Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

Rach rules...

What's wrong with being sexy? ~ Nigel Tufnel

I meant to get this posted earlier in the week but have been distracted.

You ever have someone that just knows you? Well, I do and she is awesome. The other day, she was relating the story of her grandfather and how he left his family with a creed:

What one lives for may be uncertain, but how he lives is not.... Man should live nobly though he does not see any practical reason for it, simply because in the mysterious, inexplicable mixture of beauty and ugliness -- virtue and baseness -- in which he finds himself, he must want to be on the side of the beautiful and the virtuous.

~Oren K. Palmer
Wonderful words to live by.

So given that I am one of those people who never lets a serious moment pass without an attempt at a joke (usually pilfered from someone else), I said, "Rach, you know what my creed is, right?"

To which she replied in a slurred English accent, "Have a good... time... ALL the time."

Gotta love it when your special lady taps into Viv Savage's philosophy of life -- and precisely the obscure quote from a 24-year-old movie that was going through my head.
