Snow, that is.

I got my act together to go to bed, now that I've got the laundry started, looked out the window, and said, "That's . . . an inch of snow, isn't it?"

I checked the front door, where I can see the accumulation on the railing pretty clearly.

It was an inch of snow.

Sneaky bastard.

I'd dropped him a message to let him know that [ profile] teinedreugan and I aren't going to be making the trip down because of the snow and the sun throwing a hissy fit. He called up this evening to try scheduling a time for a phone call tomorrow to wish my aunt and cousins a happy Thanksgiving.

And we got off onto a random ramble, the way we usually do.

And he explained how he's been organising his company to prepare for a massive snowball fight against another office, across the street. Including massive all-company emails covering logistics, the declaration of the field of honor, loss parameters, whether or not it's legitimate to peg flag officers . . .

. . . yes, flag officers. The war's between the Institute for Defense Analyses and the Center for Naval Analyses. Apparently the rule against decking generals and admirals is to prevent unnecessary casualties among the people who give them projects. ;)

"I personally think they should be forced to listen repeatedly to the lyrics until they get a clue."

--Tom Scholz, of Boston / Downer's Revenge

(My favorite Tom Scholz quote remains, however, the time he was on a WZLX fundraiser thing, live and somewhere random (the Pru, maybe?). He got handed the mike, and said, "Uh," to it. The DJ was laughing at this -- "Tom, you're up on stage all the time, playing in front of thousands of people? Why so tongue-tied?" was the gist of his response.

The reply? Indicating the microphone, he said, "It hasn't got any strings on it!")
