I can see Russia from here...

I just spent 2 weeks in Alaska on a Girl Scout trip, so forgive the lack of posts for the past many days.  I apologize greatly.  I saw amazing things, wildlife like moose (meese? Goose plural is geese, so moose plural is meese), bears, caribou, ptarmigans, whales, and puffins.  And mountains.  Crazy amazing mountains.  I could just sit and stare at those mountains for hours on end.  I was disappointed that we didn't get to go hiking, so I already promised myself I'm going back someday.

Awesome moments include:

  • Running down the hallway at the hotel in Anchorage to stare at gorgeous guys in the hot tub.
  • An intense game of Egyptian Rat-Screw at a restaurant that ends in two spilled Diet Cokes.
  • Singing "Edge of Glory" on a public tour bus, shortly followed by "Don't Stop Believing".
  • Watching Finding Nemo and quoting it for the rest of the trip.
  • The discovery that one of the other girls knew who Danny B was.
  • Singing "Love Story" on a fishing boat, and seeing whales right in the middle so it went something like..."He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said WHALES!!!"
  • Seeing a batmobile parked on the side of the highway
  • My t-shirt from Denali National Park:
  • Getting a free dinosaur rubber ducky at a flea market
  • Touring an underground abandoned WWII bunker
  • Offering a little girl a balloon animal I'd gotten - and getting rejected
  • Stealing about 30 total blankets from Delta Airlines
  • These t-shirts found in the airport in Las Vegas
