Thursday Quiz Roundup
It has been the season of the upset in college football, and apparently some of that mojo has leaked into the Thursday Quiz this week. Some of the stalwarts, apparently not civics enthusiasts, were scared off by the subject matter. Perennial Quiz stud Rex Parker ended a run of eight straight top three places, falling short of a star by a mere one point.
Keeping it all in the family, however, Sandy -- who if memory serves is in fact Mrs. Parker -- brings home her first star. It's a silver one.
Another first-time winner, Kadonkadonk, grabs the blue.
The gold star stays here at Castle5000 this week, the first finish higher than a green star for a woman several felt was underrated in DorkFest. In her entry, she wrote: If, in evaluating these qualifications, you have any lingering doubts as to my preeminent Dorkiness, please peruse the photo you took of me last winter conducting optical experiments with a pinhole camera.
Well, you be the judge:
Congratulations to the winner of The Thursday Quiz IX, the lovely and brilliant Mrs.5000!
(I'm sure Sandy and Kadonkadonk are lovely and brilliant, too.)
Surreal Detail of the Week
Last weekend, I met a guy and started to introduce myself.
"Oh, I know who you are," he said. "You're michael5000. I recognize you from the picture on your blog."
You know who I am! I'm michael5000!
That's right, y'all! I'm michael5000! And I'm not happy about the imposters and the faquers and the haters that, a leading search engine tells me, have been messin' with my name.

Dorky Weekend Football Preview
The #5 Oregon Ducks? The #4 Oklahoma Sooners? Man, I'd be an idiot not to stop following football right now and just to coast on the memories. Unfortunately, as the previous paragraph illustrates, I'm kind of an idiot.
The Ducks take on USC in a game that threatens to be very exciting. I'm guessing it will be within a score, but I honestly don't know which way it will swing.
What of the Beavs? They host Stanford, and will win by, let's say, 39 - 21.
The Sooners will take advantage of a nice weekend off to catch up on their studies.
It's the weekend, people! Enjoy it in good health! I'll expect some good stories out of you next week!
