On Facial Hair (Again)

Well, suffice to say, I have realized one of my dreams. I've wanted a handlebar mustache for a very long time. For Halloween, I did a redneck, and I think I pulled it off pretty dang well. In fact, some people pointed out that I possibly pulled it off a little too well. I don't know if I find that a problem, because it's awesome. That being said, I plan on keeping it for a couple more days. Granted, I know that I can't keep it forever, because I'll never get married. However, I think it's amazing, so I'm holding on to it for a couple more days. And, that being said, I make it an end. Here's an amazing picture of me (with a handlebar mustache):

On Rescue

So, I don't have a lot to say about the great (actually not that exciting) rescue of Echo Canyon. However, one thing I'd like to say. I can't say how many time's I've joked while on hikes that if someone hurt themselves, I would carry them out. Now I've done it! Granted, I didn't carry her all the way out, and we took turns, but I've participated, and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with that. So, that's about all I've got to say about that. For the moment, anyway. So, I'll do the usual and leave you with an amazing picture of me.

On Rainy Days

I decided today that I really enjoy rainy days. Granted, I already knew that, but it was confirmed to me today. I also decided that I like driving in the rain. Not really hard rain, but I think it's cool having the windshield wipers going and hearing the rain hitting my car and seeing the spray coming up around the other cars and knowing that my car is doing the same thing. I like hearing the sound of cars going by in the rain outside my open window and the sound of the rain hitting the roof of my house. Anyway, that being said, I don't have anything else to say  at the moment, just felt like sharing that. I'll leave you, as is my wont, with an amazing picture of me.

On Music

What is it about some songs that just makes them empowering? I have recently noticed that about a few songs in my collection. I listen to them, and I suddenly feel more powerful (which is saying something!). I feel more able to take on the world and like nothing can stand in my way (which is generally true, but the songs help me remember it in times when I forget, for whatever reason). This is one such song:

If you don't like that song, I submit that you are probably a communist. Either that, or you have very different tastes in music from what I have, which probably also means that you are a communist. I have to thank my friend Matt for introducing me to that song and to the band Switchfoot in general.

The empowering effect of this song, and other songs like it (which include things such as Livin' On a Prayer by Bon Jovi, Wanted Dead of Alive, also by Bon Jovi, Don't Stop Believin' by Journey and many others) work best when the songs are played at full volume while driving in a car with the windows down. Try it sometime. You won't be disappointed. That being said, I leave you with the usual: an amazing picture of me.

Me riding in Anthony's car out of the sunroof. Don't worry, I used my enormous strength to stabilize myself.
