Miscellaneous Manure Pt. 5

Am I the only one receiving more than the usual number of spam emails lately? I am even getting them on the weekends. Leave me alone Spirit Halloween, I don't care if everything is 75% off, it is Christmas, not Halloween!

We are expecting our first significant snowfall TOMORROW so why is it freaken snowing and sleeting right NOW? I am just a little nervous being that I have a different car than last winter and I have not driven it in the snow yet. I had brand new snow tires put on it, so wish me luck.
(Add.)I wrote the above yesterday, and the snow did stop before I left work and the roads were clear. Now it is Thursday and there is a winter storm warning out calling for 5-10 inches of snow, sleet or freezing rain. It's supposed to be worst overnight which is when I will be driving home from work. UGH! I do have houses on the way I can stop at if I go off the road. They are spread out anywhere from 3-10 miles apart. The ride to and from work is 36 miles long. I won't go to any strangers home for fear they might be relatives of Ed Gein. But, I know me, lazy, so if I do go off the road I'll just hold up in my car and eat my emergency stash of candy bars and wait for help.

Speaking of candy bars, I joined Weight Watchers 4 weeks ago, actually going to the meetings joined, and as of today's meeting I have lost 8.8 pounds! Yay Me! So I should probably put some diet treats in my emergency stash.

I am going on a Drama Club field trip with E to Boston on Saturday. We are going to see
How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I hope it's not snowing, those crazy bus drivers, drive fast. I'll bring my Xanax.

Hey, I think we're sending a whole lot of water your way, so if you've got cold, which I know you do, you are going to get dumped on. And as for the 8.8 lbs?


I am so impressed, and a whole lot jealous.

PLEASE tell me you have AAA. It's so cheap. For 78 bux a YEAR they'll tow you free for 100 miles, bring gas and other free stuff. There's a cheaper one at 48 bux but the free tow is only 14 miles. (I had that and then upgraded) Having food AND water in a car is great but if it's cold, you can die if u burn thru your gas. also carry a spare quart of oil and an empty gas tank)

We can't live without it in California. I got stuck once and that's all it took.

Hmmm, a private stash of candy bars, how wonderful!! I am sure you will do great with your new snows, we've had a lot here as well, but I love it. I need snow for it to feel like Christmas. A really bid congrats on your 8.8, way to go girlfriend!!
