Okay, I am ready to be snowed in overnight! We have food, plenty of toilet paper, shovels and salt… Hopefully it won’t be as bad as they’re predicting. Originally they were saying we’d get about a foot of snow, but now the storm is veering to the north, and we might get more like two feet! I went to the supermarket yesterday (unrelated to the blizzard) and it was crowded and they were out of a lot of things already. I can’t imagine how it would be today.
I watched a lot of TV this week, and of course I saw the Lost premiere! I think what I’ll have to do on Tuesdays is watch Lost and then catch the repeats of the Duggars. It’ll be a late night, but at least I generally work from home on Wednesdays, so I can sleep in a little bit. Of course I’m totally confused by Lost already, but I do have one theory that people seem to like, which is that the Man in Black can take the form of any dead person on the island. Obviously he’s Locke right now. I think he was probably also Christian. And all the other dead people who’ve reappeared in the past, maybe he was posing as them as well. It’s not a “posession” thing, because Locke’s actual body is still there (MIB/Locke walked right past it)! But I do think there is some sort of posession going on with Sayid (and apparently Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse said on Jimmy Kimmel that something is “inhabiting” his body).
Things are picking up a bit at work, and I’ve been working on some things that will give me some exposure to the new people, so that’s good, hopefully I make a good impression on them. (Speaking of work, and TV shows, how about The Office last night? Once again, hitting a little too close to home, haha!) I have all these unresolved things going on, though. I really hate having open issues, but I’m waiting to hear back from various people about things, and it’s kind of stressing me out! Also, we’re moving to a totally different system for e-mail this month, with lots of limits and stuff, so everyone’s going to have to pretty much change the way they handle all e-mail. I can’t believe that in this modern age of super-cheap memory (i.e. it’s cheaper to buy more memory than to pay someone for the work time it will take to clean up and delete files) and cloud and network computing, we would move toward massive restrictions on file storage and storing everything locally. Oh well. We’ll roll with it, I guess.
Lots of fun stuff coming up! Superbowl with Julie and Brad, if we’re not all still snowed in on Sunday. Next weekend GG and I are going out for Valentine’s Dinner. The following weekend is a “girls’ night” with some ladies from work, we’re basically going to a super fancy Mexican restaurant – should be awesome. And in a month I’m taking an overnight trip with some friends that includes a spa day! I still have to use up a few more vacation days before the end of March, so if anyone has any ideas…
