I'm thinking skiing! I bought my season ski pass the other day at Schweitzer and got a discount for buying early. It cost me the equivalent of 1200 cans of Coca Cola from the pop machine at work, or about 250 gallons of gas at today's prices. Or I could buy about 10,000 white corn tortlillas with 0 grams of trans fat, no lard and no colesterol. (to put the cost of an early season pass into perspective.) It's still a good deal compaired to Park City or Big Sky. That would cost me over 20,000 white corn tortillas, And I just can't afford that!
They keep using the same photo (above) for my pass that I posed for a few years ago when I bought early. At first I wanted my sun glasses on but they wouldn't let me. I bet I'm the only person with my helmet on in a pass photo. But I think they all know me now. Park City has the cool passes that you just walk by a thing and it reads your pass and a gate opens. They call it Fast Tracks and I think you have to pay extra for it. If you are racing it allows you to go in a different line and perhaps not miss the start of the race by standing in a long lift line. I had one of those , and it also knows how many days the pass is good for. Nobody has to swipe your bar code. We are so far behind the times up here. Perhaps I need my season pass implanted in a chip in my forehead. That way if I got lost they could just scan it and take me home. Just kidding, but it does remind me of a TV show I watched last night.
I watched Dr. 90210, and I was totally disgusted. This "doctor" "enhanced" a pretty young girl. I was very saddened by this. What the heck? She was happy with it. But it was a shame what he did to her at her young age. She was beautiful the way she was. What a creep, this guy.
It just shows you what is wrong with our medical system. Here is a trained doctor who is doing this sort of thing to pretty young women for bucks and there are lots of people who can't afford to see a doctor in any respect.
Anyway when ski season starts, I'm going to start a new blog related to just skiing, and mostly one aspect of it. I'll still blog here for regular nonsense.
