Sundries

Brrrr!



Tonight is going to be the coldest night in South Florida, for the past 3 years.

I'm fine, cosy in my chinchilla muff, and Dr. Scholl's foot warmers, but this computer room stroke library of ours is not heated, so my computer time is necessarily restricted.

So with that in mind, I've written up some "quick hits" posts today, for your amusement.

Scroll below and check the comments sections, on previous posts.

Here's looking at you, you poor blizzard survivors.

UPDATE: Well, like Donna Summer, I survived. The temperature gage is sneaking up on 54F, and by Wednesday, will be a more typical SoFla 74ish.

On this hearty note, Happy Valentine's Day to all you lovers out there. Remember, Valentine's Day Massacres should never refer to your love life. Go out and find love!

  • Bah! I live in N. Florida, and I'm currently wearing shorts and sandals. I laugh in the face of winter!

    You so crazy!

    I just checked NBC Plus Weather Channel (actually better than the Weather Channel), and saw that Tallahassee is currently 25F...which is -4C, or thereabouts.

    Layer, layer, before you freeze!

    P.S.: Love the new avatar, too, IRA Darth Aggie.

    Cheers,

    We're now at a toasty 58F, about 15C.

    Thank ye. It's a retouched photo of a carving done with a computer controlled lathe on a pumpkin.

    I'd been a test subject in a facial recognition project, and a 3-d scan of my face got posted on our website. The operator of the lathe was in Canada and downloaded the data and fed it (and a pumpkin) to his lathe. The likeness is...uncanny. And somewhat erie, actually.

  • I have a hard time feeling bad for you guys in Florida, even Northern Florida. We've been cold all Winter long, and do you have any idea how hard it is to get a drink here to keep you warm? I have to pay 12 bucks just to get a membership so I can be in a bar, let alone buy a drink. Wish I was there!

    Probably you were more today, as we down here finally got up to mid-70s, Wednesday.

    Thursday, and this weekend, will be in the 80sF again, yay.

    Whaaa? I must really update the Photoshop.

    P.S.: Cool!

    But somewhat like a death mask. Or Frankenstein, with the bolts on your temple, rather than neck...

    But strangely strangely, erotic.

    I likes.

    Don't worry. I just post these things to make others angry. ;)

    We've been cold all Winter long, and do you have any idea how hard it is to get a drink here to keep you warm?

    Is the answer 'to get to the other side of the road'?

    Come on down!

    Actually, you know, I never realised how different living in a warm clime is, until I moved from my windy, blustery, rainy country, to this paradise of South Florida.

    First, people drink much much less than we do in England.

    And now, I know why.

    But oddly, this lack of pub culture is also evident in the colder regions of the US too.

    Sure, there are people like yourself which find pricey bars, and the like to keep you warm, but it is nowhere near as social a custom, as our popping down to our local, for a pint.

    Wonder why...

    Cheers,
    Victoria
