I'm a child of the 80s. Deal with it.

It's snowing outside and I am most seriously displeased. We're not talking a little bit of flurries, either. This is a few inches of snow and it's staying. It is May, I should not have to deal with snow! I shouldn't be surprised, since this is not the first year we've had a May snowfall but I will still sulk about it. I'm so sick of winter. First snowfall was in October, people. Do you have any idea how long winter seems when it stretches across eight months?

In other news, I have become addicted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's charming and colourful and intelligently written. Plotlines are surprisingly complex for what is allegedly a children's show and the main characters are pretty well fleshed out. They've had episodes about racism and puberty and other issues you wouldn't expect. And it's something I can watch with my seven-year-old daughter. We appreciate it on different levels sometimes, but we both glee over it unashamedly. And, well, it taps into the nostalgic part of me, since I was of the right age to get swept up into the first generation of My Little Ponies back in the '80s.

Yes, it's obvious I watch this show from a mature perspective. *cough cough*
