1. Stay strong Wisconsin!
2. I confess two guilty pleasures:
The Nanny (as in, the Nanny named Fran)
Jackass: The Movie
Weird combination, I know. But they're guilty pleasures--not meant to make sense!
3. Yesterday skiing I took my son down a double black diamond run. It has all these warnings at the top, plus a big skull and cross bones. You can't ski this run alone, so I had never been down it since I only ski alone or with son. But I figured he was ready. He did fine. Only one little spill. But when we got almost all the way down, and a guy with his little girl skied past us. She was a little kid, maybe 2nd or 3rd grade. This was a bit humbling for my son. As he pointed out, she was going faster than he was! Then again, on little skis you can just snow-plow between the moguls (which she was). We emerged proud of ourselves, nonetheless.
4. On the lift yesterday, I pointed out one guy to my son who was really, really good. Just, wow, amazingly impressive. And my son said, "Is he as good as you, Mom?" So sweet!
