so i told mb i was going to get a boyfriend for valentine's day.
to her credit, she thought this was very funny.
well, i needed someone to smooch for valentine's day and i told all my friends i wasn't fussy about gender. step up, boys and girls! i said.
and this guy whom i had never met stepped up to be my fake boyfriend and there was a lot of farting around getting him a ride and i ended up picking him up from someone who had given him a ride halfway at six freakin'-thirty in the morning out in the nowheres.
WHY? you are probably asking.
and you would be right to ask.
so, so a half day lift ticket at mad river glen is $49 and you have to start at noon, which is not so good for me because with my knees i need as much groomed terrain as i can get. but on valentine's day your full day lift ticket is $14.
IF - and that's a big if- you bring along someone to smooch in the ticket booth. no kiss, no discounted lift ticket.
so i brought along this guy, my fake boyfriend.
and he was very sweet and showed up with a little gift bag with candy and a rose, which i thought was very sweet.
and we had to kiss three times, because the first time we forgot to have the ticket man take a picture and the second time the picture didn't come out, but the third time was all good.
ok, so last year i was all like "let's not do anything for valentines day" and then i was all of a sudden and by surprise SAD that i didn't have anything for valentines day and mb was a good sport about it and arranged to have me receive a box of chocolates made locally.
it's just that playing ingress has seriously disrupted my daily routine and now sometimes i leave the house to go play before 0400, which used to be my best blogging hours and then when i get home i'm kind of cold and tired so i do only things that allow me to lie on the sofa.
yeah, i know, it's sort of a lame set of excuses, but here's a pretty picture i took for you while i was out playing.
this is the williston overlook.
it's also my first pano with my new phone.
used to be i had to stitch together panoramic shots the old fashioned way but now phones just DO that.
