Gotta love our wonderful ND weather. Thank God this is a so called mild winter. I like cold weather. I like snow, but I hate shoveling, and I hate driving on ice. I just like the chilly air, cause I can breathe best, and no damn pollen to make me sneeze my self to death.

Winter storm warning tonight through Sunday afternoon.

TONIGHT Mostly cloudy. Very windy. Lows in the upper 20s. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph becoming northwest 30 to 40 mph after midnight. Gusts up to 60 mph.

SUNDAY Partly cloudy. A 20 percent chance of snow showers in the morning. Blowing snow with visibility less than one quarter mile at times then blowing snow in the afternoon. Very windy. Highs in the mid 20s. Northwest winds 30 to 40 mph with gusts to around 60 mph.

SUNDAY NIGHT Mostly clear. Windy. Lows around 5. Northwest winds 20 to 30 mph decreasing to 10 to 20 mph after midnight.

MONDAY Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 20s.

Don't everybody head north all at once.

Is it just me or are spammers developing a weird (if not unintentional sense of humor. I recieved the following in a mass spam mailing to try and sell me drugs (like a single 35 year old women wants Viagra or Cialis). But see for your self why I had to open it. (shakes head. I realize they just put random words to get past any filters, but sometimes it just works out hilarious. (Anybody who actually buys from these ads must have cotton candy for brains).

Subject: do sundae guts on sleep commute

very hard to sell us some gold chains; he was rather insistent, but I just country, in which many of those troublemakers, who hold to the story that the We got gas near Gary, Indiana, and coke, too. As an added bonus, the car ever existed before. It is a field too easy to romanticize. It is follows my instructions and quickly produces the exact drawing I

On a lighter note, I've been having a long running debate with Warren for some time. When I get a soda, like at a restaurant or something, I like ice in my glass. Many times if I pour one at home and I have ice I will put it in the glass. I hate warm soda. My son on the other hand, views this as some sort of sacrilidge akin to selling one's children to buy maid service. The few times I have forgotten and without thinking put some frozen cubes in his glass, he has reacted like somebody just force fed him 3 day old lutefisk. Trust me on this one-its a Scandinavian food item that can be used for torture purposes. The akvavit-mentioned on the link, that is another story.It is not to bad, not great but not bad. My very first drunk involved a bottle of akvavit my dad brought back from visting relatives in Norway and Sweden. Great drunk - but a helluva hangover. But I digress.Accordin to Warren the ice melts and waters down the soda. In my way of thinking with out it, it goes warm and flat before I can drink it.

So is this a nationally dividing issue, or is my son in the minority. Or am I out to lunch (more so than usual)? Just out of curiousity on an issue that really doesn't mean anything to anyone, but is fun to discuss anyway.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
