"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

I Really Hate The Weather Channel Right Now

The heat is really getting to me. I'm seriously considering wrapping myself up in a bed sheet and telling everyone it's a toga. I completely flipped out earlier and yelled a variety of obscenities at the Weather Channel. You know, I understand that some parts of the USA are experiencing cooler than average summer weather and those folks are thrilled about their lower power bills and such, but could you talking heads please turn down the glee a notch?

To the blonde gal in the Hamptons who keeps blathering on about how fabulous the weather is right now in the Hamptons: It's gonna be another scorcher where I am, while other people are really struggling to pay their bills, so your infomercial on the "Joys of The Hamptons" is highly annoying.

Can somebody hand me a guitar?



For those of you on dial-up, it's the scene from Animal House where John Belushi comes downstairs in his toga, hears the love song, and smashes the singer's guitar.

That's one of the funniest scenes in the movie. Excellent!

I hate those Weather People too, they sit in that air-conditioned studio gurgling happily about the GREAT weather, yeah sure it's great for you guys! But out here in the heat it's not so great.

If only we could just skip to October! :)

That was a good scene.
On a side-note, I just noticed in your profile that one of your interests is "setting things on fire".... well, if that's your 'thing'...

Hi Heather!

Lidian,
It's usually still pretty warm in October where I live. FallWinSpri starts sometime in November or even December, if we have an especially warm year.

Admit it Joe, part of the reason grilling is so popular is the "playing with fire" factor! *grins*
