That's right....

It's trivia night at Leisure Public House!

I'm gonna start with Sunday

No, this footage was not me skiing. I snowboard, remember? I just thought it was a pretty sick set of footage.

Sunday was epic. Skibowl got 13 inches of fresh snow overnight. Aaron and I headed up late in the day and got on the lift around 1 pm. By 2:30 pm we were riding black diamond runs in the upper bowl. We weren't riding them well or with style, but we were riding them. Aaron had never been on a black diamond before. And he did great. We both made it down our first no-fall black diamond run. And to top everything off, we managed to grab some untracked powder in the lower ski area along the lift line. Truly an awesome day.

And I was so tired that after we got to the run-out below the lodge, I laid down for 45 seconds and thought to myself "I could take a nap right here." My legs shook for 15 minutes while we rehydrated with a beer and talked about the day. It was, without a doubt, the best day of this season.

Oh so true....

Wore out

I always hate when a pair of shoes dies. They always seem to have so
much life left. But they don't.

I'd consider resoling, but these are cheapo trail runners. And the interior upholstery is going too. Which means the shoes will start shredding socks. And good socks are very expensive. So it makes me sad because the shoes just *seem* to have so much life and utility left.

Shoe recycling, here I come.

First look

There he/she is, Dev and my kiddo. 12 weeks. If you look real close, you can see the resemblance to Dev. [grin]

So I ordered my Psychology text last night...

Thought I was ahead of the curve getting it ordered more than a week early.

Not so much as it turns out. The projected arrival date is the first day of class. With no expedited ship option. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Are Somali Pirates really bad men?

Or are they men fed up with a bad situation?
