A Sad Story

This story starts with last night.

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.

Ice Caves

So, tonight, as in from Friday night to early Saturday morning, we went to the ice caves. These are different from the normal caves in two ways: it is way more challenging to go through, and everything is covered in ice. It was pretty amazing. And I went with a girl. Yes mom, as in a date.

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.

"Three things"

Ok, so, I've been living life for the past couple of days constantly trying to come up with the master blog post idea in my head. After much deliberation with myself, I have come up with and idea. I'd like to call it "Three things." The basic idea is to come up with categories to ask yourself, and then to list three different things in that category. For example, say I wanted to do...Three things that taste really good to me. 1) Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries, 2) Take 5's, and 3) Rolls. See how easy it is? Maybe this could be the next big writing technique taught at schools all over America? We'll see.
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.
