"I want, I want, I want ... but that's crazy"

Pause in midstream of consciousness....

Well, the snow hit. And boy, did it hit! It started about four hours ago, and I have yet to see it actually fall to the ground. As near as I can tell, it's moving directly from left to right. It must be hitting the ground at some point because I can see it down there. Really....this hibernation idea is looking better and better....

Seven hours in, and this snow isn't getting any lighter. On the contrary, it seems to be getting even heavier. I don't think I'll be going anywhere today...
Most of my day was spent working, and the rest has been wandering around online - which actually, is *work* for me, in a way. I write a weekly column about the Internet, so surfing is part of my duty. Besides, lately, the poker rooms at Facebook and the blogs of a few of my friends and other persons of acquaintance are my only contacts with the outside world. Good thing I kick ass at Texas Hold'em. :)
I look forward to the weather clearing, so I can get out some time within the coming weeks though. I never seem to, but I really need to make a point of getting out into the world again. My cave has become a bit too comfortable for my comfort (if ya know what I mean).

Everyone seems to be checking up on me tonight. My son Pooh (17) stopped at a friend's house after school and actually called me to check in....impressive. My son Book (11) called to say hi in case I can't get out to pick him up tomorrow. My mom called me to tell me she was sent home from work early because of the weather. *** even called. It was pretty good. He said again, though, that he couldn't live in Russia. As if I would ever ask him. As if I can't exist anywhere else. "What are you going to do? Move to Canada?" "Ask me after the election." I probably could though - if I ever really believed that I could be the only one for him. That'll never happen though, so it's no place to dwell. I'm on to healthier places. Really. I am. I swear.

What?

:)

I'm getting a little stir crazy.

I'm also missing my friend from across the pond a little bit. Hmm....that particular line of thinking requires further analysis......

Quittin' now....maybe more later.....it's an odd night......
