I don't even own a proper jacket (my Big Black Jacket finally died, with multiple giant holes and a broken zipper)! I own TWO LONG-SLEEVED SHIRTS, TWO PAIRS OF PANTS, and a bunch of capri/cropped pants and t-shirts. NO MATTER HOW MANY LAYERS I WEAR MY ARMS ARE GOING TO FREEZE AND FALL OFF.
Thank god for armsocks (well. Toe socks with the tips of the toes cut off = instant armsocks yay). Which I will also be wearing. And gloves. I got delightful gloves last Christmas (they are awesome; they have hand-bones on them and I wuv them). And at least I have tennis shoes instead of just sandals this year. I hate shopping beyond all reason, but I did purchase a pair of pants that are long enough for me (overshot the mark; they're actually TOO long, which is an awesome and unusual feeling).
My fingers are always the first to get painfully cold; I have shitty circulation to my fingers (my feet are usually fine, but fingers? Those suckers get NO warmth, I swear) and even in cool rooms they start to get really cold. Once the temperature drops below 65 or so they start to ache and stiffen. Which means typing is difficult, because the room with my computer gets and stays very, very cold during the winter. Our heating system means well, but it's just not used to winter, so it dumps all the warm air up in Emma's room, causing her to turn the heat down because she is sweating in shorts, which means this room becomes a freezer.
Oh, and I have an exam tonight at 7 PM. Which means driving around in the FROZEN DARK. Again, HOUSTON NATIVE. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THIS FROZEN WATER YOU KEEP REFERRING TO AS "ICE", DESPITE IT'S OBVIOUS LACK OF CUBE FORM.
