Some people are just stupid....

If you're on the east coast, you're probably well aware that there is 5ft of snow on the ground. It's been snowing all day, and it's still snowing. I've been talking about a huge snow fall all summer and into the fall but I was seriously just kidding. Really, I was. I got my wish and I've been stuck in the house all day. This is not normal for me. I work 2 full time jobs and I'm in graduate school. School is out for the holiday and my hours at my second job was just cut for the next month....and there is 10 ft of snow on the ground. What's a girl to do? I finished the 2nd installment of the Twilight series, New Moon. I can understand why women swoon over Edward aka Robert Pattinson. I'll admit it. I'm 30 and he's in his early 20's...but OMG, I can't handle it. Yes, it deserved an OMG. I saw the first movie before I began reading the books. So, I'm picturing Robert Pattinson in my head as I'm reading and HOT DAMN! There's nothing overly sexual or graphic but it's all mental and he's sniffing her neck and my mouth is on the floor and I can't handle. I need me some of that. The best part...he's English! But, I digress. I've gotten completely off topic, back to why some people are just stupid.
...And they don't have common sense. You would think that when there is 20ft of snow on the ground and it's coming down pretty hard and steadily that everyone would just take the hint and stay in doors. After I finished reading my book and I put the beef stew in the slow cooker, I happened to look out the window. I live on a hilly main road and it normally gets plowed regularly, but not today. There were people driving cars...yes, that's right cars....trying to drive up the street. Now, if a big mass transit bus is having trouble get up the hill, why would you (the car) think that it would be easier for you? So, I found a source of entertainment with the cars who were trying to get up the street but couldn't. Eventually, they just backed down the street and gave up. They didn't get the memo, which makes them stupid and without common sense. Do they really need toilet paper that bad?
On a personal note: The last 3 weeks have been very stressful and it was all attributed to my class for school. Thank God, it's over and I got a B in the class. It wasn't an A but I'm relatively happy with a B. Stress makes me want to eat. I realize that and what's worse is that I'm identifying that why I'm eating, but I'm still eating. As a result, I gained 1.6, lost .6, and lost .2 these last 3 weeks. It's not as bad as it could have been but it's alarming because know what I'm doing and why I'm doing it but I'm still choosing to do it. After I've done it, I feel guilty. It truly is n enigma to me and I'm the one doing it. It's nuts. After 3 weeks of stress, the class is over and the weight has been lifted. I feel soo much better, and the only thing to do now is keep plugging away. That's the really the only thing I can do and not give up.
I hope everyone on the EC who has snow is enjoying it. The mid-Atlantic hasn't had a real snow like this in a long time. For everyone who isn't on the east coast and is, instead, in a sunny place with balmy 70o weather...don't tell me about it. I'm jealous. Thailand....4 1/2 months and counting.
