Challenge Met!

To recap:

Recently, Sarca challenged me to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. At first I wasn’t gonna do it, but she manned up and did it, and she called me out by name, so I had to do it.

And you? Go donate at

I think the video speaks for itself. Enjoy!

  1. Awesome job man! And funny about the first attempt!

    Scott, Deke, and James. Three good men, about to get wet.


    • Haha thanks! You know, it actually felt really good. Of course, I’m the guy who’s happiest when it’s snowing, so a few little ice cubes aren’t gonna phase me.

      The first attempt was going so well until, with impeccable timing, my daughter saw a bug in the sandbox just as I was dumping the water over my head. The rest of the video was her freaking out in the background. So, tonight was take 2. I got TWO chances to cool off! Sweet.

      Yep, I thought those three guys were up for the challenge. Let’s see what they do!

      \m/ \m/


      • OH NO A BUG! Yeah those things you can’t control at all times! The reason you haven’t seen mine is I want an audience so I’m just waiting for my neighbors to be available and they’ll help me out.


      • You’re lucky you have neighbours to participate. Ours are either seniors who are old enough to think we’re crazy for doing it, or just plain crazy. Seriously.


  2. Oh, it’s on like neckbone. NOW CAN YOU DIG THAT



  3. This was great! Love the Maiden tee, as well! \m/
    Take two! lol


    • Thanks! It’s all your fault anyway, you know.

      Sharp-eyed Lebrain readers will remember that Maiden t-shirt from last year’s Taranna trip video. I had Eddie on my TITS. Hahaha.

      It was indeed a second take – I did the whole ice/water dump yesterday, but my daughter screamed through the best parts and the video was useless. So, tonight, I had to re-do the whole thing. And I didn’t mind. The cold water actually felt good.


  4. Well done and awesome tee. Thanks for the challenge but I like my internet anonymity so I’m gonna pass and just donate to ALS (well, it’s MND over here) thanks.


  5. Well done KMA – will the blooper reel first take be available when the deluxe ALS Ice Bucket challenge dvd comes out?!


    • Thanks, stephen1001! I suppose I could post the blooper reel even before the DVD sees release, but it contains different challenges (which could not have happened), and it is really not pleasurable to listen to my daughter scream after she’s seen a bug she doesn’t like, so… no, I won’t. Suffice it to say, it was the same shirt, the same bucket, same spot in the yard, same incredibly handsome me. The second take suffices, for your eardrums’ sake. 😉


  6. I accept Aaron…I howled when you name dropped me !
    My daughters will take great honor in dumping ice water over the ol mans head!
    I will post the vid later today! My daughter works @ 2 so it will be done by than…


  7. Dude, for some reason, I am not getting any notifications when you reply to my comments on your blog…not sure why, but I’ll keep checking back – If slow to respond, that’s why.


    • I know, I’m not getting all my notices either.

      The only thing I can think is to go to your initial Reader page, click on Edit on the Blogs I Follow (at the top of the list) and make sure all the blogs you follow have the correct settings. Then log out and go back in. Wait and see what happens from there.

      Is anybody else not getting all their comments and replies? Maybe it’s a WP thing?


      • Well, I just got your last 4 notices…but I find if the replies go too deep (a reply of a reply of a reply) I won’t get them. I just saw your comment about FB and Twitter…:\
        I really don’t want to go to WP support about it…Is your WP template fairly new? Maybe it’s too old and causing the problems? I have no idea though…


      • Interesting. I don’t think our theme is too old – I just updated it not that long ago? I think? I could certainly dig around and see about getting a newer one, if it would help…


  8. Well now, my wife and 3 daughters along with me of course all the ice bucket dose today! Hahaha..and jaut figure 12 hrs ago I was sleeping!
    Thanks man!
    Like the site!


    • Way to go, Family Of Superdekers! That’s so cool that you got everyone involved.

      And you know what they say, right?

      A family that ALS Ice Bucket Challenges together… um… gets cold and wet together?


  9. “I got Eddie on my tits.”
