If Only Trump Had Something Other Than a Balding Head
Tina the Bold

It was one of those long Wednesdays where I caught myself almost dreading the Quiz.  In a life of hectic bartending, every moment on one’s couch is a coveted and sacred moment.  But I perked back up, and we hit the ground running tonight!  Mick even stayed to play the Quiz, and we had our own Mayor of Poundtown crushing it despite feeling a little under the weather.  With round one, I was already giggling:  to think of Syria and Jordan speaking Hebrew, and to fly into Jesus-H-Christ Airport… maybe in an alternate Universe, but not today… alas.  We kept the music to those two-decade old tunes of magic known as 90s Pop, and were soon all casually

And Remember, Stella: If You Sniffle and Slander Enough, You Too Can Become President.
Tina the Bold

As it seems to be lately, I came to Quiz after yet another cold/flu thing.  Here’s a simple survey question for everyone:  Did anyone get a flu shot this year?  If so, does it seem to keep anything at bay?  Well, at least on a Wednesday, I can guarantee that Krystal makes a delicious and reviving Hot Toddy!  Let’s hear it for the gentle gifts of a bartender on these cold nights when all else seems so far away. And so the Quiz began— as it always will— with a smile and some cheer for everyone.  It was Stella’s 3rd Birthday, and it was wonderful for everyone to greet her with smiles and joy.  I hope she remembers

We Are So Critical With Our Feedback.
Tina the Bold

Let’s start by noting that we had a gorgeously snowy night with this Quiz.  Driving?  Hope you all were safe!  Walking?  Was it just a wonderful delight?  We could all feel the deep chill every time the door opened, but it was just so dang pretty.  This Wednesday was my little sister’s Birthday, and she got a spectacular winter snowfall for a treat!  For something strange, let’s note that NO TEAM JOKERED Round Two.  On my end, that looked really weird—we had plenty of high scores, and not a single Joker.  I can understand how bleak the Quiz appeared, as we started with critiquing Mariah Carey and moved into playing

Art Museums Are, Arguably, Public Libraries
Tina the Bold

WHAT A QUIZ!  I cannot recall a Quiz wherein two teams scored a perfect score of 96!  What kind of magic came together to make this happen?  We had a few new players and a lot of silliness; the Quiz started with the Year in Stuff, so it was a contest of memory for many of us.  By round two, Deme suggested that Nickleback play at Geek Bowl… it was a low enough point that we took a shot to level it all out.  I stand by my statement that “Nickleback” is never the answer—and I thank you all for amending the band’s name with dick drawings.  While Schafer, Maggie, and Greg learned that this Quiz thing is a bit

What Does Santa Smell Like?
Tina the Bold

Wow!  2016 is sliding into a fast close, and while we all await the changes of 2017 with a mix of fear and incredulity let’s enjoy this final week with a beautiful sense of awe for the Yuletide.  One way to start this is to welcome Macaque on the Shelf back to 1st place after a more challenging Quiz.  For all who fell scant points behind, bear in mind what I warned:  “Nickleback” is NEVER the answer.  Maybe try an alternative in the future, and stick to sweet “Die Hard” references.  Or take a moment to regroup and drink some whisky.  Whatever works for you and your team will leave us all with a better

I May Have Gone Full WoW By the End...
Tina the Bold

Welcome to another awesome Wednesday at Sloan’s!  We made record time, and come teams simply crushed rounds.  To Ashley and Morgan:  you both are so on-point!  Congratulations on another clean sweep for 1st place.  To Krystal:  your Hot Toddy making skills are so delicious.  To J.R.:  I’m glad your parents used bourbon to cure all your ailments, and it’s too funny that it took until college for you to realize that people actually drink and enjoy whisky.  So with my cold in tow, and with a warm drink in hand, the Quiz began.   Also, when was the last time we played Classic Rock all night long?

Is a New Laptop or ALL THE SCOTCH a Better Answer?
Tina the Bold

*A note to all:  thank you for your patience as I struggled in the land of electronics.  My Sony Viao is, ahem, a 2007 piece of doom and destruction.  It's practically a dinosaur, and almost lit on fire.  They don't even sell those battery packs any longer.  Luckily, I could find a way to coax it into life-- I might be an ancient lap top whisperer, and my services can by purchased for a fee and with a lot of colorful curses.* Whew!  This has been a busy start to the Festive Season, and I can’t begin to explain how nice it is to sit down and do the Quiz.  Sloan’s is all cozy and cute with the ornaments delicately hung; everybody is

Thank You For Singing and Making Merry!
Tina the Bold

To start with, let me thank all of you for making this Birthday Quiz so fun!  Hugs were everywhere, and we all had a good time laughing over silly answers.  Lex was the winner of the Beer contest, and thus left the Quiz extra happy with $40 in free drinks at Sloan’s.  If we translate that into late-night Happy Hour, then that’s a winning from which much whisky can be procured! It was a busy Quiz, and we had over ten teams—this made Sloan’s cozy and a little rowdy… well, maybe the Birthday shenanigans led to the rowdiness.  Also, I re-met a woman named Katie, who recalled me from back in my radio days with Entercom!  That pre-dates

