QM Colleen

Here we are again. Another blog where I am going to tell you small anecdotes about things that the quiz reminded me of. Soon you will know my whole life story. But not today. I once had trouble differentiating the voice of Cher and the voice of Clay Aiken on the radio. She has a manly voice, he has a feminine voice. I was an odd child. I'm pretty sure there's a story about my sister when she was little.... she was playing with a worm in the sandbox and, well, the worm died (as worms in sandboxes are wont to do). She then brought the worm to my mom and started crying, saying "Slimey's dead!!!!" Poor Slimey. I love Matt Damon. I was totally wearing a Breaking

QM Colleen

I had a weird thing happen on my way to quiz, guys. So you remember that we had that Round 7 about movies with euphemisms for real swears? You remember the A Christmas Story one? As in Ohhhhhh, Fudgeeeeeeeee (Only I didn't say fudge)? Think 5 more seconds into that scene. The music that's playing, do you hear it? That classical piece was on the radio when I arrived at quiz. I'm talking, as I pulled into the Village Gate parking lot that violin (or maybe cello?) part hits. The utter stomach drop feeling that song embodies as Ralphie Charlie Brown shuffles back into the car, knowing his father was going to ruin his night. Ok, so it wasn't that weird. But a slightly strange coincidence,

Whatever, you something me.
QM Colleen

No, I haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy 2 yet. Yes, I did play part of the soundtrack at quiz tonight. So... it's almost like I saw it.... right.... right?!?!? Whatever, you loved it. I'm also really digging this sitting while running quiz thing. Strike that, my back is really loving it. And my calves. And my feet. My body is happy. Whatever, you love it. I have a confession to make - I totally did not catch on to that pi digits mnemonic for an embarrassingly long time while reading the quiz. I'd never heard it before. I definitely spent more seconds than I'd like to admit trying to figure out what single digit number starts with the letter "M" (because "May").

A Loose Stool of Hope
QM Colleen

I just started watching Bill Nye Saves the World and I have to say... I'm a little under whelmed. Let me first say that I think I made it half way through the episode before I had to stop watching, so know that my opinion is based upon very little. I am sad that he started the series with a climate change episode. I'm on board with his message, but I wish he would have saved that episode for a little later on. You see, I'm familiar with his views on climate change and that's the main topic that has put him in the spotlight of late. So I've heard it time and again. I want to hear something new from Bill! That's why I was glad he had a NEW show. NEW. Plus, he's

Alas, Gilded Cats
QM Colleen

Do you ever dream that you own a piece of clothing that doesn't actually exist? That happened to me recently. I dreamt that I was getting read for something and I chose an outfit. I put it on. I looked back in my closet and realized - OH! I have this other totally cool shirt I should have worn instead. Ah well, I thought, I'll wear it next time. AND NEXT TIME NEVER CAME BECAUSE IT WAS A DREAM. I know that you're thinking yeesh, it's just an imaginary shirt, why are you distressed so? Let me describe it. It was a 3/4 sleeve silk shirt. The background was a muted red, kinda like tomato soup, and it had gilded, multi-colored cats embroidered all over it. GILDED CATS. You're

Pokeweakness
QM Colleen

I played the Pokerap last night and I want to tell you about my childhood dreams. I used to want to be able to sign the entirety of the Pokerap. I would watch the ends of my Pokemon VHS tapes that played just one verse or so with the volume down a little bit. I'd rewind and watch again. I'd sing/rap under my breath. For some reason, I could not do it. I used to do the same with the main theme song and with Reflection from Mulan, because, Hell yeah. Those I was way better at. For some reason, I could NOT NOT NOT get the Pokerap down. Now you know about my failures. We're practically family. First place last night went to    E  F P

Twin Peaks Yes Please
Julie

I made all my coworkers take the Meyer’s-Brigg’s test today and we were looking at notable folks who shared the same personality types as we do. As an INFP I share traits with a lovely bunch of folks including but not limited to Bjork, J.R.R Tolken and Mother Mary herself but, but but but, most excitingly, David Lynch. I love me some David Lynch. Eraserhead made me so uncomfortable I loved every second of it. The music of his flicks are my ambiance of choice. My one true love of his, however, the apple of my David Lynch adoring eyes, is Twin Peaks. When I found out we’d be doing a Twin Peaks quiz I think I replied to the email about it within moments and bought my Log Lady

