We started at 4 PM and finished at 5:30, then spent an hour looking things up. Topics ranged from chemistry and physics to literature, geography (of Antarctica, no less) and history, movies and birthstones. Quite the range.
It's the third year I've done this, and it's about my only active participation. I'm getting to know the members, at least the ones who like the trivia type stuff. Same time, next year, guys.
Lisa hosted this year. We had food (chicken wings, lots of chocolate), drink (I had diet root beer) and good company.
Lisa has a new dog named Claudine. She was rescued from war-torn Lebanon through Best Friends. It looks like a German shepherd, maybe mixed with a golden retriever. She's a very sweet dog. She has spells in which she attacks her hind leg, but never seems to hurt herself. She's blind in one eye. Lisa lost a dog in December but seems to be healing. She and Claudine are apparently devoted to each other.
So all in all, a well-spent afternoon. I ate a lot of junk, and got covered with dog hair.
