It's winter here, too. I hope you're warm enough up there! (Looks like you might be with that new heater, though.)

Talk to… the… snow… or whatever people do, then?

I’m really not good at giving advice, sorry.

Ha-ha. That would be a novel idea, provided I had any plants to talk to.

I can’t help you there. It’s winter, here.

*A large-ish package arrives on your doorstep, with a letter attached to it*

"Here’s your space heater! I looked for one that’s good for large spaces but doesn’t take too much power, and is safer in a house than a typical space heater. I don’t want anything to catch fire in your house! Just be careful not to touch it when it’s on, it gets really hot! I’m sure you know this, though. It has wheels too, so it’s fairly portable! Please enjoy, and I hope it helps!

- Winter Once-ler”

I have no idea.... Ha. I say stupid things sometimes, especially when I'm nervous. Sorry.

I don’t know what to tell you. Talk to your plants for practice?

You're the Once-ler, and I just stopped by to say hello, partially out of boredom, something I'm sure you can relate to. Heh.

Oh. Then why did you ask who I was?

No problem! I can get one mailed to you asap. And yes, my office has it's own fireplace, but for all intents and purposes it's just there for decoration in the end. I like it cold, myself.

I don’t know, I guess I prefer it to be warmer, but I can’t really complain. It seems like whatever weather I’m in I wish it were a different kind. That’s how it goes I guess.

Thanks.

you should play the game ib

I don’t know what that is.

Actually, to be honest, I found your blog months ago and had wanted to talk to you for ages, but was too scared to. I finally got up to the guts to say something, but I seem to be making a rather bad first impression....

So, do you know who I am or don’t you? Do you have business with me?

Cold, hm? I hope you have lots of blankets, or a space heater. If not, I could send you some! Anyways, it's good to see you around again.

Certain rooms are insulated better than others… but yes I have lots of blankets. Actually if you sent me a space heater, that would be pretty nice. I have this furnace that takes wood and I didn’t really think about it when I installed it but… that’s useless for what I hope are obvious reasons.

Hmph. Of course I can read. I'm just trying to be polite.

What? Polite? Since when is it good manners to bother someone you have no business with? If you don’t know who I am, you’re just talking to me for, what, something to do?
