And yes, that was enough snow today to close the schools, most businesses are closed, the grocery stores are sold out with people stocking up. There was a traffic accident on I-85 last night that still has traffic backed up this morning over 2 counties. Here's a closer shot of that dogwood tree:
There are flower buds under all of that snow and ice! This is not cool. This is the kind of storm that screws up local farmers crops sometimes. Watch the price of peaches and strawberries this summer. They are going to be through the roof now because this stuff will have damaged the trees. What was I just saying about spring? Oh, and next friday, high 67, saturday is going to be sunny and 68 degrees. I'd say march came in like a lion, and cancelled my master's swim practice for this morning.
Apparently I've started a dick war with Glaven. I really didn't mean too, it just kind of happened. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a rough and funny morning I was having involving doughnuts, vomit, and getting punched in the dick. Well Glaven's wife, in her independant and infinite wisdom has apparently latched onto the term "meat punch" that I used in that post. Now she is constantly threatening him with it and he lives in constant fear for his junk. She's taken it to the level of adding her comments to his posts threatening him with meat punching. Apparently, I am supposed to accept responsibility for his pain and fear from living in a terrorist state. It's gotten so bad, he came up with a color code system as described here:
Yes, he wrote an entire post about his current meat punching threat level. Now I have to admit, I really like reading Glaven's stuff. It may be true that his comments on other people's blogs are sometimes funnier than his own postings, but we can't hold that against him. Even the best situational comic needs to be put in a funny situation sometimes to be his best.
But seriously, that post on saturday is the funniest thing I have read in a long, long time. Give it a read, and read the comments that I and others left. I think my favorite part was comparing his johnson to the side of beef that Rocky was working over during the tv interview in the movie. Oh my, I have been laughing out loud at inopportune times since yesterday morning just thinking about that one.
You know any dick war with a Flynn is one that you will ultimately lose. Our pants prowess is legend (wait for it) ary. You've heard of Ironman (the superhero, not the race)? We're knows as IronMembers. So if this is really a battle that Glaven wants to fight, I will beat his meat into submission (yes, that's a gay joke). Glaven will become the Glaveness. His adopted son will become his adopted daughter (but he/she is still a cute kid). I gotta side with Teh Bride (as he calls his wife). Give him hell!
I know my mother reads this blog, and she must be incredibly proud right now. I am (fear not) on track with the training plan. hopefully thursday I will finally get into that swim practice. there are many many miles to come this week, so I'll be posting often.
Congratulatios to everyone that got in a race this weekend. My tampa friend Healthy Ashley ran her second half marathon and got in a great time. Diet guru Caitlin ran a 15k and 5k on saturday, then a half marathon on sunday (same race as Ashley). She set 2 pr's and made goal times in all 3 races. How cool! Who else was racing? I only have 3 more weeks until the Assault bike ride. I can't wait. More to come. Go to Glaven's blog and meat punch his comments for me.
