Sometimes I just have way too much fun with things :D - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...

Sometimes I just have way too much fun with things :D
So it's a'snowin' in Alabama right now, where friend cleolinda lives. And Alabama doesn't know what to do with snow, since they rarely see it; thus pretty much going into fearful hibernation when more than a few inches come along. To make it worse, this batch of slushy fun is snow AND ice. Thus, in case of loss of power on the home turf, Cleo decided to make me her Official Emergency Representative to let people on the internets know she's doing okay.


You all know how this story's going to go, right?

I take up my Official Emergency Representative (#didcleofreezeyetomgupdates) Duties with gusto:

@foresthouse: NOT YET :D RT @cleolinda If for some reason I can't communicate any other way, @foresthouse will be in charge of DID CLEO FREEZE OMG updates

@foresthouse: SHE ATE A POPSICLE, THOUGH. (@cleolinda: you should never have given me this responsibility. HEE.)

@foresthouse: I HEAR SHE HAS A FIREPLACE (http://tinyurl.com/2bnwchu) SO SHE PROBABLY WON'T GET FROSTBITE. PROBABLY.

@foresthouse: IT IS COMING. *ominous drumbeats* IT IS COMING. RT @cleolinda: @foresthouse WE DON'T EVEN HAVE ANY SNOW YET! hee.

@NoelCT: @foresthouse It's good that @cleolinda has a fireplace. But if she runs out of wood, will she sacrifice her dolls for warmth?

@foresthouse: @NoelCT MAYBE ONLY THE ONES SHE HAS TWO OF. #dontburntheshefiansnoooooo

@foresthouse: BUT PLASTIC FUMES WOULD POISON EVERYONE! RT @cleolinda: @foresthouse "I HEAR THEY'RE FLAMMABLE."

@foresthouse: A MASTERMIND IN OUR MIDST, Y'ALL RT @NoelCT The fumes will numb perception, thus the cold won't be felt. #winwin

@curryalley: @cleolinda Don't burn the Shelfians! Instead, send them out to catch squirrel to roast over the fire so you don't STARVE OMG.

@foresthouse: @curryalley @cleolinda MMM, SQUIRRELS AND NUTS ROASTING O'ER AN OPEN FIRE. #wellshewontstarvesayslegolas

@foresthouse: NOT YET WOOHOO. BUT THERE MAY BE RIOTS. http://bit.ly/i2DQ82 RT @Eviey: @foresthouse So... #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates?

@foresthouse: @cleolinda @Maudelynn CHARGE YO PHONE. CHARGE YO IPAD. BECAUSE WE GON' HAVE AN ICE STORM UP IN HERE.

@foresthouse: THE ENTIRE SOUTH: *FLAILS* RT @cleolinda They're predicting from 2 to 8 inches of snow. http://bit.ly/fUsKqG

@foresthouse: THE ENTIRE SOUTH: *DIES* RT @cleolinda State of emergency declared in AL; up to 10" predicted http://bit.ly/i0YjcV

@foresthouse: DON'T WORRY CLEO OWNS A HARDHAT I PROMISE; WILL NOT LOSE BRAIN TO HAIL. RT @cleolinda Aaaaaand the hail begins.

@cleolinda: It's like a fine sleet at the moment. But earlier than we expected.

@foresthouse: ALABAMA HAS ACHIEVED: SLEET. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: "FALLEN ICE" (ambush your opponents) #MUA2 #XBox

@foresthouse: @CLEOLINDA IS PREPARING FOR: THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. GOAL #1: GET ARCTIC TRUCK. (http://tinyurl.com/25m2zug)

@foresthouse: @CLEOLINDA'S SISTER GIRL GOT STUCK IN ICE. JOKE ABOUT NEEDING ARCTIC TRUCK NOT SO FUNNY NOW, ALTHOUGH MORE APT.

@foresthouse: WELL NOW YOU'VE SAID IT... RT @Eviey I hope wolves don't escape from the zoo while Cleo needs to go get penicillin off a Russian freighter.

@foresthouse: Wolves? :P RT @cleolinda: @foresthouse @Eviey Happily, I'm allergic to penicillin. Possibly also to freighters.

@foresthouse: RT @cleolinda Oh, hey, there is definitely snow on the ground. I couldn't see it falling from my window in the dark.

@foresthouse: @cleolinda THE OMINOUS DRUMS NEVER LIE.

@foresthouse: RT @cleolinda It really is. RT @Kate_Hart: This snow is very sparkly. It looks like my deck has been glittered.

@foresthouse: @CLEOLINDA HAS BEEN DAZZLED BY THE SNOW. THERE MAY BE NO HOPE FOR HER NOW.

@NoelCT: @foresthouse If only @cleolinda knew that Twihards use falling snow to camouflage their sequins during secret raids.

@foresthouse: @NoelCT OH NOES. THEY ARE COMING FOR THE LITTLEST EDWARD!!! [HIDE YO DOLLS, HIDE YO TINY THINGS]

I'm sorry, Internetz. I cannot be stopped. :D

I'm having way too much fun.

This was BEYOND hilarious. I have a feeling I would have done the same thing given my position...though I am from Texas and saw snow for the first time when I was twenty....

IT STILL DAZZLES ME.

It's what any sensible person does when given a responsibility of this nature, surely? Hee.
beansalad From: beansalad Date: January 12th, 2011 03:27 am (UTC) (current file)
Oh yes. It is only a natural response.

And don't call me Surely ;D

So I've been following you via Cleolinda and just now see you are in DC, which I gather is actually VA. And I'm in VA too and we are the same age. Crazy smallish place, this Internet.

Hey, that IS totally a coincidence. Cool!
