mat, emily, mom at our christmas eve dinner at lith's........matemilymom (20k image)I got a few CDs from work today. Most were still in my old desk from when I was on the 4th Floor. I picked up: Yoko Ono’s blueprint for a sunrise (anyone who says Yoko broke up the Beatles is ignorant about anything Beatles related, go read a book you lazy fuck), Action Figure Party, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s the album (i had to check it out), Limp Bizkit (can always be a coaster), & Tenacious D. I also brought home my X-Men video from this summer.

Just a few words about Tenacious D. I hadn’t heard a helluva lot about them. Becca mentioned them once and this guy who used to work with me said they “rocked”. Well I wasnt impressed at all. go figure. It didnt even warrant as good as a coaster. They brought to mind, sub-par Spinal Tap meets uninteresting potty humoured Weird Al Yankovic, wanting to try and shock like the Frogs. However their approach and execution were nowhere near the quality and bizarely cleverness of the Frogs. This CD totally reminded me of when Adam Sandler put out a “comedy” CD back in high school. Sure we laughed a few times when it came out and thought it was the shit for 4 days. But it’s almost 8 years later and I still have listened to it maybe twice after stealing it from that frat-boy in college. Anymore talk of this is a waste of oxygen. To each his own. Or so they say…

I am still sore as shit. Remind me to not go skiing again. Actually I think I am going in two weeks again! Woo!

Also I am selling my digital camera. If you want to buy Mat’s digital camera with all the fixin’s (flash, memory cards, filter, batteries, etc) that has been taken care of like no other, bid here.

Tonight I went skiing with a few friends from work. All the part-timers were invited and some other people as well. Kranias, Korinne, Christy, Melissa and Melissa from Allied came. We ended up going to Ski Liberty doing some night skiing. I was pretty apprehensive about it, as I’ve not ski-ed in ages. Prolly since I was 14 and wore eye liner. But it was mega fun. I went on the beginners slope a few times with everyone to get the hang of it and then did it once or twice more alone with Christy just so we got the hang of it a little more before advancing. Finally we went to the 2nd slope. It was pretty damn high up. Pretty much 3 times higher than the 1st one. The first time down I did fall a few times but mainly went pretty slow to stay with Christy. We all wanted to go back up and do it again, but the others (sans Allied Melissa) wanted to go to the mega hard ones. So me an Melissa took to the 2nd slope a few more times. I wiped out pretty bad one time in to the cliche of falling down the mountain in a ball of snow. Everything in my pockets fell out too. I was yelling to Melissa that I was looking for my wallet. I seemed to care more about my wallet than if I had broken any bones. It was crazy fun though. I am sore as hell. I know it will only be worse tomorrow. The things we do for a thrill these days.

Last night I went to dinner with Emily’s Father and his wife and her son (with girlfriend). It was very cool. I am feeling more and more comfortable with Emily’s Father. I am not even intimidated by him at all. And that guy can make me laugh even when I have no clue what he’s babbling about. Emily seems to think that he only talks about two things with me. #1:: Yiddish and Jewish stuff & #2:: Radio Industry stuff. Yeah, basically that is all we do talk about. At least I can sound intelligent about it, for the most part. We got food from Cafe Zen in Baltimore. The foodage was yummy. I got Tofu and Cashews. It was good. Not as good as Yuan Fu’s. But then again, nothing is really as good as Yuan Fu’s. Then after that we just watched some TV and called it a night.

Here are some I-Zone snapshots from tonight. Notice the wonderful use of flash limitation.
