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…

THAT BEAVER IS JUMPIN’
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

I’ve bumped Master P numerous times at the fair Nomad Bar, but last night after a question about lil’ ol’ him, y’all were quite emphatic and it was like freshman year of high school all over again… then this morning I looked at my TimeHop app and it informed me that “Make Em Say Uhhhh” was released 19 years ago today… so…     BALLS, I’M OLD.   That said…   Hi Nomad frands!  That’s “friends” just spelled weird.

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

Closing Out The Year With A Bang
Rev. Lindsay

Now you see… that’s what the bar is SUPPOSED to look like.  It’s just a shame that I was stapled to the Couch Of LoveTM scoring all them answer sheets so I wasn’t able to run around and rub elbows like I prefer.  But that’s fiiiiine.  I’m so glad we could close out 2016 together!  We had 24 teams once everything was said and done.  Kyle spent his birfday with us.  Save Betty White featured our newlyweds Gabe & Meredith, back from their honeymoon.  Candace from my Wednesday night quiz came in a wrecked shop with her team.  Auld

ISTO IN THE HOOOOOUUUUUSSSSSEEEEE!
Rev. Lindsay

I love the fresh meat.  I don’t love that my brain and mouth do not agree on how to say some words.  Let’s take Isto, my trainee, for example.  For some reason, my mouth wants to put an “H” in the middle of his name, so instead of “Is-tow” like it should be, my dumb Texan mouth is saying “Ish-toe”… Either way, Isto is pretty freakin’ great and I can’t wait for him to be unleashed on quizzes all over town.   You know who else is pretty freakin’ great? Y’all.  All y’all.  You make me happy.  We had a drawing contest last night and your challenge was to draw

Cuddle Puddle On The Stage!
Rev. Lindsay

Reports of temperatures from 28-35° means an empty patio and a bar with everyone sitting on each other’s laps.  But we like it this way!   This Is Your Brain On Hugs was finally back in their full roster glory and took second place to celebrate!  Random.org selected Tiffany from Hugs for the winner of the FB bonus prize too and she picked the punchy ball things that I can’t believe didn’t move faster.  Order of Triad and Jenn snagged that first place spot and made their mamas proud.   I greatly appreciate the litany of team names with a shout out to my catch phrase

Yes, This Is Doggo?
Rev. Lindsay

I pretty much haven’t stopped wearing my dog hat since yesterday afternoon when I found it under a mountain of old order forms, flyers, notepads, and assorted detritus on my desk at my day job.  Since I office from home or am driving all over the place most of the time, I don’t see my desk at the real office much, and other people use my desk and play with my toys while I’m not there, so who knows where the dog hat has really been this whole time.  Anyway, I scared one of the team’s mascots with said dog hat pretty badly, but once I took it off, the pupper mascot liked me again.  It also may have been the popcorn I fed it.  Doggos are weird.   A

Hey, Nomad!! Thanks so much for letting me quiz with you guys. This is seriously one of my favorite venues in town so I always jump at the opportunity. Let’s get into it! Round 1 was a semi-tribute to Leonard Cohen featuring questions about stuff that “everybody knows.” Question 1, about the second largest state in the U.S., should have been a gimme considering we are literally inside of said state but a couple of you weren’t quite so sure. I guess we’ll forgive you this time. I loved the question about Gonzo’s true love, the chicken Camilla. One team said it was the Swedish
