uh, we’re going to have to do something about this…

Well. I hadn’t expected this to happen…

For most of the year, I slept away from the window. I preferred to have it open, but ultimately it was my roommate’s decision because he was nearer the window. Thw window stayed shot a lot, then. It was open sometimes because for soem reason, this room has never needed heating, even in the middle of winter. And it would actually get uncomfortably warm.

That wasn’t helped by the fact that around that point in history, we always had at least 3 people in this room designed for two. On several occasions, we had 7.

About three weeks ago, we rearranged the room so that my bed was immediately in front of the window, all my stuff was on the window side, and basically I had control of the window. Since then, the window’s been more-or-less continuously open.

This is because for me, there is no more comfortable feeling than to be curled up in a blanket in a room whose air temperature is between 40 and 60 degrees farenheit. Also, I like cold rooms in general. They help keep me alert.

However, apparantly I’ve become excessive. My roommate today registered a complaint about the air temperature. This is unusual on two counts: he almost never complains to anyone he has a complaint with (though he may complain to someone he considers a closer friend), and also because I have seen this man walk through snowfall to class wearing no more protection than a tshirt and slacks, without apparant discomfort.

So when he says he was kept awake shivering, it probably means something…

Now, our backgrounds may have something to do with this. I come from New Hampshire, and so brought with me two very warm blankets. He comes from somewhere in the south, and brought two light sheets. Still…

I don’t know. I’ve left the window closed all day as a measure of conciliation; I’ll probably open it again when I sleep. Since that’s not likely to be before midnight, I should be fine.

If not, at least I’ll have something to write about tomorrow…
