So, this is my life.
And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

it feels like sunday at the office. i'm the only person on this floor. mine is the only office light that's lit. all of the suburbanites are home shoveling driveways and playing with their snow-day-elated children while i, the only lawyer who lives in the city, has shown up to do some work. (also, i'm wearing JEANS and a button-down... wait for it... UN-TUCKED. i am a wild man.) and i pray that the office stays this way all day.
this is just one of the reasons that i absolutely love winter. and why i'll never be one of those facebookers who posts complaints about cold/snow/winter. so many reasons to love this time of year: the sweaters, the scarves, the gloves, and all the other fun accessories that this time of year allows. these things take up a substantial portion of my closet space, so during the appropriate season, i'm happy to wear the often.
another reason: Attipuss staring out the window watching snow fall. for hours. then taking a break to eat. then returning to the window.
and who can forget the coziness of home? the roommates all home at the same time, stupid CW shows on, a puzzle going on the coffee table -- if that sounds a little too Partridge Family for you, you should know there's usually a bottle of wine and some vodka flowing. during the blizzard of 2010, Shaunice and i spent days on end watching tv, cooking, and drinking. it was heaven.
before i forget, my number one reason for loving this time of year must be the brightness when it snows. if you don't live in an urban area, you might not be familiar. last night as i walked home from a lovely dinner with some of the girls from my office, the city glowed so brightly. at 8 PM it was almost as bright as daylight. it was uplifting and calming after another long day at the office.
makes me want another blizzard real bad.
