Tonight I went to a pub quiz organised by the IAB, where various media types sat in a German pub (the Paulaner Bräuhaus, which is almost but not quite a Brawlhaus, which would be less civilised but more exciting) and answered questions.
My team were in second place after the first half (I correctly answered the question about the 5 C’s every Singaporean is meant to want, although we missed the number of islands in Singapore (63)).
However, in the second half we crashed and burned – the second half was full of much harder questions, or at least much harder for us – other teams sweeped past us to romp to victory. Oh well, we had one hand on the poisoned chalice of quiz triumph for a few minutes, at least.
I went home, embittered but ambitious, and tried to entertain myself with computer games before realising I needed to sleep. I had a big day at work – 3 interviews, an hour of climbing and no lunch – so I need my sleep. See you on the other side.
