Fun N’ Frolic


For when you are Bored As Hell! Careful – it’s stupidly addicting.

I got air!

Chris and I went skiing tonight – and the ankle is in good shape. I had a blast skiing in the ‘Terrain Park’ — that’s where all the moguls and the jumps are at. We had skied all the other runs early in the day and I was feeling exceptionally fluid tonight, so I figured I’d give the terrain park a run or two. I ended up doing it for almost the rest of the night. The jumps and half-pipe were tons of fun and I became addicted to the jumps — I got air, tons of it – – […]

Ski Patrol

I would class myself as an intermediate skier. I can do the blacks and double diamonds without falling – – but without total control, yet. I joke a lot about spending a fair amount of time on my arse when I’m skiing – but the truth be told, I do ok. Couple that with being a Registered Nurse and my passion for helping people (passion or burden, sometimes it’s both 😉 ) – I inquired about becoming part of the National Ski Patrol. Chris and I talked with one of the Senior Patrol members this evening, after we spent about […]


Done with skiing – – and I didn’t fall once! Not one time! Aren’t ya proud? The son is doing just excellent with the snowboarding, too. He’ll be ready for those Colorado Mountains in no time! The daughter didn’t go because she’s grounded – – for homework reasons. She was depressed because she loves to ski . . . and I’ll bet she won’t make the same mistake next time! It was kind of nice having her home while we skied. I know that sounds horrible, but on the ride home from – we were about 5 minutes from home […]

Speaking of penis size

This is priceless! It falls in the category of “Who checks these video feeds, anyways?”

You’ve probably never heard these terms before, but you certainly have been there! AQUADEXTROUS (ak wa deks’trus) adj. Possessing the ability to turn the bathtub tap on and off with your toes.

Doesn't everyone need one of these?

In the category of “You must really love coffee – or are really lazy” in relation to kitchen appliances – I bring you this. Yes, Chris went out and bought one of them. The thing comes with an instructional video, for crying out loud! It’s an espresso maker – – but wait! There’s more! It grinds your beans. It tamps them down. It brews the espresso. It disposes of the grounds in a drawer. You only need to empty the drawer every 12th time. More? It warms your cup. It brews a single or a double shot. It steams your […]

Night Ski

We’re headed off for the night to spend it skiing. Our local hills have night ski from 4 – 10pm. Wish me luck that I don’t break something! Last night, Chris took me to a store, saying that he had one more Christmas present for me – but he couldn’t buy it himself, because I needed to pick it out myself. I was getting rather nervous on the way, as my mind was conjuring up things that only girls conjure up. *shudder* Stop that! Anyways – we pulled up outside MC Sports, parked – – walked inside and he took […]
