    We never had a snow day where I grew up in Canada, but we didn't have to go to school if it was less than 30 degrees below, so we would pray to the thermometer outside the kitchen window while we ate breakfast - lol! Here in So. Cal. no snow days - not even heat days anymore because of air conditioning but we have had days off due to fires.

    "Tonight I Wanna Cry"

    Alone in this house again tonight
    I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
    There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
    The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
    I'll never get over you walkin' away


    I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
    And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
    But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
    To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
    From my eyes
    Tonight I wanna cry

    Would it help if I turned a sad song on
    "All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
    Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
    It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
    But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

    I'm sorry this happened scienceboy. I don't know what else to say that might help. I hope things get better for you.

    We are on snow day #3 now! The first was a surprise in that the districts planned ahead. The second was a foregone conclusion even on Monday. Today was a complete shock! There are still 2 1/2 months of winter left and almost no snow days remaining. I guess when Mother Nature roars there isn't much you can do, but this will make for a llllloooooonnnnngggg third quarter.

    We had a wonderful snow day yesterday, too bad I was sick in bed all day long with a bug! I should have stayed home today, I felt so dizzy in class. It didn't help that in one class a child smelled of cat urine so bad that it stunk up my whole art room.

    I woke up this morning
    No real surprise there
    Could of been different, I guess

    Got moving, doing things
    And threw my scraps to my angry dog
    Wonder where that other dog went

    Got a day to get done
    The sooner, the better
    Maybe that lovable hound will be back around

    There are only two, you know
    And no room for others
    Just a little place set aside

    One must be fat and content
    To have gone off that way
    The others fairly hungry

    "Far Away"

    This time, This place
    Misused, Mistakes
    Too long, Too late
    Who was I to make you wait
    Just one chance
    Just one breath
    Just in case there's just one left
    'Cause you know,
    you know, you know

    [CHORUS]
    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I miss you
    Been far away for far too long
    I keep dreaming you'll be with me
    and you'll never go
    Stop breathing if
    I don't see you anymore

    On my knees, I'll ask
    Last chance for one last dance
    'Cause with you, I'd withstand
    All of hell to hold your hand
    I'd give it all
    I'd give for us
    Give anything but I won't give up
    'Cause you know,
    you know, you know

    [CHORUS]

    So far away
    Been far away for far too long
    So far away
    Been far away for far too long
    But you know, you know, you know

    I wanted
    I wanted you to stay
    'Cause I needed
    I need to hear you say
    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I forgive you
    For being away for far too long
    So keep breathing
    'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and, never let me go
    Keep breathing
    'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and, never let me go
    Keep breathing
    Hold on to me and, never let me go
    Keep breathing
    Hold on to me and, never let me go

    Taylor Swift - White horse

    Say you're sorry
    That face of an angel comes out
    Just when you need it to
    As I pace back and forth all this time
    'Cause I honestly believed in you
    Holding on,
    The days drag on
    Stupid girl
    I should have known, I should have known

    That I'm not a princess
    This ain't a fairytale
    I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
    Lead her up the stairwell
    This ain't Hollywood,
    This is a small town
    I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
    Now its too late for you and your White Horse,
    To come around.

    Baby I was naíve,
    Got lost in your eyes
    I never really had a chance,
    My mistake, I didn't know,
    To be in love you had to fight to get the uppper hand
    I had so many dreams about you and me.
    Happy endings
    Now I know

    I'm not a princess
    This ain't a fairytale
    I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
    Lead her up the stairwell
    This ain't Hollywood,
    This is a small town
    I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
    Now its too late for you and your White Horse,
    To come around.

    And there you are on your knees
    Begging for forgiveness,
    Begging for me
    Just like I always wanted,
    But I'm so sorry

    Cause I'm not your princess
    This ain't our fairytale
    I'm gonna find someone, someday
    Who might actually treat me well.
    This is a big world,
    That was a small town
    There in my rear view mirror,
    Disappearing now.
    And it's too late for you and your White Horse
    Now its too late for you and your White Horse
    To catch me now.

