Snow and the Internet

I have a love/hate relationship with snow–only probably a little heavier on the hate.  Snow is so pretty to look at, but that’s about it as far as redeeming qualities go.  It’s wet, it’s cold, and it makes me feel like I’m waddling like a penguin when I walk through it.  Also, it makes me fall down.  [Not today, thankfully.  One time last winter I was wearing sneakers instead of boots and fell right on my ass.  I made the mistake of telling Tim and he waited throughout the winter for me to do it again in his presence.  [I didn’t.]]

In non-snow news, I got a new Xbox game called “Left 4 Dead,” and it is glorious.  You are one in a group of four survivors of a zombie virus and you’re trying to get to a security checkpoint where you will be extracted.  At first, it was a little frightening, but as Tim and I played we started having too much fun killing zombies to be afraid.  Instead of avoiding the lights and noise that would attract hordes of zombies, we did whatever we could to get zombies to rush us.  If you have a 360, you should consider getting this game.  Furthermore, you should add me as a friend [myladyteri].  I’m sure I’d rather play with you than with perfect strangers.  Unless you suck at video games and then I’ll have to find some way to dodge you when you’re online–but we’ll cross that bridge when/if we get to it.

I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping, thank you Internet!  You know, if I could work from home I would have no reason to ever leave my apartment, except for going down to the front door to retrieve the various packages/Peapod grocery deliveries.  Is it bad that the idea of a life like that sounds great to me?  I’m sure I’d go out with friends or something, so it’s not like I’d never leave.  I just like the idea of never having to leave.  There’s a difference.

I’m sure that it’s reasons like this that I am single.  Though, in theory, that could also be resolved via Internet.

  1. I promise that if you worked from home, eventually home would make you crazy. I spend MOST of my time rotating between the office and the living room, depending on how much I have to do for work and there are days when my apartment closes in on me…it smells funny and stale (which no one else can smell), it's horribly dirty (which it's not, really), I hate my furniture, the few decorations we do have, etc. I seriously took off out of my house on saturday b/c work was driving me so crazy and I felt like I would kill myself/someone else.
    But for the most part, rolling out of bed and working in my PJs ROCKS.

What do you think?
