Whiteout or Wipeout

Holy Helen...
It snowed.
It snowed a lot.
And it's still snowing.

I would be ok with snow if I didn't have to drive in it. That's the only thing I don't like about snow. I'm really afraid of dying in a car wreck in the snow. That's all. I hope it stops soon. Or at least clears up enough for Scotty to drive up here and pick me up to go down to Ogden. He's so great. :)

The snow has also reminded me of a song Whitney and I wrote in our Adult Roles class our senior year of high school. It was an amazing song. Something about how we didn't like the snow... and it had to go... and so did stupid boys. Now that I think about it, it may have been written about boys and we just incorporated how we didn't like the snow either. It was a hit none the less and it was our band's ("Eyebrow Meets Watch") number one hit. I'm sure you've heard of us. We are pretty awesome.

Today I was sitting here at my teller window thinking about a tv show I watched a few times in the summer. It's called Wipeout. Did you ever watch that? OH. MY. GOSH. It was SO incredibly hilarious. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard during a tv show in my entire life. It's like one of the Japanese games shows. People compete on these obstacle races for the fastest times and move up levels if they do well. I think some of the best parts included the punching wall which had mechanic hands randomly popping out and hitting contestants in the face/stomach/butt so they would fall down in the mud pool behind them. Or the 3 big red balls they had to run across, that I only saw successfuly done maybe twice. That was great. I'll never forget the funniest moment I ever did see. I was literally in tears because I was laughing so hard. There was an obstacle in the second round where the contestants had to run across these rolling pin type foam things that were surrounded by water. Well, this guy got all the way across them, but missed the platform by a few inches. He caught on with his arms and sat on the side of the platform kicking and kicking in the water trying to hoist himself up on to the platform. He was so exhausted from swimming and jumping and everything that he couldn't do it. I don't know why it was so funny. It probably doesn't even sound funny now. But I think we can all relate with him. We've been that person on the side of the pool that can't quite kick hard enough to get out. Haha. Oh man. What a funny show. I wonder if I could find episodes of it somewhere on the internet and watch them again. Ya'll should watch it. YouTube it or something. It was great.

Happy snowy December 13th!
