50. Fucking. Degrees.

I got home to my apartment last night to find my indoor temperature at 50 degrees.

It takes a lot for me to say "It's too cold!" I was saying "It's too cold!"

I'm glad to say that yesterday my folks gifted me with a little electric heater that's currently making it warmer, but I need to call the building manager today and say "Whatever you did, it's not working."

(No one to snuggle with to fight the cold, either. Urg. I quote Tori Amos about living in England: "It gets so fucking cold over there, so I found one of them to snuggle with." Smart Tori.)

House cleaning and a library trip will happen today. The active-ness will warmify me.

Errands? Done. Relaxation? Why not?

I walked and bussed into downtown this midday: I returned stuff and got more stuff at the library, bought warm stuff at one coffee shop, and bought a useful piece of plastic at another coffee shop. It's a water jug with a button-push top; I'd bought one recently, and when my dad saw it this weekend he said he'd like one, too, so could I get him one? Done. I found them both at Coffee People, and bought them before that chain fully disappears into Starbucks's maw.

This meant I was outside in light-to-medium rain for awhile (though luckily in one of those coffee shops when it briefly got heavy). Now I stay warm and watch the DVD of Not Another Teen Movie.

Well, the bad news is that the apartment building's heater is flat-out out.

The good news is that my emergency backup heater is working, and that the manager can be over tonight to restart the big main heater.

Oh, and I have chocolate.

Back to the flick after this quick update...

There's truth here.

Your Ideal Relationship is Serious Dating

You're not ready to go walking down the aisle.
But you may be ready in a couple of years.
You prefer to date one on one, with a commitment.
And while chemistry is important, so is compatibility.

Now, some of the next goals: 1) Not being a distracted dumbass about noticing who's out there and interesting and 2) Actually getting out there myself to better find who's interesting! I mean, dude, try going dancing or something...

Edited to Add: And speaking of something that seems to have truth:

You Are 52% Intuitive

Your intuition is often right, and you use it more than you may realize.
Your gut feelings are usually a good guide, but you need more to go on when making a decision.
You'll often check to see if the facts back up your feelings.
And when your intuition is wrong, you work to improve it for the future.
