jedishampoo: (Saiyuki: Ikkou snow holiday)
DANG this weather is awful. Since early December it's been a constant round of snow, bitter cold, snow, bitter cold, snow and then bitter cold. I'm talking temps in the single digits F or even negative F, so cold poor Fuu just cries if she has to go out to pee.

I don't think I can ever remember such a horrible winter. (Seriously, Canadians, how do you deal with it?) I'm going back west as soon as I can. I am alternately pressuring and cajoling my mom to pack up and go with me, because I know she likes a constant stream of sunshine and palm trees as much as I do. Or, at the very least, a winter with temps that don't really go below 45. ;)

Oh, and ICE! I have fallen on the ice several times this year despite having boots with good traction, because it's, well, constant ice! But at least usually I manage to just bruise or scrape my legs. A few days ago I was walking Fuu on the street over two-inch-thick ice covered with slushy snow, because, well, SOME PEOPLE don't clear their sidewalks when they shovel. I fell on my leg and dropped Fuu's leash, and stupidly jumped up to chase her and BAM! Down on my tailbone. I just sat there in the street wailing in pain and calling for Fuu until she came back (good girl) and then couldn't hardly walk for a few days. Thankfully the NSAIDs the doc gave me seem to be helping and I can walk again, hee.

Seriously, though, be careful out there, anyone in the same weather as us!

So I wrote a valentine_smut fic, and a Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) fic. Man, first fic in a new fandom is always so hard! I may even post it, heh.

Oh, I may go to Macy's today because I need new socks. I've been wearing socks just to keep my toes warm and man, they wear out! I got so used to wearing open-toed shoes or going sockless all the time when I lived in Las Vegas.

Hugs, y'all!
