a lot of people showed up and we played the number one game of 1996 -- settlers of cataan (?). it is basically civilization lite. it was fun and involved road building, and trading sheep for bricks or wood. after a great start (longest road!!) carol and I pretty much gave up hope and looked to the lottery for salvation.
jon won in a surprising victory and soon we turned toward contortionism and old summer camp tricks for entertainment. four square pushups, trust falls, lindy-hop demonstrations, levitations. it was all sort of random, but different in a good way.
okay. guess i'll go to sleep.
