One of those sentences you never expect to write involves bouncers and the geeky trivia question night at the local watering hole.
Anyway, we went to a Geeks Who Drink event last night. They have a pretty sweet setup: Free Trivia, happening around suppertime (so people will want to order a meal in addition to the brewskis), and have the event early enough so that folks who will have to be at work at 7AM tomorrow won’t feel like they can’t go. Prize pool? A couple of gift certificates as well as free drafts for every bonus question.
And people will say “We should go next week” when they only get 2nd place.
Which we did. (We talked to the gamesmaster at the end of the night and he told us that the final scores of the top two were 65 to 68. SO CLOSE. But we were the only team to get the Squirrel Nut Zippers question right, so we had that going for us.)
Next week we will get first. Oh yes.
Anyway, this weekend has a somewhat less hectic schedule going on than last week. The main event this weekend is a post-birthday party for one of the nephews. I realize that I did my birthday parties wrong when I was a child. Instead of saying “I want to invite kids from my class!”, I ought to have said “I want to invite your childless grownup friends who have white-collar jobs and who are also in the middle of a perpetual adolescence.”
Though there seemed to be fewer of those on the ground in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
The other evenings, thank goodness, are free and clear and will be spent convalescing from HOLY CRAP THIS WAS THE WORST WEEK EVER. Good riddance.
So… what’s on your docket?
