"Oh the weather outside is frightful."

It's been snowing in Seattle for a week now. Grant it the last few days have been with lots of snow, covering anything and everything. And since I work retail I am expected to show up for work. Of course I'm only expected to come to work because of America's need to buy shit.

Don't get me wrong, I like the shop I work at. The woman who owns it is grounded and generous, but when the fuckin' weather association nerds say to stay home then by fuckin' golly we should stay home! Yet that is not the case that I've been putting up with for the last few days.

American consumerism is an addiction, clearly. 12 inches of snow does not deter the shopper from coming to Ballard and buying a fart machine.

What a bunch of losers.

However, I'm not signing off this post with that bummer sentence above, but with this!

Though taken on Saturday, 12.13.08, I still love the peacefulness this image brings.

Merry Yule and joyous Solstice to all, and to all a good night.
