This week I got some pretty great feedback on my debut as a butt model. Thanks everybody! I’ll be quitting my job soon and pursuing it as a full time career.

Thank you to all the fantastic teams at Mellow Mushroom, it has been FABULOUS being your host!

Mellow Mushroom: Batman is REAL LIFE! June 17, 2011

FYI Batman DID NOT have superpowers in Batman 1. According to the geniuses that make up my trivia teams at least.And I can confirm because the other day I saw Batman singlehandedly putting out the fires in southern Colorado, no super powers involved.

This week my math skills were put to the test. Actually just kidding that’s every week. But I’ll bet I can do simple addition in my head way faster than the average American adult. God Hates Reservations  won the shots for round 1, but Glass house totally dominated in round 2. Also of noteworthiness was Dustin Diamond in the Rough. In the end, I’ll be honest I thought God Hates was sneaking ahead, but it was Glass House that came out on top. Good job everybody!

Mellow Mushroom–most politically incorrect team name yet and I’ve been doing this trivia hosting thing for a while now… June 8, 2011

I’ve been doing this trivia gig thing for a while now, but tonight I had some late comers that scribbled down a team name on their answer sheets that made my jaw drop. Which takes a lot. Team Dumpster Behind Planned Parenthood. Oh dear…

This week there was a little bit of a battle of the sexes. I must admit that  although my score keeping is always objective, a teensy part of me was rooting for Just the Tip. They trailed the whole time, but in the end it was God Hates Weiners that finished first (only in this trivia game though that’s for sure). We’re Stuck in Geekland scored big in round 2, whiile God Hates took round 1.

Good job to all teams. Team Dumpster–how about we discuss some alternative team names for next time, ok?

 

Mellow Mushroom–I’m sorry God Hates my Green V-neck and Brown Pumps. June 3, 2011

This week some teams thought it would be a hoot to poke fun at the fashion choices made by the trivia host. Mean. Just mean.

This week we had some old and some new power hitters. Round 1 was won by God Hates Green V-necks (just mean), Glass House, and the Flashy Bubblers. In round 2 it became clear that we had some new smarties in the house. Team John Wilkes Kissing Booth won by several points and came through in the end as our overall winners. A tie for second place was settled between Glass House and  How to Lose Friends and Alienate Others(sounds likeit was a rough Memorial Day weekend for some). Close behind the whole time were the fabulous Lissa’s Late, Fierce Force Five, and the Canyoneers. Pics to come soon!

Mellow Mushroom–More Gossip Girl please? May 26, 2011

Man those Gossip Girl questions are great, aren’t they?? It just makes me want to be mean and superficial and put some lipgloss on. I think we should have a Gossip Girl question every week (subtle hint, Tobin 😉

This week we had some very close and very high scores. Team Glass House beat out Hyper Mushroom in a tiebreaker for round 1, while We Got Blown in Oklahoma snatched the round 2 tiebreaker from the Mangy Bitches. In the end, it was Hyper Mushroom that stole the show, but the exciting part was the tiebreaker between the Mangy Bitches and I got Blown for second place. IGB came out on top for the tie, once again. Nice job everybody!

Awesome night last night despite the rain!  Thanks for welcoming me as your guest host-in-training Mellow Mushroom!!

We had many many great teams join us!  3 Muskateers, The Porch, Louda (LOUDA!!), Duke of Coal, MSC Stranglers, Minitab Masters, Not Clever Enough, Sessions 56, Ice Ice Baby (dun dun dun dundundundun), Sessions Beer Sucks, Two’s Company (very close score!), God Hates Ahhnold (2nd place!) and our winners of the night were Glass House!

There were some major Baywatch fans in the house!  Two’s Company won round one’s tiebreaker question.  They were off by only 1!!  Glass House then swept in and took round two!  Shots for everyone!! (P.S. the offer still stands for someone to buy me a SoCo Lime shot)

Great job everyone!  See you next week I hope!

Mellow Mushroom–Rain or Shine! May 12, 2011

An exciting night of trivia on a very dreary night! I was joined by new host Scott, who will be kicking it off at Woody’s soon. He did a fabulous job and we will wish him luck!

The first round was taken by Carrie Nation, by a mere point. In round 2 we had a massive tiebreaker between Coming from behind, Red Wings Suck, God Hates Late Teammates, and Viper Sharks eating Babies or something along those lines. In the end, it was the teams that really knew their soda flavors that struck gold. Congrats to Carrie Nation for taking first, and God Hates for their second place win, won proudly in a tiebreaker with We are Primates. Good job to all!

Mellow Mushroom–If you call out the answers multiple times you will see me get angry May 5, 2011

Ok so when I have to give away not one…but TWO free points because someone for some reason things we’re on Jeopardy and his beer glass is his buzzer…THEN you’re going to see me get mad! Please people! Show some respect for the trivia!

This week you guys knew all the answers. Almost. But not quite. Congrats to It’s Steve’s Birthday for winning round 1 and overall. Apparently getting a year older makes you smarter. God Hates Table Takers (who exactly are you pissed at this week??) won our second round and second place overall, but 3 guys 1 glass gave them a run for their money, trailing by 1 in each round. And I quadruple checked so yes the scores were right. Favorite team name of the week: The Stepmothers. Why? Because you hate them and they beat you. HAHA!! So not P.C. but that’s ok. Good job everybody!

Mellow Mushroom–more than one person does not pull out but has a couch that does April 29, 2011

What a pleasant surprise that we would be joined this week by not one, but two teams claiming ‘My couch pulls out but I don’t.’ Hoping to get a date with at least one member of each team.

This week the victories were ALL OVER the place. the Dirty Shirleys ( FYI I would like to name one of my future pets Shirlena) took round 1 but exhausted themselves in that win. Round 2 went to Double Rainbow by several points, while Touched by an Uncle proved their knowledge of Dominoes toppings and snuck ahead to win overall. Busy night at Mellow Mushroom trivia, nice job everybody!

Mellow Mushroom–I’m officially TRIVIA LADY!!! April 14, 2011

Not that any title including the word ‘lady’ is something I’ve ever wished for because it’s usually something like ‘crazy lady’ or ‘old lady’. But after being called out as such on the street at 2 a.m. in another city while hailing a taxi, I think I can say it’s official. Considering changing my middle name to Trivia Lady. That’s not to say all of our other female hosts aren’t fabulous trivia ladies too 🙂
This week at the Mellow Mushroom downtown was H-E-C-T-I-C. Between a delayed start and some crazy camera action (it’s gonna be the best training video ever I swear), we played 3 rounds of Buzzwordz speed trivia. But good times nonetheless!
God Hates Arranged Seating (thanks guys) `took round 1 in a surprise tiebreaker–I’m still apologizing for the surprise part. Keesterville, our traveling team of the week, took first in round 2. Overall it was again God Hates and Keesterville, with Glass House falling to third by only a few points.
In all the craziness I failed to take pictures other than these. Good job everybody, see you next time!
