scribbles: Vol. 9 – February 12th, 2021

Good morning everyone! Friday has long been my favorite day of the week. When I was younger it usually meant coming home from school to then go with one of my parents to Blockbuster and pick out a movie, as I got older it meant sleepovers with my friends, and into adulthood it now means a fun meal and movie night with my wife. I hope all of you have a peaceful and enjoyable day. This volume will hopefully introduce you to some things I think will be worth your time.

Listen 🎧

At the end of 2020 I stumbled upon a history podcast that is done by a group called, The National Museum of American Religion. Their first episode came out in Oct. 2020 and they are now on episode #18. They discuss different religious leaders, movements, and events and how those experiences influenced the American story. It is very well produced and I have learned about some incredible stories from people I never heard of before such as Fannie Lou Hamer and Elizabeth Seton.

Play πŸ‘Ύ

Tara and I have been itching for something to add to our nightly activities and decided to try and find a game that we could get excited to set up and play with/against each other. We did a curbside pickup at a local game store here in Austin for the game, Sushi Go! Party. After a round or two of trial and error we not only figured out how it was supposed to be played but completely fell in love with it. It is a card game that can change each time you play it depending on the cards you choose to use for that session, similar to Dominion (one of my all-time favorite games.) The box says it is rated for ages 8+ and I would believe that to be the case. If you are looking for a new game to play with two people or the entire family, try out Sushi Go! Party.

Watch πŸ‘€

I would be very surprised if you happen to find this post and not have already seen this wholesome and short video. Going to give zero context, it is just so innocent and relevant.


Short and sweet this one. Cheers!
