Weather, people and moods

Have you ever noticed how the weather seems to influence people’s mood? Well I have and that’s not a scientific fact. At l east were I am people seem in a better mood when the weather gets warmer ( thank goodness, if you ask me… I know you didn’t, but that’s how it is.)

It seems to give them a whole other outlook on life and not complain so much except for when they travel on the underground and then the action starts. Truly an event in it self.

There you sit feeling like you are in a sauna and the beads of sweat rolling off everyone’s face. Not a pretty sight to behold.

Then someone gets the idea to open a window ( truly a crime indeed). Then the action starts.. the first one starts with “it’s drafty “ and shuts the window, next its open again someone says it’s too cold, even though they look like they could pass-out from a heat stroke… it is simply too cold!!!

Another person gets on the train and opens the same window…if looks could kill.. that is their death because now someone shouts at them for opening the window and wanting to let some fresh air in. It seems like fresh air is dangerous nowadays. ( I bet you didn’t know that? If not just travel on the public transport in my city, and then you will know.)

The whole time I just sit there and enjoy the show and wonder what will happen next???? Sometimes I would love to ask the people “ what do you have against fresh air?” Maybe it’s better not to know the answer. I haven’t decided yet.

Though the other day I said something “ this is better than TV” to the person sitting next to me. They did not appreciate my humor, and asked me if I was okay… I thought to myself “ you idiot” , but instead just smiled at them which annoyed them more then the person opening the window. I knew that was borderline, so kept to myself the rest of the trip.

Another person sitting across from me started to complain about it being too warm in the wagon, but wouldn’t open the window because they were worried that there could be a retaliation from some passengers, so decide against the idea. Because those around him said “opening the window would cause cooler air to come into the wagon and could cause injuries”…. Don’t ask me the logic behind that, but it was definitely an original sentence.

Somehow, this opening and closing the window and of course complaining has become a national pastime on the local transport in my area. Which means when out and about make sure you have your own air conditioning system with you so as not to upset those near you and cause an argument.

Enjoy going on public transport!

Christmas Countdown

Time is running out and it’s „ Christmas Countdown „now to do the last bit of running around for whatever it is you need for that big event day of the year 25th December … HELP!!!

My, how much emphasis is placed on a few hours and all that preparing, shopping and planning and so forth. If I was only paid for all the time I spent planning, shopping and cooking I would be a multimillionaire by now…

Please Santa: Where’s my pay check for all the work I have done throughout the years… This wish is at the top of my wish list this year and if it could only be fulfilled … Santa; please I have been good all year!! Though I doubt very much that my wish will come true so, I will settle for the recognition and thanks from everyone.

Got sidetracked with Santa there.. Sorry

Now it’s a race to fight the crowds and find that last minute present or anything that is leftover in the stores and buy the rest of the groceries… I’m starting to sweat just thinking about all that running around.. Great way to burn calories as long as I don’t stop to eat or drink anything.. More room for the Christmas bird than!!! I’m getting hungry just thinking about all that food that I still need to buy.

Plus, why did they plan Christmas on a Wednesday this year?? I need to have a word with those calendar producers about which day Christmas should be on. I always thought Santa had some influence on which day Christmas fell on, but I guess with modern times he is losing his influence too.

When I saw everyone running around yesterday looking for that perfect present they did not have a smile on their face or look cheery.. No sir they simply looked stress out!!!

Christmas countdown: it’s all about rush,rush and rush, but I want some time not too rush around and so my countdown to Christmas has started , and if I have forgotten something for that great day… Well, sorry because I don’t want to rush. I want to enjoy life too!

Enjoy your Christmas countdown whatever you decide to do!!
