So I essentially got up at 4:40 am after a solid week of bad sleep. It was awesome! The weather stayed at a level 2, and even though I could call off work no problem, I didn't because I would feel guilty all day and also because I am a SHINING EXAMPLE of a dedicated employee. So I hauled myself to the car and spent ten minutes trying to get my 4-wheel drive SUV out of the parking spot because there was so! much! darn! snow! And not only was there snow, but the FREEZING RAIN had started, so there was a nice sheet of ice on top of the snow. Why go the Russia for the Olympics when they can be held in my parking lot?
I decided to get gas on the way to work since I lacked the good sense to get it before the blizzard (I know, mom, I'm sorry), so I slid my way down the road and to the gas station. I tried to heave my car up the incline into the BP parking lot, but there was so much snow I started to get stuck, which was wonderful because the car behind me was sliding and spinning and sending warning honks to me. I pulled into the parking lot just in time to see the sign pinned to the pump that they are OUT OF GAS. Out of gas! It was at this point that I nearly cried and turned around to go home. But I didn't, because I had invested too much into the day already by creating an NSYNC playlist on my phone to get me through the day that should've been a snow day.
I finally got to work after finding a gas station WITH GAS and barely surviving a jaunt down an unplowed road, and I walked in to discover nearly everyone had called off. It's ok though, because I had my coffee and my NYSNC playlist and my sleep deprivation to keep me company. I spent the morning in a delirious state of slap happy giggles. I couldn't take anything seriously. The guy next to me said the name Seymour, and I was all "SEYMOUR BUTTS LOL!" I was a complete delight all morning. I got almost no work done but managed to drink all my coffee and several cups of tea while dancing in my swivel chair to 90s boy bands.
I finally packed up shop and went home, where I was greeted with a box from Erika featuring a SNUGGIE. I have been wanting a snuggie since before snuggies existed. And James ran errands just long enough for me to stage my own photo shoot.
