today's weather: - 26 C (-15 F)
definitely staying indoors. :)
just did my near-daily round of calls home to the parents (usual length of call: 1 minute if it's dad, 40 min if it's mom, haha, but then i call dad every day and mom every few days). mom wasn't home, but my brother answered. and then, he proceeded to chat away with me for 4 min 19 seconds. this is an unprecedented world record. :o
my brother is a very restless person. whenever we accidentaly end up talking on the phone, it's usually a very stressed affair where everything i say is met by a rushed "mm, mm, okay, mmmm" and obvious wish to end the call immediately. so. am a bit surprised. we chit-chatted about _several_ topics in a relaxed way. _i_ ended the call.
