It snowed a lot on Saturday night and Sunday. I posted a few cameraphone photos on flickr.



first snow accumulation of the year



The weather is best described as “slushy” today, and saying that makes me crave a Slurpee® from 7-Eleven. Unfortunately, the afore-mentioned weather cancels out all cravings for said frozen beverage.

Sure enough, although it was, at its height, 63 degrees yesterday afternoon, today it’s snowing profusely.

It’s a very pretty snowstorm though, provided you’re looking at it through a window instead of standing in it. No snowstorm is pretty when you’re standing in it. It’s difficult to notice beauty when you’re being pelted in the eyes with it.



There’s one thing they say about lotteries: If you never enter, you’ll definitely never win.

I’m sure there are actually many more things that they say about lotteries, now that I reread that first sentence. Still, it sounds better that way, so I’m leaving it alone.

I need to start walking down to Avenue Q (er… 45th Street) every evening after work to enter the student rush ticket lottery. I want to see it again, and Ashleigh wants to see it for the first time. However, I keep putting it off because it’s annoying to walk down there, enter the lottery, stand around for half an hour waiting, and then lose. But really, if I never enter, I’ll never win.

This month might be a good time to try anyway, since April and May will bring spring break crowds to the city. I think it’ll be best to go on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, and preferably when it’s raining, snowing, or at least really cold. Of course, if I have to walk down there against the wind, enter the lottery, stand in the freezing rain for half an hour, and then lose… it’ll really suck to be me.

Well, 24in48 is over. I think it’ll be a while before I take any more photos with my cameraphone, considering that my Verizon bill will most likely be outrageous this month and my life is clearly not all that interesting anyway. Actually, today we’re planning to go to the Chelsea Flea Markets, the Natural History Museum, and the Park, so this might have been a better day for sweet hot cameraphone action.

UPDATE: We ended up going to lunch with my Uncle and cousins instead, and then going to the Clelsea Flea Markets. We bought a weird (extremely heavy) mirror, and then it was very difficult to catch a cab back home. That night I went to watch Desperate Housewives at Chelsey’s, and it snowed, and Chelsey, Sharie, and I played in the snow at the park and threw snowballs at The Gates.

Last night’s snow storm is over, leaving a foot and a half of fresh snow. All the people at the bus stop across the street are parents with their children and their sleds, waiting to take a trip to the park.

I saw ice on the ground today. That’s almost snow, right?

The temperature dropped a lot over the past couple days, so I’m pretty sure we’ll have snow the next time it precipitates. I think that’s either tomorrow or Sunday. Actually, I think Ash said it’s supposed to “slush” on Thursday but snow on Sunday. Obviously I’m not Christian, but I’ve seen enough movies to want a White Christmas anyway.

Last night we wanted to do something spontaneous, so Danny, Chelsey, Stephie, Vicki, Jontiel, Marchy, and I decided to drive up toward Big Bear, in the rain, at ten o’clock, with the intention of building a snowman.

Apparently it hasn’t snowed there in over a week, though, and when we arrived, we discovered that there was none left on the ground at all. In fact, it was a balmy forty-eight degrees in Deer Lick, where we stopped.

Still, the trip was a lot of fun, and now we’re just more determined to go again.

Last night I talked to Krysta about movies. Her favorite actress is Audrey Hepburn (which makes sense because Krysta kind of resembles her), and she mentioned that I should see Funny Face. I told her I’d add it to my list (and I did), and she said that her “list” is simply the AFI Top 100. After consulting the list (and deciding that I can’t count movies I’ve only partially seen or that I saw when I was too young to understand), I realized that I’ve seen thirty-five:

6. THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)
7. THE GRADUATE (1967)

23. THE MALTESE FALCON (1941)
25. E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982)
26. DR. STRANGELOVE (1964)
30. THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)

34. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962)
36. MIDNIGHT COWBOY (1969)

She’s only seen twenty-something. How many have you seen?
