guess what I did first thing this morning?

It's too painful to think about the cherry trees in bloom in Victoria today, so the remainder of my Great BC Odyssey travelogue will have to wait until tomorrow. Even prior to the big overnight snowdump, I was too bummed and too bagged to venture out of the house, even though we had guess passes and everything to the Portico concert. My apologies to Lyn, Mimi, and Greg; I am a poor excuse for a fan.

For today, I am just going to curl up on the chesterfield with a blanket and immerse myself in some comfort music. And who better to sing me through this depressing Sunday than Great Lake Swimmers and Sigur Ros?

Pulling on a Line - Great Lake Swimmers


Starálfur - Sigur Rós

I was going to guess that you took a pee first thing this morning.

Wandering Coyote said...

That is totally depressing, and I know exactly how you fell, trust me. It snowed all night here, and in the morning the sand truck had to go by and put down grit. It's depressing beyond words...

Well technically you would be right, Dr M. A girl's got priorities.

It is completely demoralizing, innit, Wandering Coyote? We don't get our residential streets grated or sanded (they rely on chinooks) and the 4 wheel drive almost got stuck the other day.

Oi. How depressing. Its still cold and snowy here, but not nearly as much. I feel for you. Hope it melts soon!

It really is the winter that will not die isn't it? They are calling for more snow on both Wednesday and Friday this week.

Time to hide the knives.

Y'know, looking at snow actually helps right now. The weather here is too hot for words. Damn the bleeding Southern Hemisphere!

And Sigur ros! That's gorgeous. Oh you'd probably like to know that Jonsi and his lovely boyfriend (who designs their graphics and stuff) are currently kicking back in Hawaii, working on a new album together. Joy!

I was going to guess "cleaned out your belly button lint," but shoveling looks like so much more fun.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

We have sooo much snow, it is going to be an ungodly mess when it starts to melt, Al. In the meanwhile, I have just succumbed to the despair, it's easier than fighting it.

Good plan, Urban Blonde. The knives are now locked up, along with the ax and the chainsaw.

I am glad that my pain is helping to lessen your pain somewhat, BAP. Makes it all worth it.
I wonder how a Hawaiian record will differ from an Icelandic one? I can't think of two more different countries.

Actually my belly button is pretty lint-free, Beckeye, so I couldn't even use that as a displacement activity.

When is this going to end Barb... I am sick of it. Even I have to clear the snow so that I can get the car otta the parking spot!
I can imaginge wha a taskit would be to shovel all that snow...and it was heavy!

It is heavy snow, Jas, one of the downsides to the weather being slightly warmer than in the dead of winter.
And now I notice that the sidewalks are huge sheets of ice.
