Brrrrrrrrrr issshhh cooold!!!

When I woke up this morning it was TWENTY SEVEN DEGREES outside. In Los Angeles. The governator has declared a state of emergency. Los Angeles is maybe in shock, and also is mad. We would like a refund please!

But I love the cold weather since it's such a nice change from same-old same-old. Funny how we like some changes. Also I got to wear pretty much every single handknit item I own ...all at one time!

I went to Stitch 'n Bitch yesterday. Once a month there is a Saturday Stitch 'n Bitch and I was in a surprisingly good mood considering the whole "I will drink too much wine and cry at the internet" thing from Friday night, and I even talked to people! A lot! Okay, maybe too much. But it was awesome. I have a hard time balancing how much to say (what is too much? or can I even speak a whole sentence right now without paralyzing in fear? or if I open my mouth will I NEVER SHUT UP?) but I am not going to sit here today and think of all the dumb things I probably said, I'm just going to remember how much I enjoy the company of these women and how interesting and lovely they all are.

After SNB, I went to the grocery store because I think it is a universal law that when natural disasters are about to strike, such as hurricanes and blizzards and also, um, clear sunny days that dip right below freezing, you MUST stock up on essentials such as cat food and wine and olives. So, I was standing in the wine aisle and I overheard these two people talking.

"We have to remember to buy soymilk for coffee in the morning, too."

"We don't need that."

"Yes we do."

"We always go to Starbucks, why do you want to make coffee at home? I thought your diet allowed you one latte a day?"

"It's not the diet, it's supposed to be 20 degrees or something in the morning. Like, are YOU going to leave the house in that?"

"Oh shit..."

"I know!"

"We should get those pee pad things, too, I'm not taking the dog out in that, that's insane."

Ah, Los Angeles. We face such hardships. I don't know how we will survive, bless our hearts.

And what the heck is a pee pad? Anyone? Bueller?
