Down with the Blank Space
MawleyEh

Another night, another adventure! That’s what I say! Just kidding, who the hell says something like that. However, it was another awesome Wednesday at Glass Half Full Richardson for me, Michael, and the 22 teams that joined us! First of all, I was high on Dayquil for the 3rd day in a row, making me even more of a sassy turd than normal. The sass was taken well by our quizzers, because everybody wanted to make nice with Caitlyn the O’Dells Brewery girl. That’s right! We had a local brewery rep at quiz last night sharing their one of their new beers. Turns out, Alamo Drafthouse

Uncle Ben encounters Morpheus and Han Solo on his way to capture Doctor Moreau
The Gould Standard

IMDB messed up the plot for Apocalypse Now too. What's next, Ben Affleck is Batman? Oh wait.... On a serious note, I would absolutely love to see a movie of a Nazi SS officer and Ray Charles freeing slaves. That would be amazing. We had a quaint quiz tonight, at least compared to last week. 10 teams, down from 18, but every team stuck it out for every round, which usually does NOT happen. This is gonna be a quick recap, because SOMEONE'S got a job interview Wednesday he needs to prep for. stay sexy and don’t get murdered jumped out to a huge early lead thanks to a perfect, jokered R2. They needed that lead since they were outscored

And then there was Steve
MawleyEh

Let’s go back in time, a few weeks ago. As always, the teams at Glass Half Full were answering all quiz questions with grace and style (or hilarity and confusion. Or all of the previously mentioned adjectives). Suddenly, in Round 8, a question graced us with it’s presence: what was the name of Obama’s father? The teams leaned towards each other, brows furrowed in concentration, trying their best to recall the father who inspired much of our 44th President’s memoir. Just like that, the round was over. Volunteers from each team stood and turned in their answers sheets, as Michael and I began to tally and input the final numbers

I've Made a Terrible Mistake
The Gould Standard

Hello Whiteness my old friend.... Yes, I meant whiteness. I've found my regular go-to meal at Alamo, and it's the chicken tenders with a side salad and the lemon vinaigrette. I cut up the chicken and put it in the salad, top with the dressing, and enjoy. I was halfway through the salad last night when the dressing flavor ran low, so I decided to pour the ranch dressing that was served with the chicken tenders onto the salad. I plunged my fork deep into the flesh and muscle of the chicken, piercing into spinach and a tomato shard, brought it to my mouth, and an unexpected wave of flavors cascaded over my tongue. I had poured gravy onto my salad. Needless

Red Delicious are for whores and vagabonds
MawleyEh

I'm not much of a foodie- like, if it tastes good, I'm probably going to eat it. I know I'm a little picky when it comes to textures of things: tapioca, okra, mushrooms...gross.  But apples. Apples are great! Okay most apples are great. And in round 3 last night at Glass Half Full we learned there was an article from an actual cooking magazine all about apple statistics. Pink Lady apples are the best, apparently, for baking. Scorekeeper Michael and I were in agreement that Honeycrisp and Gala apples are delicious (but damn, honeycrisp can be so freaking expensive) but Red Delicious apples are good for two things: applesauce and throwing into the

Close Only Counts in Horseshoes and Hand Grenades
The Gould Standard

For the seconds straight week, there's been a bounty in play if a team can knock off our reigning champions, and for the second straight week, a team has lost by a single point. Andrew Jackson didn't release his taxes either had a shot at the end with Didn't the Sokovia Accords cause the civil war? floundering with a 10 point round 8, but could only make up 3 of the 4 point deficit. The bounty will remain at $60 in perpetuity until they get taken down. But I want to give major props to All the team names and The Millenial Falcon. Looking at other venues' scores across the country, your 88 and 86, respectively,

….I used to sing this song drunkenly to my cat
MawleyEh

These are the kinds of things that scorekeeper Michael and I say to each other during the rounds, if you’re curious. Or we have odd half-conversations that include sentences like “well yeah, that was one sexy chicken; her name was Camilla what do you expect? She was pretty skanky” (for the record the title of the blog was me telling Michael what I used to do in my free time when Yellowcard’s ‘Ocean Avenue’ began to play; and don’t really know how we started talking about The Great Gonzo and his obsession with poultry). Weirdness of your fearless leader (unless we’re talking about static shock or clogged garbage disposals, then fuck it

You Come at the King, You Better Not Miss
The Gould Standard

Week 1 of Glass Half Full quiz with a bounty on the top team went as well as it could go without toppling the giant. 32 years ago, Natalie's mom was her 1st turtleneck took a swing at the king (We control a giant monster in Korea), and JUST missed, taking 2nd place by a point: 90-89. But seriously, the movie is CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. Why would Robert Downey Jr. get top billing in a CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE?!?!?! *end rant* Tonight's quiz ended up being a 2 horse race, but major props to Prom Babies. Most nights, 83 points would be good enough to at least place, let alone win. So the champs weren't taken down.

