gearing up...

I’m super amped about this year’s snow season. I’ve got new boots, bindings and a board already. And I’m going to get the rest of the necessary gear next week!


"Few will have the greatness to bend history; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation ... It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is thus shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."  - Robert F Kennedy

Why I recommend The Dish Bistro to locals

One of the best neighborhood bistros in Denver. Great selection on the menu, and best value on the wine list. I’m surprised this little gem of a place hasn’t had more recognition and reviews. I’ve never been disappointed with the food when I eat here. And the staff are very friendly too!

automatic or manual

As much as I’d like to be a stick shift master. I chose to learn on an automatic first. Less stress!

According to SB, I did pretty darn good my first time around driving.

driver's permit

fish and nut sauce

This combo makes a great summer meal.

fresh steamed cut asparagus.
cooked cous cous with a squeeze of lime and fresh tomatoes

fish with pistachio sauce:
6 to oz of Petrale sole (turbot filet) or mild white fish
a big handful of shelled pistachios nuts
2-3 tablespoons of mayo
large piece of foil wrap
preheated oven to 350 F.

1) Place fish in foil wrap.
2) Grind up pistachio nuts with food processor until fine.
3) Mix ground pistachio with mayo.
4) Spread mayo pistachio on top of fish.
5) Seal the foil.
6) Heat in oven for 10-13 minutes. Fish will be very flaky when done.

best introduction... (rated 5 stars)

by Hans Torwesten

Anyone who has ever been sincerely interested in Hinduism, Vedanta or the general philosophy that has come out of India needs to read this book. Or if you are looking to deepen your practice, this is a wonderful treatise to read and think a lot over. While it is not a primary source, I’d say it is best to start with something like this because it gives a beautiful, comprehensive and lucid overview of the subject. At the same time, this isn’t a summarized superficial stab at this complex subject. It digs deep, and nuances of meaning are brought forth in a pure manner.

skinny jeans

I feel weird making a post on fashion but this whole trend and reaction to skinny jeans has been bugging me.

Skinny jeans are unnecessarily getting a bad name and bad reviews. But I don't think the problem is the skinny, tight fit which I think looks super hot on any woman because it shows off her legs. I think the problem is that most of the skinnys that are coming out are low rise which is just plain dumb. Low waist AND tight skinny just doesn't go together IMHO. They look like shrunken little boy pants and the whole ass crack showing in already tight denim is just ugly. Find a pair of skinny jeans at waist or with a higher waist and you'll be amazed at how comfortable they are and how good they look on you. And I really think it works on a lot of body types, its just a matter of finding the right pair.

Here's to hoping 2007 gets rid of the low rise, ultra low rise looks for good! I just want to be able to wear a pair of pants or denim where my full butt is covered thank you!!
