Mid-October Chill?

Almost half of October is gone and the mercury dips south. Not only was it unseasonably cold, but it was raining. Temperatures in Connecticut had a hard time making it out of the 40s, and the weathermen are talking about sleet and — if I am getting way ahead of the times — snow. WTF?!!!

I know what you’re thinking: SNOW IN OCTOBER IN CONNECTICUT??!!! But it happened here more than 20 years ago. I thought we were just gonna get rain. Today, it fucking snowed…in October…in Connecticut. This cold, rainy spell is expected to last until Monday night, which gives us reason to set the thermostat to 70, snuggle with a love one, and whip up a nice cup of hot chocolate.

Flu shot, anyone?

Limbaugh Disses Prez on 2016 Olympics

Sorry, Americans, but there will be no olympics coming to Chicago in 2016. As much as it saddens me to say, President Obama went to Copenhagen before the Olympic Committee to campaign for Chicago as the host city of the 2016 Olympics. Chicago lost in the first round, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was awarded the Olympics, making it the first city in South America to host the Olympics…ever.

“You can play a great game and still not win,” he said. But Obama was not out of the woods….yet.Radio host Rush Limbaugh had the audacity, the chutzpah to bash the ‘Bam for failure to bring the Olympics to America.

Are you f**king serious??!!! Doesn’t Rush have an off switch?!

Bottled Up

Since yesterday, a bill proposing the 5-cent-per-bottle surcharge on all bottled water, except for water sold in gallons, went into effect in Connecticut. The popularity of bottled water has gotten so great that most of the empty bottles end up on the ground or in landfills.

It’s only a matter of time before the consumers go back to drinking water from the faucet. The bottle bill was supposed to go in effect on April 1, but the need for industry changes prompted the extension. Granted, it’s going to cost you a nickel more per bottle, but there’s a chance you WILL get that nickel back, right?

Lewis Black has something to say about bottled water…
