11/08/2006: "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow."
Well, I skipped my life drawing session last night.
I got all ready but just didnít quite make it out the door. It was so warm and cozy in my house that I wanted to just curl up on the couch with a mug of cocoa and a book instead.
This morning I woke up to snow falling outside my bedroom window; I love that, itís has such a calming effect on me. I really should be out taking photos. I'd also like to go cross country skiing tonight after work. Being outside in the snow makes me feel like Iím 10 years old again!
Another reason why I'm doing the Snoopy Dance this morning, is because of the results of the mid-term elections here in the US yesterday. The Republicans got their asses handed to them. And Rumsfeld is out! Finally an election that doesnít make me want to tear my own eyes out. Of course, here in Alaska Sarah Palin won the governorís raceÖshe believes in abstinence only sex ed in the schools and is against equal rights for gay people and will probably try to move the capitol out of Juneau, destroying our local economy and causing our property values to plummetÖbut hey, you canít win them all.
