Me, the coldness and 26Mbps

Today I realized how annoying I can be. It was at lunch time (although I didn't notice it until I came back home), and I was talking about marmalade (jam) and fresh fruits. Somebody was telling me where to find things from outside Norway, essentially an immigrant neighborhood and I just shut up at him without even realizing... To top it off, after that somebody else came to talk to me and I did it again....
And afterwards I ask myself why sometimes people is scared of me.... But as my psychiatrist once told me, the first step in solving a problem is acknowledging there is a problem, so let's see what I can do to avoid "frightening" people.
In other topic, I thought I knew what was coldness all about. I thought I could manage without problems since I like to hike and camp and all that.... how wrong I was... In the little time I've been here
my body has proved that is not designed for this weather... first it was the humidity (or better said, the lack of), my body seems to need some minimal humidity to work. Since here everything is so cold and every place has heating, the humidity seems to be very low. Then my lips started turning purple... hopefully it fixed using blistex, but I still feel them a little "unease" about the weather. And of course, everytime I go out I need to wrap myself in tons of stuff or risk to freeze myself while walking.... Strangely enough having a short day hasn't been a problem so far, although people tells me that Scandinavia will bite me anytime soon.
Last but not at least I got my internet connection: 26Mbps!!! which is amazingly fast, it really flies.
