i class february as winter, but it feels a bit springy today, and it was light when i woke up.
so is it spring yet?
Boob Monday seems a long way off.
about boob monday...
sorry, it's quite long!! Anyway here you go:
Ah, Tit Monday. It's not that far off now...
That glorious day when, heading into work on the bus, or walking to the tube, or sitting on the train, you find yourself suddenly chirpier than you have been in months. You find yourself smiling at strangers again. There is a mild involuntary tumescence in your trousers that comes and goes throughout the morning with the comforting regularity of a heartbeat.
And then you get a text around lunchtime from a mate which says: "At last, Tit Monday!" And you instantly understand why you are so happy. For Tit Monday is that special day in the year when, for the first time, the temperature rises above that magical point which causes girls getting dressed in the morning to decide to show a bit of skin.
After months of dull colours and chunky knit, the world's birds suddenly dive into last summer's wardrobe (they've not had chance to buy this season's stuff) and chuck it on without a thought. Your urban landscape is suddenly lightened with acres of naked arm and leg and, after many dark months of burrowing, breasts rising to the surface like moles at dusk.
Big breasts in white work shirts straining at the buttons. Small breasts braless in vest tops, the nipples frotted by ribby fabrics. Breasts in summer dresses bouncing in the distance so that they catch your eye before you even notice there is someone wearing them. Breasts nudging out from the crowd at traffic islands, quivering to cross the road...
And you know it is nearly summer. For previous generations, the arrival of spring was heralded by the sound of the first cuckoo. For us, it is Tit Monday.
Not that it always falls on a Monday. Like Easter, Tit Monday is a moveable feast. Last year it fell on a Friday. Friday 29 April, to be precise, when temperatures maxed out at 22.1C after nothing much above 16C all year. It last fell on a Monday in 2004, when temperatures leapt to 22C on 24 April.
And then, of course, there is Tit Monday Night. You see, in early summer, temperatures drop off very dramatically when night falls (Tit Friday 2005 dropped away to a parky 11.8C). But the dollies are not prepared. Slightly stunned by the morning heat, they drag out the summer clothes but forget to bring a cardie (a mistake they will not make again until next year), so that when they're all standing outside All Bar One after work celebrating the arrival of spring, their barely covered nipples have no protection from the cold. It's like a Bring-and-Buy sale where everyone has brought hat pegs. It's like a prog-rock gig where, instead of lighters, everyone is holding up nipples.
So when will Tit Monday fall this year? Will you be the first to text your mates with the announcement? Do not shoot your bolt too early. There will be false starts. You will smell fresh cut grass and see a couple of early starters and feel compelled to declare Tit Monday. But your more level-headed friends will tell you to hold your horses, keep your powder dry, don't fire until you see the whites of their bra straps.
As the poet said: one bold Northern slapper in a bikini doth not a summer make.
is some day that an internet warrior decided upon. If you have the power and the logistics in place to deceive the nation into breaking out their summer wardrobes, then please push that button.
i believe in it, it's magic is real
that is truly epic :')
it's freezing outside, 40 mins i had to wait for my train! 40 flaming ghey cold wintery mins! don't talk to me about spring, no, NO FLAMING WAY! ...unless it gets warmer later
but i think its just a sunny winter morning
any way conventional spring begins on 21st of march or something, during the equinox
the 1st march is my srpings sprung date
don't give me that lark, you know there is still plenty of summer up until mid september. also other argument for this is that you aren't welsh you massive fool!
I'm gonna go with no
it's been sunny since jan and this morning i wokr up and it was LIGHT and i could hear BIRDS singing. sign of spring? i think so.
that's not Spring.
Although I did go for a walk in the sunshine in the country yesterday and saw lots of animals so that made me feel quite Spring-like...
althought it was a park in london and i only saw dogs and starlings
i can't remember the last cloudy day in london, it's just been winter sun day after day after day. it "owns".
for listening to Yeasayer's album - true story.
Usually starts around March 20th ish.
