Yes, Yes, I Know.

Lazy Blogger.

Pfffttt, as my dear friend Janie would say.

I was going to do a horoscope thingee today, based on those bogus horoscopes that were all over the place this week. It would be like an Afterschool Special, or a 'Today, on a very special episode of Blossom'. Like that. Only I couldn't find the energy to get all Dawn, Portrait of a Teenage Runaway on you, nor find the episode where Blossom gets her first kiss or first period or something. January is a crazy month for carpeople - yes, I think of that all as one word.

Deeeeetroit was fun, but always tiring. Lots of noise, lots of strong coffee, lots of rich food, lots of walking. Did I mention the noise? I'm gearing up (literally) for a boot to James Bay next weekend. Look on a map - 1600 km straight north. I was told it was the same distance as Miami. Yes, I asked the obvious question.

But what would January be if Lorraine wasn't on a ice floe somewhere, clad in the world's most unattractive thermal underwear? We shall be driving a Prius and a Porsche Cayenne. Yes, that sound you hear already is me whining for more wheel time in the Porsche. I've been told to pack for the possibility that we might get stuck and possibly have to spend the night in the vehicles, stranded. What they don't understand is that with me and 3 guys, I shall be taking the Porsche single room while they can warm each other in the Prius.

Right now I'm looking out the window at snow, snow and more snow. It's quite lovely. And I have a very contented JoJo curled up behind my back snoozing away, making for a quite efficient feline heating pad.

Maybe I can bring her to James Bay.

James Bay in January.
Glam job you got there.

What did you do with the BMW?

I specifically asked for a VW.

It's quite nice in Florida right now, 1,600km due south of your present position.

Did ya know there are people in this world who pronounce Detroit with three syllables and Toronto with one? As in Dee-Troy-Yit and Tra.... Most of them live in Winser.

Have a nice, safe trip north.

Hey that was quite the glam shot of you in the Star yesterday. Those new boots must have had the locals drooling on the linoleum.

I would suggest leaving them behind on the next trip. The bikers will be curled up in their igloos.

Electric socks? Sounds kind of dangerous when you're trekking through snow. Short circuit and all that, you could get a serious case of bacon foot there.
