Snow, Beer, and Parties

I’m back from the Paw’s Up Resort in Montana, where I spent half a week for a sales conference in the snow. I know what you’re thinking. Why would you go to where it’s cold during the winter instead of some tropical island? I worried about that every day before I left for the trip, and the whole time until I arrived.

De-icing the plane in Seattle. Apparently the flights before us and after us never made it out.

Dining.

Bison Chili.

By the time we arrived, about half a foot of snow had fallen.

Snow flakes actually look like the crafts we cut from paper!

Our cabin.

Megan Fox stayed here before us, and she built this snowman. It grew a Marge Simpson style hairdo with all the snow.

Hot tub time machine! Really though. Hot tubs are totally awesome in the snow.

White everywhere.

Afternoon activities.

It was only after we asked the staff to get us a snow shovel that we realized there was a sign that said not to build jumps.

Killer icicles.

We even got to throw hatches and knives, while drinking beer!

Another afternoon’s activities.

The snow stopped and the sun came out, but only after 48 hours and over three feet of snow.

Here I am, enjoying a snow bath.

Waiting at the Seattle airport to go home. I just lucked out on the way home too. Planes didn’t get in or out after my flights again.

Saw this when I looked out the window in LA. Ghost plane!

After waking up at 3AM to get home, I was happy to arrive in LA, but there was no rest for the weary. Michelle and I had three engagements to get to that day.

Happy birthday, Delphi! Babies love me because I look like a cartoon.

Next on the list was my cousin’s housewarming. He had a live band and a DJ. What a way to show the neighbors you’re not going to wreck the neighborhood!

Last but not least we headed to Congregation Ale House in Pasadena for a birthday party. It’s been a long time, but after trying so many Montana brews, I could not bring myself to drink a beer. I know, the beer guy couldn’t drink beer. Weird, huh?

It was good to see everyone after being away so long, but I am still recovering. I have seen enough snow to last me a lifetime.

Snow Days

When Wednesday rolls around this week, this will be me.

I will be at a work conference at the Paws Up resort in Greenough, Montana. The vendor that holds this conference every year for its distributors likes to choose very nice destinations, but this is their first winter destination. I am afraid.

As someone, who has lived half a mile from the ocean for pretty much my whole life, I don’t do cold weather. The weather is currently double this here at home, and I’m already cold. Hopefully I don’t freeze.

Big Pimpin’ on the Company’s Gs!

I was mistaken before when I called The Broadmoor a 5-star resort. They’re actually a 5-diamond resort. It shows. You can’t set a plate down without someone coming and scooping it up within thirty seconds. Both double doors are opened when I come and go into a building. I just need the one. They’re always bringing you new drinks and refilling your water. This isn’t some hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant where you could die of thirst during a meal, because “I want water” doesn’t mean anything.

You can get a full membership to their gym, which gives you 20% off all spa treatments. The cost? $60,000 – $80,000. For that price someone better be working out for me. How was your workout Sven? Right on, dude. Hit the showers.

I was super excited to see this when I woke up yesterday morning.

Most people are from places where it snows and were looking at me like I was crazy. “It’s snowing! Oh my god! It’s snow!” This snow hurt a lot coming down when I had to walk in it.

I felt like this was the scene from The Untouchables and someone was going to get whacked in the back of the head with a baseball bat.

Winter Wonderland.

The inside of The Golden Bee Again.

They give you a bee sticker every time you stop in their establishment. My jacket is beginning to look like an army uniform and I a five-bee general.

Would you prefer to eat inside or outside?

This women found an ingenious way to keep her face from getting pummeled by the blizzard. It was either that or her audition for Space Men: The Musical.

This bellhop was asked just to walk with this woman so she wouldn’t slip in heels.

Don’t tell me what to do! I will do whatever I- *slip*

This is way cool. These are the tennis courts, kept inside a huge inflatable dome.

I could get used to this lifestyle. Could someone give me a 6 billion dollar bailout?

Glad I Live in Sunny So Cal

How can you live in places like this? Give me fake people and fake tits any day over this.
