Weekend update

I know I'm way overdue on weekend updates, stretching back for many months if not years.

This past weekend was the start of drewuniversity's spring break. While my co-workers were struggling with the email server, I was hitting the slopes with jenniever. What says spring break more than skiing? jenniever's mother had talked to some friends and ski club buddies, and between them and her father, I had just about all the gear I needed. I picked up some goggles and gloves Friday night, then we crashed at her mother's place. The ski club her mother belongs to had a bus leaving from a nearby town, which took us up to Windham Mountain.

The only other time in my life that I've skied was eight years ago with chiquib, back when we were dating. That was a weekend at Mount Snow in Vermont right after a snow storm, skiing down fluffy powdery fresh snow under bright clear skies. Friday of that weekend I did the bunny slope for a while, then struggled down the mountain with chiquib and her brother's girlfriend, finally getting motored down by the staff like a total tool. Saturday, after a bit more on the bunny slope, I was up and down the mountain on green and a bit of blue without any problems beyond falling every so often.

The next day I was beat. My knees, sides, and neck were killing me. After a day of lazing about, jenniever and I caught a bite at Rue de Jardin. Then we joined petemagyar and Bob de Bob, making our way to the studios over the Hammerstein Ballroom in midtown, where melasippo_mysp was having a birthday gathering.

Next, a wideathtrip, which I just have to linkify.

So, how do you people write entries? We've talked in the past about the current music thing. Some people put in whatever was playing when they started writing, some use what's playing as they finish up, some people write in an appropriate song whether or not it's playing, and some just totally lie. So when do you post entries? Do you write them up ahead of time and throw them up when you know you'll get more comments? Do you save them to a second journal (like some of you do) or private entry (like I do), leaving them waiting in the wings until you know people are reading? Do you just not care, and just post when the mood strikes, going straight from your fingers to teh intarweb without a holding position? How do you do it?

DAMN YOU NC8000!!!!
