I was just looking at my sitemeter to see who has stopped by my blog. I'm rather addicted to doing that..I have no idea why. But I digress, the latest visitor was from Floyds Knobs, IN. Have you ever heard of that place? Why, according to the Google Map, it's just down the pike from Cementville. It just strikes me funny. Perhaps because I have been over at Matt's Blog and my funny bone has been tickled to no end this morning already. So Floyds Knobs just made me giggle.
In other news, its COLD here in sunny South Florida. A couple of times a year, the jet streams dips below Orlando and we actually get a chill in the air. It was 44 outside this morning when I woke up and the temp in the house was 68. We immediately banged the heat up to like 74. We don't do "cold". Apparently neither do my fellow South Floridians. As I was coming out of the store earlier a woman looked at me in my cotton sweater and said "aren't you COLD????????????" as if I was wearing a tank top and shorts. Heck I even have socks on today. I don't do socks. She was decked out in a non-matching ensemble of a winter fleece coat, a ginormus cable knit hat, complete with pom pom on top and a scarf...it was 57 degrees outside....she said she was FREEZING!
Here's how it works. People pull out whatever vintage sweater or coat they owned when they moved to South Florida..so...if you moved here in 1972, you pull out that outerwear from that year (or earlier). It doesn't matter if it looks good OR fits properly. They wear it. Now of course I don't fit into this category. I must be fashionable. I look at boots and sweaters every fall even though its 95 degrees here....and I usually buy some..just so I can wear them for an hour on a "cold" February morning and look somewhat trendy.
So that being said..I'm off to heat up some soup...IT'S COLD IN HERE!!
