Your Feet are Disgusting
Charles

  The worst part of summer weather is that so many people think it's acceptable to have their gross feet hanging out everywhere.  Worse than having to see feet is having to hear feet.  The sweaty slurp-slap of flip-flops is pretty much the worst sound in the world.  Put some shoes on, you disgusting savages.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  I'm going to try to use the phrase sleek, sexy panhandle more often.   Round Three.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, Hilary Swank sounds like a porn star name.  Also have you seen this picture

Doomed to be Poor
Charles

You guys, I blew it.  I’m going to be poor forever.  This rental market is out of control, the gig economy (what up, quiz job) doesn’t pay for shit, and apparently the biggest factor is I have unknowingly been squandering my chances by eating too many avocado toasts.  I done goofed, and it’s all guacamole’s fault.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Trump demanding two scoops of ice cream while only allowing everyone else one is a metaphor for his entire life.   Round Four.  Boggle trying to prevent me from saying "fuck"?  Fuck you, boggle.   Round

The Revolution is Coming
Charles

Been paying attention to the news?  The President is in trouble, so he just fires that guy who is in charge of investigating him.  Have you been watching the The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu?  I hear it's good, and I think that this is how we get to there.  So since that's happening, if the choice is being up against the wall awaiting a bullet in the head or getting down with the situation, I'm going to survive.  So you're all fired as we dive into this New World Order.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Mozart, Pope Francis and the king of Spain have appeared on money worth fucking nothing because

Suddenly Summer
Charles

I wasn't ready.  I mean, I'm not exactly complaining, but I could go for a month of sixty-five to seventy degree days before jumping right up to eighty, you know?  Yeah, yeah, I know it's coming, but still, I'm about the transition.  Sure brings out the fair weather cyclists as well.  There should be a special passing lane and reserved spot on the MAX for those of us who ride regardless of the weather.  How else can I talk shit about nice weather?  I'm sure I'll come up with something.   This quiz, though.   Round Two.  What the fuck is with this Panda song and why is it so popular that spoof covers

Being Sick is the Worst
Charles

Being sick takes things that should be great and makes them shitty.  Sleeping all day (to avoid a headache), taking two days off work (when you can't enjoy it), or eating ice cream (because it's the only thing that doesn't hurt your sour throat).  Stupid body, just be normal again.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  I guess the tie-in to the bonus question was clever-ish, but that was the easiest giveaway of a round I ever did read.   Round Two.  I'm not sure whether I should be more embarrassed to know the words to In The End or Move Along.  I'm not at all embarrassed

FOURTWENTYBLAZEIT
Charles

  O shit, how high is everyone?  Today's the day, right?  Let me squint at these questions and try not to laugh uncontrollably.  Also, can I maybe have a little bite of that?  Real talk, I considered getting real high before reading quiz.  I thought about it, but then I didn't think that everyone wanted to be at Bullseye until like 3AM.  No, I thought that might be a bit irresponsible, and you know me, I take quiz very seriously.  So no, no stoney quiz, let's just get the usual drunk and stumble through, yeah?   This quiz, though.   Round One.  You only remain immortal if you stay in the

Johns Mansville
Charles

You guys, I'm opening up a gay bar, and I've got the perfect name.  Actually, I've just stuffed so much insulation by that name that at this point that I don't think I'll ever not be itchy again.  I signed up for a new arcade gig, and I knew that we'd be building out a huge space, I just didn't think of the day to day of it.  So I distract myself by thinking of dicks, apparently.  Just kidding, I'm always thinking about dicks.   This quiz, though.   Round Two.  Chumbawumba sounds like something you might do at a cruisy restroom.   Round Three.  Ditto "butterfly-stroking man-fish".   Round

Scarlet Spider is the Best Spider-Man
Charles

So I'm wall papering an arcade with overprinted, worthless 90s comic books.  Worthless in terms of collectible value, but invaluable in my heart for the nostalgia they bring.  I got into Spider-Man back then, so I love all that Clone Saga bullshit.  Marvel can retcon all they want, but Ben Reilly will always be my boy.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  The British always sound silly with their "lifts" and "lorries", but "rocket lettuce" sounds way cooler than arugula.   Round Two.  This fake Eddie Vedder voice didn't even really sound like Vedder, and then we had to be reminded of Creed?

