Several of the #gtstoogies have celebrated birthdays during this week so we have decided to hold a Pirate theme party after #gtchat.
The Twitter Birds and Dabrowski dogs are already enjoying the festivities. The Dabrowski dogs are playing Paaass the Paaarrcel -except Psycho Motor who is apple bobbing.
P’est Pour Parfait, the perfectionistic poodle, is watching the game; not willing to join in because he has just been to the Paws for Poise Parlour for a lavendar lather special treatment and does not want to risk getting even a single hair out of place.
Watching him, I am reminded again of his similarity to Leaping Attack Black Dog when the latter attended Sprite’s P Party. Perfectionism is indeed a two edged sword.
Dr Linda Silverman believes that perfectionism needs to be appreciated as a two-edged sword that has the potential for propelling an individual toward unparalleled greatness or plummeting one into despair. The secret to harnessing its energy is to appreciate its positive force, learn how to set priorities and to avoid imposing one’s own high standards on others.
Instead of pin the tail we will be playing the rum barrel navigation game. There are two variations of the game. In one version one participant stands blindfolded on top of the upright barrel and has to draw a path on a map on the wall guided by shouted instructions from the rest of the team. In the other version one participant stands on the barrel which is on its side and attempts to mavouveur the barrel through a set course.
For supper there is a pirate ship Birthday cake and rum balls.
On the other table you can see a poster for the film, Pirates of the Caribbean, which is playing in the Deborah Mersino theatre as preparation and research material for the #gtchat and #gtstoogies Pirate Cruise. More news about this soon!
