Well, I got through euchre night at my house. I was nervous about it because it was a weeknight and nice out and people had been cancelling, but 8 people showed up--exactly enough for two tables, you need exactly 4 people to play a euchre game, since I imagine 99% of people who read this will have no idea what euchre is--and it ended up being very relaxed. Samih in particular was in rare form. We learned that he knows all the Spice Girls names, and that he does a passable Mr. T impression ("I pity da fool dat don't trump dat ace!"), and that if you respond to his bizarre stream-of-consciousness rambling with "Have you taken your drugs today?", he will look at his arm for track marks.
It's always a fun night when you're at a table full of straight men who are giggling hysterically, even though not a single beer has been consumed.
Also...happy birthday, hippywitchknits! Though I hope you are doing something fun and not sitting at home alone reading other people's lj's.
