Lindsay, Kavi, and Maran
chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

Wow you guys, just wow. We had THE BEST FUCKING TIME last night!  It started as the amazing QM Lindsay, stepping in as my SK. QM Alyssa was off WINNING a karaoke competition! Excellent. It was also QM Kavi's bday, 29 on the 29th. Golden shower! And my lady love, Emma's BF, Maran, was in town. It was like the perfect storm of quiz. We had a blast at quiz, then we headed to Ego's for more bday fun! We sang her happy bday outside the bar. Awesome! We also had quiz! We had a round on Finland, Norway, or Sweden,

Wow, Mike, you really got me there.  I love that movie, and I love it when it's on the quiz. Spencer loves that movie too! We talk about it a lot. He was playing last night and I think he teared up a bit because he was so happy.  What fun last night!!!! About 20 teams, and Fallopian Boobs were there! I haven't seen them a long time. And they haven't used that team name in forever. Thanks for coming out guys! I'm sure Jeavon misses you too. She's all the way out in Montana, living the dream. I miss her too.  Anywho, we had a great quiz. Round 3 was Dame Straight, you had

Over the Bra, Past 10 on a School Night
chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

I know you guys don't get the title, so you should ask QM Alyssa. She has ALL the answers! I was back after 4 weeks, and Alyssa was back after a couple weeks too. Amazing team back together! And we had the best time. My Dad showed up, and hung out with us. He followed up the Barry Goldwater quote in Round 3 with, "In your guts, you know he's nuts." Well played Dad, well played.  We had great time back! It wasn't too hot. And there were so many dogs there. One dog, Scully, showed up with a cone on. It was super cute. Her owner let her come up and say hello to me. I was like "this dog is so cute, she wins! Everyone go home!" Libby

Free Yourself From the Tyranny of Underpants and Denim
Professor D

Y’all, jeans were probably a mistake tonight. For that matter, so were underpants. It’s freakin’ hot.   But you know what WASN’T a mistake? Coming to quiz tonight.   (Yes, excellent segue, Gerald, you totally killed that one.)   QM Anna and I tried to keep it entertaining for you, and I think we did a decent job of it! I asked you questions about the weather, about sausages, about America, all kinds of things.   Some of you thought that Wyoming had 98 Representatives in the U.S. House. I still find this idea hysterical, Wyoming as a voting bloc taking up almost twenty

During the day, I encourage people to buy beer. At night, I host pub quizzes and I encourage people to buy beer while asking them random questions. Jobs are weird. My uncle used to call me "professor" when I was a kid. I'm not really a professor. I drive a truck that might be older than you. I do the best Hank Hill impression you'll ever hear, unless you know Mike Judge. I haven't updated my Wordpress blog in a really long time. I live with my wife, Deirdre, here in Austin. She's a badass floral designer and excellent lady.

Going Down in a Blaze of Glory
Metal Gretel

This weekend has been brought to you by binge eating and gluttony. Why do I say that? Because quite a few of us QMs including myself and Kavi have thrown money on the line to see if we can get fitter. Why am I doing this? Well, you've seen me on that stage. I want to look as hot as Kavi-kins does in those tights and the first step is slimming my Thunderous Thighs! I will definitely miss the grand entrance I can make when sprinting but the slimmer  ones will put me in some sexy pants that I will literally be able to can in. Confidence is everything, folks! After what seems like TWO LONG MONTHS (it was maybe like one and a half) Our glorious Chelsea

Unsolicited Richard Pics
Metal Gretel

Y'all, it's been a weird adventure. A long while back we talked about posting my dating misadventures here and I've got a nice story for you today. Pull up a chair, get comfy... it's gonna get a little weird. So the story starts with a dating website. One of the basic normal free ones that you're probably on if you're not in a marriage or committed relationship. I met a seemingly normal guy named Ben. Ben is a third year pharmacy student at UT. I'm in pharmacy too, we have a common ground! Ben seems very eager to meet me and we both have similar interests and that website said we were very compatible. I'm chatting with this guy for a couple of days and we decide to meet for drinks.

Don't Dallas My Chelsea
Metal Gretel

Top of the Afternoon/Evening to ya! Last night was an incredible evening as we all decided that Tim was the worst and everybody said "fuck that guy." (NOTE: Tim was, in fact, actually really cool). I know this blog is coming to you nearly at my deadline, but that's because I was scuba diving and eating BBQ all day long. I occasionally have to balance work with fun and fun totally won. I hit my 50th scuba dive today and that was super awesome. I'm literally writing this blog between diving and celebrating my diving! I saw a shark, a sunken diver, swam through the tunnel of love, and tested my ever (slowly) expanding patience! RJ was me last

72 TEAMS! Wow! That was so awesome! Thanks to everyone for sticking around and to all the QMs that helped! I know we went way over 2 hours, but we HAD to do a costume contest! And it takes awhile to get all those teams scored and enter in their points.  I love Archer! I watch it A LOT. I have seen every episode at least 10 times. At least. Except Season 6. I have seen those like 3 times. Every time I want to watch, I start from the beginning. Since I work from home I can do a whole season a day! That's a lot of Archer. To me it's the show that I can watch all the time and not get tired of it. I mean, don't you feel that way? So! We had enough Kreigers to do a CLONE

