The Snuggie vs. Slanket vs. Freedom Blanket vs. Blankoat

Answering the question Americans really care about!!

Merry Christmas Eve!

I'm in Texas now for Christmas now, of course. Yesterday was literally 74 degrees. And today it's snowing and they're saying it'll be 1 - 3 inches. I don't even know how that's possible! This is a crazy town. And you know what? I'll take a 70 degree Christmas over a white Christmas, thankyouverymuch. Not that I have a choice now, but still. It was nice while it lasted.

Snow day!

Well I survived the thundersnow. They closed parts of the metro, so it was only running in the sections where there are no outdoor stations, so thank goodness I moved from Pentagon City because otherwise I would have been basically stranded. It's a good thing I went to Alaska 2L year because I busted out my Alaska coat and my Alaska boots so I was actually ok. Jeff and I went down to the mall and made a dancing snowwoman (and yes, she looks weird, but the snow was so powdery it was really hard to pack it, so be nice!).

It was really cool down there though, it was like 10pm and totally silent, there was pretty much nobody out there, which never happens. Look how cool!

This is the escalator into one of the metro stations, cracked me up:

It was fun playing in the snow and all, but seriously, I'd be fine if it would be 70 degrees here tomorrow. I don't really need more than a day or two of winter. I think that's about all the exposure to cold that God intended for us.

Um...

Apparently we might get 10 to 20 inches of snow tomorrow. I don't even know what to do with that! Do I have to buy canned goods or candles or something? Is the power going to go out? When will all that snow melt? Will I be able to fly to Texas on Monday? So many questions!!

Validated by television

I just watched Jeopardy for the first time in I think years. And I totally still rock that show. Just in case you were wondering.

Today's the day!

Today is my first trial!!  Which is why I'm at work before 7am, sigh.  But I feel like a real lawyer for once!  And as soon as these weeks of madness are over, hopefully I can get back to posting.  I've got some stuff I've been meaning to talk about for a while, including:
 
*My friend Laura giving up vegetarianism after 15 years and LOVING poultry.
*How Washington DC is going to make all stores charge for plastic bags, so I'm torn between my hatred for paying for things that should be free and my hatred for being required to save the environment.
*How the last episode of Castle I watched had Riley from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Shawn from Boy Meets World, Cutthroat Bitch from House, AND Chloe's husband from 24.
*How people keep telling me I look like Rachel from Glee (well, the last guy said I looked like a prettier version, so I'm going to go with that).

Good thing they did this episode

Poor Grizz!  30 Rock needs to bring back the kidney song, for reals this time.

The whining continues

I'm still at work, it's raining and I don't have an umbrella.  Day keeps getting better.

Pain

I'm still at work.  I am not cut out for this business. 

Ick

This is my first experience being back at work less than eight hours after leaving. I do not approve!

My computer totally died, as I mentioned before. My dad couldn't save anything, he had to build me a new hard drive. The last time I backed up my computer was December 2007 so if anyone has any pictures that involve me between then and now, please send them to me! This is one reason that I haven't posted in a long time.
