The weather has been quite diverting! I got to walk to the bus stop in -17 F/-22 C temps this morning, with some wind chill, and it got up to a whopping -4 F/-20 C for my walk home. And that was longer, as I got off at the library instead of my usual spot so I could drop off and pick up some books. Thank God for thermal underwear! I brought my heating pad along too, so my mile-plus walk home was just a treat. =)

     I was also quite diverted on Sunday when I had to sit around for a few minutes waiting for Chipotle to open so I could use my gift card to treat myself to a burrito for finishing book 4. (Yum, yum!) Some of the text on the back of the gift card was hilarious--I just love it when companies have a sense of humor!

Of course, your Chipotle "Burrito Bank" Card may only be used for making purchases at Chipotle restaurants - you can try to use it someplace else, but we doubt they'll accept it, and they may even laugh at you. [...] Chipotle is not responsible for unauthorized use of this Card - namely someone other than the rightful owner using it to score a burrito, or anything less sinister like scraping ice off of your windshield or gum off of your shoe. ...

     Heh, and now that I type that out, I finally spot the overly-precise use of "off of" that I've recently learned is provincial and must be stamped out of my writing. I wonder how many other bad grammar habits I've picked up from gift cards? ;D

     I looooooooooooooooooooooove winter!
