The Teapot from Murder She Wrote
Rev. Lindsay

Well, we can’t have 26 teams every week, but god bless the 18 teams that did grace us with their presence.  We love you long time!  My favorite was the team that answered “The Teapot from Murder She Wrote” instead of Angela Lansbury.  I can’t give you a point, but you do get the blog named after you, ‘cause I try to be fair. Tonight’s FB game was to draw me a monster doing a mundane task.  I received three entries.  One was an imaginary monster in a tutu sweeping, one was Frankenstein’s Monster sweeping (best artistry), and then the winner… something like a flying purple people eater getting out today’s

Alright! Trust Pound!
Rev. Lindsay

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!  26 teams and a visit from Nomad's OG curator, QM Dav!  QM Stephanie stepping in for QM Baby Bear!  TACO PIZZA BACK ON THE MENU?!  Banner night over at Nomad!  Seriously... I’m so vibing on tonight.  That’s right.  I said vibing.  I’m just punchy and giddy because this quiz ruled! Seriously, the real MVP of the night was the guy that turned in an answer sheet for every round as Donald Trump: The Smartest Fucking Guy In The Bar, with every answer in the fashion of the way Donald Trump would answer.  Meaning,

How Theme Parks Will Stop North Korea
Rev. Lindsay

They'll start with the pervert's paradise of Love Land, over in South Korea, where, as we discovered in round three on Thursday, they have 140 x-rated sculptures and other things to titillate your fancies.  We also learned a first-hand account of Dwarf Empire, the theme park in China that is government protected capitalizes on people being amused by midgets. So yeah, I missed y'all last week because I was filming bum fights and then helping Obama with the Iran deal.  You understand.  Apparently I missed the hottest, gayest quiz in Texas with QMs Baby Bear and JWarr.  They are fantastic, no?  In other news involving me,

When Mom is away, the baby sitter gets shanked
Baby Bear

Hey y’all! Thanks for coming out last night! Lindsay was off on a hunting expedition. Which means that I got to be joined by the person who brought me into this geek gig: J-Warr! J-Warr has taught me a lot. How to throw shade at people who shout the answers, reading teams who try to cheat, and the proper way to give a Handy without the risk of getting carpal tunnel. Which was great because all of those things happened last night. First, the rule is actually do not shout out the answers. We say it out loud. We are sassy about it. This also applies to wrong answers. Anything you yell out loud at a bar actually is shouting out an answer. Second, why would you cheat at a fun activity,

This right here? This is my over-the-moon face.
Rev. Lindsay

Hey there, hi there, ho there friends! We had another beautiful week at Nomad! The pizza guys have introduced a taco pizza which pretty much makes all dreams come through.  For serious.  I sell pizza in my day job, and I can’t stop thinking about this pizza… Sorry. I’ll stop. It’s also 3AM now, and while this post ISN’T brought to you by Jameson, it is brought to you by sleep deprivation… which is more surreal and not as funny, as far as I’m concerned. QM Baby Bear is out saving the world again. He and Joe Biden are on a peace keeping mission to figure out how to

This blog was going to be about a lot of different things.    Like how Tiffany answered the FB game and her shit was funny.  And like how Kyle selected the GWD trucker hat from the prize box for the email bonus prize.  And about the epic first place tiebreaker that happened between Quizteama Aguilera and Scalia Has Lost All Meaning where they still tied on the Sudden Death questions and we actually had to resort to Tiebreaker questions because they ran us out of material.  And how Baby Bear knows everything ever about American Legend James Horner (I’m

This Evening Brought To You By Jameson: Part 3
Rev. Lindsay

It happened again.  I’m not even gonna sorry, not sorry, because I almost feel you should expect this by now.  What happened was I should have ordered a medium pizza, but I ordered a small and then the Jameson soaked it all up.  Seriously.  Jameson should sponsor me, like so many racecars.   So!  We had 24 teams out tonight.  Not too shabby!  Get Out Of My Dreams, Get Into My Butt deftly handled first place.  I Am Woman, Hear My DRINK! got all over second place.  They’re back people!  We had some ska music love with folk, which is COMPLETELY my bailiwick.  As per usual,

Rev. Lindsay

I’m going to try to avoid getting over the top gushy, but it’s going to be hard.  I am in absolute awe of the quiz I ran tonight.  Last summer I hosted the Harry Potter theme quiz to over 100 teams, and that was the coolest quiz moment I had until tonight.    We held an awesome Quiz For A Cause to raise funds for The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity and you guys absolutely. 100%. BLEW.THIS. OUT. OF. THE. WATER.  Overall, y’all raised almost $2000 for the Lilith Fund, between team donations, individual contributions, and then that

