What a tough and intense day this 23 December 2014 has been! I devoted it all (well, almost, in the afternoon I also had a quite long and weary phone interview with business case annexed) to the annual xmas dinner I have with my friends in Varese; given that we are all very busy, someone started working, some others are getting to the end of university and so on, this year it has been very hard to arrange it all, one of us couldn't be there and two other friends just met each other for a few minutes, just the time to exchange our secret santa gifts (go watch 'The perks of being a wallflower' if you don't know what I'm talking about) and take a picture all together...! Not-even-so exhausting and very rewarding, it's always a happy time of year, when we can all gather together (something that happens more and more seldom now) and rejoice each other's company! Of course this involves playing games, and the last one we just quit playing was Trivial pursuit, media edition. Out of the many impossible and crazy questions, one was about which song Miriam Makeba became famous with, and after (of course not guessing and) reading the answer, Pata pata, we all started laughing like 'what the hell?!'...! Only after a brief search on Spotify we realised we all knew the song but had no idea about the name of it or of its singer! See, that's an example of how many things you learn with Trivial pursuit...!
