Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Signs of spring

Forget the vernal equinox and other "official" definitions. Here are the real signs that spring is here:

  • Forget the first robin. It's the first dandelion that really means spring is here.
  • You see blossoms on the trees, smell their unusual odor, and suffer from their allergies.
  • You finally pull out the lawn mower, but need to wear a sweater when mowing the lawn.
  • You think about planting your garden, then think better of it - another day of frost is sure to come.
  • You pull out white clothes not seen since Labor Day.
  • You have to turn on your car's air conditioner, even though it's chilly outside, since the sun has baked your car's interior all day.
  • You need to push aside one of the blankets from the bed. You don't dare put it away, since you know the temperature can drop at any time.
  • You get the first juicy bug splattered on your windshield.
  • There are only 8 teams still fighting for playoff spots in the NBA.
  • Gas prices rise. (Also a sign that summer is here, that fall is here, and that winter is here.)

Update: Welcome, Carnival of the Vanities readers. Some of my favorite posts are here.
