Life and the Gauntlet

I just attended Tap Dogs this evening with a group from Pathways Church. Good times- the food beforehand was excellent (a mojito, wine, trout, and outstanding coffee and dessert), as was the show itself. Didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did, considering it was tap dancing; however, the energy displayed was most entertaining.

Apart from the great evening this evening I have had some great times in Denver both within and without the salt mines. I have attended a couple of Rockies games with excellent company, and the experience was always most enjoyable. Looking to hit up one more game to celebrate a friend's birthday next Tuesday- should be a blast.

The Gauntlet also goes well. Have stayed on target thus far this week, and am actually mildly ahead of my friend. Alas this will be more a matter of the tortoise winning in the end, rather then the hare. Nevertheless, it is good to be reading the good book again- makes for good reading on the train in the morning.

Also looking forward to the elections in November. I was thrilled when I found out that I could still register to vote with my address change. If you haven't registered to vote yet you can do so here. I encourage you to vote, and to vote for those who believe in fiscal responsibility. I'd kind of like the dollar to be worth more then Monopoly money ten years down the road. Of course a gold standard would help in that regard, but I shall refrain from getting on that soap box.

Still enjoying my iced coffee, and rather enjoying cold mint tea as well. Hoping to have a large glass of it in celebration in November.

Let the Gauntlet Begin...

So today began my Bible reading contest with my friend. Began by reading Gen. 1, Josh 1, Psalms 1, Prov. 1, Is. 1, Matt 1, Rom 1, Acts 1, Job 1, and 1 Thes 1. Obviously a interesting reading schedule, but the goal is to get through the Bible within 269 days. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.

As for the rest of life things go well. Still hammering away at the job, attempting to maintain a social life, and ensure I don't burn down my apartment. Looking to start back at church now that I'm settled up here, though not sure where exactly to land on that front. Must be orthodox for sure.
