French toast

Atlanta, you are so charming, bless your heart.

It snowed last night, for quite a while. My evening class was cancelled (I gave my students homework, anyhow – no getting off that easily), and this morning my car was pretty darn coated. We have no ice scraper, so we did our best. Thank goodness for serious defrosters. And then I drove very very slowly to work, while all the other idiots drove quickly and fishtailed all over the place (the roads remained icy), and one particularly stupid person drove with hazard lights flashing, and then by the time I was very close, I had a little string of cars behind me, following me. So I suppose people weren’t as upset with my slow driving as I thought. I got to work on time, anyhow.

And then with so many people driving in from the suburbs, we had a little impromptu pizza party and were told to go home early. Not bad for the first Friday back from vacation.

As an homage to the exciting emergency, we ate some French toast, made with yogurt, as we have no milk. The yogurt made the french toast better, I think.

Kind of lovely, actually.

See? The roads are clear now, except in shady spots. I’m on the couch, working from home. I plan on watching Bollywood and knitting afterward.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
