Three weeks ago it was the second Shibuya Pub Quiz for my school where a handful of students, teachers (all sporting wigs and Japan headbands) and the school manager gathered for an evening of British pub culture………or something like that. Sadly it was a case of ‘hero to zero’ for me as I went from champ (2007) to chump in the space of a year for the simple reason that the right questions just didn’t come up and the fact that I didn’t write any of the questions this year! Better to get the wooden spoon/booby prize than nothing at all is what I say!
After that some of us went to a karaoke room to sing, drink and play poker which I had never played before and probably never will play again which is probably no bad thing as its not the kind of thing I want to get addicted to. I only lost a very small amount but generally had no idea what I was doing and just got bullied out of ever recovering any lost ground.
