A little more about the weather

Best quote about our recent snowy weather from a fellow depressed Edmontonian:

'It reminds me of a movie I watched years and years ago called “Gulag”. The only part of the movie I even slightly recall is a scene in which the unjustly convicted prisoner, who has been living in the hellish conditions of club Gulag is told that he is getting a visit by his family. He is allowed to change out of the rotting clothes he has been wearing for years, have a shower, shave, and given a clean suit. Once he’s all clean and dressed his captors tell him it’s all a lie, and make him change back into his filthy clothes.'

Not your average smirk

If you see me smirking this week, please understand that it is with good reason.

'It's the Week of the Fabulous Smirk. Not the Week of the Arrogant Smirk or the Vengeful Smirk or the Hateful, Whiny, Passive-Aggressive Smirk. Rather, the Smirk that Passeth All Understanding. The Wise, Charitable, Forbearing Smirk. The Uber-Smirk that says, "I've figured out what everyone's hiding, and I love them anyway." You are ready, Scorpio, to explore the Divine Smirk that arises naturally when you have outwitted an obstacle that was obscuring the truth from you; when you have finally seen through the delusion you were under and guessed the secret you weren't smart enough to see before.'

I do have the best horoscopes!

What the hell was that?

As I get older, I find I am subjected to more and more of these 'what the hell was that' moments when it comes to random aches and pains in my body.
Like today - I stand up and for no apparent reason my right knee feels all wonky.
I mean, WTF? I'm presently in my off-season, in between indoor and outdoor soccer seasons. This is my rest and recuperation time. So how is it that my body is complaining about my taking some R&R?
Stupid body! I hate when things break just when the warranty is over...

Fuck you, Tallguy!

Why is it that 5 minutes before the start of a show - everyone is standing around - happy where they are, waiting for the band to start. Then some tall fuck, shoves his way to stand pretty much directly in your line of sight?
Seriously - this happens at every show I've ever gone to. 99% of the people are happy to bounce around more or less where they planted themselves from the start of the show (now I'm not talking mosh pit here - up there - more bouncing is kind of expected). But there's always some idiot who needs to shove his way right in front of you.
Some days I need Darwin to work a little faster.
