It's the end of the world

So, my buddy at work is always talking about EOTW (End of the World). It's almost an obsession for him. He has food, blankets, lighters and all sorts of accessories stored and available when EOTW hits. Today, he gave me the coolest thing. Check this out. Now, I too, will be able to signal plans during EOTW. If anybody is looking for me, I'm on the roof practicing my plane signaling skills.

Ever heard of wakesurfing? I love when I get "paid" to do stuff like this! This morning for our team building activity, we spent a few hours on the lake. I got some good runs in on the wakeboard, and then got to try wakesurfing. I can't wait to get out again!

perfect cookies

As you may recall, one of my life long goals was to make perfect cookies. Well, as was previously stated, I have. Today this was reaffirmed. Today at work there was a chocolate chip cookie bake-off. This was not open to the general public, but rather to a select few employees with a reputation for making delicious cookies. Of course, I was invited to participate. And, I was the winner! I can now state that I make "award winning" cookies (and did so as I offered them to my co-workers). I was even accused of using a Mrs. Fields cookie recipe. This is not the case. The recipe is my own (slightly modified from other recipes). The real question is, should I post the recipe? Let me know what you think and why.

"a marathon is like life"

While attending the outdoor retailer show, I got to meet Bart Yasso. It is because of "Yasso 800s" that I ran my fastest marathon. I even got an autographed copy of his book. Here's what he wrote me:
A marathon is like life-- It's not how long it is But how good it is, is what matters.

aunt update

Here she is. Sadly, I won't get to see her until the end of September.

theme song

A friend at work sent me the following song: I have determined it could easily be my theme song as he refers to me as a "puma" (although technically I think I'd be a "cougar" because of my age.
