Homo Cubicalis

In his series on Politics, Aristotle once wrote that "man is an animal that lives best in a polis (city)". This statement was at the heart of Aristotle's belief that humans are, by their very nature, social/political creatures. The Dilbert correlary is that engineers are animals that live in cubicals. Can this be right? Was I meant to spend my days in a 9 x 9 cell of aluminum, cardboard and foam? A group of us just went up to Copper Mountain last Saturday to stomp what was left of this years late-season powder. It was definitely one of the best boarding days I've had. At 11:30am, the base temp was around 43 degrees, and got up near 50 some time after mid-day. Dude, that's beach weather for the mountains this time of year! I actually rode all day in a thermal top and t-shirt that says, "I do all my own stunts". Lunchtime was spent basking in the sun on the outdoor deck, and the view from the summit was enough to make a Catholic nun have an orgasm. Days like that, I keep telling myself I should quit my job and become a safety at some resort. Then I get home, open my mailbox, and get a cruel reminder why I have my job: money. The equation is mucho bills + no dinero = no love.

Not to say I don't thoroughly love my career, but it's definitely not the sexiest of professions. I spend at least a third of my day blinding myself staring at a computer monitor, typing in cryptic languages that only computer programs and other engineers understand. And I don't care what they say, whether it's a TV screen or monitor, it can't be good staring at anything that self-illuminates by way of a LOW-POWER LASER GUN. Doesn't that sound like something Marvin the Martian would shoot you with?! Which brings me to my second correlary of Aristotle's theory: man is an animal that loves to invent crap. We have an insatiable appetite for taking things from God's creation and turning it into something unhealthy for the sake of profit margins and marketing capital. He gave us the electro-magnetic spectrum, and we're slowly killing ourselves with cellphones, tanning booths, microwave ovens, and broadband satellite feeds of pay-per-view softporn and M.A.S.H. reruns. I swear, dude, this can't be right! I have a friend that puts his cell on top of his dash when he drives his Jeep; when his phone goes off, his Jeep's electronic radio/CD player belches out random bursts of noise and static. Now tell me wireless phones aren't frying our brains!

Well, that's it for me! In 10 years, I'm checkin' out and goin' to live off the grid. Wanna find me? I'll be living in Bahrain on the Arabic Sea coast, giving overpriced jetski lessons to upperclass Indian tourists. Maybe I'll find a pretty Arab girl that doesn't speak English and knows how to snorkel; have a bunch of kids with dredlocks and just go straight Rasta. In fact, I'm starting by going over the wall tonight! Go out, get a couple drinks, play some pool, and try eating something that actually doesn't have preparation instructions starting with "CUT SLIT IN FILM TO VENT BEFORE PLACING IN MICROWAVE." Man is an animal living on a steady diet of high-tech gadgets, PowerPoint slides, and Hot Pockets.

Wow-- wow--- wow---

Love it... was hard to find on the blog list... Very deep.. Really like your style of writing and it is very intense... maybe you should be a editorial writer (obviously not for tech mags or something)..

You know, you can get a job for ski patrol, etc. at one of the ski areas (or a host) and if you work a certain amount of days a year you do get a free ski pass.. People who I know who do this LOVE IT!

Love to hear your dreams in 10 years.. Sounds great..

Sweetie

Thanks, Sweetie. I can truly say you're my first friend on AdultFriendFinder, and I appreciate you viewing my first post. One of my coworkers is going through clinic now to become an instructor at Loveland, and she suggested I do the same. Maybe in a couple years, I'll be giving you a free lesson.
