I know it's wrong, but it amuses me that we are expecting yet another nor'easter to hit today. Not because I enjoy shoveling snow and slogging around in resulting slush once it starts melting, but because people always seem surprised when the first day of Spring does not arrive and turn out to be a day that is 60 degrees Fahrenheit and sunny. Everyone always seems so shocked, and it just seems that this year, Mother Nature is saying, tough luck suckers!
I am sad that it might mark the end of our daffodils that started to bloom. But they bloomed for my birthday, and that was good enough for me, if they can't hang around for a while after today. I love daffodils, and consider them my birthday flower. I take it very personally if none have shown up by then.
Anyway, I am somewhat disorganized at the moment, but wanted to post something, so I decided to borrow Nance's Monday Meme, called Love/Hate Relationships. (Yes, it's Tuesday. So sue me.)
1. What kind of song/kind of music always makes you feel good/irritated?
I like most music in general, but I will say that songs by The Beatles make me feel good. "Modern" music (for example, Philip Glass) makes me irritated. Big time.
2. What are among your best/worst traits?
Best: Self-discipline, loyalty, empathy
Worst: Impatience, quick judgement, bad temper
3. What food did you used to like but now you don't?
Marsala veggie burgers from Trader Joe's. The Tim still really likes them, but I can't stand them anymore.
4. What book did everyone else love but you didn't?
The Girl on the Train. I could not stand any of the characters, and would not have been upset had said train crashed on page 4 or so.
5. Fill in the blanks: I love my _________, but I hate (its/their/the) __________.
I love my house, but I hate to clean it (though once I get started, it's fine, and I'm always happy with the result).
I love my country, but I hate the current administration and their ilk.
OK, that was fun. And it meant I had a legit post for today. Feel free to answer in the comments, at Nance's original post, or on your own blog.
Stay warm and safe if you are in the path of the crazy weather!
