Quit being miserable and start complaining!

With all this snow, California's balmy 65 degree Februarys are looking pretty good.

I have found that one of the least popular topics here on the East Coast is, well, hatred of the East Coast! Not that there aren't many things to love about the East Coast, but when you're transplanted from California and it snows, and you can't go anywhere without bundling up and shoveling out your driveway (and forget about running!), well, California just looks pretty darned good. But for a variety of reasons, East Coasters don't take kindly to Californians kvetching about the East Coast. (Not that I blame them; no one likes to hear their geographical and cultural surroundings put down, so I try to avoid doing that and besides, why whine and complain when you can just leave?)

Of course, as a sounding board I do have Puff, who was born and grew up in California. Right now I think he's wondering whether his master is in full possession of his mental faculties. But he's being patient.


Misery loves company -- and Puff and I are both pretty good at commiseration.

Good and faithful dog Puff is. I, too, miss sunny California (though I don't miss the Hayward Fault or the San Andreas Fault). We've been having some nice weather up here, though. We're in the middle of February, but we had a string of bright, sunny days here. Spring is staring to spring. I see pink blossoms out there.

Now, what's next in Up With Beauty? I really need to get to work on my blogroll, for one thing. I also think I should do an overview of all these spectrums. After that, maybe post a series I wrote a few years ago on tie-ins between various 2-dimensional spectra. I also want to write about the spectrums my characters use. Spectrums, spectrums, spectrums, spectrums....

I'm also thinking of a glossary of some idiosyncratic terms I use or have used in my blog.
