Today, snow fell on our little hamlet for
approximately the second time this winter -- nothing stuck, but it was still
reassuring to have some proof that the earth hadn't broken orbit and begun
a long descent into the sun. Even so, proponents of global warming theories
would do well to make their cases while the mild weather holds.
They say that March goes out like an animal
inversely equivalent to the animal to which it can be compared when coming
in, but do they have any folksy sayings that cover the whole of the winter
season? I'd hate to think that we're gearing up for an all-out blizzard just
before we escape the gray mud season, but if we are, it'd be good to know.
For my part, I'd be happy to get a move on Spring just as soon as possible
-- winter weather overstays its welcome the week after New Year's, for me.
To emphasize this point, after four full years of playing the "Animal Crossing"
series, I've never been able to pass through the snowy months, in-game, in
real time. Even now, my "Wild World" game clock is set to early April.
I've mentioned this before, but I sure to enjoy
the Animal Crossing series -- can't wait to see what they come up with for
the Wii iteration. I do, however, hope that they make considerably more-sweeping
new features than they did for "Wild World" for the DS. That one's easier
to burn out on than the GC version, and it's not just because they didn't
include the NES games... though that sure didn't help.
So, is this the more-interesting entry I promised,
yesterday? Well, I'm afraid so, sorry. I'll work on that. In the meanwhile,
enjoy the newest comic strip, in full color!
Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention this earlier,
but I totally misspelled the word 'scepter' in Monday's comic, and also totally
did not fix it. Woops!
