Party assessment

Busy weekend, particularly for someone gradually succumbing to sickness (I spent the day with wet feet, and came down with a cold a few days later. My grandmother was right all along! Must find that scarf...) Despite this, I managed to attend three parties in as many nights (though I didn't actually manage to do anything else). Enhancing all three were the universally improving ingredients jinty and tortipede, and, of course, the lovely tinyjo.

For simplicity's sake, and to facilitate data analysis to ensure that I'm meeting my Mandatory Fun Performance Targets, I will present the results in tabular form:




Host bluedevi Julian cleanskies
Type Pub meet Cocktail party Summer barbecue
Occasion Birthday Just that kind of guy Birthday
Drinks drunk 4 4 4
- Of which fruity 4 2 0
- Of which beer 4 0 4
Service Cheerful but overworked bar staff Cheerful but incompetent cocktail mixer/architect Cheerfully pragmatic self-service (though pre-mixed Pimms was provided)
Cats None Lily, extremely affectionate party-crasher 'Keith Chegwin', skulking by the shed.
My dress Tight black fake-snake-skin trousers, tight t-shirt with pixelated dinosaur. Black velvet pin-stripe suit, lavender shirt with open collar Slightly sparkly blue boot-cut jeans, custom Daily Dinosaur Comics t-shirt
- Accused of looking like A cyberpunk Beck Tom Cruise
Divisive discussion topic Religion Religion Feminism
- My response to said discussion Fled Participated, though unsure to what extent my drunken ramblings about Discordianism actually helped Sat quietly, coughing
Amount of voice left by the end 80% 60% <30%

If anyone fancies performing some initial number crunching or peer-review on the above raw data, feel free.

Interesting. When you say religion was divisive, was that between people who thought it 'evil pernicious nonsense' vs those who thought it 'pernicious evil nonsense' vs those who thought it 'nonsensical pernicious evil' etc.?

Ooh, there was a juicy religion discussion? I seem to have missed it. Probably for the best. (Though you're probably going to tell me I was involved in it and just don't remember.)

No, me and Tim got going in a corner on whether or not the existance of God is provably false. He was very mellow though :)

This does depend on everyone having implicitly agreed in advance that God is someone/something of whom existence can meaningfully be predicated, and what kind of God they're talking about. I think Dawkins et al and the fundamentalists are all happy that they're talking about the same kind of God... but I'm not :)

A significant amount of wine had been consumed - I'm not at all sure I could tell you what kind I was talking about!

As I recall the divisive topic on Sunday was Harry Potter. I seem to recall coming down on the side of sending them all to a gulag as enemies of the people.

Topic of doom on Sunday was Harry Potter, even more controversial than communism.

I'm still reeling.
