Dear Think Geek...

I call BS on your little "spill-proof" bowl.

Snowpocalypse Pics

As temps soar in the 60's starting early next week (and all of my firewood sits lonely on the deck), I thought it would be the perfect time to relive the 33 collective inches of snow from the past few weeks...
The snow is baby-high!

View from the front door. Our poor shrubs are toast.

View from the kitchen window.

And even though I'm happy not to be home-bound for days on end and am really looking forward to spring, it was fun for awhile. Laurie got to even come and stay with us and the kids for the last week. I am really looking forward to summer though...

Congratulations M and Lewis!!

M returned from Nigeria and her boyfriend proposed at the airport! He held up this photo collage (it's hard to see, but it says "Will you marry me?"). Should John and I be given props for introducing them to each other? I think so... ;-)

Then to commemorate the event, Lewis pierced M's tongue with a 3 foot icicle. Thankfully, he was on his cell with a professional. Good job, Lewis!

(More pics of Snowpocalypse coming soon!)

Because my "Facebook Status" only gives me 420 characters...

Dear Snow,

You know I love you, right? After all, you have gotten me out of school numerous times (including that week and a half during my senior year over my birthday.. that was awesome). You came and closed Massaponax High School many times over the years so I could catch up on my grading and sleep in (with no make-up days that I can remember) which I appreciated. I am always glad to see you, even when you piss off everyone else. You even came to me in Shizuoka, to a place that almost never drops below freezing, to make me happy. Some people may hate it when you come on strong, but not me. I have always stood up for you.

But now hear this- My best friend of 20 years is leaving Virginia and may not be coming back, all because you have to drop another 2 feet on us tomorrow. I have no idea when I will see her again. All because of you. Therefore, you are now on my shit list.


P.S. You can tell your friend Winter to go screw himself, too. I always liked Summer better anyway.
