Yep, It Snowed Alright

What always amazes me about snowstorms is how nobody ever learns. Right now, Scratch and I are relaxing after some heavy duty gate-freeing, lock-de-icing, and yes, shoveling.

The president of our very small condo association asked Scratch if he knew how to shovel snow. We were a little perturbed by that. While I understand that it is our first winter in this building, we are, in fact, functioning adult members of society. Unfortunately, when presented with that type of attitude I will go out of my way to make sure that person can never, EVER have anything on me. So yes, I went out at 6:30 this morning to shovel the front walk. Because someday, I will be able to pull that out. "Oh yeah? Like when I was shoveling the walk at 6:30 AM? Like that?" Someday.

I am really glad that it did not snow on Wednesday night, when I went to Borders to see Amy Sedaris plug her new entertaining book. It is hilarious. She makes me happy. Go buy her book or something!

In other news, I am super happy that it is the weekend! Wow! I can go grocery shopping, do laundry, and probably sweep, mop, and dust. Awesome! Have a great weekend!

Speaking of News Anchors...

I saw Walter Jacobsen in the pedmall* yesterday. I even had a dollar in my hand, coincidentally! But he did not ask for it, and I was in too much of a hurry to chase him down to satisfy my dream of giving Walter Jacobsen a dollar. And why can't I find any "Mean Street Diary" pictures to post here? Stupid Internet!

When I told some co-workers, none of them had even heard of Mean Street Diary, possibly THE MOST IMPORTANT SPECIAL INVESTIGATION...EVER! Oh well. One of my co-workers was funny enough to point out that Jacobson was fired from FOX a while ago, but maybe hangs out in the pedmall at Illinois Center all day because he hasn't told his wife yet.

*The thing that goes from Illinois Center to 201 N. Michigan. You can get to the pedway from it, but it isn't THE pedway.
