Saturday, November 10, 2007


(please note the title, it's brrrrrrrrrrr as in cold, not Burr as in star of Godzilla, Raymond Burr)

sorry, I am filled with nothing but snark this morning I guess. So, it's Saturday...happy Saturday to you all.

it's f-ing cold here in this giant old house, and it's not the middle of November yet, so this really does not bode very well.

All I want to do is sleep and cuddle into my bubs because he is hot, both in looks and in temperature, he;s my little space heater!!

SO anyway, yesterday in my long stretch of packaging things and research for a commission and vintage photo retouching I got so cold, I kept adding layers and layers to my outfit so that by the time my bubs came home from work I was wearing.

1- pair of knee high socks
2- long johns
3- jeans
4- long sleeve black turtle neck
5- baby doll red Shazam t-shirt over the turtle neck
6- little black cardigan sweater, like a naughty secretary would wear
7- my winter hat
8- fleece blanket wrapped around my shoulders like a pashmina shawl

when my bubs looked at me he said

bubs- what the hell is wrong with you, it's not that cold.

me- um yeah it is, come over here and let me put my hands on your skin, they are so cold they feel wet.

bubs- no, no, NO!!!!! You should see yourself, you look like a homeless, homeless person

me- I don't know what that is, homeless, homeless

bubs- like a crazy bag lady who had no home, then she got a giant box to live in and then the giant box got taken away from her, so she is double homeless.

(me looking in the mirror)

me- oh yeah....I do, but it's cute on me, right.

bubs- um........yeah.

me- can I put my hands on your skin??

bubs- still no.

so.....................this is it, this is how the winter is going to be, I can sense it, I will rock the homeless, homeless chic and my warm bubs will walk around being all warm.

even in the few minutes that it took to type this, my hands have gone cold.

sigh, I am turning into an old woman.

happy Saturday.

And so it begins. I totally identify. My "bubs" and I are having the "ugly turtleneck" debate now that it is fall!

I love that you were rocking the Shazam tee. I wonder what it was adding to the warmth equation. I also think I'm missing the point. The red wine from last night is causing my brain pain this AM.

I hear what you're saying about feeling cold (and old). Also, it has been my experience that the cold vs. hot thing is not age-related. It's a male vs/ female thing and always will be.

Happy Saturday!

brrrr is right!

I've got plenty of kneesocks and leg warmers, sweaters not so much.

And I want a new space heater. I forsee the shopping trip we have been putting off happening today.

And the air conditioner in my studio has GOT to go!

Yes, it is getting cold here too. My feet, as I type, are ice. Boo on your bubs for not sharing his warmth!

Amen, Sister Jenn. I have been freezing in my old, drafty apartment for the last week or so, but I have been trying so hard not to turn on the heat unless it's a dire emergency. I mean seriously, oil prices?

I wonder if I can work an Oil for Food program with my heating company? How many tacos equals a gallon of oil, I wonder?

it's when it gets this cold that I most miss sleeping with someone else. I want a warm body to keep me from getting chilly.

Ugh, I've been so cold too. Hood up, fire in the fireplace, heat cranked and *still* my hands have been too cold to draw. I've cut the fingers off a pair of gloves of I can grip a pencil in this weather.

Just a few more months.
