"toodles" triple word score!

My name anagrams out to "Got crib tootles?"

Also "October Glottis".

Coincidence? You decide.

Charley's laughing...

I went this last weekend with my student ward to lake roosevelt for boating and other fun activities. We snuck away from the group saturday to go run Salome Creek, AKA "The Jug", a short little fun canyon. Things I learned:
1. Wakeboarding is tough.
2. Nobody can teach you how to do it.
3. Every time you fall, a quart of water WILL shoot up your nose.
4. Every watersport is harder than it looks.

Now for Salome:
1. If it's possible to bring too much water, we did it.
2. It's probably more fun... 6 weeks ago.
3. I brought wayyyy too much gear with me.
4. This was all very heavy during the long and tiring swims.
5. I'm not as strong of a swimmer as I remembered.
6. This sport is every bit as fun now as it was 2 1/2 years ago.

Seriously, I brought at least 30 lbs of non-essential gear (notice helmet in pictures), including a sickeningly long amount of rope which is much more than I care to admit, "just in case." Well, now I know for next time. Traveling ultralight, with just water, a camera, and 40 ft of webbing. Salome's a fun little romp in the woods, but can turn into an unpleasant swimmer and exit hike with too much baggage.

And for all you facebooking VIPs, check out the video.

My bank is frequently a source of frustration to me. It's not just Chase bank, it's every bank I've ever used. I guess I just hate the business. When I get something from my bank in the mail, I assume it's important, like a statement or alert.

It's usually not.

Most of the time it's solicitations from the bank for their little promotions and programs. Sometimes an incentive is included, like this time a $15 gift card to circuit city if you buy the $7.99/month service. I've decided that the only way to strike back at these annoying letters is to accept the incentive, and cancel the service within the free 30 days.

That'll teach them. I think I'll buy another Wiimote.

Identity theft ruins lives, Jim!

After ignoring much gentle nudging from my loyal readers, and with some sagelike counsel from charley (thanks pirate,) I've decided I'll post more. Here's some old news, pictures from my Utah trip!

I won't flood you with details, but basically it was rad. Kickin' rad even. Much driving, much laughing, little sleeping.

Sorry this post isn't about me, but it's cool anyway. Enjoy.
