Well, no blogs in a while because I am what they call Too Busy and also Freaking Lazy.
I have a drawing assignment to do and an english paper to write, so this'll be brief.
I've gone mad and arsed about with the code on the side so that the links are all rearranged and whatnot. There are new ones up, old ones deleted, and everything is made to shine like new. Check it out, if you will.
I've been watching the Winter XGames. Yesterday past champion Blair Morgan and expected champion Tucker Hibbert were both upset by Mike Island in the Snocross event. Oy, it was a great race, with people flying all over the place (but thankfully not getting permanently injured), and all sorts of switchery and trickery. Madness. Anyways, Island was a great underdog win, especially beating Morgan, but I kind of wanted Hibbert to win. Ahh well.

MotoX (the bikes... like those crazy dirt bikers, only on snow) Best Trick was this afternoon. The so-called 'Godfather' of the sport, Mike Metzger, and his protegée, Nate Adams, had tying scores for second, and so came in second and third. Upsetting them was Caleb Wyatt, making use of his spectacular no-handed, no-footed backflip. Wyatt was actually the first rider to ever land a backflip, but others learned it and quickly overshadowed him, bringing a lot of angry talk about his getting overlooked when it came to awards. Anyways, he kicked bum today, despite missing the landing on his second jump and completely wiping out. The score on his first jump was still high enough to get him the gold.
Men's snow pipe is tonight, I'll probably watch it. Sara is an enormous fan of Shaun White. Eh, I'm not so much. I really don't like his hair. And, you know, he's younger than I am. Hrmph.
We're under a winter storm warning until Tuesday night. Ugh. Weather.com says, and I quote, "IF YOU MUST TRAVEL... KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT... FOOD... AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE YOU BECOME STRANDED. IF YOU LEAVE THE SAFETY OF YOUR HOME YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR LIFE AT RISK." Lovely. And let's bear in mind that the worst of it is probably going to be tonight or early tomorrow morning. And I've got to be out of the dorm by 8 am tomorrow morning. Infinite Joy Shall be Mine!
OK, really need to go do homework now. I shall endeavor to blog more often in the future, I promise.
