guess what made me inordinately happy the other day...
no, it wasn't the knitting, nor the fact that the Turtle Net Sweater survived its ordeal.
it was that, as I was playing a bit of Oblivion, I travelled to a town so I could fence some of my ill-gotten gains (whaaat? all the other quests are really hard.) and in this town, it was snowing. every so often the snow would make crunching sounds (although sometimes it made crunching sounds when I walked over cobblestones, but that's ok.)
and it made me really happy.
and then I felt silly, because snow in a computer game had made me happy.
but I was still happy.
right up until I got accused of murder and sent to jail. but, on the upside, once I was exonerated (read: escape, find real bad guy, real bad guy attacks you and then dies....or you load and repeat until he dies), I got his shiny chainmail.
and it was still snowing.
now if it would only snow in real life...curse you, balmy coastal ocean-driven weather patterns!
