People are going back to town or traveling for New Year's xD

We're getting ready to head out to breakfast with the family and we're meeting up with more family.

And what's worse is that I apparently cried all the way there. Which is a loooong way....
SAKURAS BROTHER. YOU CREY CREY.

Silly, people come in all sorts of nifty colors and what not. Being lighter skinned doesn't make you any less Filipino.

But yeah that does kinda suck :| If I went somewhere sweet I'd want to remember every second of it. I don't even remember a great deal about Disney to be honest.It was a good trip and I do have memories but nothing really detailed. Luckily my mom rented a video camera for the trip and we've got a big VHS tape full of stuff I filmed.

Same here in Michiganz. It better snow 5 feet and the roads be covered in ice for you to miss work.

The thing that sucked for me as a kid was that even when other schools in surrounding counties where closed, mine was always open. They had bus systems but my county couldn't afford them so our school remained open. Even during some of the worst snow storms of the year. Lots of parents would call in angry as all hell because the roads genuinely where not safe to drive on but the school refused to close. So most kids stayed home and their parents argued their ab sense as being necessary and shouldn't count against their record.

See if you miss so many days of school you eventually have to be held back to make up the time. So parents where NOT happy.

That's crappy.
Can you tunnel under the snow like a mole?

All we got here was rain. My mom made me sleep in the basement because she was being paranoid. And my brother stole my space heater and replaced it with the crappy one and didn't even turn it on.

We missed two weeks of school after Sandy. Our new schedule says that if we miss enough days because of snow we have to come in on Saturdays.

We got about 10cm of snow in my area, which was still enough to make me miss my bus this morning since I wasn't taking into account that the route from my apartment building to my bus stop would not be shoveled or plowed at all. It really sucks having to walk through that much show just to have to stand ankle-deep in it 20 minutes waiting for the next bus.

Oh boy your city sucks at snow removal too?

I remember when they left 2 1/2 feet on the sidewalks and told us to drive, people shoveled 10 feet of snow on the mayor's perfectly clear driveway in rebuttal.

I have the hot chocolate covered, but sadly don't have fuzzy slippers at work. Though now I'm tempted to try to find something fluffy to wrap around my feet. There's usually some kind of fleece sitting around on my coworker's desks... I'm sure they won't miss it >_>


ETA @Arc... it's not so much that they suck at snow removal as that my route goes through the parking lot of another apartment complex and a park. It's my frist winter in the neighbourhood, so I'm not sure if they will be clearing the snow from the paved walkways in the park at all. I hope so. I'll find out when I go home tonight anyways.

Re: snow removal, my area usually sucks at it. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the main roads were actually okay today, but I'm betting the back roads are probably still horrendous.

Fuzzy slippers and hot cocoa sounds excellent, nevertheless.

Might wanna hold off on that one anyway.

Laptops are coming down in price by like $100-200 pretty soon because of a lawsuit over parts. Essentially the company that sells parts for the screens jacked up the prices after 9/11 and was using fraudulent claims as to why; so the cost of laptops came up in price in order for the manufacturers to cover the extra cost.

Because of his lawsuit fraud business happening some amount of money has been ordered to be paid back and the cost of the parts has come down considerably.

So in a relatively short amount of time you'll be able to get pretty darn good laptops for $300-$500. Possibly even less depending on the brand and any specials happening at the time.

Might be worth holding off on if it's not something you need right away.

I just realized that I'm giving all of my friends something little with their candy except one. Two of them are getting Harry Potter buttons with their respective houses and one's getting a ring because she's not too into HP. And the one that I don't have anything for already got her button for her birthday...but now I feel bad.
