If I could just take a moment of your time, I would like to bounce something off you. Like a hammer, maybe.

That's why I left Minnesota... Weather so frustrating sometimes, it makes you feel like you're being robbed of the good seasons. But don't worry, I won't taunt you by telling you where I moved or how awesome the weather is here.

Bitter, much? I don't mind if people ask the weatherperson on the news to say- "do you have any good news? When will it warm up"? Minnesotans are eternal optimists... though I agree with this guy and have been grumbling for a long time. Long winter, long WET spring. Yet the winter before last was really mild- it was often 50 degrees! Not sure what else we can do, though... I've lived in cities on both coasts, but I'm a Minnesota girl. There are so much pluses to the Twin Cities that other cities (even good cities, with nice weather) can't compare!

...it’s bad enough when they started doing that shake-hands-with-people-in-the-pew thing in church... You are my hero! May I quote you on this the next time I get the stink-eye because I prefer to have my religious experience in a quiet, reflective and solemn manner, rather than bounding about the sanctuary in a show of who's-the-most-Christian?
