When you live in a small town in the far North, you have to get creative to find ways to stay warm and entertained indoors, as outdoor activities aren't a great option when it feels like -45C (-49F) outside (oh how I long for the days of mild -30C weather!)
Last night I joined Trivia Night at the Legion (similar to a bar quiz). It was a great way to meet some new people, even though the ego always takes a hit when you realize how little random trivia you know. Our team came in 2nd, so we didn't do too badly (never mind how many teams were playing...) The themes were the number 12 (what is a 12-sided figure called, without googling or looking at the photo below?), snow, sports, and celebrities!
I didn't take my camera along, so these pictures were taken with my blackberry. I had to make it clear that I was NOT cheating by looking up answers online with my blackberry, but was in fact documenting the evening for my photo blog :).
I'll leave you with the image below to get some sympathy... looking at the 14-day forecast ahead, I can see I'm going to have to find more ways to keep entertained indoors. Those temperature lines are going DOWN! How is that possible?! Brrrrr. I'm looking forward to the soaring temperatures of February 6.
