Brian Regan

Me, Heather, Sheena, Brandon, and Annie went to Brian Regan at the Morrison center and we had ourselves a good time. The guy that opened for him was Kermet Apio and he was hilarious. Some of the best jokes were the ones he did about cops. Brandon kept leaning forward to look at Annie to see her reaction. One of the funniest ones was when he talked about how there is no law that says how long it has to take you to find your license, when it's the dead of winter, and freezing cold outside. We got to listen to Kermet for about a half hour and then Brian Regan for an hour and 15 minutes. My jaw was so sore from laughing. I love listening to Brian Regan because the stuff that he talkes about is so true, and his stuff his just good clean humor. The best part was getting to see his facial expressions which adds to the humor of it all. One of my favorite jokes he did was when he talked about signing a mortgage for a house and all of the papers he had to sign. He started saying are you stealing from me? Will I actually own anything when I'm done? Are you taking something from me that should legally be mine? It was a good night out with friends and totally worth the money for a good clean 2 hours of laughter.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

So last week my friend Annie and I went to a Boise Hawks game and we had a blast! Annie's Aunt and Uncle have season tickets to the game and were not able to go opening night, so they gave Annie the tickets. (Thanks Aunt Sue and Uncle Bill!) So because Annie's Aunt and Uncle have season tickets, they have their own parking spot with their name on it, and they also have their names on their seats. The best part was that they have really good seats, second row from the field right next to the other teams dug out. It was a great game with the Hawks winning by one point with a home run. Then they had their fireworks show, which is always fun cause I love fireworks! Here are some photos of the fun we had.

They had a race with some fans dressed up as a potato, a fry, and a tater tot. The potato won.

Greek Food Festival

So for the last 3 years that I have lived in Boise, every year at the beginning of June I always see some kind of event going on at the Greek Orthodox Church. My roommates and I have always wondered what was going on, and we could tell there was food involved, so of course we wanted to be a part of it. Well this year we finally figured out what was going on, the annual Greek Food Festival. The church holds the festival as a fundraiser and a way to share their culture. There was Greek music as well as Greek Dancers for entertainment. Instead of dealing with a bunch of cash to pay for the food, there is a booth at the front of the church where you buy tokens (pictured below) with values of 50 cents, $5, $10. Me, Heather, Brandon, Sheena and Matt all went and enjoyed some good eats. Then we headed to the basement of the church where they had all their pastries set up and they were delicious. We had a good time and I look forward to next years festival.
