Slice Of Life

Slice Of Life, is a Weblog (BLOG) that I write, in which I try to tell some sort of story about something, or someone in my life. Sometimes it's happy, sometimes not, sometimes informative, sometimes...... HA, gotcha, did ya think that I was going to say not? Don't know me very well, do ya? :=) I will try to update the BLOG from time to time, whenever I can.

My personality is outgoing, I use to be a wallflower, until I realized that it was all the outgoing people that were having the most fun. It was a tough conversion, but nobody I know today would even remotely consider me to be a wallflower. Basically, when I was young, my parents taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I haven't quite found the "anything" part to be always true, but it has inspired me to always try to do, and be, my best.

Tuuuuuubing..... On A Sunday Afternoon

How was your weekend? I had a great one. Not only did I sing a new Hootie And The Blowfish song at karaoke, my Adventure Cub went tubing on the Salt River on Sunday. Have you ever done this? If not, it's really cool. You drive up to Saguaro Lake, and there is this inner tube rental place, and they bus you up to a place in the river, the group tied all our tubes together, and you basically spend ~ 4 hours floating down the river in these giant inner tubes.

They pile you into these school buses, with all the tubes, and take you up the river, and there are 2 locations for pick up at ~ 2 hours float and 4 hours float. We did 4. Someone advised me to bring an old sheet to drape over the tube, and that was wise, because I think a black inner tube might get awfully hot in the Arizona sun after 4 hours (Ya Think?). I also brought a little $4.00 kiddy raft in toys r us, to float my cooler (smart huh?)

I couldn't help noticing that not only are "super soaker water gun" wars apparently the norm on the river and among the "tubers", but it is also apparently a tradition to participate in an activity I named...... "Marshmallow Bombardment". Several of the people in our group had bags of those large marshmallows, and we spent quite some fun time, lobbing them at other rafters we floated by. I thought it was some sort of thing only our group did, until about half way down the river, some other "innocent looking" group of rafters shot us with their own Marshmallow Bombardment when we floated by.

Plus, the only cooler restriction, is no glass bottles, so we had quite the fun time with Mr Budweiser, and those little pint plastic bottles of margaritas that we brought along with us. Good thing though that I brought along my SPF30 Sunscreen. Funny thing, when I was talking to another friend of mine, and describing the good time I had, she said "You know, that tubing stuff is just an excuse to do nothing but float down the river, drinking beer".

Yeah, So What? I wonder...... What was her point :-)
