Snow Day

When you first find out, it's a wonderful feeling. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Then along about the third cup of coffee, it's less exhilarating. WTF should I do now?
1) Surf around on internet. Look up "protean." Try stalking old friends.
2) Tweeze unwanted eyebrow hairs.
3) Start a new crossword.
4) Gnaw on half of a cold hot dog.
5) Reset speed dial in alphabetical order.
6) View Eddy Izzard's Cake or Death routine on YouTube for the hundredth time.
Have a few more laughs and watch a few more of his. See if you can recite them by heart.
7) Consider exercising.
8) Try to remember other words you meant to look up to avoid seeming ignorant in class.
9) Go back for other half of hot dog.
10) Curse scale for its arbitrary sense of superiority.
11) Work on awesome dance moves to Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour." Be careful not to break floor/ceiling underneath. This should count as exercise.
12) Practice scarf tying skills.
13) Count how many items in closet have never been worn. Have a few grapes.
14) Post lengthy observations on various Yahoo group sites.
15) Consider dusting under desk.

My chic and fastidious granddaughter turning two.
I must run, dear reader. I am considering exercise.
A bientot

My list:
1) Skip work to avoid slippery driving (don't feel too bad about it since doing some at home anyway)
2) Catch the showcase showdown on Price Is Right (I like Drew but it's not as good).
3) Catch up on some TV (rest of inauguration procession, rest of Daytona 24 Hour race).
4) Check my favorite blogs (maybe Becky will have a snow day post!).
5) Look up "protean", contemplate my own hot dog supply. Thanks for the cuteness break!

I wish I had someone to have a snowball fight with me, but I don't so I think I'll stay in. I could always have nap instead...

sm, those are great activities!! I would only pass on Price Is Right.

Not that I'm above tuning in, but on this occasion the TV just happened to be on that channel when I flipped it on. It seemed appropriate though, since I associate the Price is Right with staying home from school (back when TV was always live, no fancy recording!). Today a middle-aged woman named Magda won Dr. Dre headphones, a full twin-turntable DJ setup, a glass-and-steel bar, and a trip to Rio. Next stop -- eBay!

You're cracking me up!

Oh, I didn't notice your Izzard link before -- "thank you for flying Church of England!".

"Not a lotta jungle in France... monkeys? Thin on the ground!" ... "Et le singe est... disparu!"

Have you seen the videos using Lego animation of Izzard's routines? They're clever, particularly Death Star Canteen (the stand up version is there too).

(Now my cheeks are hurting from laughing...)

I have noticed them, sm, but haven't watched them. I don't like cartoons.

I could watch EI for days.

Your granddaughter is too sweet! Adorable!!! Snow day ... last year we missed out on the usual one (or two) So hopefully this year we will get one (or two). I'll let you know then what I did! (Loved your list btw.)
