Making a Mountain out of a Molehill

Parkposter
For the 3 people who read my steaming pile of blogginess, you’ve noticed a drop-off lately.  While I am sure that apologizing for not posting is not only the first cardinal sin of blogging, I am doubly sure that it veignly implies that anyone actually gives a crap in the first place…

At any rate, the title is commensurate with my indignant yet sincerly apologetic prose; I am making a mountain out of a molehill.  Specifically, I am busy getting ready to climb one.   A mountain, that is.

In January, thanks to the kind and mid-life-crisis-driven-niceites of my friend Craig Samuel, a group of 5 of us are climbing/hiking both Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.  I have to tell you that despite the fear of suffering a high altitude cerebral edema (Kili is ~19,000 feet high) I am psyched.

Besides working 16+ hours a day at this point, I’m also walking to/from work and everywhere else I can in order to prepare for the jaunt up one of the world’s legenday seven summits.

So, there it is…the reason for my laziness.

    I'd wondered where you'd gotten off to, but I figured that life had just gotten in the way of blogging. Happens to all of us from time to time. I hope you get some rest once in a while, it wouldn't do to burn out before you even get to Kiliminjaro.
    Besides, who has time to read those small books you call blog posts? :-)

    Glad to see you back with a post. I am in town the 31st and plan on stopping by in the morning. We on for lunch? Will have folks with me as well

    Good luck with your climb, Chris. A spouse of one our employees does a big climb every year. All the best – Mitchell

    I was missing the biting prose as well. Glad to see you are still alive (at least for now, I guess – mountain climbing??).
