The ups and downs of snow days

I know, a whole month has gone by since I last wrote. What the hell have I been doing in the last month, you ask? That's a very good question. I've been busy. Very, very busy. Doing things.

Great, now you're all caught up on my life...!

This has been a wacky week in terms of weather and working. On Wednesday, we expected an onslaught of snow, so in preparation, all the school districts in and around Seattle closed and everyone was prepared to stay home. But without any sign of snow, I bravely made my way to work. Strangely enough, it didn't snow at all that day. But the next morning we were completely covered. Yay for snow days! I love it. My job lately is such that all of my work is done independently at my desk on a relatively loose time schedule, so I haven't had any big meetings or major deadlines. Which means I have no inclination to rush into work when it's snowy and icy outside! Unfortunately, things will change in January, when several new projects will hit the fan...

And again today, we're covered in ice and snow AND the sun is shining, making the streets around here solid sheets of ice. So technically I'm working from home but as you can see, I'm having a tough time focusing. It's so sunny and white outside, it's beautiful.

My only regret about this whole snowed-in situation is not having full cable. I'm so bored with the limited number of channels we have without basic cable plan. Case in point, I'm watching the Maury Povich show right now: "You got me pregnant at 13! I'll prove you're the dad!" It's a small step above Jerry Springer (which was on yesterday) but it's an extremely low bar to begin with so that doesn't mean much. In case you're wondering, Cedric is NOT the father of Quita's baby, but he did have sex with Quita while he was with Mica. But anyway.

Must focus on work.

Woo-hoo, snow!!
