snowed in

Okay, there was no Thursday blog entry because I am a total hosebag, and that’s all there is to it. Um, not to say that anyone else is a total hosebag for not writing on a Thursday – because you all have, you know, lives and stuff – but I have sort of set myself the goal to Blog Whenever I Can, and when I fail to meet the standards I set for myself, I get to be a hosebag.

On Fridays I have all the excuse I need, because I go into Munich to work at the AHF and don’t feel right about blogging on company time. And today I was going to meet with the New Webmaster (yay! They found someone! That’s another entry in itself – the entry, incidentally, that I should have written yesterday) and then we were going to plan our vacation with H and G, which is yet another entry. Wow, yesterday I didn’t write because I didn’t think I had anything to write about. Stupid, much?

ANYWAY. No go. None of it, because the roads are insane. Because it’s snowing only a little, but the wind is so fierce that it’s snowing sideways, and there are a lot of places where you can’t even see the road. And trucks are stuck. We got past the one in Isen, but the one in Mittbach thwarted us (and the snowplow that was trying to dig it out) and we had to turn back. Mr Next Door didn’t make it to work today, Mr Down-the-Street’s car was smushed (he’s okay, but they have to buy a new car now), school is cancelled because none of the bus-kids (which is half of the students) can get into town, and it’s chaos. Dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria.

Which leaves me no choice but to stay home and put together a resumé and cover letter for a job I want to apply for. Well, no, I don’t want to apply. I just want to have the job, by some miracle that doesn’t require the whole application process, which I find absolutely excruciating. Gurk. So um, this is me, stalling. You know what? I’m tired. Maybe I’ll take a nap, and put the application together later.
