How did I survive DC "Snowpocalypse 2010"? Pretty good, thank you for asking. I grew up in Minnesota, and spent the next 15 years in Colorado, so I know snow. Last weekend, I curled up in my favorite pair of camouflage-colored footed pyjamas, open up a bottle of Winter Storm Category 5 Ale from Maryland's Clipper City Brewery, and watched several movies in a row. "S. Darko" was awful, but "Extract" and "Duplicity" were quite good.

Yesterday was a snow day, too, but my boss made us all take it as a personal vacation day. Because even though it was snowy in DC, it was a beautifully sunny day in Afghanistan! I managed to get a bunch of stuff done around my house: I assembled IKEA furniture, opened cardboard boxes, and got my life together. This weekend is a special Valentine's Day trip up to New York City to see Master Thor (thornyc ), except Amtrak canceled my train tickets due to snow. I think I'm going to try and take a bus - I wouldn't miss my first Valentine's Day with Master Thor for the world!
