Elevated: Moderate, plowable snow predicted. Harvey Leonard openly smiles during report. Empty your trunk to make room for milk, eggs and bread. Clear space in refrigerator and head to store for an extra gallon of milk, a spare dozen eggs and a new loaf of bread.
On a happier note, I'm finally back in my own office. Yay! *spazz hands* The repainting ended up being "checking for mold, tearing out drywall, treating for mold, installing new drywall, and repainting". What in theory should've been a couple of days ended up being more than a month.

Sadly, I still have to get up early to find these things out but I can at least theoretically go back to bed. I will probably call into a conference call briefly at 11, and then after that I think I might (*gasp*) take the day off.
Plans for the day:
birdsquirrel feeder outside the living room windows in order to maximize cat torment.
- Grab stack of books and the rest of MacGyver season 1.
- Liberal application of goldschläger or Baileys to mugs of hot chocolate as big as my head.
- A whole lot of nothing.
[Edit: Office closing at 2:15. Half-day off is much better than none at all.]
Heavy snow out here of the good, wet, sticky variety perfect for snowball fights. ("Good" depending entirely on whether you have to shovel the stuff, I guess.) Too bad that here = the office. :-P
It is supposed to get nasty and icy later this afternoon though, so maybe I'll get to go home early where I can restock the
In a weird coincidence, I was just thinking last night on my way to the mailbox that I should run a CD swap with a "soundtrack of your life" theme. I check in at audiography today, and they beat me to the theme. May still do it, of course; anyone potentially interested? (This is not a call for participation quite yet, I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested.)

Unfortunately, my hopes of a snow day have been dashed; since the feds have to work, so do I. Not that I work with the federal government, but it's an easy way to make decisions about weather-related closures. It's not a surprise though, since all the major roads in my area have been clear pretty much all day. It kinda blows, since I could really use another day to not get anything done at home rather than not getting anything done at work.
