recurring theme: I'm cold.

TENGO FRIO. en serio. Hace 21 F.

Yeah. so this morning as we headed into work in our carpool (yes i carpool three days a week--two reasons, cheaper parking and less gas) at 7:30am it was 21 degrees F. 21. that's nonsense. There's no snow and there's nothing to show for this deep freeze except me, shivering, rueing the winds coming from the Fraiser River Valley. Yes, i am blaming Canada.

So i get to work, only to find that there are crazy people still riding their bikes to work. Seriously?? Which leads me to two important thoughts:
1. i must eat more. if all 103 lbs of me cannot survive this cold, there's no way we (royal we, meaning me myself and i) are surviving Alaska next winter.
2. i must buy ear muffs immeadietly. The metal in my ears is freezing and it gives me headaches.

To distract myself from the inevitable turning into a snowperson, i've been reading this website: http://mylifeisaverage.com/ it makes me laugh.


  1. I propose more drinking at work. You know, hot cocoa and whatnot.

  2. Blame Canada!!
    Now that song will be stuck in my head and I won't be able to sleep. Come to think of it, I haven't seen South Park in ages. Maybe I won't be able to sleep because I will be up watching episodes on the web. Damn you Martha.

  3. Also...do you have A cold? What exactly are you trying to say in your broken spanish? Yo no comprende. ;)
