The snow started falling yesterday and my commute home took almost two hours. And, wouldn't you know it, my favorite Beyonce song comes on the radio while I'm driving home, and I, of course, start busting out my white girl dance moves while driving. Whelp, at that same time, my car started sliding left and right on I70 like it was shaking its own money-maker! I stopped dancing, took control of my car and finally got home (where I promptly made myself a cocktail!).

So, at 6am this morning I'm out of bed looking out the windows and firing on my laptop. The snow outside is stacked up HIGH and my Channel 13 newscasters are working their tails off trying to count snowplows on the road and watching buses make precarious right hand turns. Work email has nothing about the office being closed. Call my voicemail, and find out that the office IS open. WHAT???

It's now 11am, I'm showered, in my pjs and on my couch. And, I think I can finally see the snow plows in the parking lot. It's about time!!!

I'll be working from home today. No use in risking my Honda and my sanity on the roads when I can easily do email from the comfort of my own home. My poor boss has received so many texts from me today, I'm surprised she hasn't turned her phone off. But, I have the go ahead to work from home, and that's what I plan on doing! (Well, that and possibly cleaning the apt...)

Ahhh, the joys of an unexpected day at home! Now, I just need to figure out if the Roller Skating party is in my future this evening....

Random Thoughts

1. I love The Office. I giggle the entire time. And, I love watching the reruns. Even if I've seen a certain episode many, many times - I still giggle.
2. My friend Jen is one of my most favorite people. And, I'm so glad she has such an awesome man in her life. She deserves it!
3. Today, I found my picture on the back of every bathroom stall at work. It wasn't done in jest, but as a way to encourage people to participate in an office wide program. While I like being an office "cheerleader" and will continue to be a good sport, I don't like that people are looking at me while they are going pee. Weird!
4. I LOVE Scotty's Brewhouse. I went to the downtown location for the first time tonight and ran into a bunch of fun, fun people. I always do at Scotty's - should have known I would at the new location. Can't wait to go there tomorrow night for DAW!
5. My friend, BR, has the best accent in the entire world. He has a really, really deep voice and a very strong southern accent. It is one of the cutest things I have ever heard. :)
6. I have a three day weekend ahead of me. I'm trying to think of things to do to kill the time: sleep, shop, clean, bake, gym. Anyone want to go watch movies with me????
7. I saw some really bad engagement pictures online the other day. It made me start planning what I would not do in my engagement pictures. I'm getting ahead of myself - I know this. But really - you should have seen these. Awful.
8. New guilty pleasure? Cheap manicures. I got a mani for $12 yesterday! Who knew that if I went to a different side of town, manicures would be half the price of what I normally pay on the Northside???

We're gonna get political, political!

Okay, from the right to the left..... My 82 year old grandma, who loves garage sales and loves her grandkids, made this for my little sister for Christmas. Her own Barak Obama doll. So wrong, yet so perfect.

Crazy Conservatives

I watch the Today show when I get ready each morning. It's my way of staying up on current events while applying the proper eye makeup each morning. Also, I have a crush on Matt Lauer...

Either way, Anne Coulter was on this morning to talk about her new book, but she also spent a good time whining about how she got cut from the show on Tuesday and was replaced by Tony Blair. I mean, lots of whining! I came to this conclusion:

Anne Coulter is one crazy ass bitch. And, I'm not reading her book.
