Only Deadly If You REALLY Use Them Wrong
SonyaDee

Whoa, what a wild ride at Quiz this week! Y’all packed McCabes wall to wall and were having a rowdy-good time, for sure. I love high-energy nights at Quiz…I always feel like my best self in such environments. And I don’t have to wonder if you’re enjoying yourselves…it was apparent. I love making you laugh, but I can only do that if you give me some material to work with. This week we learned that the Assholes With the Baby are Dentists…or Doctors…maybe. They insist that Dentists are “kinda the same thing” as Doctors, but I’ll tell ya...I’m not scared of Doctors. We also learned that there isn’t a Loony Toons character

Don't Eat the Brown Ones
SonyaDee

Let me tell you a little story. A story about candy. In order to set up my sound equipment at McCabe’s Tavern, I have to walk through the kitchen to retrieve my supplies. I always say “hey” to the kitchen staff and stop to chat a bit if I can. They know me. I like to think they like me. This week, they had a big bag of “assorted” candy corn so I politely asked if I could have one. Later, when the food I had ordered came out to my table, there was a big pile of “assorted” candy corn on my plate. Those guys are so thoughtful. So I piled them up next to my hosting station to snack on during quiz. BUT…there were regular candy corn, mellowcreme pumpkins

Football-Shmootball, There's a Quiz to Play!
SonyaDee

Whoa! Some of you don’t watch football! Which makes for a special night for me. I was expecting a quieter night at McCabe’s Tavern this week because of the Broncos game, and that expectation was entirely unfounded, because you came out in force and didn’t ask them to turn up the TVs once! Thanks for playing with me, it was a really fun night. I have found your weakness. Or at least I’ve found the subjects that make you groan the most. Mathematics. Anything having to do with the Bible. If we ever have a question combining the two, I fully expect some of you to implode. My weakness on a Quiz team is music. I can’t identify anything post 1996, and even the

Shoot For The Five-Hole
SonyaDee

Well y’all got over the shock of school starting pretty quickly and came out in force for Quiz this week! So nice to see so many familiar faces. I feel like the beer was flowing a little more freely this week…I love a rowdy crowd. Really, I just love it when you actually laugh at all my dumb jokes. September is my favorite month. I write about the weather and my loathing for all things pumpkin spice when I can’t think of anything else to write about, so I’ll just leave it at that. September…aaaaaaah. Gosh, I just can’t stop gushing about how much fun I had this week! Y’all were ON FIRE. Someone thought “Springtime for Hitler”

el Chupacabra Took Your Baby...Teeth
SonyaDee

It’s rainy. There’s a nip in the air. Coffee was sent to us from a celestial being who wishes us only the most happiness. And the horror of pumpkin spice has not quite yet descended upon us. I love Autumn in Colorado…the way the air smells is downright cleansing. It’s the time of year I do the most cooking. Over the weekend I made a batch of Pesto from my homegrown Basil. I learned how and successfully created mozzarella cheese from scratch. This week I think I’ll bake something. I don’t cook all the time, but when I do, I do it right! This week was a special week for McCabe’s Tavern. It marks the first week of school back in session, which

Keep an Eye Out for that Tiny House
SonyaDee

Nothing like starting off Quiz with a belly-full of Mac & Cheese…especially when it’s full of Hatch Green Chilies! The food at McCabe’s continues to impress, and when you wash it down with a couple of Harp Lagers…all is right with the world. This week we had one of my favorite rounds…one of those smutty rounds where I get to make you all exceedingly uncomfortable. The Tinder profiles of fictional characters are only somewhat smutty in their own right, but pair them with my stellar acting ability, and it makes for lots of giggles on my part and lots of avoiding eye-contact on your part. Also, I have no shame. I tend to be one of those TMI people

Stream of Consciousness
SonyaDee

When it has been raining and you have to drive in Colorado Springs, be aware that potholes are invisible at night when they are full of water. Also, on a completely unrelated note, it should be socially acceptable to wear a bib in public at all restaurants. I started watching the FX show “Fargo” last night, and then had a bunch of bloody murder dreams. Last time that happened was when I binge-watched “Dexter”. Stupid Grasshoppers ate up my potato and zucchini plants. I consider it a declaration of war. I wish I could get as excited about the Olympics as so many of you. Like really…I just don’t get it. I mean, I’ve never

Like a Mergin
SonyaDee

It was ALMOST cold today! After a month of unrelenting 90+ temperatures, suddenly it’s cool, cloudy and rainy…fall is in the air. Can you smell all of the disgusting pumpkin flavored crap? I love fall because of the smell of the air and the contrast of warm sun with a cool breeze, but pumpkin is so awful. Just completely repulsive. I can’t even stand the smell of it. But with fall also comes HALLOWEEN. Yep…it’s only August and I’m already talking about Halloween…because it is my favorite holiday and I will talk about it until it happens, then I’ll start talking about the next one. My costume closet is unreal and I wish I could dress up in

