60 Minutes Interviews

If you didn't watch the 60 Minutes Interviews with John McCain and Barack Obama last night, I encourage you to check them out online. The first part of the interviews, to me, were the most enlightening. When asked about the state of the economy, the recent bailouts and what needs to happen to turn things around, it's very clear which candidate is better informed.

It's very disturbing to me that McCain demonstrates such superficial knowledge; he's obviously not doing his homework...it's no wonder he graduated 5th from the bottom of his class.

I can't wait for the debates!

Tour de Fat

The Tour de Fat was a success! Minty McPatty and Doctor Awesome were in full effect as were about 800 other bikers taking over the city streets of Denver with boom boxes, funny hats and bikes of all shapes and sizes. The parade was a blast, as was the party in City Park complete with flowing New Belgium brews, a fantastic circus show and great music. Here are some pictures:

My New Bike




Guess who got a new bike this week? Me! It's an Electra Coaster 7 in pearl and mint. It's very cute and sassy, but also functional with 7 gears and a light aluminum frame. My bike was a very sweet and unexpected gift from Nicholas for our sixth month anniversary. Gosh, I can't believe it's already been six months. I guess that means I can now officially write about him on my blog. Hi honey!

We're going to ride our bikes in the Tour-de-Fat this weekend in Denver. It's a bike parade, sponsored by New Belgium that benefits local charities and raises awareness for reducing waste (and riding bikes instead of cars). I need to think of a costume that will go along with my new bike. I'm thinking Minty McPatty who wears all green and tosses peppermint patties out into the crowd. If you have a better idea, leave it in my comments section.
