this is what i woke up to this morning: a completely hyper, overstimulated gus running around the house yelling "FOUR-DAY WEEKEND! FOUR-DAY WEEKEND! WHOO-HOO!!!" school was cancelled today because maybe a millimeter of ice fell last night and god knows no one should go outside during that kind of treacherousness. people in iowa are so laughing at us right now. thus, in a classic example of no-good-deed-goes-unpunishedness (on my part), gus is not at school again today. and he has taken it upon himself to irk his sister to the fullest extent of his capacity, just shy of the point of getting punished. big fun.
but i did learn something cool today--has anyone ever heard the urban legend about millions of atari games being buried somewhere in new mexico? it's true! see this site for all the gritty info.
