Too much time on my hands

Juggling practice: “Never had one lesson!”
(Update: Bar Juggling Scene)

Miscellany Monday

  1. This is my 6th day off work because of a freak October snowstorm. I love a good snow day, but man, oh man, I hope things get back to normal soon.
  2. Over 50,000 households in Connecticut are still without power since the storm on October 29 after being told that power would be restored to 99% by Sunday at midnight. Get them their power back!
  3. As terrible as this storm was, I don’t think our trees are to blame. Let’s bury our power lines rather than get rid of our trees.
  4. I love having power.
  5. With all this extra time off and no school, I have a rare moment of being caught up with my correcting.
  6. My son missed his bus today for the first time on the only day that I was home and could drive him. Coincidence?
  7. I plan to adimpleate my unexpected day off with chores that I have been putting off doing. (I’ve adopted this word at savethewords.org; the site is archived.)
  8. I am trying to learn how to juggle; I am trying to learn to be patient.
  9. I took a “How Nerdy Are You” quiz and scored “Not nerdy, but definitely not hip.” Nailed it. (I definitely gotta get back to work.)
  10. Oh my goodness. Tell me I never liked this Styx song from 1981. I think my nerd score needs to be raised by a few points at least.

  1. Rofl!

    6% scored higher (more nerdy), 0% scored the same, and 94% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is: Supreme Nerd.

    Ok, I knew I was a nerd, but… guess it’s a good thing I take that as a compliment!

    We’re having thunderstorms here in KS, the first rain we’ve had in weeks. I wouldn’t mind being snowed in for a couple of days though. I a little envious of your time off!

      Yes, I always love days off. These will need to be made up, though! I’m off again today–day 7. They think we’ll be back to work tomorrow.

    Wow, that is a LONG time off school. Glad you at least have power, though.

    I’ve gotta head over to savethewords.org. Nobody knows what I’m saying half the time anyway. Might as well through in an antiquated word.

    Ah, Styx. The lack of feathered blond hair is what’s WRONG with me these days… ;)
