Hmm, lets see.  The past weekend was pretty good.  AD marathon on Friday and then on Saturday, Tara and I went ice skating on the pond near our apartments.  It was pretty fun.  That evening was trekking up to Fremont and watching the strangest thriller movie ever called Invasion.  It was interesting…  I’ve got lots of good ideas for the Fraternity as president, so hopefully we can do a lot of those.  I was in Dietze music on monday morning trying out one of the Takamine acoustics, and this old guy come in, picks up a guitar and sits down next to me.  “Start on G” he tells me, and then the next thing I know, I’m playing rhythm for him while sings some blues song.  After we finished that one, he’s like “Okay, play a C7–I’ve gotta get this out of my system”, and we play the lime-in-the-coconut song.  It was awesome.  I really wish I had someone to play with regularly.

Here’s the poem you assigned, Jake.

The Beam

He’s perched up on a beam
with his clothes discarded
and no where to hide.

And all the while
clean-cut men
park their SUVs beneath him
and throw up broken bottles of hate
and smooth polished crosses
while mothers shield
their children’s eyes.

Yet he stands tall
and bleeds pure confidence.

Well, last week we ventured out to Breckenridge for some snowboarding fun.  It was pretty incredible.  It snowed just about every day we were out there, so there was always fresh powder.  Tara and Bridget learned to ski for the first time and both did pretty decent.  They graduated from the greens by the beginning of day 2.  The condo was massive because we got upgraded at no cost to a two bedroom with a loft.  Anyway, pics are all on facebook if youre interested.

In other news, I just saw Juno and it was quality.  It was so weird seeing Jason Bateman play a jerk though.  Hmm, what else?…Eh, I got nothing.
