2008 > 2007...2009 > 2008?

"It's the new year here in the Eastern Time Zone, a.k.a. the real time zone." —Alexa

I love that I was called and "had to be here" for her midnight countdown: "Only Dick Clark gets to do the countdown! Ten...five...two...two...happy new year!"

And now I hope my friend arrives quickly so my cough medicine doesn't knock me out before my midnight (and our frozen pizza feast).

Snow of Doom

Here in Michigan, we're due to get a storm. And of course it isn't just a bit of a snow storm, it's the storm of the century. It's the Snow of Doom. It's the epic amount of snow that will dwarf all snowfalls that have come before it. It's the kind of snow, that according to the local news channels, will make you run in circles screaming "OH MY GAWD WE ALL GON' DIE". Yeah. It's that epic.

The icing on the cake? I'm due to work from 9:30 to 5 at the coffee shop I work at. I plan on bringing a couple of books and the puzzle page from the newspaper because I sincerely expect everyone in their right mind to stay inside as best they can.

I shall report in sometime tomorrow, if only to laugh hysterically as we don't get the 12 inches of snow expected, but really like...a dusting.

I shall cackle I say. Cackle.

I'm Leaving (left and came back) on a Jet Plane

But I came back in a car.

Not one, but two whole weekends ago I went to Chicago for the weekend. And of course it was so cold I could die. Most of the trip was non eventful, hung out with friends, did some shopping, ate food. You know-the usual.

But the highlight of the trip was A)Getting the hell out of Detroit. I loved every second being in a place easily described as "NOT HERE".
And B)I saw Twilight. For free (thank you lara's roommate, jeanette). AND IT WAS HILARIOUS. However, I must admit something. I think if I saw it under different circumstances...nah. Nevermind. I thought I could say I would like it otherwise, but it's just not true. Well, when I say "like" I mean get all like, invested and whatever in the characters. It wasn't the worst movie but the moments I laughed at I most certainly was not supposed to. But I will say this-main vampire boy who is all "I AM INTENSE, SPARKLY, PALE AND HARDCORE" is vaguely attractive. And tall.

I like tall.

The dad in the movie is a lot like mine. Drinking a beer and cleaning his shotgun when said boy shows up to take out his daughter.

EDWARD (vampire boy): NO, I'M OKAY, THANKS.

So there's that. Also, please read the whole parody where I laughed till I cried here.
It's worth every moment.

And with that, I think I'm done. For now. Merry early Christmas?

Mid-December announcement

2008 totally pwned 2007.

I'll have more to say on that in a week or two or three.

Food dilemma

Alexa (5:10:35 PM): I'm hungry?
Me (5:10:46 PM): me too?
Alexa (5:10:49 PM): But we have like, no food?
Me (5:11:01 PM): I had coffee, cereal (CHEERIOS, but generic), and rice + steamed broccoli today
Alexa (5:11:10 PM): I long for Taco Bell?
Me (5:12:29 PM): except, I'm feeling healthy from my earlier food?
