We’re having a great time today, it’s Gaming Night!! A bunch of my daughter and son-in-law’s friends are coming over, with and without computers and monitors, to do gaming. We took the dining room table into the garage for computer gamers. The VR/Oculus players will be in the family room, and the console (X-box etc) gamers upstairs. We set up a buffet with portable tables in the dining room for food and snacks. Then in the living room on the big-screen TV we’ll be having a Sex in the City marathon for the non-gamers. They expect to be gaming into the night, and we have an extra bed and huge air mattress if people need to stay over.
We’ve got a ton of snacks, including DingDongs, HoHos, Funions, Doritos and Fritos, as well as tortilla chips and salsas. One of our friends brought tri-tip roasts which he grilled outside, and another friend brought smoked chicken. We also have a dozen little bottles of peanut butter whisky (???!!!), someone made mojitos, and my daughter put together a huge jug of Mountain Dew margaritas (which she described as bad-decision-in-a-cup). Also a friend brought 5 bottles (1 for each color) of… get this… Skittles Vodka.
Check out some of my TikTok videos I made as we were all setting up; I’ve posted them on FB, Twitter and Instagram as well as TikTok so you can find them no matter where you look!!
I’m now full of tri-tip and chicken and going to go put my feet up, since this also coincided (naturally) with an exacerbation of my bad pain, so I’m enjoying this a lot less than I might have done, except I’m having a ton of fun taking videos from my recliner, LOL!
I’ve proposed we do this monthly… it’s FUN! I’m not a gamer… actually I’ll be working on my next manuscript as much as my back allows, and at some point my Inner Introvert is going to rebel and I’ll slink off to my room to read, and that’s fine too!
