Random Friday

Well it seems that my office may become a new wildlife habitat for polar bears, penguins, and other such artic wildlife.

I live in TEXAS people, where it is in the high 60's outside and I am pretty sure my office is just barely breaking into the 40's.


So cold, in fact, that I went out to my car and grabbed my FLEECE jacket so that I wouldn't freeze to death.

If you happen to see or hear of a great exodus of animals from the north and south pole converging in Texas you will know they are all coming to my office. And at that time you should also alert the proper authorities that there is a frozen popsicle of a woman in that same office and they may need to bring heat lamps to dethaw me.

Poor K-T. Do you not have a thermostat that you could adjust? Break out the scarves and mittens! Although mittens are not conducive to typing. Forget the mittens.

oh, and small typo... you life in Texas?

The problem is that my closet, ahem I mean office, shares a thermostat with four other classrooms and they all have windows so they warm up as the day goes on.

My closet, oops I mean office, has no windows and is rather small (closet type small in fact) so there is a battle of wills when it comes to determining a "comfortable" temperature.

But for the common good I will just keep my fleece jacket on when I am in the "ice box". As my wise principal told me, "It is easier for you to put on more clothes then for me to take mine off."

Brrr! I got chills just reading that! Perhaps you need to bring in a space heater, that is what women at my work do.

Oh Eddie, did you know those space heaters such the energy from any outlet. I have one but it blows the circuit breaker everytime I use it and the phone rings.

The jacket helps, but I look like a fool when I walk out of my office.

Like that is a new thing anyway.

DRAMA, KT. DRAMA. You should start wearing a scarf, mittens, and toe-be-gone. maybe they'll get the idea.

or, perhaps you should invest in a space heater. mine keeps my office at a toasty 75 degrees. or, maybe 90. ;)

Yeah, you know, for some odd reason, I just don't feel sorry for you. Can't imagine why... could it BE because I live in the frozen tundra they call, WISCONSIN?! Yeah... that might be why.

Katie, close your damper.

The cold is coming out of that vent. As a wise man once said, "It aint rocket surgery."

Sorry for being snide. You just made it so easy.

I know that feeling. I didn't realize Texans had issues with cold too!

My sympathy - I hope it gets better.

Know what? I design HVAC systems for buildings. We run into this problem all the time. Ideally we could design a system where everyone had control over their own space, but that costs a bunch of money to buy/ we end up making concessions with the building owner so that we can give the occupants as much control as possible and still keep the project in budget. It's not an easy mix. However, to put a closet office with no windows on the same thermostat as four other classrooms with windows...that's not real smart design.

Sorry 'bout the boring comment, my type 'A' engineering side took over for a bit. (I am at work!)
