Last weekend at the Northwest Region's Main Event (a youth talent competition and worship weekend) I grudgingly - because I'm not a big fan of silly youth games - participated in The Youth Pastor Games. It was touted as Hunger Games meets Fear Factor (minus any killing).
I made it through the first two rounds by naming more Hebrew holidays than Lucas Finch and then drinking a jar of nasty foods (not sure all that was in it but it included caviar, sardines, pig feet and more) blended together, topped with whipped cream and a live worm (a big one). I drank it all and advanced to the final round.
The final round was a timed competition of physical activities and math. I finished with the fastest time and won an iPad 3. Kinda cool. I contemplated just selling it and using the money for something else, but I ended up keeping it. It will prolong the life of my 2007 MacBook Pro which is fading fast.
I ended up taking the 3 back to the store and exchanging it for a refurbished iPad 2. The one I won was a 16 gb and I could get a 32 gb iPad 2 for $50 less than the 3. I'm really enjoying it so far and am getting used to it.
So... I have a pretty good grasp of what apps I need and want, but does anyone have some suggestions of what is useful/enjoyable for them?
