ice snow slush thunderstorms tornadoes

We're spending an extra day in Iowa due to the large storm front stretching out from, oh about Dallas through Iowa. It's just as well, far as I'm concerned, seeing as I hadn't realized we were leaving today until about twelve hours ago.

I'd like to think that, if nothing else, this will let me progress beyond beginner drums on Guitar Hero. (I also hope that Caleb doesn't magically miss his flight tomorrow afternoon.)

Perhaps, we'll have internet at the apartment again someday. (A post-Christmas miracle?)

We're in Iowa, land of cows and (currently) snow. People keep making comments about the Amish due to my brother's Grizzly Adams beard. My cousin (who resembles Mr. Clean) is playing a paintball video game, despite having pulled out a Guitar Hero guitar to the living room also. My mom is talking about Dirty Jobs (specifically, the snake episode, but I'm sure they'll switch to something else soon). There's talk of staying up all night, just because. I love my family.

I need some hot chocolate.

Even if it's not really sticking anywhere (except the tops of cars), it is SNOWING in HOUSTON, and that necesitates a picture of my feet.

someday I'll actually use weekends to call people again

Any day that starts with David Bowie blasting in your head cannot steer you wrong.

Of course, my stomach waits until right before I'm heading for the bus to tell me how very hungry it is. Thanks.

This past weekend, all Muppet-tastic that is was, makes me want to carve things in styrofoam like back in college.

I don't know why I have so many dreams about being on dance competition shows.

Some things are just too ridiculous...which is why I should call people.

(especially after a week of online calendar mishaps, talk of understudies, and general scheduling crazines)

I didn't expect the "call me back" message from my boss to be about a cat carrier, but I'm very happy to tell him I don't have it.
