Yet another snow storm has derailed my travel plans. I will be staying in town for two more days before heading off to the Berkshires for school. This is my fifth snow storm in a month. If it weren't for cross country skiing, my family, and hot chocolate, (and this stupid snowstorm), I'd be off to West Palm Beach rather than typing this. I guess the closest I'll be getting to sand and sun this winter is my Miniature Zen Beach Garden. Alas.
Tis the season to be freezin',

I had a successful shopping trip today. Winter sales are sweet, so sweet. I will show the spoils eventually. Right now sleep is paramount.
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you,
P.S. I finally cut the mop (aka hair, do, bouffant, etc). Huzzah!

I really love taking surveys, so I compiled a bunch of the random questions questions from the profile section of Blogger. Enjoy!

These babies are mine, all mine (insert maniacal laughter here)! I might have had a mini heart attack when I found them on Etsy. Ok, I definitely had a minor heart attack when I saw them on Etsy. I will most definitely be wearing these boots into the ground. My cobbler will be getting some more business. He has been fixing my beloved footwear for quite some time now. Thank goodness for resoling shoes!
In other news, I attended a potluck dinner with all the host families in my winter study program today. African food is INCREDIBLE. I will miss it dearly when I head back into the dining halls. I made Sambusa with my family for the potluck. Here's what sambusa looks like:
It's a stuffed tortilla that's deep fried. Our sambusa had ground beef, onions, carrots, and peas inside it, but you can make vegetarian sambusa, which is equally as delicious as it's meaty counterpart. My only qualm is that there wasn't any leftover sambusa. BOO! I WILL be making sambusa at college. I have a feeling my sanity is going to depend on some home cooked food.

2010 was a great year for The Wardrobe Not Taken, a little blog that could. This blog is the piece of writing I have spent the longest on, with the exception of a novel that I have been working on for about 5 years. That book is a story for another day. For my hundredth post, I thought I would do something special, A "Year In Review".
The best things about 2010:
1) The end of freshman year! Phew! I'm not (quite) the little fish in the big pond anymore.
2) The BBC series "Sherlock". If you haven't seen it, you SHOULD. *Just as soon as you finish reading this post of course*
3) My trip to California. San Francisco I love you!
4) My discovery of Vampire Weekend and Ra Ra Riot, late in the game I know. Where have you been all my life?
5) (Re) Learning to Cross Country Ski. I wish I had my skis right now so I could ski to work.
Worst things about 2010:
1) BP Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
2) Gas Prices. $3.25 a gallon? Ew. Pretty soon they'll be putting those ARM and LEG signs back up instead of real prices.
3) Lack of Dre's Detox Album. Again. I swear that album better be made of 24 karat gold when it gets released. It's been far too long.
4) Arizona Shooting.

Here are a few pictures from my adventure out and around Portland, Maine, as promised. I could have gone to the Bahamas, or Jerusalem, or Nicaragua, but I chose Portland instead. I'm glad I did.
