Heh.
I actually got tears in my eyes when they upgraded the forecast to "winter storm" and "5 inches of snow." I just want it to be OVER.
Move to Seattle. It's kinda cold right now, but it's still early and will be nice later. Spring is definitely here. Whenever I see you guys talking about snow, I feel so guilty for complaining about the weather here. Sure it rains, a lot, but heavy snow is rare (LAST winter was an aberration).

There is usually some snow here over the winter, but crap like 2011-12 is pretty rare. A couple years ago we had a little flurry of snow for a few days, but nothing bad, except the three car wreck I ALMOST got into because someone slid across the road...fortunately I had just gotten my breaks done, so I was able to stop like 1/2 inch from hitting him...for real, 1/2 inch.

Moroccans do for sure. I think they are a little more reserved and "traditional" (see the mutt's comments about feminism) in other cultures. <shrug> Of course he was born and raised in Casablanca. It's a BIG city (4+million people) and so is vert cosmopolitan. It's not like some little mountain tribe place in Afghanistan or somewhere. I can see a marriage there: ok we're married, go cook dinner. Pfffttt
Traditionally, in Morocco, a "new bride" (I feel way too old to be called a "bride") isn't expected to do anything domestic for the first month. Seriously all of his sisters and his mother were trying to do that for me. I just couldn't take advantage like that, but I could have and no one would have blinked. Although I wouldn't mind them coming here and doing all that stuff at my house NOW...

So true. It's not really a "bride" price. It's a straight up gift, to keep even if there is a divorce. It's just supposed to be a no strings attached gift. He gave me some jewelry too. <shrug>
It makes me almost want to move to Morocco. Almost. I'd LOVE to have someone do all my stuff for a month.

Brand new inlaws, though, I'd be like you.

Yeah, that's Lulu. Gotta love Old Navy, or as we like to call it Cold Gravy.
I whined to Dickie about spending 15ish hours in a car driving to cedar rapids and back to get this dog, but I gotta say she is an excellent puppy and it really felt like she was just waiting for us to come get her.
Is she your puppy or is she the in-laws puppy? Totally drawing a blank. She's adorable!

My newest art, coming soon to the square on the left.
:)

It's my least favorite of the paintings I've done but we had a good time. And it's a tradition to use these for my avatar pic, so....

I'm friends with a bunch of people. I have a "no fighting" rule on my page and everyone has respected it so far.

I wasn't mean to her when we were fb friends. She unfriended me because I'm not a brainless liberal. She can't have people like that in her circle apparently.

This was totally preventable! The gun was kept in a corner?! The parents didn't realize there was still a shell inside?! Irresponsible gun owners make me sick. People this stupid should not be allowed to reproduce.

You sure about that? I don't think I've ever been called a liberal (libertarian, yes - liberal, no).

Ha! There are many reasons I live in FL, snow is one of them.
I remember once I had to do some welding on a roof, was literally laying in slush.

I see that Denver is getting a storm, too. When I lived there we got snow in every month except July. It only lasted a day or two in the spring/summer months and then it would be back to sun. Also got thunderstorms every afternoon.
Move to Jersey! At least the seasons are pretty predictable here :)
No way. THe East Coast seems to be MOther Nature's punching bag!
