Yesterday when I went to the store for the ceremonial emergency stock-the-house-in-preparation-for-winter-storm all I wanted during this "snowmageddon" was my guilty pleasure: Canada Dry's cranberry ginger ale. It seems, as I was informed, it is a seasonal pleasure and went out of market on January sixth. Errrrr! I know, I know create your own. But there is something yum-yum about a qualified mixologist doing it for me. That perfect balance of healthy fruit juice and carbonation.
Then I got this weather report from a friend
Wait a minute here...it's only Tuesday. I got a few days till I am totally screwed--according to the above weather report getting screwed comes "Fri-Sat". Whoosh I'm saved.
Now I will commence with preparations for making snow cream. The exact reason never to be without milk when a snowmageddon hits. That's dessert to my homemade chicken pot pie.
Oscar Best Picture Viewing Update:
Is of thought that the nominating committee was smoking crack when they chose a few of these flicks
X Black Swan (good but twisted)
X The Fighter (my second favorite, and should be the movie to garner best supporting actress)
X Inception (hard to follow)
X The Kids Are All Right (I have seen turtles cross a highway at a fastest pace than this movie played)
X 127 Hours (third favorite)
X The King's Speech (my favorite so far!)
X The Social Network (only on the list because FB is so here and now)
X Toy Story 3 (cute but a story told over and over...did not make me cry and I cry at movies)
__ Winter's Bone
__ True Grit
