Tweeg had an exciting VD.

I had a nice one, although we didn't do anything Valentine-y. We sold a bunch of gaming stuff at a convention flea market and made $400. Then we hung out with cool guy Ken Hite for a while.

Ours was going great. We had a nice ski-day. It was my first day on snow blades and I had a pretty good time on those. There was the token embarrasing falls on the first couple of runs (including a rather simple blue run) but by the end of the day I was having a lot of fun...they're ridiculously manouverable compared to skis, so moguls and tree skiing is an absolute blast.

However, on the way home from the hill, my girlfriend's car battery died completely, and the car just sort of slowed to a halt and stalled. Luckily we could see it coming with the clock dimming and all the electronics fucking up, so we managed to be in a town when it happened (rather than somewhere at the side of the highway.) Long story short, the alternator was broken and we had to get her dad (sigh) to bring us his spare battery.

Do blades use the same bindings as normal skis? They look like they're a blast to use, but I don't think Bridger rents 'em, and I don't want to buy a lot of extra stuff.

Ok, so perhaps spending VD evening at a gay bar wasn't my most brilliant idea ever... :?

Better than me... I spent it getting my ass kicked at Warhammer.

It depends on the Blades. Mine had the weird wire bindings that use normal ski boots but clip on differently. The nice thing is you don't need any special tools or technical knowledge to adjust the bindings; the catch is there's no tension release so you run the risk of twisting your leg pretty bad (I was using this style). There are other, nicer Blades that use regular ski bindings. Both use your normal ski boots, though.

Cool... I'll have to give that a try some time. Do you use poles with them?

I didn't, and I think the people that do are kind of dorky. In my opinion most people just drag their poles behind them anyway, rather than use them properly (plant-lift-turn whatever), and you really don't need to do that with blades because they turn so easily.

The last two times I've been "skiing" I've rented Blades instead and had an absolute blast... If you're a skiing purist and prefer the speed and, well, "grace" of skiing, then you won't like Blades...

There's three types of binding that I've seen, one that clips onto the front and back of your ski boots, one that has a regular ski-boot style, and one that you can just get in with snowboard boots / any boots at all...

I think they're a blast, anyway...

I was incorrect about my VD.
My roomate left town, so I sat around and acted all emo about my old relationship and watched movies. Stupid human emotions.

The quick "I'm at work" answer.

When I first started 'coming out', my ex and friends took me to this tg-friendly gay bar; it's an easy place to go when I'm especially bored, as the incongruities between my id and what I look like don't really matter. I wasn't there for picking up a date, it's just the only bar I've ever been to that doesn't bore me to tears.

My Valentines weekend was pretty good. Went up to Eidelweiss over in Madison NH. Rented a house for the weekend, went cross country skiing, shopping, lit off fireworks etc. Even the emergency trip to the hospital at 11 at night didn't disturb the mood too much.

Didn't do anything Valentine-y but had a good day anyway. We took one of windsong's students to see Peter Pan (contractual obligation: we'd offered the service in a "silent Auction" last year). I enjoyed the movie, and the kid we were with was well-behaved, though I can't say I really like him very much. He comes from a rich family, and we saw the inside of the house when we dropped him off. Animal heads on the walls, skins on the floor, chandeliers made out of antlers.. it was a monument to DEATH. Myself, I'd rather see one animal for a moment in the wild than fifty animals dead for eternity on my walls, but perhaps I'm unusual.

We also watched "Some Like It Hot", which coincidentally enough, involves the St. Valentine's Day Massacre! Cool, huh?

Well, to be fair, it's probably not the kid's fault, but his dad's. He would probably be just as content to collect Pokemon cards instead of a throng of taxidermized woodland creatures.

Ah, I hadn't meant to imply that the kid was at fault there. The dislike of the kid was a separate sentiment. Though I can't say I like the dad either, now you mention it.
