Getting to Know you...

Last night after my roomies and I got home from our different nights out, we spent about 4 hours in our living room catching up on each other lives and then we decided to play this game, TableTopics. It is very simple; each card has a question on it and you just take turns answering them. They are so much fun and I encourage everyone to get them. Thanks to my sister for getting them for me a few years ago. There is still so much that my roommates and I don't know about each other and these sometimes insightful questions are a perfect way to learn more.

Some of the highlights we had last night were:
- What do you miss about childhood? Gina and I miss the freedom and innocence and Swati doesn't really miss childhood! Haha
- If you had the means how would you address the problem of homelessness? Swati talked about a genius method that I guess they are working on in Santa Monica, to actually give these people homes to look after and then jobs that will pay for them.
- What language would you like to speak fluently? Gina said Hebrew, Swati said Hindi and Arabic and I said an Asian language like Japanese or Chinese.
- Would you be likely to survive in the wilderness? We all answered "Hell No!"
- What is your favorite book and movie? Swati loves "Lolita" and "Apatow Oeuvre", Gina loves "The Giver" and "My Fair Lady" and my answers were "Lovely Bones" and "Moulin Rouge"
- What do you most enjoy about being single? We all love the freedom to do whatever we want whenever we want to do it.

  1. I am glad that you are still enjoying the Table Topics cards. They are perfect for breaking the ice and getting to know people, but I also love it when you ask a question of someone that you *think* you know really well and their answer completely surprises you and/or you learn something about them that you never knew.

    May you and your roommates have many more fun getting to know you nights like this. xoxo
