CbL Gizzards & Lizards, Aliens & Outlaws, EP Paint It Black

It snowed yesterday.  We got about six inches-a huge amount for Virginia, but not for me as I grew up in New York with tons of snow.  It never ceases to amaze me how people here react to the news of a "big" snow.  I drove to work yesterday, yes the roads were awful, but I was the only one driving, so it was fine.  I'm sitting there reading the paper and they're talking about the lines in the grocery stores. People buying up all the bread and eggs like Armageddon is coming.  Oh and buying up generators and snow shovels etc.

This is every single time.

It makes me chuckle big time.  No way would I ever be one of those circling the parking lot, trying to get a space so I can go in and buy up a loaf of freakin bread.  Really? Do you really think you're going to be SO snowed in, that you can't get to the store? It's just so stupid.

Now I really do need to buy a snow shovel as I don't own one.  But did I rush out and buy one before the snow of the century? No.  But it's on my to do list for some day, when I happen to be at a store and I happen to remember I need one.  Know what I use now?  A dust pan.  Yup. It's lightweight and easy to use.  Works every time.  I cleared off my steps, and I cleared the end of my driveway with my trusty dust pan.  I hate that my driveway gets blocked from the snow plow, but what are you gonna do?

At least I have today off, so I can just be lazy and stare at the pretty snow.

It's also been a month since my dad passed away.  I'm still a damn mess.  My neighbor's dad had cleared my driveway for me while I was at work yesterday.  So nice of him.  Want to know what it made me think? That I no longer have a dad to do things like that for me anymore.  I put my head on the steering wheel and balled my eyes out for quite a few minutes.  I literally had a red dent on my forehead from it.  I was washing my face later going, what the hell did I do to my forehead, when I remembered.

My desk has all sorts of Dad stuff on it.  Pictures of he and I, pictures of him, just stuff for me to look at.  It's just way too hard.

All right.  Here is your silly bottle shot for today.

This is Colors by Llarowe Gizzards & Lizards, Aliens & Outlaws and Enchanted Polish Paint It Black.

I started with all Gizzards.

OMG! Isn't this stunning?????? You have to love the holo happiness!

Next I added the other two in a tape mani.  The corner of the glitter is too hard to see here, but oh so awesome IRL.

You can see the glitter in this last picture.  It's the black and white micro holo glitter and oh so cool. Am thinking I maybe should have done that area a bit bigger.

So do you buy up bread when it's going to snow?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
