today i started work on my giant igloo that will contain a mini-bar. i mapped out where it will be and stomped down the snow to start a nice floor of ice...
i have yet to decide how i am going to build the blocks. normally, one would build an igloo where it is very cold and the snow is like ice. not the fun fluffy stuff that people sled on. perhaps i will start making very small blocks by filling 3/4 of a mild carton. (the plastic gallon kind) i figure if i find a container, i can then pack the snow in and make it more solid-like. giant igloo fun. hopefully this new development of rain will just freeze things up...
and a side note: i am currently sitting here typing while eatting lime flavored tic-tac's. "why is this?" and "how did little jim come across lime tic-tac's?" one might ask. and to those, i would reply that one of the greatest people in the world, and incidently a friend of mine, ordered them for me from england via the web. they showed up in a medium sized package with a little boy (their candy shipping company)that looked perhaps dutch. he was drawn with very tight (uncomfortable for males) pants and was holding a large tray of candies over his head. incidently, he was also drawn with a flat top. mmmm....magical, wonderful, delicious, limey little tic-tac's....
"all the blue light reflections that color my mind when i sleep...and the lovesick rejections that accompany the company i keep. all the razor perceptions that cut just a little too deep. hey, i bleed as well as anyone but i need someone to help me sleep."
"if i could make it rain today and wash away this sunny day down to the gutter, i would, just to get a change of pace. things are getting worse, but i feel a lot better, and that's all that really matters to me."
