Mother Nature is a Mean Old Hag

Well I guess my plea the other day fell on deaf ears as I have been listening to the wind whistle through every crevice in the house for the last 32 hours. I'm supposed to leave for Juneau tomorrow but I don't know how that is going to turn out because what this storm lacks in snow it's making up in duration.

Besides doing a whole lotta nothing I did some laundry, some homework, some packing for the trip that probably won't happen, took a couple pictures of the dogs.....



.......and wasted some time of Facebook. It's a great time waster. So a friend of mine tagged me for one of those know, the "Share some stuff about yourself" kinda thing. This one is called "Shuffle' and you put your ipod/mp3 on shuffle and write down the first 25 songs it plays in an hour. Well that was too much time for me so I just out it on shuffle and kept hitting next until I had gone through 25 songs. So since I don't like to waste my creative energies (lol) I'm gonna cross post the list here...cuz I'm so interesting and all, ya know.

1. "Taste the Pain" Red Hot Chili Peppers

2. "Get Up" REM

3. "Falling Free "David Gray"

4. "This is Where it Ends" Barenaked Ladies

5. "Kiss On My List" Hall and Oats (rofl)

6. Awesome God" Michael W. Smith

7. "Gold Dust Woman" Fleetwood Mac"

8. "You Outta Know" Alanis Morissette

9. "The Wrong Child" REM

10. "Broken Wings" Mister Mister (come on don't laugh, you know you like it.)

11." Listen to Her Heart" Tom Petty

12. "Carry on my Wayward Son" Kansas

13. "Bittersweet Symphony" The Verve

14. "I believe" REM (I have LOTS of REM)

15. "My Lovely Man" Red Hot Chili Peppers

16. "Warm Whispers" Missy Higgins

17. " Your Grace is Enough" Matt Maher

18. "Sue Me" Kurt Nilsen

19. "What a Good Boy" Barenaked Ladies (one of my most favorite songs ever)

20. "Falling Awake" Gary Jules

21. "Name" Goo Goo Dolls

22. " Le Vieux Piano" Edith Piaf

23. "Day By Day" From the broadway musical Godspell

24. "Careless Whisper" Wham! (Classic!!)

25. "Hand's of the Potter" Caedmon's Call

Go ahead and do this too if you have the time and the ambition to waste. It was actually fun. Post the results on your blog, or in the comments on my blog, or BOTH!

Hi Cathy, I just found your blog by way of Google and I have spent the better part of this weekend reading about your life in the Arctic. My husband and I live in Vancouver, WA but are considering a job offer there in Kotz. Neither of us have ever been there (although I was born and lived in Anchorage until I was 9).
I would love to have the opportunity to chat with you via e-mail to get some information about life there if you don't mind?

my e-mail is dthull1994 at msn dot com.
