Friday At Five September 7th 2012: A Weekend Project

I am up way past when I normally am and I have to work tomorrow (I am writing this on thursday).  By the time you actually read this post I will be in The Red River Gorge making my way to a campsite.  I have not packed yet, I cannot find the parking permit I […]

I have to admit, I have Olympic fever. Even though I already know most of the results (appreciate that, internet), I still find myself glued to my television most nights, pleading with a 4’7″ gymnast to end all those flips with better landings.

What to do: According to my iphone, which has yet to let me down, it’s going to be 104 degrees outside my house tomorrow. This is the kind of heat that meteorologists describe as “dangerous”. So while we usually encourage outdoor activities on the weekend, this weekend we’re taking the opposite stance: only go outside […]

What to Do: We here at TTAF often use this space to advocate for outdoor activities, but considering this, we’re going to give you a pass. Chances are, if you attempt to hike, jog, camp, play golf, or even walk to your mailbox this weekend, you will burst into flame. In lieu of the great […]

Friday at Five: The Art of Conversation Edition

Administrators’ Note: To cap off Jurassic Park Week, we thought we would record and then transcribe a conversation revolving around our memories surrounding the movie. It was a grand plan, and we started things off in style at our weekly meeting at TTAF Headquarters by lighting a fire and sipping old-fashioneds. We quickly found that […]
