So this is me after one afternoon in the "sous-sol" (basement) of the girl's dorm/cafeteria on campus...and you are not even seeing the bottom half where I've wrapped my legs in a blanket, put on two pairs of socks and my slippers but my feet are still cold. It was cold down there! Thankfully it's not my usual place for studying but we were having an internet access problem in our building so I thought maybe I could pick up wireless down there and perhaps get some help from Google translate. No such luck. So it was me, my dictionary and my verb conjugation book writing my testimony in French in the sous-sol. I guess I could have gone home where it was warmer but sometimes home is distracting and besides I thought if I stayed in the cold, I might get it done faster.
Now some random thoughts on Winter...somebody should write an extremely happy song about walking in a "Static Wonderland." Static everywhere...this morning my pants were clinging to my legs so I decided to put on some static guard and accidentally reached for my bottle of mousse in the dark...yep, I pressed the button, listened to the juicy, bubbling sound and thought, "That is not what static guard sounds like!"
I can't believe it but there is actually iced up parts on the river that runs through the middle of Sherbrooke. Yikes! And supposedly the hardest part of winter is January. Here's to remaining just warm enough not to become a human popsicle this year!
