Nice Weather

Once again it was another busy weekend for me. It all started on Friday night at PF Chang's for dinner, as usual it was excellent. Next was the new Harry Potter movie, which was a bit long but true to the book. Having to sit in the second row, did prove to be a bit exhausting. I don't know how they are ever going to squeeze the fourth book into a movie, it will probably be six hours long and will require an intermission. I am still going even if it is eight hours long.
Funny Story Time I got home at 12:30 and was quite exhausted, so I got into bed and shut the light off. I smelled something bad, and then my shoulder felt damp. I quickly jumped from the bed and turned the light on, and saw a wet spot on the bed, in an instant I knew the cat had been in my room. She has been sick lately and urinating all over the place, and unfortunately my bed was her latest victim. I took the sheets off and put them in the hall, but I don't have a spare set and my sleeping bag was in the attic. So I flipped the mattress over and rotated it, bundled up with about five layers of clothes and slept on the bare mattress. I have the best luck.

On Saturday, I went to my second wedding in two weeks for my friend Victor from work. It was great, but the snowstorm was really annoying. By the time we left the reception, my car was covered in ice and snow and it took about ten minutes to clean it off. The wedding ceremony was short, which is a good thing and the reception was fun. I can't believe how much food they serve at weddings, people are always saying that weddings are so expensive, I think most of the cost comes from the six courses they bring out. I think it would be easier to have a one course meal, first of all it will be cheaper and the second reason is because by the time the main course comes out most people have filled up on salad, soup, crackers, hors d'oeuvres, rolls, fruit, pasta and whatever else is served. It turns out that the most expensive part ends up being wasted because nobody has any room left. It would probably be okay to serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as the main course, since nobody will be eating it anyway, at least you would save some mad cash. The length of the reception would also be cut down drastically because more then 50% of the time at a reception is spent eating. Just think how much more time could be spent dancing, (oh wait maybe it is not such a great idea). Either way Victor's reception was fun and I had a great time. Best wishes to Victor and Lesley.

Now back to the snow, while it is not good for a wedding day, it is essential for skiing. The snow inspired me to head up north on Sunday morning, making it three weeks in a row, except this time I went to Sunday River. The roads were terrible and it took me forty minutes longer than usual to get there, but it was worth it. It is true that there were only a couple trails open, but American Express was amazing especially at the top and the terrain park was fun at the bottom. I can't wait to get the bindings put on my new skis and finally start practicing my helicopters :o) Hopefully I will be using them on my next trip up north on Friday.

Dave Matthews Band Lyrics of the Day
Song title: Don't Drink the Water
I live with my justice
And I live with my greedy need
I live with no mercy
And I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
And I live with my jealousy
I live with the notion that I don't need anyone but me
