what's a girl to do?

We finally have heat in our apartment, much to the joy of my cold toes. There was a time period when it was cold outside and the building's heat hadn't kicked in. All 3 apartments' tenants must have called and complained, because there were numerous people about fixing things. I came home one day and it was warm inside. That was good. But apparently we are the only apartment with heat, so that sucks for the people below us. I think they hold a secret resentment towards us.

However, the heater that goes all the way around the apartment does *not* go into the bathroom. This becomes painfully evident at night when a girl ventures into the bathroom to pee and everything freezes. Ev-er-y-thing. So what can I do? Stop drinking water and tea and hot chocolate and coffee so that I don't have to go in to the cold cold bathroom anymore? That won't work and you know it. Bundle up beforehand so I'm totally hot in the apartment? Then I'll be uncomfortable.

Ah, the dilemmas of life.

space heater = good idea.
catheter = bad idea.

bed pan?

That would save the coldness, but I think it might take extra effort.

Chilly toilet seats are the worst.

the whole bathroom is like 30 degrees colder than the rest of the house.

oh no. You're probably like me having to pee at least twice in the middle of the night aren't you? Oh man I feel bad for you dear.

It makes me a little unhappy.

I have a tiny ceramic space heater in the bathroom. It is just perfect to stand in front of and dry off in the morning.

I have a tiny space heater that I bought for my office job, but *someone* is hogging it at his desk. I think I'll steal it back.

We have no heat in our bathroom. We got a space heater that mounts on the wall from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. it makes a big difference. And forget the chilly toilet seats - it's taking a shower in an unheated bathroom that'll kill ya.

That's why I take very hot showers.

I HATE cold bathrooms....
Can you spell SPACEHEATER???
They have those really neat ones that look like old hot water registers. You could even toss your towel over it while in the shower so your towel is nice and toasty when you get out!!!

The problem with my cold cold bathroom is that there is *no* room for a space heater. It's a tiny tiny bathroom.
