Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

I'll take 99 Cents Worth Please and Keep Shaking


If Ian, from E Dog's http://ianthealy.blogspot.com/ won't send any of his snow my way, I may just have to buy it.

LOVELAND, Colo. - As if Colorado residents don't have enough snow to dig out from, one resident is offering more for a price on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for snow from "Blizzard I and Blizzard II" being offered by Mary Walker. She and husband, Jim, got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range.
"I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?" said Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.
How much snow 99 cents or whatever the winning bid gets depends. Walker's auction notice suggests avoiding shipping and handling charges by stopping by their home and picking it up — in a dump truck.


Thanks to Skittles, who posted this video just for me yesterday...so I'll share it with you now...this is how I was shaking it yesterday!!!! (hehehe)
Peace

And then Mary Walker put down her crack pipe and came to her senses.

I love to try to imitate that Shakira video. Except I think more jiggling than shaking is happenings.

Were you the one in the red or the one in the gold?

ian said...

Hey, you could hop on a plane and fly out here tomorrow, just in time to meet the next damn snowstorm we're supposed to get on Friday. Then you could get snowed in and go sledding for the whole weekend, drink lots of hot chocolate, and curl up in front of the fireplace.
