Working A/C Calls for Snuggie!


Our A/C has been out all summer long. What, is that weird?

Well, it is fixed now, thanks to angelic Chris, the air-conditioner man. So our upstairs is livable. Now we can use our oven without wondering if it will jeopardize our night's rest.

But our basement, our previous escape-- paradise, if you will-- is now like a visit to the North Pole. When Santa is out of town. This may be my last post of the whole summer (as the computer resides in the former paradise) if Jed doesn't put the old brass vents back into our newly finished ceiling. Encourage him--I beg you, encourage. Because the open vent over my head shooting out refrigerated air like hail balls while I type is more than I can take. The goosebumps on my arms plead for a Snuggie but alas, all I have is this quilt Jed's old girlfriend made (NO sleeves. Nice. )

Angelic Chris, I love you dearly for fixing our air. Now will someone come and put these vents in (and fix my dripping faucet upstairs and paint Hazel's playhouse)?

See you brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr later. Maybe. (chatter chatter chatter.)

Oh Ali, that's so funny. I can just picture that someone! Its too bad they didn't have snuggies way back then. :) Wouldn't that have been awesome if she had worn one to school!
Jayne that untouched photo of you in a snuggie is so great. Did Jed take it? You better start wearing it downstairs, dang it. I'll get me one for when I come and visit!

Umm, Jayne, what you need to ask for is a laptop, not vent covers. A laptop with a wireless connection. IT'S HEAVEN. I really never have to enter the basement ever again. (I think that photo of you is cool. How did Jed get those man hands in it? Hey, did he photoshop part of it and put in man hands?)

You know, $14.95 is really a reasonable price for a snuggie. Maybe I will get you one for your birthday, because it is probably going to be a while before the vents get covered back up. I know that kind of thing is just too much to ask for.

so like shana to notice jayne's man hands. also like shana: forgetting it's a sore subject around here.

You know, in the week of the twenty-fourth of July, I would like to remind you that there were thousands of pioneers who would have killed for blasting vents over their heads to cool them down while pulled their handcarts across the plains with blistered hands and feet.

P.S. Who was this ex-girlfriend and who makes a quilt without sleeves? Weird!

I will buy you the Buxton Organizer. In red. So that it will match your red Snuggie.

Furthermore, I think that Snuggie is kind of a funny name. It meant something different back in my day, it should be called "Snugglie" or "The Snuggler" or maybe "Blankie with Sleeves".

This is a funny post. I am feeling so bad my for husband, Kev, who is laying in bed with 3 blankets piled on top of him. meanwhile, I have the AC on 65. Yes, 65. I am on this medication that makes my have lots and lots of hot flashes or as Kevin calls them BOILING periods. There is no flash about them! He has accused me of turning him into a girl. Jed will understand that one, I hope. :)

There is a lady @ the local flea market here who makes a SNOOGLE. A Snoogle is a big blanket with a hoodie, sleeves and a place to wrap your feet. She makes lots of dough selling them and they come in hundred of colors and patterns.

Blankie with sleeves has got to be one of the best things I've heard in a while. Yay for Linds. And for Jayne's man hands.

funniest comments all.
Al, I have NO idea what you're talking about. I have NEVER held my hands over my chest area to cover the evidence of coldness. It MUST be someone else.

And it's just like EMILY to put me in my place. Always trying to be a better mormon than me. And we think the girlfriend who made the sleeveless quilt (really?) was Amanda. Pretty sure.

And Linds, I have NO idea what the buxton organizer is, but I am laughing just thinking about it. And I think I may have actually had conversations with you where snuggie did NOT mean blankie with sleeves.

And SNOOGLE? hillarious.

I can't look at that picture without mentioning that you are sitting on MY COUCH...and if you have my couch in your house then can I come and hang out because my A/C doesn't work and I am DYING in this heat!

Rebecca said...
