Chockstoner anti-quotes from the year that was ...

5:23:13 PM
In a kind of anti-new year resolutions theme, some things were overheard at Buffalo recently.

gfdonc; the day after 10 hours on Where Angels Fear To Tread.
"When you can't tie your shoelaces in the morning, you know you have had a good day climbing the day before."

Coconut; on new year resolutions.
"Getting fit is not a resolution for me, as I have been living that lifestyle for the past 15 years."

IdratherbeclimbingM9; answering a question on aid and motivation at a candlelight group conversation.
"I don't actually enjoy easy (straight-forward) aid."
(Context: It is just a means to get to the good stuff!)
(Heh, heh, heh)

End of Financial year?

Ruby Cumming turned nine today. She's been getting dragged out to the crag ever since her parents became obsessed with climbing about four years ago. She prefers dolls, dressing up and whatever makeup she can find. The other day, at the foot of a climb, she asked her folks if they would ever climb the Totem Pole. Her mum told her that she probably wouldn't but Ruby could one day if she wanted. Ruby responded incredulously "I'm not climbing when I'm older! I'm wearing high heels."

I hope she changes her mind.
