The sub-moronic ramblings of a semi-functioning illiterate

Sorry, No Fred

Below is a picture of my house that I took on October 30, 2010

Below is a picture I took from my window this morning.

You’ll notice “Fred” is missing from this picture. That’s because Jack Frost kicked his ass.

    • I’ve got the tea ready so head on over!

  2. Heaven should really look into a bottle of Head and Shoulders.

    • No kidding.

      • You realize everytime you post about snow I’m going to respond with something about flaky sky scalp. I’m just warnin’ ya now.

        • You never disappoint, John. It’s a good quality in a man.

  3. My sympathies for your loss…and the snow…that sucks ass. Gotta say.

    • We’re holding a Viking funeral for Fred when the snow melts. I’ll pass along your condolences.

  4. Not a big fan of winter here. BTW, it got up to 65 here yesterday. More of the same today.

    October 30, 2011 at 10:31 am

    • Yeah, you suck. 😉

  5. We got luckier in NYC. About an inch on the ground that is steadily melting.

    I’d like to think Fred beat a strategic retreat to a basement in Vermont, where even now he is raising his army and planning vengeance on those who caused this mid-autumn debacle while drinking lots of hot chocolate….

    Nice house, by the way.

    • Good for you in NY.

      Yeah, Vermont doesn’t have a single citizen even remotely resembling anyone who’d be able to start an army. It’s an entire state full of vegan tree-hugging dirt-worshipers. I know because I picked a few out of the grill of my carbureted eight-cylinder gas guzzler the other day.

      House is nice but a bitch to heat. Lots of sweaters getting handed out around here.

        Um, I think I’m moving to Vermont.

    I’m so jealous. We get snow here about once every 5 years.

    • You can come visit me. We’ll sit by the fire and sip spiced eggnog as we bash mothers-in-law…er, I mean paint our toe nails. Yeah, that’s what I meant.

      October 30, 2011 at 11:48 am

      • savorthefolly

        why don’t we do all three at the same time? nothing goes better with toenail polish and eggnog like some hardcore MIL bashing.

        you know that actually sounds really nice. I haven’t been up in that part of the country in about 20 years, but if you ever find yourself deep in the heart of Texas, I’ll feed you some barbaque and beer – which also goes very well with MIL bashing.

        • OHHH!! Can I ride a horse?! I’ve never ridden a horse in my life! And I want to ride a mechanical bull too. Unless those are only in the movies. And I want to go to a real live rodeo. We’re gonna be busy.

          October 30, 2011 at 12:01 pm

          • savorthefolly

            I’m sure we could arrange for those things to happen. Not sure where to find the nearest mechanical bull but I’m sure if I asked around it wouldn’t be too much trouble to find. I’ve never ridden one either – I’d totally be on board (on bull?) for that!

            October 30, 2011 at 12:13 pm

          • I can’t believe you’ve never ridden a mechanical bull!

            • Knocked my socks off with kneelwdgo!

  7. We’re suffering over here with earthquakes and 65 degree weather. Beautiful pics. Your house is enormous. We call that an apartment house in CA.

    • Cry me a lukewarm River, Les.
      We converted it into a two family house. The ex lives downstairs. Both a blessing and a curse.

    Looks like a ghostly white Halloween this year. Tomorrow should be interesting if we are still without power.

    • Yikes. But at least you can see your way with Jack-O-Lanterns!

    Wow. Um, suddenly I do not want snow.

    October 30, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    • This is NOTHING. Mother Nature is just warming up.

      October 30, 2011 at 7:38 pm

  10. My 11 yr old is looking at your pics and her #1 concern is ‘HOW ON EARTH ARE THEY GOING TO TRICK OR TREAT IN THAT’? She gets her empathy from her father.

    October 30, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    • My 11 year old said the exact same thing! Then her dad said he’d take her out on his snowmobile, so all is right with the world again.

      October 30, 2011 at 7:51 pm

  11. That’s jacked up. Get it?

    October 30, 2011 at 8:20 pm

  12. Poor Fred! I got a little chilly just looking at that picture. No snow here – it was a lovely, breezy, sunny day with a high of about 80 or so and low humidity. The low humidity is how we know fall has arrived.

    October 30, 2011 at 9:33 pm

  13. Snowmobile trick-or-treating sounds like fun. Kind of blows if you had a costume you really wanted to show off, though!

    October 30, 2011 at 9:42 pm

  14. That looks like MN for 9 months of the year. at least.

    October 31, 2011 at 7:42 am

  15. Suppose to snow here again, this week. What is going on with mother nature!!!!!!
