about smartcookie

i write about what goes on in my life. i write about things i think are funny. i write nonsense. i write about bodily functions.

i have a boyfriend/husband named nathan who loves video games. we get along great. about 7% of the time. any percentage greater is purely a curious statistical anomaly.
aww i love nate!

and as our story progresses, you may wonder who i'm talking about.

aside from courageous nathan, our main characters include:
oh. and i teach dance and like accounting. the end.

thunder, lightning, snow?

for those of you who don't live in western new york, we got hit with a freak snow storm (complete with lightning and thunder) thursday night and it's been called a "National Disaster" at worst.

over 400,000 people were out of power and now that its stopped snowing, our area looks like its been hit by a hurricane - trees are broken and now houses are flooding - the Thruway was closed for 105 miles! And then they did the impossible and closed UB for Friday! its the first time in 5-6 years they've had a snow day.

luckily, our apartment has power, but the people without power have been told it may take up to A WEEK to restore power.

here's my little view of the storm as it passed by us: covered cars

2:45pm - starting to snow (at this point we were all like "wtf. it was 60 degrees out this morning!")

3:30pm - Starting to get serious
More snow!

8:00pm - got home from beta.. is it going to stop?
9pm:  When Will it Stop?!

10:00pm - Tonanwanda has declared a driving ban and a state of emergency in Amherst
10pm:  State of Emergency

AFTER - school's cancelled

8:00am - starting to snow again :(
8am - more snow

10:00am - going over to nate's, i spy creepy looking trees over the tops of the cars
creepy broken trees

11:00am - jeremy has his own lake
jeremy's personal lake

SATURDAY 10:30am - broken trees around UB
broken trees

poor tree.. our tree didn't make it
