I kept hoping against hope that Nemo would show up on our doorstep – after all, while Sandy was an unwanted visitor, Nemo would have been welcomed with open arms.   While those that got dumped on by boatloads of snow were probably cursing Nemo for his annoying visit, I feel like I’ve been dissed by Nemo. 

In my opinion snow is way better than rain – for one, it doesn’t flood the basement.  Also, it’s much more fun to play in – have you ever tried to build a rainman?  Ahem.  Plus we did actually invest in a snow blower and generator – neither of which have gotten used since.  Maybe I have a penchant for snow over rain because I grew up in the rainy state of Washington, and since we’re moving back there this summer I’m watching all hope of a good snow before we depart fade to black.  Le sigh.

Speaking of hope… Remember how I mentioned Princess Nagger’s first Amazon review on the Minecraft Pocket Edition last week?  A day or two later, they had the update available.  So naturally Princess Nagger thinks it was because of her review.  I’m happy to let her think that.

Speaking of Princess Nagger…  She auditioned for her first school play – they’re doing a revised musical edition of Little Red Riding Hood.  She was auditioning to be Little Red, or the Wolf, or Grandma – all leading parts (though she would have been happy to be one of the forest animals, just to be in the play).  She was honored to be selected as Grandma:


In this version Grandma doesn’t get eaten by the wolf, and it’s all about teaching the wolf about being nice and sharing.  She’s had two after school rehearsals so far and is having a blast.  I’ll be sure to record the play so I can share it with you, too.

In other Princess Nagger news…  I got a call the other day that a drawing she entered in an Art Contest has won a prize – when I asked her about it, she shrugged her shoulders and said her art teacher liked a drawing she did and had told her she entered it in a contest.  She said they were doing shadow or silhouette drawings, and of course she did one of a dragon.   She was tickled to hear that it won a prize, and I can’t wait to see what the drawing is.  We’ll finally get to see this award winning drawing at the art show next week – I’ll be sure to take pictures so you can see the drawing, too.

I saw this floating around on Facebook and it totally cracked me up:


Speaking of pictures floating around on Facebook…  You’ve heard the phrase “Jack Frost nipping at your nose”, right?  Bet you never thought Jack Frost is a deer:

Congrats to Princess Nagger on her award and for landing the Grandmother role. I’m not a fan of snow at all, so I’m glad Nemo didn’t show up. My sister actually bought me a plaque similar to the daughter one on your post. The only difference is that it says “sister…” Makes me laugh every time I see it. Happy RTT!

Thanks, Terra – I’ll pass along the congrats to PN! ;) I’m glad Nemo didn’t pay you a visit since you don’t like snow. Too funny your sister bought you a plaque with a similar saying – I should get one for my sister. ;) Thanks for being a Rebel! :)

3 JamericanSpice / Colette S February 12, 2013 at 4:31 am

Nemo totally dissed you and I remember when you bought the blower :)

I’m really wishing for snow for you though.

And congrats to the princess on scoring a lead roll! And also congrats to her art being selected to win! What talent.

And now have me wondering why things like that aren’t offered in our school.

The hubby and I did joke that since we finally bought a snow blower we’d probably never get the kind of snow we’d need to actually use it…who knew we’d jinx ourselves? ;) Here’s hoping there’s still a chance before it becomes hotter than the hinges of hell for summertime like it’s wont to do. :D

I’ll pass the congrats to PN from you – she sure amazes me every day with her talent! :) I would definitely wonder why things like that aren’t offered in your school – I’m so glad there are opportunities like that for PN…hopefully when we move West and she starts a different school next year she’ll have the same opportunities again. :)

5 Hilary February 12, 2013 at 6:45 am

Congrats to the princess!!!!

Nemo missed us too which I was thrilled about – especially since we were flying home from FL on Sat…

I was thinking about you and hoping Nemo would bypass you too, Hilary – especially since the weather guys kept saying that Nemo was following Sandy’s path. Luckily you ended up in a bubble, too! ;)

7 Tina February 12, 2013 at 7:31 am

Princess Nagger is shaping up to be quite the artist, to be winning awards and acting in plays. I bet she takes after her mom!

9 Claire February 12, 2013 at 8:16 am

How do you feel about Grandma not getting eaten? On the one hand, it’s good to teach kids about being nice but from a literary perspective, I don’t like them changing the classics. :)

Definitely mixed emotions about them changing things as drastically as they did – but Princess Nagger is happy she gets to eat cookies with the wolf! :)

11 Seriously Shawn February 12, 2013 at 8:19 am

Congratulations to PN! She is a very talented artist.

I had no idea what or who Nemo was, I thought you were references the Disney movie. I don’t watch the news and living in Florida means I don’t have to watch the weather, it’s warm and sunny all of the time!

Thanks for linking up with us and good luck on getting a little snow before your move.

12 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 12, 2013 at 8:43 am

Thanks, Shawn! I’ll pass your congrats on to PN. :) Since those that are they have been naming big winter storms, it’s gotten a tad bit confusing – especially when they picked a name from a loveable Disney fish for this recent winter storm! :D

13 Meryl February 12, 2013 at 8:41 am

Thanks for hosting and congratulations to PN on her up-comming role. I look forward to reading more about it.

