Holy cow, I am wiped out. The mountain beat me down yesterday. It was bee-YOO-tee-ful up there, but I sucked! My assplant ratio was inordinately high, and this morning I feel like I was beaten with shovels. I feel as if I should go up again just to prove to myself that I once knew how to snowboard.
Caught up with Allison (acadiabaird) for lunch, and I bought her a Guiness before they ran out of beer. And Tori - there is PLENTY of snow. Strap on your shoes and head up there for a hike - you won't be disappointed. :)

In other news, the foot is still dead.

In other other news, my "hang" (I like this term better than "not-a-date") the other night went very well. She was very friendly and cute, and fun to talk to. During the conversation, there was hand contact:
Me: [Talking about work or something] ... and when I get stressed, I bite my nails.
Her: Haha, I totally do too. Let's see yours. [Grabs my hands to inspect.]
And later, a hug goodbye.
However, I need some more information to figure her out. For example, I know she's recently out of a relationship, but I don't know how recently, how long the relationship was, and how she got out of it.
Also, just as a typical example of how I tend to overanalyze everything, I noted that four times now (twice in two separate e-mails and twice during the conversation last night), she's mentioned that she has gay friends.
It's interesting to me how people either deliberately or inadvertently stress certain characteristics about things. For example, when I mention my car, I usually don't say that it's a blue car unless I think that, for some reason, it facilitates the conversation:
Q: I love my car. It's red. I love the color. Do you have a car?
A: Yes, I have a blue car.
Q: I hate commuting. Do you live far from where you work?
A: Yes. I usually drive in. I have a blue car.
So why the gay friends line? Repeated four times, no less. So ok, maybe her ex was/is homophobic. Perhaps she also viewed him as unacceptably narrow-minded on a lot of other things, too. At any rate, I'm thinking she's bouncing it off me to gauge my reaction. But four times? And ... why? Either she's so staunchly pro-gay that she doesn't want to make friends with anyone who isn't, or she's sizing me up as boyfriend material?
I think we're going to "hang" again on Sunday, maybe see a movie.

I seriously cannot wait to see this movie (caution: may contain spoilers).
