Uncle Pax's Almanac: 02/10/10

Good Morning from Snowy Utopia, New Jersey.  Yes, we are currently in the midst of our third major snow of the winter season, and so far, this one is shaping up to be a real doozy! 

On today's date in 1982, Bismarck, ND, experienced its 45th consecutive day of subzero temperature readings which tied the previous record long string of subzero daily lows ending on the same date in 1937.

Take an extra lap if today's your Birthday - you can join Mark Spitz who was born on this date in 1950!

Obscure term of the day: "Got your glasses on".  Got an idea what that means?

Dorothy Parker gives us today's quote: "It serves me right for putting all my eggs in one bastard."

Here's wishing you a day full of softly falling snow, and a lack of egg carrying bastards!

According to the Hipster's Dictionary, the phrase,"Got your glasses on?" refers to a person who is "ritzy or snooty, fails to recognize their friends, and is considered up-stage."

Star, yup, that's it!
