A big snow storm came in last night and stayed for a while. I was supposed to fly out of Idaho Falls today, but because it was so snowy, we decided to drive to the airport a little more cautiously.
My flight was supposed to leave at 1:14, and we got to the airport at about 12:45. Now, the Idaho Falls Regional Airport is very small, so there was hardly anyone there. I go to the check-in desk, and the lady behind the counter asks if I want to go on the flight to Denver. I say "Yes" and she then tells me that if I want to, I'll have to either ditch my bag or rebook for another flight, because I'm too late. I ask if there's any way at all to get my luggage onto the plane, and she says I'll either have to ditch my luggage or rebook for another flight. I even asked the TSA people there if they could sneak it on, but they said I'd have to talk to the check-in lady. But we already know what her reply is. So, I called Dad and he said that we'd just have to rebook the flight. Which he did, so now I am flying out tomorrow, Sunday, at basically the same time.
So that's my sad story. 63.
Also, I accidentally spilled orange soda all over my laptop early this morning. And so now the space bar is SUPER sticky and I basically have to punch it with my thumbs if I want it to work. Man, this blog post was hard to write. Double 63.

But, yeah, those caves are probably the coolest thing to do in eastern Idaho. You have to basically crouch and army crawl all over the place. And at the end, there is this room with an ice slide. It was like an amusement park, but free, and you get wet and covered in cave particles. It was super fun, and super cold.
I even have some cool battle scars from falling and slipping all over.

Ok, here are some categories and answers:
Three types of clothing I hate on people: Bootcut jeans, T-shirts that are too big so the shoulder seam is down at their bicep, and finally, anything with skulls.
Three weird things I have drunken/eaten: Horse (in Italy), Pool water (thourought my life at various pools), and Evan Fiala's sweat.
Three pets I have had: Goldie the goldfish, Jack the hamster, and various bugs and critters that would hang out with me in the basement.
Three last songs I have listened to by different artists: Forget About The Forecast by The Arrival; I Can Get Back Up Now by You, Me, And Everyone We Know; Without Gravity by PlayRadioPlay!.
That's it. That's how easy my "Three things" idea is. Feel free to use it if you like. It's so simple, you can do it anytime, anywhere, anyhow.

1. Jane Austin - she wrote Pride and Prejudice and some other books.
2. Beethoven - he composed some music back in his day.
3. Flo Rida - he's a rapper from Florida. That's where he gets his name. How original.
4. Kaine - another rapper. The goofy looking half of the Ying Yang Twins. He's the one on the left.
Also, December 16 was the day the the Battle of the Bulge started in 1944.
Man, I have the best birthday in the whole world.

I've spent the last 20 minutes on Youtube trying to find a video of the home screen of the Wii just to listen to the music.
And here is a good one:
I really like how it's ambient and all like that. It seems really rad. (Sometimes, late at night at home, I would play Alison's Sims 2 game on the Wii, and just sit there and listen to the music for a while. Hehe, I'm bad...)
I think that it'd be a really cool job to be a sound designer and write music for that sort of stuff and for commercials and what not. Kind of like the one guy from Juno who writes commercial music.
Either that job or an A&R rep. Or a natioanllaly syndicated radio personality. Or a flight attendant. Or a news anchor.

We had our FHE tonight at the dunes and we made a pretty monster fire. So, because the fire was so big and fiery, we decided to jump over it.
Now, don't get me wrong. I cleared that jump like a pro, but at the last second, I decided to turn my head and look back at the fire. That's when the flame hit my face.
It didn't burn or anything, but I could smell burnt hair. I figured "Oh, I probably just singed my bangs," but when I got 'home' it was a lot more than that. I had not actually burnt my bangs, but I had burnt some of my eyebrows, my eyelashes and part of my left side burn.
That's a lesson for you: always shave all bodily hair prior to fire jumping.

Haha, does anyone remember from Backyard Baseball when you would click on the kid in the wheel chair and he would say "Hi, my name's Kenny Kawaguchi, and my legs don't work!"

Yes, tonight we went to Walmart and myself and another guy dyed parts of our hair. I did some tufts on the left side of my head. I think it looks pretty cool, and I figured, "Hey, if it's all gonna fall out eventually, why not have some fun with it?" So I did. See?
As you can see, I tried the whole MySpace picture approach. Because that's what the kids are into these days. In the first picture, my hair is pulled over and in the second one it's just sitting there. So, yeah, hope you like it mom!

Some peeps were going to go to the pool during the evening and invited to me tag along.
So i did.
After we were done, we went outside, and it was crazy snowing! We ran over to the football field and played in the snow there. We were having a snowball fight, and, thanks to my natural scent and rugged good looks, some girls came over and started throwing snow at us. We we played with them for a little bit but they left because they had to go work on homework. So we played a little longer and then went inside. It was definitely cool. Here are some pictures I took right as I woke up in the morning.
This is from my window. This is what Rexburg, ID looks like from my window.

There you have it folks. Direct from the baby herself. Anyways, the contents of the package included: a red monster homie, some Hersey's candies, some pimple candy, some gum, a red wig, and a miniature bowling game. Here is a picture of me modeling the above mentioned goodies:

At DI, I also purchased the following: a pair of short shorts, some sweet pseudo moccasin sandals, a black/baby blue wool hat (complete with poof on top), and some movies. All in all I'd say twas a good run.
Expect pictures of the 'Backstreet Boys' sometime, so you can see the awesome costumes.

It takes about 1.25 hours to go through it, so it's well worth the $5.

These weren't any run-of-the-mill replicas though, they were BAPE and Billionaire Boys Club, both known for being bought by rappers and spoiled white kids. I fall into the category of a white kid who had a job over the summer and earned his own money.
Anyways, when trying to order these articles of clothing, the company had on their site that they only ship to addresses where the billing and mailing address match. Mine didn't , but I thought that they didn't enforce it. They did. My order was declined, and I was still billed for my purchase. I emailed USAA and asked them to remove the proposed transaction, and they said to give the Chinese company the USAA phone number to call and to verify that the transaction should be voided. When I checked my account status online, the order had been removed, and I got my money back! Now I just have to watch it closely to make sure the company doesn't try to do anything else sneaky...
I just went ahead and bought some hoodies from a well known American based company instead. I doubt there'll be any sneakage going on there.
Moral of the story, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. And sneaky companies. But you probably don't want to use an apple, you'll probably want to go with a good phone number or e-mail address.
**As requested, here are pictures of the hoodies and tees**
