Can I just say how much I love this weather? Beautiful skies, mid-70's, and with just the slightest bit of chill in the breeze. Am soooo ready to start working outside on the garden and landscape...just one small problem. My back wants to stay in and relax.

The disc seems to have slipped back into place and I am now dealing with the inflamed nerve that was pinched. I wish I could find the words to describe the pain results from these muscle spasms. I can walk about 15 steps before they grab hold. Think about the last time you has a charley-horse in your calf...then multiply it by 1000. Okay, now you are getting close.The spasms have calmed down quite a bit, but not enough to allow me to do what I want to do- we had to cancel 2 social engagements this weekend and I am gonna adhere to my doc's orders that I stay off my feet as much as possible. To those I am cancelling on, again, I apologize.

I wish I could use this downtime to write, but I can't seem to concentrate on anything. Mrs. CB has been writing, and I am glad at least one of us has a smut muse. I am sleeping like a cat...as much as possible. So if you don't see me around, that's probably the reason. Work, muscle relaxers, sleep, hey to the wife, more pills, cats, sleep....life isn't so bad after all.

I had a miserable day yesterday. Anyone that has ever pinched a spinal nerve will understand how the pain often seems to emanate from the marrow of your bones. The cold, rainy weather did not help.

What helped? Trying to guide my better half through the inner workings of Live Journal...from posting, to friending, to uploading her new icon of Amy Ray's crotch (help me?!). Then, I watched Battlestar Galactica. Anyone else watch this? I am really enjoying it.

So I limp of to bed last night and it was pouring down rain. Thundering, flashes of lightning,wind blowing people down, all the good stuff. I wake up this morning to find it is fucking SNOWING!!! Belated April Fool's much?

I wanna go shopping today to get a lava lamp like [livejournal.com profile] heathers. But Mrs. CB just came back from errands and said the roads are Teh Shit. Looks like I am stuck here on Pope Watch.

What the?

It looks like they made some changes over on TWoP, and just in time. There is a separate Law and Order forum with subforums for each show. If you haven't been there in a while, check it out.

The power went out at work just before I left for the day. That was almost 5 hours ago. It's still out and is not expected back up until after 8:00pm which will push 2nd shift work into 3rd shift. Third will fall onto first... Throw in the thunderstorm/snow we are expecting and I think tomorrow would be a great day to call off. Oh, and I stabbed myself in the thumb while trying to rig a switch on my microscope. Kinda been a craptacular Monday.

We got home from the lake a few hours ago. It was a very nice, and short, service. Mrs. CB's nephews are in a rock band and they were playing tonight. We were going to stay over, but there is snow on the way and we didn't want to get stuck up there. I got this great picture of Mrs. CB's grandma, a very tiny woman, standing in front of a huge chair in Georgia. She was quite the traveler and adventurer. And she played basketball!

We grabbed a hatchful of groceries and are settling in for an evening of snow, wine, and Season 1 Millennium.

The interview went great and they called me back yesterday afternoon for the second one. I hope it goes well, and that [livejournal.com profile] lonejaguar is successful as well.

It snowed again yesterday after I specifically asked it to stop for the season. Mother nature is a fucking tease. It was crappy enough that we couldn't go get groceries, so Mrs. CB grabbed a Corona and I grabbed Mr. Pinot and we played "Scene It." I really love that game...especially when I have a buzz going. Even more when the wife is half lit.

Got up today with a mild headache and I completely deserved it. That is what one gets when they have popcorn for dinner.

We hit the store this afternoon and have been watching/listening to basketball. I managed to bang out my first drabble in more than 4 months. I need to start dinner before too long. We are having burritos...yum.

I also finally got around to watching the SciFi mini-series Battlestar Galactica and ya know, I really enjoyed it. And this is coming from a person who watched the original version as a child. The chick that plays Boomer...oh yes, she goes on my "gimme" list.

My girls won again last night. This makes us 20-2 overall and tied for the lead in the Big Ten. As long as they maintain their current level of play, the Buckeyes should see significant post-season play. How long till March?

But Penn State getting creamed by the worst team in the Big Ten just makes my week. Sorry about your luck there, Rene. My solution for you? More drinkers, druggies, and lesbians.

In other news, well I have none. It's fucking cold and I don't plan to leave the house all weekend unless I am tempted with whores and chocolate (not necessarily in that order.)

