Where DO we come up with these sayings? All I know is, I grew up hearing how the temperatures outside could readily be compared to the lack of "bun" heat of a well digger...unfortunately, I don't believe I've ever even KNOWN a well digger to discuss lack of thermal control in the hiny area, so this may be a moot point!
But WHATEVER! It really is becoming quite cold out here in Seattle and we are expecting the very unusual rain mixed with snow in the higher elevations...thus, making it FEEL "colder than a well digger's arse" outside! I've been laying around in fleece because I'm far too cheap to run millions of revolutions on my electric meter to stay warm...I imagine it is probably a bit LESS chilly to me than the general public anyway as I am on day 3 of PREDNISONE ROID RAGE...steroids always heat up my core temperature and make me look alcoholic in the face with a crimson blush. Frankly, I can't think of a better time to endure this side effect than right now!
I am developing cabin fever...thoughts of "The Shining" (Jack Nicholas movie) and "REDRUM" are brewing in the back of my noggin...I'm still not able to drive (or at least SHOULDN'T drive) and quite clumsy with the cane and vertigo. I've eaten nearly everything NOT nailed down in my kitchen, but I have tried to chew the nails out of the things that ARE secured! And, as you can see by the timing of this post, it IS 3:00AM PST...much like the energizer bunny, I'm "still going". This is even after some mega dosed psychiatric medications!
I DO think I will have to retire to the sanctuary of my bedroom shortly, however...if for nothing else, but the heat! Warm and inviting covers do sound like Mecca to me right now. Maybe tomorrow I will maintain just a bit more focus and a bit less manic energy and actually have something to write about besides sayings from my childhood or the weather...please don't hold your breath though...LOL
