winter wonderland

I'll try to post about something other than the weather and other people's writing soon, but god, it's freezing cold. A few weeks ago I took out the detachable cuddly lining of my beloved parka, turning my parka into a plain ole khaki army jacket a la Lindsay Weir. And today I will have to attach it right back before I go out, as right now I am shivering with cold despite the fact that I am (a) wearing a jumper and (b) inside my well-insulated house. I just gave in and turned the heating on. I never want to leave the house, but I'll have to go round to the shop soon because I ran out of milk this morning. And I'll have to go in to my tap class this evening. I've written before about the power of tapping to revive me when I wasn't in the mood for going into town, but I don't know if even executing a perfect Suzy Q step could compensate for having to wade through freezing puddles in the middle of May.

On the plus side, I got Laurie R. King's Locked Rooms yesterday, so I've got something entertaining to read. And I'm knitting this, only in wool that's actually nice. But while both of these things are entertaining, reading detective novels and knitting woolly things are meant to be winter amusements! This is all wrong.

Yes! HATEFUL RAIN!

When and where is your tap class? Now that I don't have choir on Wednesdays anymore until September, I am intrigued...

It is at eight in the dance place on Ormond Quay next to Sin É! You should come along tonight, a lot of new people joined last week. So much fun!

Probably not this evening, but I'll try next week. Do I need to get tap shoes?

You don't need them, but they would make it more fun. Any hard-soled shoes would do, really.

You're not alone! I'm shuffling around in layers and had the heating on yesterday. I've had a bad throat all week and the threat of a cold so I've had to forego Broken Social Scene tonight as I know I'll get sick if I don't rest.
Still, I'm going to get a nice Avoca blanket, listen to some music, start a new book and possibly *accidentally* stick the telly on tonight at 9 and watch the Big Brother launch. I have no shame.
