Gummi Bears

Does anyone remember this? I think this was my favorite Saturday cartoon!!! I even tried to make gummy bear juice once, it just went bad.

Wake Boarding Sooooo Fun

Amy and I went wake boarding yesterday. I had a great time. Hopefully Amy did too. We did take a few pictures and she was smiling so that's gotta tell me something, right? I just had a few thoughts on my experience yesterday wake boarding. I learned how to get a little higher when jumping the wake. Remember that I haven't been in 2 or 3 years so I was a little nervous. I jumped in the water thinking, wow this water is cold. Well that only lasted a few seconds because I can warm up water really fast when I'm in a lake. So I strap on the board and grab the ski rope. When the rope tightened I thought to myself, I wonder how much pain I'll be in tomorrow? (As it turns out today I can't move my head to the left, but more about that in a moment). The boat lunged forward and I found myself being pulled forward out of the water. Finally, I thought, I'm up! I felt pretty confident as I fixed my shorts that were hiked up like a water filled sumo diaper and proceeded to go outside the wake. The water was a little choppy as I crossed the wake of the boat and arranged myself to go back for a jump. As I approached the lip of the wake at full speed it occurred to me that I wasn't really sure what I'm doing and as I hit the wake my board went up and my toes went forward.
Some of you are probably picturing this scene and imagining that I looked really cool jumping across the wake face first. Allow me to fix your horribly misinterpreted image. I hit the water with my toes and amazingly enough, that sent my face towards the water - probably at, well I dunno 176.896 miles per hour. It was fast enough that I didn't get a chance to close my eyes. I would go on to explain how it feels to hit the water at an incredible amount of speed eyes first but I'm just going to let you ponder the scenario. I guess it looked cool, so it was worth it!!!

Maybe I'll try to get some pictures posted on here of the fun evening at the Lake! Oh, by the way my eyes are fine, not even a mark. But I have to sit with my head tilted to one side to see my computer today at work. Just kidding :0)

Owen Hargreaves Congrats!!!!!

I was very excited to hear that an old friend has decided to move to England and play for Manchester United. All I can say is congratulations Owen!!! May be now I'll get to see some of his games.

Owen and I were good friends a long time ago. It would be fun to catch up with him in all thats happened in the last few years. Maybe Amy and I will try to find him when we go over to Europe.

Thanks Jill

Okay, I don't understand that much about blogging. I guess I'm a little blog ignorant. But, thanks to my sister-in-law Jill for making my blog a little more interesting. I know I won't really do anything to help the cause, but if I give my password out to enough people may be one of them will put something worth while on my blog. I'm not going to count on it....Oh yeah, and I'm going to try and write a little more on here. Don't expect anything too exciting. If you want to get some good laughs you'll have to get Jill's husband Jim to start writing again on his blog.

When I play rock/paper/scissors, I understand that scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there's no way paper can beat rock. Paper is supposed to magically "wrap around" rock, rendering it immobile? Why can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? Or why isn't paper taking over the business world one executive at a time? I'll tell you why -- BECAUSE PAPER CAN'T BEAT ANYBODY! A rock would tear paper up in 2 seconds. When I play rock/paper/scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper, I punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, "Oh, I'm sorry. I thought paper would protect you."

Weather in 'Beautiful' Colorado

Just wanted to let you all know...
we are just about to leave work and it is currently 2 degrees out... feels like -11
It is BEAUTIFUL Colorado from the warm indoors with hot chocolate in hand
sitting by the roaring fire!!
(can't wait to get home!)

More Snow

Okay I love the snow: snow boarding, building snow forts, snow ball fights, snow cones.....but enough is enough. It wouldn't be so bad if it all fell during the week but it seems to snow every weekend so that we are trapped indoors and then it clears so that we have to go to work on Monday. We have had a few snow days this winter, although they were when we were in Cancun and it was raining. I did really enjoy snow boarding last week end. I would like to do more of that (Amy likes the lodge, I think) It just needs to snow during the week so that I can get more snow days!!
