OCTOTHORPE GO!
WillSalerno

It ain’t punctuation, yo.   There were between four and six “Pokemon Go” inspired team names last night, depending on whether Mike Tyson and Kevin Durant are considered Pokemon. I have nothing to contribute to that conversation, so let us move on to semiotics and orthography.   Which is the best team name spelling?   Hashtag Poundsign #Poundsign Hashtag# ##

South Bend
WillSalerno

Actually sort of fun. Blog is late because I had to come to South Bend, Indiana for a thing. Turns out this place is small, but has Geeks Who Drink at South Bend Brew Works! Good for them. I am certainly not a GWD cheerleader, but on Thursday I witnessed the return of former Hefley's regulars who recently invited me to their wedding, almost surely because I am directly responsible for all romance in Midtown. At the same time, longtime regulars The Decepticons are now decimated because their lovely ringer is moving on to GrownUp Kindergarten or something. But she did swing by after quiz with some random guy hours before her

About Last Night
WillSalerno

Suck it, 30 Rock. First, thanks to Katherine for taking pictures last night out of pity. Welcome to Houston, where our stadiums drop the top, home of the candy paint, and chock full of pitiable quiz masters. Second, We Thought This Was Speed Dating brings up an interesting question. Is there a difference between quiz and speed dating? Probably won’t get you any action, but there is a chance, I guess. Has

About “Last Night”
WillSalerno

Morgan wasn’t at quiz. Morgan is the only possible way that Fuzzy’s Quiz could go on once LE left. But Morgan had a thing. So Ben was there. Ben is fine, I guess. Completely unrelated, here is the Google Voice transcript of a voicemail I had on my phone in the morning: This is 1 800 Daddy Tech hotline and I'm here to give you that data to call back and any time goodbye.

This guy owes me pictures
WillSalerno

Hunt him down. To fill everyone in, I don’t like taking pictures and I am awful at it, so I outsource it to a quizzer in exchange for a drink that I pay for out of my own pocket, in case any acronyms are worried. Last night the GENTLEMAN to the left took pictures and consumed his drink, but I do not have said pictures. I am sure it is a simple misunderstanding, free of malice and subterfuge, that can be easily remedied. Too bad. That is no fun. QUIZZERS, BRING ME THE

I Write Words and You Read Them Now, Good Job
Stefanie

Thoughts on a pub quiz in a taco shop: Your nachos looked delicious. And yes, I'm talking about your actual nachos. Get your mind out of the gutter. Shout out to the girl who offered me some delicious nachos. I declined, bc STRANGER NACHOS, but that was a super sweet offer. Anyone who offers me their delicious food can totes be my bff. Your margs looked delicious. Big ass giant margaritas. Frozen. Rocks. Swirl. The menu even said CHAMPAGNE MARGARITA WHAT EVEN IS THAT, GIMMEE.  Ben is the best bartender, give him all your money. Don't argue with me about the legibility of your handwriting, motherfuckers. I decide what I can and cannot read. Decepticons,

Well hi there, thanks for stopping by.

You look lovely today.

My name's Stefanie, I'm from Dallas originally and have been hanging out in Houston for four years and love this giant, beautiful city and all it has to offer. 

I went to Texas State University and hung out for a while in Austin, so I guess you could say I get around.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and lying about things I enjoy.

Feel free to bring me presents, buy me beers, and tell me I'm pretty.

The Wonderful Thing About Quizzers is You're Not The Only One
Stefanie

Wow! You guys! How much fun did I have last night? Answer: A fuckton. A literal ton of fuck was had. And not just by me. By you. And you. And you and you and you! First off - team names on the fleeks. I can't believe how creative you guys were! Actually, I can. Because you are wonderful, and smart, and charming, and funny. So, why wouldn't you have the best team names in all of Quizlandia? Congrats. You win! Secondly - We talked about anal much more than a girl cares to talk about. In public. With strangers. Good times. Third - Shots, shots, shots, shots. Did I mention shots? If you didn't get one of my awesome prizes (I hope you did) then hopefully you got

I am not even going to address the LE situation.
WillSalerno

LIWTH quiz is odd. Hosted Quiz for Stef at LWITH last week. Everyone was polite. After round 6 I swear they formed a single file line to turn in their sheets. Multiple people asked me if I prefered them to hand me the sheet or for them to give it directly to Robert (Stef’s scorekeeper). At Fuzzy’s I get answer sheets thrown at me, and often they are damp. Not wet. Damp. And not always with water. They are queso damp. Speaking of Robert, wtf. Stef just has an incredibly capable guy who sits there and does all the hard work? I asked him twice if I could help

Shots won’t occur again, fyi. No jokes in this blog, shit is too real, and I need everyone to focus. First, if you have ever quizzed at Fuzzy’s, you need to show up this week and pay your respects to our nearly departed. Second, if you have never quizzed at Fuzzy’s, you need to shut up this week and play. Third, we only had 5 teams last week, and it was so bad I had to supplement everyone. I blame Stef completely.

