It's Whineter. I Mean, Winter.

I had one of those clothing dilemmas this morning. If you are female, you know what I'm talking about. It's when your bedroom is organized and everything is picked up and then you can't decide what to wear so your room looks like you were robbed during your shower.

I was set on wearing my new boots. So I put on the sweater dress that's warm. But then the tights I wanted to wear didn't match so I tore through all of them but didn't find the color I wanted. So I had to choose something else to go with the tights I do have. Which ends up being less warm than the sweater dress. Which led to this conversation in the bathroom at work:

Co-Worker: How are you?
Me: I'm good! Just cold.
CW: Well, you're wearing a dress.
Me: But I'm also wearing tights and boots and a scarf.
CW: But you're hardly covered from here to here.
Me: I don't care! I am inside!! It should be warm inside buildings! I shouldn't be subjected to freezing temperatures while I'm working! Besides, winter doesn't mean that you have to dress frumpy!! It doesn't mean that you have to look homeless in layers and layers of things that don't match!!! I had to wear these boots and this was all I could find after destroying both closets in my room!!!!

Okay. I didn't really scream that. I didn't even whisper it. I just sort of shrugged my shoulders shamefully and walked out. I could have said it though. It's all perfectly reasonable.

Winter is not my friend.

I have the opposite problem. When it gets slightly cold here southerners CRANK up the heat so I have to dress like it's still summer inside. I seriously have sweaters I haven't worn once since I moved out here. And not because it doesn't get cold in the winter - it does! Frost this morning! 30 degrees out! But it's sofreakinghot in here.

Of course, I also have about 25 lbs of extra insulation on my body ... that may have something to do with it ....

That is just crazy! I think part of the cold in our building comes from having all the big windows over the river. It's beautiful in the summer, just wish that part would last longer.

And, yeah, my extra fluff isn't helping out in the warmth department.
