So after a quick trip for dinner with a friend (away from said bridges, mind you), it was time to do what some people call cocooning for the rest of the night. Despite the mess on the bridges, though, I'm not expecting an ice day tomorrow, although I'll turn the radio on at the first alarm tomorrow morning, just in case. But honestly, it's close enough to break that I don't need a day off tomorrow, and the lost wages that would ensue.
Tonight's night in did give me a chance to catch up on almost a week's worth of blog posts, though; I've been pretty bad lately about starting posts and not finishing them until several days later. So that my work doesn't go for naught, I'll call your attention to what I've intended to talk about for the last week:
- A solution to the oil crisis and Starbucks' financial woes? Someone has come up with biodiesel made from used coffee grounds.
- Last week, I actually assigned some homework to a few of my saxophone students in honor of a notable day in music history that's being celebrated tomorrow.
- Read about some unusual ways to keep skin moisturized during the winter.
- A Texas Congressman wants to use legislation to outlaw the Bowl Championship Series in college football.
In the meantime, if you're up tonight and reading this right after I post it, cast your vote for tomorrow: Ice day, or not?
