That said, I am pretty proud of the five minutes (a generous estimate) I spent snapping these sunny shots this afternoon:
To be quite clear on how veryvery soul-crushingly cold it is on this day, in the five minutes that I stood coatless&brave against the icy air, my coffee went from piping hot to chilled-to-the-core.
Just call me Nanook.
In weather like this I really should be wearing fur bloomers and a sealskin coat. Instead, I stand around in really inappropriate clothing and feebly attempt to warm myself from the inside out (which only works as long as coffee stays hot). Tonight I will take inner warmth to a new level as I stuff myself with spicy samosas and hothot curry and warm, sweet Darjeeling tea! Can't wait, can't wait (I'm in love with Indian food)!
