In other news our newly immigrated South African neighbors just asked my wive how she could wear shorts when it was so cold outside. It's still above 20°C and it can go below -10°C in winter here, so I have no idea how they will survive or if they really know what they have to expect in regard of low temperatures.

Oh boy.

My cousin has lived in Arizona for about twenty years, and once she came for an extended visit during a fairly brutal December. She refused to step out of the house unless a car had been heated up for her, and then she'd RUN into it.

What bothers me most in winter is not the cold but lack of sunlight. Short and gray days makes you feel dull too. As long as there's some bright sun (even no warmth), I'd take winter over summer anytime. I'm a fall/winter guy rather than a spring/summer guy.

Sunlight is my biggest migraine trigger, so it's the other way around for me. I get very sick of the cold and the icy streets, but I appreciate the darkness.

Has anyone ever visited Turkey?

My mother would be going to Turkey around next month. A shame I won't be joining her, haha, I'd love to see the Hagia Sophia at least once.  8)

I've been to Istanbul a few years ago. Uhm... 13 to be precise.

Was there about 9 years ago. Found Istanbul fascinating. Haggia Sophia very interesting.  Blue Mosque gorgeous. Topkapi palace excellent to visit. Food great, though we ate something that ate us back.

I would have visited you in Istanbul if you were too coming :) Maybe you could teach me some Muay Thai :)

Istanbul is a very nice city but too crowded for my taste. I too visit every once in a while and hate it the moment I'm faced with the traffic :)

South and east regions are very nice to have vacations, too. You should give a try :)

Well, yesterday was quite rainy. In fact this was apparently the worst storm to hit Spain ovef 100 years. The  ews had footage of streets turned to rivers, flooded houses and spewing toilets. The torrent and thunder and lightning reached us in the evening, and only just got better now in mid morning.

On the bright side: No sunlight-induced headache and I made some great strides in my writing

Eli, I saw people on the news unable to travel, is all ok with you?
You're lucky ;D

I'm having the day from hell...
I got home yesterday and wanted to relax today. My neighbours after the one closest to me are having a party or something and have got a sort of bouncy castle that says 'disco' in the garden, and have been playing loud music the whole day. I mean loud. LOUD. I've got double glazing and I can hear the music clearly, and I turned up the TV sound quite high, and it still interfered with the TV >:(
I went out in the afternoon, read in the café...
I do hope it's only today and not tomorrow too, and I hope it doesn't end too late :'(

Actually, I AM lucky. Seeing as we've been barely affected while there's been flooding and destruction all around us. Eye of the storm I guess. I took a stroll to the beach this morning and found it totally demolished by the storm.

I get up at five next morning to drive to the airport, and will get home about 16 hours later.

Sorry about your day, Bea.

People opening loud music are the worst types of people, seriously. There was one time where another faculty in my university were having a real loud party down near my faculty's dorm, on the night before our first rotation exam. People in my faculty were pissed as hell, and I try suggesting to them that we should go down and smash the party and people's faces in, but unfortunately no one would have that so we just had to try to sleep with the music.

Another time I was living in a share house and my housemates were partying on the day before an important exam. At 2 am. I had already changed into my boxing shorts and getting ready to go kung-ho on their asses, 1 vs 4, but fortunately I was able to rein in my temper just in time. It's fortunate too since one of them was a black belt at taekwondo and I'd probably get my ass wrecked if I went in there.

Could you call the police if the noise persist for too long?

Oh wow I'm a Kingkiller. That's nice. Coming back to it, we still didn't know why Rothfuss's the Kingkiller Chronicles was called that, what with the Doors of Stone latency. Anyone have got any speculations?
