hello from australia!

hello my dear new arrivals. i just wanted to say hi, through my dreadful jetlag, and tell you all how much i miss you! we are having a fantastic time. yesterday we left NZ for Australia and I am so happy to be back. The weather is beautiful and the pumpkin soup is even more beautiful. Today we're headed to Fraser Island for a 3 day camping trip (gah!) but on the way, we plan to stop at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to steal, I mean, feed, hug, and adore, some koalas. I hope you are all doing well!

thank you for coming

so my good friend dave and i decided to enter a contest being held by good magazine. the challenge: shoot a two-minute video about your hometown. the truly challenging part was condensing the best of yakima into 2 whirlwind minutes but hopefully yakima's specialnes will come through. please leave comments and give us the rating you feel we deserve.
movin' on up,


Well I guess we can all be greatful that Brown doesn't offer athletic scholarships. If they did we'd seriously need to revoke the one given to the girl who made this headline possible (particularly in light of Estelle's passing):
"Golden girls no more Americans beaten by China"
Alicia Sacramone had some not so wee problemos last night on the beam and on the floor against China. If you threw a party and invited everyone you knew it would be kind of like the Olympics. And I can guarantee the biggest gift would not be from Alicia Sacramone.

Olympic Fashion Update

A note to the female swimmers:

Do not leave your goggles on your forehead before you swim. It creates a shockingly scary and unattractive mark which can only be likened to Nicole Kidman's prothestic nose in The Hours.

Looks matter ladies. You've already got the 'roids workin' against you. At least keep the forehead clear...

I am totally into Park Tae Hwan! He just did your heart pound / peace out sign receiving his silver medal for the 200 free.
