Get it TOGETHER Trisch
Amie

Greetings to all of the wonderful regulars over at Burkes! I apologize that your normal QM Kyle wasn’t there but am not THAT sorry because I got to spend my day with you fabulous people!   We had an amazing night of trivia, here are a few things we learned:   Only after it backfired did Arizona stop uber from using their self-driving cars.   Even if the bar has a bracket on the wall, over half of the teams will get the NCAA tourney question wrong.   People surprisingly know a lot about Hong Kong.   X didn’t exactly give it us.   No one watched the X games.   The

Your Total Comes To Three Mentos and Fifty Quarks
Kalkema

Hey guys! I know its still bitter cold and windy, but do you feel it? The change is in the air. I cannot wait for Spring. No more boots, no more hats, no more feeling like the icy fingers of death are wrapped around my... you know... lets just say I'm ready for the change and leave it at that.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned that the Joly Green Giant has a sidekick. We listened to everyone favorite song mashed up with less mind-numbing tunes. We found out everyone is a dumb whore. And that Hemingway feels good deciding not to be a bitch. I couldn't say portmanteau. Kugel better be atleast twice

Everything I learned about what is great in life I first learned from my parents.


My comedy comes from my dad who is the funniest guy I know. He would throw on Monty Python

records when I was a kid and laugh until he cried. He also introduced me to some of comedy's most

renowned classics.

 

Python? Check!

Martin? Check!

Carlin? Check and check!

I could go on, but you get the point.

 

So, if you find yourself enjoying my personal brand of humor, just know I stole it from my father 

and the hoist up a cold one for Bruce. :)

 

From my mother I inherited a deep love of books and movies. I have a personal movie collection of

300+ and my mother's collection puts mine to shame. I can talk movies for hours and its all due to my

dear sweet mother who has a special place in her heart for giant animal movies. Lake Placid, anyone?

 

So thats me in a nutshell. I'm a born and raised, comedy loving, movie nerd with a helluva Marvel Comics

collection.

Cheerio Bath: For When You're All Out Of Oatmeal

Hey guys! Its funny how even a relatively small turnout can make the room feel full. By god you guys turned it on tonight. I got sidetracked more than a cross-eyed train (Dad joke) and you do have the ability to make me laugh. It makes my job that much easier.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned you can buy Dead Sea mud. I also learned that John Wilkes Booth's doctor got life. We wondered about the famous bluesman Swamp Thing. We listened to some covers. We listed some NCAA teams and one guys bracket is not to be fucked with. One teams still thinks Bridget Jones wrote her own diary. I

Greetings everyone and thank you for an amazing night and giving me the honor of subbing in for the amazing QM Kyle (“Hi Kyle!”). It was such a pleasure sharing this sacred Valentine’s Day with everyone, I couldn’t imagine spending it doing anything else…because I am single…so…there isn’t really an option… Things that we learned are:   Sean William Scott was in Road Trip. Phil Dunphy is one of the greatest TV Dads of all time. Cupid rode a dolphin. The upper peninsula part of Michigan doesn’t touch Canada.
