Hey blog readers! I’m being a bit “relaxed” today and am writing this on my Samsung Galaxy 7 inch tablet which people frequently mistake for an oversized phone! My husband has commandeered my laptop, and is working on our taxes. I’m hoping he keeps the grumbling to a minimum!
There are only four more weeks left in the My Trivia Live season, so we’ll likely play four more games at Tower Inn. We also moved into first place in the Thursday night Sticks scene, so we may continue playing Thursdays until we log at least 12 scores. I have a later start time in my work schedule now, so the 9 pm games are easier to commit to! Also, the new host Angie seems very nice! Mike, Evan and I have become a bit hated by the other teams (a few of which outnumber us significantly). Sigh…all’s fair in pub trivia and war!
My husband and I have talked about playing at The Owl during the next MTL bye week in March, but that will depend upon weather. We both enjoyed playing there, and only stopped because of Tower Inn being offered the same night. We also take a break from Milan games in the winter months.
I recently sent an email to the Tower Inn host to ask her to try turning down the music volume at her show. The overly loud music (which I joked about with another player as being louder than than a 1976 Who concert) is causing players to have to yell over each other – and when players sing along to songs (ugh that former Powells team) – it becomes absolutely unbearable. We’ll shop around for a new spot if this isn’t resolved. I know, I know…if the music is too loud, I’m too old!
This isn’t the first time I’ve complained about this…I made a similar complaint about Oscar’s a couple of years ago which was resolved. I remember asking another player at one of the loud Oscar’s shows if he’d heard a particular question and he said, “I can’t hear anything.” This gave my complaint a bit more “teeth” since I wasn’t the only one!
I’m very happy with how my team has been doing so far this year! Though I do miss getting out and mixing things up in different trivia spots.
That’s all I have to say for now!
