Really? I haven't seen it but it looks a little... dainty. Even for me.
I'm a bit biased, having read a ton of novels from this period whilst an English major at college. I would say that if you appreciate any similar literature from that era, tune into the first season. It's available free through Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.
My area got about 18" of snow, more in some spots due to those wind-driven drifts. All power cut out, so we had no heat, TV, phone, or Internet. Our attempts to stockpile milk, bread, and canned goods was only partially successful, so the neighbors and I came up with a plan: one dressed up as a deer wandering the neighborhood, and the rest of us waited in the bushes for wandering bunches of hungry idiots trying to kill the "deer". Let me tell you - cannibalism is very underrated. Anyways, we made new outerwear from wild animals roaming around (ha ha - **** you, pit bulls! Ain't so tough now, are you?! )
We originally built a big bonfire in the street, but people driving through kept honking because their cars would catch on fire when they tried to run over the fire. It was like automatic BBQ. You don't see many steaks and chicken wings voluntarily hopping onto the grill like that.
Unfortunately, today is work, so I had to put regular clothes back on, and leave the sharpened sticks at home. At least I got my newspaper.
Hey I wanted to ask you if your snowblower was a Leonardo DaVinci prototype
Sorry, meant to use that joke the other day, just thought of it now. Hope you're out of the snow ok and so forth.
Yes, my "old" snowblower was the first ever made, the test run. Kinda like the ENIAC of snowblowers. And a hearty LOLGFY right back at ya!
I think this whole snow storm nemo or charlotte or whatever the fvck its called is a sign. I was 'sposed to have a quite Saturday day and night alone with the wife, and some time during that update my resume and fill out the paperwork for a town job. Needless to say, kid stayed home, snow blower bust in to flames to spend all day Saturday shoveling, and the emergency work all day yesterday. No resume, no application. FML.
