Saturday afternoon and evening were spent in Middleton at Natalie and Dan's house playing games. Had a great time. All present are great company. Dan's special salsa, guacamole and stuffed mushrooms were divine. We played 80s Trivial Pursuit and 80's Scene It.... People. I lived through the 80s. It was MY decade. So why can't I remember any of it? I totally tanked at Trivial Pursuit and did only marginally better at Scene It. Friend Jen blames the memory loss on all of the Aqua Net we inhaled trying to get our hair stand up like that. I'm going to go with that rather than the fact that since the 80s was MY decade, I'm probably old enough for early onset dementia!
Today I met Friend Scott at a local coffee shop to attempt to teach him to knit. It's a good thing he's clever because I am a terrible teacher. I was sure one or the other one of us would leave in an ambulance with pointy sticks sticking out of our anatomy somewhere. But turns out he's a natural (a term he prefers to 'idiot savant' as it turns out) and caught on VERY quickly. It was fun to watch him go from:
So it was a good lesson. No one was injured. No restraining orders were filed and we were still happy and friends at the end. And I suspect I may have lured another one over to The Dark Side. All in all a great beginning to 2010. Hope you're off to a wonderful start too!
