I know, I know--I've been fairly absent for a long time. I'm not sure what's wrong with me. I still do things and think "this would be a great blog entry" and "I'm so blogging about this" but I never actually make it to my blog. I assure you that I am still alive. For the last few months, I can blame my absence on work. I've been working a lot. In fact, I'm working right now, so I can't blog much, but I wanted to make sure I start posting again.
A few nights ago I decided to take an evening drive. I used to to that all the time, but it's been a while. Life must be going well for me. ;-) Anyway, I was driving around, and headed up to Baldy.
About the time I came out of the tunnels, there was snow on the ground. To all you people who need your snow, this picture was taken just (Edited: I guess I probably shouldn't say where I live...) miles from my house*:
What?!? I am so glad I was wearing my super warm Old Navy Pea Coat! We got out and had a little snow ball fight, tried to read the gangsta tagging in the snow, and then quickly got back into the warm vehicle.
Anyway, did you notice that Aup there on the map? That's about how far up I made it. When we started sliding on the road I insisted the truck be turned around. The driver said we'd just go to the Village and then turn around--not that much further, right? But if you know the area, you'd also know that there is a big hill by the school, and I didn't want to chance sliding down it and not being able to get home.** I know, I'm a baby; but I stopped wearing diapers long ago, and and if we'd gone any further, well, they would have come in handy.
*Which is exactly how it should be--Snow belongs in the mountains, not in my front yard/driveway/commonly used streets.
**Granted, I do know people who live very near that same hill, so we could have paid them a little visit, but I didn't see the need to mention that...
I have tried watching the full episode of Fairly Legal's pilot episode on two different computers, using two different networks, and have encountered problems both times. The feed was slow at best, and only made it to about 5 minutes before giving an error message asking that I check back at a later time. How am I supposed to get attached to your programs when I can't even successfully watch the first episode when I have a few minutes of free time? Please fix this.
