As a wee kid, my parents brought me to Lake Tahoe numerous times. I looked up,took in the mountains. Years later, I skied resorts all around the lake, and have visited the tops of several of the listed peaks with an eye toward visiting more soon. In my eyes, the mountains that rim the south side of the lake, around Emerald Bay in particular, are among the most striking in the world that I've seen.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
