I form my views based on results. Not delivery. Polished delivery is for slick sales folks with opaque agendas. Kind of like weatherman on networks. :)
I've been down the road that the OP chooses to go down. It won't lead him far, especially in our oversensitive "butt-hurt" society that we get to embrace in 2017.
Its one thing to have positive results. But delivery can go a long way, especially if you want others to follow along.

I thought you were leaving after your over-dramatic post the other day. What happened?
The online work thing did not go so well. And I found out citizenship there is even much harder than how it is given here.
Film crew at Santa's workshop are reminded of a flatulence-free working environment. It can be heard by millions of viewers, makes Santa faint, and ignition by camera may cause explosion sending reindeer flying in all directions. Thnx for your cooperaton.

Ok, so basically just some attention whoring before even researching moving to the Philippines.

No negative. I thought it was able to happen but there is always something new to learn.

Now back to the weather.

It is damn cold even in this library.

When you are cold even with a sweater on, in the library, something is not right about their heating.

It's been snowing all day here in Ottawa. When I woke up at 7 it was already snowing. Very windy and very cold too. Driving is a nightmare. My husband couldn't go up a slope an hour ago. Had to turn back and cars behind him did too. Glad I left work early.

Congrats ilovejaneandfinch. Disregard the haters in this thread. You're prediction is bang on in the majority of cases across the GTA.

I don't know what these meteorologists at Environment Canada and the Weather Network were thinking.
Ill explain why the weather people are "off" with their predictions.

JNF can afford to be completely honest with his weather predictions(and we appreciate it, Smiling Face With Sunglasses). They cant. They have to warn people if there is a chance of huge snowstorm. Why?. So people are aware, just in case it really is a madness out there. Thats why you usually hear the word "expecting" when they are making their snow predictions.

Same format during summertime. The words you will hear are: Heatwave, HUMID, Bring water, Make sure you are cool out there, Shade. They will repeat that over and over again, specially when its really really hot.

You can even see what they are wearing to see the proper attire for the day(applies to the majority). If you see the weathergirl wearing a toque, gloves, scarf and she is telling you to wear layers. Take her advice. Its going to be cold as hell.

The weather people adds a safety precaution.

But it is lol.

But I must say, I warmup pretty fast just from a few minutes of running.

I also like how Eaton centre is open REALLY early AND with wifi. So I am enjoying it now. I can switch to library at 9 am.

Yesterday we left Niagara Falls at 2pm (it was a mess) and drove to Ottawa (which was worse)... got here at 9.

By far the worst driving conditions I've dealt with in my many years of driving. That 401 closure didn't help anything.
