My Arctic Diary: by Buster

I awoke this morning to the 785th day of Arctic Captivity. Ice everywhere! The temperature was -21 degrees C. Looking at Persephone, I considered cannibalism but rejected it. After all, we are Englishmen. On second thought, we are not. Maybe cannibalism has its advantages.

The snowbirds came and stared mutely at us. I reflected that Mom's in Florida, and we're eating whale blubber up here in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Or Connecticut. Whichever is colder...

Times are hard. A lone polar bear wandered over and complained that his 401K was worth less than a "Bush/Cheney 2004" bumper sticker.

Worse, I am suffering from snow-blindness. My normally razor-sharp eyesight has deteriorated during my Arctic captivity to the point where...well...observe!

Pitiful, isn't it! I tried again, hoping that things would improve, but....

Sigh! I hope that a rescue expedition is on its way. I dream of sunshine and the smell of barbecue and languid afternoons chasing chipmunks.

Send help,

Fear not Buster, global warming is on its way.

Je vous inviterais bien chez moi mais ici aussi il fait tr├Ęs froid. Ni barbecue, ni ├ęcureuils ....
Bisous, Faya

Hope it improves for you soon.

We can't help noticing your beard draging in the snow, Buster! What a thing of beauty it is!
We want warmer temps too - we're getting hosed out of our daily walkies!

Love ya lots,
