I have to stop giving yall a hard time...

Next time the blogosphere and Twitterverse is full of people talking about all the snow they're dealing with, I will not good spiritedly poke fun of them and give them a hard time.

Apparently if I do that, the next day, what happens is this....



Granted, it's not as bad as what a lot of you cats are dealing with but still. This is fucking Dallas, Texas. We don't get all that much snow. So far the last few months, every time I've given someone up North a hard time about their snow issues... we end up getting snow here. I like snow, the cold doesn't bother me much because I don't spend much time outside but yeah. I don't own winter clothes honestly. The few long sleeved things I own are light weight and pretty useless when it hits those lovely below freezing down int he teens temps.

Though, I don't think this snow will be sticking around long. Which makes me happy because the roads are going to be a mess and people are crazy drivers enough on normal, pretty weather days, lol.

The Boyfriend decided he was going to build a snowman. So he did. He's 6'8" tall if that gives you an idea of the height of the snowman. ;)

Anyway. The Stars play tonight. We're playing Calgary. They hold the 8th place seat in the Western Conference with 67 points. Anaheim won last night which bumped them to 10th place and bumped us down to 11th. They're only ahead of us by 1 point though. If we win tonight against Calgary, we'll be back in 10th and over them by 1 point. Detroit is in 9th and they're tied with Anaheim with 65 points. I hope Detroit loses tonight so they maintain that 65, lol. Dallas is at 64 points so far this season. Calgary who holds 8th has 67. We have to freaking beat them tonight because then we'll only trail them by 1 point where as them winning just puts them 2 more points ahead of us. Which doesn't bode well for the Star's if they still want to try and make it to the freaking playoffs this year. Only the top 8 from each conference go forward. Despite Dallas not having the best season, thankfully neither have some other teams. Though, at least we're not the Edmonton Oilers with their snazzy 42 points. See Stars fans, that's something to be happy about. Sort of. ;)

I'm trying to find a template for the new blog. I can't find anything I like that's free that I can figure out how to make work, lol. Granted, I don't know much about doing that type of thing so it's not so easy for me but I'm trying to learn. If anyone knows a good place to get free (because I'm a broke ass bitch) blogger templates that look good, let me know please and thank you!


Happy Thursday!

GO Flames - the way we have been playing Dallas looks like a shoe in but hell still have to cheer for the good guys. I'll be watching in the cold hard north.

Great pictures. You can keep the snow! haha I live in the snow belt and it's funny because we hardly have any snow this year! Normally we have 6 foot + high snowbanks by now! Not this year. Weird.

Elle said...

Mouahaha! Strangely enough, we've had a mild winter with barely any snow, so far. Sounds like we sent it your way ;)

(watch it be the storm of the century here tomorrow...)

Cool slideshow! We got a bunch of snow here, but the roads are clear again. The piles of chunky dirty ice will be here until August though...
HHNT!
