Quote of the week

LeeAnn’s forecast for the next ninety days:

My point is, I know, we know, everyone knows, summer weather sucks the high hairy one, Sister Katherine, and no one no one NO ONE needs the fact of the upcoming annual spontaneous undie-combustion festival thrown back in their face when they innocently complain about current unpleasant conditions. But we all know someone who does just that. I bet somewhere in the Great White North (NOT a waisis term, climb down off your Sharpton-sponsored soapbox) there is an Eskimo flinching as his SIL bleats “You think THIS is cold? Wait until November/December/January gets here.” The difference is most Eskimos are readily armed with rabid baby seals, so I hear, and can beat anyone they want to a furry pulp with one and scarcely break a sweat. You know, because it’s cold.

It’s said that the Inuit have forty different words for “This weather sucks.” Or something like that.

    Hold it. The atmospheric phenomenon that will be occurring during these summer months is NOT weather. It’s climate.

    Weather only happens in the wintertime.

    And climate only happens when it’s hot.

    The above excerpt is a perfect example of why I adore LeeAnn. I so wish I could think of stuff like that to write. LOL.
