gettin' late . . . visitor afterglow

The boys left around 1, I guess it was. Why I'm still up I'm not entirely sure. Wonder what the chances of that snow day are.

Great to see both upsidedownblue and infinitepresent --- and maffick, too, though (as I said to her as she left) I hope I don't see her tomorrow.

Or, rather, later today, at this point.

I'm hungry. Is it breakfast time yet?

The champagne buzz has died away.

Very long day today... accomplished a lot. Shifted plans cuzza the impending storm. Can't believe it was today (well, yesterday) that homovegetarian was over here sipping coffee, eating sweets, and getting all finite on me.

Looks like Sardinia, Ohio may be under as much as two feet of snow by Thursday afternoon.

snow settles in; stuff sinks in further, through remote control

My but the droopy branches of that evergreen outside this window look wild & dramatic, weighted down with inches of frosting.

Not only did my kick-ass boss call this morning to say we got the snow day, but she had already called everybody else! Usually we divvy up the list. I don't reckon I've written much about her here, but TGP is somethin'. She works her butt off for us behind the scenes, and she cares more about being a human being with us than she does about controlling everything---even when that instinct/desire makes it harder for her to do her job.

Anyway. Spent much of today so far talking to vjsmom. Sounds like she's maybe [crossing fingees] going to be in a good space for my visit. Hope so! Our talk today, along with a recent tidbit from homovegetarian, are reminding me how much easier it is to see how other people have been treated badly than it is to see it in my own life. Here's to a new year of refraining from working to excuse those throwing shit at us! Who's with me?
