I’ve neglected you guys, and I’m sorry. Everybody needs their online distractions at regular intervals, right?
In semi-valuable news, we got some of this in Virginia yesterday:
It’s pretty, almost just like that picture. Add a bit of grime and some melting, and that’s it exactly. Even with the grime and the melting, snow makes any day seem better.
Lorelei Gilmore (of Gilmore Girls fame) agrees about the awesomeness of snow. Even though lots of people in my life don’t like Gilmore Girls, I stick with the fact that just about everything can relate in some way to an episode of that show. I’ve included a clip to demonstrate. Also, their faces aren’t that weirdly proportioned in non-YouTube footage.
And in case you can’t bring yourself to watch a clip from that particular show, here’s a clip from White Christmas. My super manly brother likes this movie, and I like this movie. Between the two of us, there’s a pretty diverse range of taste, so give it a shot even though it’s really old and includes lots of singing.
If both of those clips seem totally useless to you, here’s something that should make almost anyone laugh. I forget how much fun it is to watch people get mildly injured until I catch a few minutes of America’s Funniest Home Videos every once in a while. This is like that, but 80’s snow edition.
And totally unnecessary fact of the day: I once made a snow angel while wearing a bathing suit. That’s what happens when you go to a hot spring pool in Colorado in December. Or that’s what happens if you’re susceptible to challenges like I am.
