Praying For Snow

Sitting in the sweltering heat, praying for snow in the fiery pits of Hell, aka Brisbane on a hot summer's day, or at lest some relief from this torturous sweat. I guess it's not so much that it's overly hot for this time of year, but the humidity after all that rain we've just had, the water vapour on the verge of condensing, floating all around in the stagnant air, is just unbearable.

Working on the website over at Jerry's today, sweating profusely, literally dripping, the only question in my mind was, 'why oh why did he have to move to a place with no air-conditioning?' After dinner, Jerry decided we should watch Fargo as both Lyn and I hadn't seen it, which seemed to come as an absolute astonishment to Jerry.

The movie was set in the snowy region of Fargo, North Dakota and the whole time, watching that steamy breath coming out of everyone's mouth as they spoke, all I wanted to do was get on a plane and just fly off to somewhere in the northern hemisphere where it's winter and snowing. I've never really seen the snow, except for the ice that gets all caked up inside the freezer and can be scraped off and mushed into a little snowball, but I don't think that counts. I really should go sometime.

I used to love the snow. Until I got pins in my leg. Now the cold sucks. Sorry your so hot though, it's freezing here. Fargo was slow and generally dull. Just my two cents!

I really enjoyed Fargo, well shot and lots of interesting concepts to think over.

I loved the movie, and love the snow. But the unfortunate side effect of snow would be the bitter cold that I don't think ANYONE actually loves. I love the idea of a "White Christmas". Waking up to single digit temperatures with negative wind chills REALLY sucks. You would probably like to visit, but you'd be pretty glad to have the option of leaving after a while, I think.
