first, the picture has little/nothing to do w/ Sundance, but it is fabulous in its own horrible way . . .
moving on then, . . . sorry to steal Kimora Lee Simmons' term, but hey, this is truly fab, "this" being that we moved up to Sundance today. we are staying at River Run (so, the loving administrators heard our pleas to keep us out of the creepy cabin!). it's so lovely here. i'll upload pictures tomorrow (but an earlier post does show some december Sundance images that are quite nice).
Mike and i just returned from dinner at The Foundry Grill. there were a bunch of Sundance Institute people there, including advisor/novelist/all-around-cool-guy, Walter Mosley. he gave us wine last year during the festival (which we certainly did not drink on shift), so we love him :)
Mike and i usually do a "calm before the storm" dinner, so tonight was it. we had steak (he, the ribeye, i the petit -- and mind-blowingly-delicious -- filet). some champagne from St. Domain Michelle (it's actually a simple sparkling white, but it's lovely), and a Syrah i can't recall the name of but am still enjoying a delightful buzz from ;)
The Foundry had been slipping in our opinion, but, now . . . they are fully redeemed.
it's freezing beyond belief. walking along, my thighs feel as though the blood flowing through them is seizing up, slowing down, f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g.
so -- and here is something truly enchanting -- i will now go to use the STEAM SAUNA in the bathroom. oh yes.
we are very happy.
