the distance

The distance in question is 13.1. Heck yes, half marathoning it. May 2011.

I'm also thinking this would be awesome, ala Duncan. Lady, come do the one in Minnesota. Or Wisconsin. I hope they take slow people, because I'm slow but I can jump over a fire.

My mail carrier has not been delivering some of my mail, specifically, important letters from my undergrad regarding my loans. So if that's not getting through, what else have I been missing? Way to go, postal service.

I had an epic Cookie Fail last Sunday. They went in like this:

And came out like this:

Don't know what happened... We ate them anyway.

everything is better with corn pt. 2

Everything is better with corn.

So tasty.

There's been a massive blizzard today, biggest in 20 years or so. Minneapolis is going on 17 inches since it started last night.

Twitter and Facebook have been a source of some interesting names for the snowstorm: snOMG, Snowmaggedon, Blizzard People, snowly shit, etc. Nice work, world.

In this picture, there's two cars stuck turning/going down the cross street. People have been walking in the middle of the street since sidewalks haven't been shoveled.

The buses stopped running and they're advising no travel at all. Even the PLOWS haven't been running since there's so much snow. We stayed in today and watched some Buffy (thanks Katie!).

At least we have a good supply of corn.

Andrew not caring about my brilliant revelation.

a bad day

Yesterday I had a bad day at work (can we say interpersonal problems? Not with someone in my organization, but someone outside of it, which can be worse). I came home in a bummed out mood but the day was saved though strategic interventions!

First, DDPP! Dance Party always makes me feel better plus I'm one of those people who releases stress through bodily movement. You should have seen me Wednesday at the gym, annoyed from work and then a CNN interview was on about the Smithsonian censoring art. That made me angry even more and you could tell - my strides per minute went up by 20 or so!

After DDPP, I came home and Andrew made me some hot cocoa - with marshmallows, woot.

Even better - it was in my favorite coffee mug...

Star Wars! Princess Leia would know what to do with conflict-causers at work.

I was so hungry after DDPP that I cooked up some sweet potato fries.

So good! I forgot to flip them halfway through so only one side of the wedge got crispy, but it still tasted good.

Bad day saved by dancing, hot cocoa made by a fine gentleman, and yummy sweet potato fries.
