Since we now have HIGH SPEED INTERNET at home, I've decided to get my act together and update my blog profile, include new links on my page, and finally post a photo. Since the photo has to be published on the internet for it to appear on my profile, I thought I might as well share it with you all.
This was taken in Austin just before Christmas 2004 when my friend Jamie and I went to see the huge tree made of lights they put up every year at Zilker Park. The strands of lights are all connected to the top of a moontower (yes, like in the movie Dazed and Confused), where they form the top of the Christmas tree. You can get "inside" the tree by standing near the moontower. Then the thing to do is look up at all the lights and spin around like mad. The lights turn into a big colored spiral, and when you finally stop you get super dizzy. Most people even fall down when they stop. Jamie took this photo of me just as I stopped spinning. I'm happy to report there was no fall afterwards, just a huge smile that is Classic Ali.
