I hate cold and hot weather. My favorite seasons are Spring and Autumn, not too hot and too cold.

My favourite is spring, because in the summer it's usually either 35 degrees celsius or it rains and there's not much difference between autumn and winter herepaul-mccartney

However, spring hasn't exactly been that good so far either.

It depends on where you are in the world.  Some places, some times, have summer days that are in the high 70s -- perfect.

As for hotter days in the 80s or 90s (sorry, I don't do metric), I like them once in a while.  Ideally, I'd have a hot day once a week, on the weekend.

Where I live it get up to the 80s to 90s (not metric), plus humidity. Humidity is what kills it. During the summer time I mostly stay inside, for as soon you step outside you hit with the heat and you will be sweating in no time. Right now its 66, which is perfect weather to me.

Ok so I guess today's pet peeve would be this:  Why do women turn into total wierdos when they get pregnant?..Maybe it's the hormones?  

This is why:  My sister-in-law is pregnant, which is pretty cool for me, because I don't think I want any of my own, or at least not yet and I'm already 29.  

Anyways, her fiance got her a card and all this stuff, and she's posting it on Facebook saying it's her "very first mother's day"...  Oh I'm so sorry honey, but you're still pregnant..  so until you pop that kid out in September, you are not a mother yet. Am I an asshole or WTF?  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Your sister-in-law is being irrationally effusive -- which is part of being pregnant...blue-meanie

She might be crazy, but not about That. That baby is her child. She is a mother.

Yeah she is already carrying the child, so technically she already IS a mother. Or am I being a weirdo?

It's your opinions, but I still disagree.  I am a bit suprised that no one agrees...  I'm at an age where I thought I would be more sensative to this stuff, am I being a bitch or is the whole world gone crazy or WTF is going on?  

A pregnant woman is a "mother-to-be". There has been no BIRTH yet ...  birthing a child is a major factor of being a mother, isn't it?   I don't think you should be able to just jump the gun like that. Wait until NEXT year.  It ties in with how impatient people are these days .  Like cool your jets woman.

^^ I agree with you, LHL. A mother has a child that has been born. A mother-to-be has a child that will be born. There is a difference in my view.

I sort of agree..This is one of those things where I half agree half disagree on. There's the comment I posted, but I kind of agree with you too. I do see where you're coming from, if that makes sense. I can see why it's so weird and I would never post something like that either if I'd get pregnant.

Is it not the woman's child until she gives birth? Babies aren't dead until they're born; they are alive in utero. While a woman is pregnant, she is taking care of her baby. I would call a woman who does drugs and drinks while she is knowingly pregnant a bad mother. Mothering your baby doesn't start when the child is born, it starts once you get pregnant.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Thanks girls.  I feel like less of a bitch.  

unknown:  Although I still think she's jumping the gun, I see where you are coming from.

PS:  This is woman is a trooper, to give her some credit:  She's going to see Paul when she'll be 7 months pregnant!

^^ Might as well introduce baby to The Beatles/Paul as soon as possible. That way, hopefully, by the age of five he/she will be able to sing at least ten songs, know the chronological order of the albums and know that YS was not written by Ringo!

That is a pet peeve of mine. It really annoys me when people assume that.

It annoys me even more when people say ''Ringo never sang'' or when they mix up John, Paul and George in songs. As in ''Wow George sang Blackbird so well'' or something like that.

I think I might be repeating myself (but I'm too lazy to go back and check), but it bothers me when people think Paul is only a mellow pop softy (that's what the "Silly Love Songs" thing was all about back in the 70s).  Even worse, a friend of mine had the gall to add insult to injury by refusing to believe that it was Paul singing "Why Don't We Do It In The Road" -- he insisted it had to be John, because you know, John is more "raw" blah blah blah.

This is related to a similar pet peeve of mine -- when people make the same assumption about James Taylor, not knowing that he's not just a mellow folkie "singer/songwriter" but that he can be raunchy as well:

One of the many annoying mix-ups:

"I really like the way John sang Helter Skelter!" or something to that effect.

But sometimes that happens like Get Back for example where all four sang a version. There's also a version of Oh Darling! where John is singing, Strawberry Fields Forever with Paul singing and Octopus' Garden with George singing.
