far more clever than i

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. They wake up in the morning and that's the best they're going to feel all day."
- Dean Martin


SWMBA has often cautioned against "defrosting Mars" and all that, having too much imagination. i find it extremely adorable that every time they announce a mission to mars or discover something she wags her finger at them.

hehe. now i can show her a picture of this underground headquarters of the giant martian iguanoids and the recently discovered entrance to their sub-mountain lair. next step, train them to be my shock troopers and then usher in the earth's next golden age.

i vow to be strict yet benevolent, and while my judgements shall be beyond reproach and my justice swift and terrible, so shall my affection for the common folk be ever present.

i said ever present.

now if only my chief scoundrel would submit draft one of my, ahem, inaugural speech, to be broadcasted as an interruption of your regularly scheduled program and displayed on big screens in football stadiums and Times Square. Glorious, it shall be! Glorious!

that is all.

i lied: more skiiiiing ahead this weekend.

hey hey

i'm back.
the death-defying and nerve-destroying drive down to toronto with a mischevious car is done done done.

yesterday ali and ai skiiiiid Vallee Bleu, a wee little family mountain thang up in Val David, and while this would normally be a very inconsequential yet funfunfun outing for us, yesterday we kicked most of the ass that the hill offered for the kicking.

i got some much needed confidence right square in the face and off we went on the blue squares, eying the black diamonds in the eye and promising to trod upon their tender bits next time around.

we had sun, we had snow, we had the mountain effectively to ourselves, and it was awesome.

till next weekend!

i'm off again

bound for distant shores.

well, two or three days in toronto, at any rate.

i am actually looking forward to the drive. it's four to five hours of peace; just me and my radio, at my own pace and my own choice, stopping when i choose.

of coursse, i'd trade that in a second to have SWMBA sitting next to me. what an awesome specimen of the female gender!

another wonderful surprise for her

and sure-to-be awesome weekend in store for us both.

I'll give it to her as a nice little stocking stuffer for xmas.

on a different note, i've had major hankerins for some creative stuff as of late. maybe i need to schedule it in, like everything else these days.

*sigh* is that what it has come to? PING! My blackberry calendar pops up with a reminder that i'm scheduled to be creative for one hour on saturday afternoon...

ayup. well, for the time being at least.

hope this note finds the twos and twos of you who read this well.

that was awesome

yesterday we began the ski season in earnest. perfect conditions, a pretty little mountain, some entertaining seat-of-the-pants moments with some grateful and confused "how did i just get through that?" moments. more to the point, a wonderful day spent outside with SWMBA and a great friend of ours.

my new (old) skiiiiiis are fantastic.
