B12 Shot: Snow Day and Boogie Night

From KB’s Baker’s Dozen.

The Rules: Create twelve thoughts and one picture—for a total of thirteen—to describe your weekend. Try using quotes, events, links to blog entries and websites, etc.

Let it snow…let it snow…let it snow, snowmobile and snow blow.
i. The weekend was a winter wonderland. (Don’t you love alliteration?) I got more than 12 inches…of snow, that is. We were blanketed with close to two feet.

ii. For the first time, used the snow blower. So much fun, I cleared both of the neighbor’s walks.

iii. More fun outside: On Sunday, some friends and I went snowmobiling. It’s been a few years since I’ve done this. Sno’ing is big fun,my cuz'n reminded me, "but it’s important to be safe." It’s easy to be thrown, slam into a tree or hit a fence wire. For around three hours, I went uphill, downhill and across several corn fields. And good news: your boy was not thrown! Saw deer and rabbits. I brought a pair of binoculars, but no camera. Next time I promise some photos.

iv. The storm did not ground UPS. On Friday I received two deliveries. The first was a replacement AC adaptor to power my laptop—gotta love those Best Buy extended warranties—and the second …

Boogie (2 Tracks) v. From Amazon, Boogie, a collection of remixes by the Brand New Heavies featuring new singer Nicole Russo. I already have most of the Heavies other albums, but am behind on several remix collections and singles. I'm also awaiting another Heavies order from Amazon.

BTW, “My name is Rod and I am powerless over all things by the Brand New Heavies.”

"Hi Rod!"

vi. Thankfully, I was not home to watch the Patriots pound Pittsburgh (Hey, I used to write headlines, LOL.) ...

vii. Or the Eagles soar across the Falcons into the Super Bowl. Warrick Dunn was ATL’s top performer: 15 rushes, 59yds, and a 10-yard touchdown with 2:02 left in the first half.

viii. But a brother will lead his team at the big game. I’m not an Eagles fan, but wish Donovan McNabb the best of luck.

ix. I’m kinda-sorta seeing one of the supa-models (lol) on this page. Kinda sorta. I’ll keep you posted.

x. Through extended IMs, learned much of the backstory on Karsh down in Hotlanta …

xi. And Bernard in my hometown of Chicago. I miss home, and can’t wait to have some Harold’s.

xii. Speaking of home, had a great conversation with my mom over the weekend. "You're exactly where you're supposed to be right now," she told me. I love moms, she always knows what to say to make things right.
