I know I said I would be back Tuesday, but I just wanted to post three important items that occurred over the weekend.
First, I became officially recognized as the Best (Freaking) Blog in Utah, according to the Social Media Club of SLC.
OK, actually, I was one of several blogs to receive this award, but I have a difficult time sharing glory, and I have an even more difficult time understanding how multiple blogs can share an exclusive superlative. So I’m going to persist in thinking of myself as the best, as opposed to among the best.
Also, my head is going to swell up and explode, due to self-congratulatory self-importance. Better stand back.
Big thanks to my friend Jeff Hadfield, who — as he did with the Bloggie — accepted the award on my behalf. I would have been there myself, but I was busy driving to Fruita for a weekend of mountain biking with the Core Team. I believe I was somewhere between Price and Green River when Jeff accepted the award.
Second, Movember is going just swimmingly for me. Check out my progress on my “Tallahassee” Mo, as of my first shave of the month last night:
Yeah, I think this one’s a keeper.
Here’s another shot I took of myself, trying to simultaneously get a good look at the tricky-to-shave bottom part of the mo, smile, and see whether I was pointing the camera correctly:
All ready to be institutionalized.
If you would like to support my efforts in growing an outrageously awesome mo while raising money and awareness for the fight against cancer, do me a favor and donate here.
Or, if you’re thinking of joining the Movember movement yourself, why don’t you join Team Fatty? As you can see, I’ve grown this much mo in just one week. Surely you still have have plenty of time in Movember to grow your own.
Third, last weekend was the annual Core Team’s Fall Moab event. Which we held in Fruita, Colorado this year. I took hours and hours of helmetcam video, which will take hours and hours and hours to convert and edit down to something you’ll want to watch.
As a teaser, though, here’s an unretouched photo from the trip.
The video should be interesting, no?
