Friday Fourteen

1. Snow! Real snow. As in big flakes falling for several hours, at least an inch on the ground, traffic backed up, buses running late snow.

2. Snow + Sudafed * Friday afternoon class = Unhappy Lisa.

3. Yeah, I'm on the Sudafed. I've got a cold. And, seriously, you'd think I have pneumonia the way I've been going on about it.

4. I hereby pledge that if there's a snowstorm and I'm sitting in a warm, dry car, I will stop at the crosswalks to let the pedestrians, who are trudging through the COLD, WET SNOW, cross the street and get to a warm, dry place as quickly as they can.

5. I recently watched the latest version of Pride & Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightly), and I've got to say that I just don't understand the fanaticism surrounding Jane Austen.

6. You're supposed to feed a cold, right?

7. Rowen has recently decided that she will only drink water that comes from the Brita filter. If I put tap water in her bowl, she stares at it and cries.

8. Rowen, however, thinks that snow is very tasty.

9. My MP3 player is busted. I am very sad.

10. I'm discovering that most anthropologists are, ironically, misanthropes.

11. Levi-Strauss ruined Christmas for me. And weddings.

12. I think Nacho Doritos are better than Cool Ranch.

13. One of my car tires is halfway to flat and I've been choosing to ignore it all week. I only drive my car every other day, and then usually just around the block to find a new parking spot.

14. I didn't vote in the midterm elections.

i'm surprised you didn't vote!

i see jane austen as kind of the original chick lit writer. but i know some ppl see her as overly stiff and mannered.

I'd like the hear more about #10 sometime...that's surprising to me.

And yes! I hear you are supposed to feed a cold with generous amounts of Old Bay Utz or nacho cheese Doritos- whichever is most handily available.

Re #10 - it's because of all the heavy reading they have to do ;)

Shame on you. I'm sorry. That's all I have.
OK, well, I agree Jane Austen is overrated too and Doritos are just plain evil so of course they are delicious in all varieties, but I too agree that nacho cheesier is better than ranch.
Now THAT's REALLY all I have.

I could do without Jane Austen as well. I just don't get it. Maybe it is just the period that people like.
