how do i KNOW, you ask?

*points to her screen and shrieks like a howler monkey* because it SAYS SO right there on my weather pixie!

fourty-six freaking degrees.

and there's no heat on in here.

i'm wearing two layers of clothing, and i can't stop shivering like mad. mom said that in the 'dead of winter', that sometimes we're LUCKY to hit 46 degrees. the high we had yesterday, 56, was what I was used to in the dead of winter. at night. if it were raining.

and i.. i have to go out... in THAT *waves hand emphatically*.. that FOG! i could get lost! what if there's a MONSTER behind a tree? phoenix doesn't have this.. this.. FOG you speak of! i remember even the first time ever driving in fog, coming back from a sandy eggo trip, where i freaked out and almost pulled to the side of the road and waited for it to pass.

i have to go out in THAT and sit for who knows how long and wait for a bus. i think my heart will stop.

and freaking BITE me if you think i'm BATHING in this cold. i'll go to work and sweat and toil over freight anyhow, so what will a litlte shower matter?

my mommy says that she will see about possibly moving the stuff away from the heater so that she can maybe run it tonight.

i told her last night when i crawled into bed that i could tell the weather was turning, because no matter how long i laid there, the air in my air mattress was STILL cold.

i'm so cold that i even debated (for a second or two) going to work without a bra, so that i wouldn't have to take my shirt off. it would be covered by an apron anyway, and how much can you really TELL with a tshirt covered by a baggy sweater?!? but what if i get hot (michaels likes to regulate their temperature, unlike SOME places.. like home perhaps?), and need to take off the sweater?!? bouncy babies, is what. boingy boingy. my breasts would sway in the breeze. and not even in unison.

so i guess i shall go change my pants, toss on a bra (with my ice cold fingers *shudder*), and comb my hair back into some semblance of a bun and go. try not to think about it. cold is a figment of your imagination, aubrey.

Advice: put your clothes in bed with you while you lay there in the morning, so you can warm them up before you have to put them on. And try putting a thermal blanket between the floor and the air mattress, and another one under your sheet on top of the mattress. And you won't get warm with a hot shower because it makes the blood rush to the surface of your skin and your core won't get warm.

And I'm reading all this with no shirt on, and we left the window open last night. :D

i actually followed that advice until i moved out.

now, i just keep my heater on a zillion degrees 24/7, so that if i get cold elsewhere (my roomie doesn't want the heat on at all), i can run in there and thaw out ;)

I'm still amused over the "boingy, boingy" comment.

That just made me laugh.

reading it months later, it cracked me up, too ;)

i slay me.

Should I rub it in that we're starting to have highs of 85-90? :)

The lows, however, are getting pretty cool @ ~ 60.

egads - and sitting in all this snow now? *dies*

Hee hee, I'll be nice and won't point out that highs in winter here are generally 0-20 degrees Farenheit.
Oh wait, I just did. Oh well. ;)

hee hee - i remember living in st. paul, mn, where the high was below zero, not including the loverly wind chill factor ;)

ooh, i HATE those times of the year, where it's like playing a game of redlight/greenlight with the seasons "it's summer, no wait, it's autumn! summer! WINTER! summer! autumn!"

no wonder everyone keeps getting sick that time of the year ;)

The weather's been really freaky here in Ohio (wait, that's redundant. Ohio is synonomous with weird weather :) ). Last week it was in the lower 50s and this week it's been in the mid-70s. Go figure. (Hang in there. It will end. I promise. Just not until April. :)

and now we're stuck in the middle of Soggy Hell.

and it HAS frozen over.

God I like your sense of humor... if you have any animals, or a bf/gf to invite over... body heat is good for warmth too.... or put some towles in the dryer before bed, then go to sleep on top of them... its temporary, but at least good enough to get you to sleep.... also pull the covers over your head, so you breath under cover, it will stay warm that way too.

yeah, one of the bad things about not being with someone in a relationship!

back at the time, i was sleeping on the living room floor, my mother sleeping approximately 3 feet from me on the couch, so bringing someone to share my bed with (no matter how innocently), wasn't exactly an option ;)

but now i'm in a townhome, where i can at least have a say in the heat. i keep the one on my room on full blast, practically, all the time - my roommate isn't one for running heat much, either, so i run upstairs for a bit now and then to thaw out ;)

So I didn't reply this morning cause I was in a hurry to get to work, but I couldn't help but smile when I read this. Not because of the freezing you suffer, but because you describe in such an animated way.

Cold sucks, move back to the desert :)

hee hee - i wish to get more animated with my posts again soonly - i keep feeling like i'm basically just drooling out my posts for the sake of posting SOMETHING.

I need to work on my creativity bone.
