Damn, looks like most of the country is covered in snow at the moment.
After having to trudge my way through the snow to get to my car yesterday morning, I’ve come to the conclusion that I really need a flamethrower to carry around. It would’ve made jumping through the five foot snowdrifts a lot easier if I could’ve just melted that shit instead. I could’ve also melted the snow that was piled up on the un-plowed ally that I had to drive through to get onto the main road. Instead, I was stuck for 35 minutes trying to get past this slippery 10 feet of slushy and snowy mess that my rear wheel drive Lexus IS300 just couldn’t manage.
The thing is that I’m not the first person to have this ridiculous idea, as google provided quite a bit of fun crap when searching for “flamethrower snow”, including this image below that was apparently an ad in the early 1970s. The best part about this ad is the comment, “It’s so easy even your wife can do it!” I guess things were a little different back in the ’70s.
I always hate Saturday afternoons when there’s no football on because it always take me a while to figure out something to do to fill up the space that was once always occupied. I’ve just been catching up on Tivo crap and will work in some video games, but I’m feeling a bit restless and need to get out. The thing stopping me is that it’s still freaking cold outside and I still haven’t come close to adjusting to it after living in SF for the past 9 years. I’m become a bit of a pussy!
There is some promising news to report, however. I’ve just noticed that the girls directly across from me and the naked girl the floor below them have been opened up their shades this afternoon. If they stay open for tonight, I may get a peep show for free! If not, then I’ll have to count on Bad Company & Too Human to entertain myself until it’s time to get drunk and party with the hot girls of Boston.
The super quick surgical procedure was also a Godsend because Brandon was able to pick me up before it got too insane outside with the snowfall. It was coming down hard by the time he got me from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and it was already white all over, but the storm had basically just hit at that time so it wasn’t overly horrendous outside.
They’re saying we will be getting up to 12″ of snow and I honestly don’t mind at all because I’m stuck inside this weekend anyway because of the surgery. Really love watching the snowfall, anyway, because it’s almost as pretty as the snow in APF during night games. It can be quite mesmorizing and, thankfully, I don’t have to drive in it.
