Today, in Calgary, it is a balmy -30 degrees Celsius (not counting wind factor). According to weather sources, Calgary is the second coldest place on Earth right now, next to the South Pole.
Why is this fabulous news you ask? Because as previously stated, I am obsessed with the idea of owning my own little penguin* (actually an emperor penguin would be way more awesome-sauce because we could have dance parties in my living room). And now that Calgary is sitting in a temperature range that said penguin would be comfortable at, I feel I have better ground to petition this as the only thing I truly need for Christmas.
So, although I could join the masses in complaining about the blistering cold, or spend my day dreaming about flip flops and beaches (I am actually doing this too), I am going to relish in the icy-cool idea of having a pet always dressed for success. It's penguin awesome!
*before you get all PETA on me...I am well aware that I can't really have a penguin living in my apartment. But a girl can dream about how awesome it would be to have a little penguin friend to bring me cocktails (like in Who Framed Roger Rabbit!).
