Canadian Everest team in the heart of the Khumbu
11:34 a.m. EST Mar 12, 2004
The Cannucks have arrived in Namche Bazaar, the capital and largest town in the Khumbu. "We could have climbed within a few hours, up to a point where the Everest can be seen, but we decided not to because this would have felt like unwrapping a gift ahead of time. We therefore satisfied ourselves with a view of Ama Dablam." In Namche you can use the Internet, take a warm bath, even watch TV or a movie. Should your mouth ail, you there's also a dental clinic there - the world's highest in fact."
"On Christmas Day, David Stoess completed the X. He kissed the monument marking the southernmost point of the continental United States in Key West, and then headed home. He had just completed a journey he had dreamed of taking since he was a small child.
It was the second of two walks that made an X of footprints across the soils and concrete roads of the United States. Stoess, 63 and an avid runner, had walked more than 7,000 miles to make his mark on the country.
The young David Stoess had always wanted to walk from Los Angeles to New York City -- no particular reason, really, just because he wanted to."
"The necessity of escaping from life
BY LUCY JENSEN
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Sometimes, no matter how very busy you are in your stress-filled life; how, in fact, you are really too busy to take any time off at all, you start to recognize the signs that it's time to escape life as you know it and be just you, away from them.
Some of the signs to watch for: you stop noticing how pretty the sky is, (was it really sunny today?); you sit your child in front of the electronic babysitter instead of reading to her, because you're only half way through your to-do list and tomorrow is half-shot as well."
This is what happens when you get crazy messages from Mio with repeating letters and symbols that once in a great while turn into words. Due to my mysteriously depleting typing skills, some have went as far as theorizing that it was just me being incoherent, as usual.
Not yet. As you may notice, my computer is off. That isn't because I found a life, but it IS because Mio sat on the keyboard and made my computer go insane with stupid noises and changes in resolution settings.
Look at how proud this jerk is. Damn attention whore. How I love him.
This is Eric and I at Big Boy. I was desperately trying to take a picture of "Scott?" (sorry, Eric, I am the worst person with names, I bet I made that up, didn't I) who looked a lot like Kieran Culkin. There was one with a blurry back of his head a kilometer from us, but I decided against posting it. Instead, here's more of Eric:
Moo didn't want to have pictures taken of him because he had no makeup on. I would not cooperate.
Eric decided to contaminate my water, like an ass.
Then he tried it.
We abused the entry sheets for some childrens contests, but had to "fix" all of the profanity or else we'd get kicked out. Or so "Scott" said.
I watched Carrie at school, where the VCR devoured the library tape at the very last scene, and now I'm not sure what happens. Last time I knew the story, I was about 8. I read the book in secret at my grandma's house. No one ever knew, but I sure as hell had a lot of nightmares for the next few years. Despite me not knowing what exactly happens to Carrie in the end, I highly recommend the movie. I was actually shocked at how awesome it was.
I was almost late to my orgo 2 class, where the professor refused to let us know the easy way to make some sort of a street drug. He said he'd give us the formulas and mechanisms for coke, but he also mentioned that he's only giving that to us because he doesn't think any one of us would be able to make it. Anyone wanna buy some fine Ivanna-has-barely-a-C-in-orgo-2-quality cocaine?
Later Eric and I rented Edward Scissorhands and we wasted about three and a half hours on watching that + TV + each other. It was fucking great.
Apparently, everyone but me knew that I'm going whitewater rafting in April. John called me 7 times to plan, too. As much as it was news to me, I MIGHT GO AFTER ALL!
I didn't find one, but I didn't look that closely. This one, however, can be dyed any color, or so it says.

So why have I not been listening to TMBG lately? They are so cheering. The Johns rock.
Something true that I scribbled on the letterhead of the spa I went to and then stuffed in my purse (I stuffed the paper in my purse, not the spa. Sorry; I am currently incapable of speaking English.):
An interesting thing about spas is that, when inside, the time-measuring instrument of choice is not the watch; it's the treatment.
"Do you have the time?"
"Well, my herb-infused White Seaweed and Citrus wrap just ended, so it must be around three."
