@courtney this is a really good tip except I probably haven't got that much mileage outside games any more either since I look at a screen all the time. maybe i'll talk about muay thai
@caraellison yeah, absolutely talk about Muay Thai! And part of it is forcing yourself to...be multi-dimensional.
@caraellison so yknow, read a book on the plane and then talk about it.
@caraellison I seriously once spent 90 minutes at the base of an escalator talking to some senior game whosit about the multi-year gardening plan he was implementing in his yard and it ruled.
@courtney I think this may be my new boss but yeah maybe a lot of people get into gardening and its such a nice topic
@caraellison gardening is like dwarf fortress for real life. Do you like infrastructure, physics, and being unable to perfectly control individual actors? Try: keeping plants alive and somewhat orderly!
@courtney I think the same way about cooking. Cooking is the perfect videogame because you follow the UI until you win and you get to eat your victory
@caraellison I think talking about cooking while surrounded by shitty conference food would be an extreme power move
