Switzerland, Swaziland… Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off!
Rev. Lindsay

If you know why I say that, then you know.  No need to dwell.  But I’ll bust my own lady-balls about it all day.   Instead let’s talk about my new best friend Charity, from The Sunburned Buttholes.  Not only did we have a delightful chat last night, today while I was at a work lunch with five of the top-ranking officials at my day job, Charity was at the same place, making eyes at me the whole time I’m supposed to be working and serious and stuff.  <wink face> It’s just another note about how small Austin really is still, after all these years.  As a natural born Austinite,

We Got $500 With This One Simple Trick!
Rev. Lindsay

In a week filled with do-gooderness (see: GWD’s week-long quest to raise money for Planned Parenthood) we had a little slice of the do-gooderness come home to Nomad with a Quiz For A Cause for the Autism Society of Texas. And do-gooding we did!  Between all the generous donations of the players, non-players, and even the bar staff(!) we raised a nice round $500 for AST! Regular Nomad player Kiki works for AST and reached out to me months ago to organize this QFAC

Thanks Lindsay! Now We All Have The Piojos!
Rev. Lindsay

(That’s Spanish for “lice”) (I’m pretty sure we don’t though) (If we do, we’re all in this together)   So yeah!  As I was heading to Nomad last night, I checked my mail to find a box from Caribbean Joe, one of our Quizmasters in Arizona.  Back in March, I tried to steal his fez while we were at Geek Bowl.  I was denied, but he told me he would send me something some day.  That something was a Walgreen’s brand granola bar and this Louis Tully hat.  So, since I received it right when I was en route to quiz, naturally I wore it most of the night and made everyone else wear

I Was In You!
Dav

  Hey there quizzlings! Thank you so much for being such gracious hosts! It has been over 2 years since I last helmed the quizmaster couch at Nomad and a lot has changed. First, they went and put AC up in that joint! Why the fuck wasn’t it there when I ran the show? Thanks Miguel! There used to be BBQ in the back; now there’s pizza? Neat… Oh yeah and the sound finally fuckin’ works! You have no idea what a leap that is! When I hosted, 2 or three times a night the speakers on the back patio would die because of a funky short that would happen if the volume got too loud. I actually know exactly why but don’t wanna bore you with the technical details.

Any Day I Can Do A Tenacious D + Peaches Set Is A Good Day
Rev. Lindsay

Regular readers of the blog are familiar with how once every few weeks I have a moment where I’m rushing against the clock to get my blog posted on Fridays... I’m having one of those right now.  I was out late chatting with players, I’ve been working all day between my real job (pizza catering) and doing other GWD things (hosting a private event in the middle of the day), and now I’m trying to hurriedly get on the road to go to the FanExpo in Dallas since like… ALL OF MY FANDOMS WILL BE THERE… Like freakin’ Tim Curry and most of the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast and like… half of the cast of Firefly…   ANYWAY.   So,

I Think Your Friend Is Doing Randy Newman
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Well, hot damn! Thanks, Nomad, for being kind and welcoming to a sub who has to fill in the very big shoes of Lindsay.   What did we learn?   Ask nicely enough and I’ll play a Shania Twain song for your boss. Glad I could help make someone’s night.   There are some seriously talented artists at Nomad. We celebrated National Dog Day with a pug-oriented dog drawing contest. It was, for the most part, a tie. But we awarded the win to Paint That Shit Gold. Check out the pics in the sidebar.

Bit Of A Day
Rev. Lindsay

Blog, part one.  Entitled: “A Fangirl’s Manifesto”   Lemme tell ya a thing or two.  You might recall from multiple random FB bonus questions, the sheer amount of time I’ve spent fangirling on mic, endless references in blog after blog, etc etc etc… I’m a bit of a Lin Manuel Miranda fan (bop bop).  So, if a team names themselves “Lin Manuel Miranda Rules” at my quiz, in my home bar, it’s safe to assume they are doing it for my amusement.    Welp.   A team did just that, claims it’s

I went to quiz and now I'm signed up for Therapy
Baby Bear

What a fun night! It always feels great to be back at Nomad bar. The place really knows how to make me feel home. Hope you all enjoyed the Gummy Bears and Sour Worms...sorry they didn't come from Colorado this time...but Frontier Airlines can get you up there cheap, if you don't mind a school bus with wings that charges you for fresh oxygen! There were some TRAUMATIC rounds tonight and I want to apologize specifically for making you sit through Chris Martin singing anything. Who green lit him covering anything? Who sits at a table and says, "I love Billie Jean, I'd love it more if Michael Jackson sang it!" Also Round 7 was cruel, and my favorite round of the night.

