Staying indoors

20 03 2010

It turns out it is snowing…  It rained all night and morning, and recently began sleeting and snowing.  With all the wet, my ceiling is leaking again, even after the roof was replaced.  Now it’s in my living room instead of just my kitchen, though.

Yuck, what a gross weekend outside.  Fortunately, I have Hikaru no Go and Dr. Who to watch.  (I’m watching the first season of Dr. Who that has David Tennant as the Doctor.)

I read a bit more Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.  I’m at the beginning of Book 2 now.  It finally feels like the book itself is beginning.  I’m not sure why it feels like such a slow read.

Snow?

19 03 2010

It’s 70F outside and a we’re under a winter storm watch because it’s supposed to snow this weekend.  I’m a little confused.  Hopefully it doesn’t snow.  The roads and drivers get scarier around here when there’s snow.

This week felt like it went by really quickly.  Surely one hour didn’t make that much difference in my perception of week length.  Hopefully the weekend will linger a bit, and I can enjoy some relaxation.

Apparently Hikaru no Go is on Hulu.  Kes recommended it to me as an anime I might like.  It makes me want to learn to play/play Go.  I had the opportunity to learn at Governor’s School, but I guess it didn’t really interest me at the time.  I learned how to knit, and to stitch pages together to make a book instead (apparently; I only actually remember how to do the knitting bit, not the making a book).

p.s. I was tempted to name this entry “Hikaru no Snow” even though that wouldn’t make any sense.
