A Few Quick Notes 498

-Today was strangely warm, though as I write this we seem to be heading back towards temperatures below freezing. Assuming the forecast is correct, this cool weather should be with us for the rest of the week.

-For the past two nights we have had vegetable heavy chicken stir-frys. These have been consumed with relatively little rice. This is all just part of our continued effort to maintain healthy diets.

-Episode 2 of the second season of The Republic of Doyle will be airing tonight in Canada. I am particularly looking forward to this episode as a few of my good friends will be appearing as extras. One of them can be seen is this still from the episode promo (he is the guy standing with his arms crossed to the left of the guy with the tattoos).

-I have recently been on something of a blood orange consumption spree. Yesterday I likely consumed about 6 of them (and five in a single sitting).

-A few days ago I realized that I haven't been to a liquor/beer store since mid-December. This also means that I haven't purchased beer or other alcohol from such a store in the same period of time. All things considered, this is likely a good thing.

-It seems that the two dogs that have been using the green space across from my window have recently been accompanied by a new chaperon. This new guy seems to be a military guy, or at least someone wearing a uniform that is militaristic. Weird.

In Halifax, I would think that a militaristic uniform is common, not weird.

What is strange is not the militaristic uniform but the absence of the original chaperone.
