Weather and all that Jazz

So, Earle's
presence is being felt as I write, however moderate it may be. It feels like winter and the wind is strong and loud as loud. No rain today..yet, though? To be honest, I was kinda hoping for something more than strong blustery winds, but alas. It is cozy weather though.

One of the outside cats is smart, if not mean, he bit me a few weeks ago...blood and all. I was petting him and he chomped down, but he had the sense to stay in the garage today, which he isn't allowed to do, but I found him there, and it's scary weather, so I fed him there too.

I wish I could get the cool-as-hell job of being a person who names the weather conditions. Fuck, how cool would that be? You see a tornado a comin', and you get to check your alphabetized roster of names and select one or just make one up connected with where in the alphabet you're at. Tropical storms get the same deal too. I just think it would be cool.

I also wish to become a paint namer. There's a paint colour called "Aha moment". Can you imagine the conversation: I'd like the Aha Moment on the walls and the Einstein's brain on the ceiling. No, no that's the wrong shade of brain. I said Einstein's not Kruschev. "
Those would be in the line of political house paints, which would be directly next to the paints that are named for moments in your life, any moment, like, say the moment you remembered where you put the paint.


  1. I would love to name paints...Moody Blue...Bi Polar White....agent Orange heehee. How are you sweetie?

  2. I dig those names of yours, I see your Agent Orange and I raise you Yellow Submarine!:)
