Last weekend, between the blizzard, Colorado Gold Rush and Tami's visit is a big, pleasant blur right now. Many noteworthy things happened. Here is one I think is cool. It seems that whenever Tami and I go out to have fun, something happens. When we went to the Oregon coast, within the first hour I buried the front axle of my car in the sand on the beach!

Sunday, we took a scenic drive up the Big Thompson canyon to visit Rocky Mountain National Park and shop in the town of Estes Park. Sure enough, I get pulled over by the Colorado Highway Patrol on the drive up the canyon for slightly exceeding the speed limit. But really, since when is 53 in a 45 illegal?

Well, Tami and I were gabbing away and drinking coffee and I was in such a good mood I wasn't going to let the officer ruin our day. I was going to use plan A, be super nice...and plea "guilty as charged". Tami also volunteered that she was distracting me with idle conversation. The kind officer was really very polite, asked for license, proof of insurance and registration. I couldn't find my registration but he was OK to use the VIN number on the insurance card to verify that I was not a car thief. Of course, there is was that minor problem of the wrong name, picture and gender marker on the license. I told him I was a transsexual woman when I handed him the license and he didn't even blink an eye. Then he uttered those magic words, "sit tight while I take your documents back to the patrol car to write you a..."
WARNING! (for speeding and not having an update address on my license)

I finally, just looked at the warning today. I was endlessly pleased with the gender marker ;)
It seems when Tami is around, I am always getting into and out of trouble!

Do you Tweet?

Do you twitter? I got an eMail from work espousing the joys of twittering. For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would interupt the flow of life several times a day to enter a quipy little message about their moods or status update on their digestive processes. As I do for all things technical, I checked with my teenage kids. They don't twitter, so that's good enough for me!

Of course, I have been MySpacing lately at cicishousered. Actually, I called it "MyFace" describing my posting to the kids. I couln't understand their uncontrolable laughter. They are big Facebooker's and assured me the Myspace is sooooo square. Well, I'm there for all of the cool music contacts anyway! I tried logging in and setting up camp on Facebook, but the registation question reminded me of a recent colonoscopy I had when I turned 50, they wanted way too much information!

For now I'm content posting here on this "MyBlog" account :)
Wow, I forgot I even set up an account here! I'll post something real when the blogg'n mood strikes!
