winter games

rosas calendarHomer sent me a calendar from Rosa's restaurant, a Tuscon institution. I just love knowing all the Mexican Catholic holy days, as there seems to be a Saint for every day of the week. Plus the Aztec imagery is just too precious. Last year's calendar featured a maiden offering up some sacred herbs to a priest, and this year features Eagle Warrior Cuauhtémoc (1496 - 1525), last emperor of the Aztecs, getting ready for battle. I will be going down there over Spring Break March 21-27 for some Baja beach time with Homer, and possibly my brother.

Yesterday my fishing and rugby buddy Matt and I went to Deep Creek, MD to Wisp resort for some time on the slopes. I snowboarded and he skiied, and it was fun as the runs weren't too crowded. Only 1 run was the least bit icy, and the weather was reasonable. My muscles are so unaccustomed to boarding from the long absence that I was only able to do about 3 hours of it before my legs were burning, but hopefully it'll be a good warm-up for another trip where I'll be in better shape for 'boarding. We spent a lot of time checking out D.I.L.F.s with their kids. There were many.

Then I got home in time for the opening cermonies for the winter Olympics in Torino. I love the opening and closing ceremonies and I usually am bawling by the time they are done, as I am a sucker for the whole community of man, world peace and passion of the sport sort of thing. Gorging myself on healthy portions of sap and cheese, I didn't find them as moving as Australia or Greece's ceremonies, but some eye-watering did occur. However when Yoko Ono came on I cried out loud in horror, "PLEASE DON'T LET HER SING!!!" Mercifully she only read lyrics from her late husband's writings, which was good. NBC promises to hold back on the formulaic and overly sappy athlete profiles this year, focusing more on the althletic events, God forbid. Maybe they were reading blog entries complaining about how tiresome the vignettes were in the Athens coverage.

Speaking of peace on Earth and the goodwill of man, I feel this man is the embodiment of Peace on Earth, as his fur-shrouded abdominal tattoo states. I would feel most at peace resting my head on his torso, and I would direct as much good will towards him as I possibly could.

We are promised snow this weekend in the area. Again, the newscasts are hysterical and promise The Day Ater Tomorrow-type conditions. Take the forecasts and reduce them by a third or a quarter at least, and you'll get a more realistic prediction of how it will really be. Disastrous weather sells big time here on the East Coast. So far it is only drizzling, as usual.

My, my, my. Such a cynic.

One day, we truly will get Day After Tomorrow conditions and then where will you be without your milk, bread, eggs, colorox, batteries, plywood sheeting and extra drinking water. Then you'll be sorry. Just like that bug, that didn't work. And the other bug that did. Then it got cold and the one bug didn't have any food and the other bug did. And, unfortunately for the first bug, the second bug was a Republican, and it wouldn't share any of its food. Actually, that second bug was really kind of an ass. I'm going back to looking at Peace on Earth now.

He mis-spelled "Piece."

I thought this hot dude lived in Los Angeles?!

Just read Eric's last thread. Jimbo, you maybe also be the best spokesperson for bubble tea in the western hemisphere.

Yes the guy is hot, but give me WulfBeau anytime.

He's nice to look at, but he's unavailable hon. Plus he'd be away 70% of the time. Nice butt though...
