It Won't Be Long Now, My Pretties

Snapshot from the Loveland Basin Cam

Captured this morning from the Loveland Basin Cam. The snowmaking has started, and they're due to get real snow this weekend. Soon my plan to snowboard during the week while regular people work will come to fruition.

Weird Al - White and Nerdy

I just can't stop watching this video. Weird Al, the master of parody, is releasing another new album on Tuesday. This week he released the video for White and Nerdy, a parody of Chamillionaire's song "Ridin' Dirty". I haven't stopped laughing in 2 days - Leif and I are just watching it over and over. I guess that means we ARE white and nerdy?

Cool too is that someone already created a Wikipedia entry for White and Nerdy which talks about all the little subtle things in the video.

All About Me

Well, I usually don't do stuff like this, but I'm bored, so here's some random questions that I found on someone else's blog, with my answers. I'm sure on some of the answers you'll notice a trend...

Three things that scare me:
1) Religious fanatics taking over the politics of this country
2) Losing all my constitutional rights in the name of security
3) Something happening to Leif or my puppies, or anyone else in my family

Three people who make me laugh:
1) Leif
2) Adam
3) the Viking Table group (miss you guys!)

Three things I love (besides family members and my puppies):
1) Chocolate
2) Rock music
3) Reading a good book

Three things I hate:
1) US Cable support
2) US Cable support
3) the fact that my brother puts out very little effort to have any sort of relationship with me, besides the occassional email.

Three things I don’t understand:
1) People who don't take responsibility when they, themselves make a mistake
2) People who believe we don't have free will/choice, and instead we're controlled by a higher power
3) Why after 6 calls and 1 email in a week I can't get a US Cable technician out here to figure out why our network goes up and down randomly

Three things on my desk:
1) Macbook Pro
2) new 24" Dell LCD monitor
3) the book "1776" which I borrowed from a neighbor

Three things I am doing right now:
1) Looking forward to the start of hockey season.
2) Figuring out which internet provider I should switch to since US Cable support sucks ass.
3) Deciding what book I'm going to read when I go upstairs.

Three things I want to do before I die:
1) The terrain park on my snowboard at any resort
2) Teach my kid how to play hockey (when I have one)
3) Do something good that will make a difference

My personality:
1) Humorous
2) Outgoing
3) Restless

Three things I won’t do before I die:
1) Recommend anyone get US Cable as their service provider
2) Become a fanatical soccer hooligan
3) Root for Ohio State
