The Amazing Race for The Amazing Race

Wow. This has got to be one of my all time best stories.

On Wednesday night I was talking to my good friend Jonah and was telling him about the show "The Amazing Race", and how I wanted to apply this year. Jonah and I have gone on a lot of trips together and somehow don't grate on each other's nerves at all. I have a lot of respect for him and his abilities, so I thought he'd be a perfect partner for The Amazing Race. For those of you who don't know about this tv-tastic gem, it's basically a race / scavenger hunt around the world.

I meandered to the application site, downloaded the application, and began to check out the requirements. Guess when the due date for the tape was? Friday at 5pm, which meant that we had one day to create a 3 minute video, fill out the two 11 page applications and get some passport sized photos taken. Not one to back down from a challenge due to complete lack of time, I convinced Jonah to get on board.

On Where Pianos Roam

Well then, it's been a couple of weeks since I submitted a proper post here on WPR.  I've been engaged in a good bit of travelling and performing as well as various odds and ends of late, but I have now returned to my regular blogging schedule.

In this absence, I've accumulated a good bit of stuff to blog about.  I wanted to take some time today to catch everyone up on what I've been doing behind the scenes .  .  .  .

On Mother's Day, I spent the afternoon with my Mom.  I cooked a decadent meal comprised of fresh tilapia with rice and fish sauce, and I BAKED A CAKE!!!  Well, a pound cake to be specific, but a cake nonetheless.

Not having an original recipe to work from, I used a store-bought mix and my Mom's brand new oven for the first time.  (I'm on the hunt for a great pound cake recipe if anyone happens to know where one can be found.)

Here was the final result!!
