February: 0, Special K: 1

There's over a foot of snow outside in Chicago, but thanks to a kindly neighbor with one of those nifty shovel machines who does our sidewalks, I'm on top! Thanks to him, I had a renewed believe in humanity and the energy to do the back walk all the way to the trashcan, so a certain husband can throw out the trash later. (The kindly neighbor will find a bottle of wine chilling in the snow.)

Yesterday as I was trudging through the snow, gettin' kind of grouchy, I had to keep reminding myself that it was actually gorgeous, and fun. It was snowing perfect, Currier and Ives, Tahoe-quality snow, sparkly and light. Today I took the plunge and planted a snow angel outside my kitchen window. brrrrr!

It has somehow registered on my radar that the Giants are in the SuperBowl. Ha HA! I happen to have a Giants t-shirt from my San Francisco days, so now I have something to wear to our annual Super Bowl party, which is really just an excuse to eat Cheesy Poofs and (meatless) mini-pigs in blankets (nut free).
Ready to vote for your favorite (democrat!) on Tuesday? Get out the vote!!!

Hey dork, the San Fransisco Giants play baseball, the NEW YORK Giants play football and will be in the Superbowl this weekend.

I like your new ID photo for comments and such. It looks like you have been treated like Tom Hanks in Polar Express or Jolie in Beowulf (sp? I haven't had to spell that since senior year). Ick, I have so much reading and thinking to do before Tuesday. Isn't there going to be a TV debate? They had a big deal at the Kodak (how do regular people get tickets to debates?) but I didn't see it on TV. Someone give me a heads up if possible.

There are a lot of debates online. I think there's an MTV/youtube thing going on. Start here.
