    This is unacceptable:
    a) My toes haven't been warm in over a week.
    ii) Flights to Florida shouldn't be so expensive when we Northerners want to escape somewhere 70-80 degrees warmer.
    3) I don't know what my third point was now, but it was something really good and cranky.

    Porter, what else gets poached in your neck of the woods?

    Tiddly, I'm working on some chocolate-covered rum raisin in chocolate ice cream right now. I call it Bunny Pellet Ice Cream because of a certain Bunneh.

    I've never been to Florida but it certainly seems to be the hoppin' place right now. Another AWer is currently moving there and should be there by the end of the week.

    Oh, I have no desire to live there. I just have no desire to be here right now when it's this cold. Meh.

    *goes off to torture more pirates*


    ETA: Not that Florida isn't a nice place to live. I just hate humidity. And I like four seasons. Except right now.

    The more winters I see, the less I like them. I can understand why a place like Florida is Death's waiting room.

    Don't come to Florida right now! You'll hate it because EVERYBODY waits until it's miserable up north and they're desperate to get warmth and sun and flock here like a wildebeest migration making the roads congested and the stores packed and the beaches saturated like basking seals and then they complain because we're also having a cold snap and it's only 50 and the water is chilly and it's not fair because they spent so much money and only have one week's vacation and they decide it's not paradise after all then go home broke but happy to sleep in their own bed because yadayadayada..

    I'm with reg. I just had to warm up the car in -10 (BEFORE windchill)...I'm praying my one work trip gets scheduled to Florida in later February.

    That is precisely why I moved here. Could. Not. Take. One. More. Michigan winter.

    Okay okay... you're welcome to stay with me. Just make sure you bring wine..

    I complain more and more each winter, but the truth is if I was really that fed up with it, I would have done something about it.

    I think that was whine they were talking


    Ill still take the sub zero weather since about the only place south of say the MasonDixon line I would live would be San Diego even though maybe on the other hand Im not so sure it is as nice as it was 50 yeers ago give or take when I was there and it is in California which has other cities that are not as great as they were when I was there 50 yeers ago give or take and something tells me I might not have a good idea if I invest a bunch of money and time and stuff in a state that thinks it might want to become a country which might not be the best place to be when the US pulls out all of the assets they will have used to have had there like a lot of the assets I would used to have been about to get if some of my better ideas didnt go as far south like way below the masonDixon line after I had them or if I would have actually tried and tried some of them again since you can only get out of something what you put into it while you are living and learning and not crying wolf over spilled sour grapes like the hare did when he lost that big race to the tortoise who tried and tried again because he knew he could after all that was well might not have ended so well if he sat kike a bump on a log because

    I've tried to save up for a trip south on several occasions and it just never panned out. Once I get a car that runs well, I'll try again. I really want to see a lot of different places in the south.

    This is a complete and utter lie. Definitely a lie. *thinks about everything she's put her car through* Yep, lies.

    As for Ted's car? Um...person who does NOT write zombie sex can't answer that with a straight face.
