It seemed a normal enough day today, when I went out to the bus stop just outside my apartment to catch the “Greek Village” bus to my work. It was 12.30pm. The temperature was around 40 F(5 C) when I last checked.
I went out. It was really colder compared to yesterday. I had to wear my gloves to save my palms from getting numb. There was the familiar and boring whoosh sound as cars and trucks sped by.
Then it suddenly turned into a dreamland. A hint of something white! What looked like tiny cotton pieces falling from thin air! It was snowing!
This was the first snowfall I have witnessed in my life; I was beaming, and I could keep my composure well within limits, although I did that Bill Murray-ish strut, which was a visible indication that I was so excited. I have never been happier in several months. So I just decided to share my happiness with my poor blog, which I have been neglecting since I started my grad studies.
I couldn’t take a video of this historic moment, but history will repeat itself, so I’ll take a video and post it the next time it snows.
Now, I have a tag from the one and only Miladysa – a tag called Random & Weirdly Meme. It is a bit weird that I keep getting tags about weird things everytime, but everyone is allowed to be weird once or twice, so it is not really weird to be weird.
The rule is to share 7 facts about yourself – some random, some weird.
#1 – I saw snow for the first time in my life today. (What else were you expecting as first fact?)
#2 – One of my favorite hobbies while in school was inventing nicknames with my cousin to bully my younger brother. I can remember about 20 different names from the top of my head now, but I’m sure there were more. My favorite one must be NKVKMKM, which had a very interesting full form. I won’t disclose it here.
#3 – I used to steal buttermilk from the refrigerator as a kid. The habit hasn’t died till date. Even today, I prefer drinking buttermilk when nobody’s watching.
#4 – I scored an almost high 28 on an online Asperger Syndrome test, but I don’t believe it.
#5 – I am really (unbelievably) bad at Cricket. I can’t play well, and I don’t follow cricket.
#6 – I’ve been using the same wrist watch for 11 years now. And I don’t even like it.
#7 – Weekends in Raleigh are boring because I don’t have a car, and there’s no public transit on weekends.
Now tagging 7 people is the part I don’t like. So I tag everyone who reads this. 😛
