do my best to keep in touch. Due to some circumstances beyond my control (work, and prior obligations), I can't spend a lot of time writing this blog, and I need to get it posted ASAP, so I will just say this. 1) Trivial Pursuit is not alliterative. 2) No one ever ate animal genetalia on Golden Girls. 3) There is no Paisly

I Pity the Fool
Paddycake

I also suffer none of them, have sent several on errands, seen some of them with gold… Oh wow… I just thought of something. Ok, so stay with me here… Mr. T wears a lot of gold, right? And he pities the fool, right? Maybe… just maybe… what he really doesn’t like is pyrite. I mean, it would make sense… a man who loves wearing gold as much as he does, with the exception of when he took them off for Katrina, would probably have a very strong aversion to fool’s gold. The most famous fool, and the one that always comes to mind when I hear the word “fool” is the tarot card. The man walking forward about to step off a cliff with his