I'm a Pretty Pretty Princess
MawleyEh

That’s…that’s a lie. I never have considered myself to be a ‘princess’, and I’ve never been called one by any exes I can think of. I was definitely a tomboy growing up (I say, wearing my cat/owl hybrid shirt and ripped jeans) and so the game Pretty Princess never really floated my boat. However it clearly made some quizzers quite excited when discussed; and the inevitable debate came up: was the winning piece a crown, or a tiara? Of course because I’m weird, I jumped onto Google to figure out what the hell the difference was. In a nutshell, crowns were/are specifically a circular piece of ornamental headgear of precious metals worn by

Apparently Steven Segal's Got a Secret
The Gould Standard

Day 1 of regularly hosting at Glass Half Full, and I made a fool of myself. I flubbed a line tonight. It was a Freudian slip all the way. The line was "...to break up a cockfighting ring." Due to the GWD code of conduct for blogs, all I'll say is that I flipped a consonant in the last and 2nd to last words. There were lots of raised eyebrows and chuckles. Hey, we all make mistakes. Some more pubic than others. MOAB's Over Baghdad hit the ground running with a perfect jokered R2 and never looked back. Prom Babies and Figurative Human Trash jockeyed for 2nd place, with Prom Babies crawling

Yes, I'm From Californ-meh
MawleyEh

Last night we talked a lot about things that are great and things that suck about the 50 United States. Lots of things are awesome about everywhere, but lots more things are crappy about everywhere. And it’s kinda fun to talk about things that sucks. I’d normally go after whatever state I’m living in at the moment, but that means I’d be talking trash about Texas. I know of at least five people that will punch me in the boob if I say bad things about this state (IT’S THE GREATEST); instead let’s poke some fun at my home state: California. Here’s some reasons why California is a crusty scab on the edge of North America: Rent. Let’s

Themed Cakes and Musical Mistakes
MawleyEh

Themed cakes- wedding or otherwise- make me happy. They’re normally always nerdy in some way, and depending on the baker, can be done in a way that is still very elegant and fun. Last night’s round five definitely made me happy with how incredibly nerdy those cakes were, and how well they were all executed! If you knew even a smidge about any of the answers, you could clearly see the answer in the design on the cake. That Portal one was 12 degrees of adorable. To say that round 2 last night was a doozy would have been an understatement. Turns out, none of us really know who does what music anymore- especially when the band/artist that originally made a song

MawleyEh

This may seem crazy, but every night before quiz begins I read over the questions. I know! Sometimes, at least twice. I KNOW! And so when I read that there was a round all about zoos last night, oh man did I get excited. For those of you who aren’t in the know (because I mention it at least once a week) I am a zookeeper for an actual big city zoo. I work with a variety of animals, and something the general public isn’t familiar with is the frequency that I speak to the public. Most people describe a zookeeper as someone who likes animals more than people, is very anti-social, didn’t go to college, and swims in a sea of khaki &

What's Next - Air Bud - Curling Edition?
The Gould Standard

I remember seeing the first Air Bud movie in theaters. 11 year old Michael got a little emotional during the "both owners stay put and call for the dog and whoever he comes to is the owner" scene, and it made 11 year old Michael very happy that Bud bit Mr. Noodle. That's right, the villain of the original Air Bud movie was also Sesame Street's Mr. Noodle. But they never made an Air Bud - Hockey edition. Come now - did you even think about the logistics of that before writing it down? A dog's not going to play goalie. It's not going to put the puck in its mouth. A dog would have more success in curling, where it could dig in front of the stone and help influence where

Meet Sophia
MawleyEh

Since the moment I realized that GwenPal (the wonderful Barbie head I kept in my pencil box) went missing, I had a small hole in my heart (I bet GwenPal would say I could fix it by becoming vegan, but shut the hell up you’re dumb and bacon is great. Plus you’re a head in a box). But last night that small hole was filled. Not by whisky (that’s just what runs in my veins) but by Sophia. SK Michael found a doll online that fit what we needed for a GwenPal the 2nd. But once we took Sophia out of the box she was shipped in, it was clear to us that she needed to keep her original name.
