Weather Comparison

First up: Buffalo, NY.  The old hometown.  Your standard 4 seasons.
Minneapolis, MN.  Where lived after college.  Freaking hot and freaking cold.  Too extreme for me!
San Francisco, CA.  Our current home.  Perfectly moderate - my favorite.  ::Sigh::
Seattle, WA.  Our soon to be home.  Not nearly as moderate as SF, but MUCH better then B-Lo or MSP.  Has seasons.  Not too bad... I think I can live with this!

Blog Plug

My blog-hating little brother has a blog of his own now.  Check it out.

It's about bowling mostly, and even though I grew up in that family I still can't understand half of what he's talking about.  Oh well!

Question of the Day

Q: How many times this month will I forget to turn on the alarm clock before bed?

A: Too many.  I have lost count.

Shout out, yo.

Nate checks my blog everyday. This is for you buddy!
This was something like 6 years ago. We were drunk.

Speaking of Seattle...

So, ummm.... we're moving to Seattle.
Yep, you read that right. Someone at Doug's company is retiring in a few months and Doug has been offered a promotion to take his place. He has some big accounts in Seattle so work wants him to manage the accounts from there, instead of down here. It's a great career move and means more money as these accounts get transferred to Doug in the coming months.

Pretty much the only thing thats not ideal about this is that it isn't San Francisco, but thats ok. It is a lower COL area then here and its a great city.

Right now we are waiting on them to decide if they want us to stay here until our lease is up in July or if they want to buy it out and move us in the next couple months! I'd rather move sooner then later because if we stay Doug will have to fly to Seattle a couple times a month in the meantime, which would be stressful, and Bella would have to go to Dog Day Care while I'm at work, which would cost money. So we're hoping to move shortly after my parents come to visit in March.

Now we play the waiting game...

Oh, but there is a load of moving boxes that someone left in the trash room so I guess that means I can start packing any time now. Doh!

I need me some WELLIES!

Uggs are great but not particularly useful here in these parts. But wellies, those are the shizz around here! With all this winter rain I'm on a mission to get some wellies this weekend. I am not messing around, yo!

Guh, Part II

I made it to work and I am soaked up to my thighs.
Uggs are cool and all but I think I needs me some Wellies, stat!


50 mile an hour winds and pouring sideways rain. I can't wait to walk to work today.
