Vampire question

Alright. As I understand it, 98.6 degrees farenheit is the averace core temperature for the human body. The skin, naturally, is colder, as are the extremities.

Now, a vampire- being dead- wouldn't generate any internal heat. If he'd been hanging around the same place all day, his entire body would be ambient temperature.

My question, then, is this: how cold would ambient temperature have to be before the skin/extremities would be noticably colder than a person could really account for with bad circulation?

Spanish language bits

Oye. Spanish speaking character and the extent of my Spanish is "La tortuga esta en fuego." (it's a useful phrase, quiet you!)

I need him to whisper something sweet and romantic in his wife's ear and I got nothing. He's kind of verbose and if there's a more complicated/sophisticated way to say the phrase, he'd use that... Also he has like, a contraction-phobia and never ever uses contractions.

Also, "my darling" equivalent = mi querida, if I recall from a previous topic?

Also need an equivalent for an exasperated phrase akin to "Oh, for the love of God."

[edit] Oh yeah... The difference between Se~nora and Se~norita and where the line is. Which would you call a young (17) woman who is married, and which would you call an older (ambiguously over 30) woman who is unmarried but has a child? [/edit]
