* Pub Quiz at The Grocery*
My posts this past week have been infrequent because of a visit from some very special guests. The friends I met at the University of Edinburgh flew down South to visit. We all met through a set of random circumstances in Scotland, and have not seen each other since in over two years. Throughout their week visit we did things I both normally do and do not do as well. Crawfish, a boat ride, The Shed, and many more fun Gulf Coast activities were on the agenda. We also went to New Orleans for a few nights where we got to take the "Haunted New Orleans" Tour as well as all the other fun tourist activities. One thing we did that I had not done was visit some of the local cemeteries including St. Louis No. 1 and Lafayette No. 1 in the Garden District. We even left an offering at the Marie Laveau tomb which was also a first for me.
It was also special to actually discuss our book club selection and pick a new one in person. We discussed The Moviegoer at Cafe Du Monde over beignets. Spending a week with my friends that love history, reading, and SYTYCD as much as I do was such a fantastic way to spend my week off. Now next year we will begin planning a new adventure. In other news I have begun reading the third book in the eBook Challenge called Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr another popular YA selection.
