Yes ladies and gents, it is snowing in Dallas. I know this is new and foreign for many of you, but rest assured- you are fine. Please, however, drive carefully (you know how you do when it's raining out or too sunny? Very cautiously? That's what I'm talking about). Thankfully, it is not that icy which is the kind of winter weather we normally receive here in Northern Texas. Already I would say I have at least 5-6 inches of snow on my car. Yipee!
As a life long resident of Dallas, I can remember actual snow days growing up. In elementary, we must have gotten at least 4 or 5. Sure, it was mostly due to the aforementioned ice, but still. I got to make snow angels, snow balls, and tiny (mostly brown or green due to the high mud and grass content) snowmen. Looking outside, I no longer miss my usual trip up north this time of year. Seems it has come to me. Thanks weather!
Now if only I had remembered to re-treat my snow boots like I had planned weeks ago!
Last night was the premiere meeting of the DFW bloggers and it was a lot of fun. I can't wait to do another one when I can drink and don't have to dash out early. A couple gems for you:
* "The only time 12" isn't enough!"- This was in reference to a story about trying to break down a locked bathroom door using a ruler at one point. Equally funny story.
* Something called I wear your shirt . Seems like a genius plan and I'm bummed I never thought of it.
* "Maybe her mouth's not very big"
-"You've got to learn to unhinge your jaw like a snake" - And no, this is not about what you think it is
* "I would stuff myself full of stuffing and sew my mouth shut" -On the prospect of working at Build-A-Bear
All in all, a very good outing. I had to leave early though, so probably missed several more incredible bon mots. My friend was hosting trivia at the local bar and I had to go after accosting him for the heavily male skewed questions last week. Really, this is a complaint about all bar trivia games. They are usually run and put together by guys who pick questions and categories they find interesting. Understandable. Yet, when you have a diverse crowd playing, you need to play to both gender's perceived strengths. He made up for it in spades though and our team won! Yea!! To be far, they were still general knowledge questions and our team was equally split- 2 ladies 2-guys. Everyone had the opportunity to save the team and get the answer to a tough question. I am definitely more excited about going if he continues to incorporate equal gender questions into the game.
