gm everyone, we finally have snow on the ground here!
 
Nice! It's been a bit colder here, but no snow yet. Other parts of the country have had snow though :)
 
some of my friends a bit further north than me had a whole heap of snow yesterday and it massively reduced the productivity of our dnd (we use a video chat)
 
Hahaha
I find snow mesmerizing to look at. And I love walking through fresh snow. But I have yet to have to drive to an office in dangerous road conditions, so I don't know if I truly love snow or just some aspects of it :P
 
9:53 AM
seeing snow just makes me irrationally happy
Not that i play the game anymore, but around this time in the year GTA V "hackers" sometimes change the standard map to the snowy one and it would always make me smile like an idiot
 
10:29 AM
Yeah. My theory is that because snow is something 'special' here, it's usually associated with 'fun' memories. So seeing snow brings that back.
I don't have it that much with snow on TV or PC though.
 
10:44 AM
i don't normally either, i guess its because in gta its also unexpected
 
Yeah, that's fair.

Snow is associated with shoveling, to me.
Not a fan.
Morning.
 
2:33 PM
Fair, snow does mean some shoveling. But we always made that fun too (never shovel alone and have snow fights with hot chocolate after) :D
 
Yeah... for me it's just shoveling. :D
'Thankfully' we've had little snow so far though.
Pros: Little snow.
Cons: Spring drought.
 
Both are a bit problematic, I agree :)
 
Frickin' global warming.

Sigh...
Work has a nice 'fisc-free' program. You can get gift cards for big online stores, and they'll be taken out of your paycheck so you won't end up paying taxes over that part of your pay-check, which means you get a high value gift card with a whole bunch of discount.
My first time trying that went well XD
Manager: You can order those, upload the receipts in the tool, and it'll work.
So, I go to order 250 euro's worth of gift cards. Literally minutes after paying:
Manager2: Noooo! Don't order those cards, stop the press, the receipt thing is only for when you're ordering stuff like desk chairs and monitors. The gift cards need to be ordered through the tool directly.
Me: Oh well, I already paid but I can probably still cancel, they were good with that last time too. Presses the cancel button on the order, gets the standard 'we're trying to cancel your order and will e-mail you when it's succeeded'
This was just minutes apart.
I just got an e-mail: The gifts cards are already in transit and can't be cancelled. But you can return them for free! (Spoiler: You can not, gift cards are non-refundable). I just filed a bug report about the communication and I now have a 250 euro 'savings account' for online purchases, I guess XD
(And another 250 euro will be added to that from the gift cards I do get through the fisc-free arrangement XD)

Fun~
@Tinkeringbell You can return them for free. They just won't refund what you already paid. Still free to return! :P
"Sure, you can give us money. I won't even charge you to give me money."
 
9:31 PM
Smartypants
I'll keep them and buy apartment stuff ;) they'll be gone in no time
 
Pants made of smarties sounds unhygienic.
