We are pretty much the coolest country to be on this planet, ever. Really, look at what is on our TV. What you got that is better that this? I have FOUR words for you 'TOEPICK' and FORWARD DEATH SPIRAL.
This week was PASSION week. There was skating and passion and passion and skating. I have decided that if I have to save ONE thing when the meteor hits, it will be a female Russian figure skater.
THIS Russian figure skater. Even her name sounds like music - Violetta Afanasieva. Opps, now she's done it. She done gone give me the vapors. She was raised in a Russian Circus family. I just doesn't get much better than that.
Oh and the two hosts are Kurt Browning and Ron McClean - two local boys and when I say LOCAL I mean down the street local for McClean and Kurt's home town an hour away.
Jamie Sale, who was on the show for the first two seasons was a local home town girl too before she won the gold medal at the Winter Olympics with her THEN husband David Pelletier who was her partner back then and who is the male skater in the pair I showcased. I KNOW. You can't make this shit up. We are all connected on the great skating rink of life.
I hope some of my followers from other countries will follow the link and seek this one out, if only to get a sense of something that is enjoyed here in the Tundra. We really are a terrific people.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
