That totally makes sense! And I wouldn't be half surprised if more than one of us are a bit dodgy. ;)

Ok, I have another question to pose for liesl_99801. How do you manage to work on Gabit if you are in Juneau, Alaska? Now I've been there and I am almost sure it is not next to England. I could have sworn it is closer (but not that close) to where I am in Seattle. Just curious. I know AT loves animals, and some of us fans qualify in other ways, but are you promoting her to whales and seals and such??? Hey, fading minds want to know.
I think I am spending too much time at my keyboard. Oh well, got to do it if I want to make a buck.

They got to watch Continuum being filmed. That's what started them all hanging out at Liesl's house for the reruns.

One of the first things I learned at my job... If you're not being heckled, you're just plain not loved. Only the people we consider not to be part of the family get treated perfectly politely. Otherwise, the rule is to come up with the most outrageously & obviously untrue insults possible. I usually get teased about being a mafia kingpin. ;)

Hello,

Sorry I have not posted lately but this Polar Bear has been in transit to the UK. I am currently at what is known as the Gabitry (Julia's house) for a staff meeting. Will not be home till April 7th. I will have limited internet access but will answer any questions people might have as soon as I can. Cheers!!

P.S. The Dodgy Scot (i.e. Jenn) arrives tomorrow for the meeting!!! LOLOLOL

Dude, it was WAY nicer yesterday than it has been (only -9C)!!!! Just last week it was -29C... At least now you know what I mean when I say the weather is obscene. Seriously, is it not supposed to be spring?

I'm sorry... My brain refuses to accept -29C as a temperature that happens where humans live. It's possible I've been spoiled by very mild winters. (We got to -16C last January. The city shut down and the news was talking about how it was the coldest winter in 40 years.)

-29 is really nothing... a little ridiculous for March, but we get -56 here occasionally, and -40 regularly. Funny stuff when you are out walking and nobody else is in sight. It's like "Um, should I BE out here?" The consensus is: probably not. When I was a kid and it was -40 my siblings and I used to see who could run around the house naked the most times. We may have been suffering from brain damage. I think this only resulted in one instance of frostbite. Mm-mm-good. I wonder if my mother knows that we did that...

Maybe just freezer burn..... too cold for me. But I guess it is what you are use to. Seattle doesn't get that cold but am intertube could be useful. Make it easier to get to the grocer on come days.

yesterday we were in ft. mcmurray,ab., and i was sure it would be colder since it was so much farther north, but i packed the car and had to take my jacket off. i'm surprised at how warm it was. the trip was a disappointment tho because the book said i'd be able to see the northern lights there, but there were no lights. i was so disappointed. i've been looking forward t0 that for months. i did see more stars than i've ever sen in my life tho.

Alberta tends to be warmer due to Chinooks and whatnot. There is also a lot more protection from wind than you get out on the flat old Saskatchewan prairie. But it is finally warming up here!

Unfortunately for you, you can only see Northern Lights when it is VERY cold. I actually haven't seen any this year - it just didn't get cold enough. They are apparently becoming rarer and we will eventually not be able to see them at all from North America (according to my brother - although what his source is nobody knows). What a shame... I really missed seeing them. They really are remarkable and one of the benefits of a polar climate.

Perhaps with enough helicopters, a good wind could also be created by the propellors, although I would venture a guess that the temperature of said wind would be dependent on the climate........... We should attempt an experiment. :p
