Snowboarding 1, Ernie 0

I went snowboarding today (shocking isn't it?). Probably ties for the best day ever, conditions-wise, that I've been on the snow. (The other would have been about a year ago.) Actually, the conditions were probably comparable to this day, but I've gotten to the point where I'll do tree runs now, and with almost 3 feet of new snow this last week, dodging between trees in powder was new and exciting.

On the other hand, I'm not very good at it, and I spent a good amount of time picking my self up and shaking the snow off of me, and it's still work - as in I have to think about the turns, forcing them a bit, and it doesn't flow as nice as riding on the trails. Not to mention, riding in powder (and digging myself out of it), kicked my butt. My quads were killing me, and I took a long break for lunch, thinking I'd rest up and attack it again in the afternoon, but it was just ugly. I ended up stopping and having a beer, rather than risk hurting myself.

Yea for Watch It Now

I love the fact that Netflix's Watch It Now feature is now unlimited. I didn't use it much before (though really, 17 hours was plenty), but as I'm on a movie kick lately, the convenience is great. Of the three movies I have at home right now, I don't feel like watching a gangster movie, random anime I added to my queue after seeing it playing on a flat-screen at a bar, nor a documentary about children learning about the Holocaust.

I'm in the mood for a cheesy comedy or romance, so I settled on Nice Guys Sleep Alone . . . only because the title struck me. *shrugs*
