We've been traveling 'n stuff, so I haven't had much chance to blog. Here are a few highlights to keep you entertained.
My brother-in-law and his girlfriend have a dog (an english bull dog, if you must know) and they named it Boobies. Because everyone loves Boobies (I did enjoy playing with Boobies, she's a cute puppy).
We went to Tahoe to meet up with family who had been skiing/snowboarding, but since we didn't have the time or money ourselves we went to a place that rented tubes and we slid down a hill for an hour. The real fun started when it was time to leave the parkinglot and a minivan couldn't quite make it over the ice. Every time the van started to slide the driver would slam on the brakes in a panic. After getting advice from about 52 people and an aborted attempt to put on chains, a solicitous individual offered to drive the van out, which he did successfully. Now it's time for fun with stereotypes - the owner of the van was Persian, the hero was Asian. Now you know how they rate on their snow-driving skill.
Note: I am not racisit! Stereotypes exist for a reason (usually); they do not exist to judge people, nor to discriminate against them. Any appearance of racism is completely accidental. Have fun, people - go watch Carlos Mencia or something.
