EEP! Snow!

It SNOWED today. I'm so not ready for this. Wah! Whine! Moan! Complain!


Okay, so I went wandering off looking for an appropriately dreary picture for this post, and I found the coolest pictures! (The one above is an example.) Check out this site - for some odd reason, they're growing their own snowflakes. Rather like chiapets, I guess.

Since I'm capable of switching focus with lightning-like quickness (read: attention span of a hyper fruit fly), I went from totally bummed to totally intrigued. These people have the right idea! Live someplace warm and grow pretty snowflakes. I like snowflakes on a one-on-one basis; it's when they form a mob that we disagree. And the pictures are beautiful - the post office agrees. Stamps with some of these images will be available in October.

Now, I guess I'm not so bummed about the snow. I guess. *shiver* What was I saying before I got distracted with the pretty shiny things? Hmm. Not a clue. I'm cold. Winter sucks. Is it spring yet? Why in the world am I living near Chicago? I've lost my tiny little mind. Actually, it probably froze solid and shattered. I need more coffee. Later!

See, down here we would be jumping for joy and doing backflips if it actually snowed... and having accidents, and driving into trees, and sliding off the bridges ... but we would be really excited about it.

You *have* to go here:

This is one of my favorite "winter" links! LOL!

Twinks and I have been known to sit around and cut out snowflakes for hours, and then tape them to all of the doors and windows...

If you need to feel a bit more autumnal, then you can carve a "virtual pumpkin" here:

I think maybe I'm spending too much time on the internet... ;)

I love the wordplay of you're liking snowflakes on a one-on-one basis, but not as a mob. I wish I had said that.

Ooh, that is cool. (No pun intended.)
Look on the bright side though: hot chocolate.

Thanks for the nice comment over round my place, mama!
