Default Hate Seasons... lol

Not fair... I like when I get time to really adapt to new seasons.

I'm used to having lit up roads (due to the reflection of light on the snow), less traffic, and no cyclists and children playing around. The roads are mine during the winter, now I have to share?!?!

Anyone else have trouble adjusting? Maybe I'm just a grouch.


Others will say, "But the snow is gone! Summer is here, hurray!"

... We all know what we do during the summer, if you're like me, your face looks either like this;


or this;


When people say the above to you.

Got a big brush job tomorrow weather looks good 10c to 12c all weeks.
I figure the job should take three days.

I AGREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Nothing is worse than waking up and having to turn on a lawn mower... It's our second alarm clock to make sure we're actually awake, and it lasts all day.

you could paint your mower fluorescent colors and have a black light shine on it. Then swing around glow sticks as you mow too
