Lovenote to Snuggie Blanket







I recently posted on Snuggie Blankets and learned helplessness, but my eye-rolling has had little to no effect. It seems that the world has fallen in love. This morning I came across a creative bit of earned media for Snuggie Blankets at Patrol.com. Sharon writes:

Dear Snuggie,

I’ll never forget the first time my eyes met yours. I was sitting at home on the couch, cold and lonely, in a dead-end relationship with yet another blanket....

The item we all love to hate!
And, Nancy, the clapper does seem like an awesome gadget. Not that I ever bought one of those either...

brad,

i must confess, i have bought the clapper as a fun gift for my youngest daughter a couple of years ago. we pluged her bedroom lamp into it. she and peter have made a little competition out of time for lights out that they sometimes play.

what was funny though, was once when she had a cold and was coughing in bed, sometimes the lamp would go on.


i am really into timers on the lamps too, especially for dark early winter mornings with cj getting ready for school. i like to set one in the bathroom for just before we have to get up, that way it shines into her room a little bit to ease the transition.

but, the snuggie...not even the slightest bit of desire to have one. not as long as i have a wood stove.

nAncY, I think I could forego a lot of things as long as I've got a wood stove to get me through damp Michigan winters. Keeps me warmer than a snuggie ever could.

In fact come this winter, I may just have to compose "Ode to the Wood Stove."

If they only made a work-appropriate version!

I work from home and my office (a half-century-old addition) is the coldest room in the house. In the coldest months I can actually see my breath in here.

Snuggie Office Suit?