This was a heart-warming Quiz, everyone!  When we discussed our start-time change, the crowds, and how to drink whisky… A win!  Thank you to all, and enjoy our start to changing lives one Quiz, one Friend, one Whisky at a time.  This might be of Fibonacci.   Let’s enjoy the next week:  we have a Feast and a whole lot of Family.  Some will arrive as Friends; some as new Babies.  We have a chance to agree and learn; there is a lot to reify between ourselves.  So let’s get back to the Quiz.  I was so happy to see so many of you made it where early and a table counts.  There were a couple of odd moments, but we

Skull Poop Emojis FTW!
Tina the Bold

Well, I think we found a pairing slightly more uncomfortable than Trump and Pence:  Fetty Wap and “Ace of Spades”.  For those of you unfamiliar with Motörhead, take a moment to listen to some pure, unadultered Rock’n’Roll.  Then return to the World knowing that you have participated in the raw beauty of human sensuality.  If you still feel like Fetty Wap lives up to this afterwards, then please try to educate me next week.  I stand by my initial assessment. Now, I did admit that I know the words to the “Broccoli” song… and some of you have been around for Phil Collins, too.  Let’s all take a moment

Autocorrect Still Does Not Recognize the Word "Trump"
Tina the Bold

How to start a critique?  Or shall I just Trump the rest of the blog such that everyone will feel equally “shlonged”?  Let’s go for it, as we know it’s how everything will be delivered for the next few years.  So, as the Trump will say it…  … “We had this Quiz.  It could have been UGE”… but then the bartender was a Nasty Woman, and they gave HER a microphone- a mic, people, and WOW … This is how we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!  A woman gets a mic!  HELL NO!  Let’s fix what we fixed when I was involved, ok?  I have a plan, and trust me, it’s great.  I remember

"Firmness, Commodity, Delight"-- How a QMMF Hosts Quiz!
Tina the Bold

Ahhhh, what a difference a week makes.  Thank you to all who Quizzed tonight!  I really need(ed) all the support I can get; your hugs and understanding are what makes us one of the best Quizzes, the best friends, and the safest places around.  For those of you who don’t know, I was drugged and assaulted late Sunday night; I came to Quiz with a black eye, a black jaw, and a general distrust in humanity.  To have everyone reach out with love and strength—that is what will rebuild my faith, and what will lead me to a clean and full vengeance.  To all:  be safe, and be aware that this is a more common experience than we’d all like to acknowledge.

Wiccan Chicken-- Now with Photos!
Tina the Bold

Well, this Wednesday arrived and I noticed that I still haven’t posted that photo of “Trump” that Thom suggested last week.  It will be with next week’s blog, as tonight features the amazing transformation of the glorious Wiccan Chicken.  To note:  I am no longer with cat, and am feeling unstressed about life right now; thus, no pentagram needed, and no candles to thwart whiskers. Let’s rehash that recipe, for starters: 1 4.5-6 lb chicken Olive oil Salt, preferably Kosher Heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.  Rinse chicken and pat dry.  Fill your palm with EVOO, and rub the chicken down.  Coat

Rumchata, Corndogs, and My Disregard for American Politicians
Tina the Bold

It’s been my pleasure to Quiz you all during a National Presidential debate, particularly when we can all immediately see those fantastic Trumped-down book report tweets afterwards while enjoying $3.00 whiskys.  Our topics were as diversified as Puppets and Politicians—wait, that’s not really diversified, is it?  I recall a certain eight years of George W. Bush wherein a National Disaster or two and an extreme economic slump were all justified with an Iraqi War and the “Re-Branding of America”—remember that idiocy, Condoleeza Rice?  Dick Cheney?  And now the Republicans offer the United States of America Donald Trump?  That’s

Grab Her By The Oxford Comma
Tina the Bold

Oh, the Oxford Comma!  How I adores thee.  Although, let’s be honest:  I have a deeper love for the semicolon, the wonderful putter-together of so many independent clauses.  Let’s all take a moment, too, to rejoice in the comedic and interstitial life that a split infinitive provides.  Ahhhhhh… Grammar came to me without my bidding.  Yes, Quiz.  This one has summoned all that I love in one round.  Thank you.   We were rather unfortunately graced (split infinitives, here I come!) by Michelle Bachman, but at least this buffered us from the inevitable; Donald Trump’s voice is still abandoned by the Geeks Who

The Edict of 2nd Place

What a perfect start to a Quiz:  it’s already dark outside with the smell of frost in the air; Phil actually brought a jacket to Quiz; and Hallowe’en is in full effect at Sloan’s.  For all of you Libras out there, you were truly born at the best time of the year! And then Round Two happened… One team had a perfect Joker, and everyone else averaged a score of five.  Such a slaughter!  What a humiliation we all shared, knowing that at least four people smugly captured 1st place to no contest.  Same Shit, Different Moderator conceded that they Quiz all over town, which is kind of like super studying
