Seattle’s Weather IQ: 2

It’s a winter fucking wonderland out there. Whee.

I’m thinking tropically: drinks accompanied by umbrellas, and delivered in coconuts by smooth brown men with bright white smiles; bare feet, warm sand; bemoaning the state of your sandy ass crack; food cooked in banana leaves, charred on the outside, tender and sweet on the inside; wrapping your legs around someone’s waist in a clear, turquoise ocean, and floating away; wearing a strapless dress under the stars; getting lightly sunburned on your nose; a salty-sweet night breeze; hibiscus flowers in your hair; white linens; reading a book from cover to cover in one afternoon; live island music; meeting new people who are as relaxed as you; sleeping with the windows open; losing your watch, and not really caring; using the internet or cell phone only to “check in” with the kids, or the parents; urinary tract infections from all the sex you’re having; feeling like the best, most refreshed version of yourself; and sleep, glorious sleep. There’s nothing more depressing than wrapping yourself in these images and then looking out the window in Seattle – but still! Wrapwrapwrapwrap. Mmmm, denial.

Luckily, it’s sunny right now – I’m hoping everything melts off by this afternoon, and that Winter takes a big hint and properly fucks right off. I’m done with this snow shit. I was up by 4:45am for the neighborhood blog, tweeting road conditions, bus re-routing, school closures, monitoring the 911 log, gleaning information from other community websites, and taking photos of the neighborhood – ALL BECAUSE OF YOU, SNOW. I’m ready for a 12-hour nap, but the show must go on. My mantra today: MELT! MELT! MELT! MELT!

  6. Um, I don’t think so. If I could control the weather, it would be sunny all year ’round. Although crisp in the fall, and it would snow for two days over Christmas. AFTER I make it to my parents’ house.
