Wait, there's an email list?!
MawleyEh

Yes, that was an actual question that I got last night at Glass Half Full. Yes, indeed new quizzer and new friend!

You can subscribe right here on this here website and you’ll get a weekly email that includes five of the round themes for each week’s quiz. Five!

Justin Timberlake: A voice of women...?
MawleyEh

As many of us have seen in recent pop culture news; music repeats itself. Artists take lines from other artists, songs sound like other songs, sampling music from all genres across the board. Some of it is collaborative, others not so much. The most recent ‘fiasco’ was about the beat of Ed Sheeran’s newest song sounding exactly like a song from the early 90s group TLC. In my non-musical eyes, mistakes happen and mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery. In the case of Justin Timberlake, one of his song titles ended up being the same tagline as women who march against sexual violence. We know this, because it was a question last night for quiz at Glass Half

Awkward Snakes on Awkward Planes! Or: Who the Heck is Haru?
MawleyEh

Dear Texas: Get your weather together, man! Last week we had dips down into almost freezing temperatures (and this was a happy Molly. You can always wear more clothes, plus beanies & scarves are my favorite); and today the high in Dallas was 91. Ninety. One. Frick fracking. Degrees. This Texifornian grew up near San Francisco. We hit the high 80s maybe…less than a dozen times a year. Now I’ve been in Texas long enough to know that come summer it’ll be in the triple digits and I’ve learned to deal with it. But 91?! IN MARCH?! Frick on a stick! No! Just…no. The weird weather aside, we still had plenty of faces to come out

Travesty and Wookie Noises

Firstly, I’m sorry you guys. I have some terrible news. Someone. Stole. My. Barbie Head. To those of you who aren’t familiar with me, my pencil box is special. On it is scrawled “What’s in the box?!” in slightly worn black sharpie. Upon opening it, you see of course our infamous Geeks Who Drink pencils. There also was a Barbie head that many new teams would mistake for a pencil sharpener (there’s one of those in there too). Was. Past tense. At some point this last week, “Gwen Pal” was forcibly removed from her home in my pencil box to places unknown. This is a travesty, and if anyone has seen her please let me know. I

Air punch! Shark onesies! Disney songs!

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL NIGHT IN THE BOOKS over here at Glass Half Full. Last night was especially entertaining because my guest scorekeeper was none other than my dear friend and fellow Quizmaster; Robin. Not only are we pals and quiz together, we work together at BOTH JOBS! That’s right, the sassy girl that sat to my left and graded your smarts is also a zookeeper. When asked what we do at the zoo, her ‘witty’ response always is “We’re in charge of doing the elephant circumcisions. The pay is crap but the tips are huge.” Robin will then cackle in delight and wait for the other person to get the joke. I

"I Farted and my Back Popped"

Quote brought to you by Scorekeeper Michael. GUYS. You. Guys. Gals. Non binary pals. What a momentous occasion it is! We’ve got a scorekeeper again! Meet Michael: plaid wearer (yes), glasses wearer (nerd), won an award for his Christian Bale Batman voice (creepy), and all around one of us. He likes to take your answer sheets and judge the crap out of you before showing me the wrong answers so we can laugh at you. A fantastic example of this would be how many of you associate women and the onamonapia “plop”, with “tits”. Of all the noises in the universe, that’s what you think of?!

And In The End...

“And, in the end. The love you take is equal to the love you make.” -Paul McCartney Tonight was my last quiz as the regular Monday host at Glass Half Full. One team, who knew it was my last night, used that as their team name and I think it sums everything up very nicely. I really loved you guys and I felt the love right back. The Fabulous Molly will be taking over her GHF monopoly next Monday and you’ll be able to see her twice a week (Monday and Wednesday at 8pm) at GHF if you so desire.

