I'd like to try out a joke here.

Q: When Morrissey dies where will his body be kept?

A: In a Moz-oleum.

Kr was literally *just* talking about that. We are probably interested.

Bon Ivoj (jaymc), Saturday, 7 January 2012 21:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm most likely in.

Jeff, Saturday, 7 January 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm probably interested.

jenny are you a veronica falls fan? i think you might be.

La Lechera, Monday, 9 January 2012 15:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

may i recommend

La Lechera, Monday, 9 January 2012 15:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

would anyone want to do pub quiz tomorrow?

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 9 January 2012 17:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh man that sounds like fun, but given that our little guy decided this week that any sort of consistent sleep pattern is out of the question, I'm not sure I can really ditch my wife with a screaming baby until we get things a little more back on track. This weekend was awful, I think we each got a grand total of 7 hours all weekend.

sucks. evie just got back on her normal schedule after vacation/teething threw her off. we had some bad nights last week but things seem good again now.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 9 January 2012 18:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

I might be interested in pub quiz.

Bon Ivoj (jaymc), Monday, 9 January 2012 18:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

jaymc would be the best pub quiz partner of all time.

btw if i were in chicago i'd totally be down for a pub quiz, anytime.

also btw, i find out if i'm moving to chicago today. *refreshes email every 2 minutes*

no matter what happens, i foresee a lot of drinking going on tonight

your pain is probably equal (Z S), Monday, 9 January 2012 18:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nick, Jenny, Jeff go dig around the City's offices and see what you can find out!

Good luck Z.

this week is really busy for me or else I'd be totally in for pub quiz, R and I stopped at the Globe for a beer on Saturday and I was reminiscing a bit about past quizzes

bomb.gif (dan m), Monday, 9 January 2012 19:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

I do not know about Veronica Falls but I will check them out. Thanks!

Also, good luck ZS! My fingers are crossed, just for you.

No pub quiz for me. I'm sick. Blech.

Random: someone mispronounced my last name like Bear-goes today (fluent English speaker, no discernible accent). That is a new one.

gonna give her the old fuquay-varina (Jenny), Monday, 9 January 2012 20:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

Jenny, you will like them. I bet Nick and Sarah would too. Anyone who likes super catchy UK pop with girl singer and post-punk moments.

La Lechera, Monday, 9 January 2012 20:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

niiiiiiiiiiiick where did you put those tracks you recorded most recently with (i think?) sarah and ben that i liked a lot?
are they downloadable somewhere?

La Lechera, Monday, 9 January 2012 20:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

dan, strangely enough, S and I also went to the Globe for a drink on Saturday, and I was also reminiscing about pub quiz. Might also be pub for tomorrow night, though I have a 12.5 hour day on Wednesday, so perhaps I should just make it an early night.

i think i set it so you have to pay to download but i can email them to you once i'm at home if you remind me

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 9 January 2012 20:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

yaaay
ok
i just remember liking them a lot and i want to put more fun stuff on my running ipod
trying to make myself want to do that again requires some planning...

La Lechera, Monday, 9 January 2012 20:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

i still need to rerecord the other song we tried to do that didn't come out due to 4-track problems.

Hey, we'll be able to sneak spiced gumdrops into the Century movies:

Good news! I like CVS.

Wait. Did we already talk about the fact that there will be a gigantor Walgreens competing with it? We talked about these matters separately, but it seems like there will be a face/off at some point.

Oh, guess what? The place where Dominick's burned down and will never rise again (3050 N. Broadway)? It's going to be home to a Mariano's!

Cheap desert locations (Eazy), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 15:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

i'm thinking about it! i'll decide by the end of the day.

La Lechera, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 15:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm not in for trivia.

the Smurf who'll snatch your money (Je55e), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 16:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

so the people possibly in for quiz are me, john, eazy, and maybe amanda? i'm feeling kind of headachey right now so i'd be ok with waiting for a week with better topics but i'll go if everyone else does. i do want to go soon though, i miss pub quiz.

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

I would go next week. I'm broke today.

the Smurf who'll snatch your money (Je55e), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

i could go next week too

those topics aren't really my cup of curly fries

La Lechera, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'll go either week. But Nick can't go next week b/c he's playing that show at the Bottle.

Bon Ivoj (jaymc), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh :(

La Lechera, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

not in for pub quiz this week as I have made the thoroughly adult decision that I must be in bed by 9:30 tonight. I will then use pharmaceuticals to get myself to sleep.

the emancipation of distraction (askance johnson), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

well let's just go some other time then. i think the ice hockey category would kill us this week, unless dan could come.

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

it is attractive but there is a mountain of laundry in my house that ain't getting any smaller and tonight it goes DOWN

bomb.gif (dan m), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

i am thinking of going back to ddpp tomorrow anyway
