Lesson learned today: When it snows, rains, snows, rains, and alternates as such for several days, and then drops to 10 degrees and stays put, there is one critically important thing to remember:

Never. Never-never-never-never-never try to run and catch up to the bus, downhill of last week's burst water main.

In a word: Ouch.

Relatedly:

Lesson learned this week, in and around the current snowstorm/melting/freezing shenanigans:

When there is a large sheet of CLEARLY thick ice on a poorly paved road, it's probably a better idea to drive AROUND the ice rather than straight over it - there's no telling if maybe, you know, there's a GIANT POTHOLE in the middle of the sheet of ice that your car will PLUNGE THROUGH.

And have to be towed out of.

I hate winter.

*sigh*

Learned recently: As it turns out, "normal" is not, in fact, a mood.

So if you find yourself looking at a group of people, and realize that you can't perceive any moods from them besides "normal" this may be the source of a lot of your other problems, and you're probably going to have to find some way to fix that...>_>

It is if one realizes one isn't and wants to be.


Another related lesson: If even one's mother notices one's lack of friends and starts trying to matchmake ("What about Rivka? She's nice. Or Liz, don't you like her?"), one probably has a problem there as well.

Lesson: You might think you're ready to ski on the big hill, but thinking and actually being ready are two completely different things.

Consequence: I am now bed ridden with a very sore knee and I need crutches to walk. It sucks to twist your knee while skiing I tell you. I'm just glad I didn't break anything, and that the skis where designed to come off during falls. Still sucks though. So now I'm finishing up a drawing for a devart contest

Lesson: When painting miniatures, or just painting in general, and drinking from a glass, make sure that you aren't dipping your brush in your drink instead of water.

Extra Credit: Later, after getting a fresh drink and water cup, make certain the cup you take a sip from is the drink and not the water. Sad

Consequence: I now have minis shaded with soda and I that the paints I use do not taste good. I'm just thankful that my paints don't contain lead, or I'd be in real trouble.

A kid in my class fractured his neck while skiing a few weeks back. He wasn't paralyzed thank heaven, but he has to wear a neck brace for the next yearish.

I'm glad you'renot seriously hurt!

Today, I learned that, if you're attatched to a static-electricity-ridden TV via earbuds, DO NOT TOUCH THE SCREEN! I think it creates a circuit or something.

Geting a shock to the eardrums huuurrrtss....

O_O

Now THAT is a good lesson to pass on. *duly takes note*

No permanent damage, I hope?

Nope, just a ringing that lasted a couple minutes.
