I hate snow and so does Mr. Freeze

There a few things in life that I would catogorize under hate.  Brutal dictators, animals throwing up on the carpet, the sound the old 56k modems would make when dialing out and of course... Last, but not least, snow!  Now why would a man that hates snow live in Chicago?  That's a good question, while I ponder this myself, I will tell you that I am going to move back to California this summer just because of the snow and cold of this last winter.

If a person asked me what it was like to live through a Chicago winter, I would probably explain it like this.  Remember in one of the Batman movies, (Filmed in Chicago) Mr. Freeze would come into a scene and just freeze everything in sight?  It's kind of like that!  It goes on like this for months.  You are pretty much a prisoner in your own home durring these winter months, unless that is you want your face to freeze while you walk to the subway and go out.



I'm not the only one that shares this opinion.  I have had the pleasure of talking with many other Chicago residents that have said they are soon on  the way out too.  From everywhere to North Carolina to Texas or like me, back to California.  Hell, even Mr. Freeze himself got tired of the cold Chicago winters and moved back to California.  He even became the Governor of the State!   Well wishes to all and lets hope for an early spring.

Another Blogger...

Just what the world needs, another man sitting in his underwear, talking about what is on his mind.  It actually is just what the world needed.  And here it is! 

Sure beats Nascar; I can't believe that I watched that today.  You talk about a slow time of the year for sports.  My god, if you catch me watching Nascar, it's pretty bad.

I just don't get it, it's just men driving around in a circle... ALL day.  And it's not so bad that its men just driving around in a circle.  It's listening to two other men talk about men driving around in a circle.  "Well, I think he's going to make a left turn".  "And when he gets out of that turn, he's gonna try and go faster". 

This goes on for four hours.  For some reason, I just could not look away.  Fascinated that people sit and watch this all day, I found myself sitting around watching it all day.  And you know what, I'll probably watch more of it.  I can't wait for the next race.  I'm gonna pull for Dale Jr. this time.
