The mail

I know everyone loves to get real mail, not the crappy circulars or bills but real mail. Now imagine that the very first piece of mail you receive in your new home on the other side of the country is a package from the Nobles. I peed myself. The package was full of great stuff. For a moment I felt like Jeff Staple(sorry I'm a shoe nerd). Does anyone else remember me blogging about this piece a few months ago? It is now on my wall and it looks great. The stuff on the left is like collage on top of the paint, very textured and involved. I don't know if the word endure is meant to be an encouragement for G! but it is perfect.
You would think that a piece of quality, breathtaking art would be enough but look what else was in the box. That's right the new Igloo Tornado t-shirt and some fliers for the new show at the Black Maria gallery in L.A. This shirt is no cracker jack prize, it's quality, printed on an American apparel shirt(you know the really soft ones) it's amazing the detail you can get in a screen printing these days. The t-shirts will be on sale soon so keep checking the Igloo Tornado website.
Did I tell you that we bought a new car with AWD for the famed Vermont winters? It's a pacifica and it is awesome. It's basically a hopped up station wagon. Ohh look at the side of the house, you can see where they are updating the electrical box.

Chelsea won and so did Man united, Keith aka Rooney had a hat trick (kinda)

Went to pick up Shelby's table and your ex neighbor has his big ass boat infront of your old house. He asked if you moved and asked if it was out of town. You must of had a good relationship with them

ohhhh, i get it, the reason these aren't getting posted immediately is written right below this little box. i'm so fucking whatever that i didn't even bother to read the god damn fine print, well, just publish one of the comments and delete these last two and we'll go on our merry way pretending that i'm competent and can read and no one will be the wiser...

Good choice on the car. AWD is a big help. Your good to go until the snowfall is over 10 inches (which is rare) or we get ice (which is also rare). We don't get many of the big storms that track up the coast but we get 2 inches every other night. And the perma-flurries go from December to March.

I'm going to email the folks at Seven Days to add you to their blog rolls.

Scot - The new t-shirt is perfect, thanks a lot. I can't believe you sent me the piece of art i am so greatful.
Flatlander - Thank you so much, the winter has us a little worried(i can't remember the last time we actually had a decent snow in Oklahoma) everyones description of the "mild" winter you had last time is terrifying.

The key to surviving the winters up here is embracing outdoor activities. Don't bunker down. Skiing, sledding, hiking, skating. Do as many as you can. It'll make the winters pass much quicker.

Oh, yeh, and dress in a few thin layers rather than one think coat. Lots of thin layers is warmer.

If you survived tornado season, you'll make it through winters here.
