This may be a stupid question, but why did that make you giggle?
I feel like I am missing a pun or innuendo somewhere.

If you search for that character name (not on Google, since they now seem to be enforcing safesearch), the top results will be the same thing I was thinking, I expect.

It's also the name of a poisonous plant: nightshade (which is quite common as a spell ingredient). And it means "beatiful woman" in Italian. Not that strange as a name for a witch. You've just got a dirty mind.

(Mathilda Bagshot in Harry Potter is called Belladonna in the Dutch translation)

The temperature yesterday capped out at around 54 F and it felt more or less accurate.

Today the temperature is 0 F and it feels like -21.

For y'all with the sensible scale, that was 12 yesterday and it feeling like 12... and -17 now with it feeling like it's -29.

Woo! Weather! I had to use a damn hairdryer to get in to my garage this morning, because the lock froze. Woo!

It was in the single digits or teens all weekend, and snowed about a foot late last week.

Today it feels like it's in the 50s, and all the snow mounds are outgassing.

It's Kentucky.

That's... not actually that unusual here. The shelters all have white flags out..... that's the only real unusual bit I know, and that's not really that unusual in winter anyway.

Honestly, the only unusual bit is that it's 0 in January and not.. like, May or something.

I really have no concept of what a temperature much below -15C would feel like. I think last year we had record lows here and hit something around -16C, but there was a lot of wind, so I'm going to guess it felt a lot lower.

Hmm. Which reminds me. I need to go skiing more.

I wanted to know.
I was flying through Chicago, before 9/11.

Yes. There was a before.
The temp outside was -40 F.

The engineering staff let me out a door.
They waited for me.

The door was sheltered from the wind.
I was wearing a long dress, no coat.

It was not bad for a long time.
Five minutes, maybe.

Then all of a sudden, the cold started to penetrate my clothing.
"Fuck! Let me in!"

Your nose hairs freeze.

Your nose feels sticky. Like of you rubbed it, the nostrils would stick together.

The air hurts to breath in too quickly.

After a few minutes, your hands physically hurt if uncovered.

And if your nose runs, it freezes on your upper lip. If you have a mustache, you are often unaware this is happening.

That sounds unpleasant. None of that for me, please. The closest I've ever had to that was when I used to shower in the morning then walk down the hill for 5-10 minutes to work, and in the middle of winter my still-slightly-damp hair would go stiff as it froze, then thaw out again in a few seconds once I arrived. Obviously it wasn't too ridiculously cold, though, because I was still walking for 5-10 minutes without a hat or any face covering, with no ill effects.

As schoolkids, we were obsessed with the <<location>> Strike games; Desert Strike, Jungle Strike, Urban Strike. This being 1994, we wondered what potential sequels would be called. One chap, called Griggybear, announced that the only logical name would be Sea Strike, as that's the only terrain we could think of at the time that wasn't desert, jungle, or urban. I remember not being able to counter with any argument, as my ten-year-old brain simply thought 'sea strike? that's a stupid name'. Imagine my surprise when EA when released Soviet Strike two years later. That's not a type of terrain, I thought, and never actually played the game.

Was it any good?

Here in the Netherlands it's 12 on the sensible scale, and even 14 yesterday. I could travel 30 minutes by bike without gloves. In december. 0-5 would be more normal for this time of the year, and -10 wouldn't be all too surprising either.

Desert Strike. I loved that shit. Flying round, firing little missiles off, picking up men, dropping them at the ship back in the sea. Ahhh.. childhood.

I'm sure there was a Desert Strike 2 as well.

no - though folks look at you funny if you wear it into a store and don't take it off fairly quickly.

and the freezing your eyes shut thing - that can happen, but not usually. its more that it hurts when you open your eyes at the blisteringly cold wind, and the tears leave little salt tracks that freeze and chap on your cheeks and temples.

Yes. People did look at me funny.

For all I bitch about the people i have to deal with (not my bosses, or co-workers, they are all pretty awesome - mostly clients), i adore my job. I really do.

Even being out in freezing cold (like yesterday, 12 F in the sun), its still an awesome job.

