Last night was trivia night at the Saucer. Now, a few weeks ago I predicted that the other downtown trivia team – currently calling themselves Imus and the Nappy-Headed Hos – were on the beginning of a downhill slide, and while they might pick up the occasional victory once in a while, they would soon prove to be a flash-in-the-pan team not on par with the legendary Rapscallions.
Well, last night was the “occasional victory” for them – their first in a month. No sooner had the announcement been made when their team leader Clay came running over, jumping up and down, all excited like a 12-year-old boy who had just seen his first boob. “Flash in the pan! Flash in the pan!” he kept saying. Calm down, Bucky.
I do congratulate them on their victory – they were the better team last night. However, I still continue to believe it’s a last gasp. They’re legends of trivia about as much as Ricky Martin is a legend of music – their string of victories in January/February was their “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and last night was “She Bang.”
Anyway, the Rapscallions took second, adding $25 to our stash for a total of $160. The Nuh-Uh Girl wrote down all the questions so that she could quiz the Nuh-Uh Sister, who missed trivia due to a Pilates class. We lost by 7 points… let me know if the Nuh-Uh Sister could have made up the difference. If so, I’m calling the Pilates studio and telling them they’re not allowed to schedule Tuesday night classes anymore.
Not going out tonight… too much to do at home. I need to spend several hours building my Amazon.com aStore – I told a couple of people the concept last night (the store will focus on selling one particular type of product) and they think it could be a smashing success. I also need to clean the apartment up a little, as there may be people coming in and out Saturday night due to a nearby party.
All right… not much news to report today, and I’ve got a lot to get done on the laptop, so I’m going to go ahead and post. Perhaps I’ll get the crawfish fest pics up tonight.
