I Knew I Should Have Gotten Out While I Had the Chance

Yes, it snowed today. No pictures -- just your standard snow scenes, maybe 3 inches or so -- some wet and heavy stuff earlier this afternoon, followed by powder.

Now, I should have gone out to get coffee and wifi this afternoon, because I've been kind of a hermit since Monday. (Well, I did meet a homeschooled kid as I was shoveling the walk today.)

I didn't go out yesterday -- I was going to do Dr. Dremo's for Psychotronic movie night, but even though they've got just over a month left in their current location, I just couldn't get psyched for Manchurian Avenger. (Life imitates the Onion yet again, perhaps: See "Aging Gen-Xer Doesn't Find Bad Movies Funny Anymore.")

So instead of cheap beer and bad movie, I stayed in and had free beer (well, paid-for, anyway) and good movie (Battlestar Galactica: Razor, plus a few episodes I'd taped around Thanksgiving).

Today, I'd planned on going to a grip-and-grin for us involuntary alumni at the outplacement center, but as little as it snowed today, I'm not going to go driving after it freezes over. (And having a drink or two is especially out.)

This sounds kind of pathetic, so I'll just say that I've got a couple things lined up through the end of the week.
