Thu August 11 at 7:30 PM, The Maple Leaf Pub
514 Elgin St, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
Last time, we came away with first and second place, which means that we have a $50 bar tab this time. That's a lot of cheese-stuffed jalapeños, y'all. The more the merrier! If we field three teams, do we think we can land ALL the top honors?
I didn't see any telltale signs of steak and potatoes last time. But I did see that some people just brazenly brought snacks with them. Just nosh for thought...

Hope to see you there. As usual, I'll wear a MeFi t-shirt so that we're easily identifiable by any new person that may wish to show up and get their nerd on!

In the spirit of "taking one for the team", I'm now reading Perez Hilton every day, to improve my knowledge of vacuous pop personalities.

Dang, still on the road. I'd kill for a cheese-stuffed jalepeno. MexicanYenta, that's a serious undertaking on your part. You'll have to follow up the Perez Hilton with some Proust or something just to balance your brain out.

Aw MexicanYenta! You were instrumental in our win last week! I'm not going to stop you from becoming an even better trivia machine - but you're an awesome team mate already!

Aw, shucks! [blushes, then mumbles tasteless joke about the length of the average erect instrument]

Sorry loves, I've just had to drop out for the evening tomorrow due to an irreconcilable scheduling conflict! I'll drop by the maple leaf around starting time to give hugs and mojo and the drink coupon that we won last time so you nerds can drink yourselves silly on our winnings!

Well, dammit, I had a bad case of insomnia last night, and didn't fall asleep till 5 a.m., then woke up at 8 a.m. So I may not make it tonight. I'm going to try to sneak in a nap today, but no guarantees.

I'm having to back out as well, unfortunately. I'm all 'stove up' as they say here down south and a hot tepid bath and some Aleve for me before I get to do it all over again tomorrow! Sorry for the short notice :-(

I finally found pziemba, Mrs. pziemba and their friend after round 1. We were in the lead after round 3, but a difficult round 7 proved to be our downfall. We finished off the podium in 4th place.

See y'all on the 25th!
