I feel like I have started this blog at a most unfortunate time. I say this because over the past few weeks I have done several things that would be very good articles for the blog. I fully expect to have more fun times like this but I want to tell a little of these past things.
The first is that I have been involved with a production of the play Into the Woods written by Stephen Sondheim. It is a musical that was first performed on Broadway in 1987. It is a fairy tail that includes such characters as Jack (from Jack and the beanstalk), Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Ridinghood and many others. It has been a very fun show! The performances are July 27th through the 29th. It should be very good.
Another unique thing that I did was a hiking trip that I went on with my friend Henry and his brother Philip. We went to Bankhead National Forest . There were tons of hiking trails. Mountain biking trails, and plenty to do outside! We hiked about about 14 miles around Alabama Hiking trail number 204. we also took some time to do some climbing along the way. It was quite an experience. If you are ever looking for a rustic camping trip, day hiking trip or an awesome place to do some rock climbing this is the place!
Okay so I will only talk about two more of the fun things that have happened lately. The first is when I decided to cook last Wednesday. While I was at work I decided that it would be fun to cook some food for myself, my girlfriend, and a few others. So I went to Publix and looked around. I finally decided that the best thing to cook would be the New York strip steaks, Fresh Corn on the Cob and some Potatoes. I grilled the steaks and the potatoes and boiled the corn. It ended up being a wonderful meal with great friends.
But the thing that has definitely been my obsession of this week is a new game that I have played four rounds of since being introduced to on Saturday. This game is called Quelf, it is a game that you have to complete tasks to move forward and you must obey your cards. Sometimes this will have you stuffing a box into your shirt and at others you will be singing a love song to your card. It is a great game to play with close friends or family! It is a weekly obsession in my book!
