Friday’s Mental Massage
Hellstorm Carolina did not hit as hard as predicted. That left me with a mental cocktail of “Go figure” and “You’re fucking kidding me!” However, to those of you who teased me for fearing the worst (those of you in Missouri, Indiana, and Colorado), I think I failed to properly convey my point. As a native midwesterner, I know weather. I know ice. I went crazy with the ice. The thing is, up there, you only know it’s bad when nobody could drive or leave their homes. Here, it’s different. What happens 15 times a year in the midwest only happens once or twice a year in South Carolina. And when it does, people freak out. Yesterday was a lame weather system. I was able to leave my house in the middle of it and drive around town without sliding once. Still, all schools were closed, Chik-Fil-A was closed, and every parking lot was empty. It was a snowday for the community. So, yes, while I agree our weather here is lame, you should recognize that it’s all relative. Oh, and you should also recognize that the south is a very odd place.
Moving on…my wife didn’t find my Victory post nearly as funny as I did. She’s been sick, though, so her sense of humor may be a little off. Funny thing though. Last night, a CD didn’t start playing the moment she wanted it to. I swear to all that’s holy, she turned around and said, “The CD player is acting up.” Love you, baby.
As for my February goals, I made it through Day 1 (wow!) with no problems and in every way working toward a successful month. BadBlood is speculating on what I could be trying to achieve. He’s hit a couple pretty close.
Finally, to get you into the weekend, I’ll offer a little You Tube goodness. With a background in creative editing, etc, I know what the right music and cool edits can do to change direction of any piece of video. One of the best examples I’ve seen in a while is this.
Happy Groundhog Day, folks.
