Kinda funny.

Poll: blame the weather



Remember the 30+ day rain streak we had going here in Washington?

I broke it

The rain streak ended last weekend when I finally moved here.

I'd like to apologize to the frogs, toads, and other amphibians that were enjoying the great wet days.

I can't guarantee that my sunny disposition will keep the clouds at bay - so enjoy the great weather while you can!!!

There's nothing less manly than a skirt that doesn't twirl just so.

Wait - you've moved?  Closer to your secret intaretc?  With?

Could I get your expert advice by calla (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 08:19:22 AM EST
for the skirt pleating section? My source doesn't have much experience with that.

I have moved in with you know who. I think it must be the end of the world.

Super secret weather control by celeriac (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Feb 09, 2006 at 03:54:56 PM EST
The rain goes away when UW brings the grad school applicants in for interviews. When they go home it should start raining again.

How do they arrange that? by calla (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Feb 09, 2006 at 05:17:14 PM EST
Is Ororo Munroe on the UW staff?

You are the United States Air Force by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 1) #8 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 04:17:17 AM EST

and I CLAIM MY TEN DOLLARS!

Well, I was in New Jersey, by calla (4.00 / 2) #10 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 08:13:34 AM EST
but an hour away from Princeton.

Psst - you want the truth?
Because the commie liberals out here in Washington would never allow weather testing, the Air Force had to go undercover to try their new rain stopping technology. Before I left Jersey, some Air Force guys snuck into the f'ing shelter, and attached the weather controlling device to my toothbrush.

Here's your ten dollars, kid.

Sweet! Virtual Ten Dollars! by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 1) #11 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 08:17:52 AM EST

I'm Virtual Retiring, effective immediately!

The truth is safe with me. Since I love America, I will keep hush-hush about the Air Force Commandos and their toothbrush infiltration device.

After all that poo-pooing of the Air Force SpecOps Commandos by SEALs, Recon Marines, and Delta Forces, I must say I'm surprised they're capable of such a smoothly-run covert mission. Kudos to the United States Air Force, and kudos to you for helping them out.

Congrats on the retirement! by calla (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 08:44:20 AM EST
You'll probably be going to SanFran then?

I knew you loved America. Did you see this?

Before we go on slapping backs and such - breaking into a domestic violence shelter isn't all it's kicked up to be.

The only reason the Witness who was under Federal Protection at the shelter didn't get snuffed was because the mobsters didn't think to look in our county.

The security system at that place sucked. There were several days when a ground level door was left wide open. (That's probably when the Air Force guys got in).

Huh. by blixco (4.00 / 2) #9 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 06:09:03 AM EST
For some reason I expected a late-night sonic boom when you finally got out of the quagmire that was the East and moved to the sucking noise that is the West.

To be fair, you brought the sunlight, which is a great thing.  It bodes well.

In re: all else, it's about goddamn time.  Sheeesh.  I was getting ready to drive you out there myself in a broke-ass Ford with, like, nothing but bottles of Old Sock and some hand-rolled corn cigarettes.

It could have happened.  That's the sort of service I provide.

Damn. The world will never know by calla (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 08:28:42 AM EST
the amazing stories you would have written about that drive.

Hell, make up one of your fantastic tales (make sure you keep the zombies in) - and I'll sign off on it. I'll even photoshop some pictures of us at historic stops along the way.

It will be as if it really happened.

So you're taking responsibility by Greener (4.00 / 2) #18 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 09:52:25 AM EST
for there not being any new snow on the ski hill this week?

You better bring back the precipitation by next week because I'm going cat skiing and am looking forward to plenty of fresh powder.

This is the first time I've seen the sun in 2 months and it's making my eyes hurt.

Hey... by lb008d (2.00 / 0) #19 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 10:32:17 AM EST
I didn't know you skiied. I should drive up there and go with you one of these days. I went to Schweitzer this last Tuesday and there was plenty of powder left in the trees and out-of-bounds.

What cat skiing company are you going with?

I've got a day at Retallack just outside Kaslo by Greener (4.00 / 1) #22 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 11:43:29 AM EST
wit a co-worker sometime this week. We did some woek for trade for them. Once I know what day that's booked for I have a gift certificate for 2 days at Wildhorse (near Ymir) that I need to book. They've got some really good standby rates on right now as well with 48 hours notice but the're website's useless and they're impossible to get a hold of. I'll PM you once I know the dates if you're interested.

I'm also up at Whitewater every weekend.

[ Parent ]
Yes, interested. by lb008d (2.00 / 0) #23 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 01:31:12 PM EST
Kthx.

[ Parent ]
Sure I may be responsible, by calla (4.00 / 1) #20 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 10:42:00 AM EST
but I don't really have any control over the matter.

You should probably take your issue to the Canadian Weather Authority. Bureaucrats there will have you fill out forms and wait in line, to tell you that it's BUSHITLAR's fault.

That BUSHITLAR idiot is a great scapegoat - who will we blame when he's gone?



[ Parent ]
BUSHARPER is our current local equivilant by Greener (4.00 / 2) #21 Fri Feb 10, 2006 at 11:18:00 AM EST
or HARPERHITLER or whatever.

He is also my roommate's mom's sister's husband's cousin. Maybe I'll take the matter up with him directly.
