Happy Discount Chocolate Day
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  The only bad thing about today was that the chocolate at the store I went to was only 30% off instead of 50% off - which is a bummer because I am a massive bargain hunter at my core but I’ll take any discount, especially if that discount is on chocolate. Sugar is my actual life blood. Don't judge me - at least I know who I am!  Well, tonight was a glorious night of quiz - other than the fact someone tried to step to me about WWE. Seriously, of the things that you should not try to fight me on, WWE is at the top of the list. I absolutely love WWE and know far too much about it. When you

Smart Dumb People
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I realize that the headline here is an oxymoron, like how can a smart person be dumb? Well, let me just say if you are asking that question, you haven’t met someone who is super ridiculously smart - because those people are pretty dumb sometimes. I have really smart people in my life, like my brothers are so smart about a lot of things but there are some things that they make me feel like a genius because they just don’t get it. It is things like common sense that seem to throw them. And it isn’t that they have something that makes them not understand it, it literally is like they operate at such a high level

The Wicked Witch of The West
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know, there was a part of me that was like...we could make Wicked Witch of the West be a joke about the president. But, I’m not gonna. There is too much gross political grossness in the world that I think we just need to talk about a much better time like 1939 when The Wizard of Oz came out. Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favorite movies - I know, you’re shocked by this - but it is just such a good story and when you look at the effects they were able to do for

Once More, With Feeling
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Buffy the Vampire Slayer was hands down my favorite show the time it came out and is one of my all time favorites now. And if you don’t think that Once More, With Feeling is one of the best episodes you are definitely living in a fantasy world. That is one of the best episodes of television if you are asking my opinion.I will say, when they introduce Dawn at the start of the 5th season I was SO confused. I legitimately thought I missed a season or four but no, it was just

Overplayed Songs
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I usually don’t mind hearing the same song over and over. I listen to the radio fairly frequently so hearing something over and over doesn’t bother me, but I get when people are annoyed. It is like kids just saying the same thing over and over - you can only handle it for so long before you just snap. This is another reason I’m not allowed to have children, I would snap about that before I snap about listening to the same song for the 900th time. Well, tonight we had another glorious night of quiz. One of our teams did something I would literally never be able to do. Not if you

Thar She Blows: The Volcano Jokes Write Themselves
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! I am obviously not Amanda, but I had the privilege of being your quizmaster tonight. I think we had a grand old time at the Irish Rover. We discussed volcanoes, sang songs about addiction, and google imaged some echidnas. Are they adorable? Are the terrifying? No one will ever know. It is one of life’s great mysteries.   In the end, Tree ended up beating out Topical Cream by a SINGLE POINT for first place.

The Sun Came Up
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Now that the year of the plague is over, we can all breath a little easier. Although, I was asked what made 2016 so terrible and I honestly couldn’t come up with anything other than the celebrity deaths and the election - I mean, those are two pretty big things - but those were the only things that I could think of. Even on a personal level, 2016 wasn’t a terrible year for me so now I kinda feel bad for giving it such a bad rap. What about it was so terrible for you? What was terrible was that performance by Mariah Carey on the NYE show - I mean, good Christmas that was BAD. I mean, there

As the Year Closes
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

It is kind of hard to believe that 2016 is almost over but at the same time, hasn’t this been the longest year ever? I feel like a lot of really beloved famous people have died - which of course everyone is talking about. But you know which one got me? Carrie Fisher’s dog Gary. In case you don’t know, Gary was Carrie’s support dog - he went everywhere with her and was on the plane with her when she had her heart attack. I myself have somewhat of an emotional support dog, she isn’t clinically classified as such but she goes with me quite literally everywhere except for quiz

Merry Festivus
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I watched that episode of Seinfeld last night for the first time ever. I’ve known about it what feels like my entire life but I had never actually seen the episode. There is a couple episodes on every night but last night, I was able to lay my eyeballs on it. I must say, it was pretty hilarious and lived up to as much hype as I gave it in my head. Also

Krampin’
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  If you don’t like Krampus, you are wrong. That is a real bold statement to open up this shindig but I’m gonna stick with it. Now, I can’t comment on the movie Krampus because I haven’t seen it, I’m sure I would like it because horror movies are right up my ally regardless of whether they are good or not. But the concept of Krampus is amazing - he is a chill bro if you are a chill bro but if you are a dick, he is a bigger dick right back. That is a stance I can get behind for sure. Also, little kids are assholes 90% of the time - they need

Going for the Triple Double
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know, I really enjoy nights of quiz where we have three double point rounds - mostly because more points is always better than less, but also because it is fun to see your faces struggling with the decision to joker round 2 or not. I mean, you guys have this struggle every week and I enjoy it but on nights like tonight, it was even better. Really, I guess you could say I just enjoy watching people struggle with themselves because it is entertaining. Also entertaining tonight was those 8-bit Christmas songs. Here is

Whip It Good
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

You know what I love so much? Meringues of any and all kinds. Seriously, you put a meringue in front of me and I will have a chow down on it. I will say, I do not love spelling it – even in the two above spellings it was wrong at least twice on each of them. Thank god for spell check. I also really love deviled eggs and am very pleased that today has been created to celebrate them. I don’t think I ever realized that it was eggception though because I didn’t realize that mayonnaise had eggs in it. Well, tonight was a great night of quiz, the venue was decorated for Christmas which aside from Halloween, it is my favorite decorating time of year. It is so festive

Are We Okay?
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

I think that is a question that America just needs to ask itself, are we okay? The riots over the presidential election and the aftermath because of that election have made some serious dents in the pep in our step. America is a pretty kick ass place to live, so as I always tell you guys – be the people Mr. Rogers knew you could be and let's get along, shall we? You know what everybody loves, cake! Let's come together over some cake, whether it is eating cake or singing about it or talking about weird metaphors with cake (looking at you DNCE), we all have something we can celebrate with cake.

Love, Hugs and Other Kinds of Drugs
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

This has not been a great week for America. I don’t think anyone would think otherwise unless they are…well, unless they are very skewed in a particular direction. But there is enough talk about that in the world today, I want to talk and focus on other things and that is being excellent to each other. In a world where hate can be so dominate, we need to look for the people who are making small differences. A little gesture can go such a long way and make such a difference in someone’s day. For example, I get everything shipped to my office instead of my house because it is just easier and to me, safer. Well, in the last few weeks for some reason packages/deliverers

Halloween Hangover
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

Everyone knows that a hangover is something you get from drinking, I mean that is the really obvious hangover but the ones that get me are the holiday hangovers. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, a: you are sad and need more festiveness in your life and b: it is just like a drinking hangover but there doesn’t always need to be booze involved. I think everyone is really aware of the fact that I am a very festive person. Doesn’t matter what it is, I want to be festive for it. So these holiday hangovers are a very real thing to me. This week I just feel so drained because I had two Halloween’s this year. We did our Halloween party on Saturday, of course,

Halloween Dreams
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

I have a confession, and if you saw me at any point during this week it would not come as a surprise, but I absolutely love Halloween. I think it is so much fun and it also gives me an excuse to dress up. I think the only thing I love more than Halloween is dressing up. I mean, a theme party – that is my love language. I have a themed outfit for everything I do. This week, it is a Halloween shirt for every single day, for an ugly sweater party it is an entire ugly sweater OUTFIT, for Space Jam day at work (yeah, that was a thing) I purchased a movie authentic jersey. Don’t come at me with themed ware man. I also really love seeing other people’s creativity for Halloween.
