November 30 Trivia Rankings

November 30, 2016

Thanks for joining us, Quizlings, for the final trivia bout of the 11th month of the year. We bid a fond farewell to some familiar faces and tried to pin the name on some less than familiar ones (going by the score, any rate).

Along the way, we talked of champions (the NASCAR and canine varieties), TV spin-offs and the mantastic Ricky Martin.

We’ll do it again next week, folks, and on into the new year so join us every Wednesday for triviawesomeness!

In the Cards

November 27, 2016

 

Moira’s parents gave me a birthday card that read:

 

“Happy Birthday, Son-In-Law!

We’re so glad you met our little girl

And happy for all the things you’ve brought her.

But please understand one thing, Son-In-Law,

We’ll NEVER forgive you for nailing our daughter.”

 

I guess you can say Thanksgiving was kinda awkward around here.

November 23 Trivia Rankings

November 24, 2016

A fun pre-Turkey Day triviaganza. Thanks to the Quizlings who made it out. Thanks for all the hand turkeys. And thanks for taking that hefty Butterball off our hands (seriously, he was beginning to bum out the other poultry).

What did we learn? Something about turkey protuberances, escaping the Nazis (I hate those guys) and how it’s a nice day for a royal wedding.

Hey, can I tell you a secret? There’s more trivia next week. (Okay, not much of a secret but spread the word nonetheless.)

Here are the team rankings…

Roamin’ Numerals

November 22, 2016

Sometimes, I like to go to the all-night Harris Teeter and pick up some of those candy numbers for kids’ birthday cakes.  I then go home and make out mathematical problems with them, like 45 x 3 = ?, usually breaking up the ones to form the times and equals signs.  If I can solve a problem within a preset time limit, say, ten seconds, I get to eat the entire problem, all the numbers and everything.

I stop when my teeth begin to hurt, I get a sour belly or I pass out from the sugar rush.

Don’t Let The Turkeys Get You Down

November 18, 2016

So we’ve received all the relatives’ dietary restrictions and I think it’s safe to say that this will be the best gluten-free, carb-free, nut-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, low-fat, low-sulfur, low-protein, low-sodium, kosher, macrobiotic, vegetarian Thanksgiving ever!

November 16 Trivia Rankings

November 17, 2016

A great night for trivia, Quizlings! Hope you had a chance to enjoy the festivities. If not – good news: we’ll do again next week. And give away a turkey to boot. Don’t stay home with the in-laws you can’t stand – come out to Tomato Jake’s and play trivia!

What’d you miss Wednesday night? If I said supermoons and detective hats and Vanilla Fudge, would that mean anything? Shoulda been there, folks.

Also, remember: it pays to look down occasionally:

Go To Bed, Old Man!

November 15, 2016

I officially became a curmudgeon today. Yep. I heard some pants-on-the-ground teenager use “sick” as a compliment and I instinctively shouted at him to “Get the hell off my lawn!” Unfortunately, I lost a few cool points for being in the soda aisle of the Harris Teeter when it all occurred but what can ya do?

November 9 Trivia Rankings

November 10, 2016

Yes, it was a somber night at Wednesday Night Trivia. Most were nursing recent political wounds (those that caused them were perhaps out celebrating – hard to say). But we persevered and triviaed on.

In case you missed it – we counted electoral votes, rewrote literary history and made a big hamburger even bigger.

Plus there was this guy…

We’ll do it again next week, Quizlings! Spread the word (and put up those fliers)!

Now see how your team did this week.
