Osteoparosis Amigos

Well, it was bound to happen, we are down to the last 24 hours in this godforsaken icebox. Angela and I will be thinking about ya'll as we drink tequila on the hot sandy beaches of Central America. Actually, we'll probably only think about you for the first shot or two, then things will start to get fuzzy, the music will seem really cool and I will think I can dance like Ricki Martin. Things will go downhill from there and I will wake up naked on the beach with no wallet or passport...wait a second, this is starting to sound like Joe's trip to Peru- sorry, I'll try to be more original.

For those who enjoy turning green with envy follow the blog link on your right to keep up with our fantastic voyage!

Hookah Nation

Hello my Girdwoodian friends! Finally (I know everyone has been on the edge of their seats), an update from the Northerner gone Eastern. I am fine and well and having a great time off in New York. Yes, I'm still unemployed and loving every minute of it. If you have the means I highly recommend the lifestyle, I'm addicted.

Looks and sounds like everyone is having a great time up there, smiles all around. I wouldn't expect anything less from the Girdwood crowd and I remain excited to keep myself up on the happenings in Glacier City...through a dial up connection. I'm in the NY countryside boonies where faster internet access methods are too expensive for two jobless brothers. Regarding the web, it's a far cry from the luxurious Vail Chalet accomodations but the upside is having 30 acres (more if you're unafraid of the hunters) of field and forest with which to play. We don't have enough snow for cross country skiing or snowshoeing just yet but the forecast for the next week looks hopeful. Some of the closest ski areas are scheduled to open today and tomorrow but that's stepping into very optimistic territory however, snowmaking seems to be very popular around these parts so who knows. I'm excited to check out Hunter Mt. this weekend (don't laugh) but only about half is open excluding the terrain park and halfpipe...WOO HOO! We'll see how that pans out.

Otherwise life is great! We spent Thanksgiving in one of the Five Buroughs of NYC and stayed through the weekend seeing the sites, going to shows, and finding interesting watering/smoking holes. It was my girlfriend's first visit to NY so it was non-stop for 3 days. Horus Cafe is where a very tasty tobacco blend called Egytian Pharaohs was smoked out of the top Hookah. Dan should recognize the bottom Hookah. That was my last night in Girdwood, I had to indulge. Thanks Dannyboy.

Stay happy and healthy everyone!

Girdwood Film Festival & Gift Exchange

This is formal notice confirming seconding of the motion to combine this year's film festival with the annual Chinese Gift Exchange. Please note this combined event means we will need double the alcohol and as always keep gift purchases below $20. Incidentally Tom Cruise has had to cancel though he may still send an entry tentatively entitled "Top Gun II- Highway to the Dangerzone Repaved." I feel the need...
