1-100

For those of you keeping score, it is now February: 10, Special K: 2. We were supposed to get 2-3 inches of snow yesterday, but in the afternoon it started snowing, quite hard, and did not stop all night. We have at least 6 inches (in addition to the snow we already had, which covered a layer of slush, which covered a layer of ice). Everyone is wandering around at their wit's end, muttering out, "I've had enough!" and "This is getting old!" The fact that we will not actually experience anything like warm weather for approximately another 6 months is particularly depressing. I spent most of yesterday researching those special lights you shine on yourself if you have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD? Come on!), which, it turns out, are really expensive.

Well, in order to fight the winter dulldrums, I'd like to announce a few upcoming blogging events to occur right here on Agoraphobia - next week, the annual If We Picked the Oscars, whereby "we" is myself and a few friends who have hardly seen any movies all year, much less the nominated films, who nevertheless regale you with our own elite opinions. The following week I'm planning to do a week of Green Blogging, and I invite you to do your own Green Blogging on your own website, and we'll all share our ideas about - you guessed it! Making the World a Better Place! Teaser: I'm about to make my own laundry detergent and test it out - I'll let you know on Green Week! (And now I bet you can't wait, right?)

And here's one more thing to amuse you during this dark, cold time, an awesome short film - check it out!

Looking forward to your blogging events. I always enjoy "If we picked the oscars." I haven't seen anything this year, either, since there was hardly anything good! I'm very curious about this detergent. The last time I made something like that it was in 11th grade chemistry. It was lotion and it gave me a rash:( Probably wasn't green lotion.

I think you need to 'splain the scoring. Seems like February has the game rigged...

I hate to say the scoring is as arbitrary as February.
