So very cold

betsymartian 10:55am, 24 May 2006
I hate to be the one to talk about the weather but it's fucking shite, and I'm so very very cold in my cold cold office... I'm holding a scalding hot cup of tea in my hands because the burny pain feels better than the freezy shakes. I may bring a hot water bottle to work tomorrow. And a blanket.

Currently 32'c in my office.

I'm in the UK too! It's not even hot outside! Must be all the computers...

I am walking on sunshine seriously since moving from Ithaca to Key West. Almost literally like night and day. I think there was still frost on the tulips when I left last week. Brrrr.

Betsy, you need a pashmina or a vacation.
betsymartian 12 years ago
Nath, I need both.

Please provide them immediately.

You'll be happy to know it's storming in Key West. Actually, a nice break from sunshine sunshine sunshine. Nothing like a rip-roaring pre-hurricane seaon thundercloud to break the monotony.

It's warm and sunny here, nary a cloud in the sky. But what does it matter since I stay indoors 24/7 being a flickr slut?
maddog. 12 years ago
I got soaked today and Larry freaked out at the hail and lept onto my lap while I was driving.

And stayed there, like he used to before I figured it's probably illegal.

Nah, Britney drives around with all kinds of live things in her lap.

That's what they tell the rest of the world. We here in America know the truth from all the tabloid shows.

When I took my dogs out this morning it was sunny...
When I was at the furthest point from my house, it started to monsoon, then hail, then flash flood...
I didn't have a coat on !

my birthday is June 14th, that will be an International Flickr Holiday. Everybody take the day off work and spend it in bed. It's a rule.
key lime pie yumyum 12 years ago
Oh, come on, betsy, let's do something DIFFERENT for your birthday.

*falls back onto pillow*
betsymartian 12 years ago
Oh I won't be spending the day in bed, I have to work in the morning. I have the afternoon off because I have to go to a conference that starts the next day so I'm travelling down early to chill out. I'll spend the afternoon watching TV in my hotel room then go out for dinner and drinks with Shhexycorin and her hareem.

You all have to spend the day in bed.

June 14th is indeed flag day - i will be thinking of you as I pledge allegence to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, blah blah .....can't remember
my biirthday is also in june - gemini
betsymartian 12 years ago
you'll pledge allegiance to ME, that's who you'll pledge allegiance to.

maddog's birthday's been and gone so he'll just have to wait for 2010. He only gets a birthday every four years.
judicious power [deleted] 12 years ago
that is so lucky that you get to spend the day with shhexy corin.. really lucky.. I cannot think of a better birthday present.. It sounds like something unreal..my birthday is JULY 18th.. it is an OK day for a birthday.. it is so hot that time of year.
betsymartian, are you "under god?" Are you "indivisible?" If so, I will certainly pledge allegiance.
betsymartian 12 years ago
I don't have to be under god or indivisible, don't be so presumptuous

I'm not too warm, not too cold, and will gladly spend all day in bed on June 14th. It's a good place to be.
*steve_gobeil* PRO 12 years ago
It is leaking here after the weatherman said it would be sunny and I didn't put the top up on my jeep.

So now I have to drive with 3" of water sloshing around my ankles.

Damn weather people.

re: Ant's new photo.

I can't count the number of times that I was at the beauty salon and had to fight back the urge to shove a wad of hair in my mouth... it's so enticing, it's unexplainable.
