coffee
It's snowing! I put on my beloved red wellies and spent an hour shoveling the front of our house. It's technically the second snow of the season, but October's freak snowstorm was long enough ago that people seem to be enjoying the novelty. A slightly creepy passing man told me that I was too pretty to be shoveling, and I said "bless your heart", which is an expression I find extremely useful in my day to day life: it is Texan for "fuck you, buddy".

Our regular weekend cafe was packed and, as sometimes happens, we got stuck between two tables with VERY LOUD TALKERS, both of them edifying their friends with stories about (on the left) their small business and (on the right) how cute it is when their kids knock over chairs in coffee shops. Smoke started coming out of Joel's ears, so we took ourselves home without getting coffee refills.

The rest of this afternoon is about co-op paperwork, password changes, sorting out future travel, and various other chores of the type that hang out at the back of your todo list and start to smell. Later I expect we'll order indian food and watch Sherlock. It's good weather for quiet domesticity.

Yes, rock is the only correct response. I'm amazed so many people got it wrong.
