Oink, oink

Well, it is cold today.  People in Kansas City are freaking out because the high today is 11 degrees.  Maybe, again, I am hardcore, but this does not strike me as a huge deal.  We got about two inches of snow last night, and half the city has shut down–schools, and apparently people’s ability to drive.  My commute this morning was quadrupled in length–30 minutes to 2 hours, which was fun.  But anyway.  See?  Snow.

If nothing else, snow gives me an excuse to break out my cute snow boots.  I can’t wear tall boots because my calves are monstro sized.  These boots are by Tretorn and this is my second pair.  They’re fuzzy and warm and leak-proof.  My first pair is perfectly fine, still, but I bought the white and they got all banged up, sadly.  These are brown and shiny and less prone to scuffing.

At lunch today, I got my H1N1 vaccine.  Even though I’m a hair over the age limit (I’m 25 and they’re approving it for 24 and unders), I was able to get one gratis through my employer because of my asthma.  It didn’t hurt at all.  I did, however, laugh, when the nurse touched my upper arm/shoulder and told me to stop flexing my muscle, when, in fact, I was not flexing…that’s just my arm.  Wooo!

I know the H1N1 shot is controversial, but frankly, I am not a doctor and I tend to trust people with medical degrees.  I get annoyed when non-lawyers attempt to give legal advice and I presume doctors feel the same way when non-doctors try to think they know better than the doctors do.  I’m trusting.  I admit it.  If my arm turns purple and falls off, at least I know how to sue.

Anyway, my laptop is dead.  The poor old thing will be 3 years old on March 17, 2010 and is luckily still under warranty through Best Buy.  The last week it’s not been registering that it’s plugged in when it is, which I think means the AC adapter and/or battery are fried.  It’s happened to this laptop before, and if it breaks one more time in the next three months I get a replacement.

Also, my “Control” key has completely fallen off.  I have, very literally, lost control.  Sigh.  Hopefully they can replace it.

I didn’t work out today because my quads and hamstrings are on fire.  No, not on fire–flex your muscle real hard until it gets to the point of hurting real bad.  That’s what it feels like right now, ALL THE TIME.  My body says rest.  I say okay.  I’m hoping to run outside again tomorrow when it’s warmed up a bit.

So, tonight, we are watching the Glee finale and eating macaroni and cheese and hot dogs, which, really, in my mind is the perfect little evening.

Here is a cute picture of Southpaw to finish this post off right:

Do you/did you get a flu shot?
