Left Me Out in the Cold Rain and Snow

Not enough snow here in Delaware for my liking. We are fairly close to the ocean, so we don't get big snowstorms often. Tonight, we've got ice. A little snow, but mostly the slippery stuff.

My mom tells me it was snowing 25 years ago today. Another year older.

For all the crap out there, I'm actually happier than I've been in a while.

It's all the little things that keep me going...the chicken teriyaki stir-fry I made for dinner, the Gnarls Barkley playing on my co-worker's radio today, my mom's story about the 40-year-old guy who comes in to flirt with her at work, and of course, my husband's contagious enthusiasm as he pulls a sled out of the storage closet with the intent to tie it to the back of his car. Yes, car sledding. Matt will drive around the parking lot tonight, doing about 10 or 15 mph, just so he can pull our friends around on a sled.

You should have seen the look on the cashier's face at Lowe's when we went down there to buy rope. She said, "You came out in this mess...to get...rope?" Well THEN you should have seen the look on her face when we told her where we were going next--to the grocery store to get ice cream.

And best of all, I found the song in the Geico commercial with the caveman walking through the airport. It's called "Remind Me (Radio Edit)", and it's by Royksopp. I think my roommate found it on iTunes. There are like 4 different versions. This particular edit is the one from the commercial. You know you want it.

Happy birthday to me.


  1. Happy Birthday! All and all it sounds like a pretty good day!

  3. Yeah the ice cream made me laugh. I wished you Happy Birthday in your last post - but two times is twice as good - HAPPY BIRTHDAY or GRATTIS in Swedish!

  4. I like that song. Just been too lazy to research it. Thanks for finding it. Happy Birthday.

  5. Happy birthday to you.

    It's coming down here in Massachusetts. And because of the low temps it's really heavy stuff and blowing around a lot. Brrr.

  6. Happy birthday!!

    Thanks for finding that song - I love those Geico commercials and that one is particularly good.

  7. Happy Birthday Hannah. May the coming year serve you with unlimited possibilities!

  8. Happy Birthday! We've got over a foot of snow here in NY-crazy storm!
