Short and Lame

Tonight was a late night for me. The paper for which I write had a trivia team in a local Rotary Club fundraiser. Some of their team bailed out at the last moment so in a fit of desperation, they called me to join the team. 
I thought I was pretty good at trivia, but I learned tonight that thinking and being are two totally separate things.
I think I answered 2 out of first 20 questions. Thankfully others on the team did know the answers.
Toward the end, I found my rhythm and came up with a few answers in a clutch, but all and all, I'd give myself a "D".  The team as a whole came in third out of 21 teams, so not a bad showing.
So, tonight it's a short lame post. I'll do better tomorrow.


  1. I imagine that it depends on what sort of trivia interests you. Apparently, as a team, you worked well, so don't beat yourself up too much.

  2. Blame it on the cold weather in the south affecting the blood flow to the brain!!

  3. my husband is a treasure trove of trivia. I'm not that good but I do have a store of arcane facts. when Trivial Pursuits first came out, my sister and her husband loved to play it. me and mine aren't much for games but they talked us into it a couple of times and we beat the pants off them. they never wanted to play with us after that.

  4. Truly a humbling experience. I would probably get an "F".

  5. It's really hard to think on the spot. I blank out. You pulled it out in the end and that's something I'm not always able to do, so kudos to you!

    I have something for you on my blog today :)

  6. Wow, that's pretty great that you came in 3rd. I'm awful at trivia. If anyone wants to play a trivia game, I persuade them to play something else. :)

  7. Third is good! It's scary the things my mind absorbs, so I tend to do well at trivia games.
