Yep, it's that time of year...

There is some kind of problem with the thermostat at work. Mainly, the guy that hooked it up did it wrong. At first, the heater wouldn't work at all, but he fixed that part. But what he still hasn't fixed is that if you turn the heater on, it starts heating...and keeps heating...until you turn it back off. Which means when I first go there in the morning, it is cold...and I have to turn the heater on to warm it up. But I can't leave it on when I leave since it doesn't shut itself down after it reaches a certain temperature...it just keeps on going...like the Energizer Bunny on steroids. But it was 50 F/10 C when I got there this morning, which is too cold to work, so I turned the heater on and came back home for an hour while it starts warming up. Hopefully the guy gets it fixed soon...when it gets to below freezing out I'm not gonna want to go in to turn it on and then come back and wait and go there again later.

That can be frustrating. The baseboard heater in our front hallway was accidently disconnected ten years ago whe an idiot did some renovations (I could write a book). Since the...we keep the door closed in the winter and use it as an extra fridge. This is handy at Christmas.

That sounds like my workspace-cold! The little area that my desk is in is actually not insulated, so we rely on a space heater. And I am always turning that thing down because its either too hot or too cold. Quite often when I turn it off I tell people that I forgot to bring my stick and marshmallows
