The Great Mincemeat Blog Festival

Will be postponed until Sunday.

How disappointing! I know many of you had set your alarms and marked your calendars for today's grand event. However, due to unforseen circumstances, making mincemeat will not be possible today. You see, I lent my biggest pot to my best friend and poor weather (and hence driving conditions) prevented its return. Tomorrow, the pot shall be returned, and hence, the Great Mincemeat Blog festival shall commence. After procuring all the necessary ingredients, its going to be one massive batch of mincemeat. Let the carnivale begin! (tomorrow!!)

So, mark your calendars (again) folks!

Mincemeat is beyond my ken, but so is -35. It hit -17 in Scotland years ago and went out to try to remember what it might be like. Blinking cold. You think: you could die in this! -2 or -3 is usually as bad as it gets here. What heroes and pioneers you all are! Hotboy

That's nothing...I'm going to Iqaluit for a sovereignty exercise in February with the Canadian army. The normal "high" is about -30 degrees celsius, while it dips to about -40 at night. This is without taking into account the wind chill. Thank fuck it's only for ten days....7 of those spent in the frozen expanse...in tents, go figure.

Eric: Would they shoot you if you blogged about that? Here we had secret videos on the news of Royal Marines running around battering each other in the bollock naked during initiation rights. Blotto on wife beater (Stella Artois)as well. Well, they couldn't get up to that malarkey at forty below. Forty below? Is a sovereignty exercise when you let the eskimos know who's boss? How can you live at forty below? Who's out there trying to rip it off? Does anything work at that temperature. Anyway, if you keep well wrapped up, it's bound to help. Hotboy. p.s. In tents? Won't your nose freeze off if it sticks out to breath? Dearie me!

I'll take photos and blog about it. I really have to get off me arse and start blogging...
I've done one of these operations a few years ago. It's mind boggling to meet the local Inuit people. They live in small communities year round up there. More to follow...