Great. Now I Have "Holiday Road" Stuck In My Head Forever
Rev. Lindsay

Ahhhh... I love the smell of fresh meat at the beginning of quiz. Y'all got treated to a good old fashioned meat market with two potential QM's auditioning to the room. Back in my day, we were expected to just yell and not even use a microphone... these young whippersnappers. But potentials Candace and John could be coming to a San Marcos/New Braunsfels venue near you! Speaking of other procedural matters, big ups for Baby Bear for picking up all of my slack during quiz so I could spend a little quality a friend of mine that came in from Rockford, IL and then run off AS-SOON-AS-QUIZ-WAS-OVER to get downtown to watch The Dollyrots

This week was a dress rehearsal for the porn we're making next week

Does porn even have a dress rehearsal? Why bother?   Dear denizens of Nomad, This is your intrepid QM Lindsay, back at the helm after a crazy two weeks of moving, matriculating, and completing another turn around the sun.  I missed you all so much while I was gone, but knowing I left you in the capable hands of Baby Bear was a decent amount of solace.  I hope his hands treated you gracefully, kindly, and made sure you got your happy ending. He’s good like that. In honor of graduation, all quizzers were invited to play in their finery and you know I roll deep, so I came with

Baby Bear

Holy quiz y’all! I am just getting my kit back together after last night! We quizzed so hard the FCC may, in fact, want to fine us. But first they will have to find us. Which is easy because we’re at Nomad every Thursday! From the booze made fresh for you by the best bar staff in Austin (They have one that award multiple times) shout out to Ashley who joined us last night behind the bar and kept making technically difficult beverages for you and us on stage. Speaking of I want to thank REDACTED for coming out and scorekeeping with us last night! She handled the scandal well didn’t

Too Much Fun Until The Cops Came!
Baby Bear

Holy moly my friends what an excellent quiz we had tonight. There were so many crazy things going on. People were having weird relationships. People were ordering pizzas. I even think I saw Jonah Hill there. We had 17 teams tonight which means is quite a packed quiz! We gave you a round all about me where teams had to provide answers to question where every answer began with the letters me! I loved that round, I think a lot of people did too. Which was great because round 2 did not go so hot for many people…In fact this is where many of our star teams fell. Who knew a round on songs about questions would trip everyone up. Everyone

At the time of this writing, my hangover has already started.  I know this because the LOUDEST PERSON IN THE WORLD is arguing with a stranger at the bar about Manny Pacquiao deserving a class action lawsuit because of his gloves.  I don’t think we are breathing the same oxygen.  Anyway, he’s making my head hurt and I wish I still had the sweet, warm embrace of irish whiskey coaxing me into the sense of the world being amazing.

Worse Things Happen At Sea
Rev. Lindsay

You know that thing where you’re all half asleep, and half awake, and everything feels really real but you know you’re supposed to be sleeping and then you get really freaked out and you’re all why is this happening but then all why is this run on sentence running on so long and the proofreading banner ads that have nothing to do with you but then trying to figure out why you’re freaked out though you’re in your bed and therefore logically should be safe on paper anyway but then something happens like in Real Genius where you’re standing on a pyramid in sun god robes and a thousand naked women are screaming and throwing little pickles at

No for reals though... call the number. Thank me and Baby Bear later.  719-266-2837.  Promise. I’m just so distracted by everything since Baby Bear was back on the magical couch of love.  I adore him and I’m so happy he was here.  He’s the best. You guys are awesome too! 15 teams holding down the fort.  Good job guys!  Margo from Trivianators won the email bonus prize and she was pumped!

"I can't TELL you what 'X-O-X-O-F' means... You have to EXPERIENCE it"
Rev. Lindsay

Lemme tell ya what Nomad… Last night was delightful.  Full house, good crowd, tasty pizza.  QM Stephanie brought her beautiful self over to help me score, and bless her for that.  I’ve been battling a sore throat all week, and by the end of the night I was responding to people in sign language because my voice finally said, “nope. Nopenopenopenope.”  That last part is convenient because as I was editing your team photos, a Deaf bike club came in to hang out.  I decided it would be untoward to run up and be all “OMGEE! I’M AN ASL STUDENT! BLAH BLAH BLAH LEMME SIGN AT YOU” so fate smiled upon me when some of
