Grab a Light Jacket, Quick!

Christmas is coming.  You know what else is coming?  My favorite day.... the darkest day of the year.  After which every day gets a little brighter and brighter, and I stay off the couch for a little longer and longer.

Christmas is a little bit different out in California.  The main difference you may wonder?  It's not freezing cold out.  In California "freezing cold" means the daily high barely reaches 62 degrees and it's cloudy and sometimes [gasp] misty (almost drizzling... almost).  I have been here long enough that I too believe I am freezing my bunions off once the thermometer reaches 59...

This past week I have had the following conversation about the winter weather in Southern California:

Conversationist #1:  "It's getting sooo cold out!  I had to close my windows last night...AND turn on the heat!"

Conversationist #2:  "I know, it's crazy!  The other day I was walking to the bus stop in a t-shirt and jeans and the wind was blowing and I thought I should have brought a sweatshirt today!"

Conversationist #3: "Ya, I thought the same thing.  I was walking between classes and I was so cold, I had to put my hood on!"

It's rough here, folks.... you wouldn't understand...
