Baby It's Cccccold in here!

It's freaking cold in my office! I freeze in the summer because they crank up the AC and I freeze in the winter because they don't crank up the heat. My fingers and toes are frozen. Help me! I need warmth and I need it now!

If'd ro hsrd to tupe werwing rthi,mbles. *poiut*

*snort* As long as it's full of a nice hot pizza and no special sauce.

That would be a definite improvement Momma. It's about -25 with the wind chill today (-13F for those south of the border). I swear the wind is blowing right through my window.

I just went to the ladies room and ran my hands under the luke warm water that comes out of the hot tap. They're so cheap here they don't even turn the water heater up for cryin out loud!

They do the same thing here in my office. Although the extremes of your cold don't apply here. But it sucks to have to wear a long sleeve shirt to work in the middle of summer in California.

*snuggles up with Carey* Much better!

I have the same problem in the summer. Have to wear socks and running shoes because with sandals my feet freeze. There's always a sweater or two in my office in case I forget to wear one.

I wear a turtleneck and sweatshirt to work almost every day during the winter. Most days I wear two pair of socks too. It's a two pair of sock day today but I only wore one because we're going shopping after work and I didn't want to be too hot in the mall.

I think I'll buy another turtleneck tonight, and maybe more socks.

Also, you could borrow your brother's lovely hat and just wear it as statement.

Consider fingerless gloves.

What would Mean Jean do if you plugged in a small heater under your desk?

LOL Swami! I wonder if that would give anyone a hint that it's too fucking cold in here.

Didn't I tell you about the space heater fiasco already?

Poor you! I used to keep a space heater under my desk because the reception area was right near the door and a little draft would always sneak across the floor. I also kept a sweater there all the time. My boss always wore suits, so he'd get hot in the summer. He'd go from his air-conditioned car to the air-conditioned office and barely feel the heat. I'd wear something appropriate for the weather and freeze to death.

This reminds me to call my boss about getting our T4's from head office so we can file our taxes. They forgot every year. They'll probably forget even more completely now that we don't work for them anymore.

Ahhhhhh! Relief. Mean Jean's gone and I can finally plug in the space heater under my desk. I'm sure it will be quitting time before my feet thaw out. I can't plug it in while she's here because she's such a friggin tightwad about using electricity. How would she know you ask? Well because if I have it plugged in and she runs her printer or the vaccum cleaner, the breaker flips and then she flips.

Just before Christmas I almost got busted when she tried to vaccum something in her office. As soon as I saw the lights go out in the main office I unplugged the heater and put it up against the wall, willing it to cool off before Jean came and touched it to see if it had been used. I got shit for it once and if she catches me again, she'd take it away just like the radios. But that's another story.

Weltek? What'd you have for lunch before you start blowing all that hot air in my direction? *grin*

Candle. That's a good idea but they probably wouldn't be allowed here either. *sigh*

Pfft! Oh yeah, lightsy, it's your space heater. *rolls eyes*

It couldn't be that maybe the friggin wiring in the building needs updating or anything. *rolls eyes* again.

Here! I found these hand warmers in Nutzboy's scout backpack! ...and tomorrow? he's going to a cold weather camping certification class at Valley Forge, so if he has any good tips for you, I'll let you know!

LOL at the pizza box. I will never look at a pizza box the same again.

Now you have something to look forward to in menopause: hot flashes in the winter time.
