snow? really?

today is a gray and very snowy day in utah. which makes me infinitely sad, because my best friends live in southern california and have taken this moment to tell me that there, it is currently 64 degrees. and also it makes me sad because last week, it was 68 degrees on wednesday and i didn't even wear a jacket to my night class.

utah it very teasing. it is almost april and it is snowing. that is so terribly grim.

so instead of dwelling on the gray-ness of today, or on texas getting wasted by memphis, i (on a recommendation from another blog) have decided to make a list of things i really like about today. maybe that will help today to be better.

-psycho-t owning the second half of that game last night.
-a new 12-pack of diet coke in my fridge.
-whole seasons of 24.
-keeping up with ashley for almost the whole eight miles yesterday.
-learning about punctuation in usage and finally knowing (somewhat) how to use a dash (em, en, or otherwise)
-these awesome new shoes i bought. (
-new roommates in three weeks.
-skype chats with long beach.

so it is a pretty good day, regardless of the snow.

i've jumped on the bandwagon.

i'm a religious user of all things internet related. to date, i am a member of xanga, facebook, myspace, linkedin, and nearly every other networking site on the internet (in my defense, the only ones i actually use are myspace [occasionally] and facebook [not so occasionally], and i am not on any of the dating sites either). but my family has all recently joined blogspot, and nearly everyone i work with is always talking blogs, so i feel like maybe it's time for me to do so as well. mostly just so i can comment on their blogs as a registered user.

the reason i never started a blog is not because i am never on blogspot. on the contrary, in fact. i log on quite frequently to see new pics of cb or kate and read about bean's love for march madness, or just to read some of my favorite prose i've ever found on the internet here. but the real reason is that i'm afraid my writing won't be interesting. i live in a quite boring town in utah, and the most exciting things in my life are a half-marathon in four weeks, and a boy that i'm not even dating. alitris has a way of taking ordinary events and transforming them into hilarious musings, and i am not so quick-witted. i have no babies to post photographs of, nor do i create green-friendly merchandise. so i am somewhat afraid that my blog will not be interesting.

but then i remember that they are my family. and they will (i hope) think the stories i post will be interesting, the way i love to read about why bean's television was on for the entire day after selection sunday, or see the photo of our house from google earth. i think it becomes interesting.

i hope, anyway.
