Scored A Garruda!
Well done Ben, and well done team.
Well done Ben, and well done team.
Hey, don’t get me excited. I had, like, a week long boner after watching “Precious”.
We ♥ our sponsors: Dr. Jekyll’s and Noodles & Company!
We temporarily were well-staffed… and then 2/3 of them disappeared in about a two minute period. Where did y’all go?!
…but after forty hours of trivia without showering, I’m not sure we really want everyone to take off all their clothes.
“When I leave, your daughters will be pregnant and your cookies will be gone!”
Time for mimosas and a dance party!
Shit’s gettin’ real.
Penis butterfly tattoos are all the rage now and we’re all gonna get one after the contest. Kris will look really good with another tramp stamp to go with the first one.
but at least the questions have been more tolerable.
But the real reason things are picking up is because Dave and Sean came back from answering phones, and Sean is watching Jell-o and pudding wrestling.
When are the rest of y’all sending down some phone answerers?
This was a difficult question because all we got were websites for gay Asian porn and “how to turn a straight guy gay.” I will be applying these techniques to Corey as I’m guessing that he is very susceptible.
There seems to be a glitch with the comments right now, but I’m not sure what it is.
Colt 45 is running a contest where you can win a dinner with Billy Dee Williams and there is a picture of him inside the bottle. Quote from Trixie, “Now Billy Dee is inside me!”
Seventeen people, and going strong!
Kris and Sean hit some vintage Four Loko. It’s the end of an era.
Looking good, Alanna!
…beer aids! -Squishy
Welcome back, Squishy!
Pictures were taken — “It’s mushy!” — way to go Ben!
…we’re tied for first after the first question!
We are starting to assemble in the War Room. Here’s hoping Ben shows up in time to do the ceremonial consumption of last year’s final cheeseball before ten o’clock…
In a little less than five hours the members of Too Much Trivia in the Pants will be hunkering down in the War Room for this year’s edition of the Great Midwest Trivia Contest, but you have an opportunity to catch up with your favorite stars of stage and screen when select members of Los Pantalones gather for pre-trivia cocktails and camaraderie down at Dr. Jekyll’s! Various members will be stopping down at this local watering hole — and one of our sponsors! — roughly between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 this evening. Have a beer with us, hoot and holler with us, and tell us how much you enjoy our sexy facial hair. Buy us a beer and maybe we’ll autograph something! This might be your last opportunity to see most of us before Sunday night, so don’t miss it!
This little gem was posted on the trivia site this morning:
“She totally ate my ass cookie!”
Yep — set up of the War Room is well under way. Drinking beers and shooting the shit, so come on down and join in.
Hey there everyone! As some of you already know, I have been without a computer for the last sixteen days, so I haven’t been in a position to do my usual tasks like respond to e-mails in a timely manner or post updates here on the site. At any rate, I am back in Appleton now, and am making use of my parents’ computer for the time being.
While I wait for my luggage to be delivered — it didn’t arrive with me on the plane from Chicago this morning — so I can change clothes, I thought I’d post links to a few stories.
First, we have the story in the Post-Crescent about this year’s contest:
LU’s annual trivia contest, kicking off Friday, feels a connection.
Second, we have the press release from Lawrence:
50-Hour Salute to the Insignificant Takes Center Stage as Lawrence University Hosts 46th Annual Trivia Contest.
And third, we have a seperate Lawrence press release about Grand Master Derrell Acon (so don’t say I didn’t warn you if there’s a question about this, or, say, a whole hour devoted to opera…):
Derrell Acon Wins Metropolitan Opera District Audition.
Now I’m going to go take a nap, but I look forward to seeing some of you tonight and the rest this weekend!
Happy New Year from Los Pantalones!
For all of you followers of The Pants who tried to visit this site in about the last eleven months, you already know that the site was down for the better part of that time. The reason for this is that I transitioned our blog from Movable Type 4.38 to MT 5.01 after trivia back in February, and Six Apart totally changed all of their code with the new release, which messed up our blog. I have slowly been getting the site back online recently, and most of it seems to be functioning properly except for the comments, which I am hoping to have back up and running well in advance of the start of trivia less than four weeks from now. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you will check in with us again during this year’s contest.
UPDATE: After lots of experimentation, it would appear that the comments are now working again. I’ll leave the comments open and active on this entry so others can experiment and see if the comments are working for them, too. Feel free to leave a comment here (keep it clean!) to let me know if the comments are working for you. Thx!
