Boiling water and stirring counts as cooking!

Article from the Edmonton Metro
Frigid temperatures recorded yesterday shattered records set in previous years, marking the coldest Dec. 13 in Edmonton’s history.
The temperature at the Edmonton International Airport dipped to -46.1 C at its lowest point, smashing the -36.1 C record set in 2008, Environment Canada meteorologist David Schmidt said yesterday.
“It was a chilly one,” he said.
The Edmonton City Centre Airport recorded -36.6 C yesterday, beating the previous record of -32.8 C set in 1882.
“We’re probably experiencing the coldest temperatures we’ll see for the next little while,” he said.
Thankfully, Schmidt added, the season’s icy grip will ease by mid-week when the Arctic high-pressure area dominating weather over the Prairies will shift to a Pacific stream.
Temperatures will level out by Friday, likely reaching minus single-digits.
The all-time record at the International Airport was set in January 1972, when the mercury fell to -48.3C.
“We almost beat it — just within the two-degree range,” Schmidt said.
Edmonton was the coldest place in the world yesterday, second only to a Siberian weather station, where temperatures reached -48 C.
M and I were at Hallmark the other day and she came rushing over to me, so excited because she found the perfect ornaments for us, right beside each other. I said, “I bet mine is a shoe or a dress!…” Oh yeah, I am gooooood!
A pink Barbie shoe for me, and a blond Barbie on a horse for M.
We couldn't have planned it any better if we tried!
George, my Serta Counting Sheep that has been in my window for probably 5 years has been evicted, and replaced with the giantmicrobes Mono, Chlamydia, and Polio.
Yesterday i was walking to my car (not wearing my glasses) and from a block away I saw something green in the window. I thought, WTF! That better not be a ticket, because I know I still have 2 minutes left on the parking meter! I laughed to myself when I realised what it was. Oh, that’s not a ticket, it’s just my happy little toy Chlamydia!
I was shopping for a new keychain and when I saw this one, I knew it was for me. A keychain… that you can change the clothes on…!! That has my name written all over it. Oh yah, it’s pink too!!
Yesterday, I was in the gift shop at the Telus World of Science, when I saw a tag in a basket of stuffies that said “Ebola”. I laughed at the silly name for a snake. Then I reached for a purple round one with eyelashes: “Kissing Disease”. The sunny yellow one was “Herpes”. The happy green one was “Chlamydia”. The mean black one was “Polio”.
The toys were GIANT Microbes! The tags show the microscopic view of the actual microbe. How ingenious!! I wanted to take them all home with me! These 4 are my favourites:
|Kissing Disease ||Herpes |
|Chlamydia ||Polio |
As I was at the display, a guy and girl walked over and were talking about them. He was showing her one that he picked up, and I took that opportunity to offer him “Herpres”, which he willingly took from me. hehehe! I gave a stranger herpes.
I want to be a science teacher now, and have these little Microbes all over the classroom! They have a website so you can order these cuties online GIANTMicrobes .
|Bad Breath ||Bookworm |
|Common Cold ||Ebola |
|E.Coli ||Egg Cell |
|Fat Cell ||Flesh Eating Disease (love the fork & knife!) |
|Lyme Disease ||Sperm Cell |
This past weekend I took at trip to the Lucky store and tried on practically every pair of jeans in that shop. I found only one pair that fit me, their Easy Rider jeans (pictured on the right).
Unfortunately, I left empty handed because they only had one pair of Easy Riders in my size and one leg was sewn shorter than the other! The jeans were only 32” to begin with so hemming them was out of the question and with heels on, the un-even leg length was so obvious even a man would notice it.
A stop at the GUESS store proved to be more productive. I tried on 2 pairs of jeans and went home with a pair of Alana Bootcut jeans! (pictured on the left)
I also totally love those shoes and want to track them down. I think they are the Cashy shoes (pictured below).
I stuck my finger into his cage to try to pet him. After a little bit, he turned himself so he was hanging upside down from his perch that was low to the cage’s floor. Next think I knew, he was on his back, feet in the air and not trying to get up. I was terrified that I had broken the $2000 bird!!
It was time to go and I said goodbye to Rex and walked away. He started chirping at me to come back. I walked back to the cage, opposite the side he was on and he came over to me for more attention. Again, when I walked away, he called after me. Awwww, Rex loved me too! I wanted to take him home soooooo bad.
Reading up on the species, they are playful and energetic and love to listen to music and dance! and form strong bonds with their owners. They are intelligent and require lots of stimulation to ward off boredom. Sounds like my kind of bird! They eat nectar, pollen and fruit instead of seeds, and thus keep an untidy cage with wet droppings that needs to be cleaned daily… why can’t pets be neater??
My buddy Lacey and her boyfriend, Len, applied for a contest to go to Thailand and blog and tweet about their adventures!
When they are named semi-finalists, I will remind everyone to go vote to send Lacy and Len to Thailand!! http://ultimatethailandexplorers.com/

I saw this today in the window of a tanning bed place. It reads:
DID YOU KNOW? 17 forms of cancer linked to Vitamin D deficiency!
Ummmm, are they trying to use the message “Risk skin cancer so you can ward off 17 other forms of cancer” as a selling feature of tanning bed use?
Don’t be scared into the tanning bed!
- Food sources of Vitamin D - seafood! cod liver oil, herring, catfish, salmon, mackerel, tuna, eel, sardines (plus they provide you with Omega-3 fatty acids), whole egg; fortified foods, milk, some juices, cheeses, yogurt, breakfast cereals.
- Vitamin D supplements - 400IU containing the D3 form (it may be listed as cholecalciferol).
- Sunlight - your body produces vitamin D every time it is warmed by the sun.

S is being possessive of the first 2 spiders, but he has graciously granted me ownership of the third, “nameless” spider. His “boy” spiders are “8-Legs” and “Wheels”. I have named my girl spider “Charlotte”.
