All By Myself

[weather|sunny][water|5 @ 1552h]
[mood|relaxed][music|  Placido Domingo - El Condor Pasa]

It's very quiet here today.

They're having a Company Frolick-In-The-Snow Day =) They rented a bus and took everyone to Cypress (or Seymour, I don't remember) for a day of skiing, boarding, taboganing, tubing, snow shoeing or whatever people want to do.

I didn't go. A) Too much stuff to do. B) Not a cold weather frolicking type of person. C) Refuse to spend $300,000.00 for gear. The company's paying for lift tickets, rentals and stuff today, but I'd still need the basic personal stuff (jacket, pants, goggles, toque, footwear, etc.)

I am, however, enjoying a nice, quiet, undistracted day at work, listening to my Placido, louder than necessary, on my speakers - as opposed to one earphone only because I'm afraid of being talked to and not hearing. =)

I'm right here.
Not a cold weather frolicker either. Why people want to get frozen and snow down their boots and numb fingers and all that,and risk death on ski slopes, I have no idea.

Beach, margararita, towel and good book is more my thing. Maybe snorkel gear. And coconut drinks. And palm trees.

Yeah my view is, why would you pay someone so you can throw yourself down the mountain, and repeat the process?

The only winter sport I enjoy is hockey. Too bad it can get expensive...

I don't like The Big Evil Fireball In The Sky[tm].

Beach hut, nice gentle cool breeze, palm trees, margarita, laptop, internet access, no mosquitos, bugs or any other creepy crawlies.

Yeah, I like your version. I like the big evil fireball when I'm not directly in its line of sight, but it sure beats cold and rain and snow and clouds.
