    Really hot down here... it got up to 80 degrees in the house with the windows open last night. I almost turned on the air conditioning...

    Sucks for all you guys getting the snow - We are about to get rain out of the whole system hitting the east coast...

    I am hoping that it will get cold enough to use the fireplace a few times this coming year...

    Oh, I am going to Disney next week (anniversary, etc). It will be freezing, but dry, so it should be lots of fun. Ok, ok, not quite *freezing*, but lows down into the 40's...
    Peace

    We've been running the ac nonstop. If we don't, we melt.

    We are moving to another house at the end of next week, when my Winter Break begins. It's got an avocado tree, lime trees, a starfruit tree, a Bougainvillea tree, and my favorite tree ever: the beautifully canopying Wild Tamarind tree. This tree had pods that dry up and when they blow they go, "shhhhhhhhhhhhhh".
    Plus, there are many Banyan trees canopying the main road at the end of the block.

    There is no attic, so there are "vaulted ceilings" (I can't stand that term) in every room with the silver ac ducts showing (I love that). Since the overhead wood is painted white, it looks like a cottage in Key West. There's even a little room (that is all windows, all the way around) in the back which I am turning into the home gym.

    There is a fireplace. It's fake as fuck and lights up with these little tins of alcohol get or something, just for show. Weird.

    Anyhow, I am happy to be moving to the yellow house. That's what we're doing.

    Just to make ourselves a bit cold and miserable, we are going to North Carolina for a few days in mid-January. I'm allergic to wintertime.

    hehe, wow talk bout a green thumb girl, awesome. moving can be a lot of work but after you do the payoff will be well worth it. you know an awesome idea my girlfriend did with her fake fireplace. She decorated it with lights sorta stuffed on the inside and then played it off with some antique metal just because she's into the country theme.

    anyways, i hope you enjoy doing all the new decorating and good oxygen from all the greenery.

    ahh enjoy the brief cold, i'm up here in the middle of another bad snow storm!

    20"+ of snow on my roof so far...was on a ladder last night shovelling it off because we've got ice damning that created a leak in our breezeway.

    (but with all the snow I'm going to build one hell of a fort for the kids )

    wait, wait...you have kids now?...now i know i'm really out of the loop..

    Hear my sissy cry:
    It's been cold since Monday morning, fluctuating between 50-70 degrees. Ok, I am tired of it. It hurts me inside. Physically. I feel pain from this temperature. What the hek am I gonna' do for those days in North Carolina next month?????


    I got my new house keys last night. Ten minutes after my landlord called to let me know that I could pick up my keys, I got an email that there were a crapload of computer boxes available downstairs (in the school building).
    I got 10 big boxes. Now I can move smoother.

    BTW, rib, I have a deep love for plant life but my thumbs are not green. I once killed a cactus and a tropical bonzai, all in one season. The cactus melted somehow, and the bonzai grew mold. I can't even get bamboo to grow during the rainy season. I kept forgetting about the plants and then overcompensating with water and touching.
    Moral: self-absorption turns green thumbs brown.

    Okay - now this morning I had a fire on my roof because my salting of the ice on the roof caused water to puddle where my icicle lights were plugged in. So...that was fun.

    Not bad...just a few inches of charred shingles...it was mostly contained to the cords of the lights that went up.

    Well, we haven't had too much cold... it's been normal... but I know we're in for the good old icey roads in January and February... I guess it doesn't get consistantly cold til around this time...

    Ok, I've never been in snow. Ice and light flutters, yes, but not snow so I wouldn't have an opinion about it either way. But whenever people from "up North" move down to Miami and say, "This isn't even a real Christmas 'cause it's so dang hot!.....Back home, we would be playing in the snow!" (or something to that effect), I have a new response I give to them: "Christmas isn't a temperature!"

    I wonder if it will be snowing in North Carolina next month? I've been to that state at least 20 times, in summer and early fall only.


    Louis, I'm sorry you hate the snow while living so far North at the same time. Maybe, you can get snowed in and write some more of your poems. They are grand.


    Brian, a fire? Wow. That's scary.

    Roofs taste pretty bland by themselves. Salting them helps.

    Ba-dum-ch!
    I just don't end up where think I'm going when I start out.
