Viking Spongebob

(no subject)

The channel dug through the snowdrifts makes the walls seem like an ice-covered curtain of Þingvellir, but without the majesty and charm. The snow has stopped, but the cold surely as not. It is perhaps perverted to think, as you run errands in 18-degree weather, "Oh, it's warming up." But so the weather remains for the next few days, with possible snow again on Saturday. The weathermen are all gits, if not because their predictions are so wrong but because they smile their plastic smiles at us and make jokes about the misery.

My big sweetie and I went out to O'Charley's for VDay dinner yesterday. We had been going for Thai and wandered far before we decided on O'Charley's. If we weren't so far away, we'd have stopped for my sweetie for a family date (she hates any food east of India), but I only thought of it later. But now she wants to go to O'Charley's for our VDay date on Saturday (she was supposed to be out of town during the holiday itself, so it was postponed from a few weeks ago); fine by me. It eliminates hours of "Where d'ya wanna go?" "I dunno. Where do you want to go?"

But I have roused myself from sloth. At least I have to thank this abysmal weather for that!
