Cold Mountain Juice and Google

Most of you probably don't know, but for the majority of my young life my dad owned his own fresh juice company called Cold Mountain Juice-located on 45th (currently a UPS store) in Seattle. In this current age of technology, I decided to google “Cold Mountain Juice” and see if I got anything interesting. Oh boy did google deliver. Third from the top I found this site:
I clicked in and nearly pissed my pants! I then promptly emailed my dad to verify this new information I happened upon. It went something like this:

Hey I found this on the interweb…is it true??

"Some years ago when I was still living in Seattle, I knew the guy who ran the Cold Mountain Juice Factory (who made great carrot juice and distributed it in the area). He was fairly orange when I knew him and, he said, he'd been a bright orange a year before, all because of the quantity of carrot juice he was drinking (about a quart a day when I knew him and up to 1/2 gallon a day before). He bicycled everywhere and was in great health, but you could see that he was orange from quite a ways away. His hair, which was normally brown, had a very slight green tint to it as well as a result of the extra pigmentation."

Dad-did you have green hair….did you turn into a carrot??

My dad then came out to my desk-he thought I’d made it up. I showed him the website and I told him he should email the guy and he said he would. As he was leaving I asked if he had turned orange. He said that he was mildly orange, but that it was mostly because of his natural skin tone. He then said “But I did NOT have green hair. That is a lie!”

Ldslinkup email 12/26/08

Haven't blogged about ldslinkup for a while so I thought I would share with you this email I received over the holiday weekend. (Background information, I have three pictures up on my profile, the first is one that was taken at cowgirls on my birthday weekend, the second is one from when we filmed little Georgi goes scouting, and the last is one of my bottom from the ugly sweater party.)

Email from “Moving to UT....Ready?” on the 26th of December.

"Nice butt =).
Merry Christmas."

I just realized I didn’t blog about my birthday celebration weekend. Sorry everyone! Thursday the 4th, we (Leah, Whitney, Sean, Amy, Bridgette, Stephanie, Lindsay, Mikey, and moi) went to the Fifth Ave and saw a production of one of my favorite musicals; Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Not as good as the movie, sadly, but it did have some very memorable moments, including some that I will never be able to get out of my head.

Friday we (Leah, Whitney, Bridgette, and me) went out dancing at cowgirls and took lots of fabulous skanky photos for Kevan.

Quick story, I was IMing with Kevan (my Scottish friend) and he asked me what my birthday plans were, I told him about the musical, my birthday party and about some skanky bar dancing. He asked if I would take some skanky dancing pictures for him-in jest, but you can’t really jest about skanky dancing photos with me. So these fabulous pictures are for him.

This just in, Whitney’s soul escapes body!

This is FABULOUS, thank you Leah!

Drunk Brother #1…help me!

I would say group photo, but they weren’t in our group. Caption: Our group of girls in a picture with Drunk Brother 1 and Drunk Brother 2. Who were way too handsy for our liking.

Side note, I was asked for my phone number by a black man with grills that night. Whitney got me out of it by telling the man I was leaving for London in a few days. If only that were true…sad.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

Location: The Sheridan Hotel and Erin Chapman’s Wallingford house.
Fabulous highlights: Whitney’s Christmas tree sweater with lights (I loved “plugging” her in), I was a White Elephant gift (chosen by Jose, stolen by Mark), and Snow!!! Plus some of the gayest sweaters I have ever seen a man wear!

Layne, Leah, me, Whitney, and Laird at dinner.

Wow Whitney, show us how you truly feel about the situation! Disgust much??

Andrew likes to take stalker photos of us when we’re dancing….apparently!

Wait, he’s been sighted!

Group photo protection huddle, thanks Laird. On a positive note, I like the view from behind!!!

Bullet Tooth Tony...Arrested???

Former Footballer turned Actor and all-time beefcake Vinnie Jones was in the news today. He was arrested and charged with assault after, get this, a barroom brawl.

I saw that he had been arrested as a headline on MSN this morning and it gave me a little chuckle. Like it’s a surprise that he would get into a fight…it’s Vinnie Jones, proud owner of this memorial football moment. It’s gotta make you laugh!

Fun with friends Downtown!

A couple weeks ago we went out dancing (like we’ve been doing every weekend for the past 6 weeks), and took some pictures of our journey.
Highlight of the evening-when a bicycled police officer told Whitney and I to “work it!”.

Frontier Funsies!

Frontier Bar

Outside Frontier

The steps that lead to nowhere. Pay attention to the two guys on the left side of the picture.

Oh yes, that's right! Having your picture taken with random guys-priceless. :D


I finally uploaded pictures from the past 2 week. So, here's the past two weeks in pictures! Saw James Bond, James Bond. Thanks for the Giving. Loiterers! Babies!! There are two in this picture. ;D Thing one....Thing two. British Bangers?? At the grocery store??? I was all kinds of surprised! “Whitney, what are you doing??” “I’m stretching out my scalp!” Whitney! Put that toe away! Decorating at work is fun….since when is that working?? ;D Weird scratch that appeared on my cheek.


I am so amazed with men sometimes-really, so amazed. Yesterday I got a email from a guy on LdsLinkup (yeah I know, one of these days I will have a post that doesn’t involve this site. ;D) that simply said “hi”.

I clicked into his profile and took a quick gander. It said he was from the UK, which I thought was cool, and then I saw that it also said IN A RELATIONSHIP!!! Seriously?? If you’re going to go on a website and sneak around on a girl, don’t say you’re in a relationship!!!

I responded back, because I had to.

I sent an email that said: “Uh, aren’t you in a relationship?”

He didn’t send anything back, not that I expected him to. He did view my profile today though…creep!

Note to readers and potential comment makers: No matter what men say, if a guy sends an email to a woman that he doesn’t know-he’s interested in her. Especially if it’s on a semi dating social network site. This man was not simply being polite and looking for a new friend…he was interested.
