Behind the frozen Minnehaha Falls: Close to the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, the Minnehaha creek drops 53 feet off limestone bluffs creating one of Minnesota’s tallest waterfalls.
In the winter, the water freezes and you can walk behind a totally amazing wall of cascading ice
A frozen waterfall. How awesome is that?
Well, it’s Valentines Day weekend so love is in the air . . .I suppose. The wife made me watch Shakespeare in Love last night (as I surfed the web) and people at work are talking about making romantic plans.
Still need ideas? Citypages has The Wet Spot: Sexy V-Day gifts from the gas station
Sexy gift #1: Duraflame Giant Log ($5.99)
The first key ingredient in any erotic V-Day stew is setting the right atmosphere. With a Duraflame Giant Log, that special lady in your life will be all like, “Whoa, am I sitting by a real wood fireplace at a secluded cabin in the woods?” And you’ll be all like, “No baby, that’s a Duraflame Giant Log which I set on fire in my bathtub. Now watch me do some pushups without my shirt on.”
Whoever says you can’t buy love has obviously never enjoyed the sweet, sensual scent of a Duraflame Giant Log, available at your local Holiday gas station.
I couldn’t agree more, sexy firelog it is. I think I have a few stored away in the garage for a sexy occasion.
WCCO shows it could be worse
Speaking of sexy. The Vita.mn Hotness images are posted and SOTC has a 7 questions interview with Christian-Philippe Quilici that gets out of hand. Apparently CP and I are going to meet for lunch and start a gang, Ya’ll.
MPR’s Bob Collins has a great story on the Wrenshall girls basketball team learning a life lesson
The Wrenshall (Minn.) High School Wrens girls basketball squad is 0-14 this year, but that’s not the worst of it. The worst of it was when the story of their 65-0 loss to Moose Lake/Willow River in December made the Associated Press wire and they got to be the butt of jokes across the country. Funny stuff, unless you’re a hard-working kid in Wrenshall — population 386 and one German exchange student playing basketball for the first time.
True confession time, back in the day we used to break into the Wrenshall school and drink (mountain dew?) in the hallways. Why? I have no idea, but I can tell you back in the day those Wrenshall kids really knew how to throw a hot tub party. It helped that there was no police force in Wrenshall. The entire town knew how to get into that school, but no one ever did any damage. Also, the school pool parties were super fun. I’ve known a lot of Wrenshall kids, all good. End Confession.
Yup, love is in the air. Romance. Break ups Hook ups. Some real Romeo and Juliette type shit is going down so let’s close it out with Jeremy Messersmith performing “A Girl, a Boy, and a Graveyard”
