#404 – Chilled

I draw my comics at a standing desk. One of the benefits is if I ever need to leave my desk for something I instantly do it. It’s very easy to walk over somewhere else in the house when I’m already standing. When I’m sitting in a chair and writing it’s a whole different story. “I’m really thirsty. I should go get my glass of water I left over there. Hmm… well, my wife will be home in a few hours. She’ll walk right past it. I can just wait until then.”

    Sleeping under massive sheets in freezing indoors is amazing! Although admittedly an energy waste with AC. The only problem is if you sweat in your sleep – then it’s either keep sweating, or expose your wet body to the harsh cold before you’ve even woken up to turn off the AC and use lighter sheets.

    my thermostat is down a spiral staircase from my bedroom. i had this same laziness issue until very recently. we’ve had a networked ‘smart’ thermostat now for about 2 weeks, and it’s freaking awesome!

    i’m sure there are other brands and models that offer similar (networked) functionality, but the one we got is the Nest (nest.com). all the auto-learning stuff is great and all, but my biggest use so far? changing the temp from bed. just like in the comic, i’m laying in bed with my phone in hand and thinking, “i’m too hot/cold” but now i can do something about it without burning a single calorie! yay i’m super american! 🙂

    Certain positions lead to certain actions. I wonder what on-your-back-centric decisions were made while painting the Sistene Chapel?

    I’m not sure if this is supposed to be funny, or true. ‘Cause this is how I am. During the winter, I’ll open my window just to be able to wrap myself up in a tonne of blankets.

      It may not be all about the temperature, either; being wrapped in a comfy blanket is, well, comforting. I recall a description of somebody very insecure, as being ‘not too tightly wrapped’ (as in infancy); we keep that with us, as an inner layer of the onion that is us. Be aware, but don’t let it trip you either!
