Eww. 75 is disgusting! I guess if you're sick, you may need it a little warmer to compensate, but other than that I still say the temperature outside doesn't matter one iota. If you're inside, you're inside. As for drafts, why not do something about them rather than raising the thermostat? I duct tape all my window shut during the winter. I also just happened to have put on some weather stripping to the back door because a lot of heat was getting out in the small gap between the door and the floor. I'm the least handy person ever. This stuff is easy.

The problem is, my apartment is brand new, I'm the first resident in the apartment and there are absolutely no drafts in either outside door.  Plus, I'm next to the building's laundry room so its even warmer than usual.  I haven't had to have my heat on a whole lot this fall/winter, yet, but the past few days I have been.  The thing about my heater is its perfectly quiet.  You only know its working because the temperature in the room gets warmer.  The coils under the floor heat up and allow the heat to rise in the room, pushing the cold air to the ceiling.  My heater makes absolutely no noise, whatsoever.
Nothing you said is a problem. A new apartment sounds lovely. And a quiet heater is great. Why would you want a demon furnace? A few years back BRTD mentioned that the heat in his old dumpy building couldn't keep up with the Minnesota cold. That is a problem.

Well a fixed one. I have no problem with the heat right now, and it's 15F outside.

I still don't understand why a thermostat would need to be set to a hgher temp just because it's colder outside. We all have an ideal temp, perhaps influenced by a desire to keep heating costs low, but a temp we are shooting for nonetheless. Why does the outside temp matter at all? I don't make my house any cooler on a 95 degree day than I do on an 85 defree day.the machine may have to work harder but I don't have to do anything.

It depends, if you have a larger house or a ah less than ideal HVAC system certain parts of the house will get cooler or warmer than others. If you have drafts, you may also need to turn up further on windy days.

Yeah, if for some reason the thermostat wasn't representative of the whole house, you'd have to, but I doubt that's the case with Bushie's reasoning.

The temp is relative, sometimes you can feel colder then you normally would at a certain temperate just because. If you're sick or just wearing more or less cold you might want to set the temp at a different setting to accomodate for it.

Exactly, If I'm cold, I don't care about my bill, I'll turn the heat up.  Subsequently in the summer, if I'm hot, I'll turn the a/c down regardless of the bill.

You've already adequately demonstrated that you can't handle money.

70 degrees is a treat. I only leave mine that high when I have a party or special guests. Normally my thermostat is at 62 degrees, and it's lower when I'm sleeping or out of the house.

Seasons 1 and 2 are almost as great of a gift as the Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job Chrimbus Special DVD!

Remember the pregnancy scare? The sip of wine that caused him to sleep it off for 14 hours? Ameriscam? The vacuums? His diet that wasn't real? The cat scratching him that led to an emotional breakdown? The Kenyan children adoption argument? The multiple engagements? His first time?

One of my favs was when he kept talked about the Rainbow Play Systems, and was lying to everyone on facebook about how his company is going to build playgrounds, even though he told us it was vacuums. Oh man, that was amazing!

Wow guys, thanks for reminding me of all the great episodes from the past! Though it really does drive home how much these latest seasons have decline in quality.

I slipped up on my New Year's diet this evening (so what's new, right?)  I went to Iggy's Sports Grill in West Jordan, Utah for dinner and just had a hamburger with no fries.  Not too bad on its own.  However, I satisfied one of my cravings.  Mind you, it is 9 degrees outside with a WCI below zero.  I indulged in a ROOT BEER FLOAT!!  I was going to go to Walmart on my way home from dinner and get some groceries, but for some reason, I was shivering up a storm on my way out to the car from the restaurant.  I can't figure out why. Tongue  I decided I'd better come home and thaw out and attempt the Walmart run in the morning!  This is one of the rare instances that the ice cream was warmer than the air outside!

