Waterfalls
It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Man uses Barbie fishing rod to make record catch

Fri Aug 22, 2:51 AM ET

ELKIN, N.C. - David Hayes' granddaughter just asked him to hold her Barbie rod and reel while she went to the bathroom. He did. And seconds later he landed the state record channel catfish at 21 pounds, 1 ounce.

Alyssa's father had bought the pink Barbie fishing rod for Christmas and she had caught a few bluegill before her grandfather hauled in the catfish.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported the catch Aug. 5 in eastern Wilkes County has been certified as a record by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Hayes and his granddaughter have been fishing in the pond behind his house since she was big enough to hold a pole.

Hayes said his granddaughter worried he would break her rod. He landed the 21-pound fish on a 6-pound test line. It was 32 inches long, 2 inches longer than the rod.


And they say Barbie isn't a strong rolemodel?

The bitch caught a record fish! ;)

You know what sucks? I have wanted that Barbie pole for many years now but Mr Leaf is a poopyhead and won't let me get one. Says if I do get it, I have to go fishing by myself, which is no fun, and that he won't bait my hook or remove my fish for fear of being tainted by the pink. Well foo!

I'd probably be a better fisherwoman if I had a Barbie pole, dammit. :D
