RE: OT:Heat vs. cold poll

Dayrl, I thought I had the only backward system.  I'm the same way.  I can
sit in a hot room and perspire like crazy, maybe even a little light headed
if it's hot enough, but I stay totally alert.  Put me in a chilly room and I
start nodding off.  I just can't stay awake.  I've been known to take
sweaters, blankets, extra heavy socks and gloves into work with me and type
with gloves on occasion when things were too cold.  

My husband was amazed that I would even get chills in the middle of summer
and drop off to sleep.  I can't concentrate when I'm cold.

Cold makes me want to hibernate. I can tolerate a little, but when I get
really chilled, all I want to do is sleep. My mind slows down and my train
of thought is derailed. I used to work in the computer room back in the days
when they were kept cold. During my breaks, I'd go out and sit in my car,
with the windows rolled up. In the summertime. It was the only thing that
kept me functional.
