I had an oddly successful day today. I didn't get distracted as much as I usually do and therefore I got more done than usual (on a non-deadline, anyway). It was very nice and I'm hoping it continues for a while. Granted, it'll affect my blogging, but my boss would probably say it's worth it.
Getting home, however, was a bear. It's been snowing since 11 this morning, though lightly, so there was about four inches of snow on the ground. Then, I was four cars back from an intersection that was crossed by a lightrail line when a lightrail train stopped across my half of it and didn't move again. So, a four lane thoroughfare had to all turn right (the crossing street was one way) and go through central Denver to keep going. There were a couple other places where police were sitting next to a car with flashers and a bus with flashers, but in the long run, it only took me twice as long to get home as it usually does. Not bad, considering. (Not to mention, I do love having All Wheel Drive!)
Yesterday, I went to my sister's Superbowl Party (great game, by the way) and I brought artichoke dip (as usual) and a newly discovered treat, Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls. They are like Peanut Butter Cups, if they were made with marshmallows and dark chocolate. They're delicious, more like bonbons than cookies, and are very easy to make.
And finally, I rarely get to do or say anything that counts as "Geek Cred" but here's something I haven't seen anywhere else:
