Snuggies. The Good, The Bad, and The Tasteless

Living in Florida I normally wear sweaters and coat about 2 weeks out of the year. However this winter is has been un naturally cold. Even for Florida. Temps have dropped to record lows for weeks at a time. I have learned that I cannot handle anything under 50 degrees. Seriously, I'm freezing here folks. I go to bed in flannel pajamas with socks. I'm buried under 2 quilts and a heating blanket. My poor husband is dropping weight because I'm smothering him at night. So I decided I want a Snuggie. Yup. I want to look like a complete dork. But I'll be a warm dork and that's all that matters. As I was searching for Snuggies I didn't realize the extent of Snuggie love. We got plain snuggies. Designer snuggies. Team snuggies. We have friendship snuggies. Date night snuggies. There are even Snuggie events. In Baltimore there is a Snuggie pub crawl. Snuggies pub crawl Saturday in South Baltimore There isn't enough bourbon in the world that could make me wear a Snuggie outdoors. Weezer (the band) actually came out with a "wuggie". *giggle* A "wuggie" is a Snuggie but with the bands name on it. Go to their site and they have all sorts of package deals including a wuggie and their new cd. There are even entire websites DEVOTED to heart jerking letters extolling the virtues of Snuggies. Snuggies For The Soul, Inc. I never realized the extent of the Snuggie world until I saw this You Tube video. HOLY CRAP! There is a Snuggie cult. (some people need to get a life...seriously.) And did you know that there is a Freedom Blanket and a Slanket to compete with the Snuggie? Did you????? I didn't and now I'm sorry I do. :( I think after all of this I'm just going to sit with my ratty robe and flannel jammies. This was all too much for me. So I will stay Snuggie free for one more year. I'm sure the Fashion Police are thrilled. :)