That Corona Came With Salt
Rev. Lindsay

The street Nomad is on is Corona and it’s in the Corona Center.  Last night some teams found out that the rounded edge of the penis is called a “corona” and then Jeanie reminded us all that that kind of corona arrives pre-salted.   I love opening a blog with an extended dick joke.   And then I made another one right there.   Last night was a good ‘un!  We saw a YUGE spike in teams as well as the visitation of two of the top Austin teams (The Solid Gold Answers and The Hobo Goat Family) and the re-emergence of This Is Yo’ Brain On

Yeah, The Physics On That Chicken Ain’t Right
Rev. Lindsay

Last night’s little side game was “how would you cheer up the grouch in your life” and Lisa Marie knows how to make people happy, so she went and authored some answers for each of her team mates… now this isn’t against the rules of my made up game but either way, the end result netted her teammate Gregg some prizes from the giant prize bag.  He went for the more-for-less route and grabbed a rubber squeaky chicken, a silly putty, and a super ball… which their other teammate Jacob probably had the most fun with.  Fourth teammate Jane was the

Brak Said To Never Trust A Monkey, So I Don’t
Rev. Lindsay

Because this one time I hired a monkey to take notes for me during quiz so I would remember what to write about in my blog. I would just sit there with my mind a complete blank between questions while the monkey scribbled on little pieces of paper. At the end of the night, I had to sit down and write my blog but then I did stuff like change my tire because there was a screw in it and it was flat, and then I went to sleep… Then it was 7PM the next day, and the voice in my head said, "Dude. Your blog needs to be done in an hour and the flu your husband had earlier in the week is now settling into your body. You should really start typing." So I wrote a blog that said:

And Other Anagrams Too!
Rev. Lindsay

Last night we learned more about Ricky Martin than we wanted to, more about real diseases and conditions than we wanted to, and most importantly, heard more Coldplay than anyone wants to.  At least I assume as such since Shaved Pony threatened everyone’s lives due to that Coldplay song in round two.   So, earlier on Thursday, I found a tweet from Colin Mochrie (of Whose Line is it Anyway) where he points out the Evil Cheeto (#45, Drumpf, He Who Shall Not Be Named – but not from fear… from he makes me wanna puke) has a name that anagrams to “Lord Dampnut”… now I can only call him that from

YOU ALREADY KNOOOOWWWWWW
Rev. Lindsay

So way back in October when I went to New Orleans for QM Con, I found a Big Freedia “In-Your-Pocket” noisemaking keychain.  I purchased it for a friend as a tourism present and have failed to give it to him every time I’ve seen him between then and now (roughly a million times), so now I just carry it everywhere in my purse so I remember to hand it to him when we see each other.  The result is a Big Freedia yelling things at odd times… frequently… and last night, into the mic a few times.  Besides, an “EXCUSE – I DON’T MEAN TO BE RUDE” from the Queen Diva is probably better than me shushing people all the time.   Aaaaaannnndddd…

Rev. Lindsay

  Once again, I find myself writing my blog at QM Chelsea’s house and the conversation behind my head is rife with one liners, so I’ll leave my favorite one as the headline and traipse right along into our actual run-down of the evening. Thank you all for being part of our SEVEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY celebration! …and my two year anniversary at Nomad.  We had cake and games and snuggles and top hat and monocles and YOU.  SK Melissa painted a sweet Godzilla which was won by Sean Q. for being the closest to the pin about Godzilla, Alyssa got the FB bonus question, and FingerGuns

Frozen Assets Indeed
Rev. Lindsay

From the time I left my house to the time I arrived at Nomad on Thursday (approximately 45 minutes) the temperature dropped 30-or-so degrees.  I wish I was kidding.  But clearly we made the most of it.  We had at least four teams that tried to be Vikings and stay outside, but ultimately the fantastic Nomad staff brought some outdoor tables inside and we snuggled up real good and proper.     Thanks for making our first quiz of 2017 utterly fantastic!  I always get pretty pumped in January anyway just because it is the anniversary month of Nomad becoming my home quiz… that’s right.  In a mere two weeks, it’ll be our two-year
