ONT: Advent Of Winter Fatness

Well, we in the New England have had an abrupt end to an unbelievably long run of great weather. Our Spring actually started in Spring for a change, our Summer was one of the most weather-perfect in long years of memory, and this Autumn was superb leaf-peeping for weeks.

But just a few days ago we had our first Nor'easter. Something funny happens when the temperature dips and the mornings get clear and crisp. And then this funny thing intensifies when the first snows arrive.

What happens is, all the fat cells in our bodies send urgent messages of 'Want' to the Blubber Cortex of the brain. The Blubber Cortex then activates the Cake Gland, which is located in your elbow, and is responsible for lubricating and strengthening all the joints that help you bring a fork to your mouth.

And food just looks really good, all the time.

In order to get my mind off food, I took a bunch of dramatic weather-photos of puffy clouds today. Here's one.

Note the seagull off in the distance, and the low grey sky.

More cloud pictures below the fold.

Another ocean picture. I like the way the setting sun is reflected in the grits water.

Here's some especially fluffy, peaceful clouds. Make me think of Sunday mornings. And huge, roomy pants.

I like it when clouds go on the grill and get kind of a crusty bark on the outside, you know, where the fat turns to delicious candy? But the inside is still medium-rare? Yeah. Good clouds. This one reminded me of that.

Aaaaand. This is just a picture of pancakes and sausages with syrup. No idea how this one got mixed up in the series.

This concludes your awful substitute for an Ace Of Spades HQ Overnight Thread. Thank you for your patronage.

If you have any questions about the subjects you have seen here tonight, please feel free to inquire at your local public library, just for laughs. If you have complaints and psychiatric problems, send a page of your deranged gibberish to: Biggest Idiot Ever Conceived, 990 Prospect Avenue, Hartford, CT 06105.


So. What are you guys doing this weekend?
