Merry Christmas!

Oh, I suppose I'm a little late.

I got some great Christmas gifts. I got a flat screen monitor to replace the dinosaur cathode-ray monitor I'd been using since 1999. I also got a gift certificate for a haircut, color, facial and brow wax because I've decided 2009 is the year I give up the hippie-chick/earth-mother thing and have a Year of Grooming.

But what I use the most is a simple gift from G., a microwavable hot/cold pack because apparently I am prone to climb into bed with cold feet and then expect G's warmth to compensate. Well, no more! I have a whole major heat source right at my feet each night. In fact, I can't go to bed without it now. I climb into bed, realize I've forgotten to heat it up, and run out to the kitchen in my t-shirt and bare feet to pop it in the microwave for 4 minutes. But it's OK because as my feet are freezing in our freezing kitchen, I know I'm going to hop into bed with a hottie who will soothe my circulation-challenged feet very soon. I love it, seriously. Isn't it funny how the simplest things end up being the things we can't live without?
