Apparently we’re getting Snowgeddon tonight, all day tomorrow, and into early Wednesday. They’re saying about 30inches of snow for us by the end of the whole ordeal. While I am glad this means we get out early today, have tomorrow off and probably will have a delayed opening on Wednesday … Wtf mother nature?! That’s a lot of snow. It’s like she saves it all up all winter long and then drops it on us, snickering “Ha-ha!” Sweet molasses I have no idea how we’re going to clean that all up, and where we are going to put it all. The last time we had this much snow, it was impossible to see the road backing out of the driveway … and that’s pretty dangerous.

But yeah … definitely no work tomorrow for us, which means I’ll be up all night playing World of Warcraft. My friend BL, his friend and I did a handful of dungeon runs on Saturday and got our toons leveled to 30, as well as got about 80 achievements for the guild (and gold, from running dungeons). We had fun, so hopefully tonight we can run a few more and get to 40 or 50.

Yesterday, I spent most of the day at the brother’s house. It was my Godmother and uncle’s 43rd wedding anniversary and she wanted to cook for us (I know…their anniversary but they wouldn’t let us cook!) … the food was absolutely amazing. I am still drooling thinking about it. She made turkey, stuffing, candied yams, and her famous bacalao dish (dried and salted cod fish for the non-Portuguese :D)… so delicious.

We did get them a cake, so we had some of that a bit later in the afternoon with espressos (or as we say, Bicas). Hung out, and it was really great. The “kids” (who aren’t kids anymore, but we still call ourselves this) hung out in the basement and watched movies. I saw a film that I can’t yet explain how I feel about. It’s called Stoker. It’s about a young woman whose father dies unexpectedly and out of the blue an uncle she never knew existed shows up and begins living with them. Her mother has basically lost all her marbles and drinks way too much wine in her condition. The movie is this oddly incestual (yeah I make up words) film that is not incestual ….but it gives up these really weird vibes. Basically her uncle is … different (I’ll put it that way) … and she knows there’s something up with him, and so much so she becomes obsessed with him (and he her). It was just a very odd movie, and just …weird (yeah, I know they mean the same thing—see how confused I am!). I still have no idea how I really feel about it, which might mean it is a good movie, but I am not sure yet. It’s classified as Thriller/Mystery, and it is partially but it should also have “wtf is going on in this movie” as a genre.

So yeah, watched that. Then I started to watch Premium Rush, but we decided to head home when I was about halfway, so I didn’t get to finish it. I might check it out later. Got home, and watched Dirty Dancing because I was feeling in an 80s mood… and also got about halfway in a new book I started at the bros. It’s got me hooked so I’ll probably finish it tonight.

So that was my weekend. Oh yeah, class Saturday got cancelled because of a smaller storm we got. So I got out of that :D It was a nice weekend indeed! I am actually thinking of just dropping the communications class. I am just not feeling it. Especially since I sent him three emails with the class list I promised to type of him and he still hasn’t ever responded to me to confirm he got it. For a professor in communications he really sucks at communicating. I’m just so annoyed by this, that I don’t even want to take the class anymore. I have until this weekend to decide, but I’m pretty set on my decision so I might just do it tonight.

And they just confirmed we’re getting out at 3pm today and definitely closed tomorrow. Maybe it will be Snowgeddon!

I’ve lapsed again. I keep meaning to come here and post, but something always draws my attention away—sigh. Here are the meme questions I’ve missed.

January 22 - What season is your favorite, and why? -[personal profile] t_hale_capital 
Definitely autumn (why I choose this username too :D). I love everything Autumn related. The beautiful array of colors as the trees change. Hot apple cider, hot apple fritters, and gingerbread lattes… the smell of crisp air and just the right temperatures (not too hot, not too cold). AND of course … my birthday is in late September :D But mostly it’s the beautiful-ness of autumn that I love the most.

January 23 - If you could travel to any country (without worrying about $$), where would you go and why?
[personal profile] t_hale_capital 
Definitely Egypt. It’s my number one spot to visit if I ever get the chance (and things calm down there making it safe to travel). I’ve always been so fascinated with the history of Egypt, and I’d love to see the pyramids and actually get a chance to go inside one (though I am claustrophobic, so that might be a problem).

January 24 - You travel to any point in your timeline to fix or change something about yourself to make your future better. Where do you go and what do you change?[personal profile] yohjideranged 
I’d go back and NOT date my last ex. I’d give myself a glimpse of all the horrible things that were to come after the ‘honeymoon’ phase of a new relationship. I’d save myself a lot of pain, but I think I’d also not be as pessimistic about relationships as I became after that one. I’d be more open to guys, and not think every word past their lips is a lie to get something out of me … I’d be less closed off and a lot more approachable … but as it stands, I just want nothing to do with men at this point in my life and I blame most of my reasoning for that on him and his emotionally and physical abuse. Yeah … I’d definitely change that in a heartbeat.

January 25 - Can you recommend me some good history books (any era)?[personal profile] yohjideranged 
I was a bit ahead of my class in reading, so I tended to read teenage level when I was around 10-11 years old. I’ll go with Authors/series because I can’t just pick five books hahaha …
Everything by Christopher Pike—I was obsessed with his books. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Pike_%28author%29
Lots of Judy Bloom books in there
Sweet Valley High series
R.L. Stine Blind Date, The Baby Sitter, Hit and Run (just a few)
Cynthia Voigt books
