"Rasputin was the first thing I thought of"

My attempt at London-style meetup reports continues!
So, if you weren't lucky enough to be among the four at our meetup today, here's what happened:

We met at Crossroads at 1, where we had some tasty food and drinks and introduced ourselves. I think four people is a nice number to be non-intimidating, yet keep a good conversation going. Also, our mascot (a giant microbe toy) worked to help identify the group. That was a good idea...
Then, it was a lovely day, so we adjourned to the outdoor garden for a rousing game of Apples to Apples. We pondered deep questions: What could be pathetic and asexy at the same time? (An injured puppy, perhaps?) After that, we took a stroll down the Embarcadero. We looked at interesting boat names: "Understanding God" was deemed to be one of the most interesting. At around 4, we parted ways, confident that a good time was had.

If you missed out this time, join us in January...

omg, giantmicrobes. I think I may have just found my friend's Christmas present.

also, if you're seriously going to play Apples to Apples at meetups, I may have to officially come out as asexual. ;) I love how it's always the common nerdiness (instead of the equally strong, more valid arguments) that compel me toward this. :)

Oh cool- so which microbe did you have?
I love Apples to Apples. Probably one of my all-time favorites. It's too bad I'm not close enough to crash your meetup :P... Ah well, maybe next time, eh?

Apples to Apples! Jealous!

I really like these reports... Makes me feel like I am there in spirit. I miss you guys!
