19 this is a low


(the winter of our freezicating discontent has official commenced. and though we are all madly in love with chicago, as chicagoans it is our God-given right to complain bitterly about being colder than anyone should ever have to be.)

it is 27 degrees right now. the high is 43 and the low is 31. and it is currently 27 degrees. how can the current temperature be lower than the low? why not adjust the low so you don't look like a moron? i don't do numbers, but if it is currently 27 degrees, it seems pretty obvious that the low is not 31. obviously, the low is lower than that low would imply.

anybody remember monday, when it was a brisk 71?

i know being a boy of the south i have no reason to complain... but trust me when i say atlanta is quote cold right now. it's 40, and for Atlantans that's cold enough to start talking about it!

nick said...

and by quote cold, i mean quite cold.

I heard that it hit 27 in Nashville the other day. My opinion is that all work and school should be closed once the temp gets below 50 degrees. It's just insane. Completely boggles the mind.

nick said...

and i don't know if you did it on purpose - but the name for your post is also a blur song. awesomer.

oline said...

on purpose, indeed.

Meggie said...

Awesomer??? Unh.

nick said...

"awesomer" is totally a word in my world. which makes it totally the awesomest word in these comments so far! like... totally.

nick said...

Meggie said...

Nickie, you're odd.

nick said...

oline said...

being odd is totally funnest.

nick said...

totally, like... for serious.

nick said...

wow. i really can't stop.

oddly, the ultimate valley girl for me now is jessie spano. this is due to the SBTB episode where she ran for student body class pres against zack, who only ran because he wanted to go on the trip to d.c.

in an uncharacteristicly sly, yet characteristically dorktastic move, jessie spano wooed the derisive student body populace by donning a pink lace business suit- straight out of the frederick's of hollywood catalogue- and conducting a debate against zack grounded wholly within the rhetorical analytics of "like, for sure."

um... i don't know what the point of that was, but i really needed to share.

On with the sharing... My Christmas tree is now up. Granted, the ornaments are still in a box on the floor but the tree is up and lit. And I'm listening to Etta James sing a totally awesome version of Silent Night. *happy sigh* All is perfect in my world.
