Not California Dreamin' but...


I miss the desert.

Are you happy midwestern winter?! You finally broke me. I want to run outside!

Krissy, this winter is breaking a lot of people! I got into a friend's car this morning, and she said brightly, "Good morning!" I said not-so-brightly, "Stupid snow!!!!" (She totally agreed.)

I had a craptacular outside run yesterday.

So, I have to say that picking up x-country skiing has at least helped to alleviate the midwestern winter blues! And you can get a good workout outside too!

You might be consoled to know that it's been a record cold here. Although your old stompin' grounds of Las Cruces are probably a bit less so. So, when are you moving back, oh ye who misses the desert?

Oh, wait - I just looked at the temperature thingy on your sidebar. 2 degrees. That's just--unholy. I went to college in South Dakota. Trust me, you will be warm again. And humid. And buzzing with gnats and mosquitos.

Outside? Oh, you mean the Arctic TUNDRA that is Iowa? WTF? This is seriously insane. I can't even get my car out because it's surrounded by packed snow that has turned into a 4 inch solid sheet of ice. I almost fell a gazillian times this morning walking downtown. THIS MUST END!!!! But have you seen the forecast? Like another foot of snow before tomorrow?

AAAARRRRGHHHHHHH.

I just gotta keep thinking about how nice Hickory HIll Park is in the spring... and how great City Park pool is in hot weather... It. will. get. better.

My friend Karmen told me last night that I need to drink more. Maybe she's right...

1. Misty: You. are. not. helping. :D
2. Veg*: How is it possible that alcoholism is higher in the desert than here?
3. Danielle: Sorry, I'm staying indoors. I just am.

I feel ever-so-smug.

I suggest that you laugh at me in rainy hurricane season.

You held out longer than me - my ass checked out about three months ago. I would eat my left arm to live somewhere warm right now.
