Windy

It’s been a busy couple of days here, so the shotgun post is delayed. It will be up today, though.

As I was driving in to work this morning, I went over the Brightman Street Bridge and there was a bird (a swallow of some kind) flying overhead, about 40 feet above the road. It was flapping madly, yet it was stationary… hovering where it was as the wind held it in place above the center of the bridge.

I swear I’ve had whole weeks like that.

Better than going backwards though :-)

So very true.

I'm seeing a lot of meteorological blogging lately. Personally I'm so fed up with politics I find myself discussing the weather a lot.

Anyway, I hope you breeze your way into a nice relaxing weekend. Don't push too hard for the shotgun post. I can wait a day if you're swamped.

Yeah, but why weather? Is it a desire to not be offensive or confrontational to anybody?

Because the weather's been freaking weird. We've had wide swings of temperature, from snowing to mid 50's and now up to 60 degrees. Fog, rain, wind, snow...

It's been interesting.

Personally, I have no desire to avoid offending people, and I doubt most people who realize Bush has his head up his ass have few qualms about saying it.

But Chuck can speak to his own motivations.

It's snowing in Wista* right now, my boss says.

*Or as the fancy folks like to call it, "Worcester."

I don't particularly care about offending retards (a.k.a. Bush voters) with my political bile, but it doesn't do any good.

I'm tired of investing time and effort in the right thing and watching it go down the shitter... fuck 'em, let 'em learn the hard way.

Nice weather we're having, innit?

Ah, Worcester! Such fond memories. I worked on a college cable show there during my last year. The running gag was the spelling of Worcester. Every time they flashed the address on the screen, it was spelled differently!
