Too many things to write and not enough order in my head to put anything together about any particular topic so this will just be a general update on everything.
Treasure hunts and birthdays are coming up. One very very soon, on April 2nd, and I will be severely lacking in minions as Benji is going to Stanford this week and is back on said day. Ugh. An important flatmate one on June 5th, it will also need a wine glass to go with it. And another one in a different country on June 1st. So if anyone has any useful treasure hunt tips, gimme gimme!
The adventure season has started and my head is filled with trips I want to go on and boats I want to make for the boating competition. Well, not of actual ideas for the boat. Unfortunately my head is non stop contemplating thinking about ideas but not actually thinking about them. Gah!
I’m also looking up tickets to random holiday destinations: Ireland in June, Israel/Jordan in June/July, Slovakia in, well, whenever there’s a reasonably priced ticket. I’m also going to Prague/Nymburk with the hockey team in June, so June is going to cost me… Now we need to shove in the infamous trip to the wallaby island one of the weekends…
You may wonder about Israel, especially if you’re name is Jelena (hi there!). I cracked an invite, as a +1, to a wedding on July 1st. This is scary because it will be crazy religious, as they do in Jerusalem, and all separate men and women shenanigans. Not only this will give me enough material to make fun of Benji and his background for the rest of my life, but it also gives me an opportunity to create numerous awkward situations by saying things like: “So why is it that you guys always have to have sex through a hole in the blanket, I mean, Benji really insists on doing it that way but I feel like I have to find a loophole while I’m here because I just find it plain silly!”
I am a bit freaked out by the fact that in this tropical climate I will have to be wearing a dress that covers knees, elbows and collarbones! On the other hand, I’m really looking forward to walking on the Dead Sea, and swimming with dolphins in the Red.
In other news, I got contacted by a husband of a third cousin once removed of mine (I think), thanks to my blog which I was convinced no one read (except the two regulars). Yay! There’s an opportunity to find out more about the Parnica folk! I really need to speak to mum soon. (Hint! Hint!)
And fortunately not much going on on the writing front so this section will be short and to the point! I dont have time!
Back with more next week!
Or should I say philippHunts?
Philipp’s birthday is on tomorrow but I am extremely upset at February for only having 28 days! I have lots of preparations to do and it also clashed with mum’s visit! Either way this week is going to be a busy week involving balloons and helium! And a little bit of master-planning!
I’m trying to fit the huntski between Philipp’s birthday breakfast and his birthday dinner so it will only be a few hours, but considering the time constraints and the amazingness of handmade presents I think that is fair enough! It is actually quite refreshing considering all those hunts that last for weeks.
Either way, at the end of this week Joe will be a warrior and Philipp will be a fairy!
I do not want to reveal much about the actual presents just yet but they will appear here next week…
A new treasure hunt has began this morning. I feel pretty free to put it all up here, as no one really reads this blog (yeah, yeah, Benji, I know you do).
The theme of this one is Warrior! It aims at making a warrior out of an average Joe! His name is Joe, and it’s his birthday today!
You shouldn’t have challenged me Joe! I know you were drunk, ignorant of my powers and just generally Welsh but one has to learn to bear the consequences of their actions and therefore you will need to go through a tough training and complete hard tasks in order to get your smelly present!
Alea iacta est! It started today!
(I will not reveal more until later, just in case someone gets a bit too much into QR codes.)
