Subject Trivia 2003!
Date Thu, 3 Apr 2003 030821 -0500
Greetings all! As yet another trivia grows uneasily close, I have seen my
hopes and dreams of writing this letter two weeks in advance wash down the drain. I’ve
been busy! And I think Plato was the one who said, “He who is busy, must sleep double.”
Or maybe it was Andrew Jackson! (I took notes from last year’s newsletter
). Along with
the fresh smells of spring, comes the anxious scent of trivia anticipation in the air.
Are you ladies and gentlemen getting a little antsy in your pantsy? I am, and I haven’t
even touched a drop of syrup! My foot is tapping wildly on the floor, and I feel the
need to do something sporadic. Marry me in Vegas, Lisawoo? Thanks! As for the rest of
you, I hope you don’t overload and blow a cerebral cortex like WayneR:
You have no idea how much enjoyment I get to finally be able to pass the ridicule his
way after getting it for 4 years!
We have an excellent show for you this evening
folks, and I’m not just saying that. This may be the best we’ve ever had. Thanks for the
intro, Conan! For this year’s name, we are leaning towards: Norwigan Studs: Quality
Naked Tyne. It’s a classic that we should have broken out a few years ago when we
decided at the last moment to use the 3,667 comps-slash-playas instead. Man that was
awful. Wayner has come up with a few more ideas to ponder:
- Norwigan Studs: Making dark men blush
- Norwigan Studs and the 3 am sausages
- Norwigan Studs: Break down & marry
- Norwigan Studs: No mono this year!
- Norwigan Studs: Antsy in our pantsies
or my personal favorite
- Norwigan Studs: Antsy in our panties
We still have until next Monday to think things over. If any people prefer
Wayner’s suggestions, send one of us a message. We’ll get on that right away.
Otherwise keep pondering yourselves, and anyone with divine inspiration should make
their visions known. Just remember, even God is humane enough not to put me in a beam
of light naked. P.S. Did I mention its 2am? Haha!
Backed by unpopular demand, we have chosen to make the float this year a space
shuttle. I know, I know, insensitive right? Well… we’ve sort of thrived off of the
weird and bizarre, so we thought why change. Remember the 8th amendment protects you
from cruel and unusual punishment, so those who don’t want to abet need not. Of course
we’ll be respectful, and make sure both of the wings are intact. I still like the idea
of making the float a missile too, but I don’t know if people would understand, since
it would only be half of one. We’d just paint the submarine white and put fins on it,
and I don’t have time this year to completely redesign the float into an Abrams tank.
Maybe later? Oh, and regardless of what it is… we’ll still have half naked chicks
surrounding it! Volunteers?
This year we expand our trivia sphere of influence, as Rainy will be coming in from
Seattle for the weekend. It’s about time! Meaple has a nice warm welcome for you!
Also, Domka is hopping a coconut transport from Hawaii, and Holz will be playing via
her remote 90fm audio feed in Singapore. As she has already pointed out, the time
differential will make her a perfect early morning player, or at least someone to keep
Alec will be making shirts once again! He is more than anxious to start pumping out
these high quality beauties. As he indicated in the forum, they will be constructed of
premier Wal-mart cotton, and feature the finest crafted logos. Raygor made his own
contribution to trivia, even though he will not be able to attend, which are “The Top
Ten Reasons why Trivia is the Same as Sex!” (Teaser: “#6 If you are bored, you can
always slap the ‘one-eyed trout’.”) Just today, Doni asked if they made XXS shirts, so
we replied, “get an M and wash it.” I’ve also been informed the 3am sausage phenomena
will be featured on the shirts as well.
As in previous years, Trivia will be held in the luxurious confines of Dad’s basement.
If you don’t know how to get there by now, just ask someone, or remember it’s 245
paces due south of Fill’s bar. We will be asking $20 per player once again, and
although I haven’t asked Ivy yet, I assume he will oversee the collection of said
funds :) Naturally, the complaint line has been opened, and all those with problems
can contact the Dragonmount Customer Service Department at
IwillcometoworkshootingifIeverhavetopayanotheremail@example.com or email
the president directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. As in previous years,
if anyone has any specific food requests, let them be known before we shove off for
Copps. Alec has had a hankering for frozen pizza lately, so rest assured we’ll get
those… or maybe we’ll just blow the cash on porn.
Another task, which I have delegated to Ivy without his knowledge, is the StudsNOC
administration. Last year we had excellent uptime, so long as no one walked in the
valley of death where all the cables lay. Of course, StudsNOC would be of no use if no
one brought computers! So this year, don’t only bring yours, bring your mom’s. We want
the room overflowing into the living room, and people crammed in like babies in the
womb. (Hint hint Maia). Plus, if we have 30 computers, that means at least 12 of them
will be unlocked at any given time, so 8 of them can icq/check email/quake, while the
other four search! Right? Right.
IMPORTANT! The CDC has issued an important news bulletin. Player beware, especially
those who may be eligible for the ‘New Mom’ and ‘New Dad’ awards. Currently, 100% of
the recipients of these awards have been wed. If you do not desire this result, take
care during trivia. Watch what you handle, and especially whom you sleep next to!
Norwigan Studs Trivia shall not be responsible for persons engaged or wed, or for
offspring produced as a result of trivia weekend.
I hope everyone can make it again this year, as always, the more the merrier. If you
haven’t been invited, you are. I’m horrible at remembering formal invitations. I can
almost taste the 3am brats from here. MMMmmm. Start saving up your energy, the fun all
begins next weekend. Also, crews always end up a bit thin on Sunday, especially in the
morning, so we can all just have Wayne write the questions, search, and call in the
answer, but I bet our success will improve otherwise. Those of you who enjoy the
running questions… where are you? Last year Anne (aka: MmmmCr0n) took the reigns on
that one, but I haven’t heard for sure yet whether or not she’ll be around. That’s
about all for me. Take her away fast eddie……
I thank you for your time and enthusiasm thus far.
With the utmost excitement, I am
Dr. Robert Hume, S.I.L.F.
