Blizzard coming Thursday?

Joy in Cos Cob

Cos Cob snow angel

Probably not, given the inaccuracies of computer models (see, e.g., global warming) but if everything cooperates, Thursday and Friday should be a doozy. Keep your shovel by the ready or, for you Greenwich residents, the martinis stirred and the number of your plowman handy.

I’m heading out of town now to be thwarted once again by hooved rats with brains the size of peas, should be back tomorrow night. I don’t do “Amateur Night”, so look for me bright and early New Years Day.

    We’re all dying for your “Predictions for 2014” post.

      I was hoping for a Best and Worst of 2013 post. Then again, the worst out there in the real world is often the best within the minds of FWIW readers so I guess such a post would be redundant.

    Anticipating your being snowed in, here’s some entertainment to get you through those one or two days — Britney Live, as recorded, from Vegas. In defense of her singing, she does hop and bounce around enough to get breathing pretty hard — try singing on your next run around the point. Take a look at Beyoncé: there’s no way she could possibly dance as hard as she does and have the sound you hear coming out of the speakers be real — live, not recorded, that is, unless they have some mysterious, magical black, alchemist’s box they run the shit through.

      Speaking of Beyoncé, here’s a recording of her singing “live” on the Today Show. And unlike Britney she’s not dancing about, so what’s her excuse.

      Phony as Obama? You decide:

      AJ, are you saying that Beyonce has a mysterious black box?

      • AJ

        Yeah, and soon your car will have one so that the government will know everywhere you’ve been (and I wouldn’t be surprised if it recorded everything that you said). We’re also headed for a cashless society, so if you’re thinking of sneaking off and doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that, you can forget about it.

          Seems like a bling accessory.

          SP are a very under-rated band.
          Billy Corgan is incredibly inventive and has technical guitar chops he is not given credit for.
          Jimmy Chamberlin is a true MONSTER on the drums, stands alone with Ginger Baker for jazzy poly rhythms, sheer power , and a natural sense of time
          D’Arcy is merely competent on bass but I never get tired of looking at her. Sad what’s happened to her

      Not surprising that the genre has suffered a decline in the era of readily accessible online porn. What I’d be interested to know is if any of the recipients are family relations or “romantic” partners of N.E.H. bureaucrats.

    Planning on drinking a little too much over the next couple of days and you need to toss it up so you can feel better again, well then, this Oprah-Beyoncé lovefest should do the trick unless, of course, you’re Mr. Bill, or a reasonable facsimile, in which case this might cause you to snuggle your pillow a little more squeezy weasy than usual.

    Great. Two snow days will be used for days when kids should be off anyway. My kids in private school off Thursday and Friday, but the one in Greenwich goes back on Thursday, when the attendance rate will likely be 70%. (And yes, private school is on the slate for child number three).

      Thank you for explaining your superiority – public school products wouldn’t have been able to figure it out from your tone.

    Another yacht awaits fitting-out with the luscious impasto art of Michelle-Marie, a suitable spread-on-thick addition to any head.

      Chris,
      You said:
      “…I’m heading out of town now to be thwarted once again by hooved rats with brains the size of peas,…”
      Walt would probably ask “Thwarted, or outsmarted?”

      Anyway, Good Luck!
