Heh, my pal Kim D. has a hilarious post about how Mother Nature's been treating her pals here in Seattle these days. Love, love, love the anecdote about the news anchor, and I totally believe it.
I just called my dentist to leave a message saying there was no way I could make my appointment tomorrow morning, and guess what? Their outgoing message always says they'll be closed Monday! That was a first...usually I'm the one canceling on my dentist out of sheer dread, but now they're canceling on me. I am guilt-free!
