Tuesday I met the slabs of granite that will be my new kitchen countertops in a few weeks. If you know your granite countertop materials, then telling you that it's a lovely specimen of "verde butterfly" will mean something to you. The material is predominantly black, with butterfly-wing intrusions of grey-green, and shot through with little traces of warm brown. The slabs are quite pretty, with no nasty bits to have to work around.
If I had to pick a favorite weather phenomenon, it would have to be fog. Something about the soft, dreamlike appearance it gives the world appeals to me. I love driving in it, as highway signs and lamp-posts slide into phantom-like existance, then fade into rear-view mirror oblivion, never fully real. Nothing like a cracking good bit of fog!

insisted on having me print up love notes from each computer to prove that everything was all set up and working correctly. I thus ended up composing the first love poem I've written in a shockingly long time--we're talking on the order of nine or ten years! It kind of sucks, but I might post it anyway; doing so would actually have a certain self-mocking irony to it, so that might be enough to convince me.
The weather forecast calls for wind, rain, and snow for Sunday... I thought it was March that was supposed to come "in like a lion?"
In related news, it's started snowing today

. I'm stunned by the way it combines being astoundingly good with how powerfully addicting it is. Yowza!
