Hmm. Shall I try to go to work tomorrow? Which is worse - staying home with the Stooges, or hiding in my cubicle? Hmmm. This is a delima.
When we have Weather in the South, folks go nuts. They make a bee line for the grocery and strip the shelves. Unfortunately, I really had to go to the grocery after work today - the Stooges had glugged down all the milk. It was crazy at Kroger, ya'll! I thought folks were going to fight me over my parking space! It's hard to explain the craziness if you've never been through it.
A college buddy in Birmingham, AL (which is also due for Weather - it's sleeting in Mobile, ya'll) sent me the below funny. Some subliminal advertising for grocery (and liquor) stores....
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN BIRMINGHAM HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING milk and bread FOR HEAVY SNOW...WHICH IS IN buy milk EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 6 PM CST FRIDAY.

I did not go to the liquor store.
In other news....
There was a guy on the train this afternoon with these gargantuan waist length dreadlocks. He was a huge dude, and kind of scary. I tried to get a picture, but the train was packed and I couldn't do it quickly enough. But here's a lovely shot from another day:
Also, I found this lovely item on the back of one of the Giveway Workbasket magazines.
