If i was to write a blog, this is what it would say

If I was to write a Blog, This is what it would say.

By Goo

A little update on the life of Goo.

You know, I do have a blog... a myspace blog... and I do sometimes post things in it. But mostly they are Randomer updates. And no one reads it. And I'm not really into blog writing, although I think I would be if I didn't have Randomer. But Randomer is much cooler and more professional. And I don't usually just write about Random nothingness that has occured in my life. Oh wait, never mind, I do. But it is quite different from a blog. Usually, I feel like writing a blog and detailing every thing I have done in my day every day would be a little... how should I put it... exposing? to say the least. I don't want to tell you what I've been doing. If you really want to know, you can email me and ask me yourself. I was thinking this morning (or it may have been last night) that I could kinda do a blog on the news page and have it be a news/blog page. Because if I did blog in a blog, I would like it to be on Randomer... and as of now that's the only place it would fit. I could always make a new section, though. So if i was to write post a blog today, this is what it would more or less say.

A lot has been going on in the life of Goo, which coincidentally happens to be my life as I am Goo.

Now that we have that confession out of the way, I've been up to both a lot, and not much at all. The not much at all part is basically not much mountainboarding at all, not much hanging out with friends at all, not much of anything in any of those categories. I have really wanted to mountainboard more lately, but it has been way to stinking hot out. Plus, I work 8 hours a day in the heat, and I usually want to relax at night

And that's the a lot: work. I've been working A LOT.

Now mountainboarding. I was thinking about going for a sunrise mountainboarding session tomorrow morning, but I might be having a couple of friends staying over night, and my friends aren't very early risers... if we're talking 5 o'clock early type getting up time. But I really want to go riding, and I really want to do more filming of good riding and good riding locations because I want to enter a video in the Ground Industries Peep Show Video Contest. You'll probably hear more about that in the future.

But as far as physical exercise outside of work, there hasn't been much except for a little biking.

Speaking of biking, this past Wednessday was sweet. I worked an 8 hour day shoveling woodchips, that was pretty intense. I came home from work, ate supper, and decided to go for a bike ride. It is 4 and a half miles from my house to Levis Mound, and I've been wanting to try biking there, riding single track, and biking back. So I did just that. I biked a 4.5 mile warmup, and when I got to Levis, I biked for quite a while (most of it climbing the mounds) and then I rode 4.5 miles back... all this after an 8 hour day of work. It was pretty intense. The whole ride lasted an hour and forty minutes. It was sweet... a really good workout.

This past Monday I bought a car. That's right I BOUGHT A CAR! Finally! I've been waiting for a very long time to buy one... and I finally did.
The details:
Price: $2,400
Year: 1997
Make: Pontiac
Model: Grand Prix
Mileage: 182,000
Engine Size: 3.8L V6
Color: Dark Green
Oh yeah and its a 2 door coupe.
It was in very good condition, the only major mechanical defect being that the passenger side window won't roll down. But I've got working air... so HAH! The interior is excellent, not a scratsch. There were 2 small rust spots on the exterior, but nothing big. The only concern I had about buying it was that it had 180K on it. But the long and short of it is, I bought it, and it is sweet! I love it... yeah I am still super pumped and its almost a week later! Well, not quite a week. But it is great! I'll be sure to post a picture of it up sooner or later.

What else is there... not much.

Magnetic Camel Saddles

A Sahara News Broadcast

By Goo


Travel across the Sahara desert is currently being revolutionized by the newest camel saddle on the market: the magnetic camel saddle. Invented several years ago by a man named Adz who hails from the United Kingdom, the magnetic camel saddle or MCS has many unique properties that desert travelers find appealing.

But first, how it works.

Camels can drink and hold a great deal of water, and it is held in the humps on their backs. But, what Mr. Adz discovered was that the iron concentration in the water that they drink is staggeringly high. One day, he was chilling out in an oasis in the Sahara desert and decided “Hey, wouldn’t it be sweet if I stuck a refrigerator magnet to my camels hump?” So he did. And it looked sweet.

The MCS is basically a saddle with a bunch of magnets that sticks to the hump of the camel. Why is it useful? Instead of having to reach under your camel’s dirty belly to cinch up the saddle, all you have to do is drop it right on top of him. You can even put it on if your camel is lying down, due to the fact that it has no bottom cinch. And when you want to take it off, you just pull down and to the side and it slides right off the hump. Nothing too it! So be sure to stop in at the Sahara Saddle & Turban shop to get yours today!
