Today there was snow on the ground when I woke up. Not a ton, but a good coating. If you had told me, back in October, when we were having a freak snow storm which dumped feet of snow on us, that come January a coating, a dusting, of snow would be noteworthy... well I probably would have laughed in your face. But here we are.

Of course, it was gone by the time I got into the city (and its going to be 50 come Friday).

Gone just in time for me to get to work and be verbally accosted by a person who works for the law office we share a floor with. Accosted might be too strong a word, but apparently this guy TALKS! ONLY! WITH! EXCLAMATION! POINTS! Which is especially affronting when its someone who's never even smiled at you before and the topic they want to discuss is where that guy from your office went... you know, that one who died last year. Maybe its the way I was raised, but I don't yell-talk at people about such things (Cancer! But he was so young! Was it fast?!), I use more demure tones.

Now, I almost wish for someone to yell-talk at me, as the next few days are being spent sorting through countless resumes - for a position, for internships, for a teach conference - and good gravy, it is dry, tedious, boring work. This weekend will seem all the sweeter for it, I suppose.
