After an evening of live trivia that left a horrible taste in my mouth (please no dirty jokes unless I’m telling them), it was kind of nice to sign in for a relaxed virtual trivia game – where we were guaranteed to have the best seats in the house – and we didn’t have to show up two hours before game time to save those seats! Oh yes, and the light breeze coming in through my husband’s upstairs office window was nice! Earlier in the evening, we saw a bunny hanging out in our back yard, and later in the evening, we heard coyotes having a howling good time singing along to a passing train!
Kind of makes me wonder why I was so upset about the Corner Brewery having silly new rules about who and how many can sit at X tables on their trivia nights. Why should I struggle to get my ass to a trivia spot early – only to potentially have some staff member tell me that I don’t have enough warm bodies sitting at the table that I’ve been staring at for two hours?
“So…you’re telling me I don’t have enough friends,” I say, giving my best facial impression of a downtrodden basset hound?”
“No, you don’t. Now go sit at a folding kiddie table with the other players who don’t have enough friends! Go – Vamoose! Every seat needs to be generating money!”
Now I’m sure they’ll be a lot nicer about it, but truth be told, if I get my sorry self to a place early to save a table for TWO HOURS, I’m going to want to keep that table, and only share it with the friends I do have (even if the bar staff doesn’t think I have enough friends to justify sitting at the table I’ve picked! You know this was all a joke, right?
Yeah, joking or not, I’m better off just avoiding all of that nonsense, aren’t I? And overly crowded rooms, while I’m at it! 🤣

Name the song with the word “star” in its title (either on its own or as part of another word) based on the year of release and lyrics.
M1. (1972) “He told me; Let the children lose it; Let the children use it; Let all the children boogie”
M2. (1983) “’Cause you shine on me wherever you are; I just think of you, and I start to glow; And I need your light and baby, you know”
M3. (2012) “Hands up and touch the sky; Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high; Let’s do this one more time”

Missed #3. I actually listened to song #1 before the game!
FInal Question: The Tour de France leader in the general classification category wears a yellow jersey, while the leaders of the points classification, the mountains classification, and the young rider classification wear jerseys with other colors or designs.

We wagered zero and would not have known it anyway.
We plan to go out for a live game Monday. As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, David Bowie! Sorry…no answers for these. Look em up!
