snow day, take III

i'm home again today, and will most likely be tomorrow, too.

we had another pass through of freezing rain last night. andrea and i went on a grand adventure out of the house to get to the street to see how bad it was there. neither her, nor i, had been out of the house at all since i had come home from work early on tuesday.

okay, so it had been a day and a half, but it somehow felt ... longer. but not in a bad way. if that makes any sense.

so, after imbibing in yet more boxed death juice (wine), we went to the street. it took quite a long time, and everything looked so.. alien. much like everything had been hit with a gigantic ice gun, much like the one ah-node weilded in that horrid batman movie.

note to self: when planning on walking in a winter wonderland, aubrey, please don more than just flip flops. your feet WILL get wet. your feet WILL freeze. let this be a lesson to you.

i call to michaels this morning, still no answer. i call to office max, mutter something like 'um.. yeah.. i have like.. the flu or something...'. roxanna actually giggles (!!!), and coos over me and tells me to feel better.

michaels calls me at 130 and asks me to come into work, that they're just now opening the store. O_o i was scheduled to get off at 230, and it would take me about an hour to walk there, which i was so not doing, (call me a weather weenie, but aubrey + ice = notgoodness.) and then another hour back. so i muttered something like 'um.. yeah..i have like... the flu... or something.' sonja grunted "fine. *click*".

i now know that the world is turned on its head by the horrid weather, just by the fact of how my works changed personalities completely with each other.

i shall leave you with the most hilarious statement on t.v. last night, something that was SO from an episode of Zim or the Simpsons:

"we will be bringing you further coverage on the accident down on I-5, but FIRST, we take you to LIVE FOOTAGE of a frozen tree."

O_O

TV: "and now, in a change to our regular programming, we bring you live, uninterrupted 24 hour coverage of this incredible frozen tree phenomenon!"

Gir (wathcing TV): "Yay for frozen trees!"
Zim: "Gir! Silence! Earth trees are our enemies as well.. look at them, sitting there, being all.. green! The audacity of these photosynthesising freaks! Pumping out all that oxygen, keeping the earth monkeys breathing.. death to trees!"

*Zim blasts the TV. Gir looks sad for a moment, then hops off the couch and walks over to the broken TV set, starting to eat his way through the wreckage.*

Gir: "TV is good for you!"
