Would this be Called Row or Sain?

Apparently Colorado is having an identity crisis in the weather department.

It rained ALL DAY yesterday.

And today it's half raining and half snowing... so basically buckets of slush are pouring from the sky.

I don't mind the precipitation or the cold... I've lived in Colorado my whole life, so I'm used to it snowing well through the spring.

But this is NOT normal Colorado snow. It's heavy. And soggy. And squishy. It's just bizarre. And we don't get whole days of rain. It's just not our style...

But, again, I don't really mind.

(This is probably because I am unemployed and therefore don't have to go anywhere in this weather... if I were at an office right now, I would probably be pissed.)

Mike, on the other hand, does NOT like this weather.

It makes him Mr. Cranky-Pants.

(At least I'm blaming the weather... he might actually be Mr. Cranky-Pants because of something I did, but I refuse to believe that I could induce crankiness, so I shall blame the weather.)

One big reason for his mood is probably because he can't ride his new bike...

He got a super-sexy road bike. It's all black and shiny (which I really appreciate because he keeps his bike next to the front door in the house and the new bike looks much better with our decor... and that's really all that matters...) and it looks awesome.

Plus, his last bike is failing apart at the seams, so it's safer.

(Which also matters to me... pretty and safe: check.)

We're trying to come up with a name for his bike (because that's what our people do).

My beautiful bike is named Miranda, and she is adorable.

His is NOT an adorable bike. It is manly and sexy and sleek and belongs in some kind of commercial for hair gel or deodorant (not really sure why... but that's just what I picture...).

So we're thinking a sexy foreign manly name. The best we've come up with is Sven... but we're still thinking about it.

This is very important stuff...

(I lead a very busy and exciting life.)

I Usually have Better Taste than this...

It is no secret that I am lazy. I'm the first to admit it. And I accept it.

But yesterday's laziness was not entirely my fault.

I was going to blog, workout, finish reading my book...

It was rainy and therefore the perfect day to do all of those things...

But did I do anything even slightly productive? No.

And why?

Lifetime Movie Network.

What the hell is it about the Lifetime Movie Network that drags you in and keeps you there for HOURS?

I sat down to see if anything was good on TV and three hours later realized that I had FORGOTTEN TO EAT...

What is it about made-for-TV movies that are "ripped from the headlines" about serial killers and sex addicts? (Separate shows... though I'm sure they have something about Sex Addicts who Murder...) And why do they have an entire station dedicated to these movies?

I've always thought that Lifetime Movies existed to prolong the career of 80s teen stars like Tori Spelling and Molly Ringwald (don't get me wrong... every other commercial featured either Spelling, Ringwald, or Alyssa Milano.)

But did I realize I would spend an entire day glued to LMN? No...

And yet, there I was. Curled up on the couch on a rainy day, forgetting basic human needs like lunch, engrossed in crappy TV movies...

Well, if I were single and owned two-dozen cats, we'd have a problem. But I'm not, so I'll just enjoy.
