Blogs Change Lives!

They do! Oh sure, your buddies all give you weird looks and talk vaguely about your "creepy Internet friends" (TM) but little do they know that Blogs Change Lives!

So there we were, IMFL07 +1 day in a comfortable coffee house when in walks IronTriTim and his lovely bride and twins-to-be (no, Steve in a Speedo, not those twins - the real, people kind....jeesh) and he gives us a rundown of his race:



Makes me want to go get a MA-ssage...

Afterward, Taconite Boy in true superhero fashion, seizes the opportunity to make Blog History and "Coffee Dials" on his I-phone none-other-than the Kahuna himself. Kahuna talks of the experience fondly on his blog, but just for historological purposes, here's as much as I got on video:






Anyone eavesdropping his conversation with the Kahuna would be hard pressed to have a dry eye. Man, you just never know when something you say or do will effect someone else's life, and to do it in such a positive way...well, that puts the Kahuna up into HERO status. Props to IronTriTim for the effort and achievement, and Props to the Kahuna for being the inspiration!

"Blogs Change Lives!"

No doubt! You and Di are up in the Hero category as well.

That's really cool.

Not as cool as your Sprite commercial, tho.

Quite true.

And sometimes blogs replace work lives!

Wow brings back fond memories. Seems so long ago.
Didn't realise you had the camera on for the kahuna call.

Bigun, I am contemplating toeing the line of the blogosphere on my way for a 2nd IM. If I do, I would like to phone you and I will video myself all "weepy" thanking you for keeping a fellow clyde motivated and entertained. I am thinking OSCAR caliber video, are you up for it? and ACTION!

Glad I'm not the only one who gets funny looks when I explain blogging.

Hey Bigun..I noticed on triscoop that you have St. Anthony's scheduled in for next year. Have you done it, if so, can you shoot me a line? I"m thinking of it for 2008.
Thanks
