Ides of March

Okay, so I'm a day late. I just wanted to complain for a moment about the month of March. Two days ago, we threw open the windows and patio doors and allowed a little bit of warm, seventy-degree air into the apartment. It was wonderful.

Today, I keep glancing out the window to see how much more snow is on the ground. Yep, snow. First it was rain, then sleet, now friggin' snow! It's cold, it's snowy, and it's the middle of March.

Allergy sufferers will be happy (and I work with several, so trust me), but I hate this. It feels like a big tease. Give us warm weather, then give us snow and ice.

Damn you, Mother Nature!

Oh yeah, and a Happy Birthday to my sister, Dawn. Just remember, my dear, no matter how old you get....I'll always be younger. *rimshot*

Yes, where is that DS9 movie!?!

The best and most neglected Trek offering--clearly someone has their heads up in a place where the sun don't shine.

Kelly Meding/Kelly Meade said...

Agreed. Even their supporting cast (hello, Garak!) could headline a movie.

Yes, Paramount, I'm looking at you!

It seems like March has been crazy for weather all over the world! It was kinda nice walking down the street without a coat in March, but I think I'd prefer not having to carry a scarf around with me just in case the temperature drops!

I had to laugh at your birthday greeting to your sister. I say something similiar to my husband who is five years older than I am. Whenever he's complaining about us getting older I say to him... "No matter how old and wrinkled I get, you'll always be older and more wrinkled."

Thank goodness he knows it's all in good fun or he might point out that he's got less grey hair than I do. But only me and my stylist know that... and now of course all of your readers... lol.

March has to have crazy weather like that. If we went through all kinds of cold nastiness and had to sustain that until April with no breaks, we'd all go the Eskimos.