    Oh whoa whoa whoa-oh
    Try and catch me now
    Oh
    It's too late
    To catch me now.

    Ah, Friday is here & it's raining, which I don't mind at all. It'll probably rain all day, like on Monday.

    I don't mind it as a whole, but THIS particular weekend, I had some fun things lined up & I had to change my plans. It's been raining all day today & I'm sure tomorrow's going to be the same. :)

    Oh well...se la vie! :)

    No matter how tired I am, I wake up early. It's a habit I wish I could break!

    After clean up from last night's party, it was 12:30 before I got to bed. So why was I wide awake at 5 am????

    I stayed in bed for over an hour before giving in; I'm up for the day.

    What a nuisance!

    I'm exactly the same, Alice! I managed to keep myself in bed until 6:40 this morning; how sad that that is sleeping in! However, I do love my time in the dark house before anyone else is up--especially since we got our tree up yesterday and I put on the lights when I come downstairs.

    I got up at 7am! I ran all of my errands and started dinner in the crockpot by 10am. Now, I have to clean the house. I don't want to go out again because it just started snowing (BLEH!). I second the "I hate winter". Last night hubby and I put together a Gingerbread house. It came out cute. Just can't let the dog get to it LOL

    It's so easy to post a pic. Trust me, if it wasn't easy I wouldn't be able to do it LOL
    I upload my pics to photobucket then hit save/add links. Then, it gives you an IMG link and you just copy and paste!

    The only thing I can think of is posting a link to your album. I'm sure there are other ways but I've never used that site.

    Has the photograph been uploaded to the internet? IF so all you need is an URL to put inside the IMG tags. Also, knowing the filetypes that vbulletin supports is important. I think Kodak will have proprietary software to make their files different. Then again, you might be able to convert them to .jpg or .gif or .png, which are supported by vbulletin.

    Yesterday, it rained all day. My BF & I went to the movies & saw Ninja Assassin & Armored. Both were good! We also went to dinner at Shakey's where it wasso incredibly hectic & noisy! I hadn't eaten at Shakey's since I don't know when & I hate having a meal in hectic places.

    Today, it didn't rain at all. We went to the LA Auto Show, then walked around the Grove & Farmer's Market & had seafood. It was nice!:)

    The Truth - Jason Aldean

    Tell em all I'm on vacation,
    Say I went to visit friends,
    That you ain't heard or seen from me in quite a while,
    When they ask you where I've been,
    Tell em I'm out on the west coast where it don't ever rain,
    And that I'm probably doing fine,

    (Chorus)
    Just don't tell em I've gone crazy,
    That I'm still strung out over you,
    Tell em anything you want to,
    Just don't tell em all the truth,
    Yeah don't tell em all the truth,

    Tell em all I'm out in Vegas,
    Blowin' every dollar I ever made,
    Tell em that I must be into something bad for me cause,
    I sure lost a lot of weight,
    Tell em I'm out on the road with some old rock and roll band,
    Living like a gypsy can,

    (Chorus)

    The truth is that I'm asking you to lie,
    And we both know that it ain't right,
    But if you ever loved me please,
    Have some mercy on me,
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

    Tell em anything you want to,
    Just don't tell em all the truth,
    Yeah don't tell em all the truth,
    I still need you,
    Yeah that's the truth,
    I still love you,
    Baby that's the truth.

    We got that freezing rain and snow this morning. It took me 30 minutes to chip the ice away enough for me to be able to see out my winshield. Blowing snow in my face the whole time. Ugh!

    It was great! I live about an hr away from it. I've been to it a few times before. They didn't have the Nissans this year, which was too bad because I have an '09 Nissan Rogue & wanted to see all the Nissans...not that I haven't seen most of them before already!

    I took pictures, here's some:
