The Fourth [Jul. 4th, 2004|09:04 pm]

[mood |calmcalm]

Spent last night helping duckmonster move, it was really fast since there were like 10 people and only 15 boxes or so. Then a bunch of us hung out for a while at her new place. The others started playing a game called 1000 blank cards, which sounded like a new-age version of truth or dare to me. Instead of playing, I just made more cards. Most of mine sounded like MtG cards or Fluxx cards though, so maybe I'm boring and uncreative :)

Went home around midnight. Today I went out to Mad Mex with a little birdie who told me that I missed the more "interesting" parts of the card game last night. Pretty typical, since historically I manage to go home before there is much nakedness at the Scotch & Soda parties too. :)

Spent today cleaning my external frame backpack (something I probably should have done atleast once before now, given I've had the thing for over 10 years at this point), fleshing out more of my trip, and just generally putzing around. Got some recommendations last night to skip Petrified Forest NP in favor of Monument Valley and Bryce Canyon, so I think I'm going to do that. I think I'm also going to skip Joshua Tree NP in favor of arriving a day earlier. This should give me almost an entire extra day to get settled after I arrive, so it should be helpful. Joshua Tree NP is also probably close enough that I could visit it in a weekend later this year if I so chose (I'm still really amazed at just how good a deal the annual National Parks Pass is going to be on this trip :). Its also really useful that reservation websites don't close on holidays.

blah

I didn't realize it was like "truth or dare" until we'd been playing for a good long time. I am going to claim that I was exhausted, and that's why I was so slow on the uptake.

We should so have played Balderdash. There's no naked in Balderdash.

Anyway, thanks for help in moving. It would have been really hard for just me to do all that, so even if the number of people seemed to be overkill, eh, I consider that a good thing. And it was more people hanging out at my house, afterward, which rocks. People should hang out at my house all the time.

Re: blah

Really? It still sounds like ToD even if the actions are "innocent" as long as it involves "making people do stupid/embarrasing/random stuff"

Re: blah

Hmmm, I wonder why this message (and the one from carpenter) didn't result in an email notification to me...

Re: blah

The first one about which I got an e-mail was this one. ("Hmmm, I wonder...")

I haven't played ToD variants since high school, except, I guess, for "Deprivation"/"Never Have I Ever." (Which, granted, reveals quite a lot, but is better in that nobody answers alone. Usually.) And in high school, I guess we all knew a sufficient amount about one another's sex lives [or lack thereof :)] that we didn't bother with those questions. We might also have been real losers, in that there was generally a "no nudity" rule.
