"instant karma's gonna get you..."

"...gonna knock you right on the head."

if this weren't reality, i'd be super excited about this long-awaited long weekend because i get to fly home. to texas. where it doesn't snow. and the temperature's an average of 50 degrees or so in the winter.

now, don't get me wrong. i am super exicited about getting to see my family, as i didn't spend christmas with them. but i was also super exicted about getting out of this weather for a long weekend and, perhaps, enjoy being outdoors without wanting to die. and i had every reason to hope for nice, mild texas winter weather as, last weekend, it was 70 degrees.

but no. no, no, no, no. in the immortal word's of em, "old man winter is one slimey bastard."

he's following me. old man winter, that is. the arctic front that blew through utah and dumped literally inches of more snow will be moving through the dallas area early friday morning...and my flight lands at 9:30 a.m. so now, i have colder temperatures (with humidity) and rain/ice to look forward to this weekend.

curses...a plague o' both your houses, old man winter!! now...i'm not sure what the means, but...i mean it!

now, i also don't know what karma has to do with this, but i'm sure he's playing a role, too. was it the old lady i didn't help across the street? perhaps the fresh-baked blueberry pie i stole from an open windowsill? or, worst of all, is it because i'm not hindu? either way, i'm sure he has something to do with this.

soon to be cold and then cold again, nama exits stage left.