I Learned The Things
Stefanie

Thing's I learned at Fuzzy's: You were really scared that I was going to suck. (You were wrong.) Rockets in 13 gave me hope that the Mavs can do it, too. And I guess the Spurs. ALL TEXAS TEAMS IN 13! None of you know who A Tribe Called Quest is. That was your assigned homework. And NEVER confuse ATCQ with Vanilla Ice again, you fucking heathens.  You all knew LFO. Please get your musical knowledge in check. Will's microphone sucks. I can't speak German. Well, I already knew that. This is Texas. I speak Spanglish.

Official Geeks Who Drink Blog Of The Week!
WillSalerno

Yup, that’s a thing, and I just took it for my blog. Hosting Quiz on Cinco de Mayo at a Taco Shop modeled after a 6th Street shot bar? Please see pictures. You know why it sucked? Because it was uncomfortable. LE the Minx was uncomfortable behind the absurdly busy bar. I was uncomfortable surrounded by 5 dudes buying shots for one girl. Rockets in 9 were uncomfortable with skipping Round 7. Mc Tin Tin was uncomfortable outside listening to problematic

No One Cares About The Academy Awards

Want proof? Liza Minnelli is the only Oscar winner whose parents both also won Oscars! Cate Blanchett was the first actress to win an Oscar for playing another Oscar winner! The Oscar Statuette is 34 centimeters tall! If you play the Oscars backwards, you can watch your favorite movie stars taking Oscars away from their peers! The official name for the “Oscar” is the Academy Award of Merit!

Will’s Weekly Rush Hour Recap
WillSalerno

It was v. good, obvi. Now, quiz blog. Rockets in 6 won, but I didn’t let them change their name. THAT’S WHAT YOU GET. Decepticons second, and they won the audition pre-round, so we did shots of Unicorn Sweat. Thanks, LE. The Queen is 90, Prince is Dead took third and it too far too soon.

Hey, You're Not Our Real Quizmaster
Tygrr

Sorry to catch you guys off guard, but Will had something come up at the last minute that he had to take care of. Rumors range from him having to dig a well for a village in Africa, taking photos in Japan after the devastating earthquakes, delivering a twin calves all night long, and being a bouncer for the Democratic debate in Brooklyn last night. I suppose we'll just need to watch CNN to find out.  I hope y'all didn't mind me dropping in. I saw LOTS of familiar faces, so I felt like I was at home in a way. I'll happily host for y'all again. I mean there's cool food (I had the beef fajita nachos), cool drinks like hummingbird water in a ginormous chalice, and a big
[ ...more... ]

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once when I was 8), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. There's also another cat named Snow who is more interested in looking out the window; I guess he's looking for white walkers. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks). And it appears I really like parenthesis.

Breakdance In Case of Emergency
WillSalerno

A handful of tips for Fuzzy’s Quiz sans Will. I can’t make quiz this week for reasons wholly unrelated to Rush Hour airing Thursdays 10/9c on CBS. Usually when I am not at quiz but also not watching a Silver Screen version of a 1998 Action/Comedy classic, I just let some other jackass host, and this week will likely be no different. However, when I return from my own business that has nothing to do with a film franchise that grossed almost $1 Billion worldwide, I would like Fuzzy’s Quiz to be exactly how I left it. So, here are the rules. 1. The Decepticons

WHY DID NO ONE SAY ANYTHING
WillSalerno

Rush Hour is on my TV now! Kung Fu and Buddy Cops on CBS! As usual, I was half-assing pub quiz at Fuzzy’s Tacos last night. Lots of teams, maybe 15, so I was focused on getting done quick. But in my periphery, on a corner TV, I notice something very odd. A show is on CBS. During primetime. Lots of the karate. No white peoples!
