“That’s what I like about your generation.  You guys aren’t afraid to wear really stupid things.” — Caitlin’s dad.

Okay, I know I made fun of faux-fur hats when I was in New York; I saw them everywhere, and they look ugly and retarded.  That being said, now that I’m back in San Francisco, and no one wears fur hats, all the sudden, I MUST have one.  I mean, I know it rarely gets cold enough even to see your breath here (actually, more the reason to want one), but mark my words, faux-fur hat is going to be my first “WTF, you’re an idiot. You know you can’t buy groceries this week now, right?” purchase of 2010.

Feeling Sassy?

I love Snuggies/Slankets, because I’m often bundled up beneath a blanket, trying to watch tv, read a book, or reach for the remote, and I need to be able to use my hands. But let’s face it, while great for lounging, you can’t really schlep around town in a blanket with sleeves.  That’s why I’m glad they invented the Necky. They help protect my neck and chest from the cold, without the annoying gaps of regular scarves! Perfect for taking a walk in the woods, bundling the kids up for school, and enjoying the big game! It even comes in Designer Leopard Print, for when you’re feeling sassy! Don’t believe me? Watch, below:

*Note: I’m not in any way getting paid to promote the Necky, I’m just a fan of this commercial. And designer leopard print.

Deep Thoughts

Apparently, there was a 4.1 earthquake in the Bay Area today, around 10 am.  I found out about it via facebook statuses when I woke up at 11am.  This leads me to believe, that when “The Big One” hits, I’ll be like those people in Titanic, who slept right on through the ship sinking.  [ed note: i still don’t understand how you sleep through a fucking ship sinking?! All the screaming, and violin music? That wouldn’t wake you up? What about the gun fight between Leo and Billy Zane? No? Guns don’t wake you up? How about the fact that you’re in the fucking arctic!  That water is fucking cold! No? None of that woke you up? Okay, wow. I give up.]

Wait, What Decade are We Supposed to be Nostalgic for Again?

Because like, two weeks ago, it was the 90s, right?  Seriously, last month we were all wearing plaid and some derivative of Doc Marten boots.

Doc Martens: I would be lying to you if I said I don't actually kind of want a pair
