Gosh, Lady!
Who Brought that Girl?

Hey, quiz was swell tonight! It always is! I love Norwin! I love Wyman’s No.5! I love you! Weeeeeee! Has anyone been to Mile High Flea Market? I went yesterday. Oh, the people watching is so good. Also, I bought a sweet hat for $8. It's straw. It's kind of ugly, too. So, I love it. I also bought some salsa from a sweet lady who reminded me of my mom. I could not say no to her. Nope. It's pretty good salsa. Her eyes lit up when I asked for the hottest one. I'm crazy, you guys. I also think "you guys" has been used way too much over the past few years, so I typically stay away from it. But it was perfect for this instant. You guys! I have a bit of a rant. Can we talk about

I’m So Quizzy, That’s Ok Cuz So Are You
Who Brought that Girl?

Did you all have a lovely weekend? I most certainly did. I had a grand Sunday with Quizbot’s wife and QM Andreams. You know them both. You just may not know it. Anyway, we had brunch and pedicures. I felt really bad for the lady who was doing my feet. I haven’t had a pedi in over a year, so my feet were not looking too good. Ahh, sometimes you just need a good scrape. So, now, feel free to check out my feet. They’re all dressed up in “Cajun Shrimp.” I hope you all know that we missed Tony Danza’s birthday a few weeks ago. So, you should take a moment to silently wish him a happy belated. He turned 66. I love Tony Danza. Always have, always will.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Who Brought that Girl?

Don’t you just love our weather here? I have never seen so many friends post on FB about broken windshields. No good. The bright side was that we quizzed last night. So, so very bright! Also, Curtis and Andrea had their baby! He’s a sweet little guy. I can’t wait to meet him. Are any of you on the Nextdoor AP? If you are not on it, you’re missing out. It’s like a FB for neighborhoods. On crack. It brings out some real shady, crazy people. It brings out neighborly love, too, but of course I’m not concentrating on that. Anyway, one lady recently got so annoyed with people posting that they found a dog under the “Lost” headline that she

The Day Millions of Americans Finally Learned About Andrew Jackson - but Not the American Who Needs To
JamieAnderson

Today is May Day, and so I’ve been reading about Lucy Parsons, an unsung hero(ine) of the US Labor Movement. She and her husband were activists in Chicago; when he was executed in 1887, framed as part of the Haymarket Affair, she carried on the fight, and helped found the Industrial Workers of the World. She exemplifies one of my favorite quotes from Hamilton - “I’ve seen injustice in the world and I’ve corrected it”. Her birth and childhood are somewhat unclear but it seems likely that she was born as a slave, and she was of mixed African American, Mexican, and Native American descent. Oh, and in the 1920s, the Chicago police described

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream. 

 

 

 

 

* The Dinosaur Heresies, by Robert Bakker -- out of date now but an excellent read just to watch someone with ideas exploding out of their head shake up their field.

Reunited and it Feels So Good
Who Brought that Girl?

Sports ball kept us apart for a few weeks, but we are back! On top of being reunited with you all, I (and some of you regulars) was reunited with Sarina! Sarina is an OG quizzer here at Wyman’s. She went and moved to CA a few years ago, but we all get together whenever she is in town. Tonight was one such night! So, welcome back, Kotter! Ooh, and Mookie was back tonight! He went on a European vacation like the Griswolds. What a night! It’s also been a while since I ate dinner at Wyman’s. And daaaamn was it good! I enjoyed the chopped salad. If you haven’t eaten it, order it! And their ranch is so delish. Speaking of food, quizzers Susan and Steve bought me some

Oh, hay! So good to be back! I was bummed to miss last week, but I caught a bad, bad bug. Quizzin just was not in the cards. Anyway, a big shoutout goes to Andrea. Don’t you just love her? I do.

Why Not?
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

I am just really excited to be here. I like it here and seriously, I live down the block. I need to come play. In the near eight years, I have been hosting, I have yet to see Ellen host. I know she is awesome. You have told me as much but, she also has a bedazzled pink microphone. Which is pretty darn cool. Anyway, quiz. I am impressed with your knowledge of Stravinsky and ability to decipher Google Translate movie quotes. Saint Petersburg and Picasso and Cool Runnings, and Speed. Oh yeah! And Jean Claude Van-Damme/ Pretty much it was amazing! And we had a tie between In Godzilla we Trust and  Johnny B. Good … Embalmed.

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

I Just Quizzed All Over Myself
Who Brought that Girl?

Yeah, I did! It was nice to be back. I flew home to SC to surprise my mom for her birthday last week. It was a pretty swell trip. I was able to sneak into one of those comfort plus seats on my flight back. I love how they try to upsell those seats for $60 even up to the very last minute. Nope. Anyway, I had leg room and a power outlet, so I was a happy little camper. We had a grand quiz tonight! And I even got to drop my taxes off. Being a QM has had many perks, including have one of my quizzers do my taxes. Yeah! “This is Us.” Who watches it? Man, I love that show. Tuesdays won’t be the same after tomorrow’s season finale.

The Alt-Night Rises at Wyman's No. Timelines Merge.

