I woke up to this text message from my mother:I lol-ed in bed for about a minute straight. What is she, some 7th century lord telling his fair maiden to fear not? “Go not, my love, we shall be together in my kingdom.” WTF. My mom KNOWS how to text. This isn’t some typo where what she really meant to say is “DO NOT DRIVE TODAY.” She f*ing typed: “Drive not.” I am laughing as I write this commentary. We are supposed to get really bad weather in D.C. today. The government gave us the option to work from home today so that no one is on the roads when our ice storm starts— last week, some people were stuck in their cars for 14 hours trying to get home from work when the snow started. This city goes MAD when there is bad weather. We have the worst traffic in the nation– a new report came out last week– (yes, we beat L.A.), and when it snows, it’s literally armageddon. I got into an accident last week because of the damn roads so my mom is particularly fearful of me driving, hence the DRIVE NOT instructions. Classssic. Also I love that it’s all caps, a la Kanye. Also I’m woring from home so that’s nice. I’ll watch a lil Kathy Lee & Hoda, a little View at 11, a little Young & Restless and All my Children and One life to Live until Nate Berkus comes on at 2, then Ellen at 3. PS It’s February.
Oh and PS again- tonight is the GirlTalk concert @ 9:30 club. See you there.
