What makes you sad about winter?
« on: 13/01/2007 05:19:17 »
One thing that really puts a twist in my shorts is that you cannot sit around, typing meaningless banter with other people, also with nothing else to do, IN YOUR UNDERWARE!!  You need pants and a second shirt, probably socks as a minimum, most likely shoes, too, so when you go to bed you spend 5 minutes cramming the heap you threw all that stuff into next to the wall so when you stagger out of bed either in the morning or sometime during the night you don't trip and fall on you face.

EXAMPLE

(Guy walks into the office one morning)

"Hi, Fred"

"Lord God in Heaven, Merton, what happened to you?"

Merton, one eye swollen shut, a livid bruise covering the rest of that side of his face says, "It this damend winter weather. I can't use my computer in my underware so when I got up last night to whiz I got my feet somehow tangled in the sleeves of my flannel shirt when my dog, who was sleeping on it, scared the b-jesus out'a me, an' I fell and grabbed at something and all I got was the 6 foot high book case I keep my spare computer parts and my porn mags, CD's & DVD's in fell on me. One of the shelves shifted and got my square in the eye, the side of the bookcase did the rest of my face. Worst part of it all was that a picture frame also fell, the glass broke and scratched the the genuine autographed TO ME! picture of Jenna Jameson I got at the Adult Entertainment Expo. I'll never be happy again until I can sit at my computer, typing to other forum clones in my underware once more and somehow fix that picture. You know of any photographic restoration experts?"

Well, Merton," Fred says, "At least you got'a life.  [8]

THat is very funny Jim Bob.. ANd I agree with the whole thing, I am so bundled I can hardly type.. need a pair of gloves with my typing fingertips cut out as I keep hitting the wrong keys with me gloves on.. My computer room has no heat and it is getting on 18 degrees.. It is freezing in here.. I turned the fan on out by the wood stove to move the heat down the hall to my computer room. Alas I can't feel it at all yet.. Probably won't at all.. But I was hoping.

 Hey You wouldn't believe what I have on if I told you!! LOL I look like the kid from Christmas story after his mama bundles him up and sends him packing to school in the snow!! LOL And I am inside the house with a wood stove burning in the oter room. Have half a mind to move my computer for the winter!! LOL

 That story you told reminds me of the pile of cloths next to the bed by my husband.. I have tried to approach the bed in the night to steel his flashlight ... What a disaster almost took myself out along with his night stand complete with cold water and miscellanous junk which accumulates as his treasures upon his nightstand!! LOL I truuly hate wearing tons of clothes.. I am with  you there... Less is better!!! LOL

After a couple of weeks of grey, wet, windy, short dark days, it was bright, crisp with the sunlight doubled by the snow.  It was glorious.  But then my euphoria was boosted by a lack of pain from my recently xrayed, not broken after all, foot.

Glad you did not break your leg! Hope it gets well soon. Sometimes pulled legiments can be alot worse then if it had simply broken!!

See what makes me sad about this winter in particular, is the lack of winter. It is January 13th (Hockey Day in Canada) there is no snow on the ground. The temperature is above zero... this is crazy!! I am starting to miss having to shovel my car out, and wearing scarves and mitts and a hat as a necessity, not just as accessories!!! Where did my winter go???

Thats it, I'm moving to Sweden.

I hate the darkness. I love it in summer, sitting up til late with the sun still shining, and you get so much more done when its light for longer.

its not really been that cold yet, the snow usually comes in february now though, so we'll see what happens this year.

if its going to be cold then at least let it be pretty! although more than a couple of days of the transport system breaking down and it starts to wear thin.

people over here are pansies, instead of just wearing boots and driving slower and more carefully, then panic and either don't go anywhere at all, or drive like idiots and crash.

One thing does make me quite sad - cabin fever. Have had it for a day or so and it is very irritating. No wonder Ted Kazinsky made bombs and sent them out to various people. I doubt he had any political ideas, just got P.O.ed living in that cabin with no windowns and wanted to make others as miserable as he was!!!

Your probably right! Makes one go a bit stir crazy.. I have trouble in big crowds of people get a bit nervous, really nervous Not really claustraphobic although I don't like really tiny spaces but I manage just fine. But a small cabin and no windows and being alone, could make one go buggy! Are you snowed in?