I've got a good head for trivia and stories. Which is why I was a history major. But even I can't keep up with all the jobs (and I use the term very loosely) he's had. OK Gas company. On company. Kirby vacuums. Rainbow vacuums. Ameriscam. Sprint. Dell. Xerox. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few. Whatever happened to the reverand [sic] subplot? Was he ever preaching the gospel. Or <shudders> giving people advice about their personal situations. So many loose ends. A modest home with a mortgage in OK. Expenses greatly in excess of income. I've had the same steady job for six years now and I live damn frugally just to get by and squirrel away a small bit away each month in case of an unexpected expense, which, of course, hits me every month or two. Gonna need new tires soon. That's gonna be an Inks, but that's why I try so hard to save money whenever possible! No regular meals out, local hotel stays, church membership/tithing, or children, adoptive or otherwise for this very steadily employed cowboy. And I would LOVE to hear more about the calendar rituals. I'm not completely up on the details of those. I do wish the best for Bushie, and I slightly regret that this post is so ugly and judgmental. But I have a very nosey side with a tendancy to know when I'm being served a load of bull. But I can suspend disbelief as well as the next guy. I like a good novel and a good tv show. I'm fairly willing to overlook plot holes so long as the word fiction is printed on the label. Or maybe the jokes on us for not getting what has been so obvious all along. Somewhere out there, there is an art benefactor who would pony up big bucks for this post-postmodern anti-masterpiece. In 100 years, this might just be required reading for all school children. The lessons are quite nicely layered and instructive. It's hard to say what the literary world will latch on to. Shakespeare wasn't considered high art in his day either.

Its been a pretty good day so far.  I woke up this morning around 8:45 and went to Walmart at 9:30 to get some groceries.  I got home about 10:45 and have been doing laundry and some cleaning ever
since.

I did start a diet on Tuesday and have been weighing myself every day.  I'm not losing real fast, and what I have lost is water weight, but I'm not gorging myself on food.  I cheated last night and went to Iggy's Sports Grill over in West Jordan.  That didn't cause me to gain any weight as I hadn't had anything really up until that point.  I started the diet at 267.0 and am down to 266.4.  Clearly water weight, but I'm not looking to lose real fast.  That 267, though, did intrigue me because the last time I weighed just after Christmas, I was up at 270.  I'm curious as to how those 3 points went off.  It's probably water weight, because I don't recall doing anything to cause me to lose 3 pounds.  I do have a goal of being down to 260 by the end of January.  I'm not going to set big goals right now, I just want to lose a little bit so I can start feeling better and then I'll go for the big goals after I get down just a bit.  While I'm not setting a big goal right now, I do have a small goal (more like a step) of 250 by the time I go to Kenya in March (if I'm able to go, that is).

BREAKING NEWS:  The Mission Trip to Kenya in March 2013 has been postponed due to the Kenyan Presidential Election that is scheduled to happen in March.  The team coordinator, who is a native of Kisumu, was not comfortable taking 15 Americans to the country with an unstable political climate.  As you might know the National Elections were postponed from late last year.  She is too wary of the political unrest and possibly retaliation on foreigners, especially Americans.  The group that is in Oklahoma is going to meet next Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 4:00 pm CST to discuss a future date.  No word if that will be in the summer or the fall and too early to tell if this will impact the March 2014 trip.  That's actually a relief to me so I can stay at work for a while longer before taking off for another week to go to Kenya.  My supervisor already knows about my vested interest in Kenya, but having just taken off a week in November and a week in December, I really didn't want to take off another week in March.  Personally, I hope the trip is postponed until at least June, and even more preferable beyond that, maybe August.  If I do go later this year, that will likely hinder or shorten my trip back to Oklahoma this next Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It's time you met a nice lady, Bushie. I remember when breaking news stories involved Tiffanye postponing returning the ring or Susan revealing she had a boyfriend in the past. Or that as of X time, you were no longer a virgin.

I'm not really interested in women right now.  If one comes along, I'm certainly not going to shy away from it, but I'm not going to go out and seek one.

I think a coming out of the closet story would be great! There's hasn't been any sincerity in the update since.......ever, I guess. It would make him feel more like a real person. Character development is so critical.

"Weighing myself everyday" yet again igoring what EVERY expert on weight loss will tell you ... stop, let me repeat for effect, STOP weighing yourself so frequently. It's a guaranteed way to screw yourself over. If you don't have the self-discipline to say I'm going to keep on track and only weigh myself once a week ... then you've got NO chance of succeeding long-term.

Have you not read Inks advice?  Is your advice somehow more credible than Inks?  One style does NOT fit all.  I will weigh myself everyday mainly because I HAVE to know how I am doing EVERY single day.  I go crazy otherwise and am even more prone to misjudge how I'm doing.

And it's really ok as long as you understand that it just like the polling from before the election. There is a "margin of error" so to speak because of regular fluctuations. Don't get too encouraged by PPP because Rasmussen is coming up next. You need a long term regression. Imagine this thing that I stole from wikipedia only with a negative slope.
