GIve Me What I Want And I'll Go Away...

Wow! Bend is in the midst of a Storm of the Century here, with lots of snow and high winds. I've been having a great time watching it from my window this morning...lucky me! (Although I did venture out to snap this photo for the blog, boots and all.)
The snow started yesterday, so in celebration last night we dusted off Stephen King's "Storm of the Century" and watched an hour or so. It's a fun movie (a mini-series from 1999) and we have a tradition of watching it during big storms. It's four hours long, so it'll take a few nights to finish up.
My orange cat's real name is Andre Linoge (his nickname is Buddy), named after the stranger who shows up on the island just as the storm hits and says over and over and over again, "Give me what I want and I'll go away."
If you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it, especially this week.
Hope you all are having a great day!


  1. I just finished "44" and really liked it. It's supposed to snow a little today, so I'll have to see if I can find "Storm of the Century" to watch. Thanks for the idea and especially for the book. I just bought the second one in the series. ~SW
