Freezing My Tail Off

So, I had this problem. I only heat one room of my aparto. And it ain't the bathroom. And the tempeture in the unheated parts of the apartment have been running about 42-50 degrees farenheit. And the toilet seat tends to be around -2 degrees. I found myself "holding it" because of this little dilemma. I would think "It's only an hour until I go to the community center, I can hold it" or "Do I need anything at the store?" so as to use other restrooms. Well, this just couldn't continue. So I looked into the Japanese way of dealing with the difficulty...heated toilet seats. I figured the extra expense would be worth the health benefits I would get. Until I went to the store and saw that the cheapest one was around $200. Shit! Or worse, not shit. While I was in the hyaku yen shop I came to the bathroom supplies and saw the toilet lid covers, which I despise. But then realized they also had matching seat covers, too. Well, for the equivilent of one dollar I would be willing to try it. Low and behold it is amazing what a difference it makes. Best hyaku yen I ever spent.
