Flip Flop Flying

Flipping cold

with 15 comments

For the last three days it has been very cold. Gott in Himmel! Es it kälter als der Tit von ein Hexe! Today, wind chill factor included, it’s -24ºC. That’s -11ºF. I’ve even got long johns on. I look like Chris Bonington after I’ve taken Billy out to do his ablutions: breath freezing on the moustachey bit of my beard. Even the wet nasal mucus is freezing inside my nostrils, which is quite an odd sensation.
Anyway, after Tori’s suggestion of adding Minipops to the Monaco section of The Flip Flop Flyin’ Pictorial Atlas of the World, I couldn’t help myself. I love drawing royalty. So much fancy detail to get into. One day I wanna do the whole English/British royal family. One day…

  3. ooo-keey… that was informative and exciting. But… where is ABBA, the Royal Family, Henke Larsson, the raw Herring, the Tall Blond Women, and the Absolut Vodka? I am just asking. Where is Sweden?!

    And by the way, it’s pretty cold up here to. I salute the invention of earphones covering most of your head when outside. Earwarmers a-n-d entertainment, yey!

  6. A suggestion for the Chile bit, maybe it would be good to mention the recent election of Michelle Bachelet, perhaps i’m being naive but i hope it’s kind of good thing happening to the country…? I hate the idea that countries/people are stuck in the past because one/a bunch (of) wanker(s) has polluted their history (ie Germany, US).
    Thank you.

  7. I was going to say it’s been really cold here too, but -24 is a bit mental. Still, I am pleased with how my new Homer Simpson slippers are keeping me warm.

  8. We’re currently at -9C, but with no wind for a change. I can’t wait til this cold snap has ended.

  9. I heard it was so cold in Germany that the penguins in Dresden zoo had to be moved indoors!

    Its quite cold here too, but I saw a girl in the bus queue this morning with out a coat so it can’t be too cold. But the lack of coat has been bothering me all morning!

  10. Hurrah! Love the Grimaldis. Looking forward to the Windsors…

    It’s not that cold here. But not sure I’d go out without a coat. Hmmm.

  11. Or do you mean ALL the Royal family, like the Tudors and the Stewarts, etc, etc?!

  12. Anne: sorry, I forget my male/female/neutral stuff.
    Elisabeth: coincidentally, Sweden IS gonna be part of the next update.
    Tori: I mean all of them, from Athelstan to Elizabeth II. And once I’ve done them, I’ll the Scottish one pre-Great Britain. Then the French, then… then…

  14. Hi Craig, just purchased yr MiniPops books, which is great, and thus found yr site, which is even greater.

    One small query – your Mini of Merv (Sumo/Fruitfly) Hughes rather resembles Jennifer Beals in Flashdance. Or am I missing something?