It’s Lit!
Charles

Of course starting a new job is always exciting, but the work-a-day aspect of building out a 20,000 square foot space can quickly turn into routine.  You know what livens up the day?  How about a three alarm fire?  It's not often that I get to call 911 and summon what I'm pretty sure was every fire truck in Hillsboro.  No one was hurt, the damage was minimal.  Basically it was the best possible version of having your place catch fire.  Exciting, but maybe I'll just stick with painting.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  I don't see what's wrong with marrying a prostitute to save money, that's just sound financial

The Insanity Continues
Charles

  It's getting more intense, you guys.  Regrets and revels regarding brackets hang thick in the air.  People are shouting not only excitedly but now angrily about and indeed at these college sportsboys.  Encouragements or jeers yelled toward a teevee screen never fail to confound me.  So much mental effort poured into a contest whose outcome will effect nothing of actual importance in the world.  And yet, I'm the weird one for not being into it.  Go figure.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Want to feel old?  Fucking Friends started twenty-three years ago.    Round

Nice Weather, Isn't It?
Charles

  Well, I'm certainly not going to risk small talk about sports right now, am I?  I don't know or care one shit about college basketball, and I'm afraid to get an earful from someone who is just super crazy invested.  It's like they've gone insane or something.  So, what a nice day we had today, huh?  Nice break from the rain.  Yeah, I hear the rain's coming back, but that's Portland, right?  I'm looking forward to that one week of Spring that's coming up, you?   This quiz, though.   Round One.  There's nothing funny about Kellyanne Conway.  She is straight up some sort of alien lizard person

Reppin’ Bullseye
Charles

  I can’t think of anything exciting in my life to write about this week, so let me mention some other excitement I heard about a bit belatedly.  Our very own Budget Sex Toys made it up to Seattle for Geeks Who Drink’s eleventh annual Geek Bowl.  They did pretty not bad in the standings as well, considering that this is the mega quiz attended only by super serious quiz dorks from all around the country.  I heard that BST rep’d Bullseye as their home venue, and that brought a tear to my eye (and perhaps some salt to another QM’s mouth, what I further heard).  Good job on the big stage, dudes.   This

Shamrock Shook My Guts
Charles

Oh man, it's early March, that means it's time for a favorite treat!  The McDonald's Shamrock Shake!  A small's gonna be too small, better go with a medium.  What?  It comes in a clear cup with a bubble top and whipped cream?  Whatever, Mickey D's, put lipstick on that pig. This is a mint milkshake we're talking about, not exactly high class.  Yes, it's just as good as I remember.  I don't think that a medium is any bigger than it used to be, maybe my capacity for slurping down sweets has diminished.  Maybe it was thrown off by sharing my stomach with the entire plate of Pulled Pork Nachos I ate just before leaving the Bullseye.

Like Linus's Blankey
Charles

  So I'm in a fairly transitional period right now.  Work I sweat and bled for dissed me.  Dissed me repeatedly until I pushed back hard enough that it was time to find new work.  I've got new work, and probably more new work coming.  I mean, can't stop won't stop until I run a place, but the early stages are a bit tentative.  What I'm saying here is that when my life is in upheaval quiz is there for me.  You guys are my rock.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  I consider myself a pretty tolerant person, but if you don't like Lingonberry juice from Ikea you can just keep your mouth shut.

What Ungodly Hour
Charles

I got this new gig.  It's pretty great, everyone is super nice, they let me drive a forklift.  What more could a guy ask?  The only sticking point is that I have to get up at five in the shitting morning.  Like, it's quarter of ten as I write this and I am tired as fuck.  This is not my natural sleep cycle.  It would be more natural to me to sleep all day get up in the middle of the night stay up and then go to work.  Does that last sentence even make sense?  I can't tell, I'm bordering on incoherent.     This quiz, though.   Round One.  SYNLawn and XGrass are more properly brands

Been Subbing Around
Charles

You guys, I've been seeing other quizzes.  I know, I know.  But!  We never said this was exclusive, did we?  I mean, you guys are great, but sometimes I just want something new.  Have you even been to Scout Brewing?  The crowd is super nice and the beer is top notch!  Yen Ha Lounge is a secret hole in the wall with the strongest drinks that hosts two quizzes a week!  Don't even ask about Hawthorne Hideaway, I don't think you want to know where my feelings truly lie.  I might even be planning to run a quiz in Vancouver at Shanahan's.  Don't you fucking judge me.   This
