sixth coldest month
Friday, April 2 2004
I always forget how much I hate April until it comes. It can be wonderful, but it can also be a terrible disappointment, particularly in this climate. Today, for example, could have easily passed for a day in mid-February. The enthusiasm one has for the coming warm weather needs to be tempered by a better sense of the relative warmth of the months. If you accept that the coldest weather of the year occurs at around January 20th, it's fairly easy to construct of a list of the months from coldest to warmest just by going back and forth on either side of the circular calendar:
See, April is in the colder half of the year. But you already knew that, right?
Despite the cold and the drear, April may not have been my problem nearly as much as my self-imposed abstinenance from caffeine. Perhaps at one time I could have gotten by without stimulants to maintain the forward motion of the gearbox in my mind. No longer. The best I can hope for on caffeine-free days is a housecall. On today's housecall, though, I was up to my old scatterbrained ways, reading articles on multiple sites simultaneously. This wasn't really my fault, though. The business of my housecall had me doing domain maintenance at NetworkSolutions.com, possibly the slowest website on the planet.
