Good Morning from North Dakota Part -33 with windchill

By Glenn 

Good morning. This article has been posted at 7:00am and if you're reading this in North Dakota, you're probably dead. Today, the forecasted high is -5. Right now the temperature is probably -35 with windchill. I say probably because once it goes below -30 all the thermometers break and the mercury spills out, giving everyone Autism.

Today's Weather

I already covered this. It's actually cold everywhere - even in Florida! Thankfully the race for Senate between Marco Rubio and Charlie Crist is hot enough to keep the citrus crop alive...for now.


Today's Sue Email
Hi Glenn,
Your father has found a new way to spend his time....Ebay.....I showed him some dishes my mother gave me when we got married,
and that if he ever saw them on the internet, to tell me......well, he went right to work, found them for sale on Ebay, and the rest, people say
is history......when all the dust settles, I will have a service for twelve......( I had 8 already......anyway, he's had fun and I'm happy with the
results........).......I had my yearly doctor's visit yesterday.....everything went well.......at least I think so.....will get my test results next week, I think.............your father had his eye exam today........we thought he might have to have a cataract taken care of, but the doctor said everything's
fine, and nothing has to be done yet.....
We went to see the Morgan movie this afternoon......even though you said it got one star, we liked it........

And yes, she's referring to the "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" film.


Today's Video


Someone sent this to me before Christmas and I'm not sure why I like it so much. This is a boy-girl band that does a lot of covers on Youtube, but also write their own music. I don't do either of those things and that's why that guy and his awesome beard are with her and on the internet while I'm just on the internet. Hopefully they have a google alert on themselves and will come here to curse at me for saying these relatively vague things about them. Their name is Pomplamoose.


Today's Prediction
People will be upset I talked about North Dakota, the weather and cutesy internet videos. Don't get too upset though - I have an article coming out later today in honor of OYIT Anniversary Week that should blow your sock off! And if it doesn't do that, I'll blow a hole in the back of my fucking head by falling victim to Jigsaw's shotgun trap in one of the Saw movies. My other prediction is that Did You Hear About the Morgans? wins Best Picture and my mother presents the award.

  3. Hilarious. Usually your GM posts are all about Herbert Hoover and the CIA's involvement in Watergate and the references go over my head. So I'm glad that this post is mostly about Saw IV, Sue and how cold it is outside. These are three things I can relate to.

  5. Sue's email was gibberish to me, so I cut out all the parts I understood and put them together here:

    "...........................( ..............)................................................................"
