Say It. I Dare You.

After we moved to CT I was absolutely shocked at the tizzy the news people would get themselves into when there was talk of snow. I always thought that in places where it has snowed for THAT darn long that it was old hat for them, but apparently drama lives!

It does not help matters. They react this way over every skiff and then some people don't believe them when a real snow comes.

The ninnies even closed school today because of a chance of snow tonight. Call it like it is. We have gotten over a foot of rain already. Close school due to mud slide chances and flooding.

When I was a kid in PA, we had to get massive amounts of snow for them to cancel school. And the snow had to actually exist, lol. (And we walked to school barefoot...in the snow...uphill...both ways)

Same here. School board members used to get out and ride the roads. School was not canceled unless it was on the ground. The only exception was for kids who lived in an extremely high elevation. People would keep watch and as soon as it started snowing there, they got to go home. The rest would not be excused until flakes started falling at the school. No one had a problem with that.

Haha with the walk to school backwards. I did hear that from my parents. Barefoot! Holding ropes! I understand wanting to get your kids home, before it gets bad, especially with the crazy mountain roads here. 2 inches can stop people from getting around, in some locations, but lets at least make sure it's actually snowing.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I like that my department listens to its students. I went in yesterday to talk about a clash between two courses that I wanted to do and instead of telling me to find another course they worked it out so that there was no clash. That's actually pretty damn cool, and I mean, these are electives.

I wish I could send a note to someone to express how awesome that is.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Stay strong, guys.

You know what I want?

I want someone who is going to watch me dance the funky chicken in my underwear and think I'm cute.

Someone who is going to let me sing off key and sing off key with me too because that's just who we are and what we do.

Someone who is going to be okay with that fact that I can be super affectionate.

Someone who is going to let me be my nerdy self and whine about how much I don't need a one month break from school because my brain is going to rot from inactivity.


Someone who is going to tease me for mispronouncing words but who understands that its a tic that I have.

Someone who gets my crazy obsession with movies, JGL, Jeremy Renner, Hamlet and San Francisco.

Someone who is a foodie.

Someone who is going to challenge me intellectually.

Someone who will look at me and say, "you are beautiful, nutty and all mine." *That* is what I want.


I also want to sleep right now.

^ I hope you find someone that you can be yourself around, and also challenges you, Kayb.

Ahh, Fifi! Thanks much.

I think it was just my way of "rantingly" (rantishly?)- what are these words- reminding myself not to settle.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

All of a sudden I'm wanting a "hot one" forecast.

They interviewed one woman on my news station who started this weird, high pitch, scream as soon as they said snow. She was flipping out. My first thought was, where do they find people like this (most being toothless as well). My second was, somebody call a medic!!


Springy, you and me both.

One day, heated socks and slippers are going to be a reality, and then I'M GOING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD, because I won't be distracted by chilly toes anymore.

That was almost as good as the drunk man they once interviewed who said, "It's a bleeping shame that man got hit by a car when he was walking. They need to do something so pedestrians won't get hit, too."

While being live-interviewed about the weather, a local resident out here said "derbis" instead of "debris," once.
