Snow Day?

All Virginia schools closed today. All Maryland schools closed today. Gallaudet University & Catholic University closed. Georgetown, University of Maryland, George Mason University all opening at noon.

George Washington University? Open on schedule. SIGH.

Honestly, I'm happy enough to be here since we finished Economics today. The final was this morning and I feel really good with my performance. Hopefully, this will lock me in at an "A" for this class.

We actually had one classmate--the math guy from my (bad) team--who decided that since we had classmates from PA and Annapolis, the test would most likely be canceled. We actually called him to get his ass there. He only had an hour to do the final, but hell...he's a math guy. Sadly though, his absence would have been beneficial to the curve.

Strangely enough, the professor is still teaching for another two hours. As you can tell by this blog entry, no one is really paying attention.

A Great Choice
The highlight of my week was meeting Bacchus from Family of Choice. He had an event in Baltimore, so I drove up and had dinner with him. I tried to show him the sites around the inner harbor, but everything closed and it was windy & 40 degrees. We ended up camping out at PF Changs for a few hours.

While the meal and conversation were both great, the best part of the evening was the desserts. The restaurant has this mini dessert sampling where each dessert is in a little shot glass. There were 8 flavors: carrot cake, chocolate cake, strawberry cheesecake, lemon cake, banana split, tiramisu, apple pie, and S'mores. I wanted to play it safe and each just order one, but not Bacchus. He ordered the whole sampling. God, I love this guy. This was the best choice ever. (BTW, these pics are not of our actual desserts, but ones I found online.)

Most importantly, we had a great time. I truly love meeting blog friends. They always turn out to be as much fun in real life as they are online.

Have a great weekend!

Can you talk my husband out of his very real fear (that manifests itself in unpleasant ways) about my meeting my blog friends in real life, please? It's really starting to bug me...

Almost everything was cancelled up here too. The theater that I used to work at is still having a show tonight though because the boss is more interested in getting people's money than their safety.

I love PF Changs too but haven't been to one in a really long time.

OK and it wasn't like I FORCED those desserts! LOL Although I really love a good excuse to order dessert.

It was a good time. I'll be back next year for sure! We'll make a blogger event out of it.

I have met nothing but cool bloggers. They, however, have not been as lucky.
