Pllllltttt…

Too much, too soon. ~ Referee – Slapshot

These past few weeks have been crazy. In the past week alone, I have been over to Gunnison twice, logged day 9 on the slopes, super busy with work. Generally frantic.

So I’ll just jump right in…

Skiing:
We are finally getting some snow. Much needed and appreciated. Rach reminded me of an old Eldora maxim – STBG (Stop the Brutal Grooming) – which was in full effect today. We pulled out Luke’s stash of Big Dogs for a full-frontal assault on some tasty pow but were disappointed to find that Eldora slope-control had groomed the hell out of everything. Good times were still had but damn. Hook a brotha up. We have received another 6-8 inches at my house since getting home around noon today so perhaps a quick run up the hill will be in order tomorrow to see if the heinous grooming continues…

Running:
To be honest, Leadville has been haunting me a bit since the race. I am pretty confident that I gave it everything I had last summer but think I am going to give it another try in ’09. Too much going on right now to take another stab this year but I think that I’ll be able to tackle it again in a couple years. I may do a 50-miler this summer (Collegiate Peaks Ultra) and would still like to pace if I can find a good match. I haven’t been running much at all and now, with the snow, am probably going to have to find different ways of logging miles. I really miss it, though, so think that is a good sign.

Work:
We have been hard at work these past weeks and have continued steady progress on the Quintess site. We launched McLean Forge a couple of weeks ago and have a steady stream of project requests. Good stuff.

Movies:
I have been taking time to watch a lot of film of late. Here is a run-down of some of the titles:

  • Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead: Pretty amazing performances in a severely mediocre film.
  • Blades of Glory: Quite amusing. Watch this one.
  • Three Kings: Fairly straightforward narrative but great execution.
  • Flirting with Disaster: Another David O. Russell vehicle. Funny stuff.
  • End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones: Decent rocumentary about a great band.
  • The Bad Seed: Hilarious. Unintentionally so.
  • Curse of the Golden Flower: Not so good.
  • Waiting for Guffman: Not Guest’s best effort but really amusing nonetheless.
  • Secretary: Pretty awesome.
  • Fargo: It has been awhile since I have seen this one. Still really great.

So that about covers it for now. Peace.
