One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

Why, hello old blog! I'm just sneaking over here to indulge my own piteous self-pity. Guess what? The entire town is covered in a blizzard! Every school in town is shut down, and many businesses, too. The university is closed, as well. Guess where my husband is? Yes, he is at his office at the university, having plowed through the snow in his trusty whatever-the-Mercury-version-of-a-Ford-Taurus-is. Tenure rocks. And, by the way, a few comments on my last post clued me in to the fact that some of you may not realize that I haven't actually dropped off the face of the internet. I'm just mainly updating the other blog, and keeping this one for sentimental purposes. And also for posting stuff that will be deleted upon full realization of how very pathetic this is.
