My self-summary
Let's go to Colorado! They said.
Let's go Skiing! They said.
It will be the time of your life! They said

Like any budding adventurer, I was quite eager to undertake this flight of fancy where I would spend the weekend inhaling the cool mountain air and skiing down the slopes with the greatest of ease.

Day 1: Before hitting the slopes, I had to reach them in one piece. Our group lands in -7F Polar Vortex conditions. I proceed to flag the rental car shuttle and experience for the first time what -7F really feels like. That's the kind of temp where it hurts to breathe. I reach for my bag to get some gloves to protect my hands only to find that I had accidentally packed a pair of woman's leather, medium sized driving gloves, Boston Strangler edition. Needless to say they were quite inadequate. Our shuttle arrived in the nick of time before frostbite kicked in and we were off to the rental place. At the rental place I was shocked to find that they upgraded my $6.99/day compact car to a Mini Van with the handling finesse of a cow in a supermarket trolley.

Day 2: I made it to class on time! We were greeted by our ski instructor Bob who assured us by the end of the day, we would be skiing down hills like a pro. First part of the lesson was on getting on and off the ski's which wasn't too bad. Then came the important part on how to stop moving: 'The Pizza' or 'The Wedge' where you push your heels outward in order to arrest your momentum. "Remember Sonny Bono? asked Bob. Great, That's what I needed, A ski Instructor with a Gallows sense of humor. This was going to be a long day....

To keep a long embarrassing story short, to all you ski bunnies out there, I would like to have a word or several with you.

I spend the weekends catching up with friends and laundry. I'm fortunate to have a good circle of friends in the same city. They come in handy when you want to unwind and laugh off a particularly long week at work.

There's a lot more I'd like to put in here but before I accidentally cure the insomniac in you, I would love to hear from you.
What I’m doing with my life
So when I'm not up in the mountains trying to be a general nuisance, or out adventuring and proving Murphy's law only applies to me, I spend a relatively calm/mundane life as an Engineer at an Oil and Gas company. How's business you ask? While it might be awesome to fill your tank for the price of Laundry detergent, it does have an impact on the economy.
I’m really good at
Holding a conversation, making people laugh, eye for detail, having a good time and being silly in general
The first things people usually notice about me
I was told by these two ladies who worked at a chocolate shop that I have gorgeous eyes. If I could only see myself like the way they did :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I'm super selective - I do love a good blockbuster or mainstream Hollywood as long as its not directed by Michael Bay or George Lucas but I'm a sucker for any Good Indie flick
Favorite Movies: King's Speech, The Godfather, Usual Suspects, Heat, La Misma Luna, Inception, True Grit, Pan's Labyrinth, The Pianist, Dr. Strangelove, Frost/Nixon, Fish Called Wanda, There will be blood

Food: Italian, Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, Indian

Music: From classic rock to contemporary, my list is too long to list.
Six things I could never do without
My Smile
My friends
My sense of humor
My Smartphone
My Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Interior design - go figure. Oh that and astronomy/star gazing
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, entertaining friends, checking out new places to eat in Houston or watching a movie
You should message me if
You are beautiful, kind, compassionate, intelligent, witty, wonderful, giving, generous, self-assured, modest, humble, outgoing, shy

Or if you want to hear how my ski trip ended.

Or if you just want to give me something valuable, like eternal wisdom, several ski lessons, etc
The two of us
