An ice storm is supposed to hit.
I didn't learn this until I got to work this morning.
I need a few essentials. We're almost out of coffee (which is a gigantic no-no, especially in icy weather). We have a lot of 7-minute rice pouches, so we should be okay with food, though I've really been craving some baked potato action. We have firewood, so we should be set there. Okay. So mostly, we just need coffee. But that's a big essential.
There's something about getting stranded inside your own home that makes it more of an oasis and less of a place for simply showering and sleeping. I have a new snuggle buddy for just such an adventure this year - the Ralphinator. 

Very briefly, I considered starting a new blog. Well, actually I did go ahead and start a new blog. It seemed like a better idea. If they won't leave you alone, run to where they can't find you. It's still an option at some point in the future. However, I really really like my blog. I like the layout and the little widgets and the name of it and the background. It's mine, you know? And I don't really want to be run off just because some people are not on my preferred readers list. 

So, we are at an impasse. I'm going to stick to what's mine.
It may or may not come back to bite me at some point.
I guess that will be something fun to watch unfold, eh?

Oh, and just in case you're reading along and you missed it in my 8 Facebook updates yesterday, I'm seriously considering the East Coast when graduation rolls around.  Why, you ask?

  1. That's where most of the nonprofit jobs are centered (at least the ones I've seen so far).
  2. I really, really want to live by the ocean. Preferably near a beach that has hot, sunny days at least part of the year.
  3. I want to learn to sail. And eat fresh lobster. And have permanently rosy cheeks from the blustery, salty sea air.
  4. The rich foundation of American culture that can only be found in one of the 13 original colonies calls to me.
  5. Boston. DC. New York City. Everything in Virginia and the Carolinas - Jamestown, battlefields, museums, southern gentlemen, heat.
I'm still mildly (okay, very much) obsessed with The Single Woman blog. Today's advice reads: 
Sometimes we have to create our own closure. Sometimes we have to decide when enough is enough & walk away.
How much easier and better for us if 1000 miles is there to help a sister out?
I also really liked
“Don’t be flattered that he misses you. He should miss you. You are deeply missable. However, he’s still the same person who just broke up with you. Remember, the only reason he can miss you is because he’s choosing, every day, not to be with you."

Sarah, aka "Plucky", blogs on the reg, unless she's on vacation or there's a Pretty Little Liars marathon or she's mulling over the implications of the phrase "on fleek." She can't live without iced coffee, a portable phone charger, or equal pay. Say hello!
