Houston weather

(no subject)

I've been ridiculously busy over the past few days, and this is the first opportunity I have had to post since last week. Sheesh. I had to delete the start of a post from Monday talking abotu the Superbowl party we had because it was out-of-date by now.

The weather here is grim. I hesitate to mention it, because I know quite a few people who have several feet of snow between them and the rest of the world, but it's been rainy and cold all winter long, and it's starting to get depressing. I'm in a funky frame of mind right now, since I woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, then had a lecture to give at a conference at 8:00 and then sat in training of a new computer system for five hours. I'm tired and I ended up not getting lunch until 3:30.

On the other hand, the weekend looks to be lovely. I'm going to see Wait Wait Don't Tell Me tomorrow night, a show at Diverseworks on Saturday night, and then a ballet reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet on Sunday afternoon. I'm actually rather shocked that I conned Graham into that one, as it's a ridiculously girly thing to do on Valentine's day. We're even going to the gay brunch before the performance and then to my mother's birthday celebration after. It's a wonder Graham hasn't left fleeing for the hills. I have Monday off, and I'm very much looking forward to doing absolutely nothing that day.
