The Envelope, Please…

Wow! What a blast! We had a full day of trivia in The Unquiet Library today with ten teams participating during fourth lunch, eleven teams during fifth lunch, and nine teams during sixth lunch. In all, it was about a billion people. 😉 But who ruled the day? Was it the conquerors from the November round of trivia? The Pink Draculas? Team 3? Whatever the Ricky Bobbys were known as in November? Heck no! We had a whole new round of winners who came in and cleaned house and took the trophy (or should I say the pizza?) right out from under last month’s winners’ noses! The winners will have a pizza party during their lunch periods on Tuesday, December 14. Go winners! And the winners are (drum roll, please):

  • Fourth lunch: Chocolate Thunder (Kendall L.,  Austin N.,  Mark M.,  Joni L.,  Kate J., and Lindsay G.)
  • Fifth lunch: Purple Drank (Brittany Y., Miriam H., Matthew L., Laura L., Brittany R., and Elise S. )
  • Sixth lunch: A Cubed: Alisha W., Haley P., Alyssa P., Genay M., Natalie H., and Trianna B.

OK,  some things to remember for this week. The Blatant Bibliophiles are meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, at 8 AM. If you are doing Reading Bowl and you missed Mr. Bradford’s meeting today, I will have a little bit of info for you. Also, we are having Trivia on Friday, December 12. Trivia will begin promptly at 11:45, 12:45, and 1:45. You can come to the media center at the beginning of each lunch period and bring a sack lunch or something from the cafeteria. We will have snacks and drinks. The winning team from each lunch will have pizza next Tuesday, December 16 during your lunch period. If you are participating in Reading Bowl, I have a list of rules and some sample questions. You also need to let Mr. Bradford know for certain that you are participating and what books you are reading so that we can make sure that we have all twenty Peach Books covered.

Remember all those guys and gals who won at trivia last Friday? You remember, Team Superior (brilliant yet bobbyish), Team # 3 (boring yet brilliant), and The Pink Draculas (brilliant yet beautiful–plus Tim). Well, here they are enjoying the fruits of their labor: pizza, Coke, Sprite, popcorn, and cupcakes. The first round of trivia was so successful that trivia will be back on December 12!!!!! To see the entire set of pix, check out Mrs. Hamilton’s flickr photostream. Stop by the media center for a form and get your team signed up ASAP. The deadline to sign up your team is Monday, December 8. Who will win next time? Will it be new competitors “Er”? Don’t think they have what it takes to take on the champs? We shall see!

Trivia Winners Take the Prize!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on November 14, 2008

trivia2-002

Three tough teams out of Creekview trivia 23 teams of braniacs proved themselves worthy of the challenge today by answering tough questions and defeating their honorable opponents. The winning team from fifth period lunch was Team Superior, featuring Nathan K., Craig B., Kyle S., Ben S., Caleb C., and Cory N.  You may recall that several of these guys were on one of last year’s winning teams, The Ricky Bobbys. Team #3 was the winner (yes, you are right, that is the most boring name in history, but at least they’re smart!) composed of Alex, Gabby, Aaron, Brecken, and Shelby. In sixth period lunch, the Pink Draculas, featuring Lana B., Nicole W., Ashley C., Kaitlyn C., and Timothy M. defeated all challengers to take the crown. You may recognize some of these players as members of one of last year’s winning teams, The Sassy Six. Congratulations to all participants, you did a great job, guys! We’ll post better pictures next week when we snap some at the pizza party which will be held on Thursday during each lunch! Thanks to everyone who participated and to Dr. Eddy for the snacks.

You Asked for It; You Got It–Trivia!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 28, 2008

The Blatant Bibliophiles will sponsor Trivia Friday on Friday, November 14 in the media center during 4th, 5th, and 6th lunches. Please see Mrs. Fleet, Mrs. Hamilton, or Mrs. Beasley to sign up your team. All teams must be registered by Monday, November 10 in order to participate. There is a limit of six students per team, and obviously all members must be in the same lunch. The winning groups will share the prize, which will be awarded to the winning team of each lunch period. Trivia will start promptly at 11:45, 12:45, and 1:45. This will give you fifteen minutes to run errands, hit the restroom, or pick up a lunch (which you can bring to the media center–or you can bring a brown bag lunch). We will also provide snacks! See a media center staff member for forms and get them back to the media center ASAP. And don’t forget, we love cool team names. But keep it school-appropriate.

To Trivia or Not to Trivia? That is the Question?

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 10, 2008

Remember how much fun we had playing trivia last year? Well, maybe, just maybe we should do it again. If you would like for the Blatant Bibliophiles to bring back trivia for 2008-2009, reply to this post by clicking on the title and leaving a comment. Check out the blog manners above if you don’t remember how to leave a comment; mainly, just remember to enter your first name only when you’re online. You can help out with trivia by participating, encouraging your friends to participate, and maybe helping out with getting the refreshments out if you’re not participating.

The Return of Trivia!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 26, 2007

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Bibliophiles and other members of the intelligentsia gathered in the Unquiet Library today to match wits against each other in the second round of Grizzly Trivia. While all teams provided some amazing answers, there had to emerge a winner in each lunch group. The fourth period winners were The Blue Goats, consisting of Brett, Justin, Jake, and Sky. Team Guee, Requiem, The Plethora of Plebian Pineapples, The Mind Freaks, and last month’s winners, Ricky Bobby, were edged out. In fifth period lunch, The Ragin’ Cajuns were victorious, with team members Josh, Allen, Justin, Nathan, Thanos, and Zack narrowly destroying The Haminators and The Sassy Six. In sixth period lunch, Team Whatchaka-Wi-Woo was dealt a narrow defeat by Team X-Treme, composed of Kristen, Kinley, Kayla, Laura, Kuwanda, and Trianna. This month’s winners will be treated to a pizza party during their lunch period on November 5! Trivia lovers take note: we will be hosting our first afternoon trivia on Monday, November 5. There will be three rounds, at 4PM, 5PM, and 6PM. Students, parents, and staff are invited to attend. Please sign up in the media center as soon as possible if you plan to participate.
