free form friday. (yeah, i know it's monday)
while not completely random, we took another walk on friday and encountered this wonderful mushroom pictured above. cool, huh?
wingman was pretty enthralled with ALL the mushrooms we found, but at each one sniffed
"oh, but it's not a shaggy mane"
which only confirms my suspicions he does indeed have some secret life.
Coolness of the week!
(be advised, this is a news video link with sound. totally safe for work or kids, though)
if you can't access it, it's a story on how the pope just gave india their first female saint.
Random political bits for the week.
colin powell endorses obama, blasts own party.
palin HAS to go on SNL and sit for the roasting to try and gain points. sad and shameful.
poor joe the @#&$^%! plumber.
Food love of the week; Coke.
while coke is in NO WAY random, quite the opposite, it's my food love of the week and i'll tell you why.
i don't drink soda so i always forget this, BUT, when you've got that headache coming on and there's no coffee around and no pain reliever to be found, drink a coke. coke is always around. in vending machines, corner stores, gas stations, etc. even at the top of one of your area's highest peaks.
if coca cola needs to be bailed out by government then we really know the world has gone to shit.
i had a migraine on saturday, but recovered enough to go hiking on sunday. well, until one adds in a 90 minute car ride, not enough breakfast, and 5000+ feet up in oxygen thin country. by the time we got ready to go on the hike my head was pounding pretty good. no coffee, no advil, no amenities at the visitor's center.
but, they had a vending machine and that vending machine had coke.
the real miracle is that i actually had money in my wallet (which i NEVER do) AND the machine actually took my dollar without spitting it back out at me.
there are miracles afoot everywhere, people.
