It apparently snowed a bit this morning which is pretty cool, though it doesn’t look like much out there. I heard that they got 150% more snow already than last year, which makes me feel better, knowing that all this snow is just a fluke and not regular. I don’t know why it is comforting, but chaos is.

At about 5 this morning, the fire alarm went off. I don’t know if I can stress enough just how loud the fire alarm here is!! It is so disorientating and loud that it isn’t recognizable as a ‘fire alarm’. Probably ‘air raid siren’, ‘tsunami red alert’ and ‘terrorist attack warning’ would come to mind before ever guessing that the blaring alarm was for a fire. The dead people in the cemetery five blocks away awoke from their eternal slumber, to be sure.
It hasn’t been a super fantastic last few days. I feel sympathetic towards zombies. My ear hurts like the dickens for some reason and I don’t know why. I feel like crawling under the covers and sleeping a century or two. It must be the effects of the antibiotic or something. I think I’m on some new pain killers which really make me ‘wonky’ as my bestest friendy Natalie’s mamma would say (she’s South African!). Unfortunately it doesn’t do much for the pain, which is a shame because if it’s gonna make me really zonked, it might as well help me!
OMG! What a very action packed few days it has been.
What did I do today? This question makes a drop of jealousy slide down into my stomach thinking about what you all did today. I get queasy and pissed off because of what I could have been doing today. Life is just so infinitely cool if you aren’t sick. I really want to get better NOW, rather than do all the annoying stuff to get better. I need ze quick fix!!
There are piles of snow around New Haven that are practically mountains, especially in the parking lots. Very cool. It’s 16 F (-10 C). Which is so NOT cool for me.
Please allow me to use Pagan mythology for a long and rambling metaphor. I spent some good time scrambling these past few days into the brain blender, churning memories over to find something I could pull out of the darkness and use to color this world. I first heard the story of Yggdrasil in a story book, written as a fairy tale, with detailed pictures of this mythical…well, myth.
Ew, 2009! That officially makes me OLD (ha!) and about to graduate, or in a year. I mean it looks way closer than it ever has before. And it’s never looked this far away.
