Getting Warmer

I'm really glad it's getting warmer, but it does remind me of what I do hate about the summer in the South of France.

By the end of June/early July, it will be so hot that if I don't want to give myself heat stroke I'll have to wear shorts.

This sucks, because, really, unless you are on the beach, an adult male should never wear shorts. It's fine until you are about 25. After that it either makes you look like you are still trying to be a lad or else like you are a dude from Iowa on vacation in Hawaii.

Adult men should wear long pants, button down shirts and jackets. Or, if you are in a band, blue jeans, a black T-shirt and a black leather jacket.

It sucks that I won't be able to wear a jacket. For a dude, a jacket is like a purse for a babe. It's where I carry my keys, wallet, cigarettes, etc.... and there is no way to carry that shit in a pair of shorts without making it look like you have elephantiasis of the balls.

Someone needs to design long pants, button down shirts and jackets that are comfortable to wear when it's 100 degrees out.

Poll

Am I the only person who got the old television show joke/reference with the name of Jack's dad?

That is something I liked and got a huge laugh out of.

Oh!

And now I see the makers of Lost have issued a press release saying you'll be able to get the answers to all your questions about the island - if you buy the DVD set in August.

"Oh, hey - we didn't provide you with what every single person watching this show wanted, but if you give us $50 in a few months we will!"

It's like being in a restaurant and saying "hey, this isn't what I ordered" and them being like "well, if you give us an extra $50 we'll give you what you ordered the next time you dine here!"
