HEAT

I was a wuss tonight and I turned on the heat for about two hours. The temperature in my bedroom read 16 degrees Celsius. It felt really cold. I raised the temperature by a single degree and it feels much nicer now. I’ve turned the heat off and I think I’ll be able to sleep better.

The forecast calls for possible snow late Friday night and early Saturday. That will be interesting!

COLD

This week has been the coldest temperature-wise since the beginning of the summer. The low is -3 degrees Celsius tonight and with the wind chill, it will feel like -6.

The temperature reading in my bedroom indicates it’s 17 degrees Celsius which seems really chilly but it doesn’t feel too bad actually. So far, I haven’t had to turn on the heat yet.

My walk to work is ok as well. I’m wearing a coat with a nice and thick liner inside. A toque helps as well. I can see some ice on the sidewalks and traditionally, the city of Burnaby rarely salts the sidewalk I walk to work on. It won’t be a big problem until it snows, at which point, that sidewalk becomes a death trap.

I don’t mind the cold weather so far, probably because it hasn’t snowed yet.

POPULAR

I used to view my traffic stats for this blog on a regular basis. I was very interested in how many views I got and which posts were the most popular. Somewhere along the way, that became a lot less important to me.

Tonight, for some reason, I decided to look my traffic stats for the blog. I’m pretty sure it’s not entirely accurate but according to the data that I do have, “Ramen Poops” was my most popular post by views in the last year. Over 800 visits were to that single post alone. I’m guessing there’s a lot of you people out there who get the poops after consuming ramen. Who knew?

SHE-RA AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER

On the weekend, I finished watching the first season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. This new Netflix series is the reboot of the original series from the 1980s. I never really watched the original when I was a kid but this reboot was incredibly entertaining.

I appreciated that this cartoon series is modern and reflects a 21st century world and values. Some of the characters have surprising complex backgrounds and relationships with each other. Nearly all the females are drawn in a realistic manner. Gone are the visuals of women with impossibly thin waists and large breasts. Women look like real women in this show.

I think this is a great series for young girls to watch. I hope to see season two in the near future.
