That other deer

Last evening was a great time, I got to do a few things I love that I haven't done in a long time. Drink margaritas, eat chinese food and play cards.

We dined on the rooftop patio of some friends who used to be our upstairs neighbors when we lived at the loft. The pic above is the southwest view toward downtown.

It was a delightful, warm breezy evening. The time passed quickly as we gabbed about whatnot, and noshed on the Chinese food. We played a game of Shanghai, (a progressive rummy game) and then had a delicious fruit tart for dessert. After cards, we played a bit of Celebrity Taboo, which is always good for some laughs. The best laugh of the evening came when Serge was the one guessing clues and the Celebrity to guess was Rudolf Nureyev. In trying to get Serge to guess the first part of the name, the clue given was "Blank the Red Nosed Reindeer." You'll never guess what Serge shouted out. Bambi. Yes, apparently the song in French does not contain the name Rudolf, so Serge blurted out the other famous deer. Ah how we laughed.

Sounds like a good night. I love playing games.

I suggested some friends and I get together once a month to eat dinner, and play games, and everyone's reaction was,"once a month? Oh wow, that's too much."

Too much? What are these people doing every night?
