Are you sure it wasn't in the 60's yesterday?

I went outside yesterday and it felt so warm, I thought it must be in the fifties or even higher. I was walking around without a jacket on thinking how all of the snow was going to melt. Boy did I get a surprise when the sign at the bank said it was only 27 degrees outside. Apparently it has been extremely cold, it would have to be to make 27 feel like 60. Why do banks have the temperature on their signs? Should we really rely on them as our public meteorological source? Just strikes me as odd.

Believe it or not I wasn't skiing yesterday, so for once I am going to tell you about my weekend day. I left Bethel on Saturday night, because the skiing was not so great. I got home and pretty much just went to bed. Sunday morning I woke up with the intention of watching some tv shows I had taped and just getting some rest for a change. I went downstairs to get some breakfast and came back upstairs and ate it in my room. Little did I know I apparently offended my family because I didn't say "Good Morning!!", my mother lectured me about it later. Yet another reason why I have to move out. About an hour later, my phone began to ring and within twenty minutes I was in the shower and then on my way to play some pond hockey down in Plymouth. So much for getting to the taped shows. I made it down in about an hour and twenty minutes and was skating on Long Pond by 12:15. We proceeded to skate and play hockey for the next four hours or so. I wasn't too happy with how I played, it brought back flashbacks of how bad I really am at hockey, especially on ice skates. I ended up with a couple bumps and bruises, but it was a great time. The exhaustion I felt has surely inspired me to get back on the treadmill and to start working out again.

After leaving Long Pond around six I headed back to The 'Bury to attend a small Super Bowl party at my house. I was hoping for a ton of yummy food, but unfortunately there was only small crap and my stomach was not really in a great mood. So I had some chili, mozzarella sticks, and Sprite and just made my tummy more upset. To be honest I didn't really watch much of the game because I was doing laundry and getting prepared for the big trip tomorrow. The good news is that my packing is done, but I am still unhappy about the bag situation. I have a duffel bag, ski bag and boot bag. Now I want to bring another bag for my laptop, as a carry on, but then I will have four bags and I think that is too much. I have less than twenty four hours to decide what I am going to do.

Maddox has updated his web page with some pretty clever thoughts on our amazing president. Check out his always interesting page George W. Bush readies for war

So this will be my last entry until I can get to a wired machine. I am scared at how many journals entries I will have to read once I get back. I might need an extra vacation day just to catch up on all you crazy LJ'ers, especially Ry with the novel length entries. Have a great week and I will talk to you all on the other side.

We're climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
These things we cannot change
