I couldn’t ask for a better way to wrap up my first weekend at home since being away.
I got to go to the gym, I went to Allan and the Puck Nuts’ hockey game at 8 Rinks, I had a sour apple martini, I got to give away some of the gifts I bought from my trip, and had an amazing breakfast and then a winter sports movie.
I haven’t had a chance to go to a “Dinner Club” meal yet, but this time around Bonnie and co. organized Dinner Club to be a Breakfast Club at Tom and Trev’s this morning. We did eggs benedict. It was delicious! There was a whack load of back bacon, bacon, potatoes, tons of toppings, English muffins, homemade Hollandaise sauce (good job Trev!), and Allan and I made strawberry and banana smoothies with vanilla ice cream. Mmmm!
It was definitely filling. And the fire was going with snowboarding flicks on the TV. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start the day!
Then it was off to the new Warren Miller movie, “Children of Winter” over at Queen Elizabeth theatre. We entered all the draws, got our precious Whistler 2-for-1 tickets, and even got some free gear (a Mexican beer polo and LL Cool J’s new CD, lol).
I did get to meet Derek Foose! He’s one of the skiers in the movie and seems like a nice guy (and cute!). His home mountain is Whistler, even though he’s from Alberta. They did a great segment on him on how he went to Iceland on a boat and sailed around and skied some gnarly mountains. It was a great segment and I’m sure it was a grueling but exciting trip.
The movie itself was better than last year, and I was stoked to see Gerry Lopez in it! Gerry is a famous surfer and it was freaking awesome to see him shredding on a snowboard in the film. Good for Gerry!
Be sure to check out the new Warren Miller if you get a chance. Today I couldn’t help but get stoked about the boarding season all over again. There was much talk of snowboarding trips (I think there are 9 trips planned already!) and countless days to be had. Argh, when is it going to SNOW?!!? Now… just to get my hands on the new snowboarding flick That’s It, That’s All……..
The only thing that possibly could have made my night better is if the Canucks had won their games against the Wings tonight, but hey, at least they came out hard for the third period. And Wellwood… man, that kid!
