Attack of the Yeti

Global warming seems to have given Oakvale a hall pass because we've had three solid days of snow. What, you might ask, is the favorite pastime of differently biotic youth when it is snowing outside? Making snow zombies? Cross-country skiing?

Nope. Snowball fight.

Snowball fights are pretty fun when you A). Don't get tired B). Don't get hurt and C). Don't get cold. We had pretty much the whole Haunted House crew out in the Oxoboxo woods bombarding each other. Tayshawn is pretty darn good with a snowball; he must have pasted me a dozed or so times.

The fight lasted for hours. One of the funniest things I think I've ever seen is when Kevin and I took refuge behind a snowbank to ambush Popeye and Tayshawn, only it wasn't a snowbank--it was Mal. He'd must have been hiding there for hours waiting for someone top come by, and when he rose up out of the snow, frost and ice clinging to him like a second skin, we were so startled we kind of just both flopped on our backs. Kevin had just enough time to scream "Yeti!" before Mal dropped boulder-sized snowballs on us. Mal paid the price later, because he's so huge all you have to do is throw a snowball in the same zip code where he's standing to hit him.

I guess it is supposed to stop snowing sometime later today, just in time to get the roads cleared so those of us that go to school can get there. Joy.

Is there anything more awesome than an undead yeti?
...
I think not... I think not...

Annette said...

As I was reading this post, the song "Snow (Hey Oh)" [by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, of course] came to my mind. You never talk about specific bands or artists that you like to listen to. Would you elaborate?

[I'm really afraid that you HAVE said something about it and I am going to get pelted with the indignant cries of devastated girls who think that I don't pay enough attention. If so, I'm sorry.]

:D

[By the way... it was 1:11 and you didn't make a wish.]

Gothic Temptation said...

did all the ice melt off of mal, yet? you are SO lucky you can't get cold.

Amy Strickland said...

I had to shovel out all of the cars and the deck today. I envy your snowball fight. The snow here in Northern, MA is a little too dry for snowballs or snow men.

★Teresa said...

Snowball fights -- one of the funnest past times of winter. No snowball fights this winter so far, although we have been getting snow.

Taylin said...

lzz said...

I so wish I could have a snow ball fight :'(. It would be fairly odd if it snowed in the Valley of the Sun. :(

But a yeti eh... could have used the ice as a shield man!

Tommy Williams said...

Annette,

I'm not much of a music person. Or rather, I like just about everything I listen to without being obsessive about it. Phoebe and Margi and more the music people. I don't know the song you mentioned.

Emogirl#55X-

Tak did not participate.

T.

Hi Katie-

T did. Mal says "hi".

It's been snowing like crazy, here in MA. But now its all iced over. If you threw a snowball at someone, you'd like, take them out. Because the snowball would actually be more like a huge chunk of ice. ...haha.

Karma said...

Oh you are sooo lucky. It hardly snows at all here. I think I am a bit jealous now. But fun!I bet it was fun!

davina said...

DAT SOUNDS SO AWESOME. MAL SOUNDS LIK A GUD PERSON 2 HAV UR TEAM

Nimbuschick said...

Ahaha, that's why so many people can go "Global Warming? That's a myth. Come to New England."

Did it snow again today in Connecticut? It snowed here in northern MA.

And Mal being in the snow wait for people to come his way, that is just funny. I don't get to have snowball fights because I live in the lower region of texas. Its hot even in the winter. : )

Man, we just got hit with some heavy snow last month. Closed down pretty much everything for two days... it was epic. I stayed inside and played video games.

Mal, you rock. And Kevin, nice comment, funny as heck. And Tommy, you should so do that more often, it really sounds fun. Too bad last winter didn't give us very much snow, but I got to have one fight with my ex boyfriend, it was fun.
