Oddballery


What is going on around here? I mean, for real. Everything is all topsy turvy; Anna Nicole is dead, they hired a woman as the new president at Harvard, and this morning my Principal made an actual, honest-to-goodness attempt at making a joke. So what gives? Why has my little world been turned upside down? Is this some cosmic phenomenon caused by changes in the tides after an iceberg broke off into the sea? Am I going to wake up tomorrow to find that the state of Maine under water?

Usually things aren't so strange around here, the library is it's own little cocoon of oblivion. However, it seems as though the fates have it in for me this week. NPR news this morning forecasted 10 inches of snow on Tuesday night, which may translate into a snowy Valentine's Day. And since when does New England get snow? It's almost unprecedented in the state of Massachusetts.

Memo to any higher being that may be out there doing weird stuff: no school on Wednesday would be a great Valentine's present, better even than one of those classy Whitman's Samplers. But there, now that I've said it we'll probably just get some cold drizzly sleet that will ruin my hair and soak into my socks and be totally annoying, but won't keep us out of school. So I take it back. I hope we do have school. I hope they decide on Wednesday that we need extra school, that we all have to stay until 9 p.m. that night. In fact, I hope they just decide that we're so far behind that we need to just have a sleepover here on Wednesday.

But just in case, I'm going to wear my pajamas backwards on Tuesday night. Because you just never know what might appease those fickle snow gods.

when i was a kid and wanted a snow day (we had snow in maine when i was a kid!), i would always do all my homework and study extra hard for a test. then i was sure to see my weatherman in a cool argyle sweater come morn' (a sure fire sign that there were cancellations to be scrolled through!)
good luck! i'm sending my denver winter vibes your way!

Like I said on my blog, it's because Mercury is going into retrograde :-)

M- Did you have Al Kaprelian as your weatherman? He always wore argyle too. Sex-ay.

RL- I like the way that sounds. I'm going to start saying it to people. "Mercury is going into retrograde!"

A- Really? Let's trade! I want summer.
