It’s snowing at WordPress.com! To show it off, I’ve gone to the black background for a little while.
In Alexandria, VA, it’s a bit dreary and is spritzing off and on. This is important because I finally “renewed” my driver’s license. Which means a picture. I told the fellow who took it that my last 2 pictures were quite good (I’m not photogenic), so the pressure was on. He said it turned out good, but I haven’t seen it yet, so the jury’s still out. (VA no longer issues drivers’ licenses in person.) It will likely be quite a shock since I got my hair cut yesterday, and even more color was cut off. It’s really light. Maybe I’ll just pretend it’s platinum blond.
To celebrate, I made my yearly trek to the liquor store for my yearly bottle of scotch—Johnny Walker Red. I’m secure enough in my scotch drinking that I don’t have to pretend to prefer single malt. Besides, it’s a much more Christmasy color. The store also had Old Overholt, which I was tempted to buy just for the name. But I resisted.
And since it was a soup kind of day, I stopped at Panera for lunch—”grown-up” grilled cheese and tomato soup. To quote Sam Winchester in the case of the meadowsweet Christmas wreath, “It was yummy.”
