It is not as though the weather has been unseasonably cold of late. Sure I could've use a few more degrees on the long weekend (and I'm not talking about post-graduate degrees) but it hasn't been terrible. What's worst is that my apartment is 15 degrees! The heat was turned off probably a few weeks ago when the weather was warm and global warming told everyone that it would never drop below 20 degrees again. Well, global warming isn't as easy to predict as that. Did you know that the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety says that minimum workplace temperatures in Ontario should be 18 degrees? My place leaves my nose cold and a need for at least a fleece. I must admit, I'm looking forward to the warm weather. I'm sure I'll still break CCOHS rules, but at least I won't be freezing. Think of me while you sit in your comfortable work/play environment. :P

UPDATE: On the good news side of my whinging, I am inadvertantly helping do my part in the David Suzuki Foundation Nature Challenge by shivering at home. Try it yourself... the Nature Challenge, not the shivering (unless you're into that sort of thing).

I miss working at QUIC (notice my very good use of acronym), but I have to admit I don't miss that! Home in Burlington is sufficiently heated, and for the first summer in years, I'm the proud beneficiary of air conditioning!

Remember that time my furnace broke and you were insensitive to my shivering?

Yah, I won't respond the same way. I hope you warm up soon
