    February 2015

    We're sitting on the tarmac in Toronto. It's minus 38C. On a related note, I've found religion in the last five minutes and will now be doing some hardcore calls to the Big Guy to get this bird off the ground.

    There should not be a 70 degree difference anywhere or at anytime in the world.

    Let's GO!!!!!

    It's now minus 39C and I've decided to go in another direction and start practising the dark arts. The flight attendants seem a little irritated by the pentagram of fire I've constructed in the aisle. They'll thank me when the door opens in Oranjestad. If I could just find some bat blood....

    I've given up on religion, Satanic or otherwise, and have decided that my best option is to throw a tantrum in the aisle until the plane takes off.

    Wish me luck!

    Sadly, a two-year-old beat me to the tantrum option and was rewarded with a juice box. Well played, two-year-old, well played.

    Time to break out the "I'm carrying a kidney to save someone in Aruba" card.

    By my calculation that is -38F. Holy crap! Is that actual temp or wind chill?

    Luggage finally loaded... Something about not wanting the handlers to freeze to death...do they not understand that I'm on a timeline for 3:00 margaritas by the pool?!?

    Now we need to wait for a tractor to come and pull us somewhere. Canada...ALWAYS with the agriculture.

    Screw it...I'm changing into board shorts right here in the seat. That'll get them moving, I'm sure.

    Wind chill.... Which I've never understood... If I keel over dead in the cold, my last gasp will be me screaming, "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS REAL TEMPERATURE!!"
