I bought my tickets yesterday, by the way. I leave Edmonton at 12:30 a.m. Christmas Day and get into Boston by 10:30 a.m., which, when I look at it right there, it looks like I'm going back in time. But perhaps I'm just rather tired. I'm in the Northeast until the 5th (Friday), which is very exciting. I will be doing my best to run around and see everybody while I'm there, so if you live in Massachusetts or surrounding states and you'll be around, let me know!
In other news, the wind chill today is NEGATIVE FORTY-THREE. I would like to repeat that, in much larger letters and possibly italicized: NEGATIVE FORTY-THREE DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. Weather Underground is referring to that as an "extreme" wind chill. If this keeps up, I'm going to cut eyeholes in a comforter and wear it over my head in the manner of your typical ghost costume, but with more padding. It will look absolutely ridiculous and small children will probably point and laugh (or scream and run), but at least I'll be warm and my nose won't fall off.
Also, the subway froze to the tracks this morning.
