Ode to Snow

Virginia drivers are, by definition, maniacal, but dump half a foot of snow on the ground, and they calm the fuck down. Thank goodness.

However, I had a miserable drive to work today. I got stuck behind a caravan of scaredy-cats on Edsall Road (I’m a Pennsylvania native — I need two more feet of snow and a sheet of ice before I panic), and the right-hand lane was completely empty, so I started to speed over. But, there was some ASSHOLE who was sitting in my BLIND SPOT as my caravan traveled its whopping 15 mph, and I almost killed us both. I was furious. I stayed where I was, and he dropped back a few yards, but I just made a fast left onto Yoakum Parkway when I had the chance, and I got the hell away from that herd-o-cattle. Argh.

On the bright side, Virginia snow is so much purer and cleaner than Pittsburgh snow. It was nice to clean white snow off the car instead of gray. 🙂

In better news, Shan and I are up to something. I am not going to give any more details than that at this time, but by the end of this year, I think we will have really accomplished a major career milestone. Stay tuned, ’cause we’re going to turn the world on its ass … a little sooner than we’d believed. … 🙂

One thing I CAN say, though, is that my tree is up and decorated!!! I even have my little fiber-optic tree in my office, so I’m heading toward getting out of my grinchy mood. Photos are coming soon!

Well, I have exactly eight bucks to my name, but it’s a Bennigan’s night, I can safely say. Hopefully Renee will give us our usual deep discount, because some drinky-drinky is absolutely in order. 🙂
