This weekend turned out to be pure craziness. 4 different groups, some who have not been on site before, lots of activity requests, lots of activity cancellations, tons of snacks, and an annoying amount of snow, mud, slush, and ice. To add to the weekend festivities I found out that we have a computer virus which I am still working on, I need find and remove the virus from our sever as well as all of our individual computers and then run a few scans on our entire system. I am at the point where I think I need another vacation.
After the weekend craziness subsided and the groups left, a bunch of us went to the large metropolis of Brainerd for a night of pizza and bowling. It amazes me how terrible I am at bowling. In High school I bowled for 3 months with 3 practices a week while having tournaments on weekends, now I am lucky if I break 100. Either way it turned out to be a really good time and it made me realize that I just really like my friends. Which brings me to tonight, we were all sitting there hanging out when Charlie announced we were going to have a birthday party for Jordan and I on Monday night(strange because my b-day was a month ago). So tonight is my birthday, lisa made a cake and there will be bunches of snacks and lots of people which will add up to an all around good time.

Sometimes I really like my job

This morning started off with me giving a camp tour to a group that is coming out in early May, we walked all around camp and finally ended the tour up at the ranch. We stopped to look at the horses and found ourselves discussing logistics while petting a very large horse and a very small ugly donkey we named Gus. After the tour I came back to work in the office. I went to the back office to ask a quick question, instead of an answer I was handed an Indian squaw dress a sheet of paper with music lyrics. All of the sudden I get to be in a commercial. It ended up being a remake of an old coke commercial where we sang something about wanting to build the whole world a home and furnish it with love. It had to be the cheesiest song ever. My favorite part was that another one of the "actors" in the commercial happened to be Joel Hanson from PFR, he was wearing a tight see-through white shirt and a pair of American flag zubaz and all this happened before lunch. Well that's all I have for now, cheers, I hope you have a fantabulastic Tuesday.

Silence of the Lambs

Ever since the "Silence of the Lambs", "Hannibal" and "Red Dragon" movies first came out I have been terrified of them and I have refused to watch. Everyone has always talked about how scary they were and how they didn't think I couldn't handle them. Well this past weekend I decided to conquer my fears, I watched all three. I thought the movies were pretty good but not nearly as scary as people said they were. I thought they were much more interesting than scary (Jess I think you could definitely handle them).
On another note to keep life interesting I typically come up with different goals. My newest thing is to get good at biking, not simple road biking but sweet trail, single-track, mountain biking. I had a few easy warm-up days around the lakes and then got run through the mill this weekend. We rode on some sweet low maintained trails behind the Brainerd airport. I am a pretty logical person so it was hard for me to keep convincing myself that it was a good idea to ride as fast as I could into either a downed tree, or down a steep trail, or even across a thin little ledge. The good news is that a few cuts, scrapes and a deer-tick later I am still alive. We will see how this all pans out. Have a fantastic Monday!!!

Numero Uno

So Jess you got me thinking about doing a blog and I get too bored waiting for you and Dave to post new ones that I decided to start my own. I had a hard time coming up with a name cause really how do you name one if these things. I decided to go to one of those websites where you can find your Gangsta name and I was gleefully surprised to find that there were lots of different names to choose from . The names I got to pick from were Gangsta "Jimbo the Crack Smoka", Taxi Driver "Chow-Chow Johnson", Pirate "Jelly Wrist Eve", and Mafia "Fancy Pants Lucia" which is my favorite of all the choices so I dubbed it the winner. I dont know how good I will be at this but I thought I would give it a try for a while, so blessings upon you and have a splendid Monday.
