That’s CELCIUS, friends.

I downloaded a brand new app for my Android a few days back. To celebrate 10 billion app downloads from the Android Market, they offered Ten Days of Ten Cent Apps. While I purchased many of these ten cent apps, the one I am referring to above is a customizable weather widget. I’ve been spending some time making the home pages of my phone perfect for my needs the last few days, and I decided to dedicate one entire page to the weather. Before getting ready to leave the house to meet my buddy Style Gent for lunch, I checked the weather, got dressed, and walked out the door, thrilled we were having another day of -3˚C.

As I made my way to the bus stop, I felt a bit more chilled than I should have for -3˚C. I hadn’t remembered seeing anything about a dramatic windchill, I figured I must not have noticed, that windchill must have been the problem.

Until I got onto the bus, and realized that I hadn’t changed my settings from Fahrenheit to Celcius. Whoops! Thankfully, I was mostly fine in my denim jacket puffy vest combination, although shortly after the pictures were taken, I wussed out, and accepted a drive home from my roomie, who graciously offered to save my thighs from getting wind chapped.

The moral of the story? Lace looks cute poking out of the bottom of a skirt!

  1. The lace DOES look very cute, and I’m glad you didn’t have to pay for it in frostbite. I’ve definitely gone outside without checking the thermostat at all – once, my legs burned for most of the walk to work, but by the time I got there they felt heavy and numb, like I was wearing 3 pairs of longjohns. Not the best gait I’ve ever had… ;)

    • It’s terrible – I think my favorite part is when your legs put off so much heat after you finally enter a warm place. When I lived in Ottawa, I used to walk around in the winter with bare legs all the time… I’m not sure how I managed to NOT suffer more form those silly decisions!
