No Ladies Dancing [Jan. 2nd, 2018|09:22 pm]
Today was not quite as warm as predicted, so I'm going to be skeptical of the forecast for tomorrow, which says it will be warmer than today was. I'll believe the part that says it's going to be mostly cloudy, but not the part that says the high is going to be 63 degrees. I'm guessing it will get down into the fifties, and not get back up into the sixties for quite some time. Even that is something that would barely pass for winter in these parts in a normal year, though it's still something that will boost my utility bill above last month's.

Meanwhile, it looks like the east coast is going to get socked with a nasty winter storm, and after it passes all the air in the arctic is going to get sucked into the whole region east of the rockies and freeze everybody's arses off. Yikes. If I should forget myself over the next week or so and complain about how cold I am, or if I gloat over how comparatively mild it is here, while your arse is being frozen off, please don't hesitate to tell me I'm being a total dick.

I've been sort of dopey and unfocused again today, but I did remember that trash day is tomorrow (one day late thanks to the holiday) and I got the wheelie bins dealt with. Now if I can remember tomorrow that it is Wednesday and I can look at the new supermarket ads, I'll be doing pretty well. The only thing left to do tonight is fox something to eat. I guess it will be ramen with vegetables and mushrooms.

Rain possible late tomorrow night.

Haha I just wrote in my entry about how mild the weather is here compared to back there.

After last fire season maybe we deserve to indulge in a little bit of compensatory boasting about the mild weather— but not so much that we tempt fate. There could be floods ahead, and even if no floods come, eventually the return of drought is inevitable. And earthquakes. And more fires.

That "winter hurricane" business is alarming. Then there are articles saying "calm down, there's no winter hurricane." I can watch from out here, though, and feel smug. Till Full Rip 9.0 hits, and then my smugness will fall away. ;)

We may've discussed ramen already, but when I moved here, my son met me at a local Hawaiian ramen restaurant. I hadn't even realized, till then, that ramen was something one eats freshly made. Guess the West Coast gets more actual Pacific-type foods. I wasn't nuts about the ramen, but the garlic rice was to die for.

I remember when the Asian stores in our neighborhood began selling packaged dry ramen back in the 1970s. A French woman who lived on our block recommended it to my mom, and then I tried it. Ten cents a package, and with a few vegetables and maybe a bit of leftover meat you had an entire meal! It's no wonder the stuff became so popular so fast.
