2/27/15 10:59 am - This morning

Snow!

Enough snow that when I started out for work at 8:45 or so this morning, the accumulation started playing havoc with my brakes, and was causing me to swerve on the road and, more importantly, was causing other people to swerve on the road, so I said the hell with it, turned around, and slowly drove home. Almost didn't make it up the driveway--we have the steepest drive on the block. I emailed work and said I was working from home, as that drive was Just Not Happening.

An hour later, I got a phone call from the alert line, and they're closing campus at 11. Yay. Near 11, I got another--they're closing down tomorrow as well, until 5PM or so.

So now I'm just hanging on electronically, waiting to shut down until I hear back from the administration as to what we're going to do with the library tomorrow, as we normally close at 8PM--are we going to be open for 3 hours or not?--because I need to update the website.

(the time I spend sitting here is so going on the timesheet.)

I also have to decide how I'm going to mock Toby, who telecommutes to his job in Houston, and who, therefore, never gets a snow day because Houston just about never shuts down (except for the very occasional flood or ice storm).

2/24/15 08:33 pm - State of the telophase

Headache mostly gone. Work tomorrow might actually happen. Current goal: stay awake until 10 PM so as to try to get back on a regular sleep schedule.

We may have 1-2" of snow tomorrow. If that happens it will, of course, paralyze the community. (I lay awake through most of last night, and due to the icy streets it was just about the quietest it has ever been around here--our house backs up onto a reasonably busy street, but nobody drove down it for hours.)

I have a day off work due to an ice storm and I can't even enjoy it because I have a migraine. (I assume due to the change in air pressure overnight.)

On the bright side, my meds have kicked the pain down to mere pressure, instead of pain, so I can at least look at a computer monitor without causing intense pain, on the other hand I am now stoned* and about to fall asleep again.

My current goal in life is to stay upright and dick around on the intartubes until I can't keep my eyes open any longer, then go sleep. I believe this is an achievable goal.

* My current cocktail is a mix of half a promethazine, and hydrocodone. Doesn't always work, especially if I wait too long to take it, but for now it is.

This baby boy giraffe is schooling the rest of his herd in how to disdain you.

Two of my pieces have bids on them in the art show! Minimum bid only, but I slapped a price on them I would not be too sorry to see them go for. And that means I don't have to take them home!

Since someone will ask, it's the horned woman (titled "Spiral Dancer", thank you very much the person who suggested it who I,m not looking up since I,m on finicky hotel wifi) and the "Dream of the Goldfish" piece.
