*clap emoji* LET PEOPLE LIVE! *clap emoji*
Lisa Pizza

There's a special kind of magic that happens when you stay up until 6am doing homework, and then go to work, and then go to quiz, and then close out a bar. That magic is sleepy contentment.   Holy shit, you guys. I got everything that I needed to get done, done. And it was so magical. Almost as magical as that damn unicorn frappuccino. I mean, I haven't tried it, but I've heard that people are into it, and for the love of god...   LET PEOPLE ENJOY THINGS.   I've been screaming this over the internet for a million years, and this week more than ever, but it is so, so, so,

Just kidding. I'll call you. And totally phone it in. Sorry, y'all. As you may know, I work at dang ol' Ground Kontrol and we are exxxxxxpanding. Like....now. Like, I should be at work crying and cleaning the dust off games with my tears right now. But, instead, I'm going in a lil' late because I have a head cold and I want to die and I worked so hard yesterday and was promised pizza and then there wasn't pizza. Life is a cruel mistress.

No, seriously. There's nothing I want to do more this week than get hella blazed and watch Air Bud. As an adult, I think this is a good use of my time.  Like, first of all, buttholes, who doesn't love wholesome movies about doggos who play heckin' sports? And secondly, weed rules.

Where The Whiskey Overfloweths
Lisa Pizza

Y'all, I am mildly hurtin' today. Every time I turned around, there was more whiskey.  So, so, so, so much whiskey. But it was good. We bonded. I even got another set of names to try to remember.Erm, Justin, Ann(e), Jonathan, Clarissa, Bri(e), and...Sam? The true test will come when I try to match all your faces up. But, really, I can't express my excitement enough. I'm so happy to see some of the old faces. The "Gabe Owner Era" faces. Your words, not mine. Alas, there is no more Gabe Owner. But now, you have a new enemy, and it is Trash Pandas. I love them. But also, I love all of you. So,

Lisa Pizza

You guys... STOP SHOWING UP AT 6:59 OH MY GOD.  Y'all, I show up to quiz almost an hour early, and there are plenty of days where I'm just certain that it's going to be a small quiz, but then I turn around at 6:59 and BLAMMO, there are a million of you out there.  And then you have to get drinks and order food and I like to be a nice lady who waits for you, so yeah...we almost always end up starting ten minutes late. I mean, it doesn't bother me THAT much. But...think of the benefits of showing up early:1.) There's a shorter bar line!!!!2.) You order food

The Volume In Here Is Too Dang High
Lisa Pizza

Daaaaaang, y'all. I expected everyone to be sleepy still from that darn ol' DST switch over, but that was not the case. You showed up. All of you. I even counted at one point... We jammed 48 people into that small space, and it was glorious. Except for all the times that you were super loud and then had to start loudly yelling at each other to stop being loud, and it was really just generally very very loud. I even had to whistle at you, which is fine except for the fact that I whistle very very loudly and honestly, it hurts my ears, so even though I can control a crowd with it...damn, it makes my ears ring. But, it was not loud enough to drown out the

Annnnd, It's Over!
Lisa Pizza

*SAD CRY EMOJI X1000* You guys, Geek Bowl was the most fun pretty much ever in the history of time ever and now it's over and everything is sad. Well, that's sort of a lie. Not everything is sad. For example...quiz isn't sad. Quiz rules. And I'm pleased to announce that I now know the names of Cassie & Ian, and no, their names are not Cassie & Ian. I'm not sure if they're chill with their names actually being in the blog, but I assure you, I know their names. And that's way more comfortable than all the eye contact I had to make over the weekend while trying to not let people know that I forgot their names.  You

Y'ALL, IT'S GONNA RIP. This coming weekend is going to be the best reward for working my ass off last week. Sure, there's an itinerary, but it's worth it. This company is so so so much fun, and nothing tickles me more than being able to travel and rub shoulders with my coworkers.  Plus, historically, they're down to do jaeger bombs with me, and

Thank You For Being A Friend!
Lisa Pizza

Your heart is true. You're a pal and a confidant.  For realsies though, you are all so wonderful and I appreciate how much of my shenanigans you put up with! Sometimes I mysteriously vanish (usually for concerts) and I end up really drunk with my phone in a toilet and then wonder why I didn't just skip the drama and hang out at quiz. But, it's because variety is the spice of life....and I guess that makes me very bland for seeing a band that's over twenty years old, one that I've already seen before. It was fun though. At least until I started barfing the next morning and remembered

I Got to Drive a Forklift Today
Charles

Got a new gig, and they've got a forklift.  Several forklifts, couple different kinds.  More than a decade ago I used to drive forklift at a summer job and I loved it.  Since I was a baby I've always been fascinated with industrial machinery, so to be given the opportunity to operate such machinery once again is great.  It'd been years, but it was like riding a bike, it all came right back.  This has nothing to do with quiz, nothing at all, I'm just real excited about it.  Forklifts!   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Bristol?  Sweaty?  I don't get none of this.  Oh, it's because it's a sports

Baby Got Mac!
Lisa Pizza

I did it! I made a reasonable and well researched adult purchase! That's right, y'all; I bought a MacBook Pro.With my tax return. And I maybe cried a little bit because of the price, but...it's a solid investment. I mean, already, my software is all doing what it's supposed to do. It doesn't randomly freeze. The scroll gesture doesn't randomly stop working. And it doesn't take a million goddamned years to upload and resize my quiz photos. This baby has a solid state drive and it makes me happy cry every single day. It does everything so fast. Anyway, some weird flubs in my level of preparedness caused me to buy you a pencil sharpener right

Remember That Hot Date I Had?
Lisa Pizza

Y'know...the one with my bed...and just me...and I was going to sleep all day? I'm at work again. *crying emoji x3*   Basically, I work up until the set up for tonight's quiz, and then I host a quiz, and then I'm going to DRIVE REALLY FAST to Mississippi Studios to see Lemuria. But hey, I somehow managed to get a photo of every single team and I am so beyond hyped about that. And I willingly chose to drink an Long Island Ice Tea last night, so like isn't all bad.  Here's the highlights reel: - Arctic Monkeys DID NOT record "Run To The Hills" but I would love to hear that cover if it exists

Lisa Pizza

 I'm not actually lying. That was a team name. Actually, because my typing sucks, they were 1.5 Million Atteending and I didn't want to fix it because honestly, it was kind of funny. I'm so happy to see all your beautiful folx! I feel like I haven't quizzed in a hundred years, and because of the snow and also my boogers, that's almost true! The last quiz I hosted was actually waaaaaay back on the tenth. But I'm back! And I don't even hate you! In fact, I love you, and that, my friends, is a regular fact.  I don't have a lot to say about quiz today. As you might remember me saying, my flight from Arizona landed

RIP My Travelling Water Bottle
Lisa Pizza

"If you love something, let it go." Sigh. I'm very sad to report that after quiz, my life fell apart. As I was slamming a sick pitcher of water, I felt a sinking feeling. I had the sudden urge to ask Craig to fill my blessed 40oz Hydro Flask with ice, for the road. And then I realized it was missing. I'm a total dipshit, and I was drinking it in a car2go, on my way to quiz. When I parked, I got an important notification, and it IMMEDIATELY distracted me. So, I grabbed my backpack
