a guy walked into the board room and said
"hi sweetheart if you could fix me up a coffee real quick im meeting with the regional reports manager in like five minutes, thanks darling"
and i just stared at him and coldly said
"i am the regional reports manager"
we are now twenty minutes into this board meeting and i dont think i’ve ever seen a man look so embarrassed and afraid in my whole life
A musical reprise that could’ve made Disney Frozen’s climax even more tear jerking than it already was. Written by phananigans.tumblr.com and recorded by Scarlet-Glow.tumblr.com here’s: Do You Want To Build A Snowman (reprise)
"Yes I wanna build a snowman…
I’m sorry that it took so long…
I didn’t know I needed you…I really do…
and now you’re gone…
please…just ask me once more…
just one more time…I promise I’ll open the door
…yes I wanna build a snowman…”
The Olympic Sport that Needs to Return: SKI BALLET
Apparently, the sport was around for about 30 years. It peaked as a demonstration sport at the 1988 and 1992 Winter Olympics, which basically means that it had a two-time trial run before the Olympic committee decided it didn’t suit the Games. After that, public interest in ski ballet waned, and the International Ski Federation dropped it as an official sport. 2000 was the last time anyone saw an arabesque on skis. (In competition, that is. I’m sure you whip them out when you hit the slopes.)
Ski ballet combined puffy neonsnowsuits and awkward ski poles with the grace of ballet. What’s not to love? A nice montage awaits you, above. X
What in the world was that? That, my friend, was ski ballet, a delicate and confusing admixture of figure skating, freestyle skiing, and jazz hands. Freestyle skiing became popular in the 1970s as a trick-centric alternative to traditional Alpine skiing. Whereas Alpine ski racers are scored on their times, freestyle skiers get points for style and flair. For years, ski ballet—also known as “acroski”—was a full-fledged competitive freestyle skiing discipline, alongside aerials and moguls. In competitions, ballet skiers had 90 seconds to perform their acrobatic routines set to music. They were judged on the quality of their flips, jumps, rolls, and, apparently, puffy sleeves.
Do people still do this? Not really—at least, not intentionally. Ski ballet was a demonstration sport at the 1988 and 1992 Winter Olympics, but the IOC apparently failed to see the athletic merit in the discipline, and declined to make ski ballet an official Olympic sport. After that crushing defeat, worldwide interest in ski ballet tailed off, concurrent with the rise of new freestyle skiing disciplines like ski cross and slopestyle.
This didn’t make the Olympics? What was the IOC thinking? Friend, if I knew what the IOC was thinking, I wouldn’t be wasting my time blogging for nickels. Bring back ski ballet! Or acroski! Ski dancing! Dudes with sleeves and poles! Whatever they call it, I’ll watch it. X

Flowers in Progress: Scientific Illustrator, Noel Badges Pugh
Scientific illustrator and artist Noel Badges Pugh has an incredible knack for drawing flora and fauna. He recently illustrated an entire field guide about bees and keeps a regular Tumblr, Art in Progress & Completion, where he posts these tantalizing drawings of buds and blooms. Maybe it’s because this is the coldest winter in 30 years, but I’m spending the rest of my day looking at these
Stale, Sage, and Mark. If this is the future of snowboarding, we’re in good hands.
