Also, I knew my love of DC's Elseworlds would come in handy someday.

Cars Can Be Blue's "Batman" amuses the crap out of me.

Well that blew goats. Nothing like a half hour internet outage during trivia.

At least we're all redundant, and therefor still in the game. The DSL connection, while slow, will suffice for now. The freakin' cable modem blinks silently in the corner, vying desperately for signal.

Sometimes it pays to be Skull Squadron's only Mac user...

Booyah!

You know, once the triviamasters start saying our name properly, we suddenly start getting questions right again. Coincidence? I think not.

Thank you, Barney Stinson, for telling me what a "cougar" is.

Skull Squadron is 8 hardcore people this year, with who knows how many short timers...definitely not a play to win year...

In light of our reduced Skull Squadron status, I thought today's Dictionary.com Word of the Day was appropriate:

"epigone".

*looks longingly at New York*

Edit: After I read the definition, I realized that this could seem like more than the epi- related pun that it is. It's not. I have no stamina for humor other than puns at this point.

Well, unless something big changes in the next hour (i.e. we get many of the 25 point Garrudas and/or the 100 point Super Garruda), we placed 2nd again this year. We're currently 105 points behind Bank....and 70 points ahead of the Iowans. That's a pretty stable set of scores. We all need multiple Garrudas or the Super Garruda to change much. It's possible...I'm sure it *could* happen; it's just not likely.

Not a bad placing (same top three as last year, IIRC).

My trivia team, Skull Squadron, is a yearly favourite of other contestants as well as the trivia masters, and it inspires the oddest behaviours in them. Usually, they just yell SKULL SQUADRON! when announcing our name, but this weekend, their voices failed, and the the Trivia Grand Master Phred has decided to say Skull Squadron in a normal tone of voice, but to accompany it with farting noises made by his hand. He's been keeping this up for the last couple hours.

People are weird.

Also, my left arm and hand has been tingly for most of the last day--I think I screwed up a nerve in there somewhere. Either that, or I'm having a really really long heart attack.

I'm leaning towards nerve stuff myself--my funny bone seems pretty sensitive, and goes off with the slightest provocation.

Here I am, 3:30 in the a.m., less than 24 hours to go till the contest is done. We're in a semi-solid jelloish 2nd place right now--we're pretty sure we've pulled ahead of Six Feet Under in the last few questions. I'm looking forward to my next nap break--I'm not exactly tired, but my reactions and whatnot are definitely delayed. Lots of typos.

I want to go home--I miss my [livejournal.com profile] evilevi.
