Here's a picture from my first day out here in Utah. I took it with my phone at the top of Deer Valley. I wanted to take real pictures with my real camera, but the batteries somehow slipped out of it when I took it out of my pocket and then fell 40 feet below into the snow while on the lift. Oh well.

Skiing, Beers, and Mormons

I'm headed to Utah tomorrow to ski for about 4 or 5 days. This will be my first ski trip since Vail last year. Skiing in the Rockies is really incomparable to anything you can find on the East Coast. It's going to be a most righteous trip. I don't have much else to say because I'm afraid of jinxing it, despite my firm disbelief in jinxes. If irony is to be glaring, I'd prefer not to goad it on a public forum. So, all I can say is that I'll bring back pictures of skiing, beers, and Mormons.

And I apologize for not posting much lately. I have some things in the works but no time to work on them. Sigh, I know; a blogger palliating his laziness with extenuating circumstances is about as pathetic and dull as watching Tron on a nice Sunday afternoon.

let the heavens open

Since it doesn't snow in the Mid-Atlantic anymore, it's hard to get excited about dangerous winter weather phenomena, which is why I'm giddy about the crazy thunderstorms rolling across the "South" and bearing down on the East Coast. Summer thunderstorms can be spectacular, so I'm really looking forward to (hopefully) seeing some fireworks outside later this afternoon, and what a treat that would be for early February. God bless SUVs.

In the spirit of unfettered chaos, I took this picture from my apartment last summer as a deep dark storm rolled in the late afternoon.

Superbowl Monday

Ever since my Junior year (high school) AP Chemistry teacher obstinately gave us a test the day after the Superbowl, I have strongly advocated Superbowl Monday becoming a national holiday. Considering about 1/3 of the entire country watch this game, I think it's only fitting to have a national day of rest following dedicated to the event. If you disagree with me, you're a terrorist.

Does this look like a productive worker to you? No. It's Superbowl Monday.
