I picked up my pool winnings yesterday, and in the last month I have added nearly 400 dollars to my vacation coffee can. This is just about enough money for a deposit on a return to Yellowstone for Wolf Watching in January.
The couple that guided the trip last year are offering a trip this January through their own company. We will stay in old cabins right in Yellowstone, and this trip will be a bit more active (more snowshoeing!) and take us farther into the back country to see the wildlife. Since I now have all the gear and clothes for freezing temperatures, I'll be good to go!
Next week, LA and I start a lace shawl knitting class. Needless to say, once we complete our (sort of) matching shawls, I will insist we both wear them whenever we are in the same room.
Did you remember to turn back your clocks? I forgot my bedside clock automatically re-sets, so I almost set it back twice, and mistakenly thought I had gotten up an hour earlier than I had.
I watched Blades of Glory last night. Yes, it is kind of (ok, really) dumb, but pretty funny too. Will Ferrell is so good at being silly, and Will Arnett and Amy Poehler are hilarious.
I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday, and go Chargers!
Addendum - with the Chargers piss poor showing against the Vikings, I have been knocked out of my Suicide Pool (No, it doesn't mean I'm going to commit suicide - it means each week you must pick a new team to win, and if you lose that game, you are knocked out). It costs 20 bucks to enter, and the winnings are about $5,000 - or in my case - the cash to pay for that dream safari to Botswana.
The Chargers are my team, and I don't have the language skills to describe the team's performance without swearing alot, but I'll give it a go. QB Philip Rivers was bumbling. The coaching was inept. The defense, especially the tackling and coverage, was lacksadaisical. Running Back LaDainian Tomlinson and tight end Antonio Gates were underutilized. On the positive side, punter Mike Scifres played a helluva game, and Antonio Cromartie set an NFL record with a 109 yard run for a TD. Oh well, maybe I'll win the lottery.
