That Monty Python line is probably not the only reason I knew the answer to the trivia question on Monday night, which asked for the outdated five-letter name for Myanmar, but it didn't hurt.

After years of going to trivia night at Pixel pretty much every Wednesday until they stopped, missing really only a tiny handful of weeks when I was out of town or too sick to go out, I enjoy going to the Monday night trivia at Silky Jones but have never quite made it a weekly habit.

That may be about to change.

I've guest-hosted for Bob several times when he's needed a week off, a couple of times for travel and once when there was a Monday-night concert he just neeeeded to go to. And now, Bob and his wife are expecting a baby in a few months, which means he's thinking about retiring. He's asked if I'd be willing to take on the job as his replacement. You bet! There are probably occasional conflicts where I wouldn't be able to be there, but I'm sure I could find a sub.

He's made guest-hosting pretty easy for me, putting together nearly all of the questions ahead of time, and I realize that's even more of a commitment than just showing up on Mondays. It's a lot of what they're paying the host for, and they pay the host impressively well. But I think it'll be worth it. I might just have to ask for suggestions of trivia questions, or themes, once in a while!
