For the last week or so I’ve been spending a fair bit of time thinking about magic and various tricks with card, coins, pens, etc. This is entirely because of Dan. We ever made a special trip to a magic shop where Dan bought a book that I then remembered I’d bought online many years ago.

I like going through little fads for a few weeks and then doing other stuff. It’s nice to have some variety. I do wish I could stick with one thing for long enough to get really good at it though.

Last night at the pub quiz I did the only magic trick I know how to do with a coin: making it disappear. That’s not some sort of pun based on spending money. I think it went down fairly well with the Fairmont House crew, so that’s good. Also, at one point Aron was holding a pen and he span it around. It’s something that’s been on my list of things to do for quite a long time, right along with winning a pub quiz. Needless to say neither goals were achieved. 🙂
