Eww, What is that?

By the look of the following pictures what would you say the substance in the glass is?

Well, I'm not going to tell you, at least not yet. I am having a contest. The contest has two parts.

1-What is the substance?
2-What are the 'ingredients' in the substance?

You can make your submissions in the comments of this post (come on, you know you want to do it. Even if you don't have a blog, just comment and tell me your name in the comment). I will post the answers and the winner in a week-ish.

The person who answers correctly (or maybe closest to correctly) will win one gallon of the mystery substance.

Good luck and happy guessing. (Oh yeah, and Jess is excluded from winning because she knows the recipe and don't think about trying to get it out of her, her mind is like a steel trap...).

Yet Another New Layout

The other layout was lame. Although I did like it because parts were orange. I made the quick swap, made a quick custom header, and changed the sidebar a bit. Enjoy.

Take That Being Sick

Today I decided to give being sick the proverbial finger. We had a couple storms roll through the later part of this past week and I had the opportunity to go touring, so I took it.

As it turns out, 4 hours of touring, 3200 vertical feet of climbing, and then 3200 vertical feet of skiing, and 4 hours of fresh mountain air are good for making your sickness go away.

I wish I had some pictures, but the camera didn't make it out of the pack. The new snow was a little heavy, but made for some great turns.

Take that being sick!

Three Weeks Sick

I've been battling a head cold for about 3 weeks now and it is getting very old. I don't cough, I am just extremely stuffy, have gallons of mucus, and incredible sinus pressure. I try to take it easy to rest up and that doesn't really seem to work. I decide I need to get out and exercise a little and that doesn't help. It's very annoying that nothing seems to work. I sleep and I feel good for a few hours after I wake up, but then it hits me again like a sledgehammer to the face.

I'm not really trying to complaining as much as I am protesting being sick. Anyone want to get some picket signs and walk around in a circle outside my nose chanting things like "hey ho mucus, sinus pressure, and headaches have got to go"? Let me know, we're meeting Saturday at 5;00 pm.

You Sure You Want that Bottle of Water?

I'm not one to repost a blog post that I've read. I'm going to make that exception today.

I saw a great post on bottled water that I read on The Goat blog. Rocky got it from Greenberg and the Ventura Country Star.

This is something that I completely agree with and have strong feelings about (though not militant feelings about). I couldn't tell you when the last time was we bought a bottle of water. At home we drink from the tap, at work we drink from the tap, when we go on the road we take Nalgene bottles and fill them up at gas stations. Considering that we have perfectly fine tap water there's no need to pay extra for it.
