i was lucky enough to have gotten hooked up with Bonfire gear last season.
it fit well, had good cuts, and surprisingly let me find that light pink fit me pretty well on the hill.
to say the least i loved it and would definitely sport it again - given the chance to shake my butt for more free gear.

so now as they announce that they're going to have boots this season... I'm thinking i may just have to give these a try and push my oh so comfy Celsius aside.

Bonfire Women's Echo Snowboard Jacket

Bonfire Blaze Snowboard BootBonfire Women's Flame Snowboard Boot

the Echo Jacket pictured above, i am def diggin' that. along with those boots...not bad not bad.
like i said def givin' these babies a run or two...I'll be making some calls...

Hump Day Goes Dancing with Louie

Hump Day Goes Dancing with Louie

Posted using ShareThis've just made my season even more EPIC than i already know it will be
thank you AGAIN for this pre-season gift haha first boots now this?'re just full of surprises ;)

skin cancer sucks...

So my Mom just had a chunk of her cheek, alongside her nose, removed because it was cancerous.
my whole family grew up tanning in the sun. So, of course, I'm no different. I can't tell you how many gallons of tanning oil my sin has soaked up in my lifetime - probably too much.

But seeing as a close family friend is now undergoing Chemo Therapy after having intense Melanoma...multiple family members went to the doc to have a looks see if they're good and clear.
My mom was the only one who had anything intense done, but she's done her two surgeries and is recooping just fine...i think I'll call her Bride of Frankenstein for a while though, i mean with 28 stitches...she earned it.

love you mom
wish i could be there for you like you're always there for me

wiffle ball....

is very deceiving.

my friend Jeff called me up and was like i'm gonna be in you neck of the woods playing in a wiffle ball game you should come and play

having nothing better to do i agreed
thinking oh this is either gonna be super lax or we're not even gonna play at all they're just gonna get drunk and we're gonna look really cool at a park surrounded by kids.

no no
we had legit teams

Pants vs. Shorts

i was on pants
and man oh man did we kick ass
had to go into extra innings ended up winning by 14
and although i felt victory in my heart - my back and knees felt everything it took to get that victory.

now the next day - im more sore than a fat lady's first day at Curves.
i fee like im 80 yrs old - this is gonna be bad when/if im actually 80 yrs old.

but on better news
i made a trip to Michael's
got new paint pens, canvas, and yarn to fill the beanie order - yay
so now i'll be feeling like and old lady doing old lady things but in the nice body of a youthful 22yr old...oh how i have the world fooled...

Lucas Magoon is in “serious condition, but stable” in the ICU of Renow Health Hospital in Reno after a fall skating. The folks at Boardistan did their reserch and found out he is NOT in an induced coma as was previously reported on Twitter. Lucas is not only a great kid and amazing snowboarder, but the richest man in Rutland! If we prayed, our prayers would go out to Lucas. Get well soon buddy!

Update: 9:00 PM Aug. 13, word from Lane Knaack is that prognosis for Lucas is good. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

Update from EStone: 9:21 PM. Hey Everyone I just got off the phone with Lucas’s nurse. He is not in a coma. They are keeping him heavily sedated to minimize the chance that he will move around and cause his brain to start bleeding again. The bleeding has stopped and the swelling is going down. They will try to take him off the ventilator in the morning and bring him out of his lucid state. Lets all pray for him tonight.

Update: 11:10 am, Aug. 14. Lucas is awake and off the ventilator. Friends say he is “awake and confused.” He is still in the ICU and under constant watch, but is doing much better.

Update: 3:27 pm, Aug 14 from E Stone: I just got a very positive update from one of Goon’s friends at the hospital. He is awake and is showing his classic Gooner personality. He has a long way to go but is on the path to recovery. For anyone who does not know it was a skateboarding accident. Pending his insurance situation we might be hitting you all up for a donation. Thanks for all the positive Vibes.

so i came to the cafe last night and i couldn't get a table with a plug so my battery died after about 20 min which sucked
and i didn't bring my journal for whatever reason
so i was left with a cookie bag in my purse from a week ago and a pink pen

i jotted down everything around me until it was full
because i was full of frustration at this guy - oh man

you'll see
because im going to re type it all for you here...

"atthe cafe and my laptop died - all the plugs are occupied & i didn't bring my journal so now im forced to act like a crazy novelist and write on a cookie bag because it was the only thing i had in my purse - oh well im in Seattle right? and that what people in Seattle do...right? so Zach is working tonight and looking exceptionally cute and hipster with his high cuffed pants, vintage beat loafers, and thrift store blue button up - i hate facial hair but something about your bear makes me want you and your walk - a bit annoying yet fierce and determined ?
i really fucking wish one of these fat bitches would get up i know they have internet at their apartment and wtf is wrong with the people at my place? does no one want half of their internet bill paid for? oh i think sweats guy may finally be leaving, yep, i see the windows shut down screen almost there - now if cute cafe guy doesnt notice it - im GOLDEN - oh wtf he was just restarting his comp what a fuckin tease. what could they possibly be doing like really do any of them have a blog to update? no. seriously it retarded how i want to be on the internet right now.
i always feel like Zach hates when i come into the cafe. he's closing his drawer - must be closing time soon. fuck i didnt get that letter sent out to Snowboarder."

on dancing with the stars...
kind of a "wtf" for all of us in the snowboarding community

but hey
maybe he'll prove that snowboarders can cha cha just like anyone else and that we're not as useless as some may think...

i know i'll be glued to the show like i was glued to Daisy of Love last season and i will be wasting my unlimited text on voting for Louie - that's for sure.

he should do alright-i mean i gave him a lap dance last season that won me new Celsius boots so he should've remembered some of my moves....if i see any of's on for sure.


here's a list of who he's up against.

slack time is over...

so i pretty much slacked it all summer while i was living the life up in Encinitas

I'm black now

but sadly my sunny summer days have been counted and punched
I've done my 2ND migration this summer - this time to the great NW
that's right I'm back in Seattle
living the dream up here...with the clouds, hills, and oddly dressed people.

oddly enough two very well dressed hotties just walked into the cafe I'm at...

so anyways
I'm pretty sure that I'm going to be spending my whole summer on couches
seeing as i was on a horrible futon in SD and now I'm on a super nice Ikea couch at my beds in the mix.

so along with not working and being like a part-time nanny while I'm up here
I'm taking on an apprenticeship under my cousin and learning the ways of Fine Street Art...otherwise known as "graffiti"

so this should consume a large amount of my time seeing as I'm a slight perfectionist and i don't like to "not be good" at something
so when i do get to the point where I'm doing my first throw up - i want it to be a bomber fer sher.

also I'm gonna try and start doing what i do for all of you folks who i think read this for SnowboarderMag....

Seattle is a prime spot for pre-season festivities so hopefully i can write the partial sentences that flow from my fingertips for someone who has an audience.

I'll keep you all posted on that
I'm hoping i can get the proposal letter out of my head, into an email, and the send button it pressed before the end of the week...we shall see.

oh and follow me on twitter
