snow. am i sick?

brian was dismissed from work early yesterday due to the winter weather approaching north texas. we ate our tacos. we drank a beer (famosa! why don't i remember it being so skunky!). then i started feeling all weird. i've been trying to catch a cold, i guess, but all i've had is a little ball of phlegm in my throat. i don't have some overwhelming head and chest number. but i get all muffleheaded dizzy when standing and achy on occasion. it's still here. what is it doing.

when we got out of bed, we found yet another winter wonderland. as a result, brian is not expected into work until 10am. hold on to your socks. it's a sight to behold (click on photos to see greater detail):

these are photos of the courtyard. we were worried the weight of the snow and ice might cause one of the branches of that tree to come crashing through our window.


here is a photo of our well-kept patio garden where we like to entertain with dinner parties during the summer months:


believe it or not, that's my car underneath all that snow!


here is oliver looking concerned about the snow-laden branches:


to get his mind off of it, we spun the plum:


an old friend lives 40 minutes north up in denton (where i lived for almost a decade). here are his photos.

trying to check up on cosmic cafe status,

i stumbled across this:

Oak Lawn’s Cosmic Café once was the center of the creative universe for brothers and native Dallasites Owen and Luke Wilson and their good friend director Wes Anderson. At that time the place, called the Cosmic Cup, was a quirky coffee shop for spiritual enlightenment under the watchful (presumably third) eye of Kumar Pallan. His friendship with the trio, paired with a dry wit and immense physical abilities (especially his one-arm handstands), led to his being cast in oddball roles in their various movies—Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and most recently The Darjeeling Limited.


i had no idea.
