Friendsgiving Craves and Savors

Friendsgiving

friendsgiving2

Shouldn’t we be able to make our own holidays? It only seems right to have a day to celebrate friendship, so we and some friends of ours all got together at Di’s fantastic new place for a Friendsgiving potluck dinner to eat great food and enjoy the company of one another. We scarfed down some flavor cravers: catered Persian food from Raffi’s, homemade Spaghetti, a crazy good zucchini and asparagus medley, spinach and cheese pastries, ice cream cookies, homemade Tiramisu, fresh strawberries, a Mexican chocolate pie from the Pie Hole, and we were able to wash everything down with some wine and liquor. Friendsgiving also wouldn’t be right with out getting a little silly, so we played Heads-Up, an application on iTunes (which every one should download and play) which is like a high-tech version of headbands and the Cranium board game WOW edition. For Cranium, we split the group into two, the “C-words” (those who like girls) and the “D-words,” (those who like boys). While I don’t think we ever finished the game, playing was better and far more entertaining than winning anyway (usually said from the the people who didn’t win, but really, playing was better!). Although there was never a successful attempt at either team spelling a word backwards correctly, and accusations of cheating, we had had a blast and got to know each other a little better. Our team also discovered our best subject, MINDMELD, where team members are given a topic and must each write down three words that come to mind. The team wins if at least two (but changed to three) members match a single word. You’d think that’s easy to do, but from the topic Cruise Ship, I thought of Ocean, Vacation, and Food, while Jax wrote Gambling, Bikinis, and Hooking-Up. Hilarious! At least three of the five of us had Ocean come to mind. We ended the night on a high note, with a lip syncing contest (with words, not a lip-reading contest… inside joke), and although we didn’t want the night to end, there were so many moments we savored. Plus, the great thing about Friendsgiving is that it can be celebrated multiple times a year.
