Still very cold today ...

... but hasn't reached "damned cold" yet. Plugged in block heaters everywhere (not me yet ... hurrah for Honda toughness) and windchills down in the minus twenties; my side-fringed scarf (the one that looks like a giant centipede) is finally getting used. Did some work on my "Arctic" scarf last night ... hopefully I'll finish it this weekend, on the premise/hope that if I have the garment available, I won't need it.

Supposed to stay cold all weekend, but I'm prepared. D. delivered my special order copies of Brad Meltzer's Identity Crisis and Kage Baker's The Children of the Company to my desk today (chortling 'cause he figured my buying the Meltzer after reading his copy was revenge for his "having" to buy his own copy of Finding Serenity after reading mine). Looks as if I'll be skipping vacuuming for another weekend ... new books take priority over all other things and are a prime excuse for spending a winter weekend curled up on the couch, drinking hot choccie and reading, right? Plus I've got another loaned DVD from M. to watch ...

I will venture out into the cold for a short while tomorrow, though ... promised G., a Calgary Public Library cataloguer who was recently transferred from downtown to my local branch (where she is now the manager), that I'd stop by and have coffee with her, and tomorrow is one of her working Saturdays. (G.'s former job was the second position of the "headhunting" adventure)

Hmmmm ... wonder if I could get that Arctic scarf finished for tomorrow ...
