Pictionary

Miming version, not drawing.
I have been trying to gather a group for a pictionary game for about a year now, and finally it happened. We had a lovely evening of people who not necessarily knew each other to begin with, and yet acted and mimed and enjoyed themselves.

And of course, I placed on the tables twice as much food as was needed, I had twice that amount in unopened bottles (where did that bottle opener go?), and I found an equal amount of serving plates (which I had worked hard to prepare) in the fridge, after the guests left. Luckily, I listened to mulix in time, otherwise those vegetables which I left untouched would have been chopped as well.

We tried to have an evening of not-geek jokes, but it seems that most of uswere having troubles in that direction. It is kind of like playing "yes no black white" (the person who says either of these words first loses), where the forbidden words include Linux and computers. We still gave Win98 support at midnight, and still when I asked Muli for some CDs to play, he came with Gentoo-Knoppix. Personally, I prefer listening to Enya.
