Journal SiliconJesus's Journal: For the 31st straight year its snowed on my birthday... 9

Its weird. Every birthday of mine it snowed or there's been snow on the ground (significant) from a previous snowfall. I only went to school on my birthday my senior year (and we were 2 hours late). I'm deciding whether or not to go into work today. On one hand, its a nice day to not drive into work and deal with yahoos on the road in the H2's thinking that because they have it in 4WD they don't have to slow down, but on the other hand my present is getting delivered to the office today (new 2ms LCD).

  • Does that mean that you're 31, or is that just a count from when you can remember? I don't remember exactly where you live, but I'm pretty sure that it ain't the Tropics;-)

    I'm also a fellow Aquarius by the way. Don't know if you ever saw this, but your Star Wars Horoscope is:

    You can be cruel and torment people who disagree with you.
    Deep down, there is a peace-loving, friendly side to you.
    You have a knack for inflicting pain on people and use your intellect during battle.

    Star wars character you are

    • I'm 31, but I have pictures of my birthday parties when I was much younger, and there's always snow on the ground.
  • My sister's birthday is December 19th. Wherever she happens to be on that day, it snows. Sometimes not a signifigant amount, but always something. We were kidding her this year because the NE had a record-breaking warm streak in December. Come the 19th, there was snow anyway.
    • She should go to Jamaica next year, just for shits and giggles. Their bobsled team could use the practice, mon!

    Apparently we're due "heavy" snow tomorrow (by "heavy", I mean a comparatively light 100mm or so). Still, it's only the second time we'll have had snow this year (we had a light dusting, perhaps a couple of mm in December). When I was a child, we regularly had enough snow to go tobogganing every year. We had enough that my dogs disappeared in the drifts when they went out into the garden. I can't remember when we last had that much snow here. But of course, global warming is a myth. Yeah, right.

Real programs don't eat cache.
