42 Fahrenheit feels oppressively warm this morning.

Being a Midwesterner is weird.

Although it does give you a visceral understanding of relativity, I suppose.

Should we do some sort of cultural exchange program or support group or something for people who live in Köppen hot-summer humid continental climate regions? I feel that we could really bond with the people of Kazakhstan and Bulgaria and learn new, innovative ways of walking on water-covered ice from them.

Also, I would be excited for all the dumplings, yogurt and tea would could have while we were in Sofia and Almaty. From what I understand, these cultures are dumpling rich and I would like to honor that.

Now I want to start a club that meets every two to four weeks to make, eat and discuss dumplings.

Anyhow, it's now after 5 pm and I'm still thinking about dumplings. So I guess that's what's gonna happen tonight for snacks.
