It is Satanic weather here today.

Degrees Celcius: 26, 66% humidity

No shirt, no shoes, no socks, and no whisper of a breeze to take the edge off things.

No wonder I feel even at 4:13 pm! (now)

Ghyle, Wake up there little blue and sweaty, I think that we are following each other again. I stayed up tonight (10pm here) to see if you were going to be around and I think we are one step ahead or behind again! Sorry it is so sticky there, here it has been fairly nice a little cool, but nice sun and warm in mid-day. A lovely Christmas day though, see you around in here.

My sweet Lady, let us rejoice, not as missing one another, but at the pleasures that technology afford, so that we can all congregate and add our voices to a choir of Anne fans and frivolity.

The weather is still hot and sticky. I am waiting to hear when it will rain, thereby relieving the humidity somewhat, until it all builds up again.

27 degrees centigrade, 64% humidity, and it is quarter to 5 in the late afternoon.

You needn't chase me around; you can take a stroll anywhere in the Library Cafe, and I will surely traipse past you at some point.

Hey, all, Alaskan Devie is checkin' in.

First off, hello to all the new folks since I left home!

And Yes, I made it home safely, and boy it's warmer than I thought! Christmas went alright, we woke up later, than I thought, and I opened pressies in afternoon, and then watched Fantastic Four.

Hi Devcca, glad to see that you got back safe and sound. Warm, in Alaska are you sure you don't have a fever?
How was Fantastic Four, good I hope I really want to see it.

It's not as warm as here: 80 degrees F, 64% humidity. I'd nap if I hadn't napped myself out, and now I'm bright eyed and bored-tailed!

Benden White or Tillik red, Ghyle?

And just because Devvie said it was "WARMER THAN EXECTED" doesn't mean it was actually warm.

Now, someone pass me a back brace.

Well, it was warm here, and I doubted that Alaska would be as warm and enervated as I was.

It's going to be a long, hot day today, and I shall probably wilt.

White will do very nicely, thank you.

Will my plaid back brace with fox tail and bells and whistles help?

How was Fantastic Four, good I hope I really want to see it.
Slow at the begining, once they realized their power, it's get funny, and a lot more stuff happens. Dr. Doom was slow to notice his powers. Well, it was also good for the effects. my lasting quote is from Jonny Storm. "Care to join me?" when he was in a pool of warm water from his flames.

No I don't have a fever. I'm used to Freezing weather.

I don't have much humidity, and that's hot for me, pappa Gyle. And I'm glad I like the cold better than warm. I got to see Ice fog!

Devcca, I am glad to hear that you don't have a fever. I am also glad that the movie was decent, I use to realy like the Fantastic Four when I was young. Though if truth be told I use to like almost all science fiction, back then. It was so interesting, it would make your mind go to far places. Now you have to cover your eyes through half of the movie for all the blood or ghastly special effects. What happened to the good ole days of sci-fi.



P.S.That sound like a good thread starter!

It's no wonder that Antarctica is the world's dryest continent, what with all that ice, and very litle precipitation.

Right now, 4:15 pm, 84 degrees F/c. 28 degrees C, 64% humidity. I'm sweating as well, and there's no breeze to speak of.

Oh, for an icy pole!

Actually, some enterprising soul DID make a snowman here, despite the sparcity of snow. What there was was extremely good packing. They shoveled up a pile in the parking lot, and turned it into a snowman. I'd take a picture, but the garbage truck knocked it to pieces this morning.

It was good. It remember when it was on TV, and we watched it, we as me and my siblings. I so far liked all the marvel remakes. So far, I haven't disliked any of 'em. I'm trying to get Elektra.

Dragongirl, I realy don't think that you are missing anything, stick your arm in the freezer part of your refridgerator, for about five minutes and you get a good idea of a nice cold snowy day. I had snow every year for thirty two years, and I am so glad to be out of it now, I do not miss it at all.

Although, it is lovely and green all year round where I am, and I enjoy looking at the mangroves along the river banks. Plus, the winters are lovely and warm, and must be the best part of the year. Except for the annual 50s Rock'n'Roll festival that they put on in Coolangatta.

I don't know that any is available on the web Myt, or even if Ista Weyr would share it with non-members. You'd have to try to contact Marilyn Alm to find out what's available. I may have some contact information from her; I'll PM it to you.
