forecast

okay, so between today and tonight, we're supposed to get up to a foot of snow. that's right, ladies and gentlemen, you read it here. actually, unless you're somewhere living under a rock, you've heard about it 100 times over by now....

last night, i went to play bingo for charity with some coworkers. it was looking bleak for me until, about 7 games in, i realized that i was 1 away from bingo, and within 3 seconds of that realization, he called out my number. people, let me tell you: you have never heard 'BINGO' exclaimed with such fervor as how i called it into the echoing hall (okay, i'm being dramatic here, but suffice it to say, it was no small victory). i made my way to the prize table and surveyed the goods that were left. i chose dinner for 2 at gertrude's restaurant at the BMA, which also included 4 passes (i guess those other two losers will have to go home without dinner;)) to the BMA itself and a signed cookbook by maryland chef john shields.

so, after sleeping in a bit later than normal this morning, i'm off to hang out with the illustrious 'kate krupnik' as we await the impending 'frozen tundra,' which, frankly, i'd be lying if i told you i wanted anywhere near me. i mean, really....old man winter, please don't come knocking at my door. i've got too much to do and no time for the likes of your frosty self....
