More Snow

Just when I think I've left all that cold fluffy stuff back in decides to "snow" here. It wasn't sticking to the ground or anything and it prolly only lasted about 30 minutes...but it was awesome. It hasn't snowed here in at least 7 years. My little brothers had a blast running around in it and catching it in their hands. They were freaking out.

Anyways...I've been home since Saturday night. Our drive home was pretty crazy. We hit a big snowstorm as we were coming into Rigby, ID so we stopped there to get snow tires. It was was super early in the morning and we were trying to stay awake but before we knew it we were all sprawled out in the lobby of some auto shop. We were all sleeping and we woke up to a bunch of other customers staring at us. The rest of the drive was still pretty scary. We saw a couple of cars flipped over on the side of the road and one giant truck that had skidded off the road. We had to put chains on going through Donner Pass and we could only drive like 30 mph....not fun. In the end we made it home safe and sound :)

Being home has been amazing! Monday I did absolutly nothing. It was great. I got up around noon, made mom some food (she's been kinda sick), and then watched movies all day. Normally, I would feel guilty about being so lazy, but I figure I worked so hard last week for finals, I deserve it. Alex and Sam and I have been having so much fun, we have been having a Karate Kid marathon...I love those movies. Jules and I will soon be getting our party on. She was still in school she has been working like crazy for her dance recital so we haven't been able to hang out much. She dragged me to see Twilight with her tonight....not my favorite movie...don't see it.

So Elche has been coming up to me like every 5 minutes and putting her nose right in my face. It's like she's checking to make sure I'm still sitting here. She's so adorable :)

This morning I woke up around 5:30am (an unusual occurance with me) and walked into the living room. The curtains were wide open and all I could see was white. It was on the cars, it was on the trees, it was everywhere! Since I'm done with all my photo projects, Let It Snow!
This is the tree outside my window where the evil squirrel usually sits...not anymore!

Kay this has nothing to do with anything but whatever. I had no idea you could burn pasta until this happened. They were almost on fire...crazy.

We're all buying the same stuff...

What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.
