Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

I know it's not Wednesday yet, but WTF's with this freakin' cold?!?!? Well, actually it's the freakin' wind that's got me ticked off. Wouldn't be so bad without the wind. And yes, I do realize that most people would consider the current NYC temperature of 19 degrees bad, but compared to Jim's current temperature of 8 degrees, I don't think it's really not so bad, eh? And I should be thanking my lucky stars that I don't have to deal with any snow, especially the blowing snow goin' on up north. Eeeyikes!

So, I'm a little cranky here. Wanna know why? (Just play along with the agitated lady and say "yes".)

  • I've got classes tonight. Two paralegal classes. From 6:10 to 10:20. PM.

  • I'm gonna have to schlep through the cold wind from the bus stop to get to the first class. Then half-way through the first class we have to schlep over to the library, which will be either too hot or too cold (flip a coin). Again, through the cold wind. Then another schlep through the cold back to the classroom for the second class. Then a huge schlep through the cold after class back to the bus stop and then either a short or long wait for the bus. Then a schlep from the bus to the train station (oh, please let me make the train!), and if I miss the train, a half hour wait for the next one. And if I'm lucky, I'll be home by midnight.

  • And despite the fact that I am a knitter, I'm shockingly lacking in knitted woolly items to keep me warm tonight!!! Seriously, WTF was I thinking this morning!!!!!
Please don't misunderstand--I'm not complaining about the paralegal classes, which really are a good thing. Seriously. They are good, even if right now it makes for one long Tuesday. But, the cold is just sucking the life out of me. It's one of those days where I'd normally take advantage of having a subway station that goes directly into my office building, shielding me from the elements, so that I wouldn't have to go outside until I reached Long Island. But no, instead I'll be repeatedly thrown to the lions winds tonight. Sigh...

Unfortunately, I have no choice but to do something I swore I wouldn't do.

Wear my mismatched red socks before the third one is done.

What can I say--I need wool for my tootsies.

Oh, and another thing--what's with the Southern VT Weather Pixie in the side bar? Doesn't she own a coat ??? WTF?????

Love the socks even though they do not match YET. How's the course going? Miss seeing you. Thurs. nites just aren't the same.

I agree with you about the wind. It has been awful! At least today we have the sun out and very little wind. But I've had enough with the cold.
I'm so sorry to hear of your having to stand out in the cold. Yes you should be wearing your wool socks. Or like I did yesterday wear 2 pairs at once!
Knit faster, you need more wooley stuff.

Gorgeous colorway! I hear you on the cold. I think it's what they describe as "bitter cold" up here.

I couldn't have existed in my past practice without my paralegals but they all ended up leaving & going to law school. Seems the logical next step since they do much of the work anyway. Good luck with your classes!
