yo yo yo

soooooo... the dodgers were too busy playing the longest and shittiest game in history, so I had nothing to do but drink beer and talk to people.

moral of the story... it got a little sloppy. someone was giving out quadruple or nothings, and also, cannot count very well and scores were all over the place.

Just because Shawn can name 90% of WWF wrestlers does not mean he automatically gets to win the quiz. Or maybe it does. Depends on how terrible my score keeping is.

So everyone said to me, "You're not driving home are you?"... hmmmm... not sure exactly what that means, but maybe I drank too much? I dunno. Dodgers suck, I do what i want. Your Uber is arriving.

Also, congrats to E=MC Hammer for winning the quiz, until it turned out that they got second place. Woop Woop! Harry Potter trivia gonna be off the chain and we gonna have beers and funs. Andre got his very own question yet again. Mineko will be pleased to hear that I spilled a McFlurry on myself on the way home... How do you spill a mcflurry on yourself? well sometimes they fill it too high and then it melts a little bit and then you take the lid part off and it spills everywhere. Sabeen forwarded me an email today, which seems like something that should have happened about 11 years ago, but it's still strangely in practice today. and then there's Courtney who I'm not 100% sure if she likes me or hates me.

Year of the Rat! Sometimes I think Shawn only shows up to give me a hard time (that's what she said)... but yes, i do mean sexy time trivia. In this case though, he was correct and Year of the Rat did win the quiz. It seemed highly suspicious. I never should have let them do the scoring for me. Rachel and Megan and Angela all in the house talkin bout boys and movies which they liked or got bored in. Good times. Dodgers be damned. Rachel, please stop hugging me you creeper.

Wallets of El Segundo in the house. There was an inappropriate amount touching going on at their table. Or maybe appropriate... I can't figure it out. Chris showed up 2 rounds late, so he can happily blame his teammates for not winning. Although he did phone in his WWF answers, which is highly suspect, and yet, strangely allowed in this circumstance. Tiffany, keep wearing them grandma sweaters. You know how I like em.

For the final time this month it was not my birthday. Which means quite possibly trivia next week is going to be a drunken mess. I look forward to seeing you all...

Merry christmas to all, and to all a good niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

Cohort in the house! They may be down a member, but the spirit was high! They may have complained about some of the answers, but still won the quiz on a daring, go-for-broke double down on round 7. I salute the size of your balls Cohort.

E=MC Hammer duelling it out on the tie breaker. They threw out a random number, and hey, sometimes it's better to be lucky than smart. Sabeen knows a lot about Harry Potter and is actively recruiting new members to sit and watch the USC game with Courtney.

Long time no see Aeropeeps! They haven't been back since sports interfered with trivia 6 months ago... but with the demise of Buffalo Wild Wings trivia comes an opening on Wednesday nights. I've never seen a group of people so angry about coming third place. You still won a prize! If you're not first, you're last I suppose. And who am I to talk, they're one of the top ranked teams in all of King Trivia!

Year of the Rat had a bare bones team, with Michelle making her long awaited return. It's possible OB's is sending an all star team to harry potter trivia night, so watch out Los Angeles. Also, Rachel knows exactly how old Legolas is.

Wallets of El Segundo were missing their grumpiest member. But it's ok because they showed me their boobs.

Fun times were had. A merry unbirthday to you all.

Happy Un-birthday everyone!

Except Alex, because it was her birthday.

Well I received the biggest birthday surprise of all time today. Most of the surprise was hinged upon the fact that it's not my birthday for 3 more weeks. But that makes it so much better. I now get a whole month worth of birthday.

Things got a little crazy. Megan brought Angela who is 5'10" tall (just like Cindy Crawford, allegedly) She's newly single and ready to mingle. Get down to OB's all you creepers reading this!

Year of the Rat took 3 unacceptable weeks off, but Rachel got drunk and gave me loads of hugs so it was ok. Megan gave me the middle finger the whole night, which is fine because mama Berry will yell at her.

Cohort finally got a literature round and they crushed it! Spirits were low ever since last weeks "Texas" answer almost got Seth kicked off the team.

I tried to sabotage E=MC Hammer by telling them Costa Rica was an island. Which it's not. Unless you count the island off Costa Rica where Jurassic Park is located.

Not His Birthday, John just wants free drinks finally gave me their team number today, suspiciously also on a day they placed on the winners' board.

Wallets in the house! It never seizes to amaze me how they torture themselves by coming to trivia every week. Especially if other teams get points that Chris feels they haven't earned. Grumpiness level 6/10.

I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of hosting King Trivia at OB's, and I'm pleased to confirm that Hootie and the Blowfish will remain on the weekly playlist.

In case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight
