The main character of the book I'm reading now is a baker who keeps mentioning her cinnamon rolls, and after 200 page of this I succumbed to the power of suggestion and made cinnamon rolls. I messed up a little with the yeast so they didn't rise as much as I'd hoped. They're closer to bite-sized than the big puffy rolls I was going for. But they taste good.

And they were well-timed treats, because we've had miserable weather the past few days. Yesterday was a constant switch between rain and snow that turned into a mess of slush, then overnight we got about a foot of heavy, wet snow. Thank goodness it's my day off work (because the school didn't close, even today), but there's still shoveling to do at home. There were several backups on our narrow little street when cars got stuck on the ice. Snow is pretty and all, and exciting, but I've hit that point where dealing with winter weather is dragging me down.

I'm still working on campus, and being there not as a student is a little strange. Thinking about stuff like finding classrooms and buying textbooks makes me happy not to be doing that anymore :) I've started the venture of shopping for appropriate job interview clothes, which as been less fun. I even need to get new stuff like a new purse and shoes (my current purse is so battered it's not doing me any favors, and I'm realizing I don't have any black heels).

Ah well. For now I'll go eat my cinnamon rolls and keep my toes warm.

Heys so I sent out a msg just now through Facebook so I'm not sure if you got it. I was asking if I should postpone my party tmrw because of the weather. Let me know if you'd still be able to make it! If enough people can't go, I might just put it off until warmer weather. haha

Yeah, I just saw it. The 5th works for me too. I was wondering about the weather- as long as the buses are running I could make it out, but idk about people who are driving. And who knows what's going to happen with Septa with the extra snow we're supposed to get this weekend. Postponing makes sense.

Looks like tomorrow is still somewhat "on" for whoever wants to come haha...I think as of right now only Liz and Stef are coming, and possibly my friend Emilie (I forget if you met her or not)...theres some other people who said they were coming but I'm not 100% sure now because of the weather and all, but you're welcome to come if you think you can make it here and back okay with the bus...if not, I'll definitely do something when it gets warmer again lol Let me know and I can give you directions for the bus and whatnot. :)
