When it Comes To Predictions . . .

I AM HOT!! That is, unless you count percentages. I have hit about five of the thirteen predictions that I made back in January. I have some months left, though. You can see them here.

There are two that REALLY stand out that I picked. One is the death of Anna Nicole Smith and the other is recent - drum roll, please . . .


PREDICTION #8 This summer will be one of the hottest ever in the midwest.

This is a legitimate prediction because I didn't say that it was going to be hot. I said that it was going to be one for the hottest EVER!


The USA sweated this year through its hottest summer in 70 years, with temperatures not seen since the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, according to a government report.

From June 1 to Aug. 31, as summer is defined by the National Climatic Data Center, the continental USA had an average temperature of 74.5 degrees, based on readings from hundreds of weather stations nationwide. It was the second-hottest summer temperature the government has recorded since it started keeping track in 1895. The only one warmer — by about two-tenths of a degree — was in 1936.

Now, if I could just predict those Powerball numbers . . .

You could put these powers to good use, you know. The possibilities are endless.

Nice one! ...and, there are these new "oak mites" in the suburbs of Chicago that have been burrowing into people's skin and causing trips to the ER because of extreme discomfort. So, I think that could qualify as a "health threat" by a new insect. What do you say? :)

Could you predict a new career for me, please? I hate mine.

Or the Powerball numbers? If you win millions, I would only need 1.

I wish it was fall.

Oh Great Psychosomatic Swami, will you tell my fortune? Will I ever know true career satisfaction, or am I destined to work for the profit of cold-hearted corporations?

Have a good weekend!!

Jeff, I think you should immediately book yourself on Montel Williams and give Sylvia Browne a run for her money.

Random Magus said...

I agree with all the comments above... and if you can predict anything about me...I'll be totally indebtedness to your Hottiness!!!!

Ahhh, Powerball. I know it's silly, but I LOVE planning what I'd do if I won. Passes the time while I'm driving (since my radio was stolen).

God said he could give you the numbers IF you really buy a powerball ticket :)

Jeff said...

Kristen: The percentages would catch up with me. I would go on a limb to do good, but would miss the mark and cause more harm. That is a prediction.

Steph: You convinced me. My percentage just went up. ;)

Hoosiergirl: Good news for you. I predict fall will be here within the next four or five weeks. :)

And yep, I like you enough to list you on my blogroll. Now, don't blow it! ;) lol

Jeff said...

Jerry: I predict that you WILL have career satisfaction. However, it will only come when you adjust your definition of a little bit.

Sayre: Yep, and thank God for AC.

Shan: I see that you mean "head". LOL, things are getting more clear to me.

Jeff said...

Paper Fan: Is it possible to book yourself? ;) Sylvia is a little weird. I shouldn't defame a colleague like that, though. lol

Random: I predict that there is going to be a new child in your life by the end of the year. I am not saying, necessarily, that it will be YOUR child, just a kid that will be in your life in some, at least slightly significant way.

Chosa: I like that, too - mainly out of necessity. :)

From God's lips to someone else's ear. I actually bought a powerball ticket this time. Someone in Indiana won, but not me. Of course, idiot me took a quick pick instead of predicting the numbers myself. lol How's that for my abilities going to my head, Shan?

While your at it could you predict the Mega Millions jackpot for me. Not only has it been hot where I live, but it has also been the dryest in five years I think. We hardly got any rain this month.
