The unthinkable has happened: the university's administration has actually cancelled classes BEFORE students (not to mention staff and faculty) got trapped on campus by worsening weather.

Toshi got so excited because I was excited about this news (can you say "shrieking and dancing around the kitchen in my pajamas"?) that he ran into my study and chewed the spine off my precious copy of June Hemmons Hiatt's Principles of Knitting. My only consolations are (1) at least he started with the spine, so the pages are still readable; (2) I was one of the lucky people who got that book on remainder at B. Dalton, back in the day, instead of going over the cliff of secondary-market prices with the rest of the knitter-lemmings; and (3) Hiatt is, even as we speak, finishing the revised and updated edition. And of course I can't help laughing: yup, the fiberhound goes straight for books about knitting, instead of all the other books he could have chosen to chew up.

Mug shot of Bad Dog No No (note incriminating crumb of paper on mouth):

Snow-day pictures coming later, with any luck.

And finally, seriously: sending good thoughts to tubbysnuggles today.

Oh, man, don't I know it! I was dreading going to work today, too: the department had an awful meeting on the schedule (ugly wrangling about department-chair candidates), and while I know it will still happen, at least it won't happen *today.*

(Deleted comment)
I needed that day so much--I managed to get caught up on my reading for all the classes through the end of next week, whew!

It shouldn't be funny, but Toshi with the paper crumb on his mouth made my day!

Yay, snow day! We've had insane amounts of snow this year and as I type this it's doing this hail-freezing rain thing. I'm out of black thread and have packages to go out but I don't think I'll be leaving any time soon.

Toshi makes my day, too, even when he's destroying things that I really wish he wouldn't. Of course, I say that because he hasn't gotten at anything *too* precious . . . yet . . .

Now the forecast is for freezing rain all day tomorrow, when I have to be at the office until 7:30 p.m. I hope the nice vet tech who's moonlighting as Toshi's dogsitter can make it for her two visits!

*pats Toshi on the head and gives him a kiss*

Careful--if he thinks you like him, he'll jump up and start chewing on your ear! :-)

The snow is beautiful when one doesn't have to go driving and sliding in it. Hope your day is productive and I look forward to snow pics. That little rascal puppy of yours. *goes out to check on the trouble my puppies might be getting into . . . like trenching the yard* Sheesh - no landscaping here. ;P

I almost wish Toshi would trench . . . he's a deep-round-hole digger. Maybe I could hire him out to a local fence company???

Toshi is an adorable little destructor, that's for sure. They always go for the one thing you can't replace! I wish we were having a snow day... it's a good day to curl up on the couch with a pen and paper or a book, but alas, no snow to make that seem like a productive use of time. ;D

How do animals develop that radar for things that can't be replaced? Toshi has never seen me touch that particular book; I haven't used it since he's been here. AAARRRRGGHHHHHH!!!
