Wright State is closed until noon -- I'll take it!

*does the "I-didn't-have-to-go-to-French-class" dance*

Now the real question is, do I get dressed, get bundled up, drive all the way out there for ONE class on a Friday afternoon and then come all the way home.... or do I stay here warm and cozy in my pajamas, snuggled by kitties?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ^_^


Oh couch...you are so very comfy.



ETA: [livejournal.com profile] obieggfromhell alerted me that they just closed school for the rest of the day. WE WIN!!!
Oh, how lovely, it's a White Easter.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet! So my Spanish and French class were officially cancelled! ^_^ All I'm going to be missing is Lit.
I'm sitting at home, watching Buffy, thinking about how I should probably do some homework, or maybe just go over to [livejournal.com profile] xoraclex's house to DDR. I look out the window, but she's not home yet. She's late! I sit down to watch more Buffy. Then the doorbell rings. She's home and safe!

I change clothes and go over to her house. Camille and her boyfriend Elliot are upstairs. Carlette's boyfriend Nick arrives shortly. We have ourselves a good old-fashioned snowed-in party. Everything sounds better with good old-fashioned in front of it.

Carlette makes dinner for her and Nick, and she makes me some steamed broccoli! YUM!!! It was delicious. We play a LOT of DDR. We're pretty good.

Then we all decide that we must make a pilgrimmage to the Circle K. But I don't have my coat! I'll just run home and get-- no, wait. Carlette loans me her puffy coat, day cat hat, gloves, and magic scarf. It's cool. The five of us set out in the snowy darkness for an adventure.

Nick can't take it. Halfway there he wants to set up camp and try and reach the summit in the morning. We urge him on, and soon we see it! The lights of the Circle K! They all run around getting foodstuffs, but I don't have my purse. Nick buys me a chocolate marshmallow (my FAV-O-RITE) after I promise to share my liquor cabinet with him.

Purchases made, we start the trek home. Elliot wants to make naked snow angels, but he is brutally rebuffed. This is a theme. We get home and take all our coats and shoes off, and then realize we have to go to my house for liquor. We just put the shoes back on.

I give them the vanilla vodka, cosmo mix, white russians, and Mike's. Get it out of my house!! Carlette mixes cosmos, and I have just a little. Yummy.

We do more DDR, and then we do Karaoke Revolution. Carlette and I are the Pips, and Nick is Gladys Knight! I come in second in the medley round!

Then Carlette insists we watch FLCL, which made no sense. Lain made more sense. Weird. I originally wanted to watch Kuromati High School again, but now it is bed time.

I'm not going to school tomorrow whether they're open or not. But I have to go to work.
I felt like crappola last night and went to sleep at 8pm. I'd stopped at Kroger on my way home from work and picked up some Theraflu. Antihistimines = Pennysleepnow! But I forgot that my Zyrtec-D is also a decongestant, so I kinda double-dosed myself. Oops.

I slept soundly until 2am, when I woke up and fixed myself another dose of Theraflu. I could feel the antihistimine, but I couldn't get all the way to sleep, so I just dozed from about 5am-9am.

I woke up with a mission: I needed a humidifier, and I needed it NOW. My throat and nose were bone dry, the cats are full of static electricity; I've been putting it off too long.

Unfortunately, there was about 2 inches of snow outside, and the roads were not plowed or treated. Blah. I got dressed and ventured out anyway. This was my first time driving the Camry in real snow. It handles so much better than the little manual-drive Mazda! There were several points along the drive where I thought to myself, "Yep, that's where the Mazda would have gotten stuck. That's where it would have been over for me."

I made it to and from Target safely. I wasn't sure which kind of humidifier I was going to buy until I saw it. Yes, I'm willing to admit I may have a problem. It's so cute! ^_^ I also picked up some Airborne.

I came home, ran the humidifier for about an hour, took a dose of Airborne, and I have to admit I'm feeling a lot better. Still a lot of drainage, which is ucky, but much less general malaise. Here's hoping I've fought off whatever I was coming down with.
I hail from the stupidest town in the north:

Cold, snow creates chaos
'No one expected it to be this bad.'

It wasn't even a half an inch, you dumbasses! If you'd just shown a little bit of forethought, there wouldn't have been so many problems!

Some highlights from the article:

"Although about only a tenth of an inch of snow dusted the roads, that was all it took for freezing temperatures to do their worst, meteorologists said.

'Snow-covered, slippery roads and accidents everywhere - all over the county,' said dispatcher Lori Taylor of the Ohio State Highway Patrol. 'How many calls do you think we've had today? Hundreds.'

Although many county roads were pre-treated Wednesday, crews had little time to prepare for such a snowfall, said Chris Petrocy, spokesman for the Butler County Engineer's Office."

SUCH a snowfall. A tenth of an inch.

Cincinnati is teh dumb.
