It's snowing and melting still...but cold enough for my sweaters and new hat! No driving at night, too much black ice!

Alix, what is the fahrenheit equivalent of that?

-12c = 10f, -20c = -5f

C-O-L-D!

It just got really windy here, dropped the temp. Luckily most of the water has evaporated from the streets. I love snow, but hate black ice! Or snow on top of ice!

It's been so nice, a bit cooler, still have the windows open, but not all the way all the time.

Chilly this morning so I dressed in l/s shirt, sweat pants, plus flannel shirt. Had to switch to s/s shirt and shorts by the time I home from shopping. Loving it.

lol, we call them granola heads, or hair bags if they look like they're in a band.

i had a big chuckle the other night when the nightclub down the block from my building in the city let out and a few hundred kids, all dressed in goth style, poured out and started walking past where i was parked.

all i could think of, tongue planted firmly in cheek was "ooooh, i'm sooo deep and dark and mysterious. i'm so unique, no one understands me or can sound the fathoms of my black soul...".

lol. and then they call their mom to come pick them up.

now, not so goth, in fact exactly the opposite, this thread reminded me of simon and garfunkel.

That's one Simon & Garfunkel I had never heard. How suitable. Thanks, Bucky.

Shrek and I hadn't heard the S&G, Thanks!

Yeah, our Goths are a lot like yours. Many of them are also into LARPing, they act weird when I can tell if they are in a game. How does "Grandma type" know?

That would probably have been me, if there had been goths when I was in high school. I doubt it would be no more embarrassing to look back on that than looking back on my own youthful follies.
