don't come to my door.

i'm kind of an asshole sometimes.

some people came and left a little piece of religious crap in my door yesterday, so i took a red marker to it and taped it up to my door at eye level, where it can be seen from the street.

sign of spring

this is how you know it's spring here: these signs go up all over.

actually, they go up on every dirt road and at the town line on any dirt road.

up to the tower

the bolton valley ski resort is not on bolton mountain. if you're on the chairlift, bolton mountain is the one behind you. the skiing happens on ricker mountain, although not right at the summit but off the shoulders.

vista peak looks like a summit, but it's not. i don't know how they decide what is and is not a whole mountain.

anyway, i went on a little hike up to the tower so that MB and the others could see it.

here's my video:

good morning, mud season!

in mud season, in the afternoons, all the dirt roads and driveways are soft. overnight sometimes they stiffen up.

last thursday afternoon it was very warm and things were very soft and in the early hours of friday the temperatures plunged back below zero, so friday morning the most dsitinctive sound around the neighborhood was the sound of tires spinning.

i came out of the house to go skiing and a neighbor couple was trying to push one of their cars out of the ice in which it was stuck so he could go to work.

i offered to help.

you know, because it's what you do.

since i was about to go skiing, i was already wearing my gopro on a chest harness and the guy said "are you going to gopro this for us?" and i said that i hadn't been going to, but i could.

if you're looking at that video, all the things that look like puddles? they are solid ice. they WERE puddles thursday afternoon, but not so much after the freeze.

so then after we got the car loose and they went inside, i discovered my transmission had frozen.

this is a problem that requires a little push.

*knock knock*

"hey, guess what?"
"your car needs a push?"
"be right out."

so we got that sorted and i went skiing.

mud season.

look inside!

nearly a year ago i had to go to the nice doctor and let him have a little look at the inside of my stomach and esophagus because i have a little reflux problem and while a reflux problem isn't in and of itself so terrible, if you're doing damage in there, it can be Very Bad.

despite the reflux, i am healthy and pink.

so yay.

and i have nice pictures. maybe i will use them for my christmas card.

bonus pay

so i was cleaning up, because occasionally i pick up my shit and put it away.

and for some reason i decided to actually go THROUGH a pile of papers instead of throwing them out wholesale.

good thing, too.