I got to watch a fox take down a hare yesterday. There was a flash of white, then a streak of brown and a bunch of jumping around. Then the fox looked at me from about 80 ft away with the hare in its mouth. It looked pleased with itself.

I've seen a great blue heron attacked by a bald eagle - the heron won, and drove the eagle away.

I've seen peregrine falcons dive bomb each other, like little fighter planes, right over my head.

We discovered a graveyard that stopped a building project - the last person buried in it was in 1795, when Maine was still part of Massachusetts. The last time it had been taken care of was probably not long after (there were a LOT of very large trees around it). No-one had any idea it was there.

I've recovered survey monuments that were set over a hundred years ago, and came within a few inches of the recorded position.

For all I bitch about the people i have to deal with (not my bosses, or co-workers, they are all pretty awesome - mostly clients), i adore my job. I really do.

Your job sound awesome!
I have seen video clips of fox.
We have some, now.

I have no idea where they came from.
They were not here last century.

I have spoken to other locals that remember the fox as a thing of fairy tails and TV.
That critter is here. I have seen them. I have never seen one make a 'kill".

He looked at you?
How amazing to be a part of your world.

Maine? Dear God! It is how cold there?
The Internet says it is 16 F -9 C.

Balmy? burrr.

The natural world has made such a lovely comeback.
How soon we forget.

We had so many fucked-up problems 50 years ago that are so much better, today.
I see Heron, too.

I also see Eagles; Both Flavors, Bald and Golden.
The number and ID of the hawks is unknown to me.
The Red Tail Hawks and Golden Eagles have become my favorites.

I have never seen an Eagle go after a Heron.

I had a Heron spook when I was about 15 feet away from it.
That is a big bird. I love the sound of wings. Those big wings make an impressive sound.

I know we have many more big birds today than we did for a while.
Remember the environmental movement folks?
They did so much good stuff.

I rarely see these wonders of nature without breathing a prayer of thanks for them.
I am a boring person. Today I am allowing the Rain to fall while I talk too much on the internet.

I hurt my back.
Those may be some of the world's most common words.

This time I blame the Concrete donkeys. I helped to picked up old concrete donkeys.
It only hurt a little on the day I did it. Why?!

Why does it hurt so much more, later? ech. I know the answer.
It's a two fur...
1. Bradykinin production.
2. Inflammatory responses.

Mind over matter would be so nice.
I understand this process to the electron transport systems involved.

Now; Make it Stop Hurting!
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

The internet is a marvel when it takes me only fifteen seconds to find the last episode of Neighbours I ever watched, the date I watched it, and throw me some screengrabs along the way. It was the 3rd of August, 2005, at 5:25pm. The television (which took three minutes to switch on, said 'digital' on the front, and only had an RF connection at the back--not even a SCART--leading us to question why they felt the need to include the word 'digital' in the first place) was placed precariously on the worktop of our kitchen/dining room divider in our dusty, cramped apartment behind East Putney tube station. We were close enough to the platform to learn the cyclical, robotic announcements by heart. I was grilling a rainbow trout, to have with a store-bought pack of 'Greek' salad (wilted lettuce with rubbery olives, a few cubes of alleged feta, and what appeared to be a small sachet of seminal fluid), and Lou Carpenter, the stalwart of Ramsey Street, and winner of the longest-running TV bromance in history (along with his accomplice Harold Bishop), was playing Dungeons and Dragons with some pre-teens (Penny Weinberg and Bree Timmins) in a shady room around the back of Erinsborough HIgh.

It was a filler sequence, not part of any plot arc (though it had been alluded to in previous episodes--the other adults thought Lou was joining a cult because he had been caught wearing GM robes), and never referenced again (I may have taken liberties with the "last episode I ever watched" statement above; it was the last episode I remember watching, right up until the episode where Paul Robinson blows up an aeroplane containing the entire cast). All I remember was that it appeared to be a complete non-sequitur, used dodgy 8-bit music (like 0:46 of Who Cares Wins), and was so wonderfully bizarre, I've never been able to forget it.
Away, you scullion! you rampallion! You fustilarian! I'll tickle your catastrophe.
