You aint cause you not

Last weekend Kasey Beck and friends went up to Boise. Man I love roadtrips! Me and cannon drove Carrie and Bret's new car. It was so cool just having the windows down, listening to the music, chattin, and havin a time. There were some really sweet sunsets that we saw, cause from all the fires in Oregon, Idaho, Utah ish. So we arrived pretty late Friday night. We chatted about pranks, and I finally revealed to P-dub that I had a key to their apartment all last year, so that's why we were able to do the couch prank. Us guys slep in the trailer and then we went 4-wheelin the next day. We had an amazing breakfast, shot rifles, potato guns and a handgun. For someone who doesn't go shooting that often, I have a pretty good shot. Maybe I really should become Jack Bauer. We floated the Boise river. That was fun! It was really cold and I'm not sure what it was but I was having the hardest time staying on the tube. Fun times. We ate dinner then went with Adam Channer to pick up his motorcycle and then chilled at Bret's house. P-dub really wants me to write on my blog that out of the 8 of us that went camping a couple weekends ago, she eat me second, after Troy. Church was cool the next day, there was a HUGE tree outside the church, so we had a meeting in the shade-Boise branch. We had a great spaghetti dinner, and then werewolves, of course. It's so funny how we play werewolves with everyone's family. Good trip, and good people. They're a good family for my sister to marry into. Bret's dad asked me when I was going to get married...still haven't found my Abigail Adams...my Marjorie Pay Hinckley...my...Wendy Peffercorn, haha, ya gotta love the Sandlot.

Have you heard the lyrics to the rap song, "This is why I'm hot"? It's pretty stinkin hilarious.

...
This is why I'm hot
This is why I'm hot
This is why, this is why, this is why I'm hot.
I'm hot cause I'm fly.
You aint cause you not.
This is why, this is why, this is why I'm hot.
...
yeah

In "the man who knew too little" the bad guys are trying to bring back the cold war between Russia and the UK. Well I guess they succeeded because both countries have taken out their diplomats and are back to cold war relations. Several months ago a former Russian spy, who was anti-Putin (the Russian president) was poisoned with radioactive material. The UK has been trying to find out who did it, but Russia won't extradite (?) the main suspect. I'm worried about Russia right now. Putin has shut down newspapers and magazines that speak out against him, and has taken away other democratic freedoms. His term ends in 2008 and according to the Russian Constitution can't run again, but some say he's trying to change the Constitution. So yeah, this whole thing is bad for democracy in Russia. Russia has bothered me with some of their votes on the Security Council. They've delayed taking action against Iran and Sudan several times, and then of course they're really upset about U.S. plans to set up a missile defense system in Europe. So yeah things are exciting like always.

Me and Harry in Aachen, Germany.