15 Jan's Sushi Bar February 12, 2013 at 9:09 am

I, too, feel dissed by Nemo. You DO realize that your dual purchase of a generator and snow-blower has ensured that we won’t see any appreciable amount of snow for at least 3 years, right? The year we moved to Ohio, I bought sleds for the kids; we didn’t see a single snowflake that winter.

16 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 12, 2013 at 6:43 pm

I told the hubby that he jinxed any hope of snow by buying that snow blower a couple of winters ago AFTER all the snow was done (and I had been the one to spend hours shoveling the too long driveway). :) Then he reinforced the jinx by buying a generator AFTER Hurricane Sandy knocked our power out for several days and flooded our basement. So of course Nemo didn’t have any inclination to stop by our area since we were too well prepared. :D Washington State has gotten more snow over the past couple of years than we have here in PA, so my aunt is anxious for me to move back so the snow will never make an appearance again. You know that will happen. ;)

17 Michele February 12, 2013 at 9:42 am

Congratulations to Princess Nagger on both her accomplishments!! What an honor to win in an art contest AND be chosen to play Grandma in Red Riding Hood (now really-who does not LOVE Grandma!!!). As for Nemo–he visited to the tune of approx 1 foot where I live–just hoping this is it for the winter. If you really want it to snow–then take that snow blower and drag it down to the basement-or make it difficult to retrieve-that is sure to bring snow–as long as it does not come here!!

18 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 12, 2013 at 6:45 pm

Thanks Michele! I’ll be sure to pass along the congrats to PN. :) I totally would have loved to have gotten a foot of snow from Nemo – I’m loving your idea to make the snow blower inaccessible so it will actually snow here before the winter is done and before we move to a warmer climate. ;) And I’ll be sure to request from the snow bunnies that they only send snow here and not to your place. ;)

19 Cathy Kennedy February 12, 2013 at 9:50 am

I’m happy Nemo kept far to the north. I like snow, but the amount they got in the northeast is too much to suit me. Although it would have been crazy fun to see just as long as I could stay indoors where it’s warm with NO power outages.

Congrats to PN!

Who knew Jack Frost was a deer? Not me! Thanks for hosting and sharing today!

20 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 12, 2013 at 6:47 pm

The amount of snow they got up in the Northeast was crazy – but like you said, it’d be awesome as long as we could stay cozy and warm with no power outages. That’s the best kind of snow event! ;)

Thanks for the congrats – PN will be quite pleased with them! :)

I love that Jack Frost is a deer – they’re my favorite animal. :D Thanks for being a rebel, Cathy! :)

21 VandyJ February 12, 2013 at 10:28 am

I hope PN has a wonderful time in the play. Turbo was part of the Talent show at his school at Christmas. His part in the skit they came up with was short, but he had fun.
Our Jack Frosts tend to be squirrels and rabbits. They usually eat the snowman noses here.

22 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 12, 2013 at 6:48 pm

I’m betting PN will have a blast in the play – she loves being the center of attention. ;) I’m glad Turbo had fun in the talent show at Christmas – that gives me hope that PN will have fun, too. :)

It would be cool if you caught your squirrel and rabbit Jack Frosts stealing snowman noses at your house!! I mean caught them on film – not literally…in case you were wondering. ;)

23 Michele February 12, 2013 at 10:43 am

Love the deer photo.

25 Gina B February 12, 2013 at 10:59 am

I was SO glad there was no snow, on the other hand, there have been enough late mornings and early school exits that I think i’d welcome an ACTUAL snow day. Ugh!! Congrats to the princess on all her good news! You must be so proud.

We’ve had school closures twice this year – one because of Hurricane Sandy, and one because of freezing rain a couple of weeks ago…like you, I’d welcome an ACTUAL snow day with ACTUAL snow – that way the kids could actually play outside and use up some of that bottled energy vs. being cooped up inside. ;) Thanks for the congrats – I’ll pass ‘em along to PN…she does make this mama proud! :D

27 xmasdolly February 12, 2013 at 11:13 am

29 Emmy February 12, 2013 at 12:13 pm

How awesome for your daughter!! So cool she got a big part and awarded for her art! So so awesome! And yea if it is going to be cold there might as well be snow

Isn’t it exciting, Emmy? I’m sure looking forward to seeing her in the play and going to the art show to see what she won (and actually see the art piece that was submitted). I love that the school she goes to lets her embrace her individuality and fosters creativity. :) I agree – if it’s going to be cold, there might as well be snow to pretty things up around here! :)

31 Elle February 12, 2013 at 2:04 pm

My cat just walked across the keyboard and erased my entire comment!

We did get snow from Nemo and it left behind a gorgeous winter wonderland. It was just beautiful.

Congrats to PN on the winning art picture and the play! Way to go PN! Glad she isn’t getting eaten by the BBW, but I bet she could totally take him.

Apparently your cat either had something to say, or he wanted you to rephrase your comment – cats are pesky that way. And seem to love dancing or sleeping on keyboards! ;)

I’m very jealous of your winter wonderland – I kept ooohing and ahhhing over the pictures you shared on Facebook. Apparently I have to live vicariously through friends like you. :)

Thanks for the congrats – I’ll be sure to pass them to PN. And yeah, she could totally take on the wolf and win. ;)
