Festivus is upon us

2009/12/25 Comments off

and while my gingersnap Ben & Jerry’s does not have Festivus printed on it even though it is the Festivus limited edition ice cream (what the heck is up with that?), I did run across a fascinating and important single page site that you can enjoy year round:

Best. Single. Page. Weather. Forecast. Ever.

Weather for San Francisco

Weather for Denver

“You may have to climb inside a tauntaun for warmth.” Oh, dear.

There’s also Naboo, Yavin 4 (“Also bits of the Death Star might fall on your head”), and Tatooine. Maybe more but I need to stop laughing for a while and catch my breath. This might have to be my home page from now on. Holy cow, I love the interwebs.

Note the small comment—Where’s a Tauntaun when you need one? Probably right behind you, mate. Not the greatest design (although a nice, high end, Swiss grid dealie with helvetica would be amusing; you know, for the contrast between ‘wang icicles’ and classiness), but at least it’s honest.
