"Your biting sarcasm wounds me, Madam..."

Yeah, we're talking about the weather. Stimulating, no?

Can i just say that it's too late into spring for me to be freezing at night?

It's MAY. MAY 21st!

I let the heating oil run out this month because i was (really / mostly / almost) positive that heat wasn't going to be necessary until September. It's May! MAY. No more with the cold! Yay!

But no. Last night was something like 40 degrees and it was about 55 in the house. No heat. Socks and flannel pajamas under the down comforter and a very awkward time this morning trying to get in and out of the shower without actually being NAKED for more than 20 seconds. I thought i was done with this.

Obviously, this was a really stupid move on my part, but my excuse (and it's a good one) is that heating oil is just so expensive right now, i thought i was being financially WISE to wait until the price went down (as if that's going to happen) and deal with the consequences in the meantime. Unfortunately, i was too stupid to realize that there would be nights in May where you could see your breath.

I never, ever thought i would be impatiently waiting for summer - because i hate the heat - but today? I'm sick of wearing turtlenecks and sweaters to work. In May. It just doesn't make sense.