My pot roast (I am Teh Domesticated) is in the crock pot and my coffee is in hand.I just picked up some "Snickerdoodle" (cinnamon/hazelnut) flavored coffee at Stauf's. I really miss living so close to that place. I loved the smell of freshly roasting coffee as I walked through downtown Grandview.

I think I will write today.

Damn it is cold. It was -3(F) when I left for work with a -20(F) windchill. I have yet to get warm. Okay, I am ready for spring.

Rant Warning )

And Mrs. CB lost at poker while I won. That's the way it usually goes. The chili and cornbread were hits as was the yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting...which I am going to sample very soon.

Other news, my Buckeyes won again!! Still #3 in the AP poll.

Okay, time for cake.

Yeah, so you know your day is going to be a total suckfest when you open your car door and find all the stuff that is usually inside the armrest compartment sitting in the driver's seat. And the Red Bull Beanie Baby (cause I am a fiery Taurus) that usually sleeps beneath the stereo is thrown against the stick shift. Nothing was stolen. Apparently, the person who ransacked my car does not appreciate my taste for Broadway soundtracks and 80's compilations. Or they could not find my CD's mixed among the Poptart and Payday wrappers. See Mrs CB? Being a little messy is a good thing.

On the flip side of criminal activity, I bought a bootleg copy of a recent production and it arrived yesterday. It makes me feel kinda dirty, but it's okay. I like it.

It's snowing again. Another clipper. (I know [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent...electoral armageddon.) We are expecting another 4-6" as well as ice in Saturday. I hope it is shitty out that day. We are hosting poker and I really don't want to. However, if it's nice, I will be making chili and jalapeno cornbread. And margaritas.

Finally, my big guy, Smokey, has an eye infection. That's right folks, we have a pussy pussy in the house. When the wife gets home, we are taking him to the vet. Poor guy. And he is the only one in the house that is really watching the idiots on inagural parade. Nice to see W decided to go with the limo. Pussy!

Dear Alberta,

Thank you so much for the clipper you sent, overnight no less. While we appreciate your interest in our state, we do not feel that this association serves our best interests at this time. Please feel free to try again in late June.

Sincerly,
Cabenson's Lumbar Spine and Co.

A few weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent jokingly told me that God hated Ohio. I think she was right.

It started snowing about 7:00am yesterday morning. I had no problems getting into work- it was only raining at 4:40 am. The drive home, however, was atrocious. A trip that normally takes 20 minutes, took an hour and 15 minutes. Once I got home, the wife and I ate a warm meal and went out to try to clear the drive and sidewalks. About 8:00pm, it started to sleet. I went to bed with every intention of going to work, but when I woke up this morning...it was still spewing freezing rain. So I did something I have never done in the 14 years that I have been employed by Teh Hell Lab- I called off due to weather. We are still under a level 2 emergency which means don't go out unless you absolutely have to. Going to work when I start vaca tomorow...not so important. I later learned that we were under a level 3 (no travel or you'll be arrested) for a brief time, but it was downgraded to a level 2. I think that were it not for the airport, we would still be a level 3. No one wants to make the call that will strand thousands of travelers two days before Christmas.

So. Mrs CB and I ventured out to try and clean off the cars. It took 45 minutes before I had chipped enough ice away to even get the door open. We cleaned them off best we could and moved them as far up the drive as possible. Our neighbors have a tree that hangs low over our cars...and it is heavy with ice. We cleared and salted the walks (she cleared, I salted...I feel bad about not being able to shovel..really, I do) and had to help some dumbass that got stuck on our corner. Then we came in and ate leftovers...yummy.

I predict we will be staying in as long as I can make that final bottle of wine last all day. For those having a Green Christmas, I offer you:

It is windy here...fucking windy. We have 43 mph winds with 57 mph gusts. I half expect to look out the window and see that Gale girl and her spinning house. Hang on...


Gotta run. My candy cane lights are blowing down the street. Oh, those are the neighbor's. Never mind.

I'm a little bummed. The spinal nerve has started to pinch again and my leg bothers me when I sit too long. Not like it wasn't expected..it's part of the healing process. I wasn't planning anything this week except work, a little shopping and...babysittting (don't ask). And it does provided the best excuse for laying around and being non-productive (i.e. reading comic books and fanfic.)

Poor Mrs. CB...I think she may have the flu. I have chicken soup and some juice waiting for her when she gets home. The vaporizer is filled and I did all the running around that had to be done. I have pulled out the Jack Daniels and grabbed some ginger honey. But I forgot the fucking lemon. Too bad.

Oooh. We made The Weather Channel!! Go Windy Ohio!
