I Got a Fever...

Hello, my name is Megan and it has been two weeks since I climbed the Incline.

I'm beginning to itch. Seriously, it's in my veins. If I wake up before the alarm, I look at the time and mentally calculate if I got up right then, would I have time to get up and down before I went to work.

Unfortunately, the answer has always been no.

Add to it, we're under a foot of snow that has stayed for a solid week here, and the temps have been really cold.

Oscar, or Maybe Felix?

Sunday is the Oscars. For the second year (in a row!), we actually tried to watch some of the movies that were nominated, and even watched a movie (The Grand Budapest Hotel) before the nominations came out. For people who don't watch a lot of movies, this is a significant accomplishment.

I think I like watching Oscar nominated movies. It kind of cuts through the garbage and puts a "this won't suck" stamp on the films. Maybe I should go back and watch nominees of years past... but that would probably cut into my Incline-climbing time, and that's just not acceptable.

Vegetable Eater

Well, at the beginning of the year, I decided to, at least temporarily, cut the cord (or maybe the better word is bridle? leash?) on digesting animals. If you've known me at all, you aren't really all that surprised... I stopped eating cows back in 1999 (France, mad cow... totally makes sense) and last year stopped with the chickens, then had difficulty swallowing turkey.
