Whee [30 Dec 2000|03:13pm]
[ mood | content ]

So here we are under a foot of snow already - I tried to drag the webcam over to the window to get a good picture, but the cord won't reach far enough...
Very early this morning (5.30-6am?) I was awakened by lightning and thunder (!) and peeked out from under the shade to find at least three inches already on the ground. We're prepared for the weekend in, though...I've already had my first hot cocoa with big marshmallows, and if things get really hairy out there, we can always tuck into the four mini-bottles of sherry from the inn in S.F...now if only we can rent a DVD of a roaring fireplace...

I love disasters. Not anything terribly serious, but the idea of having to brave a new challenge is kind of romantic...something that forces people to work together. Something to break the routine. I get goosebumpy when the 'Special Report' screen interrupts your regularly scheduled program...and I actually wouldn't mind being stranded at the airport, either. It would be a little adventure.

It's actually nice and warm in here, for once. I think I'll read a book.

I hope you're all having a warm and happy Saturday. :)

Our disaster preparedness did not take into consideration the dire need for champagne for tomorrow (as the booze shops are closed on Sundays). Snow be damned. Michael is the hero of the day - we have three bottles of fizzy happiness in the icebox now. Hooray!

Watching the hard-hitting MSNBC expose on internet pornography...soon, Iron Chef!
