I Know

I complain about this every year... I'm COLD! It's the usual, uninsulated cinderblock warehouse with no heat, bricks get as cold as whatever the temp goes down to at night, not enough sun in the day to warm them up, perpetual cold coming off the walls no matter how close I get the space heater. Which means a winter of numb fingers and just plain cold.

I was just thinking... Have you tried a Handcuffs sweatshirt? I like them because you can fold the cuffs up if you need to use your hands or fold them down when you want your fingers covered... and no one has to know :)

I take it's a special sort of shirt as opposed to me just pulling my sleeves over my hands? :) (which I do)

yep. here's their page:

They come from Fresno, actually, which is why I know about them. They have a thumbhole and extra long cuffs, you'll see.

And you live in an unheated cinderblock wearhouse because. . . ?

I work in one, not live.

That occured to me after posting. I spend most of my day in my car, but I have Sirius, so I'm not complaining.

Well, I live in the milder part of Canada (Vancouver), but I still feel the cold. I'm wearing microfleece under my office clothes these days (the kind you would normally wear on a ski hill). Mmm toasty warm ... As for hands, keep one of those squishy stress balls around. If your fingers are cold, give it a few squeezes. That should get some warm blood flow happening.
