If I had any morals, this would probably qualify as a Moral Conflict.

Today is Speed Racer's birthday.

But that's not the moral conflict.

Last weekend I went to Speed's exclusive birthday party. You can spin it as Exclusive when there weren't many people there. It makes you sound cooler.

Anyhoo... part of the entertainment began when Mrs. Racer whipped out Trivial Pursuit.

Speed INSTANTLY started trash texting me from across the table, telling me I was, as they say, Going Down. That part of the evening came after everyone else went home, but I digress. Heh heh...

The teams were evenly matched - Speed, Jessica and Cara versus me, RevDev and Mrs. Racer. Mrs. Racer, a wee bit tipsy, excused herself shortly after the game began, leaving me and RevDev to fend for ourselves.

Long story short, RevDev and I still won. DECISIVELY. And Speed's still bitter, so he's calling for a rematch. Here's the conflict I'm dealing with -

The rematch is not just a Trivial Pursuit game rematch.
It's a STAR WARS TRIVIAL PURSUIT GAME rematch.

Well played, Racers. Well played.

So is my desire to keep my borderline geek status in the closet greater than my desire to rip my competitor's still-beating heart out with a rusty spoon (laughing maniacally) and show it to him before I tear it into tiny bits?

We'll find out Saturday. BRING IT ON.

"bitter" is such a harsh word... But I guess if the shoe fits...

If I ever have an exclusive party, you would SO be invited :)

I know I'm going to regret this...but I've never let that stop me before...

YOU ARE GOING DOWN. I SO AM GOING TO BRING IT.

and by "it" I mean the keglet of beer.

That Star Wars Trivial Pursuit is harder than you think. I'd rewatch all the movies before the game if I were you. The minutia they include is incredible.

See, then it'll be even more humiliating when I actually KNOW the answers.

You need to come out of the closet and pwn it.

I'm going to go write a post about how I outed myself to a boyfriend. haha!

OMG. You are a Trivial Pursuit junkie too? I COLLECT Trivial Pursuit. I own a ridiculous number of them (as in, they fill their own bookcase, along with other, non-TP trivia games).

We MUST meet in person someday. I am making it my quest to ensure this.

And have you tweaked your word verification or something? Because I swear to you - today's word is "hotsac".

Humiliating to whom though? I say show up in your best Klingon costume and crush them.

Penny Karma said...

The way I figure, it's a win-win. Either I'm victorious, or I lose because I'm just not a big enough geek.

Come to the dark side. Just admit that you are a geek and everyone will drop it. Though I will no longer have fun tricking you into you showing how much you really know.

Kev said...

So Mrs. Racer is saying instead of teams, it should be each geek for themselves...

I'm going to go with you will play to win - I'm willing to bet Penny shows up and shows us all what a geek Sarah is... (see how I can tie 2 posts together? I'm just that good)

R - even after she is forced to admit her geek status, I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to remind her.

And Sarah, it was an honor to spend my birthday afternoon talking with you, and to hang out with the Ape Squad at the park for a while. (to her loyal readers - I only saw flashes of Penny today - like when she didn't wait for me to start eating a good cake - that she did not make)

And turtlegirl proves the Geek Fail... Star WARS TP. Klingons are Star TREK...

Penny Karma said...

I'm not going to say whether I caught that or not.

Kashmir Knitter said...

Of course you did. We all did. I think she did it on purpose just so we'd all out ourselves.

Kev said...

so you will neither confirm nor deny that you knew that??

I'm going to say you did.
