Not much of a Thursday update

I didn’t have much time to round up news yesterday, because I was

  1. Working
  2. Studying for trivia
  3. Playing trivia
  4. Losing trivia

On Wednesday afternoon, the Blind Bear posts the topics for that evening’s trivia. This is a new thing that started since Patrick took over. Yesterday’s topics were

  • Tiffany & Good Co.
  • Sly Stallone
  • Capitol Cornerstones
  • Bluff City Lawyers

When I saw the categories on Facebook, I thought, “Thank goodness they post the categories in advance. I would have got clobbered in trivia otherwise.”

I got clobbered anyway.

For one thing, I misinterpreted the meaning of Capitol Cornerstones. I thought it would be about the most famous buildings in Washington D.C. No, it was a round of trivia about cornerstones.

Also, I didn’t know how to study for Bluff City Lawyers, considering the show doesn’t premiere until next week. It turned to be a round of trivia about lawyers in Memphis. One of the questions was Corey B. Trotz’s phone number.

No Bear Bucks for our team this week.

Anyway, I only have one news item but it’s a good one, especially for those who get off work early or don’t work a 9 to 5. From 2 PM to 5 PM weekdays, the Silly Goose will be selling their new wood-fired pizzas for half-off. That means the prices will be between $5 and $7.50. Apologies to the fine folks at River Time Market & Deli, but you won’t be seeing me for lunch today. I’m getting a pizza!

That’s it. Back tomorrow with hopefully more news than today.
