But is it when it's spinning?
Amie

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. Apparently not everyone knows as much as I do about the majestic

Fifty-Six Herbs And Spices
Kalkema

Hey guys! A nice simple night of Quiz. Some healthy competition, some drinks and a few laughs are all you really need when it gets to be this time of year.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: You all learned where I was from. We learned that The Police are terrible at naming songs. One team thought Captain Morgan was wearing two eye patches which made me laugh. We learned Jager is a spice bonanza I learned that Gorsuch likes to fly fish... how wonderful. We looked at some middle children. We all got to remember "10 Things I Hate About You." I said Macbeth. We listened to some very excitable folk. I

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.
