Then Tim and Peter came round for dinner, bringing my birthday present with them. It was the board game Cranium. This is a truly bizarre game, and I'm not sure how to describe it. Various rounds involve such things as drawing a picture with your eyes closed, charades, modelling an object out of clay, answering a true-or-false question and anagram puzzles. Basically, there's something there for all kinds of people - and as you play it in teams, it's quite easy to match the task to the right person. However, trying to make a model of beans on toast out of clay before the timer runs out is a rather taxing problem no matter how good your artistic ability!
My throat is still sore, my nose is still blocked up, and I have an annoying earache. I missed going to see fireworks last night with Cath and Marcus because of the earache, though apparently it's just as well that I didn't go because it was very loud and smoky, and I don't like loud bangs. Instead, I watched rubbish on television, including the film Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, as mentioned in the alt.polyamory Culture FAQ. It really was a very strange film, and I didn't understand the ending at all. I'll probably comment about that more in uk.people.polyamorous, when I get a chance to read news again.

Here's a link to the thread I started about "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice" in uk.people.polyamorous.
