We won! We won!

We've finally found a regular pub quiz in Dublin, at Russell's in Ranelagh. A good, brisk half-hour's walk from our place. Every Thursday, it's a house outing. We've been going for a good four or five weeks now, and the dude who runs the quiz knows us. He's very good, actually. Very funny and doesn't take the whole thing seriously at all. Plus, he's a fan of musicals.

The quiz is quite small, usually only maybe 8 or 10 groups. We've never won. We come 3rd or 4th, regularly, usually lagging the leader by 3 or 4 points. It's very annoying.

But last week! We actually won! Granted, it was a low, low turnout for the quiz, because something else was going on in town at the time, but, still, dammit, we won. We were so proud of ourselves. The winnings didn't offset the amount the guys spent on beer, but, still, a little is better than nothing at all.
