[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

I'm very glad that it's almost Christmas and that Elias and I are going to Austin to see my parents. I feel like I can definitely use some time to relax, and there's no place better for it than your parents' house. With the possible exception of tropical beaches. But it's 50/50.

Today's the last day of my interviewing job at Macalester (not that I have any interviews today), but I did end up getting the job to read applications. That's nice, and will last until the end of February. In the long term, I have failed to find brilliant solutions to the problem of employment, but for the short term, I'm doing ok.

Today is also the last day of krav maga, which means, of course, that I have become an unstoppable fighting machine. Clearly. To further hone our killer instincts, Elias and I are considering taking another six-week session in January and February. We'll see.

In other news, there's the obvious tons of snow, which, I have to say, is a lot more of a pain in the ass when it falls in increments larger than a foot. I feel like the Cities can handle 12 inches, but 17 seems to be a problem. I mean, at some point, you have to put the physical bulk of it somewhere or you can't see around corners anymore. I'm not joking. Line of sight for making left turns has become a major issue.

Anyway, it's almost Christmas and I only have a few days of work left at my other job, so the feeling of holiday vacation is increasing by the hour. Next thing you know I'll be capping off the morning workout with a mimosa.

My thongue hurths

Out of a morbid curiosity, do you and Elias still drive down to Austin, or do you fly?

Hahaha, well I never know with you thrill-seekers, maybe you enjoy spinning out on ice after driving fourteen hours straight.

Anyway, have a safe flight, when you go. I'm flying through Dallas. We can be ships crossing in the night. AIR SHIPS.

Great, because they inevitably lead to Sky Pirates! On the other hand, Doomgaze. Bit of a mixed bag, really.

Oh, what am I talking about, SKY PIRATES.

Line of sight

At least it's so dark that you're almost always driving at headlight-hour. That saved me yesterday after work!

I just got this image of you on the elliptical, cool as a cucumber, reading and sipping a mimosa. Pretty much awesome.

PS - we're in the midst of getting what looks like about .75" of snow and there's talk of cancelling the workout night I go to that's a mile from all of our homes.

By the time you wrote this, school was already cancelled in Durham and Wake counties due to chance of snow.

Don't you love how the Carolinas cancel school for "chance" of snow?
