Best sport ever!

Why did no one think of this Snowboardcross before?

It's got jumping, bumping and crashing, and when it's calm, it's oddly mesmerizing.


Why the Olympics are bad

Already, today, I've had a conversation with myself that went something like this:

Carrie: Come on, you have to get up off of the couch and do something productive.

Carrie: But, the Olympics are on!

Carrie: You don't need to watch the WHOLE Olympics. Your apartment is a mess. You need to go to Target.

Carrie: Rarely in my life do I actually NEED to go to Target. Think of the money I will save.

Carrie: Nordic combined just came on. If you watch Nordic combined now, in a week you will be slumped in the middle of your living room in a couch potato stupor, enthralled with curling.

Carrie: OK, damn it, you're right. What do you think is on tonight?



Thursday night on my way home from the Crazy Fox, I almost got broadsided by a guy running a red light on Fifth Street downtown. Luckily, something felt wrong, and I checked the intersection before I went, because BAM, there goes little likely drunk red car through the intersection.

And I found myself thinking, wouldn't that be ironic and anticlimactic, if my lemon Hyundai was totaled after all the crap I've been through?

However, I've seen enough of the crash test results on my size car to know that, side air bags aside, I would not have fared well in that crash, so it's probably all for the best.

Unless next week I get in a stall-caused crash or something...
