A New Activity for Me to Beat Nisrin At

Last night we decided to add Clue to our repertoire of Tuesday Night Games. Somehow, I was conned into making dinner out of turn and, thus, almost guaranteeing my demise in Clue and Scrabble.

Nisrin/Luli's kitchen is a hot one. I sweated it out for about 30 minutes and emerged with dinner. After dinner it was on to business.

The first game was Clue. After some of Nisrin's initial head games and Megan's general indifference (plus her struggles with the term "spanner" for "wrench"), I emerged victorious. Professor Plum with the Candlestick in the Lounge.

Scrabble was a bit nastier than usual. Chris laid down the law after some hassling by Nisrin. It was something along the lines of "Nisrin, please shut up." It was all friendly in nature, but the complexion of the game was changed.

Thanks to my 57-point "jolt", I came away with the win, beating the dynamo Annika. More importantly, we all came away fuming. So many verbal barbs were thrown that I wonder if it could possibly get worse.

Luli has an excellent menu planned for next week. Unfortunately, it means increased competition and verbiage.
