Dumpster Pools

Oh my goodness....

I woke up this morning and found myself in every newspaper and news station on TV and you know what I'm doing?
Jumping in the dumpster pool!
Jumping into a dumpster.... that was converted into a pool!

My parents must be so proud ;)
Dumpster pool
They're going to be placed outside of Grand Central station for the next 3 Saturdays so anyone on the street can hop in. How fun is that?
Check out this video to learn more about it!

That looks like it was a lot of work to make. I'm assuming they would be much cheaper than regular pools? Haha.

Ok, so I normally don't watch the news but there was a HUGE thunderstorm all morning in Illinois (HUGE) and I was looking for the weather. On ABC or NBC or one of those big stations (can't keep them straight) I saw this piece about the dumpster pools and I said "Man. That girl looks just like Color Me Katie. How weird! And she's jumping just like she does in the videos she makes. What a coincidence!" And then I watched the show and smiled and kept looking for the weather.

I can officially say that I RECOGNIZED you on t.v. You have been spotted and recognized by your blog, girly! That must mean you've made it. :)

colormekatie said...
