Rain, rain, go away

You know, I'm not one to generally complain about the weather. And certainly I can recognize the benefits of the rain for keeping the pollen down, which is making my allergy problem of yesterday significantly less important. I love a good thunderstorm, and blizzards too.

No matter how much I try though, I can't like when it's pissing down rain, and cold. Warm and pissing down rain is fine, but 50 degrees and spitting rain in May just sucks.

I thought the *April* showers were supposed to bring the May flowers? (And what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims!)

High levels of weather variability are also somewhat suck.

That's my thoughts for the day. (Yeah, I'm pretty braindead.)

(The response, from GargantuanCoho? "Zombies attack! They're attacking from everywhere! You only get one weapon! What do you chose?" I think the right answer to that is "The Automatic Shotgun", right? Unless there's a holy-water spray bottle, in which case I might have to go that route.)

(no subject)

I lied, there is one other thing on my mind. This morning, on my way to dropping off the kids, I heard that the UN is planning to 'punish' North Korea for their recent nuclear tests and so on. On hearing this, all I could really think of was the Onion video: "Ambassador Stages Coup at UN, Issues List of Non-Binding Resolutions".

There's always the chance that Mtambi might abandon his post... if he finds a more powerful position like being the mayor of a small town, or being the coach of a little league team.

Looking at the actual state of affairs, this doesn't seem too far from the truth:
Now, council members are preparing to draw up yet another resolution, but divisions in the council could prevent swift action. ... As the US, China, Russia have equal veto power in the council, agreement on the details of a resolution, such as whether or not to include more sanctions, could take some time.

What is the UN good for again? I've lost track...
