A Night Time Supply Of Pudding!
Lisa Pizza

What a time to be alive! But then again, the Winchesters tend to not stay dead for too long anyhow.  I want first and foremost to thank everyone who came out last night! Literally, that was the most fun I've had at any theme quiz ever, because you're all so amazing and the Winchesters are so hunky.And pie! Let's talk about how this all played out! Round one was about everybody's dream car: Baby. And boy, did we start off with a fight. Let me tell you, I know this show. And I've been binge watching it alllllll over again, just to feel prepared. And without a doubt, that dog is named Riot. Sure, Sam tried to call it "Dog" but Amelia just wouldn't

Miss Jackson if you're nasty
Christie B

Happy World Series! Despite the big game, we had a solid constituent of quizzers ready and eager to have some fun! There were 2 new teams to Bethany Public House, which is my favorite thing ever! Couple quick highlights: I quoted an iconic line from Janet Jackson’s “Nasty”, and I don’t think anyone knew what I was talking about. When I read out the answers, I said, “Her first name ain’t baby, It’s Janet. Miss Jackson if you’re nasty”. I thought I was being clever; no one else thought so. We had an entire round about the Marquis de Sade, I watched the movie Quills on Netflix, which is loosely based on his

Spiders in your crevices
Christie B

Howdy friends! It’s getting close to Halloween, so naturally, I got spooked by a huge spider during my quiz. I, like, many others, am not a fan of spiders. In fact, when I got home after my quiz, I took a shower to make sure the spider wasn’t in my hair or clothes or crevices. What would you even do if you found a spider in a body crevice, like in your buttcrack or something. That’s an irrational fear that I face. Aside from the spider, we had a super fun time! Our video round today was about animated show theme songs. It was so fun and nostalgic, and I have been watching episodes of Doug since I got home. Does anyone want to get together and talk about the

A sloth bear is a real thing
Christie B

It was a packed house at quiz on Tuesday! I love when the room is super full, there’s so much energy, I think it makes it more fun! So, I learned today that a sloth bear is a thing. Have you heard of this? How have I been so out of touch for so long? I thought I knew about all of the bears, but apparently I was wrong. Let me tell you a few things about the sloth bear. They are native to the Indian subcontinent, and they are insectivores. They are super dumb looking and have wicked derpy faces. Now, let me share a few quotes from the Wikipedia article about these beasts. “They walk in a slow, shambling motion, with their feet being set down in a noisy, flapping motion.” “Sows

Thrill-thingy? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
Christie B

Sometimes, when I miss a call from my mom, I call her back, and when she answers, I say in a Lurch voice, “You raaaang?” This is relevant because there was a bonus question in last night’s quiz about Lurch and his famous greeting. Per usual, we had a super fun time at quiz last night. We listened to a playlist of songs from famous movie soundtracks, so had our fair share of sing-alongs. Last night’s quiz reminded me of one of my favorite children’s book series about Amelia Bedelia! Remember her! My favorite story was when she went camping with the family. When it came time to “hit the road”, she banged the pavement with a stuck. And

My patronus is a dolphin
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! Tonight’s quiz was a bundle of fun! Here are some of the highlights: There was a question about the Pottermore patronus test. In case you were wondering, my patronus is a dolphin, which I am very cool with. Dolphins are super smart and social and just generally dope, which is the best adjective I could think of to describe their general coolness. The audio round this week was a lullaby round! The songs were a bunch of lullaby covers of popular songs, and by the end I was actually yawning and sleepy. The funniest part is that 2 of my quizzers are expecting a baby soon, and they have just recently started listening to a playlist of those same

Shaking that donkey on the dance floor
Christie B

Hiya buddies! Another lovely Tuesday quiz night in the books! I was very excited to have one of my regular teams back from a long, summer hiatus, Rose Marie’s Jacket! They bring lots of energy and fun to each week’s quiz. Here were some of my favorite moments of the quiz: In round one, I read out 2 definitions, and quizzers had to identify the word. Here was the last one: “Derriere: A domesticated animal of the genus and species Equus asinus”. Almost every team wrote “ass”, which is the correct answer. One team wrote “donkey”. . . Now, I am imagining a hip hop banger about a sexy lady shaking her donkey

Isthmus-schmithsmus
Christie B

Hi buddies! Happy Tuesday! So, let’s talk for a second about the English language. Please allow me to vent for a few. Why do we have words with 4 consonants in a row? Isthmus is a dumb word, and I cannot make my mouth make those sounds in a row. I just can’t. It’s impossible. Can you say it? Please tell me you can’t so that I feel better about myself. Anyways, we had a bunch of fun tonight. I have one new-ish team that writes “Lebron” in for every answer that they don’t know. I had another team that thought the “Surreal Life” might have been a TV show on the Disney Channel. We had 2 questions about Mean Girls,

