My dutch flatmate made the comment that it's not that NZ is cold, it's that our housing sucks.
So while it may be colder in somewhere like Norway, they have nice incelated (yes I know I spelt that wrong) housing for example and double glazing widows. We don't have any of that here.
My room for example has a big window on the wall that boarders that outside of the house. That window glass is thin and the curtains suck.
So when it's like 5 degrees outside, it's 5 degrees inside too...

Can you at least get thermal curtains there? The thick insulating kind? Made a big difference for me this past winter (well, a big difference during our one brief -35 cold snap; other than that things were fine already).

I'm always amazed at how poorly insulated some housing is in the northeastern US, when I visit. New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio... they get long stretches of subzero weather (basically just as much as southern Ontario!), why aren't homes built for it?

RE: Ranting corner
So the other day I went inside of a gas station to buy whatever, and the cashier lady working the counter looks at me and says the rudest thing ever. I had my hair pulled back into a bun and I was rockin' a sort of t-shirt lazy day, and this lady looks at my gauged ears (they're not even remotely large holes) and calls me padlock.

Padlock.

PADLOCK.

RE: Ranting corner
So, umm...

Ranting initaited in five...four...three...two...one..

Why does love have to be so damn difficult. Next thing you know, I am hanging out with my girlfriend and we are watching some movies, and the next moment she's like:

"Hey, I have a razor, do you want me to shave your chest hair?"

What the hell does that even mean?

It means you picked the wrong movie and she was bored.

Okay, here's what it means..."how much can I talk you into?"

After the makeup thing, I am betting she figures why not go for broke.
