    Outing alert. I am ...


    I walked out of an arena today with a can of soda in my hand. I walked maybe 50 yards and by the time I got to my car, I could not feel my fingers. Frostbite was starting to take hold that quickly. I left a bottle of water in the car during the game and it was frozen solid.

    Even my ass can't stay supple in this kind of cold. The supple molecules get into a sedentary state and instead of moving my ass in the supple way the Lord intended, it takes on a staccato sort of frozen suppleness. Don't get me wrong. My frozen ass is the Italian ice of frozen asses, but my cakes are best served warm, not frozen. :-X

    Dammit, that's sig-worthy, right there.

    I ain't gonna use it, but someone definitely should. :D

    It was -27 where Zeke was. So sack up.

    It's about the same in Rosie Land, if not colder.

    I think she said it was minus-25 there. But she had the love of Favre to keep her warm!

    Rosie just used an ice pick to stab an already-frozen drifter and doesn't know why.

    He and Rosie are both Eskimos. They choose to live in the frozen wastelands they live in. They don't count.

    But it is true, at least, that Rosie can cozy up to No. 4. He's a gamer!

    Not my regular hometown, but it was 70 and sunny where I was most of the day Sunday (Phoenix).

    I try to be an optimist in these days of global cooling (screw that, this is global colding).

    So follow my optimism here. We are already two weeks past the solstice. That means the days are already about 25 minutes longer. That's 25 more minutes of the sun shining (or at least beating on top of the cloudbanks just fighting to make us warm). By next week we'll be to the 10th of the month, leaving just three weeks. So the month will be over before you know it. And February is the shortest month of the year, so hell, we're practically into March already. And March is the month with the first day of spring.

    So we're pretty much just a few days away from spring. Think positive.

    I'm expecting single digits by Thursday night and I'm going out of town. I have to figure out where the shutoff valve is to the house so I can drain the pipes before I go. The pipes in my house can handle 18. That's as cold as it's ever gotten since I moved in, and that's been almost six years ago.

    It's 12 here in north Tennessee. I'm really dreading PT today.

    Bless you for your optimism. We've still got a good bit of the snow that hit us TWO AND A HALF FUCKING WEEKS AGO. And I didn't know what howling winds were until the past few weeks. This is awful. I'm in Virginia - unlike you guys, I didn't sign up for this.
