So, snow...

It's almost that time again, when the marquis and I head off with assorted other Cambridge fen to slide down mountains and try not to break ourselves. We're going to Arabba in the Italian Dolomites this time, and the flight is at really silly a.m. on Saturday. So tomorrow is all about packing and doing and getting down to Gatwick.
The book is pottering along. I'm taking a notebook -- the old-fashioned kind made of paper with a binding, that you write in with a pen -- so I shall be off-line until I get back (on the 28th Jan.) Have a good week, all.

How exciting! I'm so envious that you go on ski vacations. My spouse does not ski. Enjoy!

I don't know why anyone would pay good money to go get wet, cold, and possibly broken, but since you enjoy it, have a lovely time! :-)

Have a good time. Please not to get broken, or buried in snow traveling at a high rate of speed, or anything else bad. Including paper cuts from that notebook. Sneaky things, notebooks!

Yummy! Enjoy it for me....the ongoing health joys (not!) make it harder for me to get in the slope time. Plus annoying little things like work, and a story I was gathering data for last winter threatens to explode in a big way, and weather is sucky...lovely 40 inch dump but the Pineapple Express threatens to melt it all.

Oh well, if it melts, the ensuing flood-related scandal might get me an article or two.

Enjoy!

I wrote most of my thesis on paper before I typed it up - somehow typing doesn't give me quite the same feeling of creation as pen and paper

Whee! Have a nice slidey time. As you know, I do not understand this impulse, but hey.

"a notebook -- the old-fashioned kind made of paper with a binding, that you write in with a pen"

Do not understand this either. Paper? Pen? I know all of these letters, but the words escape me... *strokes Laptop of Heavenly Perfection, reassuringly*

See you at silly-2 am, then :-) I've brought spare notebooks with me, albeit the titchy sort we use to jot down things that occur to us during sermons, just in case you should run out.

Arabba's a lovely area! At least, it was in August when it had no snow. Hopefully also lovely with snow. Which does make sliding down mountains easier.
