Rare Occurance

As I live in sunny California (Where it's always 72 and sunny) it is rare to have extreme weather.
 Granted I live near San Francisco, I put on a sweatshirt to go to the beach, but the unique climate makes it so our winters are generally pretty mild and our summers are warm,but not too hot, and rarely sticky.
That being said, the local weather casters are predicting the possibility of SNOW tonight around the Bay Area.  SNOW!!!  AT SEA LEVEL!!!  This California girl is VERY excited, though, I'm sick so I probably will sleep right through it. (Aided considerably, I'm sure by Ny-Quill)

Don't get me wrong, snow around here is not unheard of, but it usually limits itself to around 2000 feet, the local high elevations get an inch or so generally every year, but the last time it snowed at sea level here was 1978, my mom was in college.  This is a BIG DEAL.

However, if it does snow, the snow most likely won't stick, it hasn't been cold enough for that, and it probably will be less than an inch.  Still I'm excited.  I may have to drag my sad, sick butt out of bed at some unholy hour of the morn,but it will totally be worth it.

I have been really bad about posting, even though I told myself that I would post more this year.  I am about to change that my friends.

I have not been crafting a lot, but I recently purchased an XBox 360 so I have been playing more video games.  I just started playing Dragon Age Origins, and I LOVE IT!  It is an incredibly expansive and deep world, and I really can't get enough of it. 

I am teaching a friend of mine to knit, and I do have some sewing projects waiting in the wings.  There is hope on the crafting front.

In other news, I am officially out of bookshelf space, especially after I hit the store closing sale at the Borders on Union Square this Saturday.  For anyone who is not aware, Borders Books has filed for chapter 11, and they are closing a whole bunch of stores.  My friend Sam and I hit the sale on Saturday, and made out like bandits, the Sci-fi and graphic novels sections will never be the same.  : D

I have come to the realization that although I kindof like my job, and it pays well, I am not particularly happy in an office environment.  So today I took my first steps to find a better work environment for me, and I'm, with not too much hope, keeping my fingers crossed. I want this to go well, but I also don't want to get my hopes up.  If anything I knew I would kick myself for not trying, so I put my name out there.  Sorry if this is cryptic, I just don't want to give too many details.

My plans are in a state of shift, and I don't know what will happen, but I am looking forward to the journey.
