To borrow a phrase from Grey’s Anatomy…”Seriously?!” “Seriously.” This cold weather has got to stop. The windchill was 13 degrees this morning. It is slowly putting me in a crummy mood. Last night, I finished schoolwork ahead of schedule, went to the gym and ran 4 miles in just under 41 minutes March to the Mini update and my favorite show Studio 60 was on. I should have been in like Flynn; instead as I drifted off to Never Neverland I felt myself succumbing to the mystical forces that foreshadow a cranky attitude. It descended upon me like a dour dove, pressing me deep into the bed with its darkness. I can only attribute it to the cold, because everything else is going my way these days…even work. So, come on Winter, get thee to a warmer climate.
In other news…
- The Hubble telescope’s main camera has shut down. This is disappointing news for the scientific community as well as citizens with an interest beyond the upper atmosphere.
- France beginning a smoking ban. I don’t really remember France being all that smoky, not Paris anyway. Could be I just ignored it, but this is great news for people who really cannot stand secondhand smoke.
- United Nations to confirm climate change. No shit! Really?! It wasn’t all a big hoax. Hmm, I guess 82% of the world can’t be wrong. Just goes to show you that George Bush doesn’t really know everything.
- Barbaro laid to rest. Okay, this one really gets to me. 46 million Americans without/can’t afford health care, and this horse is “resurrected” at least twice according to veterinary medicine before being put down? I know this makes me seem like a heartless bastard who doesn’t like animals, but come on. Any other non-Derby winning horse would’ve been glue months ago.
Okay, I’ve ranted enough. Besides, I have to go back outside in 45 minutes to attend, of all things, a Climatology class. Maybe we’ll come up with a solution to this cold weather. Seriously!
