too much spam for me

in case you didn't know--it's snowing today.

i used to live just off the main road in The People's Rebuplic of Cambridge. it was nice. people shoveled, the roads were clear, sidewalks were wide so you didn't get car spray.

now i live in craptown, mass. i was so tempted to not come into work today. the road wasn't clear outside my house, no one had shoveled. it looked like the world was holed up.

and then i get to the train station and there were tons of people there. same thing at school. but all the public schools are apparently closed today. doesn't it make you wish you were a high school teacher.

-----------------

yesterday was a new low. my flatmate--we'll call him "d" here-- is broken. his back is out and so i've taken to carrying his packages up the stairs to the apartment. but yesterday i reached my limit.

"d" is getting drugs in the mail. there was a package which obviously contained a drug bottle, and if you shook the envelope you could hear all the pills rattling around.

he says they are for his "back". i'm dubious--i mean, we all get the spam, don't we? we all know what "drugs in the mail" are really all about.

either way, i'm no drug running mule.

new posting comments settings. too much spam for me. let's see if this helps.

Next thing you know, "d" will be asking you to carry mysterious packages on international flights.

you are soooo romanticizing cambridge. remember the apartment building on the corner and their giant snow pile? or how we had to do our own shoveling in front of the house?

plus there's no car spray on the bike path to davis :P
