the grant

every year on martin luther king weekend for the past decade, my boyfriend and a bunch of his friends take this trip up to
the grant, officially known as the 2nd college grant. what happened to the first one, you ask? well...follow the link for the history. it's basically acres upon acres of land up in northeastern new hampshire with some old, rustic cabins. in the winter, it's freezing cold and the only heat source are the woodstoves, the culprits in many a cabin burning to the ground. they all go up there and x-country ski or snowshoe. i went last year, as "the new girlfriend". it was actually kind of fun, albeit cold. but i got to use my new snowshoes, which was awesome. we had zip-together sleeping bags, too.
so i'm on call this weekend (saturday call...ugh) and cannot go this year. of course, this year, for the first time in the grant history, it's supposed to rain. wooops. i think the plan at this point is to get really sloshed on mudslides (made with kahlua, snow and Silk soy milk) and "snowgharitas" (sorry, don't know the ingredients for that one, but assume tequila). i've never been a big drinker, but the mudslides are pretty tasty.
