Shiver me timbers, it's bloody cold!

I've had enough of the snow already. Please quit. I've begged and tried to bargain with Mr. Jack Frost but he's having nothing to do with me and my pleas; my wailing and groveling is falling on deaf ears as the snow continues to just float around us all, completely unassuming in its dropping, that I hate it and that I'm plotting its dreadful end. I wish I could set a million hairdryers on the snow and melt those fiendish little flakes into nothing but puddles! Bwahahahahaha!

Okay, it snowed so much yesterday that I didn't get to leave to see a movie. Mac and I were already to see Nine. (I have no idea how I convinced him to see it. I've heard rumor that someone is topless, and I don't mean Day-Lewis and since Mac is 16 years old and does love boobies... anyway, there has to be a logical explanation for a kid his age to want to see a musical!) We were going to the next town over but never left Civilization after watching several cars slide right off the slick streets in front of us. Drat! As Mac said, "This weather blows." Indeed it does!

And the weather forecast says we're supposed to have more snow over the next three days. Again, I am unimpressed. I'm cold. I've been cold since I drove home in that damnable blizzard last Christmas holiday!

I even went so far as to look at the price of plane tickets to see my blogger friend P who lives in Florida. For $300 I could go, leaving Wednesday, and stay for a week. I'm afraid it would be so warm, I wouldn't want to leave in a week, whether SHE wanted me to or not.

Anyway, providing Jack Frost takes an ounce of pity on me, I plan to pick up Curley later today to do some fabric and yarn shopping, have a spot of lunch, and take in a movie. We shall see how the day progresses, I would guess.

blast this cold,
Maggie "shivering" Mae

I'm sorry that you're cold. I have no plans until the 9th. It will be in the fifties all week during the which is probably warm to you!!

Mom-in-law called last night and said it was 60 there and she thought she was gonna have to get out her "jacket". Sounds like a heat wave to me. As for out here, it is blowing drifts everywhere.

Maggie said...

P- if I HAD $300 I would be there in a heartbeat! And the 50s is certainly warm to me!

Curley- well, damn that sucks. Stupid snow. Whomever wrote "snowing and blowin' up bushels of fun" obviously did not experience it in the Midwest! It is NOT FUN!

And your mother-in-law is lucky for the 60s. I'd take some of that!

I can sympathize. It was warm enough yesterday to walk in the park with just a sweatshirt (well, and jeans), but today it's cold and the wind is blowing. I hate winter! I want to go see Nine also, but I may have to wait for the DVD. Stay as warm as you can!

Maggie said...

Bragger- you stay warm too! And go see Nine- the music was awesome!

Wish I could send you some warmth. It's been wet here so it's not a super hot summer, but still warm. I could easily spare about 30 degrees...
