It's Cold Outside!!

So, we're out for Jock in the Box all this week-- well, the guys are out much more than I am. We're trying to get clothing for The Road Home so, Frank and DB have decided to live in a cardboard box on State Street. Great in theory, but frankly, it sucks. Maybe I'm just a big, blue-eyed, red-haired baby, but it's so cold in the mornings, it takes nearly four hours for me to feel all thawed out. "Layers!" they say, "dress in layers!" Which is fantastic if you have clothing to layer-- I, for one, don't. I don't have big baggy jeans to put over flannel pants and long-johns. I don't have long-johns, for real, I don't do cold weather activities. I thought maybe a couple of pairs of Capezio ballet pink tights from dance class might cut it under my jeans today, but to no avail.

Did I mention I don't do cold? I don't ski, I don't snowboard, I'm more of a temperate to tropical kind of girl, which is why I think if I go home, the thermostat is set to 78 degrees. And let me tell you, nothing felt better yesterday than going home to my warm apartment, taking a hot bubble bath, and settling in for some quality television time before snuggling into my nice, comfy bed. Give me 600 thread-count sheets ANYTIME over what the guys are putting themselves through right now!!

In other news, I think Deena and I are going out for coffee today, and I'm hoping to pick a place with a cute barista to flirt with. We may shop, but if not, I might break down and go to the grocery store tonight. That would be a bold step for me, as I hate grocery shopping.
