Dear, Stupid, Stupid Diary: Ugh. Another poopy day at work. Man, I wish I could just quit, but the economy is jacked up so I cant afford jack crap. Actually, you know what I could do? I could cancel my cell phone, the Internet, and go live in the trees. Yeah, thats right. Reside in nature, just like dude in The Baron in the Trees. Hell, yeah! Ill show all yall suckers.
Whoa, there, John Muir. Dont get too hasty now. Instead of ditching a firm mattress and a clean wardrobe for an arboreal lifestyle, how about taking some baby steps during the Arizona Tree Climbing Championship? The all-day shindig will feature tree aficionados squaring off in various skills competitions ranging from the work climb to the footlock for a spot in the Western Chapter ISA Tree Climbing Championship in Reno.
