There's a bar near us, Fizz, that has Thursday trivia nights. We basically used to dominate and then stopped going (winners guilt?). We can no longer ignore our calling, so last night we gathered our team, the Therapists, back together to defend our crown. Not only did we win the coveted $30 Fizz gift certificate (which we will put into action at the next trivia night), but we also won the shot round, a feat not easily accomplished (by us). I'm assuming that you are thinking to yourself, "That sounds fun. I'd love to become a Therapist." Not so fast! Can you even answer these questions? Doubt it. Answers are at the end of this post.
1. What is the nickname of former professional baseball manager Dorrel Norman Elvert Herzog, who will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010?
2. What television show had appearances by and the theme song sung by Vonda Shepard?
3. What type of insect causes dogs to get heartworm?
I'd also like to take a moment to clear up some questions about my Oprah post yesterday, as well as include some additional information that I have learned. Harpo sometimes has us come in and cook food from celebrity cookbooks so that she can give bites to everyone in the audience. Recently we've done fried ravioli from Giada's cookbook and rhubarb pie from Cindy Crawford's... cookbook? Mom's recipe? I can't remember. I'd say that there's no way she has a cookbook, but then, yesterday we were cooking out of Alicia Silverstone's vegan cookbook so who knows. By the way, the 7 layer dip is pretty darn good. So that's what that was about- mass producing it for her audience. In regards to Oprah being vegan, I don't know what brought that on or how long it's going to last, but her cook has had her on vegan since January 1st. Maybe some weird celebrity cleanse thing. I'm also not sure when the show is airing. Finally, because one of my five readers asked, she was wearing green sweatpants. I was also told that she has a really raspy voice and has a whole other "show voice" she puts on. My source also tells me she was very welcoming and nice as can be and that the whole thing felt very homey and comforting as one of her dogs was following her around and she seemed to go out of her way to make everyone feel like they deserved to be there (thanking the Lord that she's not secretly an evil bitch).
Thinking really hard about a question.
Therapists signature cocktail:
Miller High Life and a shot of whiskey.
Maybe you don't want to always win the shot round.
Fuck it. Cheers!
