Pink Sucks

I know, I’m offending untold numbers of breast cancer survivors, 8-year-old girls and gay triangles, and truth be told, I don’t always hate pink. But when it’s the pink of a weather map, then that is not a good pink. Observe:

We’re in the pink right now, have been for a few hours, will likely remain here for a bit more. It doesn’t even look pretty from inside my nice warm house, because it’s all white from the snow earlier but now it’s warm and raining hard and a bit foggy and just blech.

My poor obsessive-compulsive neighbor, the one who snowblows his driveway hourly and then goes on to snowblow his yard, can’t even keep up with this meteorological vomit. He was out earlier, flinging aside any snowflake that dared desecrate his property, and I could watch the arc from his big bad snow removal machine get heavy and sad and limp and unmanly, until finally he had to admit defeat. If the cord was long enough, you know he’d be out there with his Shopvac right now.

So I’m on-call from home, hoping very much that everyone decides to keep it together for a few more hours because I just don’t wanna. Plus last night I was too sleepy to work on the sweater or scarf I have in progress, so I started a hat/scarf set for Willem… a plain old watch cap, ribbed for his pleasure, and a scarf. But not just any scarf, not for my math-geek beloved. No, he’s getting a scarf with alternating stripes… in the Fibonacci sequence. I have plenty, then, to keep me occupied right here.


  1. Awwwww honey, that sucks. You’re welcome to come hang out down here. It’s been in the 70’s & 80’s all week & we’re about to get the pool ready for summer.

  2. We were in the pink about a week and a half ago. We had about 15 hours of pink!! The best part was the next morning when the sun came out. Everything sparkled! Amazingly beautiful.

  3. Wow. A scarf with stripes in the fibonacci sequence. That, Kate, is true love. You rock.

  4. I’m on my way over, and I’m bringing irish creme for the coffee.

    Oh just a second – it’s warmer here right now. Near the snow topped mountains. In CANADA. Maybe you should come *here*.

    I’m so funny. (nervous laughter)

  5. Everywhere on EARTH has nicer weather than we do right now. Especially Canada. Because, why not?

    But, sure, gh, I’ll head on over. I’ll have to skip the coffee and go straight for the Irish Creme though… caffeine makes me jittery. I have a fabulous recipe for this milkshake type thing with Bailey’s, Kahlua, amaretto, vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup….

  6. I will not mention our weather. I will just hope yours has gotten much better and that you will share with me this milkshake type recipe. Yum!
