Recent Tales, Future Tales
Nobody mentioned Friday night, so I'll summarize:
We played Castle, to mixed reviews. I like it, but I'm in the minority. [It's the only one in the 'small blue box' line I care for]. We traded and planted some beans. Sauron slapped the hobbits around, which was fun in a "viewing a train crash" kind of way.
Then we found out who was famous, and who wasn't. As it turns out, everyone but Jacqui knows Nibbler. And only Jacqui's partner (Jeff) could pull that name out of the bag. And the sound of one hand clapping (two fingers to the wrist) means Spider-man. FYI. As usual in any game of Celebrities, it's fun to see who doesn't know certain names. I thought Albert Pujolis (aka A-Poo, see 6:56 pm entry) got robbed. I mean, half the crowd didn't at least put the name together with baseball. I wasn't surprised, but slightly saddened, that the most decorated Marine in US history didn't ring a bell with anyone. Check out some quotes -- "We’re surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them" or "So they've got us surrounded, good! Now we can fire in any direction, those bastards won't get away this time!" The lesson here-- keep getting surrounded and winning, you'll get noticed.
Tomorrow night -- our pre-Halloween gathering. Like every other week, but now with earlier sunset!
As for last monday, I wrote my review. In Haiku. No need to add more syllables here.
