I don’t have much to say today except to suggest that my electric blanket breaking in the same 24 hour period as the furnace is a confluence of events that would be funny if it wasn’t so COLD, and frankly one I’d rather not experience again.  The furnace is fixed and it’s not 16 degrees in here anymore, which is nice, and moreover we didn’t even have to pay to have it fixed thanks to our protection plan, which is also nice, but I’m just now thawing out, thanks to the heat of my laptop and the snuggliness of my cat and the fuzziness of my sweater.  If it had continued much longer, I may have had to resort to the ridiculousness of my sock rabbit hat.
