Trivia, maybe not so trivial


Well, after a weekend spent doing a lot of socializing, with occasional forays into answering questions (really, I was not nearly as focused as I would have liked to have been), it's all over for another year. We didn't get into the top 3 as we had hoped, but did make it to 4th. Which is still pretty good.

Otherwise, I'm not sure if I'm more tired than normal because of the weekend, or if I'm getting just generally more fatigue from my slowly-growing bulk. I am equally unsure if I'm feeling off because I spent the weekend nibbling junk food, or because I had lots of junk food followed by fasting. In both cases, it's probably a bit of both.

Which is to say, there's not much of a post today. But I had fun applying a black and white filter to this photo. This is trivia in action. It's more action-packed in real life.

Oh everyone has their own computer in the trivia? ehhehe crazy!

I didn't know you were still doing it last night, that's why I thought it was odd that you were still online so late.
I also didn't know you had to drink something disgusting to take the test.
Recover from that bad taste memory soon, okay?

Yep, it is all about Minnesota time...which means it had a really normal start and end...in Minnesota. Here in Denmark, it started at midnight on Friday/Saturday, and ended at 2am Monday morning.

And to test for gestational diabetes means testing blood sugar levels. So, the idea is, you fast, then you drink a concentrated amount of glucose, then wait, then get blood drawn for measuring the levels. It wasn't that bad, just very sweet. I'd read a lot on different boards and in books about how horrid the glucose drink was, but in fact it was just mildly too sweet.

And my photo didn't capture the full effect...there were six of us, each in a different part of the room, each with our own laptops.

Even though I did craptacular from a bodily perspective, I'm so glad I participated :D

Phish, trivia was fun...the trick is to multitask...last year, I spent most of the weekend editing an article while looking up trivia, and this year, I did all sorts of stuff while also (sort of) participating in the trivia.

Ms. Black Scorpio, I think you did fine...you slept a bit, but I don't know that you slept that much more than the rest of us. And I'm glad you were there, too! :-)
