Only in MN (Part 2)

I am leaving work in a few hours to go ice fishing for the first time. Holy crap! Ice Fishing?! Yes, that's right. Chances are anything I catch will be tossed back (too small) and not eaten, but I suppose it's more for the experience than anything else. I am really worried I am going to freeze my @$$ off, but then I guess that is what the accompanying liquor is for... :)

I would like to tell you all in advance that I love you and will miss you very much, should I fall through the ice and drown. Though I vaguely remember from reading a Jack London novel in high school that freezing to death is one of the more pleasant ways to go - Wish me luck!

Only in MN...

I think I have found my true calling! At the winter carnival in St Paul next month, there is going to be a Hotdish Challenge!! Participants are encouraged to send their favorite (only?) hotdish recipe into the contest, and the best 3 will be judged by local radio personalities - with one walking away with the 'Best Hotdish' title. Heady stuff...

In other news, I will be going ice fishing for the first time (EVER!) sometime in the next month. I want you all to know I love you and will miss you, should I fall through the ice to a cold death. Poor fish. I'm really just going for an excuse to drink!
