How y'all doin?

just got back from 4 days in the good ol' southern US of A. i enjoyed it quite a bit, apart from the hung-over flights back home yesterday.

they'd never heard of mint juleps at the hotel bar in Georgia! that, dear reader, is inexcusable.

skiid last weekend, hurt my thumb, had my old trusty rear-entry boots explode on me, bought new mega-massive +10 to Ski Skill boots yesterday, and we're headed back up this weekend.

wow, i shudder to think what my credit card bills are going to do to my bank accounts when they come in...

fun fun fun.
friday night we headed up to St. Adolphe, checked in to my friend's cottage, and had a very pleasant evening.
saturday, we hit the slopes, Ali for the first time and me for the first time in 12 years or so. well, turns out that after a morning of private lessons from my awesome friend V she's a natural.
we had an absolute blast, and are planning to head back up next week, and the week after that, and the week after...

my calves are very sore, as are my bulls and cows.

seriously evil subconsious i've got there, pal...
kept waking me up every hour or so last night.
and now i'm exhausted. i'd love to do a complete system wipe and reinstallation up in the old attic...

ah, weekend.

Very nice weekend. friday night i felt like a europeen rallye driver, barelling down the snow-covered highway.

saturday we went to watch Rambo, which we both thoroughly enjoyed for what it was. sunday we shopped for skiis, went skating, and watched the superbowl.

i've only a couple of concerns these days, though they be large and offensive. the first is one dream i've had for a while, whose fulfillment i anticipated shortly, has taken a severe detour and will require some fortune of the awesome kind to get back on track.

the second involves another of my more pleasurable hobbies, and the difficulty getting my schedule to mesh with my desire to get 'stuck in', as it were.

the third (okay, so there are more than a couple), is the stalling of my writing project. i haven't hacked at it in a while. i swear, sometimes i think there are folk out there who wish me much ill and misfortune...

interviews all day. i desperately need to find 5 people for our production floor.

oh, and deeeeeeelicious roast prime-rib of beef toniiiiight. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
