Not Necessarily A-MAZE-ING, But Definitely CORN-Y.

This past weekend was full of challenges – but none necessarily bad.

On Friday night we got together with friends for dinner and games (a card game called Hands and Feet). On Saturday Randy and I did a bit of shopping (getting me some gym gear….I’ve gone to the gym 4x in a 8 days!) and then we had our friend, Deano, over that night for more dinner and games.

This time, Randy made his famous grilled pizza on the barbecue and we played Trivial Pursuit. Deano beat the pants off of Randy and me – he’s a pro at all questions in the sports, history, geography, and entertainment categories so you’ve all been warned. Still feeling comeptitive, we then played Scrabble where I kicked their asses…but only at the last minute as a result of a single kick-ass word.

On Sunday, Randy, Chris, Pete and I headed to Sterling, Massachusetts for the “world famous” corn maze. They claim it’s the biggest, but I’ve never been to another so I couldn’t tell you. But it was rather large. The theme this year was “Lost Vegas”…get it? Anyway, We managed to find the exit within 40 minutes but kept playing around for another hour so we could a) see all of the attractions hidden within the maze, and b) collect as much free candy as we could to offset the $14.95 entrance fee.

Well, I think that last one was only my goal – the other guys were just jonesing for some sweets.

Oh, and apparently over the weekend some local sports team won a game or something.

    I love that game, but we call it “Hand and Foot”. You end up holding a hundred cards in your hand at once!
    I went to a concert last night, and the performer stopped so everyone could get regular updates on the world series. lol

    I’m with Karl, everyone at work was talking about some game that happened last night. I could give two shits about the baseball business. Or any other professional business, I mean sport. I find reading about who won scrabble on Saturday night way more interesting.

    What was your kick-ass word? And how many points did you get for it? 🙂
