After a long day of rehearsal I’ve come home to work on my card manipulation skills. Nothing makes you feel like a nerd than drilling false shuffles and watching star trek but it is definatly my idea of a great Saturday night.

Thought I would feature the tutorials I’m using in case you’d like to follow along.

New Online Circus Hub in Calgary

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Fun, Showbiz, Uncategorized Leave a comment

Circus arts in Calgary have really grown in the last few years. A few days ago I put up this hub website to bring some of the lesser known local treasures into the light.

It’s a little thing but I hope it will help illustrate now much there is for the circus community in Calgary.

Attempt at Neatly Photography

A little over a year ago I came across the Things Organized Neatly blog and have been a huge fan ever since. Recently I tried it out for myself and it’s not as easy as you might think. Respect for those who do it incredibly well.

The following are shots of my organized purse and toiletry items the night before hopping a plane to Montreal.

Ok, admittedly this one is more like ‘Neatly Photoshop’.

Here is a Fun Party Game (play drunk or with children, but not both)

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Fun 1 Comment

Here’s a game that’s great for both kids and adults. I introduced the game at a Christmas party with co-workers a few years ago. My boss later asked me to email her the instructions to the game and I realized there is no write up for the game online. I figure this was my chance to add this great little game to the vast information stream of the Internet. Enjoy.

Henry & Sally – Game Instructions

  1. Take two objects, they can be anything, the sillier the better. At a dinner party silverware or a wristwatch work well. Name one object Henry and the other Sally.
  2. Now here’s where it gets fun. When the game begins you will pass each object in a different direction in the circle. Before each person passes the object to the next person they must introduce it to the receiver in the following way; “This is Henry (or Sally depending on which object it is)”.
  3. The person receiving it must ask “Who?”, to which the first person repeats the name of the object, i.e., “Henry”. The receiver will now accept the object and follow the same steps in passing it to the next person.

Object of the Game: To get both objects back to their starting places without messing up.

Now this seems simple, however when the two objects pass at some point it will confuse the player. Some people get mixed up hearing the other object being introduced at the other end of the table. The silly mess ups make this game a great ice breaker.

If you want to make the game more fun, you can stipulate that every time someone messes up, the group must start over and switch the names of the objects. Have fun!
