Snow in October

Just another one of those things that makes this place so alien to me sometimes, freaking snow for the past 3 days now. Even the snow is different here than it is in the south, the flakes are bigger, fatter, and...I dunno, Dryer somehow. Snow in the south is always wet. Or at least the air is. The colder air here is completely opposite of what I'm used to, which is a damp cold that seems to seep into your bones and make them ache. This is more a biting, sharp cold. Of course I've heard all the caveat's of my coworkers, "This is Nothing!" and "You haven't seen anything yet!", and I suppose that's true. The lower 30's may not be the coldest to them, but it is pretty much winter temperatures to me. So, Brrr. And also, Yay! I'm totally enjoying it so far, except for the very unpleasant rawness I've gotten inside my nose from the super dry air. It's very distracting.

And speaking of distractions, I'm a TV zombie. I'm juggling Three shows that I not only enjoy but obsess over. Currently I'm being wooed by Lost on Wednesday night, followed immediately by Project Runway, and my Friday nights are all Battlestar Gallactica. You might notice the absence of Smallville. Well, sorry folks. With James Marsters gone, and no possiblility of any more Dr. SoFine, the only reason to watch is the still-fun Clark-Lex homoerotic tension. And even that does not outweigh having to put up with Erica Durance. Just DIE already Lois. I think at this point I prefer Margot Kidder's Lois. (Never Teri Hatcher)

Archive Moment!

One year ago today I was raving about Graffiti!

I was JUST wondering if that snow had hit you guys. You should get you a hot pink snow suit like I had in the 2nd grade and go live it up!! It's so much cooler when it can't soak into your clothes!

i think it's because she's not a wuss AND she kicks ass. her boobs are a little too big for my taste, though.
