Premiere Party du Cirque du Soleil!

So… maybe my French is still terrible. Either way, last night I got the invite to the Cirque du Soleil “soft opening party” for Toruk – The First Flight. Or rather, the invite came a few days ago; the actual party was last night. If...

Hot Springs Bath House

I love baths! Any human who knows me in real life knows that I don’t even take showers (unless absolutely necessary). Baths! Baths! Baths! All day long. They are just so pleasant and relaxing. Did anyone see that episode of Friends where Chandler is all...

It’s Bridge Day in West Virginia!

…and around the world, I suppose. But these West Virginia people are on their A-game when it comes to bridges, because as we all know, the longest arch bridge in the western hemisphere is in West Virginia. Okay, probably nobody knows that. And honestly, I...

My West Virginia Family

I got to West Virginia later than I had hoped last night. Specifically, after dark. And unfortunately (though not unexpectedly for the night before a huge event) the camp site I had picked out was booked solid. I remembered passing a state park on the highway, so...
