This is Florida, not the Arctic!
I'm pretty cranky right now. Last night it dipped down in the 40s/30s, and once again our heater never seemed to kick in and get it any warmer in this place.
I already have two blankets and a quilt on my bed, and I also slept in sweatpants and socks. It's a good thing I did, because when I woke up my clock thermometer read 66 degrees in my room, with the house temp reading 69 degrees.
Tonight it's even worse: we are going to break a previous record of 28 degrees, and with the breeze picked up it's likely to feel even colder. The weatherman was even mentioning the dangers of frostbite if people stay out too long in the wind.
Seriously, this is torture for me. I HATE the cold O_O
Besides that, my parents got back from their trip tonight, bearing a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card for me from another aunt and uncle. Once the weather warms up this weekend, I plan to do some serious shopping. I still have most of the $100 dad gave me before they left, and I plan to use that to catch up on the anime I'm behind on. And with a total of $35 in bookstore gift cards, I think I'll splurge on a nice hardcover, something from the science or history section because I want to really expand beyond all the fiction I usually read.
I just hope I don't end up a block of ice tonight ><'
