the BRUTAL, UGLY truth of my FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL life.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

16:45 + 01.12.2007 = if i had a meadow, i'd build me a snowman[woman][[cyborg]].

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


i awoke 4 hours following the last entry.
i wrapped myself in the quilt that used to blanket my parents' shared bed and hurried over to the computer to check the weather maps.

the radar showed nothing more than sickly cloud cover; no sign of snow. i sulkily dressed for work figuring that i might as well go in since the snowstorm looked to be an empty promise.

i reheated the coffee from yesterday and re-poured it into its to-go cup. scarf, coat, stocking cap, mittens, keys, ipod, mobile, cigarettes, lighter. out the door, down the stair, out the orange door, into the brisk. three and a half blocks up the alley: still no snow--not so much as a flurry of a flake.

punch in at 7.39am, tie on apron, affix nametag, start filling the appallingly empty pastry case. 10 o'clock rolls around and with it, comes the third-shift baker whose first words were, "man! lyndale [avenue] was a MESS this morning!"

why's that?

"THE SNOW!!!"

*gasp!* it's snowing!?

"yeah, guy!"

i grabbed a fresh cup of coffee, put on the necessary garb, and ran outside...

a good half-inch had fallen and the snow was coming down readily. five and a half hours pass and my shift is over. i trudge home through three inches of fluffy snow.

it hadn't stopped snowing...
it hasn't stopped snowing...
and it won't stop snowing.

it's time to make glögg.
...which'll require a few more trudgings through newly fallen/still-falling snow in order to acquire the ingredients.

and all seems well.
