Had a lengthy snowball fight with norgus_beesh and vikingkangaroo behind Park overlooking the Pond. I had really never done a snowball fight and feel like a more complete person now. Also: much fun. And trudging through the snow is a serious workout :)
Later we went to Sally-from-Park's room. I had dined with multiple times this j-term, but seeing all the Buffy boxed sets on her, so of course she went way up in my estimation. (She also has Gia, so at some point i get to borrow it to show Emma the boykissing scene.)

We watched "Anne" (3.01).
"I'm not great at taking care of myself."
"Gets easier. Takes practice."
And i got to say "And she does get better," because i've seen the three Angel episodes she was in.
Hanging out after dinner (with a mostly different crew of people) included my sharing yet again my holiday fun facebook story since apparently some people missed it the first time around. Kate thinks i should report them. The consensus was that the least that was called for was an e-mail to the group.
We watched Peter Pan. More commentary on that once i've actually read the book. (Also: Now i really wanna rewatch Hook.)
Friday: First day back at SCMA.
Monstrous pile of filing (basically nothing's been put away since i left) but of course i spent maybe 10 minutes on that. Oh Tryon Trip mailings, how no one loves you. Yes, i did spend almost all of my 7 hours working on that. But it's done, and this was my one 8-hour day. After this i'm just working a few hours each day. I ended up staying an extra half an hour plus for the training AJ hadn't had time to do with me, so i get paid an extra 45 minutes (AJ's declaration) plus she gave me an extra hour pay to make up for the fact that yesterday's closing made today so crazy. ::shrugs happily:: (Though i'm still anxious about the next two weeks.)
Nan left out a pile of Georgia O'Keeffe calendars free for the taking for staff, so now for the first time in a couple years i can look at my wall and actually see what day various dates are. Woot. (A lot of the art is underwhelming, but the practicalness makes me quite happy enough.)
hedy: so according to the kindergardeners at the willet school, Norwood is a country
The Christmas package from the Californians arrived after i'd returned to Smith, so my brother called with details of its contents and sent me the bits i wanted. It arrived quite fast, and damn the kid's got packing skills.
2-4 inches tomorrow? "Due to the impending storm for Saturday, January 8, 2005, the Campus snow emergency will remain in effect through this weekend."

I have so many plotbunnies for Metamorphosis, which is both good and bad. [I also have a slew of other bunnies/WIPs. Oh how i love the fact that i am on vacation and can actually get some of this stuff written.] One person said they didn't want "Trash" (for Firefly) so of course then i kind of wanted it, but the fact that i didn't get it is fine.
In the interest of giving some focus/direction to the swirling plotbunnies... Anyone have stuff they really wanna see me do with any of these titles? (Preferably not just sex.)
