It's only eight days into 2007, so I've officially decided it's not too late for these.
Recap #1. Ski Season 2006 Recap
At the end of the summer, I posed a recap so I could look back at the good times we had out in
Montauk Amagansett (shut up). I meant to do one for *last winter*, er, a little earlier but never got around to it. But since I had all weekend to sit around on the internet as there's NO MF'ING SNOW TO SKI ON, I figured I'd post it up.
I shot for 30 days last season and ended up with 37. Shooting for 30 again this year, but two weeks into January and I'm already 7 days behind where I was last year at this time (14 days in 2006 vs. 7 days in 2007). Ha, it all seems like nothing next to the 100 days on snow I picked up working as an instructor @ Attitash in 2001/02 (thank you dot-com layoff!) Anyway, so the 2005/2006 season...
Nov 25 - Days 1 + 2 + 3 (Thanksgiving)
Dec 10 - Days 4 + 5 (broken shoulder + xray)
Dec 27 - Days 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 (New Years + Katie's skis stolen!)
Jan 6 - Days 12 + 13 + 14 (snowstorm + broken finger)
Jan 14 - Days 15 + 16 (a.k.a. coldest weekend ever)
Jan 21 - Days 17 + 18 (ladies in VT)
Jan 26 - Days 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 (Google ski trip + Bacardi + secret halfpipe)
Feb 11 Days 23 + 24 (the blizzard that missed VT)
Feb 17 - Days 25 + 26 + 27 + 28 (Beaver Creek, CO)
Feb 25 - Days 29 + 30 (susprise snowstorm = stuck in the ravine)
Mar 25 Days - 31 + 32 (helmet cam + Bacardi girls)
Mar 31 - Days 33 + 34 + 35 (@ Whistler, BC)
Apr 14 - Days 36 + 37 (Sink or Skim)
Recap #2: The Year in Cities
This was a pretty big meme last year and I was reminded about it again this year after seeing Kottke and Zach post about it.
Below = a list of cities I visited in 2006. Ordered (approximately) based on how many days I spent in each place. One of more nights spent in each place. My list isn't very ambitious, though at least I got out of the country
this year last year (if only to escape to Canada for a few days).
New York, NY
West Dover, VT (37 days on snow!)
San Francisco, CA
Austin, TX (SXSW)
Beaver Creek, CO
Syracuse, NY (Katie's grad)
Mountain View, CA
Philadelphia, PA (Sox vs. Phillies)
Recap #3: Top 10 Moments of 2006
After convincing a friend to jump on the "Year in Cities" bandwagon, she convinced me to put together a list of the Top 10 Moments of 2006 (which I took to be "Top 10 Good Times of 2006"). Now, most of these have teendrama links so I'm undecided as to whether (a) I'm really good at documenting good times or (b) my memory is so bad that I can't remember anything that doesn't have a photo attached to it (also see: "if it's not on Flickr, it didn't really happen"). So, anyway, in kind-of chronological order...
+ surprise powder day @ Mt. Snow (stuck in the ravine)
+ booted from Whistler jacuzzi with helmet cam
+ G ski trip after-party
+ being in Medway when Dad won his Selectman spot
+ the cookies Mom made for my bday
+ booted from the Hotel on Rivington hot tub
+ World Cup at the Angolan Embassador's estate
+ first time getting up on a surfboard
+ KAREN + Alex's wedding (tattos!)
+ JJ asking me to be Best Man (Xmas 06)
+ hitting big threes in the Beaver Creek park (read: finally getting back to where I was in 01/02)
+ dj'ing Google's SXSW party
+ stoopid Lucas throwing my camera into the ocean
Whew. So now can we can move onto 2007 already? (NYC rodeo pics tomorrow!)
