I'm digging it.

hahahahahaha...whoo boy. The jokes just don't stop around here.

My favorite part of a snow day is when the snow plow comes down my street and puts a a two foot snow drift at the end of the driveway--the driveway I just shovelled.

Good times.

I hear we're supposed to get more tonight in addition to painful subzero wind chill factors.

As I was scooping out the artic shelf at the end of my driveway, I noticed that my neighbor hadn't touched his yet.

Normally this particular neighbor has his shit down to the pavement before I've finished my first cup of coffee.

He's well past retirement age, but in fantastic shape. I see him riding his bike all over the neighborhood all the time and once in the pouring rain. He may be old, but I guarantee he's no slouch.

What does he know that I don't?

I'm not touching the driveway until tomorrow even if the wind fucks up all my hard work. I don't plan on going anywhere until I absolutely have to.

I'm off to go make the requisite snow day hot chocolate and get a fire going in the fireplace.

did you check his house to be sure he isn't dead?

Woooo hoooo! Snow day! Break out the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, the beer, and the DVD's!

Wait a minute, you have children. Doesn't matter if they are too young, it's never the wrong time to teach them life's little lessons about hard work and shoveling snow!

I'm having one of those days today. Sigh. The inmates are running the asylum at this point in the day and it's way to freakin' cold outside to ship them out to the yard. I just might have to spike my hot chocolate so as not to end up on the evening news.

Yay, snow day. Makes me almost regret that it's 70 degrees here and I'm about to go outside to play in the yard.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
