No heat, so freezerating at the moment. It went out last night (and I couldn't sleep for the cold and finally just took an imbuprophen-ish PM type thing at 3 or 4 and got a couple of hours sleep).
Art the Plumber sidled in, but didn't fix anything, saying to Jess that "it isn't broken in the usual way" or something less than confidence-inspiring like that. We already disdn't have much hot water, so now no heat, very little warm water, and the prospect of a few days of it. /me sets fire to the house. If I stay holed up in the kitchen (which can't be separated really as there are no doors between this and the lower floors) and keep the stove on and keep out of the livingroom (in other words stay off the puter and just read my book), I'll survive (it's making my bug come back, though). It's supposed to warm up tomorrow, I think; today was mid/low 30s.

maybe the heater fairy will bring you one of those (oil?) electric radiator heaters...they are great! quiet, too. you can sit right next to them just like a burn barrel but no smoke.
Those electric oil heaters work great. We have two, one of which heats up my 650sqf studio to about 70 with no problem. I got mine at Target.
