TMI Thursday: Cabin Fever

If you’re looking for the Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament, please scroll down the page to the next post.

Except for a brief trip to Wegmans on Monday (the roads were terrible), I have not left my home since Friday afternoon. I do not count shoveling snow as leaving my house. Anyway, I figured that I would share some of my experiences being stuck at home over the past week.

- My official wardrobe of snowpocalypse/snowmageddon has consisted of pajama pants, old T-shirts and my Pittsburgh Steelers slippers.

- I generally wear contacts every day. They have not left my container case since Friday.

- There have been days when I haven’t brushed my teeth until the mid-afternoon.

- I rediscovered Frasier, Spin City and The Bernie Mac Show.

- Ziggy sleeps all day. He’s wide awake every morning at 5:00 AM and feels that we should be awake too; however, at 10 in the morning or 2 in the afternoon, he’s out cold.

- Our new place has the warmest showers. After being outside in the cold shoveling snow, I’ve probably taken 15+ minute showers all week.

- The sauna-like showers may also explain why my hands are extremely dry.

- I’ve shared bathroom stories in the past, but I’m not going to today. Except the fact that I have a preference of one of our three toilets. In fact, I don’t think I’ve clogged this particular toilet.

- For the first time as an adult, I live in a complex that has trash pick-up. So, I took out the trash on Monday night only to watch it sit all day Tuesday. How hard is it to tell us that there was not going to be trash pick-up? I wasn’t alone as many of my neighbors also had their trash outside.

- I’ve started playing chess online. I used to be pretty good but I am extremely rusty and have lost 3 of my first 4 matches.

- I have only shaved once in the past six days.

- I have spent way too much time on Facebook and Twitter.

- I hope to go back to work tomorrow...just in time for a three-day weekend!

I was just remarking that I've learned so much (especially about myself) during this crazy snow. Of course, my office has only been closed one day, so I haven't had quite as much time for pondering as you seem to :)

Shaving is overrated in the winter. I know. I live in South Dakota.

Its freaking snowing here in texas... First big snow in a while. I really wish i was at home in a hot shower and not at my desk.

BigSis - I'm at home again today as Metro and my bus weren't running. At least I'm being a productive member of society today!

Kate - When I drove through South Dakota a few years back, I remember thinking how few people shaved. (That's supposed to be a joke.)

Carissajaded - It looks like you had a major snowstorm down there. Did you have to work today>