ARCHER COMING SOON! (Phrasing!)
chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

What a night!! It was hot as balls, but Opal's had their new misters on. Wish they were some on the stage! I know you guys were hot, but on the stage with those lights, wow. I had to switch to a cocktail because my beer was getting hot too fast.  The misters did start raining on you guys. They turned the fans off, but the misters were still misting. A few teams had to move, getting their answer sheets all wet. We always have extra! We had 26 teams! Awesome! It was great! Certainly gave me and QM Kavi a workout. But we still finished on time, maybe a couple minutes early. Even with my technical difficulty. I have been using my iPod for music and

At the very least, no one attempted to kill the Malaysian prime minister
Rev. Lindsay

As the host of the dearly departed quiz at Opal's Davenport, hosting anything at another Opal's is like coming home to your parents house... after they move into a new place. Smells the same. Same furniture. Same faces. Different building. In short, it's comforting and makes you happy even if all your Skid Row posters aren't in "your room" anymore.   16 teams braved the potential downpour (that didn't happen... for the record) and we were snuggled up inside with some fine folks. Wolftrap (neé Richie Rich) won himself the email bonus prize of an Edgar Allen Poe air freshener. I assume it's not really a "freshener" because I bet it smells like rotting

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person. 

Buy her a shot of fireball to avert the pain of this bio writing.

Go play her quiz at Silo on 7th on Tuesdays at 8PM and at Nomad Bar on Thursdays at 8PM.

Alyssa's Hair Smells Good

22 teams! Awesome! With the weather being unpredictable, and it's hot, everyone made the trek to Opal's. And it was a blast! QM Alyssa and I were back in action! She wasn't as drunk as last week. Which was good, because you made her work for her chicken strips. I love that. Work it! Did you all call, text, or see your fathers today? I did! We have QM brunch every month and June always falls on Father's Day. So we go to the same place every year. It's a tradition! This year, my dad totally came. He had some mimosas with us, and we had a nice time. A few QMs showed, the others were too hungover, or something. It happens to all of us.  Anyways, on

Game of Boners and a Bride to Be!
chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

Hey gang! Wow, what a Saturday! I started the day with waking up pretty hungover. I was at a bar Friday night and drank too many $2 margaritas. But it was awesome! Until the morning.  Then I headed to the Game of Thrones quiz. We had it at 2 venues, because we knew it was going to be huge. We had about 60 teams total. Which is excellent! One venue gave out like $500 to the winners and the other gave out $185. The winnings are based on the team count. But we had a blast! I put up a couple of pics from that. QM Evan was Evan Snow for the day, and QM Anna wore her best GoT dress. And we all sweated our balls

Bo$$ Yoga Playazzz
Metal Gretel

Typing things absurdly is never my forte'. But there were two teams that certainly caught my and QM RJ's attention Saturday night. First, Bo$$ Playaz knocked it out of the park in the entertainment from dancing the Gangnam Style dance during the R7 break JUST BECAUSE, and for being total nerds. They came in second place overall but first in my heart. I totally stereotyped them about getting all those google questions right, and I was totally right, but I was wrong in that only one of them was an engineer. I hope they come back because I'm hella curious about them all!    The second team that caught my eye (and

Fake Out
chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

Hey again! So it rained a bit and then people were freaking out. Was supposed to rain all night and pretty hard. After it rained for about 20mins, it was smooth sailing. No rain! It's about time! Although, we'll all be complaining that there's no rain in a couple weeks. Summer's here! We had a great and dry time. Dry dry dry! I hung out by the pool most of the day Saturday, even when it rained. We just stayed under an umbrella.  I also hung out by the pool on Sunday. Been doing that a lot lately. I love it! My gf, Emma, and I just hang out out there a lot. Sometimes we're just hanging out. Playing a game, or she's reading. It's super relaxing.

chelsea@geekswhodrink.com

What is with this rain?! I mean jesus! Since Opal's has a bunch of windows, that's all you can hear. Rain, hail, wind. Most of the elements.  We had Kim, filling in for Alyssa while she was in Vegas singing her little heart out. She's an award winning karaoke artist. She is! Ask her! Kim was great, she always tries to get the place hyped up.  We quizzed you on Grody to the Max, you guys did well on this. But round 2 Eat, Poop, Sleep; Repeat, you guys did terribly. The high score was an 11 that only one team got, and no one jokered. Good call. Everyone did much better on Random Knowledge.

That's right, I said it. What?   Heya gang! After 2 weeks away from you guys, I was finally back! And I had a blast! With my hetero life mate and fellow QM, Kavi, as my porn hungry SK, we quizzed you and had some drinks, laughs, and singing.    In the middle of the quiz, Kavi started looking at porn on her computer. Every now and then she would turn her screen towards me while I was asking a question, and it was just littered with dick pics, money shots, and assholes. It was super distracting and hilarious. I couldn't through some questions without laughing.    Her obsession
