So I made a bomb-ass Foodgiving (what I call Thanksgiving) dinner including tofurkey, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, macaroni shells, a Moroccan vegetable tagine, and cornbread from scratch. Here’s a pic of the leftovers pre-devastation:
December 1 I got into a car wreck. Came out of it sore but ok. The police report has the other car was clearly at fault, so hopefully the janky-ass insurance of the other party won’t give me any troubles on fixing my car. Car wrecks are one of my two biggest fears in life and I haven’t yet addressed the psychological effects of the accident. It was cold, raining hard, my airbags deployed and knocked my glasses off (I’m pretty blind without them) so I was disoriented for a few. When I replay the horrible sound of the cars hitting and smell that acrid smell mixture of airbags, smoke, and metal, I start panicking and have to stop thinking about it.
December 4 it snowed in Houston for the 3rd time this millenium. It previously snowed December 10, 2008 and December 24, 2004. Before that, it hadn’t snowed since the early ’90s, and before that, sometime in the ’80s. So needless to say, we get truly ignant when it snows here. Everyone’s all enchanted and shit. Peace and harmony, bitches. This year was especially crunk because it snowed HARD and actually STUCK. I have never seen so many broke-ass snowmen in one day in my entire life.

Oh, I put some new sunset pics up at my Tumblr in case y’all like the sky and thangs…
