'X' marks the spot!

Dear Diary,

Today’s entry is brought to you by the letter ‘X’. As in ‘X’ marks the spot. I love adventures of any kind, especially if there is competition included, but not athletic competition because then I’d loose, and who likes to loose? Give me a competition with adventure and puzzles and creativity; that I love. Treasure hunts where there are clues at each stop, where you have to figure out the meaning. Scavenger hunts where you have to find things before the other team, especially the new photo scavenger hunts where you can also have to do something at certain locations.
I love watching ‘The Amazing Race’, I love the idea of it, I don’t know that I would do well on the race, because I’m vegan and I wouldn’t do any of the ‘eat this’ challenges, and I get snappy when I’m tired (I have no idea how SO puts up with me) I get mean when I’m frustrated; basically I would make a terrible partner on that show.
SO and I recently played laser tag for the first time, and I can’t help but thing how awesome would it be to combined laser tag and a treasure hunt? ‘X’ marks the spot and don’t get shot. I know I’d play!

Until next time,  


  1. Treasure seeking and treasure maps are so intriguing. I'm enjoying reading your "diary"...I'm a photo bug, too. Lovely pics.

  2. I find I am my worst competition. I really beat myself up when I don't do well with whatever. Just today, I felt that not doing good enough demon on my shoulder.

    Competition can be a good thing in that it can bring out the best and push you to accomplishments you might not otherwise do.


  3. I remember taking my kids to lazer tag birthday parties. I would surely be one of the first players to get shot! Interesting idea combining lazer tag with treasure hunts! Julie
