Of course, I have pictures of the snow. How could I not? It has been a Winter wonderland around here. We had 17 inches of snow on the deck, so it must have been more on the lawn. I was enjoying being warm and ensconced in our office too much to go out and do thorough surveying of the snow. Anyway, there are more snow pics up in my Picasa gallery.
After I was done working, I then did the reading of The Pueblo Chieftain for AINC. Mainly the news was about snow and murder. However, two things tickled my funny bone. One was that the Alamosa mascot is the Mean Moose. This makes more sense than the Meloneers, because a moose will mess you up. However, I still had a hard time not giggling whenever I read THE MEAN MOOSE.
The other thing I found hilarious was that in a story about
Los Dios del Muertos el Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), there was a woman doing a presentation. What cracked me up was her name. I'll leave off her first name for privacy's sake, but her last name was hyphenated: Martinez-Martinez. Now that is showing your indepence! Hyphenating your name when your last names are the same shows you are YOUR OWN PERSON. Hehehe. I almost busted up during reading.
UPDATE: I've been informed by people more knowledgeable than I that hyphenated last names are a strong Hispanic custom. It also helps signify that the person was not an illegitimate birth. It's still funny, though.
