I hate this time of year. Oh, I love spring, don't get me wrong. But I hate it.

Tuesday it was 85° outside and 70° in the office. Wednesday it was 55° in the morning outside and 68° inside. How am I supposed to dress for that? I still need my winter wardrobe for the office, or else I'll freeze. And when I go outside dressed like it's February, I roast. There's no winning.

How come if I microwave a pack of microwave bacon for 2 minutes and 45 seconds it's not quite done enough and I have to add 30 seconds 3 times so it's not raw in the middle, but if I set the timer to 3:15 it burns beyond consumption?

Regarding your temperature problem; roll the window down.

Regarding your microwave problem; Microwave were originally designed for military use to combat the radar installations of the enemy. A side benefit of that was that we found that they are good at melting and thus shaping plastic objects but the process needs at least 3 to 3 1/2 minutes to alter the molecules of the plastic enough to shape it. If the process is stopped before the plastic is thoroughly melted, then the molecular structure quickly reverts back to it's original state.
Since bacon is 86.943 % plastic it adheres to the same molecular structure rules as regular plastic. Hope this helps.

I find layers are key at the office - esp since most of them have windows that do not open. I always keep a sweater in my drawer, regardless of the time of year.
