A visiting I shall go

I went to stay with some friends a couple of weekends ago and never blogged about it.  A quick recap is in order:

I was introduced to the HBO show Bored to Death.  It's fantastic!  It is now at the top of my Netflix queue, so I can see the rest as quickly as possible.  We also watched the Gravity Falls episode "Carpet Diem."  It was one of the best episodes of the show yet.

While reading a bedtime story to their daughter, I learned that I cannot do the voice of Scooby Doo.  In fact, she reads so well that we alternated reading pages.

We met a mutual friend at the Quakertown Farmer's Market.  That was a lot of fun.  It's not a traditional farmer's market.  It was more like a giant indoor flea market.  We had Puerto Rican food at Sabor De Mi Tierra.  It was delicious!  I had arroz con pollo.  It was chicken stew, beans, and rice.  YUM.  I need to learn how to make this myself.

I talked with my friends' neighbor about who we thought Jon Snow's parents were.  He is a character in George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books, made popular by the HBO series Game of Thrones.  We were of the opinion that his parents are not who he thinks they are.  This neighbor is very cool.  I hope I get to see her more the next time I visit.

We played tv tag with my friends' daughter.  This is tag in which you can be safe from being tagged anywhere you run, as long as you squat down and name a television show.  Shows I named included Black Books and The Muppet Show.  I am old.

My age also showed as their daughter ran circles around me in Lego Batman on the Playstation.  I played General Zod.  Why is General Zod in a Batman game?  I don't know.  I'm old, remember?

I made us dinner on Saturday night.  I made open face eggplant melts.  It didn't turn out quite as I wanted, but my friends graciously said they liked it enough.  It needed more mozzarella and some parchment paper underneath to prevent the bottoms from browning too much.

We walked to an Indian restaurant for dinner on Friday night.  This was wonderful.  Where I live now, I can neither walk to restaurants nor get good Indian food.  I miss both of these things very much.  Combined with great company, I had an amazing dinner on Friday night.

I had an excellent weekend with my friends, as I always do.  They are great people and even better friends.  I was informed after I left that their daughter would like them to adopt me so that I could spend more time there.  Huzzah!
