I just spent the weekend trying to swim in an icy body of water. You may have heard my screams if you were in any of the following states at the time: Utah, Colorado, Arizona, California, Nevada, Idaho, New Mexico, Being. Story to come--if ever I recover.
In the meantime, please enjoy the first five minutes of the story I told last week on The Porch about couchsurfing with Serhei. I will be sending this video in as part of a humor competition I'm currently competing in. Your hits on the video will make me look super popular to the judges and will thus be greatly appreciated (I will reward you in hugs and Facebook pokes (do those still exist?)).
