Well, here it is, Tuesday, and I've still not gotten to Costco to pick up the last of my prescriptions. Too cold!! I can never get a parking spot anywhere within a city block or so from the store, so I've been bad and didn't go - but I have GOT to go tonite because I"m out of diltiazem, and I can TELL when I don't take it - get palpatations and all.

Soooooooo - heigh ho, heigh ho, it's in the cold I go..... Ugh. Trying to be perky about trudging through the frozen tundra of the Costco parking lot is not working. I guess I shall have to put on my curmudgeon hat and grumble a lot.

I do have a new hat. It is ridiculous. A while back I had posted a photo of me hiding behind my protest sign at one of the peace rally's here - wearing my brown coat and silly pink hat. Well, the silly pink hat is still functional, but it is old and I'm getting a bit tired of it. Also, it pulls out my ponytail, which is then a PITA to recomb and re-tail. So I got a new hat. It is blue and black and white/grey. It is head-hugging, kind of like the silly pink hat, but it is even sillier looking. It is FLUFFY. Furry!! It looks like a blue and black and grey cat lying on the desk here by me. It is, however, warm, and not the pink hat, and it doesn't pull my hair all over.

You know, I've been looking at how often I post. It's a good thing they don't pay me to write this blog, because I'm one piss-poor correspondent.

By the way - Croila asked why I spell it Sn*w... BBC got it right. After the first 1/2 inch or so, it becomes a vile and nasty 4-letter word that should not be spelled out in polite company!!

I love the sound of a pink hat!

And that's a brilliant of "sn*w". How funny ... and how true!

Hat is a hat, functional, protects your head, sillier the better. i don't wear a cap, i love caps, but i sweat a lot in my head, on my head ?? The cap gets wet.

Did you watch the eclipse last night ?


1/2 inch of snow? No fair! We have none. Sulking.
