Oooh, look! Is that a scarecrow?

We're having a nasty windstorm tonight.
I can hear the loud, LOUD winds whipping around out there. Not a good thing, because it makes me remember THIS.

So, I'm trying to think of things to distract me, except everything seems to come right back to the whole wind thing.

Allow me to demonstrate:

1. Diamonds.
Diamonds remind me of rubies, which remind me of ruby slippers, which reminds me of Dorothy, who got relocated by a tornado.

2. Hot sauce.
Hot sauce goes on tacos. Tacos can produce gas, which is a completely different kind of "wind" problem.

3. Politics.
Politicians are full of hot air, which can clash with cold air and cause wind storms.

4. Cats.
Cats are like tiny lions, which reminds me of the Cowardly Lion, who was friends with Dorothy, who got relocated by a tornado.

5. Abraham Lincoln.
Abe was from Illinois, which has Chicago, which is known as the "windy city".

6. Nickels.
Nickels have Thomas Jefferson on them, who had the same last name as George Jefferson, whose wife was named Louise but he called her "Weezie," which sounds almost like "Lousisiana," which got hit by Hurricane Katrina.

7. The Olympics.
Reminds me of gold medals, which are the same color as the yellow brick road, which is where Dorothy ended up after she got relocated by a tornado.

it is so funny how the wizard of oz comes to mind during storms. The other day i was driving down a road at 5 am. Everything was gray and all I could think about this movie. Great post.

The 6 degrees of seperation of the Wizard of Oz.

Can I try?

Baseball, which makes me think of the Yankees, who have A-Rod at third, and he used steroids, and that blows...

Wow, it really works.

Gwen: And she got to wear expensive footwear while doing so!

Ren: It still brings back bad memories, even though it happened more than ten years ago. That much wind... it makes a sound I'll never forget.

JustAGirl: At 5am over here, everything's still dark. :)

BroadwayMatron: I try!

DaOldMan: See?
