911 call from a lady at Burger King

This is both sad and hilarious! Listen to this 911 call from a crazy lady at Burger King... I just don't understand how people like this survive daily life, but at least their existence is bringing me some laughs at work on this slow Friday afternoon!

Jacob. March. Colorado. Mustache. Crazy Headware.

Jake is in Colorado coaching for the entire month of March... sigh... but in between races, it sounds like he is having some good adventures. Just saw this pic on his Facebook profile this morning and it made me laugh out loud. I guess he doesn't have to worry about running into the fashion police out in the Colorado backcountry :) I sure miss him and I am super excited to meet up with him in Utah for some skiing and shenanegans with Ali and Trevor! 9 MORE DAYS!!!

Underwater Sculptures by Jason de Caires Taylor

Here's some weird art for ya. This guy makes beautiful sculptures of people and groups of people - except they also double as artificial reefs for reef-dwelling organisms to inhabit. Underwater sculpture. Cool because they continue to change as new organisms settle in but also a bit creepy. Makes me think of ghosts - like spirits left behind after a shipwreck or pirate attack (both of which still occur apparently). Also reminds me of the Petoskey crucifix... which I've seen in person, under water! Creepy!

USCSA National Championships

Well, this time I went to Nationals as a spectator instead of as a participant - so much less stressful! The snow in Colorado was sub-par to say the least, with about a weeks worth of melted and refrozen crusty stuff covering pretty much all of Winter Park. For us Midwesterners, however, it felt like the norm and actually kind soft at times. No tree skiing though. Crust on fluff = not fun. Kale was very surprised to see me and did a bit of a double take when I skied up next to him. He skied really well in the GS. I didn't know he could go that fast! We won't talk about the slalom, except to say that the course took out a large chunk of the field - boo. Overall it was a great trip and it felt so good to be in the mountains, hanging out with ski racers. That's my natural habitat :)
