I like pretty things

potluck 2018

Got to Potluck early for the first time on a Saturday since I was leaving early. Got into a car with Kate, Ben and Gulnara, who accidentally took a dose of nicotine pill and it messed her up for an hour.

The house was giant as usual. I got a smaller room. And the first day was super chill with hot tubs and lasagna.

Day 2: Sunday also pretty chill. I spent a bunch of time applique-ing my leotard. And chilling and hanging out and eating too much because people keep cooking.

Day 3: today was the actual start of sessions and then later today I'm teaching improv!

improv 2018

That was exhausting. This year I got scheduled after dinner, and it was a carby pasta dinner. So I felt sluggish and tired, and I'm guessing a bunch of the potluckers were as well.
I did about 1 hour and 40 mins of games, and felt that the energy level was lower.

the rhyming game was really hard for people, and didn't do as well.
I need a microphone.

I did throw in an authentic relating game, "What I notice when I'm with you..." It was interesting, about three pairs gave up on it, and there about about 4 pairs really stuck with it and got a really deep time.

overall, I think people enjoyed it, but definitely no more improv after carby dinners.
