It's a "dramady" and it's AWESOME! One of my favorite shows! And Dexter's in it!!!
Yes, and unlike Dexter, Six Feet Under wraps up fantastically and has one of the best finales ever.

I'm working from home today as I have a cold (my second in a month!) and I have HGTV on in the background. I know that some of the drama on these shows is staged. But damn, do half these couples even talk to each other before they meet with a realtor? And the inability of some of these to compromise with their spouse...wow. I think being a realtor would be fascinating, but I'd have to head butt some of these people.

I floated the idea of an early funeral with my presence, then no funeral after I'm gone, but Nick was really bothered by that.
So friends are planning to throw a huge party. We're calling it Pity Party 2014 (or Piddy Party, someone wants to channel 50 cent).
I like the idea of the Pity Party 2014.

Is that this week or next week? When you emailed me, I was getting FLOODED. Thanks to FB, WaPo, and caring bridge, I have over 300 pages of emails in my in box.

If you want to email me again at hotmail, I will pay better attention and answer you tonight or tomorrow.

And now that I'm sick, I drink like a Baptist! ;)~

Whoo hooo! I got a new chair!!

I know, I know it's not really a big deal, but as a civil servant, we rarely get anything new so when it happens it can make a person a little giddy.

Is it snowing? They say it's snowing.
I'd love to see snow but gah----so cold.

It is the little things.
I'd be happy with a projector that worked. When I am fired, the headline will read, "Veteran Teacher Pitches Computer Off Roof!"

In semi-related news, the fire folks trolled through looking for things to whine about: apparently, the cute little things I have hanging from the ceiling are a fire code, but attaching them to the wall is not.*blink*

I've often joked that if our windows opened, we would be short a copier or two. A girl can dream though...

And I suspect Toj is right about the sprinklers.

It is snowing! I think it also will snow tomorrow, but it looks like it won't stick in the downtown areas. The northern suburbs and north of there likely will get some snow to stick.

If we get seven inches of snow, I doubt that there'll be more than an inch on the ground at the end of it.
