updates

i have the week off. i am unsure what to do with myself when not working. i do a lot of wandering and judging of my house. it does not meet, much less exceed expectations.
you can judge it yourself when the first issue of high gloss comes out in a few weeks, because the meares compound will be on display.

we had 8 inches of snow.

i made brownies w/ peppermint sprinkles. i enjoyed crushing up the peppermint b/c i was mad at the post office and was able to channel my hatred into the pounding with a green bean can.

i might stroke out

if it gets much colder here. we're having an unseasonable cold snap here in NC - yesterday it sleeted and snowed and icked all day. the ground is frozen and crunchy when you walk on it. it's like the tundra, it hasn't been above 34 in days.

i called a resort in jamaica yesterday to see if they had an availability the week after christmas -- not because we can afford it, or have time, but really just so i could hear the woman's jamaican accent on the phone and know that there's warm weather out there somewhere.

then i did some imaginary packing.

btw, there was no room at the inn.  this donkey is going to stay in the shed in raleigh =(
