Notre Dame Club Trivia Night

It’s trivia season! When the weather gets cool and the leaves begin to change, you know it’s time to brush up on your useless knowledge and bring out your stretchy pants.

This past weekend’s trivia night was put on by the Notre Dame Club of St. Louis. Our resident alumni put the team together and we were ready to dominate. The last time she had put a team together, they came in second so there was some pressure to repeat. With our brain food set out, we were ready to play.

It was a pretty fun trivia night, there was a mixture of hard and easy categories. Some of the more memorable ones were: Baby Celebrities, Geography and GPS, Science, Presidential Elections, Movie Quotes, and 90s TV. I kicked butt with Baby Celebrities (US Weekly is my study guide) and I was all about 90s TV (apparently I didn’t have much of life). I also learned that the brontosaurus doesn’t exist. (Why is everything I learned as a child being taken away from me? Pluto and now the brontosaurus.) Geography and GPS was a challenging category but I really enjoyed it. You would be given an address and its longitude and latitude and you had to guess the capital.

We ended up finishing in 4th place (actually, we were tied for 3rd but lost the tiebreaker) but that’s a win in my book. Notre Dame Club of St. Louis, thank you for the trivia night, what a way to start us off.

I Am Taking The Plunge

I have joined Weight Watchers Online and I am letting the Internet know. I wanted to be accountable for the 3 people that read this blog. Lately I’ve been feeling a bit dejected about not having the time to go work out and plan better meals. Other things haven’t worked and I have heard great things about this program so I thought I would give it a try. I just need to do something and maybe, because I’m paying for this service, I’ll actually try to follow it. I’m hoping that this will help me curb my terrible eating habits and force me to be more diligent about working out. If anyone out there has done this program and has some tips and tricks for me, I’m all ears. It’s always good to hear about what other people are doing and what’s helping them.

And I’m dragging Bob with me, kicking and screaming.
