YAY IT SNOWED!! Like six inches! \o/ And everything is wonderfully white and campus is so pretty, even if I'm stuck inside because stupid broken leg. I spent the morning watching happy movies & drinking hot chocolate while I did my homework, though. Yum.

I very selfishly want to sign up for holiday cards, because getting something other than tuition bills in my campus box is super exciting. And then I get to extend Christmas into January, when I come back to cheerful cards! But I feel terribly guilty asking for cards when I'm not sure if I can send any - I can't drive since it's my right leg that's casted, and I don't know if anyone's going to the store this weekend. We'll see, I'll hopefully put a poll up soon! I want to send you happy things. ♥

Here, have pictures of the view from my window:


First picture was taken when I moved in in August, second one was taken thirty seconds ago & has a weird dotted effect because it's too cold to raise the screen. :)

edit OMG someone is building an EPIC igloo below my window & I can hear the civil engineers yelling about the best way to make it structurally sound. I love my geek school.

SAY WHAT, WE WON SOMETHING?? YAY SHOW! I can't believe the shows they beat out, too! Just goes to show the importance of crazy obsessive fans. Actually, although I didn't care about the PCA at all (didn't even know they were going on, really) I'm very happy with the results. Glee! Inglourious Basterds! BBT! ALYSON HANNIGAN who I adore like crazy even if I never talk about HIMYM! I'm only surprised that The Hangover didn't win too.

Continuing my complete lack of motivation, last night they sent out an e-mail saying that the ice on the lake & ponds is now 6" thick so we can walk on it AND it showed several inches last night! So many people are skipping classes & work and just playing and it makes me so happy. There's an ice hockey game and people falling off the rope swing and just generally falling on their asses. Can't wait for tomorrow so I can join the fun. :)

IT'S SNOWINGGGGG YAY!! It's bitterly cold and miserably windy but there is SNOW, damn it. Good job Terre Haute, I approve of this very much, keep up the good work!

Yes, of course I have already run outside to catch snowflakes on my tongue, duh. ♥

How is it possibly December already?? Second quarter classes started yesterday and I'm already convinced that there is no way I can pass half of them, but we'll see. I have a weekend Wednesday this quarter which makes up for some of it. I'm just really ready for Christmas and the holidays right now; I've already hung rainbow lights around my dorm room and we've begun decorating the hall. (Although really, I have a feeling the rainbow lights are going to stay for the rest of the year because they're just that awesome.)

Speaking of the holidays, comment on my card post so I can send you something!! It will probably be lame but whatever, snail mail is always exciting.

Also, my culinary discovery of the year: vodka pie crust. Try this, it is AMAZING! Very light and flaky and buttery. The alcohol keeps the dough moist without forming the gluten bonds which make other doughs chewy, and it's much easier to roll out, too. OH THE WONDERS OF VODKA.

Basically, I have nothing to say here, but I did manage to use an icon that is relevant to both Christmas & pie, so I still count it as a win. Om nom nom pie.

P.S. SNOW, I WANTS IT. PLEASE TO BE SENDING SOME MY WAY.

So Awesome

I love every SPN episode ever, but I am still BOUNCING in GLEE. ♥

Important Things Which Make Me Squeeful:
1. Snow!! We got a good three inches on Tuesday, then a rock-solid ice coating on Wednesday, so a couple of days home from school. Prior to the ice storm, it was PERFECT snowball snow, too. ♥
Oh. But not so much love for spending forty minutes hacking my car out this morning.
2. Jared being RIDICULOUSLY STRONG is such a fucking turn-on, I cannot even describe. 335 pounds. Where is my Jared-benching-Jensen fic??
3. THIS PICTURE. Jared's arm. No, Jared's t-shirt. No, Jensen's happy-relaxed FACE. I cannot decide which is the best part, really.
4. Danneel on NCIS! How did I not mention this on Tuesday??
5. All of the batshit-crazy squee on my flist right now, because YAY. &skip=120 in less than 24 hours, though??

OH MY GOD, JUST TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU LOVE OUR SHOW & OUR BOYS.

A few thoughts on NCIS. Spoilery. Not very squeeful. :/ )

OH HEY IT'S SNOWING. Actual snow that's sticking to the ground!! Makes me realize how much I've missed Idaho's blizzards, but whatever, we got a snow day, which was nice. And hopefully we'll have another tomorrow, because I have been horribly irresponsible and haven't done any of my preemptively-assigned snow day homework. :)

I made a stuffed olive-and-garlic rib roast tonight, which was pretty good, but nothing really special. For dessert, though, I made traditional shortcake - the wonderfully lumpy, cakey kind, not that grocery-store fluff - and infused it with orange zest. I topped the cakes with clementine slices & strawberries, then drizzled them with a sweetened-condensed-milk/Grand Marnier/grenadine mixture. OM NOM NOM. This mixture is the best ever. I'll dress up an extra shortcake tomorrow for food porn photos.

EDIT: Strawberry-Orange Shortcake )

OMFG IT SNOWEDDD. I AM A GLEEFUL FIVE-YEAR-OLD. I've never gotten used to mild Virginia winters after Idaho, so even this half-inch will keep me happy for awhile.

...that's about it, really. Oh! Go join [livejournal.com profile] nowintheatres, because it's an awesome idea.
