You know you've been living in Minneapolis too long when you check the temperature outside and it's 10 F (that's -12 C, btw) and you think "Ah! A warm day."


In other news, don't miss this wonderful live chat with Lydia Davis over at the Book Bench blog. The woman writes short short fiction, loves Bach, Beckett and the piano, says most of what she writes is finished quickly and used and spends time arranging her stories but is then happy for people to jump back and forth through them. Sound like anyone we know?

Welcome home. I said the same thing to my roomie today: -12 C is not so bad. This is just from personal experience, but I think that the winter grows on you. You begin to feel proud of it, in an odd sort of way. And nothing compares to the enthusiasm with with you wait for and welcome the summer. Minneapolis summers are so good, they make you feel giddy. It would not have been so if you did not experience '-20 C feels like -26 C' ! Cheers to Minneapolis and the might of nature.

Perhaps it's time to reconsider the French and piano lessons?
