That was a crap weekend, wasn't it? Well it was if, unlike me, you went outside at all. The outside is over for all of us until Texas bucks its ideas up. Guess what though? Texas is about to buck its ideas up.

Yes, even though there was only just a polar vortex/polar thingy the other week, this week we are to be treated to temperatures far below average again. Truly this is a wonderful time to be alive. It's something to do with a tornado off the coast, and a weather front, I don't know. I wasn't paying attention. I was too busy assembling a hammock so it's ready to go the second it's not horrific outside.

It was 103 degrees on Sunday. I think we can all agree that is cruel and unusual punishment. If only God had a constitution. Damn you, unconstitutional God. Haven't you heard about liberty?

Oh, and one more thing...

Dear this summer, please marry us. All of us. We don't want you to go away ever. Next summer your angry older brother will be back, and he treats us badly. Never leave.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
