This is what it looks like today, April 20th, at my folk's house in the upper peninsula of Michigan.  This is the backyard.

Note to self: must win lottery and buy elderly parents new house in warm climate.

I would, however, keep this house ready and stocked with food and weapons in case of a Zombie Apocalypse.  All that cold makes the zombies slow and easy to dispatch.

You know what you get after watching eight episodes of B5 in a row?  Dreams about Vorlons.

There's a new coffee machine system we're trying at the office and because I'm so very tired, I tried the espresso.  Not bad.  But even though I rarely drink coffee it's not really perking me up.  My system processes coffee at a million miles an hour but still hangs on to carbohydrates I ate four years ago.  Stupid metabolism.

I downloaded the new Green Day single and I can't stop playing it.  I'm very much looking forward to the album, but I'm not very happy with the marketing being done by Warner Brothers.  I pre-ordered the album some weeks ago.  After that pre-order there was an offer for a super-mega version with cool booklets and other stuff.  I don't really care about the packaging, but many people had already ordered a copy when they would've preferred the expanded version.  What cheeses me is that if pre-ordred on I-Tunes, there are bonus tracks.  Will the original cd pressing have any bonus tracks?  I don't know, but I'm rather pissed that WB is milking this and fucking with a very loyal fanbase.

How I wish Lookout Records had kept their shit together and not defaulted on their roylaties to Green Day.  I'd happily buy the vinyl version from them and be done with it, but the label burned their bridges with the band and I'm stuck with Warner Bros. shennaigans.

Good gods! April 20th and that much snow?

Although I must say, I do like the idea of having the house as a safe haven from any Zombie Apocalypse. I may need to talk to my parents about that possibility ...

Yes, that much snow. That's why they want to move somewhere south-ish.

As long as your parents have a chest freezer full of food, machetes and guns, and provided you can get there, you should be golden.

Have you heard if there's going to be another series in the UK with A. Lloyd Webber to cast another production?

My parents dread the word "hot". As long as the temp is under 20 Celsius, they're happy. And oh yes -- they have two chest freezers full of food, water from the lake (plus a manual pump to get it up to the house), and rifles, knives, and a forest full of firewood for the wood stove and the fireplace. Egads -- my parents are survivalists! (We have a sauna too -- we're good Finns ::nods::).

As for another series in the UK, there is talk of another series in 2010; 2009 was definitely going to be a year off. And considering the success of the last three, I'd be surprised if they didn't carry on with it!

*jumps into conversation*

So, in case of zombie apocalypse, we're all moving in with your parents. :D

Did you watch "I'll Do Anything"? And "When Joseph Met Maria"? I've been thinking of looking for downloads of those.

And we are not pleased with how BBC America is editing ADWD. Last night was the double elimination episode, and it was so confusing. There were the performances, followed by the first bottom three elimination, followed immediately by a second bottom three elimination. No explanation as to how they arrived at two different bottom three votes. :/

Snow! And it's almost May! That sucks!

On a tangent, I just may need to snag that icon. It's just so perfect :)

I got these from [ profile] eternalphoenix. She made a bunch of LOLcat icons, and they're all completely awesome. :D

Wow.. that's really... winter-y view.

They used to enjoy it and had snowmobiles and everything. But now they're getting older and digging out just isn't the fun it used to be.
