Wednesday: Hili dialogue

May 13, 2015 • 4:53 am

Report: Facebook is back, back is improving slowly, and we are being cheated of Spring. Here is our weather through the weekend:

Screen shot 2015-05-13 at 4.42.32 AMIt’s been cold and rainy, and my squirrels are sick of soggy seeds. It is as if winter is reluctant to loosen its talons. Today I have a recorded phone interview with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor for their Freethought Radio show, which will be broadcast on May 23rd: book stuff. It’s always a pleasure to talk with Dan and Annie Laurie—heads of the hardest-working secular organization around. Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is pulling rank as editor of Listy and is cracking the whip:

Hili: I told you that all articles are to be posted before 7 a.m.
A: What’s the difference?
Hili: The readers are waiting.

In Polish:
Hili: Mówiłam, żeby wszystkie artykuły były publikowane przed siódmą rano.
Ja: A co za różnica?
Hili: Czytelnicy czekają.

  1. That reminds me of the Elizabethan playwright Marston –

    The wanton spring lies dallying with the earth,
    And pours fresh blood on her decayed veins,
    Look how the new sapp’d branches are in child
    With tender infants, how the Sun draws out,
    And shapes their moisture into thousand forms
    Of sprouting buds; all things that show or breathe
    Are now instaur’d saving my wretched breast
    That is eternally congealed with ice
    Of froz’d despair.

    1. Lovely. Congealed is how my blood is since yesterday, and my toes are despairingly froz’d. We’ve got lows of 1C in SW Ontario (eh, plus wind!). But I can’t complain since we’ve already had our summer, with last week’s sweltering temps and humidity.

  2. It has been miserable here all week too and everyone at work, myself included, has a cold. But, this often happens in May. I was thinking how happy I was when it was 5C because after the steady -20C temperature, it felt balmy. The upside is no one is blinded by my white legs as I’ve started wearing tights again.

  3. It’s been in the 80’s F here in NY. But this week will be in the 60’s again. Something tells me the earth’s frozen, white beret has slipped down a bit. Actually, I welcome the cooler weather…for a while at least.

  4. Since when was 67-77 degrees not spring temperatures? May average max is about 21 centigrade, or 70 Fahrenheit. So today is cold. But tomorrow is another day.

  5. We’ve been what seems quite cool here in Arizona, too, and I’m loving every minute of it. Not much longer and it’ll be daily triple digits…and that can wait as long as it wants to!

    It’s about sunset now, still 88°F / 31°C, but overcast and breezy…by bedtime it should cool off enough that I can open up the place and leave it open until about nine tomorrow morning. And the high Friday is only supposed to be 75°F / 24°C, positively chilly! And nothing much above 90°F / 32°C in the ten-day forecast….
