hahaha ur mum is a wise woman! it is the way though. I have had guys tell me that no woman will pay attention to them for years, but as soon as he gets a GF all of a sudden every woman wants him! It's that old thing of ppl having to have someone else let them know what is cool and what's not, even when it comes to people. Sad that people can't just make up their own minds based on whether they feel the person is right for them, not right for other people. :) It's a ranting kind of day. I have an ear ache so that is also making me grumpy lol. Nice to hear from you too :)
Maybe Rachel Maddow - she already slams them a lot. I used to watch her show on and off but havent in a year or so. Don;t even know when she is on anymore. ALl teh candidtes on both sides are either uninspiring or in the "Do NOT want" category.
I looked it up and sounds like the first time in Bend for this. While it looks like fun, doesn't intrigue me beacuse of the large crowds that can be expected, Particpans will actualy get an assigned window they can do it. But tI would be great fun to watch because I picture pepole in all kinds of crazy outfits. They didn't do it this year because the snowpack is so low, but at Mt. Bahelor they do a "pond skim" at the end of the season where snowboarders go down a hill and try to clear a small water pond. Crazy, crazy costumes and most end up in the drink LOL
