It seems only fitting my three-week hiatus end on the day of a blizzard, when I am trapped inside. Yesterday I drank Poinsettias – basically a mimosa, but with cranberry juice instead of OJ—to get threw the blizzard. I holed up with my cousin drinking and playing an amazing crazy cat lady game I got for Christmas (Should take that as a sign?) Last night we had the best blizzard meal—FONDUE, also just one of my favorite meals in general, next to Mac n’cheese and buffalo chicken.
We woke up this morning to the frightening prospect of having to do something other than watch sitcoms, with the internet and cable out. Just the other day Jen and I started fighting when we didn’t have the next season of 30 Rock on the queue.
We decided to divert ourselves with a walk to survey the damage after finding out that there was severe flooding and fires in town. I couldnt embed teh video or slide show, but they are worth a watch. Luckily we didn’t have the fires where we are. We also couldn’t watch the news to figure out what was going on or watch silly field anchor people get blown away. Don’t worry I brought my flip cam, I’ll put the NEWS BREAKING FOOTAGE together later on today. Needless to say the whipping snow felt like little blades but the beach look amazing – in a violent storm kind of way. Then my sister and I carried a very large piece of driftwood home for mum, who seems to really like driftwood and all things ocean. We figured out it was about .8 miles, but hey LETS ROUND UP because my arms are sore and call it a mile. To tide you over till you get to watch my video I googled ‘cats AND blizzard’ and found this. My cats should feel lucky I don’t make them prance around in the snow for the sake of entertainment….yet.
