Mountain to Bay

So I went to the mountain today to work Raven's Edge (our club race) and it was a good day. It was windy and rainy and fairly typical Baker weather, but the company was exceedingly excellent. I really enjoy my days on the mountain with the crew I roll with. Today was a lot of work, but that's to be expected. Lots of hauling stuff around and fixing and salting and measuring and so on. But the two people that I spend most of my time with on the mountain are easily some of the funniest and most fun people I've met. 

So given this lovely day I've had, I come back to Bellingham and attempt to eat dinner with some friends. I would like to tell them about my day and the wild shenanigans we get up to. However, I'm finding this more and more difficult. Not only do these friends not know those friends, but they don't seem to want to hear what I've been up to. Which is a little off-putting when I've had such a good day so far. Its not that they don't care, its just that they have no frame of reference to compare it to. And they are most likely very done hearing about the mountain given that I've been talking about it all winter. So sorry for spouting about it. I would really love for these two friend groups to overlap, but I don't really think that's very possible. If they did though, I think it would be magical (if you are reading this and get the joke, the magic might involve glitter glands--Poof!).

Last night I went to a friend's house to have a bit of fun. It was just supposed to be a chillax time, but as the evening progressed, it became a party. Interestingly enough, the two friend groups overlapped here. and i think  it worked okay. One of the friends is a party-kinda-guy and the other is definitely not, but I think it worked out given the smaller nature of said party. Very curious.

All in all, I'm just really glad I have the friends I do :)


  1. Mayhaps it is a strong possibility that said friends of the not listening nature have been off-putted by another's nature of not listening to their stories, quickly stopping them, and proceeding to tell a 'better' story in an ongoing attempt to one-up everyone.

  2. thank you for your comment. It seems that you have a personal issue with me, and in that case I'd strongly suggest that you bring it up to me in person.
