      Lawrence, are you bitter about it?

      It kind of sounds like it so to help ease the depression of wind and snow and ice and lack of sunshine, this one is for you.

      Summer is in your heart, not the weather where you live.

        Is HD really a romantic at heart underneath that little red suit with the pointed tail?

    Actually I prefer the winter, Terra. When we get a few days of 40 degrees Celcius in a row, it really knocks me around. In winter I can put the heater on, have some soup, wear warm clothes, etc.....so I am not bitter at all.

    However, when it gets down to -0.7 in the mornings, that is a bit TOOOOO cold for me.

      But in the summer, you can kick the air on or if you prefer to save on the electric bill, you can take all of your clothes off rather than putting more on. Plus, you can go skinny dipping without having to chop a hole through the ice.

      I'll trade you our winters for yours, any time you like. Or our winters for your summers - whichever you want to exchange.

      Actually, now I think about it, on recent years' form it probably wouldn't even be such a bad deal to trade our summers for your winters. :p

      I should have stayed out of this conversation: I'm starting to think I'm living in the wrong place, now ...

        Wooden ass




        Boring

            I guess that Melbourne sun must be beating down on you like an S&M mistress in a massage parlour.

            For a guy who recently boasted he's done 5,000 articles without a single complaint, you sure are one tissue skinned dude.

            This is the OTF, and if you can't take a bit of gentle ribbing then stick to the other forums.

            You're rigid, exact, and far too reminiscent of the British "stiff upper lip" type. I've got it . . . you're a descendant of a brit convict sent to Oz. It's the only explanation.

            How old are you? You've never seen "real" snow. Unbelievable.

            You've wrote 5,000 articles (:rolleyes which means you've earned somewhere in the region of $250,000 (at only A$50 an article), yet have never been outside Australia to encounter snow or ice anywhere. How very strange. And you can't afford decent air conditioning either???

            Less of the familiarity. We've not even been formally introduced, so it's "Mr Devil" to you.

            Shame you've just missed the Queen's honours list but never mind . . Mr Devil will bestow the title of "Sir Laurence the Dubious" upon you. Go forth and prosper oh wooden one.

      Well, we were 93 degrees Fahrenheit today with humidity levels between 70 and 80 percent, so, we get hot too. Starting tomorrow the humidity levels will increase daily along with the temperature by a few degrees each day.

      Do you have dry or humid heat there during the summer?

    Why is it unbelievable. Here in Australia there are lots of places that never have snow.
    Maybe you're not as enlightened as you pretend to be.

    As for not being outside of Australia apart from when I was a teen and when I first arrived from England as a 3 year old, what's wrong with that? I don't really like to travel.

    As to what I earn...and what I spend money on, that is my business...and I rent so the landlord uses evaporative cooling.

    I completely don't understand what you mean by "wooden" in your context either.
    I could almost guarantee that I have had more humour in my life than you, especially in my earlier years. Sadly health has prevented me from doing some things which is why I write instead.

    As for being a tissue-skinned dude...if you only knew the truth you would not say that.

    I am not going to waste my time replying to more of your jibes when they clearly come from someone without any care as to how their words affect others.

      None of your posts come across with any humour, wit, or depth. You're staid to the extreme and akin to a greyhound with a wooden leg, in the OTF. Mirror. Look. Analyse. Further defensive manoeuvres won't do you any justice either. An attempt at charientism or subtle humour - however feeble - can only enhance your poor rep.

      And health issues are no excuse for attitude, woody.

    Laurence, I was born and raised in SW Ohio.
    Believe me, I've seen more than my share of freezing cold and snow.
    So, last September I moved to Panama City Beach Florida.
    We have about 3 months of Autumn like weather then right back into Spring and Summer.
    Sorry 'bout your luck.
    I LOVE SUMMER!

    Oh, and we can take our clothes off and go skinny-dipping damn near
    every day.:p

    The only things I know of Florida is from TV shows but it does look like a nice place to live.
    The US is one place I would love to visit and maybe one day I will. I have a long involvement with all aspects of theatre and would love to check out Broadway and see shows there, among other things.
    I am glad you have found a place you can call home in a climate you really enjoy.

          Okay, since we have slowed down a bit, I'll post my favorite. It combines being self employed with the summertime I love so much, except I'm not a band member, I'm a writer and recording artist.

          It's this part!

          People see you having fun
          Just a-lying in the sun
          Tell them that you like it this way!
          Anyway...
