Equator dreams.

The weather in Ms.Chievous land decided to get really rude last week.
We're talking 6 degrees in the day time WITHOUT factoring in the nasty wind chill.
The critters schools even had a few late start days because of the ickyness.
Our aged furnace just wasn't keeping up, so we bought a few space heaters to compensate (viagra for furnaces?).
I have insomniac tendencies anyway, with maybe a side of OCD. :o)

Finally fall asleep:
Car passes outside: I wake up startled, house must be burning down!
Police siren from 138 miles away: I wake up startled, fearing I may be arrested for not checking the batteries in the smoke alarm for two hours!
Neighbor hood dog barks: I wake up startled, house must be burning down!
Husband farts: I wake up startled, house must be burning down, and it started in the toilet!
Complete silence: I wake up startled, because the house isn't burning down yet!
Give up sleep efforts, watch a DVD and curse Randy for getting me addicted to the Sopranos.

    Are you near where that family got trapped in the snow for nine days? Poor guy.

    I'm in Ohio this week. Cold as hell. I got off the plane and wanted to get back on and go back home. It's not terribly warm there, but it's better than here.

    Nice to see the 'rents though. I see daughter and grandkids tomorrow.

    I don't know what you're tawlking about (doing my best Livia impersonation). Speaking of that show, there's an irritating ad on for Jared Jewelers, in which people repeat "he went to Jared" ad nauseum. Last night, DW asked where I would go, and I said "mine fell off of the truck." She said she'll remember that--if there ever is a next time for me to buy jewelry.
