It's Going to be Amazing
I first read about UrbanMAX over at Kris's site. Being an Amazing Race fan myself, I was immediately obsessed with the event coming to Brisbane in October.
The Urban Max is part adventure race, part scavenger hunt with a mix of the amazing race. It is a completely new format of racing that will take teams of two through the heart of the host city. Competitors will get to visit some of the cities [sic] most famous landmarks, as well as suburban areas, while completing a variety of activities along the way.

This event is for all skill and fitness levels, with a number of the activities needing more brainpower than muscle. Speed alone will not get you over the line first!
Hello! Awesome! Registration is open, and we are officially entered. It's a bit pricey at $90/person, but I figure it's a great way to see the city in a way I probably otherwise never would. We're in the Mixed Couple / Social category. Not being in the competitive category will probably prevent our marriage from suffering. (See my previous declaration.)

You Don't Know What You Got 'Til It's Gone
I was given a box of Junior Mints this morning. Junior Mints are not a native candy species. I have been told by people here that they watched Seinfeld and wondered what they were like.

Twistori updates with any tweets from Twitter that include the words "I wish", "I love", "I hate", "I believe", "I feel", or "I think". It's nice and pretty. Plus I just saw the funniest one ever. Someone said "I wish my lawn was emo... so it would cut itself." Terrible, but hilarious.

I'm also contemplating the purchase of these Twitter-inspired t-shirts. "That's what she twittered." Ha!

Junior Mints!!! mmmmmm. Although I did just have a Hershey's candy bar the other day. Picked it up at a store right around the corner from our place. Kind of takes the excitement out of it knowing I can have one when I went. Kind of. Not really.
