Nothing says vacation like blizzard warnings

The Lovely Becky and I were scheduled to begin our vacation today, a luxurious jaunt down south where the temperatures are rumored to be above freezing. Of course, that means it was time for a UP snowstorm to shit all over our plans. On top of that, I have been working like a dog all week so that I can take a week off like a gentleman.

So the Random 11 is snowed in as well, unable to rock or groove much. I'm taking my computer, though, because I will have time to blog next week, and that in itself feels like a vacation.

So open thread for parental advice, your favorite strange meat stories, and/or punning so excessive, it violates the Geneva Convention.

It's funny (probably not for you), I was watching the news last night and when the weather came on they actually specifically mentioned the UP and the bad storm coming. I thought "boy that sucks for Brando."

Huh, and a random shuffle on my player tossed up 3 Violent Femmes songs in the first 7.

GET OUT OF MY IPOD.

Actually, hang out for a while. My music folder could use some improvement.

That sucks. Stay warm! Get out as soon as you can!

nothing to complain about, menD

fishy sent me a little old school alt in the form of Screaming Blue Messiahs, which was very very tasty. Thanks, fish, I salute your transparent skull...

Glad you got it. I was going to follow up since I basically guessed on the postage.
I suspect this will be the only time I had some music that you didn't...

Jennifer said...

Oh... fine. He'll send ZRM music, but he couldn't send me any baked goods. fish is truly coldblooded.

You try to light a pilot light underwater.

Ahem...

I don't know how to read.

Jennifer said...

Oh right... but you can comment...

One day, fish... I'm going to be coming after your cookies (and I don't mean these) and it won't be pretty.

So, does that mean that you can't go at all, or that you just have to wait a day or two? I hope you all get out of there and see sunshine and warmth and be sure to let us know what it feels like.

How long and where in the South? I will be in Birmingham, Natchez, and Atlanta over the next week.

fish said...

I love those cookies (in a purely platonic way).
