Partial Google Talk transcript from Thursday, Nov. 12:

12:04 PM
me: a bunch of book club people formed a bar trivia team last night… we were the “Mathletes for Liberty”
12:05 PM
J: LOL…sounds like my kind of crowd…though I suck at math
me: no math questions… even so, we only came in third
me: out of like 12 teams, though
12:06 PM
J: Sounds like a lot of fun, actually
12:07 PM
me: it was indeed pretty fun
me: and, somehow, two talking heads songs made it to the jukebox with no help from me
J: LOL, nice!
me: several book club people had no idea who talking heads are… clearly, this calumny cannot stand
12:08 PM
J: WTF!!??
12:09 PM
me: “Blind” from “Naked” came on at a restaurant in asheville nc while we were there, and when i got excited, josh looked puzzled and said, “you know this strange music?”
12:10 PM
me: kids these days…
J: “Get off my lawn!!”
me: yeah
me: get a haircut
J: exactly

  1. In retrospect, I’m not at all sure we came in third. I wasn’t really paying close attention to the scores…

  2. We definitely were not 3rd. We were killed by the one hit wonders from the 80s category. Appropriate eh?
