Rain, rain, go away

~  Now that everyone who feels romantic and nostalgic about having a white Christmas has been satisfied, it's time for the precipitation (snow, sleet, whatever) to stop.  I need to drive tonight and would rather the roads not be like an ice rink.

+  Lovely holiday at Mom's, although I'm glad to be home.  Teleworked 5 hours this morning, did the inaugural load of laundry in the new washing machine, now baking pecan pie muffins.

:)  Someone gave me two zesters...because I mentioned not having one a couple of weeks ago.  Now I have the rasp-type and the traditional curl type.

~  Cream bourbon is very tasty.  And it seems like a good idea to mix with OJ (creme-cicle, anyone?) but isn't.  Curdles.  Tastes okay, looks revolting.

:(  The guy at Bin 607 thinks we are wine thieves.  We bought four bottles on Saturday and asked him to hold them while we went to the movies.  And when we went back, the bottles/bag were gone.  The guy remembered us but thought we took the bottles with us.  Uh, no?  We had the receipt so he let us get what we'd paid for, but you could tell he thought we were scamming him.  Presumably it'll show up properly in the inventory -- we are pretty sure they were reshelved.

~  The Hobbit was beautifully shot, but maybe 40 minutes too long.  With some painful acting by actors who are usually pretty good.

We've had ice and thunder all morning. Fun? The boys and I are about to go out (to see The Hobbit) so I hope the roads aren't too slick. I'm glad it didn't do this yesterday, though, b/c I hate driving up the mountain in ice.

I am glad for your lovely holiday!

How was your holiday?

I'm sure the boys will enjoy The Hobbit. It's visually engrossing and has lots of action...I just felt like some of the action scenes could've been trimmed.

I hate driving in ice generally. Nothing is really sticking but it's slippery out and traffic is bad. And since I'm a skittish driver in bad weather, it's better to just stay home. We had dinner plans, depending on when H&A get back from Mom's but they may be changed.

Our holiday was exhausting, lol. I fell asleep at like 8 last night on the couch, then moved to my bed about 5am and slept until after noon. :P

They've been waiting to see it, so I'm sure they will.

What I hate most about driving in winter weather is other drivers. I think we're ordering in pizza after the movie. Tired of Christmas leftovers already! Lol.
