@303 LavaGirl: Snakes, too?! Eeee! I forgot all about them. Are the snakes as poisonous as the spiders? Hope your heat wave doesn't get too unbearable. Cold drinks out on your verandah? Hit the pool?

@301 LavaGirl: Oh yeah--it's summer where you are. At least you've got the beaches there.
Australia's got, what?--tiger sharks, mud sharks, bull sharks AND Great Whites? Yikes! And from what I hear pretty mean jellyfish, spiders, and crocs, too. But you know what to look for.
I dunno--you might hate the nasty, ripping below freezing Arctic winds we've been getting in November. The mountain pass highway is officially closed for winter; avalanche risk is too high.
Hopefully we don't have a bad winter of slides and flooding.

Please forgive me, venn, Dan, and everybody. After some really bad news in my life about personal finances, employment status, and what my taxes for 2015 are projected to look like, I desperately needed a good laugh.

@292, re @275, vennominon: Can't you just see Wanda informing Bob that 'You can't get away, 'cause I GOT you.'--and grabbing him right back? That would have been some Showcase Showdown.

@289, to BiDanFan: Crap. Sorry about the misspelling--I meant"financial", not fincial.

@275 vennominon: Heaven help me--I just had a rather delightfully wicked TPiR scenario: We're back in the 1970's; the lecherous Bob Barker is hosting TPiR, and Johnny Olsen calls out for [actor / comedian Jamie Foxx, in his recurring In Living Color role as Wanda]..."Come on DOWN! You're the next contestant on The Price is Right!" Bob turns oatmeal pale, while a wrongfully fired Holly quips, "Kiss THAT, Bob!"
Wanda could have rocked his world.

@272 BiDanFan: Thanks. I will need all the help I can get. I have an appointment next week with someone locally who can hopefully turn my fincial situation around for the better. Meantime, I'm collaborating with an established jazz musician on a Finale project working at home, and seeking additional employment as a TA in the Music Department. I don't have a MMA, or teaching certification, but I don't see why I couldn't be an aide or librarian's assistant with my BA of Music. Exploring my options........stay tuned.

@2: "Spotty snow" forecasts scare me, too. Fog + black ice = Kiss of Death.
Add to it all the newly transplanted dumbfucks who moved here en masse who are totally clueless as how to safely drive in PNW weather conditions, and it's Hell on Earth.
@4 Thank you, Andrew. I couldn't have summed up the GOP's Evil Empire better myself.
The very thought of how many low income and blue collar voters and taxpayers in the U.S. who believe---BELIEVE!---that Donald Trump should be our next President mortifies me.

@264 Still Thinking: You're most warmly welcome.
@265 CMDwannabe: Thanks. It's good to know we're on a similar page---I so often feel I don't understand men at all.

Another Griz Update: At my blessedly common sensed, equally concerned brother's and two local friends' advising me, I am going forth to seek a local financial adviser and transfer what I still have closer to home.
Everyone please, please, wish me luck on finding sustainable employment (I understand the local community college needs help in the music dept, so I'm checking that out, too). Alcoa is laying off 400 employees, so the job market is only going to get worse where I live. And we're supposed to get another wretched Arctic storm over the next few days--yuck!
