We got sent home at 3pm today due to the blizzard conditions and we are supposed to have a delayed start tomorrow. After driving home I'm really wondering if that will actually happen.

Poor CatNip! I've been cooking like mad for the last three days, getting all the homemade goodie bags ready to give to teachers, after school program staff, CatNip's clients and cow-orkers, etc. Whenever the oven timer went off, he always seemed to do just the wrong thing: take things out when I had set the timer just to check, or turn; leave things in when they needed to come out; turn off the oven when it was preheating for something -- things like that. He was trying to be helpful but just wasn't, mostly.

He just now said, "Wait; is that the oven timer going off?"

"No, I finished all of that yesterday."

"I must be suffering from Post Traumatic Baking Disorder."

Wow...I found out yesterday that a guy that DH used to work with committed suicide. We went to the funeral home to pay our last respects, and were told that his death was still under investigation. Apparently they can't find the girlfriend--she wasn't there, and she had her cell phone disconnected.

I feel so horrible for the family. The kid was only 25. [Frown]

Dang Mrs. Hi-C, that sounds messed up.


So I started working for Blockbuster again while I'm home for Christmas Break. My feet are barking and I'm so tired I can't sleep. I know my feet will get reused to being up on them, but I hurt so bad. Anyone got a painkiller, or at least want to give me a good foot massage?

I have a silly question for you all:

Would you say that you can anthropomorphize gorillas?

I say yes, they are not human so attributing human traits to them would be anthropomorphizing.

My friend says no, they do have some human characteristics, so it's not really anthropomorphizing to attribute emotions and so forth to them.

What do YOU think?

It's not snowing as heavily here, but the wind is still blowing pretty hard and causing a lot of drifting. What is so aggrivating is that the police department has issued a no unnecessary travel advisory but as of this exact moment I'm still supposed to be going in to work at 10 am. I'm not even sure if I can get my vehicle out of the driveway because of the drifts, both in the driveway and in the street.

I've just had a letter from the gym I used to be a member of, trying to persuade me to rejoin in the new year. Overall, I would say it is an exercise in how NOT to do it.

A couple of gems for you:

"At LA Fitness, we really want you to enjoy your body in the New Year. But I notice you've recently cancelled your membership, so now I'm worried you won't be able to."

"So all you have to do now is come into the club and set up an appointment to help you define your new goal and how to achieve it. But hurry (the exercise will be good for you)."

So congratulations to the manager of my local LA Fitness - I've never written a snotty letter in response to circulars before, but you can be damn sure he's getting a rocket for this one. [flame]

Its pouring down rain here today. They're saying the snow is expected on Saturday.

I saw my dad at the grocery store today.

What's that got to do with the rain?

He told me that my mom doesn't go out in the rain because she swears she'll melt.

He was also wearing his red and green "Merry Christmas" baseball cap. He's a goofy old guy, my dad. [Big Grin] I guess that's where I get- I mean, my kids get it from!

It does in my book.

My book also says that carrot cake is good for you because when veggies or fruit are added to any recipe, they cancel out all the calories and fat.

I really like my book, but I have no idea why I'm a bit pudgy.

We're supposed to get rain here, too; probably mixed with a bit of snow, so the roads will be slick.

And I think I will melt in the rain too, because I'm so sweet... (coughcoughcough)
