[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] It's Going to Be a Weird Day...

The above is a screen-shot of what I saw in my Quotes of the Day RSS feed. I found it to be a little silly (and if you can't read it, click the picture to see the bigger version).

Anyway, it's still ridiculously cold here in the Land of Cheese. I woke up and my thermometer read "-0.0" degrees. Yes. That's a negative nothing. And, while I made coffee and wobbled around the kitchen, I was so annoyed by this odd notion that I took my rage out upon an innocent cookie (chocolate chip). It was kind of tasty first thing in the morning, and I whole-heartedly endorse eating cookies for breakfast. After all, what is a cookie if not "enhanced toast?"

Following that little slice of madness, I damn near shattered into bitter little shards as I stepped out to forage in the snow for my morning paper. After failing miserably, I came to the conclusion that I really couldn't care less about current events, and if need be, I'll read the damn thing sometime in August.

Well... I've got to get some caffeine into my system before I turn into an immovable drooler. The temperature now is three below. That's not too bad. That's pancake weather. However, I'm not entirely convinced that my getting out of bed this morning hasn't simply made things worse for the world. Normally, the temperature's supposed to go up in the morning, isn't it?

  1. Go back to bed, Dan.

  2. You would think that would be the way of the world but unfortunately for us in the colder regions, we get screwed.  If the sun comes out, you know it's going to be a cold as a bitch.  Where's the logic in that?  Oh, the clouds are like a warm fluffy blankie keeping us warm.  To hell with the clouds, I need to see the damned sun once and a while to keep from going on a killing spree.  Here in Indianer, we are getting snow... lots of cold, wet friggin snow.

  3. Three below? Bugger that! go back to bed , I'll give you a call around June.


  4. Aha! At 10 degrees I'm a little bit warmer, if you consider 10 degree warm in a weird sort of way. I can almost guarantee you , it's possible to freeze at that temp....while waiting for you dog to finish whatever weird configuration she is working on this morning for her latest crop circle made of a mixture of pee and poop. (Seeing how long it took her this morning, I think we can expect another Area 51 in my yard sometime by tomorrow)....

    As for wise saying...that's a rip off from me! They must of read my latest entry on simple words.....I'll let Lord Byron sue them (winks)...Hopefully dog-cat is curled somewhere around your feet to provide some shared warmth. What am I talking about it's a cat , nah it's stealing YOUR heat. (Hugs) Indigo

  5. As we can all see I haven't thawed out yet, I sound like I'm writing through gloves on my keyboard with all the mis-spellings....below....Eh...I'm going back to bed.
    (Hugs) Indy

  6. One of my favorite things to eat in the morning is Quaker Breakfast Cookies. They actually called them that, and I think it's a stroke of marketing genius. They're very yummy, and my favorite is oatmeal raisin. They contain 30% of my RDA of calcium, so they're good for me. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.


  7. Lately, I've allowed myself one piece of (homemade) peppermint bark to start my morning, THEN the usual something warm to drink and etc.  Cookies would fit right in.  Then again, I've occasionally ahd ice cream for breakfast, so oh well.  Could be worse, like minus nothing outside.

  8. I couldn't function if it was that friggin cold. Sod the coffee, where's the Vodka!
