I hate winter.

It's cold. Seriously. The temperature hit all of 24 today. And I have no control over the heat in my apartment. And I hate wearing sweaters - and really, heavy clothes of any sort. It's paining me right now that I'm wearing socks. If I had control, I'd pay a lot of money to blast warm air in my general direction. But I don't. And the radiators are warm, but not... radiating. I have a pashmina and a blanket around me, but... I'm still cold. Usually I love the old building that I live in... but this central heating thing... is not good.

Well... at least I'm not studying for finals right now.

24? That's weak. It was -13 Monday morning when I went out to the train. But I agree with the general sentiment. Also, what's a pashmina?

I hate the cold too! It is 25 here right now. NOTHING is fun to me when it's cold. I hate runny noses and pink cheeks!

Lee said...

It was so cold this morning, my eyelids froze open. I looked like a surprised Liza Minelli.

Get warm soon, petal!

anne said...

i had to sleep in socks last night. i hate that!

Liz said...

Last night I slept in socks, sweatpants, a long-sleeved t-shirt and a sweatshirt... and I had to tape plastic wrap over my air conditioning unit because it causes a draft... Long story short, my heat sucks too!

The worst part is the temp is 24 but with the windchill it is even colder. Ick. Might I suggest a lovely space heater? Perfect for the apartment dweller and a bargain for only $29.95!

Actually, I don't know how much a good space heater is.

TOWM - A pash is a really fancy way of saying "expensive pretty shawl."

Deana - You're right. Even Fun is not fun when it's cold.

Lee - More people should call me petal. I like it!

RickB - haha, 24F is 8 degress below freezing! Yuck!

Sarah - I kind of hate your right now.

Jsto - hahaha!

Anne - I was sitting at my desk with my space heater, but I blew out my power strip. Now I'm sitting at my desk just being cold.

Markus and Liz - Ewww. I hate sleeping in all those clothes!

E-liz... you crack me up.

I must be a voice crying out in the wilderness... I love winter. Walking over to the bank today, a snowflake landed on the tip of my nose and I smiled. Nothing is better than laying by the fireplace, sipping scotch, listening to music, and watching it snow outside (unless it's skiing)!

mar-see-ah, you so get absolutely no sympathy. The high here was 17 yesterday. The HIGH! And I don't have control over the heat in my apartment, plus there is a freaking huge gap in my back door (you can look through and see outside. It is sad) that leads to huge amounts of draft wandering through my house. It is usually so freaking cold - which makes me NOT want to get out of bed ... EVER!

I live in Minnesota. Suck it up, sweetie, no sympathy from me. =)
