Kate Kohn's Colossal Conundrum

Post by mozzarella » Fri Jul 07, 2017 4:13 pm

Howdy! I'm writing a new trash tournament that I hope will be read either between the end of July or beginning-to-middle of August, but any time is really fine! It's not as themed as my last one, First Hunna Days (let me know if you want a copy), but this will be a good mix of nonsense you never encounter in QB, trash or otherwise. My internship is pretty boring so I've been reading a lot of Wikipedia and Washington Post, and I still have a frick-ton of time to kill, so I'm spending it writing ridiculous trivia.

There's something resembling a per packet distribution, which looks like:
1/0 television game shows :kenj:
9/9 random things I've read on Wikipedia this week/random things my friends have suggested be in a packet :kenj:
1/1 Korean or Japanese pop music; pop music in general tbh
1/1 things I've grown in my garden (herbs, vegetables, fruits, and decorative plants)
2/2 video games of varying obscurity (i'm a nintendo die-hard, i'll admit)
1/1 food
1/1 movies
0/1 conspiracy theories
2/2 political people/events
0/1 things I've said I've wanted to be/do/know
1/0 opera and/or musical theatre
1/1 anime
(total of 60 TUs and 60 bonuses, because I like you guys and gals.)

I'm toiling away at this packet and laughing my ass off at my own questions, so, hopefully, you will too! I guess this is a post looking for general interest or scheduling or something. Cheers, y'all!

I'm halfway through writing this and will be done by the end of July if people are looking for some pre-semester fun.

Let's get ready for a good time, boyos.

Worth noting that FACL (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20233&p=334293) is being playtested at the exact same time. Thanks to channels, that's probably not a problem, but I thought it'd be helpful so people know they can't just assume the #packet channel will be used.
