LA Freezes Over?
From the winter passed, online news from LA.
I don’t expect much sympathy but wanted you all to know that we are freezing here. We’ve got the heat on for the last two days!
After a balmy return to 80+ weather on Jan 26, things have been going downhill. Today, during the day repeat during the day in downtown LA, it was 51 degrees Fahrenheit. I think this may be a plot for a new movie – there were movie trucks outside my building when I arrived at work. Imagine, “LA in the cold” or LA freezes over – all die”.
While driving into work this morning, I could see the mountains east of downtown. Totally covered in snow, like the Alps or the “mountains” where people ski north of Toronto. It was picturesque but scary. Last winter, we could see the snow on the mountain tops – that is the TOPs not the whole fucking mountains!
Needless to say, we did not go cycling down at the beach yesterday to admire this spectacle (who ever thought up that word?). Instead, like good Americans we went out to buy a new TV. Yeah! Ran it up on the plastic. Got home only to find out that my home theater system (note the US spelling) and cable box are two generations out of date! This is definitely an American scam/conspiracy to ensure we keep spending to get the economy going again. We will have to personally help Obama out of this mess. Of course, L as an American taxpayer should receive some sort of rebate again this year – she got $300 last April after only working 3 months in the last calendar. We’re part of the solution.
For those of you not familiar, this is Reagan/Bush/Obama economics or R&BObamics for short. Beats Laytonomics or Chretienomics (tax the shit out of everyone so they all remain equally poor). By the way, L’s tax rebates do not show up on the US equivalent of a T4. Ha ha Revenue Canada! Gotcha!
Anyway, tired of ranting and just ran out of my weekend beer (I always manage to keep a few for Monday night when L and E go out for their sex yoga class with the narcississy – just kidding but the fag also teaches naked yoga). He lothes himthelf, thit.
Pray for better weather for me. I know I’m in your prayers, you heathen. I’d better be.
