Tonight, while I was sitting in class, I fell asleep. It was one of those lovely naps that you jerk awake from so violently that if the instructor was not already aware I was wasting her time she certainly did by the enormous movements I made as I awoke. The rest of the class was a struggle, but I managed to have it be REM free.

I walked out of class to find the most glorious and enormous snowflakes coloring my world gorgeously white. For the past two hours i have been pumped as though I won something.


It’s started.

I stumble through summer wishing I could hibernate at that point of the year and then slowly wake up for fall. But when winter comes…I am a perky little girl who could dance on the bar until close night after night. It’s the snow. It’s especially the mix of snow and colored lights. If I have those two things I cannot see the crappy things in my life. Dog poo, covered in snow, is still a lovely pile of white. You may not get it; like I don’t get my sisters obsession with bird watching. But dang. I am in a good mood. So good in fact, that I am going to blow off some more Spanish homework and make a night of Cape Cods, Mary Tyler Moore Reruns, and making a diagram of where to string the lights in my house for Christmas.

  1. Yay!! We got a little snow on the weekend too but nothing like that yet!

    I also LOVE that you are making a diagram of your indoor christmas lights… it sounds exactly like something I would do. I suddenly feel a little more cozy in my neuroses šŸ™‚

    Luckies! : ((((((
    Just look at all those frowns!

    It NEVER snows here! WHY GOD!? Why do you not bring white powder to the lawn?!

    Supposedly it snows here in Houston every four years, and guess what: It snowed here four years ago!!!!

    Ooooooooohhhhhhh! Aaaaaaahhhhhh! Snnnnoooooooowwwww!

    I will say for the record: while I LOVE the Christmas holidays, it irks me to no end that every year before my pumpkin has even rotted, there are Christmas lights being strung downtown, holiday displays put up in every store window, and Christmas commercials on every tv channel. I feel like before too long, we will be listening to Jingle Bells in July! Ruins the magic of the season for me…
