Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I have to admit, I am one of the ones who likes the temperature freakishly cold. If my room is warmer than 65 degrees I can't sleep. We keep the apartment at 68-70, and I keep my bedroom window open, even throughout winter. I figure, we save money, and if you're cold you can always put on a sweater or a blanket, or take a hot shower. When you're too hot there's not much you can do about it.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I keep it about 66 degrees in my house during the winter. It's usually enough for me.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

As of right now I have 15 C in the bathroom, 21 C in the living room and 11 C in the bedroom. I only heat the living room and there's a window open in the bedroom to the -4 C outside.

That's a bit chilly in the living room, but I probably should put on some socks and a shirt...

Depends on the night here. Usually we have the thermostat set at 67 during the day and down to 65 at night.

Yeah we keep our house at 21 during the day, and everyone else is wandering around in shorts and a t-shirt while I'm wearing two fleeces!

(sorry, don't have any confessions )

That sounds just like me.

My comfort zone is in the low 60s. My girlfriend likes to keep her bedroom in the high 70s and still sleeps under thick blankets.

When we're together, we compromise and set the thermostat around 70.

My husband is very "careful" with the heating of the house. When he's away overnight for work I put it all on full blast. It's just awesome to have a beautifully warm house for a change. Also, he wants to eat healthily so bans the "bad stuff" from the house. I still buy all that stuff but I leave it at work.
I tend to keep my heat at a lower level (65), but when my girlfriend is over, I do turn it up. Everybody has different tolerances, and what is just fine for me has her with hands and feet like ice bergs.

Wow. Did he mention his other wife in Michigan he does the same thing to?

My hubs keeps the house at 62. I know he's coming down with a cold when he turns it up to 66 or 68! The refrigerator at home is full of green things! The fridge at work s full of yummy stuff!

It seems to have rubbed off onto son, he keeps his at 55. He's also flirting with vegetarianism. He could follow the example of far worse!

We can seldom get i below 70 in our place. We're at the top so a lot fthe excess heat from below just funnels up to our place. Which is nice in winter but a bitch in summer.

I usually like it pretty cold in my bedroom as well, if it's to warm I just can't sleep. Also haven't used a normal cover in years. Usually just go with two empty covers in winter and one in summer.

And the thing to do when you're too hot is obviously to knowledge it and own it.

That is something I have no tolerance for any more, when one's partner goes on some crusade and expects everyone to follow or even just makes comments if you're doing that unhealthy thing they are now above doing. I'm like a rebellious teenager when faced with that shit.

The temperature is always what I want it to be. Now that I'm on my own, I almost always have the heater off and the window open. It's chilly, but both I and the cat are happy.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I have a brand new confession:

Sometimes I'll be alone in my room and find a half-melted bit of chocolate stuck to my arm from, like, an hour ago. And I'll lick it off.

^ What's wrong with that? It's stuck to your own personal self, after all. You know where you've been...