The "Green With Envy" Burger
SonyaDee

There were soooo many butts at the Bob’s Burgers Quiz at McCabe’s Tavern this week! They were great sports hosting this event and they even put a “Green With Envy” burger as their daily special (Cheeseburger with Guacamole). The craft beer was flowing freely and the burgers were abundant. Bob talked to inanimate objects and made them talk back to him, Linda sang some goofy songs, we learned some things about Teddy we might have forgotten, and the kids came up with some crazy money-making schemes. All in all it was a great time and as a bonus, the wacky weather skirted us for once. While the rest of town was getting pelted with golf ball sized hail, we got nothing more

George Burns' Wife Wasn't Maggie
SonyaDee

Just when I think the writer’s room can’t possibly come up with any more Pokemon themed rounds, they pull of the best one yet…”Pokey, Mon” was a round on jail/prison and Jamaicans. I tend to respect a good pun more than many, and this one gave me a serious case of the giggle fits. Also, prisons are fascinating to me…I would love to go on a tour of some more famous ones someday…you know, as a tourist, not a guest. We’ve reached that part of the summer where the novelty has worn off and it’s just god-awful hot and sweaty and we’re ready for a break in the temperatures. I work outdoors in the daytime, and 90+ temps every day

Inception Breakfast
SonyaDee

I finally did it. I jumped in headfirst with my eyes closed and ate a Scotch Egg. I can’t say I regret it, but I probably won’t do it again. Merely because it was TOO delicious, and I don’t want to start something I can’t stop. But next time you’re at McCabe’s Tavern, give it a try…just to say you did it. Yes, my dress has Dinosaurs on it. Thank you. And thanks for joining me this week despite the downpour…it seems like the thunderstorms only come on Thursdays at 7pm…right when we’re all trying to get to Quiz. But ten teams tells me that a little rain can’t keep you away, and I know from experience that y’all

Photobombers & Waffles
SonyaDee

Not only did we have a rockin’ good time at McCabe’s Tavern this week, we had a photobomber. Actually, at one point we had some photobombers upstage the other photobomber. If you look closely at the photos you’ll see him, nonchalantly checking out his phone in the background of more than half of the pics. Or maybe there was a set of quintuplets that I somehow missed at quiz. Either way, I’m mostly happy about it because it’s the first blatant photobombing I’ve had in my blog pics, and I’m a huge fan of shenanigans. If you provide shenanigans, please bring them my way. The goofier the better. I’m slowly and steadily working my way through

A Quiz Has No Name
SonyaDee

I had a conversation about clothes with one of the waitresses in the restroom at McCabe’s this week. She is tall and slim, I am short and stout. We were lamenting the fashion industry’s misunderstanding of our particular body types. Apparently, designers think that all very slim women are petite, tiny little barely 5-foot-ers, and all plus size women are 7-foot-tall sasquatches. I mean, I’m not even like incredibly short…5’4” is kinda in the average height range, but there’s a store that sells jeans in XTall, Tall, Regular, Short and XShort lengths…wanna guess which ones are the right length for me? You would think XShort…and you would

Jeepers Creepers
SonyaDee

This week at McCabe’s, y’all witnessed the birth of a new me. A me who doesn’t wear glasses all the time. A me who, for the first time in 25 years, can see clearly. That’s right folks, this bird finally got contacts. My eyes are basically shaped like footballs, and even the strongest weighted toric contact lenses weren’t enough to correct my sideways vision. I had been told I couldn’t wear contacts…what I needed didn’t exist. I was lamenting this fact at the eyeglasses store the other day and the optometrist was all like “Well hey, let me take a look at those peepers…seems to me one of the contact lens companies recently expanded

Jalapeno Limeade
SonyaDee

It’s HOT, y’all! Now, I know it’s not cool to complain about the weather…there’s always someone from Dallas or Phoenix in the vicinity to tell you how hot is hot, and that complaining about a measly 94 degrees makes you a wuss. But I work outside for my day job, and I AM from Dallas, so I feel entitled to complain about the heat. But here’s a little something for you to help battle the summertime temps. I keep this in my fridge all summer long. Jalapeno Limeade 1C Water 1C Sugar 2 Jalapenos, sliced in half lengthwise 1C Fresh Lime Juice (approx. 8 limes) Extra water and ice Bring 1C water and 1C sugar

The New PA is Shiny
SonyaDee

I am so excited to be hosting Quiz at McCabe’s! Night one went perfectly; you were on your best behavior, I was at the top of my game, and the new sound system kicks ass. I ate some weird chicken that was like bacon. It was good. Good-weird. I drank some tasty beers. I shared a room with some smarty-pantses and we all had a blast. Can’t wait to get to know you all better…mostly so I can make fun of you. “What the Hell Did We Learn This Week?”- We learned that Canada has five times more doughnut shops per capita than the U.S. I guess they gotta stay warm somehow. Also, spelling twelve-letter words sucks…one team wrote “Anamadopeiah”
