Winter what-the-fuck-land


















Such a fimbulvetr* that even we closed yesterday & we never close, & during finals week of all epochs -- Invasion of the Thought Snatchers! Pod people say the worstest is that the sequel to Customer Service Training Day was missed! Gasp! -- & now those poor shlubs gotta schlep on down next week to get their makeup on.



















Squirrel, you have got the brass.



















Kitchen window art.



















Imagine how pretty that would look in the hands of a real photographer.

*it wasn't that bad, but apparently, certain people are currently shocked that it gets cold & snowy & icy in Cleveland in December. With that said, if you've got a job that won't can your ass for being late -- comical these days, I know -- make sure you're late. Don't leave an hour early, an hour of your time, for the sole benefit of The Man.

See, you have proven that Al Gore is fat and the Global Warming is a Hoax!

Well done.

those frost shots are beautiful.

Here in Canada, that's what we call (with an eye roll and a snicker of course), a light dusting. Glad that you got the extra day that you were wanting though... :P

Beautiful pictures! I'd say that you have the potential to be a great photographer!

I wish I could show up late for my job. Pffft. :)

((Hugs))

Here, hear, fricking hier. (I don't know how it's supposed to be spelled.)

Snow should be an indication that we should slow down and appreciate some quiet beauty, but instead it makes us even more harried, makes us rush around to destroy our lives for our bosses even more. And in order to allow us to do that, we make the snow not beautiful anymore. FUCKED UP, we are.

if, hey, I'm getting fat(ter). Oh shit, *I* am Al Gore!

thatgirl, lucked out on those. Just happened to be doing the dishes when I saw them. An hour later, the frost was an uninteresting film that filled all of the glass.

sunshine, believe you me, I had to double and triple check that we were closed. Sure, it snowed, but hell, Buffalo would snicker.

Who says you can't show up late for your job? Tell those ungrateful punks to pack their own damn lunches. :)

ethan, hier, hiver? I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere, heh & amen. Look, we're rushing, customers are rushing, you think admin or the bosses are flying in to work? Fuck no. (well, maybe those weirdo workaholic types, but as I said, weirdos.)

Hey... I hate fucking winter... just so I am clear on that. I mean, and think about it, you CANNOT drink beer and snow-blow at the same time! I mean....they photos are nice....even nice-nice....but I can see snow on the NatGeo channel iffen needed!

last Satzerday we got a goddam 12 inches, 45mph wind and then the temps dropped. Try walking to the bar in -23 wind chill!!

I hate fucking winter!!!!!

But you're a nice boy. Thanks for letting me vent.

And that's plain good advise! Don't waste your time as they certainly will not waste their time on you! ;-)

Just you wait until the next round of sun spots and solar flares. Al will get the last laugh. Try making it through the day without cell service and no net. Now to plan my beach front property in Montana.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

You'll get no sympathy from me! I'm shivering here in Californiastan. It's probably in the low 60°s here, and I had to put on long pants today to pick some lemons from the tree to make cocktails tonight.

When will this suffering end?

Regards,

Tengrain

Beautiful pictures. I love winter.

This year, the rainy Pacific Northwest beat you to it. The week before Thanksgiving we had a huge snowfall and c-c-c-cold (for us) temperatures.

We're still in the so far so good part of winter here. Yesterday it was 60 under sunny skies.. but I feel for you and the squirrel.

Brrr, those fine photos are enough to make a guy want to get cozy indoors with a good hot cup of his favorite coffee.

If I could have my way, everyone forced to suffer through cold, wet, windy, snowy winters would get a free two-week break in the tropics. The only problem is that many wouldn't come back.

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, this you CANNOT drink beer and snow-blow at the same time! is a lie. Why do you think they invented beer hats?

liberality, only when pink slipping your ass!

demeur, I knew it. Al is a plant working for the solar flare monsters.

tengrain, 60°? That *is* suffering. Much too warm. I'll take one or five of those cocktails, though.

tom, 'bout time someone agrees. Must be a metal thing. And that is a bit early for you. Of course, we didn't get our first snow until December, equally strange. Damn you, solar flare monsters!

Tiffany Jewelry, is that you?

susan, the squirrel had it bad, especially considering I think he picked our front and back lawns clean of acorns awhile back. I dig the snow, plus I got an extra day off, a classic peon win-win.

SWA, I hear ya, just as long as it's not that awful Starbucks.

Hmmm. Will you be expanding your getaway program to the politicians? Send them on a backwoods Amazon rafting trip. What could *possibly* go wrong for a bunch of pasty, coddled crackers.

So, put some peanuts out for the hard-working little guy. Quid pro quo, and all that.
