And to think I was worried the internet ran out of entertainment.

Oh my goats.

A very special thanks to Ms Chaseypoo for showing me this season-appropriate, smile-bringing, always relevant, goat-inspired video.

What a wonderful holiday it shall be. I'll be leaving good ol' Coloradical for Ptown and then CA--a whirlwind of family visits and Christmas cheer. I'm looking forward to it really starting to feel like like Christmas.

Usually, Denver is deep in the midst of a white Christmas by now. In fact, the mountains have been getting hammered with record snow lately. But for some odd reason the snow hasn't come down from the mountains. It was almost 70 this past weekend! A good 30 degrees above normal. That just wont do! What a bunch of BS that was. Don't the skies known that I love Mr Winter and snowfall?

I need snow dammit. So, Santa? Can you please bring those damn white fluffy holly jolly snow clouds to the metro area, please?

What a busy and Montastic year it has been. I got some fab life plans going on right now (more news on that after the holidays) and I can't wait for next year!

Tips for Single Ladies (circa 1938)

Oh how I love these! I don't know what publication they are originally from, but what lovely tips on luring in men.

Two of my favorites:
Whatever you do, don't talk while dancing you careless female! I didn't know that when men dance, they just want to dance. Good to know. I heart men who boogy. And now I know not to talk to them while they do it. Excellent.

"He doesn't want to be working on his emotions." Too perfect. This guy is so manly. He dances without talking, and he hates tears. I can basically smell the testosterone from here.

I'd be curious to see what the "Tips for Single Ladies" would be for today. Any ideas?

my 2010 Breast Cancer 3-day recap

This year I walked again (a 2peat walker!) in the Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer walk.
And, it's safe to say that this year's walk was MUCH different than last year. And by that I mean it was much rainier and colder!

See if you can tell which picture is from this year, and which is from last year.
So obviously the pictures on the left are last year. Bright, sunny, tank tops. And the pictures on the right were this year. Gray, rainy, layers.

But, do not be fooled. I loved every minute of it. Well, except this minute.
Ok fine. Even this was memorable... Day 2 of the walk was filled with pouring rain--almost 9 hours of straight rain to keep us company on our walk. Brr!
I've never done that much while being that wet. It's "one for the books" as they say. 

Day 1 was breezy and cool, and day 3 was a roller coaster of different types of weather--yes, including rain.

I walked as captain of my team, Too Sexy. Everyone did amazing and walked every mile. We all met our fundraising goals and collectively raised over $26,000. Wowie wowie.

I loved walking this year. I had my mom and aunt by my side. We even all wore the same head wraps. Check out these hotties.
Some highlights of the rainy, windy, love-filled 2010 3-Day Walk
  • My team (5 of us who were repeat walkers) showing up dressed in TONS of pink – much more pink than last year.
  • My mom’s bouncing fanny anytime she heard music blasting from all of the people cheering us on.
  • The San Diego and San Jose bike cops who kept it silly and light-hearted, even when the rain wouldn’t let up.
  • The man handing out 7&7 shots (whiskey and 7-up). Mmmm!
  • My aunt Carmen’s laughter and silliness as she kicked butt as a first time walker (and didn’t get a SINGLE blister).
  • Cramming into small school busses to eat lunch, just to get out of the rain for a few minutes.
  • Waiting for my flight home and being congratulated by 5 other walkers in the airport.
  • Being able to push through all the rain and cold and mud!
To my team, I'm so proud of you.
To my aunt, I love you and you make me smile.
To my mom, I can't believe you did better than me on the walk...again. And fine, I love you too.

Thank you to all my donors and supporters for making this year possible.

ok, some more dancing.

A lovely compilation of movie clips featuring loads o' people with their dancepants on. Gotta love it.

Methinks I needa go dancing. Hmm...

gotta love the human spirit

So, I've been slacking in the post department lately. Whoops.

I stumbled across this video this morning. And it made me smile.

A street performer. An unbridled jam session. Some impromptu dancing.

Basically, this is fantastic. Happy Tuesday.
