Bike Stuff

I bought a road bike in June and it could very well be one of the best investments I've ever made. Turns out my money is better spent on a bike than on say, chips and candy. Weird right?

So me and my bike..... we hang out. So far It's been to the Great Salt Lake, Logan, Idaho, up and down Wasatch Boulevard, all over the West Jordanish area and most recently up Emigration Canyon. I decided last minute (no really, it was the day before) to participate in the Utah AIDS Foundation Bike For Life 2010. I rode from Liberty Park, up 800 South aka HELL and then up Emigration Canyon, about 25 miles. It was a really fun ride. Turns out Drag Queens are real fun bike partners, plus they make it look good.

Exhibit A:
Feather Boas


And the view from the top wasn't half bad:


Love it.

I could probably try a little harder

I mean a blog a week wouldn't kill me. There's been a lot going on lately. Here is a quick run down.

I'm settling into 25 nicely. I mean, I guess I have come to terms with the fact that I'm half way to 50 and only 5 years away from 30. Ugh. It's tough getting older.

I went to Vegas with Katch and Jana. It was pretty much the best trip ever. We had a great time. Cris Angel freaked our minds with his Cirque show "Believe." I liked it because it was all about rabbits. The sad part is that the highlight of the show was when Cris Angel got cut in half with a chain saw. I'm not gonna sugar coat it. It was BAD. Apparently Perez Hilton, who was in the audience, had been Twittering the whole time about how awful the show was. Someone told Cris Angel who, at the end of the show, called out Perez and screamed "Perez Hilton is the biggest Douche Bag A-Hole in the WOOOOORRRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!". Real classy Cris Angel. Shoooooot.

We also saw Elton John at Ceasar's Palace. BEST SHOW OF MY LIFE. He is so talented and really funny. He played all the hits and I loved his stage set up. He had a bunch of old Vegas neon signs and some really great blow up props. Just after the show started Katchie noticed a familiar face sitting a few rows behind us: Greg Brady. He caught her attention because he was air drumming to "Bennie and the Jets". Turns out we had better seats than Greg Brady. He was sitting three rows behind us. No one even recognized him. I felt really bad for him. I felt like I should have made some screaming girl frenzy to bolster his spirits, but in the end I decided not to. He made out with Marcia, he had his hay day.

The running is going well. My half marathon is in two weeks and I feel ready. I am up to 10 miles and feel like I can push it the last three. Now I just need to make sure I don't finish dead last. If it comes down to it, I'm not above tripping someone.

Thats all the hot goss for now. Here are some excellent photos from VEGAS:


Us at the hotel. Taking pictures of yourself is hard work. I needed a margarita.


Katchie and I working on our poses for the wax museum. Just trying to blend in.


Jana and I's favorite picture.



Sir Elton



After Sir Elton's show.


I took my camera to Vegas and this is the only picture I took with it. Nice work, huh ?

Leslie Hall, Gem Sweater Madness

Saturday night some friends and I went to see Leslie and the Ly's. If you don't know who Leslie Hall is, you haven't lived! She is HILARIOUS. Shei s an internet celebrity. She collects gorgeous gem sweaters and preserves them in her mobile Gem Sweater Museum (I'm pretty sure it's a Winnebago.).

My good friend Jake made me a gem sweater to wear to the concert. Leslie LOVED IT!This isn't Leslie's first visit to the SLC. She came last march to promote her new album Cewebrity but I was really really sick and couldn't go. I wasn;t going to miss it this year.

What's new..........

It's been a hot minute since my last post. Sorry I left all two of you with that depressing post. Here is a breakdown of what's new:

I met a real deal Leprechaun on St. Patty's day. He was much scarier in person, trust me.

I registered for the Ogden Half Marathon and I'm up to 7 miles!! Wooooo. So if I can just double that I can make it! Oh, and cut my time down otherwise I'm going to be setting records for longest time EVER. The run is May 16th, so I still have plenty of time to train. Now Stuart just wants me to get fitted for a bullet proof vest. Oh snap!

I'm going to Vegas with Jana, Katchie and Tiff next month. In preparation I thought I should get a tan. Turns out 15 minutes is WAY too long for my pale white skin to be tanning. Serious sun burn. Actually it should probably be called a tan burn, no sun was involved.

I think I am going to start volunteering at an animal rescue near our house. I think it will be a great alternative to owning another pet. I get to spend time with animals without getting super attached. Ok, let's be honest. I will probably get attached. However, the place I'm interested in is a farm rescue. They even have llamas! It's not like I could bring home a llama, I mean where would we put it. Maybe I could fashion some sort of llama paradise in the backyard........

Benjamin Bunny: A Very Special Rabbit

We adopted Benny in January so that Booker would have a friend. He was such a sweet bunny. He loved to just sit and let you pet him all day. Veggies were his very favorite treat, so much that he snorted a little when he ate!

Last Sunday we noticed a lump on Benny's front leg. I took him to the vet Wednesday to have them check it out. The doctor took a biopsy and determined it was cancer. They said it could be removed through surgery. After some debate we decided to have go ahead with the surgery. Sadly, Benny passed away during the operation.

Benny was only with us for a short time, but we loved him very very much. I thought I would share some photos of him from the day he came to live with us. We will miss him, but we're grateful for the time we had with him.

Superwoman

I love this song and I love this video. If I'm having a bad day or feeling a little down, this song really inspires me. It also reminds me of a lot of my friends and family who do great things for others each and every day. I thought I would share it with you !
