    Obsessive Rep Point Checkers Club (Volume VI)

    How often do you check your rep points? Do you wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat wondering what people have said about you? Do you give a big "WOO HOO" whenever you get more points?

    If so, this is the club for you...sporting its own clubhouse and comfy chairs. Come on in!!

    I was born in Utah and we had snow there. Now I don't get much snow... and I miss it.

    Ah, yes, Utah would get a fair amount of snow. I am originally from Canada. I don't miss snow at all.

    I enjoy snow when travelling, because it's a novelty (it doesn't snow in Melbourne). It's like fancy rain!

    So, I had large couscous with dinner (big balls*, rather than little specks), and now it's expanding in my stomach. Like, ridiculously. Oops. Better keep that in mind next time I make/eat it. Small portion only, BF.

    You don't miss snow? It's so great! (outside, at least, where I can look at it but not get caught in it)

    See? There's the spirit! It's so pretty to look at. :3

    Nope. Had enough of snow to last a lifetime. I don't mind looking at pictures of it, but that's about it.

    Yeah, I suspect if I had to live with it and shovel my driveway or whatever, the novelty would wear off pretty quickly. But I still remember the first time I awoke to a world turned fully white (in Sapporo). It was a very cool experience. Also, literally.

    Yeah. It tends to lose its charm when you have to spend twenty minutes cleaning off your car before you can go to work. *g*

    Plus, you haven't really lived until you've done a 360 degree spin-out on an 8 lane highway. *g* (yeah, I did that. Fortunately it was late at night so there was no danger of hitting anyone else.)

    Yoiks. But what about trees? You can always hit trees!

    Not on the 401 between Oshawa and Toronto. 8 lanes and no trees in sight.

    In that case, you probably couldn't hope for a luckier time and place to do your 360 spin-out. Lucky kookaburra is lucky.

    Yep. If you gotta do a 360, that was definitely the time and place to do it.

    So, yeah, I don't miss snow at all. *g*

    Can't remember if I've ever posted this here before, but this is my favourite cars-on-a-snowy-road footage. (From Dec 2016). They just keep coming and coming and coming. And it's hilarious.

    I have seen that one before. *g* Hills are not good when it's snowy. *g* Particularly when the salt trucks haven't been around.

    I wish it snowed and that we got real cold here (not 10 deg. C pretend cold). I was a little kid in Boston, and I still miss snowmen and sledding and all that, though I barely even remember it. Australian childhoods just aren't as ... magical?

    I also prefer rain to sunshine, though, so maybe I'm just weird for precipitation.

    Snow is great fun when you're a kid. Particularly on the rare occasion when you get a snow day from school. It's not quite so much fun as an adult.

    Yep, I have to say it, you're weird for preferring rain to sunshine, Alby. *g*

    I'm pretty sure heaps of beach-loving kids would disagree. I hate sand, so I'm not one to comment, though. (Also, Boston is lovely).

    So do I . Mr. BF thinks I'm insane.

    He may be right, just not necessarily about the rain thing.

    If I had my way, it would only rain at night - between midnight and 4am. *g*

    Only raining at night sounds good - that's what it does in Hawaii a lot of the time. Bastids. Ugh, suppose I ought to get ready for my appointment instead of noodling around here.

    Aren't we due for a new thread right about now? lol

    Yep, we're sort of overdue. I'm sure one of the mods will realize sooner or later.
