Ginnia and Meg at the Chocolate Cafe

Ginnia is leaving soon :-( so I took her out for dessert Monday night at the Chocolate Cafe. She got the raspberry tort. I got the chocolate ravioli. We had a really good time. Wish it had been a first time instead of a last.

Snow in Fort Collins - October 26, 2011

I'm guessing we got 7 inches, but I haven't seen anything official yet. According to the city website, we got about .04 inches of moisture. *squints eyes trying to figure out how 7 inches of snow equals .04 inches of water*

Meg walks the Bolder Boulder 2011

Back in June, my mom, sis and myself walked the Bolder Boulder. It's a 10 mile race/party that meanders through the streets of Boulder, Colorado. They stagger the start times into sections. I think we were in G. So we didn't start till 9. They give you a little tag to put on your shoe and at every mile mark (or was it kilometer mark? Now I don't remember.) there was a pad you'd cross over and the system would track your time. You could check in by cell phone to see how you were doing. (That's how we checked in, right Kare?) I think we did the course in 103 minutes. Mind you, there was a lot to see along the way. We kinda did a fast walk & gawk.

The first bit of video is still photos taken on my camera. But then my battery died so I pulled out my Flip, which means that the rest is jittery footage as I was walking. If you get car-sick easily, you'll probably want to stop once you see movement.

Also, I added a few music tracks to fill in the dead zones sound-wise. But most of the music was being performed by bands along the route.

Oh, and I make some grammatical gaffs in there. Hey, it was all off the top of my head. Go easy on me.

Tour de Fat, Fort Collins, Co - 2011

This was the first year that the tour didn't begin and end at the Mothership. Instead, they started at Civic Center park, toured much of the same streets that they used to, then ended up back there for music, fun and frolicking.

I wasn't feeling so hot that day, so I just walked around the block, watched the bikes parade past, then went home and konked out. There were some great costumes, though, and the festivities took my mind off my aching head.
