A walk, a play, and a stupENDous crossword puzzle...

I walked around the outdoor track at the IBM Rec Center at lunchtime for 30 minutes.

I listened mostly to podcasts, but ended the walk listening to a couple of songs, including my two latest purchases from iTunes: Alison Krauss' When You Say Nothing at All and Brooks & Dunn's Believe.



Robert and I saw



which was put on by the University Theater group at NCSU.



They did a really, really good job with it. I particularly liked how they used three blackboards to "check off" the scenes as the play progressed.



At home, Robert and I did quite a challenging crossword puzzle in the March 22nd edition of The Independent.

What made this puzzle a bitch was that the theme was "No End in Sight," but it didn't occur to us until after we'd solved clues with such nonsensical answers as these:

If you're a crossword puzzle person, you can appreciate the frustration of these type of answers, especially until you figure out what's going on, which for us, in this case, wasn't until the very end. No pun inted.
