Oh, Minnesota.

It feels so cold today. It's 21 degrees, but the wind chill brings it down to 9 and while I realize this is going to feel like coat-free weather in a few months, my toes are numb.

My car door froze open today. I unlocked it, climbed in, went to shut the door... and it bounced back. I checked all around the door frame, and couldn't see anything in the way so I tried to shut it again. No dice. I began looking for broken pieces on the ground, and couldn't find anything. At that point I realized I have no idea how car doors latch/on what, and I can't see a change when I push the lock button or pull the handle... so I panicked briefly, thinking I had broken some mechanism inside the door and would have to take the car to a body shop... but then I decided to just turn on the car, warm it up, and see if anything changed. It didn't immediately, and I had to pick up my white model, so I used my seatbelt to lash the door to the seat... kept it locked, and by the time I got to school it shut again. Go figure.

Clearly, Monday wasn't enough of a Monday for one week. Wednesday wants to get in on the action. Whatever. I have amazing pumpkin spice coffee, and I used egg nog as creamer 'cause I am awesome. I'm going to go back to reading Eragon and see if I can't start liking it again.

Really?! I need to go to the store!

We are coffee snobs, and we grind our own specialty-ordered whole-beans every morning. Hah, but we have Jingle Bell Java (Peppermint), Pumpkin Spice, and a butterscotch one and omfg they're all so good with just boring half & half.

Okay, dude, my car door did that ALL THE TIME last winter! I thought I was the only one to whom that had happened! And if it wasn't freezing open, it was freezing shut. THAT SUCKED.

Finally, I brought it up with my stepdad, and he slathered the door latch (both on the door and on the car frame where it hooks on) with a stronger version of WD-40 so that it wouldn't do that anymore.

So yeah, you should probably get yourself some lube ;)

Froze open? Wtf? And then you had to use your seatbelt to keep it closed?? That's the funniest thing I've heard all day :D
