flamingo snow

let's fast forward to Spring

Boo weather. It's grey and cold and wet outside, and yesterday it was ice. I was fine on the roads, actually, but as soon as I got out of the car was when danger set in. Particularly treacherous were my front steps. I basically pulled myself up to the porch with the railing. Then I shuffled across the porch slowly and grabbed onto the doorknob to keep from falling. Awesome.

The cold meant that Sharif's car didn't start, so I didn't get to see him last night. And I was really looking forward to hanging out with Rohini, but the ice prevented that. Very sad. And this week is already long even though it's not yet halfway over.

At least I know that I'll see the boyfriend tomorrow, what with Valentine's Day. And it's a three-day weekend approaching. Maybe our rented copy of Endless Ocean will have arrived by then, and I can swim around with sea creatures while Sharif's at work.

And, of course, there are other, GOODER things going on. Congratulations, for example, to Rohini and Will, who are great, and are now engaged. I hope to be happy with you in person soon! It's a shame that I'm going to have to miss the wedding because I'll be playing Spore, but some things just can't be helped.

Dammit, I should have put something in the slow cooker before I left the house this morning! That would have been a perfect idea.
