Well, I do have a little something.... last night I was watching TV and my nose started getting really, really cold.... and then I put on my big down coat and I started thinking, sheesh, why do I have such a chill tonight? I went upstairs and into my jammies and leaped into bed (which my dear, darling husband had already set to pre-heat -God bless 'im!) and wrapped myself around him because he had been in bed awhile and was all warmed up. I shivered and provoked him with my ice-cubed feet and hands and he chuckled and said that his arms were cold, too, because that was the only part of him that had been outside the blankets holding his book.
Now, to set the stage, we do keep the thermostat at 60 at night, so this whole scenario was not too far off from the normal routine. At least not far enough off to set any alarms off....
At 2 a.m., the Animal comes into our room hauling his blanket and teddy bear and whatever other sleep stuff he drags all over the house. I scoot over, but in the shifting of the covers I feel that it is REALLY cold. Like really, really f**king freeze-your-face-off cold in our room! So I get up and carry Stu back to his own room and feel the 10 degree difference between their "zone" and ours. And then I pass a vent in our room that is blowing COLD air! I wake up Daddy-007 and demand he leap into action and fix the furnace. Being the the hero that he is, he flies into action. I go back to bed and turn the blanket up from low to 3. Daddy-007 comes back and reports that the problem is fixed. What was it? It seems that the Animal decided to play with the thermostat and had turned it down to 55˙!!! That little gremlin truly does get into everything.
Now, in addition to the Obamicon photo (of me in my Amy Winehouse get-up), I have a rockin' photo from New Years' with my friend Kat who lives on my block. Imagine my horror when Aretha Franklin showed up in OUR hat at the inauguration!!! That bitch totally stole our look.
