We were playing board games a few days ago and after finishing up the game my Finnish friend Henna showed us a game she learned at some Global Politics conference thing she was at awhile ago. She said they used it for team building. The funny thing is that when I did a search for it on google I only found two mentions of it: once on a Finnish site and another time on an Estonian girl's Blog. This game is simple enough for a 5 year old, but tricky enough to stump anyone. Anyway here is what you do:
You will need at least 2 to 3 other people to show it to. Memorize this line: "This is the pointing game, listen very carefully and tell me who it is". And say it while pointing randomly at different people in the room, pointing at a different person as you say each word. Everyone then guesses who "it" is. The trick is that you have no control over who "it" is, the "it" is the first person to talk after you say your line. If no one gets it after repeating it 2 or 3 times you can put a little more stress on "listen", but you must under no circumstances tell them the secret.
I went to a British friend of mine's house last night on the way to a bar last night and she had a friend from Ireland over for the week. The Irish girl was very very obnoxious, but also funny because she said "Top 'O the Marnin' to ya"; just as a joke though. The British girl's accent is pretty good too; it's really thick and difficult to understand sometimes. I think she said she is from Whales.
I haven't been taking my camera with me very often lately, but today we are meeting in about 30 minutes to see an interesting sculpture and take some pictures of it. They may be online later today.
