I’ll take “Failing History” for 600, Alex.

January 15, 2010


We went to a Trivia Night fundraiser for St. John school’s 125th celebration, and it was quite fun. Well, the food, the festivities and the people were great! The questions were not as fun because they made me feel like a complete and utter moron. My table – the Royuks, the Pesters, Curt, Annette, and Lloyd – were all doing well. I was trying not to say anything too stupid. The first round of questions were all about past Presidents and took a loooooooooooong time to be over, and I was worried this was going to be more like a MENSA test than a pursuit of trivia. Fortunately, it wasn’t.

It was bring your own snack & drinks.

They had 10 rounds of 10 questions, and our group finished somewhere in the middle. They had individual contests, too, and Beth almost won for having all kinds of crazy stuff on her person – a credit card, an insurance card, a membership card, a lipstick, a key, a ring, a calendar, a writing instrument, an address, a piece of technology, a tissue, a picture of someone not in your family – but she lost due to the lack of a nickel. C’est la vie. She and Harold made up for it by each winning a pie in a drawing.

Thanks for the fun night, St. John! Thanks, Mr. & Mrs. Royuk!

    Yay for pie! I always win cakes and pies at silent auctions. It’s a specialty of mine.

    That is quite the spread. I take it there were no questions regarding preschoolers or prototypes???

    That sounds like so much fun!! Seward is a fantastic place filled with fantastic people?

    I always stink at geography & sports trivia. I don’t care about the sports, but shouldn’t I know that the country Andorra (of course shouldn’t I first know that Andorra is a country)is located in between France & Spain before I know Lucy’s exact dialogue for the Vitameatvegamin commercial. ‘Hello folks…I’m your Vitameatavegamin girl. Are you tired, rundown, listless….

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I think I would’ve won that random object contest, I have most of that in my purse right now!
