404

Andrew Ian Dodge dealt me a good one this week: the 404th Carnival of the Vanities was a smidgen late going up, and I was all ready to do a “404 Carnival Not Found” bit about its absence.

Then the actual Carnival appeared, back-dated to the proper Thursday, commemorating snowstorms in both Washington and London, which foiled that particular plan. Still, neither D.C. nor Westminster exactly qualifies for ski-resort status at the moment; for that, you need something like Whistler Blackcomb, the resort north of Vancouver where the Alpine Skiing events for the 2010 Olympics were held, where the average snowfall in the winter is an impressive 404 inches.

    Hey, I warned you about that.

    (Myself, I’m waiting for the Dodge Magnum 426 Carnival, the Ford 427 Carnival, and, God Willing, the Cadillac 520 Carnival.)
