    We still do that on active chatrooms, although I'm more keen on throwing pinecones. Or combustible lemons.

    It's cold ... damn cold. And there's an inch layer of ice outside. Driving in the morning is going to suck.

    Yet another reason I am happy living in SoCal. 70-80 all week. Happy Thanksgiving in advance. I do not miss the cold weather.

    Screw that, I'm perfectly happy in the cold. I'd go insane if we had those kinds of temperatures in November. Plus, I do all my work from home these days anyway. :p

    Different strokes . . . I play tennis outdoors roughly 3 - 4 days a week. It would be tough to do in freezing temperatures.

    Then you would find different sports. Or go to an indoor tennishall. One adapts, I'm sure.

    Personally, I like winters to be cold (not a lot of chance of that around here) and summers to be not too hot. A change of seasons is quite nice to keep things varied. I must be one of the few that actually likes the shorter days in winter, too.

    I like the shorter days as well. Daylight, especially direct sunlight, kills my vision.

    Goodness. I like to drive to the cold, ski on the snow, and drive back to the warm when done. Usually in four to five day trips, optimally.

    Just bought myself a new bike so that I can go riding after I play tennis. I had been using a 15 year old hybrid mountain bike/cruiser and was getting a wee bit tired of it.

    Now I can zip along like all the other cool kids . . . :p

    Except that I just turned 48.

    Old is a state of mind.

    Meh.

    One can dress for cold, for warmth one can only take off so many clothes before it becomes impractical. Or indecent.

    Anyway, cool kids may zip along, but I never bike with them. They're too slow :p

    Well, if you're only as old as you feel, I must have one foot in the grave already.

    I'm 44 and I don't feel old at all. I eat fairly healthy, get a reasonable amount of exercise, drink lots of water, and try and laugh as often as I can.

    My aikido sensei likes to say that smiling is a natural and relaxed state of the facial muscles. And I'm always like "What?" Smiling takes a lot of effort and is really rather stressful...

    When I relax my face muscles before a photo (as we're not allowed to smile on a passport foto), I look very grouchy. When I'm pissed off, you can see it from a 100m away. Sometimes I think I smile and I catch my reflection in a window and it's just neutral.

    Yet I have wrinkles in the corner of my eyes that people normally call laughing wrinkles (loosely translated).

    Looking pissed is pretty tiring, though.
