Hey World! I'm 30 So Take That!!! [Jan. 29th, 2006|04:00 pm]
Scott Baio Ain't Got Nothing On Me
Well my birthday came & went. Whitney took me out to Dinner at Figlios last night. Kleczewski tagged along. The meal was great, and then afterwords we ended up at Spyhouse after almost going to Comedysportz & The Graphic Noise exhibit at MCAD.

I ended up going to MCAD today to check it out. I sugest anyone else in the Twin Cities go & check it out as well. Hundereds of concert posters & prints of all kinds of bands from all over the country. It was as cool as the SHAG showing I went to last fall.

Tickets... [Jan. 23rd, 2006|07:54 am]

I got tickets to see Belle & Sebastian with the New Pronographers. I havn't been to a show in a while, & I have been wanting to see both of these bands for a while. So score for me.

So 30 in T-minus five days. Five days left in my twenties. You know, growing up you know one day you will turn 30. But really there is nothing you can do to prepare yourself for actually turning 30. It's kind of trippy. I feel like I have done so much more before turning 30. I guess I should embrace my new found age with welcoming arms. I mean, at least I'm not 40. Fuck it! Here comes 30............

Cold Freeze... [Jan. 3rd, 2006|07:49 am]
Scott Baio Ain't Got Nothing On Me
On New Years Day at approximately 10:00am, I jumped into Lake Minnetonka. I was one of the last people to do this out of approximately 500 people. I have not attempted this before, but I chalk it up to one of lifes little experiences we all should try one day before we die (like drinking those Jones soda holiday sampler packs).

Anyway, the water was frigid. I have attended a handful of frigid Packer games at Lambeau before. During these games the clod can really get to you. You start out warm, but the cold keeps trying to penetrate your skin. Sitting there it gets further & further into your body. You can actually feel your organs getting icy.

With this arctic plunge as ALARC likes to call it, the experience is entirely different. Yes it's cold. But it's more of a shocking thing (surprise surprise). You jump in, and your heart stops for a couple of seconds. Forget about breathing. The ability to take a breath is sucked inside of you. The sensation of taking my breath away; this is it.

ALARC has a silly little rating system for repeat jumpers. I was a first timer, which is considered a guppy. If I return in future years, I will be a minnow. After ten years you obtain shark status. You might ask yourself, "How crazy would you have to be to obtain shark status?". I recently read an article in the Rake about the health benefits of taking an ice dip. Only to get the maximum benefits, you must first sit in a sauna until you can not stand the heat anymore. When it is finally unbearable, you must immediately jump into an icy lake. Exit & repeat (At least three cycles). Now, I can not say I believe in positive health effects from jumping into water heated to a balmy 32 degrees F. But I can say I tried it (if only once), something which makes other look at me with a "What the hell did he smoke on New Years Eve?" look of bewilderment.

Give a Hoot. Don't Pollute. Plant a Tree Today.

In the city or in the woods, trees keep America looking good.

Hoot! Hoot!

What ever happened to waterbeds??? When I was younger, they were the height of bedroom classiness. Sleep Number??? No Way!!! What your water temperature was more like it. Even Michael Sever had one on Growing Pains. Now if that wasn't the height of cool back then, I do not know what is. But not anymore. I'm not even sure where to get a waterbed at. Goodwill possibly.

I think waterbeds died out about the same time as Growing Pains. Coincidence???

Stuck Away From It All... [Nov. 16th, 2004|09:58 pm]

I'm sitting in a hotel in Winona, Minnesota. I woke up this morning & drove to Dodge Center to facilitate some hazardous waste training. Then it was on to Rochester to finish my day in their new office. At 5:00ish I left for Winona. Tommorrow I have to do IH testing here for the whole day. Then I will drive back to Rochester to pick up a few pieces of equipment, & then I will drive to Owatonna. On Thursday morning I have to get up very early so I can drive to Waseca & do more IH testing at 5:30am. I would have stayed in Waseca, but both of the 2 (count them 2) hotels in town were booked up. Oh well.

In other news, Freaks & Geeks is one of my new favortie shows!!!
