Wear a sweater!

My heater didn't work for the first semester at Gustavus un Minnesota. I had to start wearing gloves because my hands got too cold when I was using my laptop.

I was just trying to help...

... DM, tried googling the instructions for the heating system? It's probably not going to happen but it's worth a shot.

it's an ancient wall heater. another problem is that at night and during the morning, it's in the 40's. but the afternoon is in the 80's. Also, it is colder in my apt than it is outside..always. I don't know why. Now obviously this is great in the summer ..but fall and winter i'm an ice cube.

Have you tried asking your super about it?

Sounds like your place isnt insulated? Time to invest in a portable oil heater

Use the floorboards for firewood.

she lives in the little shacks by the train station in Davis... I'm sure those places aren't insulated. Get a space heater and drink so much you pass out instead of fall asleep and you won't care about the cold. Also, area rugs.

Being warm is over rated.

Nope, but hides your fear.

Looking on the bright side, at least her arse will be warmer.

when the bright side of life is your own involuntary shit warming your arse, the dark side must be pretty damn dark

No situation is too dark for mindless optimism.

Buy a space heater and an electric blanket. Walmart is your friend when you are on a budget and don't mind that the merchandise is slightly dodgy.

mad monk: i don't think that the super can control the weather ;)

and actually, i'm nice and toasty at night. i've got a comforter and all. it's just the act of getting out of bed.

I intend to get some floor rugs (at least one for the living room) when i get my first paycheck. Kinda excited about that.

Can't use "floor boards" for fire wood as i have tile (which is very beautiful tile, i might add)

Not the weather, the ancient wall heater. ;) He may be able to fix it, replace it, or tell you how to work it properly.

As for that getting out of bed problem...

Get a small space heater, and put a timer on it so it gets up a half hour before you do.

Heh, 40 is a stinking hot day.

Oh, you mean that antiquated system of measuring temperature?