LaFonda Lopez and Crickety Crick
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! Gotta love a short week! Tonight’s quiz turned out to be super funny, due to some very impressive humor from participating teams. Here are some of the funniest things that happened. I had one brand spanking new team! After greeting them and telling them the rules, I rememded them of my name, and one of the tea members told me her name. Instead of saying, “Nice to meet you” or some other normal response, I said, “Thank you!” So that’s how I started my night. I’m awkward. I laughed OUT LOUD while scoring the visual round Scientific Flare. Picture #2 was a picture of George Washington Carver.

Poop poop
Christie B

Poop poop poop I’ve been waiting for a quiz round about poop. I’ve been a Quizmaster for about 9 months, and I’ve been looking forward to my first poop related round. It was a special day for me. Apparently I’m gross, and I don’t have that much exciting stuff going on in my life because it brought me such joy. Anwho, we had a wicked fun quiz tonight! Round 1 was Recently in Stuff, and there were two questions about the VMAs. Another appropriate question would have been “How many minutes was Beyonce’s VMA performance?” The answer is 16, which is a lot of minutes. But I’m ok with it because it was incredible.

Taylor&Elijah

Hey quizzerinos. Taylor here.  We made it! We made it to the other side of The Geeky Cauldron and we are all a little better for it. I can only imagine how many people are out rewatching and/or re-reading after reliving so many delightful details. When my husband and I started dating he had never read Harry Potter; he had only seen the movies.  He couldn’t understand why people liked Dobby, or (shockingly) why people liked Dumbledore. To him Dobby was just an irritating distraction who served no real purpose and Dumbledore was the guy who yelled at an overwhelmed Harry after his name was drawn for

Talk Dirty to Me
Christie B

Happy Tuesday y’all! We had a super fun quiz night tonight. Several new teams showed up to play, and we had a great time. A couple of things: Round One was Down and Dirty, which wasn’t as dirty as you might think. However, there was one questions that got a little bit racy, and I couldn’t really blame people for going there. The questions was, “Poison and Jason Derulo both had hits asking ladies to do what two-word phrase to them? About half of the teams wrote “go down”. Let’s be honest, that’s a totally fair guess, and it fit within the theme of the round. However, the correct answer was “talk dirty”. Get

Tuesday are the best days. No matter what happens during the day, I always have something fun to look forward to, and an icy glass of something boozy waiting for me. Today certainly didn’t let me down. I arrived at Bethany Public House and immediately ordered a nice big mug of beer. Got my quiz all set up. Threw on some Beyoncé. Bliss. Anyways, we had a great quiz. Another packed house! My other favorite thing about quiz is that I always pick up a few new facts. Here are a few of my favorite moments: TIL: Fraggle Rock originally aired on HBO. They had a wicked fun theme song. I think it’s time to revisit that show. I don’t remember much about

Christie B

Another great Tuesday in the books at Bethany Public House. I loved a lot of things about tonight’s quiz. Here's they are: The house was close to full! I love it when we have a ton of teams and the energy level is high. Round one was a rhyming round. Reading out the answers was super fun, because it was like poetry. I’m tryna be a spoken word artist. (No I’m not). Round three was Tri-Force. I read out three things, and you had to tell me what they had in common. My favorite was, “Mule, Brake, Stiletto”. More than one team wrote “heel” (the answer was shoe). So now I’m picturing cars going around in fancy “brake

Christie B

Happy Tuesday! We had a PACKED house tonight. 13 teams showed up to compete for the ultimate title of quiz winner. It’s super prestigious. Additionally, we had loads of new teams excited to challenge our regulars and compete for the big prize. Naturally, I chose this week to forget my computer. Here’s what happened. I am a forgetful, scatter-brained person. It’s in my nature. I’ve always been that way, and I’m fine with that particular reality. However, I recently bought a planner so that I could start getting my life more organized. Today, after work, I made sure that my quiz was ready to go, and then I started filling things into my planner.

Happy Tuesday! Today was a fun day at Bethany Public House. They had a wine stock-up sale with lots to taste, so naturally, I had to try a few before I started the quiz tonight. Super fun. Needless to say, it resulted in me struggling my way through the quiz. A combination of wine and sleepiness resulted in me saying “it’s weirded strangely”, which doesn’t make any sense. Additionally, I stumbled on several other combinations of words that normal people can say correctly at any time without thinking about it.
