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. We had a lot of things to celebrate tonight at quiz, I mean a three-way

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.

The Great Debate
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

I’m gonna be real honest, when I heard the final debate was on a Wednesday night I was thrilled because I then had a very valid reason for not watching other than, “This is going to be an actual nightmare”. I never get political in my day-to-day life, I really don’t. Mostly this is because I don’t care that much but also I find politics to just be mean. Come election time, every other commercial is just mud slinging and like I always say, we need to be the people Mr. Rogers knew we could be and that is NOT who he thought we would be. The only thing I will say about this actual election is that it is….terrifying…and I’m going to leave it at

Life in 3D
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

3D is stupid. There, I said it. I don’t like movies that are in 3D, especially those that are doing it for no reason. There is a lot of people who get sick watching 3D movies which I don’t have that problem, I just think it is stupid and a gimmick. Now, don’t get me wrong – I love a good gimmick. I am literally a marketers dream because I will buy into almost anything but for some reason, I just can’t get into 3D. You know what else I can’t get into? Super proper grammar (note: I didn’t even spell that word correctly on my first try). I just am not good at proper English I guess, even that last sentence isn’t a complete one. I obviously

The Case of the Kardashian Mystery
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

I don’t particularly understand what is so enthralling about the Kardashian clan, I mean they are rich and they do a lot of ridiculous stuff and I will admit to having watched the show on numerous occasions but those occasions were normally because it just came on and I was too lazy to change the channel. I will however say that what happened to Kim in Paris is absolutely horrible and is not something that should be made into a joke. Even when she herself is basically a joke, being held at gunpoint is never a joke. I will say though, the people making the coloration between her and Ryan Lochte made me laugh a lot. You know what else makes me laugh a lot, the majority of

Giant Pandas Are The Best
E-Parks

Hey friends! Welcome back to the blog. Emily here, taking over for Amanda for the evening to charm you with my witty and hilarious recap of Wednesday night at the Irish Rover. We had a great night where we discussed current events (Brangelina’s split), politics (well, we mocked Donald Trump), and religion (hey, there was at least one question about religion). Who says we just drink beer? We’re bettering ourselves and our communities! In round 8, we had a question about giant pandas. I recently moved back to Denver from DC and you can’t help learning
