Question 15: What do you eat and what do you wear?

The food here is REALLY good, but the cooks are busy because they need to make 4 meals every day. Because people are working all the time, they make breakfast, lunch, dinner, and "midrats" (midnight rations). This week we've had burgers, jambalaya, salmon, and "breakfast for dinner". Tonight we had steak and tomorrow night we'll have pizza!

As for what we wear, inside we wear jeans and shirt, just like normal people. We get about 40 pounds of extreme cold weather gear for wearing outside: a heavy winter coat, a lighter winter coat, wind pants, long underwear, fleece jacket and pants, two pair of heavy socks, two pair of glove liners, 3-4 different kinds of gloves, a couple of different caps, goggles and really big boots.
 

For my 10 minute walk to and from the station, I usually wear the heavy coat, the wind pants and fleece pants, a hat and gloves, and the heavy socks, all over my regular clothes.

Seeing a photo of your socked foot and denimed shin fires some dormant neurons

Yes, I took that picture in 2007, but my foot hasn't changed much and the boot design hasn't changed at all...
