Move aside Warren Miller

Guess what I did this weekend? You guessed right I went skiing, but it was different because some of the skiing took place at Sugarloaf/USA. Whether or not there is a Sugarloaf/Canada, Sugarloaf/Switzerland or Sugarloaf/Iraq, they still attach the USA to the end, which I don't really understand. The weather was amazing and I finally got a chance to use the video camera and film some skiing movies, nothing to exciting, but it was good to test it out, I just need to find something to hold the camera in besides my backpack.

We had a funny experience yesterday when leaving Sunday River, yesterday. After skiing, I grabbed the car and was waiting in the load/unload zone for the rest of my party, when all of a sudden the giant buses full of kids parked behind me and trapped my car in the load/unload zone. There were two openings wide enough for my car, but one had about a six inch drop and the other one involved a large icy bank and I probably would have either bottomed out or slid into a bus. After several failed attempts to leave, we finally asked one of the bus drivers to move his bus. It was just so funny that we were trapped with no way out.

I got home last night and it was nice for about five minutes before my family got home and then of course the peace and quite ended. It was actually going fairly well until I started using the internet at the kitchen counter and the kitchen all of a sudden became Grand Central Station. My stress level soared and I had to retire to my room. Aaaaargh!!!! I then grabbed the guitar and tried to practice and I played horribly. I guess that is what you practice for anyway.

This morning on my way to work I saw my first Honda Element on the road. I glanced in my rear view mirror and had to do a double take. It looks so strange and the guy driving it just didn't seem to fit the demographic group they are trying to sell to, but maybe he is a closet extreme sports junkie. Another weird thing I saw this morning was a police truck driving through Downtown Crossing at about fifty miles an hour. It was just so strange to see a vehicle drive so quickly through such a busy part of the city. Luckily it was seven o'clock and nobody was there, but it was totally strange. Okay that is enough for today, I also want to give Em a shout out, I hope you are having a better day today :o)

One sweet world
Around a star is spinning
One sweet world
And in her breath I'm swimming
And here we will rest in peace
