There is like three feet of snow out there. When I went to bed at 3:30 AM, I had the driveway totally clear. Now I am snowed in again. Crap.

Bah, the mid-Atlantic is seeing the type of snow us mid-westerners see every year.

Spent the day with M. again. Helped her rehearse with her theater group, then off to a friend's birthday party.

Good times... but she's running me ragged. Totally exhausted.

I'm at my aunt's tomorrow for cousin's b-day party and Superbowl.

I think... I'm pretty partied out right now.

Dude you shouldn't be exhausted, your not even having sex yet. Seriuosly tho, it is worth it. Because the more time you spend together the stronger your relationship is going to be. be grateful you can do this sort of stuff. I have to travel over 150 miles to do ANYTHING with my girlfriend. And that kind of distance does not make a healthy relationship.

I got a curling game in about an hour. Then I am probably going to be sitting at home watching the super-commercial-bowl by myself. Drinking alcoholic drinks and fatty foods

I'm having a good time.

Still... between work and a busy social life, sleep is getting harder and harder to come by.

Shouldn't complain though: a couple of years ago I was just as exhausted with just work and no social life to speak of.

This is better.

Halftime in the superbowl. 'Aints lost their chance being stopped on the 1 yard line. Tho it might be interesting to see the Colts secondary choke in the 2nd half.

My curling game went well. Scored 3 in the first (could have scored 4 if my take out stayed), my team was doing real well, and we stole in the 2nd. I did 2 perfect top house draws to force my opponent to draw for one.. and he missed it. By the time they finally scored in the 5th end my team was up 6 to 1. Commanding and dominating

Spent the day at my aunt's house, celebrating my cousin's 40th birthday.

It was kind of a bittersweet occasion, since he and his wife just separated, and are going through all the motions towards divorce.

Gotta go get my car this morning. Dreading the bill...

Went to work this morning through all the snow, only to find out that the office is closed due to said snow. First time in years. Guess I should have checked my e-mail before leaving. Oh well. I guess I'll just stay - I'll probably get tons done with nobody else around to pester me.

It would be great if we get a snow day this week. Wednesday, preferably... but I'll really take any.

I can use the rest.

Got my car back today. Big bill. Grrr...

And of course, as I pull away from the service center, one of the warning lights comes back on.

****.

With every passing day, I think more and more about taking the plunge and getting a new one.

The new Jettas are nice...

I don't need the debt right now... but really: what's the difference between a couple of thousand every couple of months spread out in car payments... or the same amount (or more) in car repair bills every 4 to 6 months?

I like my car though... We're old friends.

Brutal day at work... again. I think this is my life for the rest of the semester...

Giant Middle-Eastern Music Festival. 40 people on stage... all playing acoustic instruments that were never intended to be mic'ed.

Long day. Very long day.

I got to the words "6 inch..." and had to close my eyes, thinking of the nature of all of K_K's recent posts and imagining the worst.

Waiting for notification that the show is canceled tonight. Unfortunately: the set up for this show is a couple of hours earlier than our normal 4pm... so if the school drags it's feet in making the call, I'll still have to commute all the way in and go through all the motions until word does come down.

Which would suck.

I really don't want to fight traveling both ways though a blizzard for a college concert... especially this particular concert, which is always such a huge pain in my balls every year.

Man, so much MORE snow out there. Working from home today. I have to clear out the driveway, but I frankly don't know where I 'm going to PUT all the snow. It's like Hoth out there, but with less Imperial walkers.
