The Universe is Rich in Mystery

It’s official. We are all miserable.

So far as of February 26, 2014 the Winter Misery Index for the winter of 2013-14 in Twin Cities is 177 points, or in the “severe winter” category. Of course there is quite a bit of winter left. The lowest WMI score was the winter of 2011-2012 with 16 points. The most severe winter is 1916-1917 with 305 WMI points. How many WMI points will this winter score?

But still, life goes on. Sometimes in more obvious ways than others. Last week my son’s aunt gave birth to her first child. And today my boyfriend’s sister gave birth to her second child.

Five other good things:

This week has been a busy one. Despite the life-sapping soul-sucking cold I made it out to a show at The Cedar Monday night. Tuesday night we celebrated a good friend’s birthday with pizza, beer and ice cream. Last night the boyfriend and I celebrated our two year anniversary at Scusi (which was unusually packed for a Wednesday night due to Restaurant Week). Tonight I get to see Kim Gordon’s new project, Body/Head, at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Tomorrow night I really hope to just stay in and do a whole lot of nothing. My book pile has grown. But Hayao Miyazaki’s “The Wind Rises” opens at the Lagoon this weekend, so we’ll have to make time to see that.
