The prognosticators prognosticated sleet and ice and snow for my area today.
As usual, they were wrong.
Remind me to send them a Thank You card.
Seriously, Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby has a better track record than most weather peeps.
So, today I shall be doing chores at home, and trying to stay warm while the prognosticated temperature reaches its zenith. Basically what I am trying to say is, I have run out of excuses and must now clean house.
And how will you be spending this inglorious bastardly day??
Having lived through more than my share of hurricanes, and coming from the culture that gave y’all the word in the first place, I offer up prayers for y’all’s safety, and hope that y’all are taking plenty of precautions!!
And I really meant it when I say “taking ALL precautions”.
Take care, stay safe, and above all, do NOT become a Rider of the Storm!!
Yes, I’m aware of the spelling. It serves two purposes: 1) I am NOT endorsing the popular site, and 2) those too moronic to misspell it will end up here, giving H&B more hits. I’m a genius that way.
Anyway, John over at Nobody Move! is on a staycation, and is blogging about the places he would like to visit. If you peruse his posts you will definitely see a pattern! I have a list if y’all recall, of things to do before I die, which includes travelling to far away places, too. But with high prices, TSA goons, and riots all over the world, a staycation makes more sense. My dad is what I call an armchair tourist. It’s enough for him to view videos/ DVDs about foreign places. His reasoning is, he has seen insert-place-here from ever possible angle from the air conditioned comfort of his recliner, so why go? I can hardly fault his logic.
I’ll admit, most of the places on my list are tropical in nature, but with the heat this summer, I have been thinking more along the lines of Antartica.
So, my friends, where would y’all like to spend your staycation?
It’s quite hot. Very hot. Africa hot.
The humidity doesn’t help either. Here in my corner of Hades, it’s a cool 86* degrees overcast, with 84% relative humidity. It’s also 8:30 AM.By noon, it will be about 97*, and the heat index will make it feel like 105*. And then in the afternoon, it will get hot…
I have a feeling I will be jumping the sprinklers today as I get the patio ready for Eldest’s party tomorrow.
Why couldn’t she have been born in springtime??

…. can bite my ass. Once again, we are under freezing conditions, blustery winds, and sleet in my part of South Texas. This time it’s not snow, but ice, and I would rather have the snow. And y’all know how I feel about snow. I swear, if Teh Goron shows his fat face in this state, there will be a lynching.
Anyway, I was picking up the kids yesterday, and Sean Hannity was on the radio, hocking Pajamagrams. If you recall from last year’s Valentine Shopping post, I recommended them. I still do. I’m a pajama freak. Moving on, Hannity was talking about a new type of PJ that the company had, the Hoodie Footie. my first thought was, “WTF is that?”, but that was quickly overridden by the second, more pressing thought, “How fast can I get to my laptop to look that up??” Well, a few minutes later I got home from doing 40 in a 25 picking up the Little One, and researched the wondrous PJ:
So yes, I got myself this PJ as my treat for Valentine’s Day/ Mardi Gras/ Easter/ fill-in-any-holiday, and I can flip a serious bird to Old Man Winter.
Aggie- 1, Winter- 0
It is now 27* F ( -3*C to you metric peeps) with a wind chill factor of -2* F (even colder in metric). The wind is howling outside, making the little dog yap at every…single…noise. I have been wearing two layers of clothing all day, and am ready to boil my skin before getting in bed. This weather is recockulous, and I can honestly say, I can’t wait for summer, when I am five blocks from the Sun.
Teh Goron has a ring reserved in Hell for this shit.
