frivolous chase

for many, many years i have known that danny elfman used to be in oingo boingo. i can't think of a more useless trivia fact to have stored in my memory bank. well tonight, i was finally able to use it! it was actually a question at trivia. i couldn't believe it. the trivia guy didn't even know who danny elfman was. i don't know if that's common or not. i feel like i've always known of him. sadly, we did not win trivia. we came in third. the second place team cheated on their iphones all night. that is really irritating. i would even say that it flustrated me. also, some jackass kept yelling, "FUCK YOUR FACE!" across the room all night long. it was reallllly annoying for two reasons: 1) i think he thought it was extremely funny and it wasn't and 2) a disturbing visual arose every time he said it.

Wait, they were cheating and they still only came in second? They must be really stupid. (Unless the first-place team was also cheating.)

Also, I hate people who yell.

the first place team has like 20 people, they've been winning a lot lately. i do not like them. haha!

20! Our trivia only allows up to 6 on a team. Well, I guess you can show up with more and play, but you don't qualify for the prizes if there are more than 6 people at a table.

they don't have a limit on the number of people a team can have. however, the final prize (i think the finals are every 3 months) is usually only for 10 people. but the weekly first place prize is a $50 giftcard to the restaurant so that's pretty nice. but when you have 20 people it doesn't really go very far.
