Wine -Winter is horrible and I don't want to go out or do anything more than sit in my house in something comfy and drink wine and watch movies. And yet I keep ending up at bars and I'm like, "I don't know, maybe I'll have a beer...maybe I'll have some whiskey...maybe I'll like vodka..." I hate all of that stuff right now. I don't want to drink a cold thing. I want to drink warm or room temperature beverages and I sure as shit don't want to wear pants, why do I keep ending up at bars?
Colored Tights - Let me again tell you how much winter is killing my spirit to live. It's cold, you guys, and I'm grumpy and my skin is dry and I wish I lived in the rainforest. The only thing that's kept me from falling into my usual winter uniform is cute tights. Brick red, mustard yellow and royal blue have been my most worn colors so far, but I'm looking for a nice purple, bubble gum pink and green for my next purchases. I also have these and I love them.
Classical MPR - I am really terrible at studying/grading papers and I need a perfect, uncomplicated, distraction-free environment before I even sit down to work. My house has to be clean, my hair has to be right, the moon must be aligned with Jupiter, etc. The worst thing about my study habits is that I can't listen to music with words that I understand in it. I made an okay mix on Spotify of Japanese jam bands and dream pop, but it got really boring really quickly so I started adding Japanese composers and then that turned into whatever classical music I could think of, too, and then I remembered that there are like, whole entire radio stations that only play classical music! So thanks a lot, Classical MPR. Your webstream got me through an entire semester of grad school.
Fluffy Winter Cat Coats - My kitties have gotten sooo soft and fluffy this year! Harley is especially hairy this winter and every time I rub up on her I am just ecstatic with how fluffy she is. I love putting my hands in her belly fur when I come in from the cold. Neil got really soft, but has a short coat so he gets chilly. During the day he is all up in my business trying to get snuggles, and when he's in bed with me he likes to get under the blankets or right up close. There has been a lot of cat snugglin' in this house. I'm not even mad.
