It's been snowing all day. Lots and lots of snow on the ground.
For the last ten weeks I've had a class (for work) to attend on Wednesdays which meant leaving work at Noon or 12:30 and heading to class from 1-4pm. And 'cuz I made a deal with my boss, I didn't have to return to work after class (even though my workplace is on my way home from where the class is held, even though normally I work 'til 6pm).
So today I drove to work in the snow, then to class in the snow, then home in the snow. Normally I've been going to movies after class, but today I'm home and trying to clean up the apartment.
Which is, of course, why I'm typing this scintillating entry . . . to avoid cleaning up the apartment. But if you could see my office/guest room where I am now, you'd know I really *need* to clean the apartment. This is the room that is Stuffed Full of Stuff that I need to sort or get rid of or find room for elsewhere.
It sounds like it's just gonna keep snowing and snowing, maybe all day tomorrow, too. Yikes. It's pretty to look at, but not fun to drive in. I want a snow day, darnit.
And I want to curl up with a book or watch a DVD, maybe light a fire in the fireplace, too.
But instead I'm about to crank up my CD player in the living room and try to clean the kitchen and living room and maybe get some CDs and videotapes out of boxes on the floor and into new racks. Well, once I make some room for the racks in the hallway.
Oh the life of a pop culture obsessed geek . . . it means lots of sorting and schlepping and trying to find space for tapes and CDs and books (and action figures. Um). And a constant search for good shelves.
The snow was on my mind yesterday as well. I knew that it would take me two hours to drive home, no matter when I left. So the question was, do I want to get home at 4:00 or at 7:00?
Since I had to run some errands before my weekend wargame trip (which I wrote about in the new web journal I started at http://www.livejournal.com/users/jbru [thanks for the pointer!]) I chose 4:00. I think my new boss might be a bit miffed, but he'll get over it.
