The snow commeth.
Two weekends ago was supposed to be our Mount Marcy extravaganza, I got sick on Wednesday the 5th and didn’t recover until the following Monday. The trip was off. A friend of mine told me about a movie that was playing at the Palace Theater in Albany. It was a Warren Miller movie about extreme skiing. The ticket price of 22 bucks included 6 free lift tickets to local ski resorts, not bad.
I went skiing for the first time this last weekend at Jimminey Peak in Mass. My brother, myself, a friend, and his friend came along. We had all went to the movie the week before and got our free lift tickets, schweet. Mike (he works on the same floor as me and my brother), took us to the newbie slope. He concluded that we could skip the bunny slope since we were doing fine on the slightly larger one that was next to it. We did that a few times and then headed over to the novice run. We did that a bunch of times and then mike convinced us to go to the top of the mountain and do an intermediate. That wasn’t too bad, only wiped out like 10 times, but we made it. I went again to the top but my brother stayed at the bottom since he was getting a bit beat up and sore. I didn’t wipe out as much, and I’m slowly getting a little better. Skiing is really addicting, I’m itching to go again and make good use out of our free tickets.
We got a snow blower finally, it made the task of shoveling snow out of the driveway much quicker and easier (duh). It was really surprising how much quicker. The foot and a half or so that dumped on us was quickly cleared out in about an hour and a half as opposed to the usual three hours plus or minus that it would usually take us.
It’s almost Christmas and it makes me want to be in a relationship. It’s just so nice to have someone to share it with.Â Winter brings on those cravings for some cuddling in front of a fireplace, but alas. I started talking to a girl who seemed to be Cindi’s twin I swear. First year English teacher, vegan, outdoorsy, likes celtic and folk, and all that. It seemed to be going good and then she stopped talking to me. Recently there was the mountaineer, ice climbing, rock climbing, super adventurous girl who seemed like the perfect match. She also no longer talks to me either. I don’t get it. Why does it seem like they just drop off the face of the earth when everything starts to go so well. I find myself missing Cindi. Hopefully she’ll have some time over winter break to hang out for a day.
Work is going insane. We have so many pending deals it’s crazy. We have been going at an incredible rate for the last few months, and this last week we just picked it up a notch. Once the deals go through we can hire someone new to take some load off. I’m not sure if we will be able to handle all the new stuff otherwise.
