Has it been awhile, or what? I guess I just have to plead "busy" or "lazy" or "distracted", not that I ever was too regular in posting anyway. Health issues. Work issues. "Other" issues. I'd almost forgotten my password to sign in here, it's been so long. On the other hand, I needed a vacation-- although it would have been nicer to have taken it in, say, Jamaica. Going to try out a 365-style project this new year with the photoblogging. There will be no promises on this one, since I frequently have long hour workdays that prevent me from even getting near a camera. I'd still like to see if I can do it, even if I have the attention span of a 5-year-old on a sugar high. The photos will be posted here and on the little widget on my sidebar, along with my regular art-teeest-ic shots. And it's back to class as well on Monday, not a day too soon. The mind has been turning to mush with 3 months of break. Next up? "Political Theory".
Course Description An overview of political thought from the Ancient Greeks to the present. The course is an examination of the debate about human nature, governance regimes, justice, equality, liberty, and human rights. This course is an essential foundation for the Political Science major.
Heh. Can't wait......

After a foot of white stuff, 30 mph winds whipping it to blizzard proportions, and a steep drop in temperatures over the last couple of days, the title of this site is entirely appropriate. Man, I got spoiled by the relatively warm weather in November!! THE F***ING WEATHER.

It turns out that I just missed making snarky smart-alacky comments on the news. I missed being able to stretch my little writing fingers, such as they are, over the daily news and daily life. I looooved being able to post pictures, but I seem to have finally gotten my act together on a "photoblog" that integrates fully with Flickr-- so for better or for worse, I'm back. Now that the other issues that have been keeping me quiet have subsided for now, it'll be back to school next month. If I'm going to be swamped with readings and writing agin, I might as well get with it. If it's worth doing, it's worth OVERdoing, right? I can't wait. I'm feeling snarky today.

Time flies when you're busy. Photos are taken, but the blog gets neglected. This was just a shot out the car window of the fields which are full of hunters chasing the wily elusive Odocoileus virginianus. If you look closely you just might see a flash of blaze orange in the tall grass. Hunters, not whitetails.

wpid5513-sox.jpg There is absolutely nothing like new warm wool socks this time of year, especially for somebody like me who is world-famous for her icy feet. Yes. I do have another pair exactly like these. Since you asked.

wpid5488-lines.jpg The tendency to believe that when things are bad that they are only getting worse is something I need to work on. Baby steps.
