Holiday Craft Project

So as is the custom when a team completely destroys all competition at trivia, we brought home the trophy last week and got to add stuff to it. Turns out we’re good at trivia but pretty crappy at organizing time to do creative stuff to a trophy (“I have markers.” – Camden) so Dale and I wandered in to Hobby Lobby, spent four minutes(!) in the kids’ crafts section, grabbed random stuff, and wandered out. Fantastic. Here are the highlights:

A shout out to Duffy and his weekly speech about “Just a reminder, there is no use of iPhones, Blackberries, schnozberries, we do have free wifi here at the Tavern but if you’re Googling something, it’d better be porn!”
TToA “Googling Porn Since 2007”.

Our team name won us an extra 5 points this week, so we had to commemorate it somewhere on the trophy. We’re gonna be a little more hard up (TWSS) for trivia team names after January 20. It’s been a good run, ol’ George.

We didn’t want to be too holiday-y but we had to add some jingle bells. Hopefully they’ll go on to annoy other winning teams for years to come.

Mary putting the finishing touches on. Note the feathers. I thought that was a classy touch.

Annnnd the finished product! Shoes, paint pen, feathers, googly eyes, jingle bells, a button that plays “Happy Birthday” when you press it, and a Hannah Montana guitar with a pic of Cam and Duffy snuggling. It’s seriously the best trophy ever. Plus it has all of our names on it, because we ARE the TToA.

Do you think we’re taking this too far?
I don’t think we’re taking this far enough.
I just got goosebumps.

We’re defending our title on Tuesday night, all suggestions for team names should be directed to the Facebook group. Aww we’re nerdy but I love us.
