Blankets and Snuggies

I totally thought about ordering this:

Everyone who knows me will come to know my passion against the Snuggie.  I have ALWAYS said that the Snuggie is a blanket with holes... and who wants holes in their blanket?  One male friend (who currently maintains ownership of the Britney Spears collectible Barbie doll) has often argued that the Snuggie is actually more like a backwards-robe... again, this is stupid.  Is that really a better argument? Would YOU pay $29.95 for two mildly-soft, backwards robes AND a "free" small book lamp?" (That is probably built into the cost in reality.)  If you answered yes, our current friendship status is in a state of pending jeopardy.

I'll give anything a chance once... but sometimes it's JUST once.  To prove my point, and my ability to be open to all man-made creations, I once wore a Snuggie. It was Fall of 2009 at our Ward Cabin Trip... It was there I discovered that JT's Snuggie, a triple-dog dare (of no consequence), too much diet coke, and a vicious lack of sleep, can cause a momentary lapse in my judgment.  When I told my friends to, "Take a picture, it'll last longer," I didn't realize at the time how long this picture would actually last... Too long.

Dang you, Snuggie.  Dang you.

Song of the Day:  I had a slight disagreement about Adele tonight at FHE... Haha!  I LOVE her new album.  Love.  I was on the bandwagon before the bandwagon was created and shipped out of the station.  There are a bunch of great songs from the album, but I have to say my favorite one is the song "Turning Tables."  There is something about the beauty in getting over someone or something -  in realizing that you're strong enough to walk away when this person or thing has hurt you over and over again.  I recently realized I was strong enough, and proved it to myself... I guess that's why I enjoy it so much.  Enjoy!

That video is hilarious! So once upon a time, a Snuggie commercial came on and I started making fun of it. Unbeknownst to me, my husband (who was sitting next to me) had just bought me a Snuggie for my birthday. So then he felt like a loser and I felt like a loser for making fun of it. So I wanted to give the Snuggie a fair chance, and turns out...I really liked it. I used it in the mornings when I worked from home from my computer. I kept warm and could still type. I still think Snuggies are hilarious, but mine definitely came in handy.
