Look what happened to me today:

Snow in April

Icicles in April

Snow in Front Yard in April

Eight Inches of Snow Overnight

That’s right.  Snow.  Eight inches, to be precise.  It’s April the dadgum 23rd, and we’re getting bloody snowstorms.  I’m more than a little irked, in case you couldn’t tell.  The highway into the city was pure ice and snow this morning, on account of the town snowplows probably being packed away for the summer, just like me and all my winter clothes—I boxed them up the day before yesterday.  Freaking Canada.

I need a vacation.  Something tropical and ocean-y sounds about right.  *Sigh.*  If only I was already done with tomorrow’s last final exam (that sounded a bit redundant), I could hop on a plane and be in the Bahamas right this minute.  Maybe someday.

In other news, this afternoon, I was studying Canadian history, which proved to be so incredibly dull that I couldn’t keep my eyes open, so I dozed off and guess what I dreamed?  I dreamed that Heath Ledger never really died, he only faked his death as a publicity stunt {somewhat channeling Joaquin Phoenix’s crazy new self, only more extreme}, in the hopes that he’d win an Academy Award for his performance in The Dark Knight, which he did.

I woke up and honestly couldn’t recall if Heath Ledger was actually dead or not.  Turns out he really is, but now I sort of want to fake my own death just to see what sort of nice things people might say about me once I’m not around to hear them.

Anyway, the point of this is that I’m really behind on my studying now.  Inasmuch as I got an A+ for my overall grade in American Literature (I don’t know the final percentage but the rubric for that class says that a 95%-100% constitutes an A+, so I’ll go ahead and take the 100%, thanks very much), I sort of have high standards now for my other two classes.


Which means I need to end this post and go study for another 10 hours.  Probably I won’t get to bed until morning.

Wish me luck.

  3. Cristin says:

    Yeah, we got snow last Tuesday too and then it was 90 degrees one week later.

  4. Chloe says:

    Snow!! I’ve only seen snow twice in my life!!
    Good luck! But I know you don’t need luck, because you are the best, and you’ll do it great!

    My hubbie told me that it used to snow in Wyoming in July while he was growing up. Not every year, but every few. I totally said WTF when he told me that. (I might have to become a snow turtle)

  6. Holly Decker says:

    feel your pain. APRIL IS NOT FOR SNOW. thats just how it is supposed to be. nuff said.

    i think snowy april days make a vacation to Arizona seem that much more desirable, ya know? perhaps just having a get away in general after having a kid seems desirable.

    anyways, this is what i would say about you if you [fake] died:
    “i seriously don’t know how PK can go on… Camille was the best thing that ever happened to him. Camille and PK were perfect for each other. and i don’t know what i am going to do without her witty and crisp writings. she had a gift. i think we should publish her works… and make bank off of them… er, i mean, publish her works and donate the proceeds to her beloved PK… or her family. or the surviving readers of her [non] blog. we can make buttons for peoples blogs that say ‘i heart archiving life’ or something. gosh, Camille was such a beautiful person… why do all the beautiful people have to die? why not noncontributing ZEROS like me?? oh sweet Camille… its so tragic. i should call up Adell and send my love her way… i bet she is devastated…” etc.

    seriously though, dont you think you need to make buttons?

  12. Jami says:

    dead people are always angles!

    AND, good luck!

  13. jethro says:

    I KNOW!!, WTF!
    Snow in April? That’s nuts man.

    This global climate change thing is sure twisting the weather all to heck.

    At least the Rockies will keep the Pacific out of our backyards.

  14. If I’ve heard “SIGN OF THE TIMES” once since yesterday’s 8-inch dump, I’ve heard it 100 times. Why do old people always say such wise stuff?

  15. BTW, I love my octopus/alien in high heels! Always enjoyed having my fingers in many pies.

  16. Sarah says:

    The snow is gorgeous is that’s any consolation. I know it’s not… Weird dream about Heath. That was a really sad day when I found out he died. He’s a good actor and not bad on the eye either. Good luck stuying and congrats on the A+!!!

  17. ann marie says:
