Florida on my mind....

The six day absence of our majestic star that provides warmth and happiness is wearing on me. 1,2,3,4,5,6....days without lifting my head to the sky. One hundred and forty four hours of this depressing ceiling, endless droplets of water and gale force winds leaves me with no choices.... After hours of surfing discount flights, bottles of tan in a can and countless tear soaked Kleenex, madness set in.

Empty pockets and desperate measures I pulled on my floral rubbers. Capped in black I made my way to the nearest bank, channeling the Barbie Bandits. I needed money. Mary Poppins style, I made my way across the street until this...


Ego deflated, twisted ankles and two broken nails I hobbled my way home. Hoping to stumble upon a tanning bed.


*The bank robbing is fictional. No need to alert the authorities. I just like tell stories. I am however still looking for flights south, it is now snowing. Sigh.

Man, I understand. We had 4 days in a row of no rain, and sun. It's amazing what the sunshine can do for your spirits!!

i would so surrender to a tanning bed- but the fetus doesn't have those little eye protectors in there...and i fear for his ocular safety...

*snickers* hahaha I'm sorry but you in that ski mask!!! I'm the opposite of you though. I like the sun, I truly do, but I like it when its overcast a bit better. OR if its sunnnnny but a little chilly, thats my kind of weather. I have to have something cold to feel "right". When summer comes... I become a bitch on wheels because of the heat.

Geez after reading this I'm ready for Florida. And we actually had Spring show up here for two days. Now, of course, we are waiting for the rain and chill to start again. (sigh)
