Waiting for the coffee to finish brewing and will be happy to stay indoors until I go down to volunteer at the co-op tonight... will need the AWD bicycle to get me there as we have what looks like 6 inches of fresh snow with 5 inches of that coming down since this morning. The roads are a mess and people have lost their minds... despite that there is no such thing as a snow day here.



Was so tempting to toss her in a snowbank but then I might not be able to find her...

I guess I'm a binge shopper. I haven't bought work clothes in quite some time and was finally fed up about having to iron shirts that were also ill-fitting. Ordered 9 shirts and a pair of pants last night. A quick google search got me a 20% off discount on top of the sale price and another $30 in gift certificates, so not a bad haul.

You should pull something George Costanza-esque when you leave.

Now I am wide awake with another 3 hours before sunrise.
This must be my forth posting on this site!!

a) Foo posts don't count toward your post count.

b) It's boring enough in Africa at 0400 that you come to Foo? Awesome.

I think the girl sitting next to me at the brewery is insane.

She keeps clapping every time "her" team scores...even though they can't hear her through the TV.

Did I just see four frag Queens and an Elvis impersonator jump on the dance floor of the Elks Lodge in rural Colorado? Yes...yes I did.

That is just crazy talk. That kind of aberrant behavior would get you kilt in the hunting season.
