Common Occurences

When it gets warm here.... Things start to go awry.

Here is a picture of a Delta stuck in the snow. This is the common mode of transportation to and from the runway. There have been numerous calls on the radio of stuck Deltas. Quite amusing on a slow day in the office. Probably not so amusing for the drivers.

The second picture is an attack of the Skua. The infamous scavenger bird that lingers around McMurdo searching for innocent people carrying plates of food. They have also been known to randomly attack people without out food. Geoff frequently gets chased by them while running.

Ob Hill Up Hill

Geoff ran the annual Ob Hill Up Hill this past Sunday. One of his favorite races of the year. (I think all of them are his favorite)
Here is a picture of town from the top of Ob Hill and a pic of all the participants.

Year in Review

Geoff and I have had a wonderful year in 2008. Here is a list of some of the things I have learned in the past 365 days.... about me... about the world.

1. I tend to cut my hair when I am stressed.
2. That when I cut my hair short... I just want it long again.
3. Showing you love someone is much more effective than simply saying it.
4. I shouldn't stress about somethings/people too much. (I am working on this daily... hourly... )
5. That these little legs can be pretty powerful.
6. Kansas may not have scenery that appeals to me, but the people are amazing.
7. Brussels sprouts don't taste that horrible.
8. My girlfriends kick butt... (I already knew this, but I needed a number 8)
9. That Mountain Lions sure are hard to spot.
10. Grizzlies... not so much!

i could be a Sesame Street character... i'd be the Cookie Monster


i were President... i would make styrofoam illegal


i could only eat one thing for the rest of my life... i'd chose sushi (or phad thai)


vegetables are in cans... i don't eat them


we had a house... i'd have a garden and a dog


dark chocolate was a health food... i'd be in awesome shape.


i don't say it enough... and you are reading this....
i am probably grateful that you are in my life.


i could relive any day of my life... it would be my wedding day.
a day of being surrounded by family and friends.

just for you Jim

another year

another wrinkle
another pound or so on the scale
another season on the Ice
another holiday season away from friends and family
another time for reflecting on my life

it is almost that time. when i am a year older... and wiser? (not so sure about that)

Thanks to all my friends and family for all of their love and support.
much love and hugs to you all.
