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
QM Colleen

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?

Rick Rolling Was the Less Horrible Goatse
QM Colleen

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

Putting It In The Right Hole Is Important...
QM Colleen

GUYS. IT'S ALIVE!!!!!! My laptop. I revived it from the dead. (Ok, everyone knock on wood for me again please.) Now I'm not technically supposed to talk about technological failures in my blog because reasons.... But I think everything went just fine after I collected myself last night so I'm gonna talk about it because I need to warn people not to do what I did. So as some of you may have noticed, there was a bit of a hum coming from my laptop over the speakers. Not really noticeable when music was playing but in silence it was pretty painfully obvious (at least to me). I have a couple of theories about what was causing that but I decided to just power through for

It's My Birthday and I'll Quiz Because It's My Job AND I Love You
QM Colleen

It was my birthday yesterday, guys! Thanks for coming to my birthday quiz! Even though most of you didn't really know it was my birthday quiz. I don't like to make a big deal about my birthday. I feel like telling people is like asking for attention or fishing for a compliment or something. Mind you, it doesn't bother me when other people to it. I guess I just like to deflect attention off of myself. Said the girl who talks into a microphone in front of a bunch of geeks at least twice a week..... I'm complicated and shit. But seriously, yesterday was a pretty great birthday. I didn't really "do" anything FOR my birthday. I just did stuff I liked. I went and shot part of a film

Gilmore Memories
QM Colleen

Gilmore Girls has a special place in my heart because watching that series (and rewatching it... and one more time...) was a thing that I did with my mother. To be fair, we binge watched a bunch of shows before binge watching was fashionable (TV DVD boxsets, yo), but something about watching GG with your mother is as magical as Lorelai's snow. My favorite memory was the night (probably in the summer or over a break) we were up late watching and sometime around 11 PM we decided that we really, REALLY wanted doughnuts. I mean, come on, there are only so many scenes in the diner you can bear before you must instinctively stuff your face with yummy pastries and wash it down with a gallon

Yes I am Gonna Rage About My Shampoo
The Brennagade

And for the second time in over 10 years, the worst possible thing has happened. I have used Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner to be not a totally disgusting person every day since starting middle school. They smell nice. They don’t break the bank. They have punny names. They used to have jokes on the back of the bottles. They’re a pretty great product. Until 2014, I was a staunch supporter of their “None of Your Frizziness” line. It smelled like tangerines and was the only shampoo that made my hair not look like total ass. Before I decided having a lot of hair was overrated and cut it all off because 5 year old me thought having a Mohawk could be cool

Mail Tiiiiiime
QM Colleen

I want to write about Blue's Clues because Blue's Clues is a gem of modern television. I think one of the things that I loved about Blue's Clues is that it was a children's show that didn't talk down to its audience. It's characters didn't do stupid things just because. They didn't make the characters forget everything that had been talked about over the course of the episode for the sake of doubling the length of the episode or getting kids to yell at the TV. It was a simple premise with simple stories but it wasn't dumbed down. Plus it taught you how to draw stuff. Which was pretty solid. I watched children's shows way longer than a lot of people because my family