Mmmm.... Throat Spray....
QM Colleen

You may have noticed that I put my coat on in the middle of quiz last night - well, I basically got hit by a train. You see, when I arrived at quiz I thought I had a common cold, and a minor one at that. But throughout the course of the evening things went downhill and I ended up with a fever and the shakes and getting every cold remedy I could at Wegmans. So what I'm really trying to say is - wash your hands, boys and girls. Thar be dragons. Oh and by the way, Cloraseptic is freaking phenomenal. I never really like using medicines that just treat symptoms like that but boy did I need some throat numbing spray last night. And this morning. And right this very second... *Menthol

If You're Doing It Right, All Cheese Is Hard
QM Colleen

Remember when we talked about border collies at quiz and I said my blog would be about dogs? HERE YOU GO! So before quiz I worked at the Amerks game where I vend beer, if you didn't know. This Sunday was supposed to be the bring-your-dog-to-the-arena-so-it-can-shit-everywhere day AND I was going to have to miss a birthday dinner for my Grandmother to work it. I had horrible images of me slipping in some sort of doggily fluid and smashing my head on the concrete steps (especially where they change pitch for no reason). I was in a rotten mood when I showed up, to be honest, because I figured I was missing an important family gathering to serve a near non-existent crowd nothing

In Which I Do Not Fix A Car
QM Colleen

You'll recall that I forgot to put up a Facebook post for quiz this Sunday. You'll recall that I mentioned I was fighting with my car. Here's my harrowing tale. You remember the first full day of the snow storm last week? It took me two hours to drive home from work. It was about 6 miles. 5 of those miles were down without windshield wipers. You see, when I reached the Klassy Kat, the Kurse of the Kat took hold of my car and the wipers just stopped. Halfway through a wipe, chilling in the middle of where I need to SEE THINGS, my wipers were as useless as a.... useless.... thing..... I pulled over to see what I could do. All I could was push them out

I just got my order of Girl Scout cookies the other day. I have been stuffing my face. I've had them for breakfast. I've had them for lunch. I've had them for dinner. I'm a very healthy person, is what I'm trying to say. But seriously. Girl Scout cookies are the shit. I know everyone already knows this and already thinks this.... but I'm here to give you the definitive stamp of approval. Whatever addictive chemicals they put in those suckers.... 10/10, will buy every year. You know what I also really enjoyed? Boy Scout popcorn. Now THERE'S a less popular opinion. Everyone hates on the Boy Scout Popcorn. Yes, it was like 30 dollars for a tiny can of

Only Leslie Knope knew what she wanted to be when she grew up.
QM Colleen

So lately I've been saying this thing: Oh man, I get to go work tomorrow. Of course I always said that about quiz (well, usually... I am, without fail, happy to be here once I am here for sure) but now I have a day job and I feel that way about IT. It's not like I used to dream of becoming what I am doing when I was a little kid. In fact I was the little kid that would disgustedly tell you I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up because I was too young to possibly know that. Dude, we had to do this project once in 5th grade that was a future timeline of where we would be in 5 years, 10 years, 50 years, whatever. I think we did a similar thing in 7th grade.

Screeching Weasel is my safe word.
QM Colleen

I will not write about the Oscars.... I will not write about the Oscars..... We'll see how I hold up. So.... at work we are doing this walking challenge thing. You know, where they count your steps and you compete for... something. They haven't actually told us what yet. But I am super paranoid that I will be the weak link. You see, we're competing on departmental teams and they use the AVERAGE steps (per day I think?) to determine your team's ranking. I didn't think about that being the case until I signed up. TOO LATE NOW. I work a desk job. I'm not really sure how to get steps while sitting at a desk for 8 hours. Lots of coffee breaks. And pee breaks.

The Bork of Music

We need to have a conversation about The Swedish Chef and that round last night. We've had Swedish Chef rounds in the past. I gotta, his rendition of Stayin' Alive was all kinds of awesome. The reason I was so pumped is double:-As far as I know, this is the first Swedish Chef round in a while.-IT WAS BROADWAY <insert jazz hands here> Some of you know me and that I act and things, so that part should make a whole lot of sense to you. I basically lost my shit listening to those clips before quiz. I'm tooting out own horn. SUE ME. Also, how fitting was it that The Sound of Music was an answer last night?

There were two things in the quiz last night that I wanted to tell you a story about. I was running low on time so I thought I would save them for the blog. Guess what... THIS IS THE BLOG. Storytime! Wee. First - I went to highschool at Greece Odyssey. All of the other Greece highschools are awesome, Greece themed mascots. Titans. Trojans. Spartans. What were we? The god damned Leopards. In fact we USED to be the Snow Leopards but a very smart someone decided it would make us look slightly less like a Lisa Frank folder if we dropped the snow. Why did this happen? Who hated us. Well, who hated us is a story for another blog, but we did