Taint it fun
MawleyEh

So there has been a challenge issued amongst the local quizmasters to tell an embarrassing moment or story in their blog. Thankfully my life is an embarrassment (AMIRITE) so it’s pretty easy to come up with a few stories. I have one in particular that I think is a good representation of me and how I live my life. About a year ago I needed to get some snacks, so I headed over to the closest cheap ‘grocery store’ – Walmart. I’m sure that you all have realized that I can be an obnoxiously friendly person- I have no problem smiling at strangers, giving compliments to a store employee, actually listening to someone when I ask “how are you?”

Happy Precedence Day
dammit kevin

OK. OK. I know that’s not really what today was but it’s also not “President’s Day” nor “Presidents Day”, it’s “Presidents’ Day”. I like to amuse myself on days like today by spotting as many misuses of the name as possible. The most common version is “Presidents” without any apostrophes. That appears to be the version for advertisers and graphic designers who don’t want to figure out the correct use or simply think that throwing an apostrophe in the middle will ruin the look of their ad. I haven’t seen a “Precedence Day” yet but I’m going to start using it here in the hopes that it

Ain't No Injury Bad Enough
MawleyEh

So last week at my daytime job I pulled my left trapezius muscle. For those of you not in the know-that’s one of your neck muscles, between your neck proper and your shoulder. The one where if dudes work out too much it looks like a smaller man popping out of a larger man’s shoulders. My daytime job requires a whole lot of heavy lifting and turning, and at some point I pulled that muscle. To say I was in pain on a constant basis is an understatement. It hurt to sit. It hurt to lay down. It hurt to stand. It hurt to turn my neck. On random episodes, the muscle would spasm, sending my pain from a 6 to a 9 on the ‘super owie time’ scale. I consider myself to be

Happy Valentine's Day

We didn’t touch on it much at quiz tonight but tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Some people complain about the holiday – they say it was invented by the greeting card industry and that’s it’s just a made-up excuse for taking your money. Personally, I don’t care where it came from. Don’t buy greeting cards if you don’t want to. That shouldn’t stop you from using any excuse you can to show the one you love how much you love them and how much they mean to you. To that end, I want all of you to know that I have the most amazing girlfriend in the world! There’s not even the smallest thing I would change about her. She’s kind,

My Quizzers > Your Quizzers
MawleyEh

Call me sappy, call me sentimental, call me a marshmallow cinnamon roll of sugar and toothache. But I think my quizzers are the absolute best. They roll their eyes at my hilarious (read: terrible) jokes, cheer (kinda) when others win the bonus prizes, and celebrate everyone’s knowledge. From the time 6 separate teams wore flannel for good luck, to the Carlton dance offs, to the hilarious outbursts as I attempt to read dirty questions aloud on the mic, to the QFAC celebrating late quizzer and friend of many Matt Johnson, and a million other reasons: these people are truly good people.

Alligator Rock
dammit kevin

Tonight’s round 2 featured a cover of Elton John’s Crocodile Rock. It’s a really fun song and one of my favorite concert memories was seeing Elton John at Gexa Energy Pavilion (or Smirnoff or Starplex or whatever it was called at the time) performing a slow version of Crocodile Rock. It was amazing. Fast forward 20+ years and I’m grading quiz answers where one team identifies the song as Alligator Rock. To help you guys out, here are a list of differences between crocodiles and alligators:  - Alligators have wider, U-shaped snouts, while crocodiles’ are more pointed and V-shaped - With their mouths shut, crocodiles look like they’re

Pretty Sure Betty White has Made an O Face Before…
MawleyEh

Do you realize how many manias exist in this world? There are manias that involve over-washing yourself (ablutomania), there’s rhinotillexomania (compulsive nose picking), and even pteridomania… an obsession for ferns. Holy crap. These words are of course all based in Greek, and you have to search for the root of the word to fully understand what the word means. Hooray English language. For example: Hippomania. If you understand the Greek subtext that hippo meant horse (ie. ‘hippopotomous’ is from the Greek meaning ‘water horse’) then using your brain hole you understand that hippomania means an obsession with horses. Here comes Molly, learnin’ you
