Of course, to some, this might seem warm. Yeah, yeah, I know. I would actually prefer it if my body could tolerate these temperatures. I like being cool more than I like being warm. But the thing is. I'm a stick. I've got no meat on my bones. And I'm not sure if this is genetics or not, but my dad hates the cold, my paternal grandfather hates the cold, my older sister can't stand the cold (she's even worse than I am), so I swear it's like we genetically have a predisposition towards not doing well in cooler temperatures.
70 seems to be the minimum we can get away with.
To be fair.
I'm in a T-shirt and shorts at the moment.
If I put on my warmup jacket and pants, I'd be better.
But I'd still be cold, just...less cold.
I was left a note which says, "Keep the dog covered". (Our dog, a toy fox terrier, is very small with thin fur--his ideal temperature is like a minimum of 74, if not 76; for him to be warm, he needs it to either be 78, or to have a heat source nearby, be it blanket, fire, heater vent, or a lap.)
...That would be easier to do if all our best blankets and sleeping bags weren't gone (presumably, in the wash), leaving me with basically nothing. It would also be easier if he wasn't antsy from all of the utility work going on outside which is very very loud. (Enough to disrupt my sleep. Twice, at minimum.) So he's on my lap, which has a very small sleeping bag on it, but this sleeping bag is too small to cover my whole body--just my thighs.
So right now I'm burning calories just by shivering a lot. Which I am doing. It kinda makes typing hard, since violent tremors from excessive shaking tends to throw off typing technique. (Incidentally, those tremors from shivering are fairly similar to the tremors I show when my body is deprived of something essential--not enough water, not enough carbs, whatever. Both of which are common problems I face.)
