In Like an Adder


All in the wild March-morning I heard the angels call;
It was when the moon was setting, and the dark was over all;

The trees began to whisper, and the wind began to roll,

And in the wild March-morning I heard them call my soul.


And my snow shovel.

Just yesterday afternoon, I was talking to a gal who'd recently moved here from NYC with her boyfriend. As we were discussing the merits of Manhattan versus Albuquerque's Northeast Heights, we kept glancing above us, watching an ominous blanket of grey roll in from the northwest, eating azure as it crept its away across the skies.

"The weather's tricky here, isn't it?" the gal asked me.

Yes, it is.

Did you take those? If so, take some more for an upcoming MM. Very nice.

When evaluating the relative merits of places, I always consult Jessica Alba myself. She's like, you know, like, smart and stuff.

Troll: Ja, they're my photos. Still trying to figure out the D80. And so the latest on the Alba is that she backtracked and said, "Oh, I was talking about Alamogordo." Riggggght.

Wicked: Dang, you educamators have all the luck.

kiki: Cool! I need to do something else with myself at the moment.

I look at that snow and all I want to do is rip my clothes right off and leap into the nearest snow bank. It is frighteningly hot here at the moment hence that outrageous statement above. Some sort of record for March....longest heat wave in 70 years....yadda yadda yadda. I hate it.


Beautiful pics Moi. Looks like something straight off a Christmas card.

Meghan: Blogger has been crapping out on me all week. Sorry 'bout that.

Gypsy: Sorry to hear you're getting all that hot weather. That happens here, too. We're a cornucopia of All Four Seasons! Hope you cool off soon . . .
