had 'game night' at my house, which started a tad bit awkward until we all had at least a beer in us. ended fantastically with all of us in a tight circle around a pop culture dvd trivial pursuit gameboard, giggling heinously over silly mispronounciations and at our shared geekery. frobear and i RAWKED together as a team (though he did tend to kick me arse earlier at gamecube. meh. i shall get my revenge.)

i had been having a sneaky suspicion that my little group of friends, once brought together, would fit dynamically. i loved seeing scrumbles and 0vary blending in perfectly as one of the crew, and the others responding as if they had always been so. yesh. that is the stuff.

i've always been a fan of the belief that timing is everything, and that everything happens for a reason, and within its own time. part of me feels that we are all at a stage in life where we have experienced all of these different things, and now it's time for us to be together to share new experiences, to heal old wounds. but that's just my deep self talking again. in fact, i almost got a different game instead of the trivial pursuit one, one that would ask deeper questions for discussion all around, but i changed my mind at the last moment.

i loved every minute of it. although, in retrospect, i wish we could have somehow included stanieldaniel and brosely into the game a bit later so that they wouldn't have felt left out.

now, everyone has pretty much left or gone to bed, cept for daniel tapping away at jess's computer next to me. i definitely cannot wait to do this again, it was a bit of sanity that i desperately needed during this busy season.

although at first, before anyone else had showed up, i had started out being a bit overwhelmed. i had felt that during the week, i had been a bit too social, almost, and that it was time to crawl back into my inner hut to just focus on work work work. but no, i wanted to splurge on my friends. spend that extra to get that food. have them have a good time while i bake and make sure there is enough beer in the fridge. sneak that shot to larrissa. i ended up spending WAY too much in preparation, instead of saving it for my college fund, but my dears, that was my Christmas presents to you. (and pseudo birthday presents to faetal and frobear) i don't have time or money to collect little trinkets to sit on your shelves, so i chose to instead shower you with something that i hold more dear than anything physical: experiences.

again, i loved every minute of it. i had forgotten how much more wonderful it is to have a tight knit close circle of friends to always feel comfortable with, versus always going out to places more public, where you're surrounded by mostly people who you barely even know their name.

so thank you to all that came over this evening. we definitely must do it again soonly. you are my sanity.

I agree 100%. I'd so much rather be at home with the people who really matter to me than out socializing on the grand scale.

I'm glad you had a good night. :-)

me, too, i feel that it was something that was certainly needed for all. in reading everyone else's posts about the evening, it seems they had a good time as well, for which i'm glad.

maybe that will help to keep game nights a-comin' in the future!

Ahhh, it really makes me wish my friends lived closer...I'd love to do stuff like game nights. When I was close to my friends, we used to have ridiculous fun playing those stupid group games that seem so ridiculous on the commercials but my god are they entertaining when you're in a giggly mood!

*hmph* I need to make everyone I know move to Maryland.

i really miss game nights, and we have obtained a lot of FUN things to add to it, i.e. dance dance revolution, karaoke revolution, a cotton candy machine, etc..... but our place is always too thrashed for company AND we no longer have any furniture to sit on - only wooden kitchen chairs and desk chairs. i mean, it's somewhat feasible, but...

we've bought many things since then to help with 'game nights', including a game cube, dance dance revolution, karaoke revolution, a cotton candy machine, etc., but our place is always completely trashed and we no longer have FURNITURE.

so maybe some day that everyone isn't so insanely busy with life, our place is clean, and everyone doesn't mind sitting on rickety kitchen chairs or the floor, we can start having them again.

how have you been, by the way?
