Pasta night

Pothole count: 36. At least. I know I avoided a few when I was overtaking lorries (the lefthand lane has more), but I also encountered one that was a good few car-lengths long which must count as multiple potholes. On the plus side the Highways Agency are about to start resurfacing chunks of the A27, but on the minus side that means nightly diversions along the A259. Eh, that can't be worse for potholes.

Tonight's game of choice was Apples to Apples, which the voteamabob throws up every once in a while. In theory it's a fairly civilized game... in practice, it all depends on what the cards throw up and what everyone is happy with. We do have a house rule for this (and Cards Against Humanity) that you can discard and redraw cards that you find too offensive, and it seems like we've gotten quite good at judging what level of insanity different people in the pasta night group are comfortable with. In this group we usually end up trending towards crazy and surreal humour instead of becoming crude/offensive - after all, why pick a really offensive thing-card when "YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PYLONS" is an option?

And sometimes the cards just end up being plain weird. This collection appeared on one of Matt's turns, and as he read out each card he commented that they were forming a very strange story...

We ended up playing beyond the official 6-card winning threshold for our group size and kept going for an hour or so of total play time - the winner was I think Jonners with Beth second (or was it the other way round - I'm not sure?), while myself and Sarah were joint third.
