Went to church tonight with a short sleeve blouse.  That was strange.

But a nice change actually. 

Until I start thinking about the "why" and get all depressed.

Oh well, Marry Christmas all, even those in colder climates.

Crazy. Here in Ontario it's "You get a cold! You get a cold! Everyone gets a cold!"

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone here. Hope everyone has a great day with friends and family.

Christmas this year has been kinda... chill for me this year. I'm a bit far away from the rest of my family to make the trip from Nevada to Maryland, and since my mom didn't want to worry about shipping packages, my only gift was a card for Amazon (which I knew about weeks ago and had to open the letter it came in a few days early because it came with my updated Car tags.) I'm going to a friend's for Christmas dinner, but outside of that my plan is just to chill out and wait for DBZA Broly to come out so I can pull out that Ice Cream I've been saving.

Merry Christmas to all!  It's in the high 70s here as well, which is just ridiculous.  Still, I hope everyone has a happy holiday.
God Bless

It was in the 50's earlier, but it's now dropping below freezing.  Given that we at close to zero a few weeks ago, which is like over a month earlier than usual, I really don't mind.

It's still been in the 30's around here. Better than last week; it was -17 degrees on Sunday. :thumbdown: But I guess it's just that time of the year, which is something to be grateful for. It's always seemed to me after all that Christmas, with its spirit of giving, offers us all a wonderful opportunity each year to reflect upon what we all most sincerely and deeply believe in. I refer of course to money. ;) (You thank Mister Tom Leher for that one. Great satirist, seriously. Check him out if you get a chance.)

Seriously everybody, Merry Christmas. It's been commercialized to hell and back, but it's still the most wonderful time of the year. :)

Now it's 80 degrees in January. I'm wearing shorts and running the AC.

I'm really getting sick of this wildly inconsistent weather, somewhat literally.

To be fair, this is nothing new to us Gulf Coasters. The Gulf Coast has always been a fickle mistress. :P

True; many's the Christmas we went outside in short sleeves to play with our toys.

And just as many we had to stay inside out of the rain and play with our new games.

if you really want to feel bad, check out the weather over here in Okinawa. Of course, the summers are brutal.

We're fighting off mosquitos here in Arkansas at the end of January.  That's just not right.
