"With a voice beyond imitation -- a falsetto so shrill it could pierce even the din of a touchdown celebration -- Cope was a man of many words, some not in any dictionary."
And though Twin Peaks probably didn't know this when she suggested my hash name, Cope was the one who began calling cleveland the brownies.
Just doing my part to piss off the ladies...

This is the description on harrier.net:
This epic hash was established in 1988 under the less-than-capable direction of Stump F'ker. Despite his best efforts, this hash survives. It is not part of the Denver Hash! It has its own officers, philosophy, and tradition. Leap Year runs are like a porno – long, hard, and uncut. Frozen beer checks, cold wind, snow, and foot-numbing water crossings are some of the features that make a Leap Year hash great. It also makes the hounds grateful that Leap Year only comes around every 4 years. So get thee to the Leap Year HHH and celebrate 6 years of leaping!
Might try to get up to Denver on Sunday after the Pueblo 10 miler. Three hashes in three days, on top of hitting the Irish Snug Pub run in Denver on Thursday. Woohoo!

Jes, sorry I missed your call, I was out at the Garden and didn't have my phone. Good to hear your voice, it dawned on me while listening to your message that I hadn't talked to you in about two years. I wouldn't even have recoginzed your voice had you not said who you were! Sheesh.

Oh yeah, this is also the same weekend as the Colorado Brewer's Festival in Fart Collins. A plan is in the works to do the Slacker and then head up north to partake in the festivities. Thanks to Free Bu(s)ch for already volunteering to put us up! Hopefully the FCH3 will do something for this...

Also gonna hit the Garden for some bouldering around 5PM that day if anyone wants to join me.
11:45AM - 45 minutes of climbing, including the usual 101 push-ups, 101 crunches, and 30 pull-ups
5:30PM - 4 x 800 meters with 400 meters recovery
6:30PM - 75 minutes pumping iron at the Y
Yeah, that sounds like Lulu's workout schedule for an entire week, but it was just a Tuesday for me. Making up for it now by gorging on pierogies and Pabst while watching Animal House.

Boobs, Katie, Melissa, and I are gonna hit the show after visiting a few of the finer establishments along Colfax avenue. Pre-concert burgers and Pabst at the Cherry Cricket, mmmm....
Tomorrow Melissa and I are heading up to Boulder for a long run on the Mesa trail. After that it's time to finally visit the Boulder Flatlanders hash, the only Colorado kennel I haven't hashed with.
Coming back Saturday evening to hang out in Manitou. Sunday morning it's fun with the Incline Club. Sunday afternoon I wanna do some outdoor bouldering, either gonna hit Garden of the Gods or, more likely, head up to Morrison. The Morrison trip would allow me to hit the Denver hash as well, which sounds like it'll be exploring the area around my favorite concert venue, Red Rocks Amphitheater.
And, of course, no better place to end the weekend than the acid jazz jam at the Ancient Mariner!

And can someone tell me why he is testifying before congress? Doesn't congress have more important things to do? We're a nation at war and congress is worrying about whether some fat guy took steroids a decade ago? Sheesh...

The guide we had for the trip was pretty inspiring. He had quit his normal job over two years before, and started living out of his van just so he could climb every day. He was a guide at Hueco during the winter months, and during the summer months (when the heat gets unbearable in El Paso) he drives his house/van to northern California where he's a cook for some kind of outdoor lodge. Sometimes I wish I had the guts to do something like that. He told me he gets $5 for every person he guides in the park, so on this day he made $20 for eight hours of "work." Though the owner of the tour group also gives him food and a place to park.

"Sunday, the police report says Feb. 3, officers were dispatched to a bar in the 900 block of Manitou Avenue at 10:17 p.m. due to a fight. The number of people involved prompted officers to seek the assistance of the Colorado Springs Police Department. One person was arrested for failing to comply with an officer's order to leave the area."

To celebrate the half century mark, I went to purple castle today. For some reason I had to get that sticker (I didn't make it last time I was in) and ate so much I felt like I was gonna throw up for the next two hours. The sticker was mine though!

-Rep Larry Liston (State Rep, Colorado Springs)
Liston is gonna get hemmed up in the press for calling pregnant teens "sluts," but it was nice to see someone address the problem. Colorado has serious issues with this, hopefully the comments push folks to start coming up with a solution. I e-mailed Liston the Kimchi solution (always cum in the girl's face) but he has yet to get back to me...

Think I'm gonna coordinate with our P2H4 friends and make this one an annual event. Hopefully it won't fall on Snowdown weekend in the future, though the only difference between the two events was the lack of a $69 rego for mardi gras.
Also, might have yet another Manitou weekend for the annual coffin races! This year's race will be held on October 25...
