Given that it has been in the upper 60’s lately around Denver, there hasn’t been much need for the Winter garb. I am going to complain about the sunny days, although they are getting shorter thanks to falling back an hour. It was actually kind of funny to see the world react to this change via social networking. Hashtags about the ludicrousness of the time shift, angry status updates, and WTF email forwards we abound, as well as some radio DJs ranting and raving about it. Me? I could care less, really. Let the clocks do as they may. I wake up, work, go home, sleep, and do it all over again until the weekend comes. Then it’s party time, aka, get the hell out of the city for a few.
Although it has been hot and mild in town, the mountains have already seen their fair share of snow and dropping temperatures. It’s perfect Penfield weather is what it is. And honestly, I wouldn’t have thought about the brand today if it had not been for a friend of mine reminding me just how choice their F/W 09 line is. As I’ve mused before, I am not a fan of wearing the same gear I hit the slopes in that night when I wreck Breckenridge. It stems mainly from how goofy the townies look in their “shredder” gear. Seriously, mate, the goggles-around-your-neck-look is just plain ridiculous at 10pm in a tequila bar. Yeah, I don’t care if they go with your all-over print hoodie fleece, and, wait a second, are you still wearing your snowboard pants? Alright. I’m outta here. Like Doug. Me and my bow tie. Goodnight.
