DC Dialectic Dilemma

And you would take??

Only in DC would we be this nerdy, only here would we be so competitive, only here would I be debating with my friends which we should do tonight – DC Bee or Wonderland Trivia Fight – based not on the booze or babes, but which would be more brainiac.

As even a cursory review of my writing shows, DC Bee ain’t for me. I be a Wonderland Monday Night Trivia Fight diehard. I know the middle name of Mayor for Life, Marrion S. Barry, Jr. but just in this post alone I’ve called in spellcheck six times.

And you – would you focus on the harsh, constrictive, and rule-bound arrangements of letters, or the free flow, broad based, inclusive world of fun-loving trivia?

    I, however, will be kicking it at Four Courts this evening. We’re reigning champions, and last week our B team took 2nd, so we’ve got some gift cash to use at the bar this week! Woo!

    4 Courts = suburban bush leagues

    Wonderland = harDCore urban warfare

    Don’t make me remind you that a team did know all 15 Republics in the Soviet Union.

    Arlington? Not the burbs.

    Wonderland? Not all that.

    Just sayin’.

    I *will* take you down if you come to my house :D

    Only Wayan would portray the dictionary as an oppressive force.

    While I can spell, the whole spelling bee thing is far too reminiscent of middle school for me. No desire whatsoever to relive those days.
