I don't know what the deal is, but I feel really crappy. My back has been hurting for about a week now. I think it's from my Nordictrack. Something about the way that maybe I'm crouching over a little bit when I use it I think. And then if I've slept on my stomach even a little bit that just makes it worse. I have to force myself to sleep on my back or sides only!

The weirdest thing is happening right now. It's snowing! I know some of you may be saying big deal, but I can count on 2 fingers the number of times that I've seen it snow here in March in the last 31 years. It isn't expected to stick around. Hell, it was 70 degrees yesterday! At least I can say it snowed once this winter.

And if you haven't heard...

Pink is the new orange.

Is that a real orange???? I saw this post from my cellphone this morning and thought you put that up because of a conversation we had two years ago!!! That is insane.

I knew there was a reason I've never set foot on our Nordictrack!!

I thought of you this morning! CNN showed snow in McKinney. That's where you are, right? It was so strange to see snow in TX. It must be an event to have made it to national news. To pay my respects to snow-strewn Texas, I wore my "Don't Mess With Texas" T-shirt, which I love dearly. It's the old design, not the dumb looking new ones that look like MC Hammer designed them. Mine is old school.

Btw, is that a cross between a normal orange and a blood orange? I have never seen one. What does it taste like?

I hope you feel better soon. Back trouble sucks rocks.

I might actually LIKE snow if I only saw it once every 15 years or so. Sigh....

Thanks for the color bulletin. I had no idea! :-)

h - yep, it's real. It's a cara cara orange.

Now I think my back hurts because of standing at the Dylan concert. I thought it was the Nordictrack because my back starts hurting if I stand more than about, oh, 30 seconds.

a - Wow, we made CNN? Cool! The weirdest part was that we got that much snow so late in the winter.

The orange is a cara cara. They say the flesh is pink but to me it looks dark orange. They are really good - less acidic than regular navels.

d - thanks! I probably wouldn't like snow as much if we got it more often, so I understand why you don't like it!

I give a shit. I hate the word "dookie" though - you know that.

I would still like to see pictures of snow in Texas, though I'm a little jealous - seeing as how I only got snow once on one of the first New Year's when I lived in Addison Circle way back when.

I hope your back feels better. I hate back pain so much. I guess not many people love it...I hope it's better soon. I don't think I could ever fall asleep if I wasn't able to sleep on my stomach.

I can't believe it was snowing there-the weather has been pretty nice here in Houston, minus the wind blowing like crazy yesterday. It snowed randomly at my grandparent's house last year for Easter, and it was so much fun!

PS-I give a shit! =)

JC - that orange looks so good! I'll look to see if I can find anything like that here. I bet not though.

Hey, show us some of those pics! Love to see them.

You had snow. How sweet. I'm not being sarcastic, I'm jealous.

Sleeping on your stomach is really bad for you back, but jos does it too.

my co-worker came in today and said there was a 50% chance we were going to get snow here in Houston today...well, apparently "north houston"-whatever-I think she's a filthy liar...

i'm glad you posted pics after all. i remember it snowed in denton for christmas in 2000. i thought i had escaped the cold german winter (back then it got cold and snowy here) by spending the holidays in texas, and then we were snowed in. i loved it though.

and that orange looks good to me. :)

I hope your back is feeling better... I didn't realize how bad sleeping on your stomach was for your back! I LOVE sleeping on my stomach!
