I got 99 promblems..

I found myself surrounded by them tonight at the wall. Pink, green and the rest of the rainbow, they just keept coming in all sorts of colours. Nailed the green one but the rest just kept alluding my charms. At least a girl is not one!

is further advanced in Spain than in Brittain. No surprise there. The Thiessen Museum was really nice some excellent paintings of Renoir, Monet, Shiele and Toby.

I still would like to be on a board tough, but I'll guess I just have to satisfy myself with prancing around in my new Campers for now.

Reissend Nollen Glacier

Last day and some more hiking. This is on the way to the first ride of the day, which we kept tight on the right side of the glacier. Smooth powder, since it being protected from the sun...

But before that we relaxed up on the top. I had an apfelstrudel and some water whilst enjoying the views across both valleys and taking in some sun. Below the glacier this ride interconnected with the "ride of my life run" although we kept to the right of that picture.

All in all, I have to say that Engelberg delivered and then some. Not only did I have the ride of my life, I had the powderday of my life and the winter holiday of my life. The flat, Bierlialp was great and as always the partners in crime worked well too.


The ride of my life

Solid snow, solid board, solid guides, solid Gods! It all came together for me during this ride and magic was created. Big, fast and peaceful! We kept to the left half of the photo.

Thanks, Susanna for talking me down through the gnarly passages. Fredrik has got a good girl in you, but then again he seems to deserve it!



is an old Swiss word for avalanch. Or so I am told anyway. We took it on the day after the big dump and enjoyed a 1000 hight metres of powder from top to bottom. This is taken during our noon schnitzel session.

Just wanna dance and sing my song!

Came back for Cave In's gig at the Zodiac tonight and it was pretty groovy. Pearl Jam meets Nine and add lashings of fun and personality. The Professor feels it's more U2 meets, but hey that's just his opinion, man... Here's a banter example:

Singer goes "I like to drink and smoke whilst on tour".
Chick up front goes "I like to smoke too".
Singer goes "Ah.. um.. ..that makes us.. ..similar"
Guitarrist goes "So Steve, where's this relationship going?"
Bass goes "I can feel you want to play a song now Steve"

The Brainiac was pretty stoked as he finally got to meet the guys in the band he's been listning to for like a really long time. He said he felt like I would feel if I had hung out with Turbonegro. He must have felt pretty good to say that. Nevertheless he's wrong, nothing would ever come close to the feeling:

Karl goes "So Hank, how much do you want for your body"
Hank goes "My body, you can't handle my body"
Karl goes "How 'bout a cool zillion?"

He he.. KvH

Christ Church Park, 0800 am 4th of March 2006

It's a pretty place. If you could only have heard the birds and seen the frost bitten flowers.

Ahhh, uuum!

feels like I am walking in quicksand. Everything has felt really slow this week and it is not fun. From ironing the shirt, cooking dinner, washing up, shaving to drinking a glass of water. It's a strange feeling and these are strange days. I feel just so estranged.

What can I do but to try to go on, and look forward to snowboarding in Switzerland. It's only a week and a half away.

Go Me!
