Scattered musings

I usually have the blinds closed in my room, but I'm glad I opened them. The picture, I realize, is not spectacular. It is, however, the first snow of winter here. Most of the snow's gone now, but I got to experience the novelty of seeing fluffy white flakes, and furthermore see them on a day off from work when I can lounge around and sip at my coffee indulgently, cozy, not having to scrape an undercoat of ice off my car or brave slick roads. Ahh, now that's luxury.

And today, Thanksgiving, is a day for friends and family (blood relation's the only distinction, as far as I'm concerned). And let's not forget the tryptophan-and-carb-induced torpor. The house will be full of wonderful aromas--turkey, baking pies, and, uh, the rest of the stuff on the menu. I don't do too much on the kitchen end of things (for heaven's sake, I exploded my dinner last weekend... in the microwave). I do bring my appetite, though ;).

if one has a bad cold, and one's doctor has prescribed cough meds with codeine, the torpor has nothing to do with tryptophan.

enjoy your snow-dusting; we're waiting for our first flurries sometime this weekend.
