Reading about setting the temperature at 68 or 70 is making me cringe. I can't imagine dealing with that and my arthritis. Eek.

I always have a warm blanket upstairs, but I draw the line at needing gloves. How do you do things wearing gloves?

My mom would like it there probably, but luckily we can't because our tropical birds would suffer and it could impair their health. Cold birds manage to look so miserable that they veer towards looking like a characature of looking miserable.

My GED classroom is very hard to handle. They do not turn the air off until the end of Octoboer, so it is about 65 in there. I have fingerless gloves a d extra sweaters, but my back is in bad shape by the end of the 3 hours. I've had students quit because they can't deal with it (and probably wanted a reason to justify quitting).

My classroom at school is usually around 92. We have the official weather station that reports to the NWS in there, so we know the inside and outside temperatures to the thousandths place. When it isn't 92, it usually drops to 58. No joke. Usually its at 92 though, so we open the windows. The classrooms opposite are usually around 65. The building is very badly designed. The core building is normal, but all the wings are crazy.

my mother and I like it cold- heat off, period. thermostat is set to 55 or something. growing up, all i heard was "put on another sweater!" it trained me well though as i've managed to only live in two places (of 10? 12?) with central heating and we get wicked cold. today, we use hot water bottles, we wear hats, we drink lots of tea.....
meantime my sister has raynaud's disease and can't get cold. so my mother suffers through the 77F thermostat, or hwatever it is set at.

It's funny how people have such different cold tolerances. I'm really surprised at how much mine has changed just from living in Florida for two years. Our summer temp now is 77-78, but I used to be sweating like crazy at 72, and now I'm pretty chilly there. Not that Tennessee gets COLD cold, but we have a mild winter.

I'm always freezing and I sleep with a heating pad on (totally not safe).

You know that scene in Dumb & Dumber where Jim Carrey walks out the petrol station shop and says to those guys "Hey guys, oh big gulps huh?" then they just look at him and he walks off...?

Well last night my mum came in from work and literally all I had done was chop a clove of garlic, there was nothing else out. She goes "ooooh GARLIC huh?" It was so dumb, I just looked at her and then she walked off to feed the cat or something. It just reminded me of that bit in D&D and I am still giggling about it.

The Heating Wars are going to begin soon in my apartment. Like Torque, I'm from the "put a sweater on!" school, but my boyfriend believes that in the middle of winter, he should be able to sit around here without a shirt on. I can't tell you how many times I've come home to find the heat jacked to 85 degrees. He also loves to run the heat with all the windows open because he likes the effect of toasty and cold together. I like it too, but it's something I reserve for my car. Why don't we just empty our bank accounts and dump all the money out the window? I can't even wrap my head around it.

My boyfriend and I have started frequently sleeping in separate rooms (me on the couch, him in the bedroom) because I am always freezing to death/need heating/ALL the blankets. It's not as dysfunctional as it sounds...it has actually negated some frequent arguments.

Well I will wear a hoodie that has pockets and usually fingerless gloves so I can put my hands in my pocket or even curl them under into the gloves. Also if I'm sitting down, I usually have a blanket on me as well so I'm pretty bundled up.

I grew up in California and we never had central heat, we had a wall heater in the living room that we never used but where we lived it never got too cold. I don't like breathing in hot air so I avoid the heater as much as possible but living here, it is unavoidable.

It's raining and I have an appointment with a good friend I haven't seen in ages and to meet her I'd have to bike 30 minutes in the forking rain. I am too old for this. But I don't want to cancel with her because she has a baby and I wouldn't be able to see her again anytime soon so uffff. I could take the subway but I don't have an umbrella so I'd get wet anyway. FWP.

Ohhh heat. We don't control the heat in our apartment and it hasn't come on for the season yet, so I've been feeling a bit chilly. We are on the ground floor and apparently the people upstairs find it much warmer up there than we do, so on really cold days it's chilly in here even when the heat is on. Those are the days I like to bake stuff in the oven, which heats the whole apartment up because our place is so freaking small.

reason i'm glad i'm vegan #9,457: i never, ever thought about the ingredients of things like shampoo or moisturizer before i went vegan, and i didn't look at labels or read up on ingredient sourcing or whatever. but now that i do, sometimes i think about what i might have wound up smearing all over my face, or what i might have already patted all around my eyes and mouth, and i get some serious skin crawlies. for example, here is the title of a french patent that's included in the reference list of an article i'm editing:

"Use in Cosmetology of Extracts of Mucus of or Digestive Juice of Gastropods and Preparation of These Extracts"

SLUG JUICE, PEOPLE. slug juice to make you beautiful. so much eeewwwwwww.

If we had a "your amazing moment of the day" thread I'd post this in it:

Female co-worker said to me that it's strange that our female financial controller is also head of the ICT department....cause computer stuff is technical and that's a man thing and it's typical that man share technical knowledge together and not so much with woman....

So I had to tell her that's sexist and that if you're smart enough to be FCO, you're probably also smart enough to make decisions about ICT based on the input or information you get from others.

It was amazing in a bad way.

I work for a largish corporation and the had of our IT for the entire company is a woman. It is actually funny, my management structure goes male->female->female->female (head of all IT for the company)->male (head of company). I work in IT so the 3 females above me are all part of controlling some aspect of IT.

One of my friends keeps posting statuses on face book that sound incredibly rude even though she's not meaning them like that, and I don't think even realises the latest one makes it look like she was having a wank this morning and someone walked in on her! I'm having to really restrain myself, as I don't know how many elderly relatives she's FB friends with and I don't want to cause offence to people. Biting... my... fingers. So... hard! Gnnng!!

I don't know why I decided to spend my day watching the presidential debates I missed.

My brain is aching and I am angry. Bah.

At some point, I purged a lot of my mp3s. I went looking for some of my CDs but mine are mixed with my husband. It is a wonder we ever got together, there is absolutely no commonality in our music tastes even within the genres we agree upon.
