This is just insane.
Earlier this week it was so cold here that we were literally at -50. So cold, in fact, that the governor declared school was cancelled. For TWO DAYS IN A ROW!
To put that in perspective, there hasn't been a school cancellation here due to extreme cold since 1996. So it's a pretty big deal.
You can just about imagine how I'm feeling.
All this cold weather has spurred a lot of funny conversation with you folks. Two of my favorite interactions have been as follows.
First, a suggestion for a new costume came in from someone who comes to my aerobic classes:
Hmmm... I appreciate the thought, but... even I have standards of things I won't wear. Sorry. LOL!
Also, I suppose it says something about me that people are suggesting things like this to me. I mean, they must think I would consider it...?
Oh boy, I guess my costumes have gotten a bit out of hand as of late. Before New Years, I taught an aerobics class with a string of LED lights wrapped around me. Which, in and of itself isn't really that big of a deal... until you take into consideration the fact that the battery pack required 3 D sized batteries and was about the size of a brick. Fortunately, it fit in my SPIbelt, and I wore it around my waist (at my back).
Anyhow, I digress.
My second favorite interaction was this:
Honestly, that Facebook exchange wasn't THAT funny to me. It was the following that really got me:
Wow! One of my Facebook status got reposted. I feel like a celebrity. #IamAWESOME!
OMG. I just used a hashtag.
In response to the cold, my sister decided to start creating some really cute stuff in her Etsy shop, so before I go, I thought I'd share. And no, it's not the nose warmer above (although she could probably hook you up with one if you want it, just convo her). Check it out:
Yep. That's a Minion hat, Minecraft Creeper hat, and ... AH! A shark! Super cute, right? If you're interested, check them out here.
Well, that's about all I have to say today!
So tell me, how are you going for you in the cold these days?
