friday night, a small but shiny bunch of us gathered to partake of pizza, alcohol and conversation, and lo, it was good. talk turned to the different types of cold* and ways of coping. i told the story of leaving a -40ºC canadian winter and flying into a -1ºC polish winter and freezing my nuts off.
moi: this is why i bought a shearling there, and it was the only thing that managed to keep me warm in a measly -1ºC! and now when it hits -30ºC in edmonton, i wear it and am warm.
mister p: shearling... isn't that what the ikea monkey was wearing?
*if you think there is no difference between a dry cold and a wet cold, don't even bother commenting, because you know NOTHING.
