Asking my cats if they want to go out and play in the snow.

I thought I was the only one who nudged and winked.

Cinnamon / January 7, 2004 11:02 AM

Getting my $'s worth out of Netflix. And participating in some mutual nudging, luckily my cats can't wink.

cozying up on the couch with a book (or movie), a cup of hot cocoa, and falling asleep until spring.

At home: Sleeping, eating, watching TV and wishing I had an internet connection.

At work: Watching downloaded TV shows, avoiding work, working on my own projects instead of working, basking in the glow of a hella fast internet connection.

Studying Marvin Gaye philosophy, and raising an army of cats. Can someone knit them some sweet ninja hoods?

Shasta MacNasty / January 7, 2004 5:05 PM

Reading blogs, yakking on the phone with my friends, watching "Pimps Up, Ho's Down" for the upteenth time, eating my mothers homemade Grapenut ice cream, picking out my afro (actually, that's more painful than fun, but I look mega hot it's worth it), taking a nap...

...wait...did he say just one?

Garreth / January 7, 2004 7:22 PM

Staying in and having a biiiiiiig wank.

holden / January 8, 2004 2:24 PM

cooking. organizing the endless stacks/boxes/folders of crap (including going through the ridiculous amount of music on my computer & parting ways with half of it). i love scooping snow, i was having a ball on sunday! checking out old movies from the library and checking them off my list as i work towards my goal of watching all the movies on the AFI top 100

Naz / January 8, 2004 4:05 PM

Fucking sure is good.

stephen / January 8, 2004 5:05 PM

Attempting (in vain) to get a K1000 on Ebay, and thinking up unfortunate rap names.

stephen / January 8, 2004 5:07 PM

How about a easier link, suckers?

jenny / January 9, 2004 9:37 AM

making the darkest, spiciest hot chocolate possible, and drinking it from a nest of quilts while watching somebody else shovel new-fallen snow.
