The incredible whiteness of being

The fireball in the sky has not appeared for many moons.


All color has been washed from the earth!


It is time to gather the elders ...


... and see why the Gods are angry with us.


Alas. Methinks I am the only one left

That first one is awesome... It seems the only good thing about snow is the fantastic pix u take... love the one of the building sitting in all that white.

It's been like this here for months--just a complete cover of snow and ice.

After a while, the strange gray-washed color of EVERYTHING really starts to get to you. Even the light of day is washed out.

Those icicles are awesome.

Florida IS nice... it seems like you're living on another planet compared to the weather we have.

Also, I wanted to bring to your attention a new social website that I'd like to read your thoughts on. www.ChatRoulette.com

methinks you need a vacation to warmer climates

Ooooh...where it snow, I don't go!

Come on out to California. I think we've finally got past all our storms (rain and sprinkles). I was actually able to get my car washed today! Practically suntan weather!

(I make fun. You know I come from Oregon where I had to make due with wood heat in a 10,000 sq ft warehouse. Yes, it actually used to get down to 22f INSIDE my living space!)


WV: eyroc. Yes I do, I rock!

Come out to Vancouver. It is green and spring is here. And there's red and white everywhere.

And gold.

How else can you appreciate summer without suffering through winter.

After 3 consecutive days like that in middle Tennessee I was suicidal. I don't know how you do it.

P.S. Awesome vid from LA Ink. Currently unadorned, right at the threshold of ink myself.

Dearest Dean,

Sidney Crosby is a pussy.

Yours,

AHA! You people are peeking over there at the Twitter feed.

Shit like that makes me feel like an honest-to-God witch.

dean said...

Sidney Crosby is a pussy.

Well then, as O'Brien says, I just don't know what. Because that pussy beat Miller clean. 1-1, mano-a-mano, whites-of-the-eyes clean.

It has to be said that you do live in a particularly gorgeous part of the world, Erin - I've lived in places where there are no discernible seasons (e.g. LA) and it's tediously predictable and samey.

Off topic again, thanks for your indulgence.

Dean,

Just kidding of course. What a great game. I live in the southeastern US where college football is king. It's really pretty funny to hear a bunch of hillbillies screaming "FORECHECK THE S.O.B.!!!!!!!"

erin, re: the twitters. I'm sure regular readers recognize my unhealthy vicarious web addiction to this site. I can not bring myself to get twittered, facebooked, etc. so I let you do it for me. If one has to be addicted to something I guess this is as benign as it gets. It's either you or "burningangel.com." which might get me in trouble.

WV- "aingsh" - The hillbillies were aingshed when Crosby scored the winning goal in overtime."

So much for global warming.

ROTFLMAO!!!

Jack Cluth said...

Ugh...truly a vision of Hell...and this from someone who grew up in northern Minnesota. It looks like something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel. ;-(

Dear Lord,

The curious thing between your legs is a penis.

Love,
