Blah, blah snow, blah blah blah...

I just took a look out the window and saw that the sun is trying to break through the clouds and it's snowing again. It's just some light flurries though there are another 6 inches or so coming Saturday. I don't have any pictures to post. How many pictures can you post of great lumps of snow getting larger? I have no desire to go places where the scenes are picturesque. My car looks like a glazed crueler with powdered sugar liberally sprinkled upon it. Did I say cruelar? They are not called cruelars any more at Dunkin' Donuts. They are   called glazed sticks which is appropriate since that's exactly what they taste like. A stick. Their coffee is ok but the donuts, the original intent of the company have taken a back seat and have become mass produced bland, lumps of tasteless feathery air. Well as I often do, I have gone way off topic. Then again, I have no topic.

As soon as our latest "snow event" ends (oh give me a break) I will go out and clean the residue of the "snow event" (formely known as snow) off my car so I won't have to do it tomorrow at 6 a.m. At least those are my plans. 

I learned, listening to the radio this morning, that some parking lot attendents working at government (state) owned lots make over $100,000 a year. Oh wait their not called parking lot attendents any more. They're called "Parking Utility Technicians" (Another break please!) You gotta love the language police. You could call me a parking lot attendent for a hundred grand. Do you have to attend a 4 year university to tell somebody, "Put it over there." Somebody in a coma could do this job. Just a thought.

Let's see, what else is annoying me. Well seeing that we have all the snow, the roads are much more narrow. Parking is a large problem. You can't go visit anyone unless they have a driveway. But most annoying to me are the people riding their bikes. I realize that for some people it's their only mode of transportation. I will cut them a break. You can recognize these people by how the're dressed and the type of bikes they have. It's the Tour de France wannabe's that really tick me off. I know I've gone off on these pompous clowns before but I would have hoped they would disapear during all our recent "snow events" but  alas these spandex clad, remarkably stupid people insist upon putting their lives in your hands. Yes I know it's legal and there's nothing I can do about it but that doesn't mean I have to like it. My choices? Bowing to their meanderings and letting them have run of the road or running them over when they stray into my path or fall off their bikes because they hit an icy patch. Then we have the people who are training for the Boston Mararthon. You want to run? Go to a track! Get off the frikin' road!

And in conclusion, yesterday a gentleman with a thick Irish accent came to my counter and asked for a "tird of a pound of honey ham."

I'm outta here.  


  1. Good Morning Paul! Did you write this Before your coffee? I come to spread sunshine on your realistic world. Am I annoying or what? Hope your cruelar melts.

  2. LOL!!!!! I love the Irish. I am so proud of you for not asking what kind of tird.
    You always make me smile little bro. Cheer up, the snow will be gone by the 4th of July and it will be 100 degrees and I will be hollering that it is too hot to go outside.
    Stay safe!

  3. Thanks ladies. I sorry I gave the impression that I was in a foul mood. I'm in a good mood. I just wanted to write something and didn't know what to write. I listened to the news and I was off.
    Toodie you want my crueler to melt?! It's the only crueler I have!

  4. Someday I will learn to look at what I type before I post. Believe it or not I was born in this country. I not sorry, I'm sorry. Sorry about that.

  5. I am glad you are not in a fowl mood. May your day be filled with sunshine and happy thoughts... yes I AM annoying today lol!

  6. I am glad you are in a good mood. Think 100 degrees.

  7. No Beth. not 100 degrees. I am most viable at 72.

  8. Greetings from the Warm Sunny South!
    Well, it is warmer (28 degrees this A.M) with NO SNOW, and partly sunny.
    The bad storm that hit y'all missed us by about 50 miles to the North. We just got rain and 52 degree weather!

  9. LOVED it. You're like me in that way. I write things (or did) like you have and everyone thinks I'm in a bad mood. Quite the contrary. I'm having fun but no one else is, and they keep hoping I feel better. That's nice but I was having a blast. But only I knew that apparently. :-)))

  10. blessings...
    I'd say "blah blah snow blah blah blah" is a topic. As for bicyclers well I don't drive but I would say "get off the frigging side walk!" often i encounter people riding on the sidewalk and some have the gaul to ring their bell for me to clear the path for them to proceed, excuse me, get in the bloody bike lane ass wipe, moron. Whew...sorry got a bit caught up there. Ooh and drivers that drive at heighten speeds through poodles and soak us pedestrians on the sidewalk, thanks for the kind consideration of slowing down so that I don't get a bath of contaminated water. I do so look forward to drinking the slop you splash my way without a backward glance. Ooopsss...i went off again didn't I...sorry.

    Have a good day....
