What's the deal with skiing? Why haven't the Blancos invited me? Where's the love.

Name: Rick

By the way, I propose a 3 race ski-off for Big Ernie. One downhill course, together, one downhill time-trial, and one technical course where we'll have to (god forbid) make turns.

Name: Ernie

I won the super-G and ski-jump in the 1986 U.S. Nationals in Sugarloaf. I qualified for the olympic team that year; however, a freak ski lift accident later the same day left me with a chip in my handle which took several surgeries from which to fully recover. I do not need to take the grief from a bunch of second rate yahoos whose greatest skiing resume line is watching the one-ski race scene from "Better Off Dead" eighteen times. I think I should race all of you for possession of your lives for several months, wait, that's what actually happens to the so-called "winner" when I come to visit.

I am only 6 weeks old and I can kick Big Ernie's ass...I shit more at one sitting than he can hold. He can't fact, I know for a fact that the last time he tried to ski, he fell off the T-Bar and chipped his base...look you will see the chip.

Name: California Bar CLE Headquarters

We are hosting a CLE at Squaw Valley in December...titled..."How To Drink Excessively All The Time Without Being Disbarred."

You will receive no CLE credits, but we will provide you with a bogus certification that you can submit to the IRS in order to write off your winter ski trip to Tahoe.

What up? How are the ladies treating you? Did you take my advice and try Drakkar for Dogs? My experience is that Labs and Boxers can't resist... You also may want to try a few new lines. I don't think, "Do you want to come back to my hole," works anymore now that you are not in Claremont. Also, "Whadda you say you and I go back to my place and split a sixer of liver lips?" is played out. Speaking of liver lips, Lance, how about a delivery? And while you are at it, I could use a case of Mean Mistreater. Greg only buys crappy Mexican beer these days. Also, a note for all, I have marked Big E, if you catch my drift, so regardless of his wanderings, he will always wear my scent. Peace.

Okay, what's the deal with skiing nicknames. I know W is PowderHound. What about everyone else? I assume that mine will be somewhat racially motivated. Racist bastards. I find out about vacation time today. Cross your fingers.

Flight is booked. Here's my itinerary:

16 Dec
Delta> Newark (ugh)to SLC to RNO, arriving 10:50pm

21 Dec
Depart Reno at 1236hrs

So, I'm getting in a day before Weiss. I can take the shuttle down to the pad (I'll be getting in pretty late). This way I get one extra day of boozing and nickname-acquiring before having to return to my workaday life.
