The following post was submitted by one of our Addicts Regulars..Totbox. Perhaps you’ve seen Tot in the comments a time or two ;)…Yes Totbox is back with some insightful TSTO musings for us all!
Now that it is April, the first full month of Spring, I thought I should stop and smell the roses (which was stupid because they aren’t in bloom here yet). Since April also contains Earth Day (and without trashing Earth Day), I thought I’d celebrate it with one of it’s greatest gifts “Rain”. Yes, Rain, after all April showers brings May flowers. So join me in a little rain dance (unless you’re in the UK or someplace that rains all the time, for you folks just read along anyway) :p even if you Hate Rain or may feel under the weather.
With the mini-(firefighter) event behind us/nearing it’s end, I can get Alissa to post this (which I’ve written the day prior to the start of the mini-event, during all our speculations about a desert update). So here it goes –>
What started as an attempt to discuss all weather patterns, with the giant “L”s and “H”s just ended up trickling into a single drop of rain. I’m not going to talk about flooding or whatever horrible (displacing and life ruining) natural disasters that are probably taking place somewhere on this giant marble of a planet. Just keeping things simple and Simpsons (without the stuff I just mentioned). Here is a brief look at Winter and Summer heat…
A couple of my neighbors know that I use the Best Snowman Ever facades as a way to share what my weather is like on my end. Smallest form (means it’s warm), Full B.S.E. form means it’s very very cold or snowing but the carrot nose dangling means it is Rainy (fun fact… when I remember to change it). Anyway, the snow is gone from Springfield for now, so lets Make it Rain. Songs and kid poems, come to my head (as rain drops keep falling on it). I was thinking back at the good old days when I can jump in a big muddy puddle and not having to say “oh man, I got to go to work like this because I have nothing to chance into” and thus the Springfielders also enjoy and dislike the rain.
I’m not sure if this is event worthy but I thought of some requested characters that may fit in with such a dreary Theme. So here comes the Lightning Round.
Edit from Alissa….I thought it would be fun to see if you guys could name all this “one hit wonders”…so let us know in the comments below 🙂
And for People whom never got Sherry Bobbins, they could get another chance, after all she has her own Umbrella-ella-ella-ella (another song stuck in my head, sorry)
So I thought this might wet your whistle before we get this mysterious Desert Update. Who would like a Weather Event? :p
Like most awkward conversation starters “what’s the weather like where you are?” Is it raining where you are? Anything Special you like to do on rainy days? Do you use your “Best Snowman Ever” to tell your neighbor how you weather is? Do you have a favorite rain themed song or poem? Did this talk of rain make you sleepy or have you running to the restroom? Any of these one hit wonder characters you’d like? It’s ok to get a little wet and wild, sound off in the comments with your thoughts. Just don’t be too wild… Or to wet… Leave a comment, we’ll put some towels down 🙂
