A few notes about our February 2024 (24th) gathering for a talk and possibly some dancing.

This is an approximate plan for the evening, you are welcome to make suggestions:

Plan

  • 5:00 pm - Greetings, drinks, arranging food - if you arrive earlier, come in!
    + I just realized that a few of us would meet a few of others for the first time so we will play a quick round of 2 Truths 1 Lie: Everyone will introduce themselves quickly, e.g. with their name and main passions, and then tell us three things - two facts about themselves and one probable invention for the rest of us to guess which one is the deception;
  • 5:15 pm - writing custom questions for the philosophical game with 74 remaining questions, same rules, anonymously at first, you can reveal your authorship later;
  • 5:30 pm - playing the question-answering game at the table (please remind me to take a picture);
  • 9:00 pm - this dancing game (if we solve the sound problems from the last time, phone to hi-fi was an emergency solution); we could replace dancing with a pantomime-pictionary game, or continue the conversation. (PS: I fixed the laptop, moved the music to a hard drive, and will try to convert the dance playlists to Linux-playable, but at least we will have background music without interruptions).

Thank you, and text me with anything, see you soon!

Post Party Notes

I forgot the picture again, and the mocha! OK, we learned quite a few things about each other in "Two Truths One Lie" first.

Then we discussed what success in life means, what makes a good leader, whether we have free will and to which extent (opinions varied a lot, from no, through restricted by a "cage," we need to believe we have, to yes and definitely), aggression and ethics, wars and how to achieve peace and whether it is possible for humanity, can the ends justify any means, what is necessary for friendship (from authenticity, vulnerability, trust, honesty, to the ability to discuss all things and integrity).

We also pulled one introduced question about recurring dreams - it is amazing what we dream and how differently. It made me think and later understand one of my dreams with that yellow bus :) And we talked about what is better to have, beauty or luck, and got quite divided.

Thank you for liking my first hummus with some garden herbs, I have modified several Mediterranean recipes.

  • How:
    • For games, we usually sit in a circle around a table. If we are under 8, we can sit in armchairs. When over 12, around two tables pulled close.
    • Why I divide couples? In short, to concentrate on individuality and to let partners appreciate each in a new way.
  • Who: friends, a person who you would like to accompany you
  • Place: Oceanside, California, Airport neighborhood, North of 76 and Benet or Foussat, on a hill behind a small river, the house is on the right, at the round end of the short destination street, easy street parking
  • Setup: inside, leave your shoes on
  • Dress Code: dressy casual
  • Food and Drinks: we will have simple refreshments, please bring your favorite drink to enjoy, food only vegetarian / plant-based, easy to handle and share
