The Votes Are In!

June 5, 2014

Thanks to everyone who voted for @SparkyMacMillan and Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia in the Independent‘s Best of the Triangle awards! Finalists, once again … but it’s an honor to be nominated (he said through clenched teeth).

Seriously, I always appreciate any support anyone has ever given me since its not something I’m accustomed to from my upbringing and it means so much to me that total (well, semi-total) strangers would take the time to show their appreciation for something that I so totally enjoy doing, often for little to no money.

Keep reading, keep quizzing, keep supporting and I promise not to let you down in any way that isn’t completely expected based on my abilities and psychological make-up.