It was a raucous Monday at Wyman's No. 5! We had a grand total of nine amazing teams that took to our Quizs this evening! The teams were: Caramel Shaft, Night Cheese, My Hairy Nipples, Naming Things Makes Me Feel Vulnerable, I'd Let Obama Tap My Wire, Bad Choices Near Schools, Organic Ketchup, Harry & Llyod, and OOPS. Oops originally had no name for the third round as they arrived in the third round and didn't get named OOPS until the fourth round.Round 1 was an interesting collection of dates, followed by a vaugue movie synopsis that would also spell out the first three letters of the name of the movie.

We Love Heather!
Who Brought that Girl?

If you were at quiz last night, you understand the title. I'm glad I recorded the Oscars. I just fast forwarded through a lot of it. But I'm glad I saw the ending. Fantastic. Poor Warren though. I'm sure he's a nice fella, and people were accusing him of screwing it up on purpose. Anyway, I toggled through the Oscars and Walking Dead. You all know I love TWD. But man, this second half of the season has been pretty rough. Like, it's been bad. I know lots of people have been saying it is bad forever, but I've always been a big fan. I'm slowly starting to drop off from it. Oh well. Do you all like John Mayer? I know I've read he's a read dbag in real life, but I really loved Room

Who Brought that Girl?

What a fun night! This week marks nine whole years that I have been with Geeks Who Drink. Nine years. Hot damn! What started as a temporary subbing gig turned into all of this! Quiz has become such a large part of my life, and I have made so many friends through being a QM. Who would have known that one of my quizzers from my very first night at Wyman's No.5 would become one of my best friends? Through the years, I have watched friendships develop before my eyes. I've become close with so many quizzers and Quiz Masters. I've been to a quizzer's wedding. I've celebrated NYE with quizzers. I've quizzed with quizzers at other venues. It goes on and on. It all leads back to Wyman's. I have some

Let’s Be Frank: What Weren’t We Smoking?
The Cuteness

So I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ellen for most of the 9 years she’s worked with Geeks.  And I’ve always adored her fine bar and quiz.  I mean, there’s really no other way for me to be okay with being assigned some nameless number.  I am now, and shall always be, 1554 at your service.  Filling in for Ellen was a charm tonight with such polite gentlemen and ladies in the house.  I mean, here we don’t worry about manners really, just as long as the pizza and sausage are hot and fresh.  I learned today that no person is impervious to the dreaded cat hair, but we have soldiered through and come out the other side even wiser

Best described as one of those "substitute people," Heather can be seen filling in for most any Front Range QM.  (Except the crazies in the Springs.)  In her spare time she enjoys long walks on the beach, embroidery, and coming up with cryptic hints and clues for her substi-quizlings.  

Things to know about Heather if she subs for your quiz?  She's prone to buy you a beer if you mention something from this bio, and has also been known from time to time to announce for "The Derby" as CSI seems to think it's called.

You Blinded Me With Quiz. And Beer.
Who Brought that Girl?

The Super Bowl commercials that I saw were pretty good, except for that creepy T-Mobile one. It made me feel...uncomfortable. Super creepy. However, I suppose their plan to draw attention to the company worked. Just in a yucky way. Ewww. I don't need to see that one again. What a game though! I was out a little too late on Saturday night, so I skipped the party I was supposed to  go to. I couldn't do it. Anyway, I swapped between the commercials and a show called "The Seven Year Switch." It takes couples who have been married for seven years and they swap spouses for two week. The new couples live together and everything. It was entertainment, I suppose. Anyway, there is one new couple

AK-47 (because I am loaded)

  Hello Geeks at Wyman’s! Nice to see you and quiz with you. Ellen is out kicking butt and making deadlines. She will be back with you next week. Tonight, we paid ode to Mary Tyler Moore, delved into some moody songs, and hit some key numbers.  Mary Tyler Moore was awesome. I remember watching her on Nick at Night with my Grandma and Grandpa. It was fun to watch old shows with them and most the shows were better than TGIF. I did and have confused Carol Burnett and Moore. Not sure how or why but, glad to know it is somewhat common. Thanks for playing and have a great week, Andrea

Is it a Membrane?
Who Brought that Girl?

  Howdy, pals! Last night was a grand old time. There were so many new faces mixed in with the old! This always brings a smile to my face. You know what else does? When people don’t want their picture taken. I always like to think they were once featured on America’s Most Wanted. Or perhaps they weren’t supposed to be at quiz. I’m sure the real answer is much more boring. They just don’t like their picture being taken. Fine.   The couple sitting at the bar made me chuckle.

I love the 90s. I mean, there were a lot of terrible parts about it, but as I spent the majority of my own childhood in the 90s it holds a great deal of nostalgia for me. One of my very first real CDs was Third Eye Blind self titled. I received it as a gift for my birthday one year from a friend I haven't seen in years now. To this day it's still easily one of my top ten albums of all time. The band was full of talented individuals who all brought something to their sound. Sadly over the years the band has been largely taken over by frontman Stephan Jenkins. He early on pushed out song writing partner Kevin Cadogan through their contract. Several other members have left the band over the years
