How to Stay Warm This Holiday Season

Posted on

A completely impractical and financially insensitive step-by-step guide to staying warm this holiday season!

  1. Head to California.

  2. Go to the beach.

    Actual beach may vary.

  3. Take Rand with you.

    If you can't find Rand, feel free to substitute with the love of your life.

  4. Do this.

    Is that the heat of the sun? NO, IT'S THE FIRE OF LOVE MY BABY HAS FOR ME.

  5. Repeat as necessary.

P.S. – Can’t make it to California or the beach? No problem! This method also works great while sitting on a couch, lounging in a gazebo, or awaiting arraignment.

  • Every day is Valentine’s Day for the Everywhereist.
    Bravo!

  • Couch, yes. Gazebo, yes. But the benches in the courtrooms are wa-a-a-ay too crowded and uncomfortable–at least in Southwest Washington. What kind of benches do the courtrooms in Seattle *have*, exactly?

      My counsel has advised me not to say anything else about the matter.

  • Well…at least I was warned it was sappy before clicking:)

    • Everywhereist

      Yeah – I’m benevolent that way.

  • So… I am going to California for Christmas. If you don’t see Rand for a few days he might be with me. He said he was going to tell you… I hope I didn’t ruin the surprise.

  • it’s really sweet that you guys are so much in love 🙂
    but if you’re really feeling adventurous come to India you’ll see a new and exotic place while keeping warm 🙂
    well, as long as you stay off the mountains.
    it’s down right hot here compared to there, and we never have snow anywhere south of Kashmir!

  • From the cold North East UK, with expectant wintery showers, almost anywhere is looking good. Especially as my 12 year old has solen the Simpsons fleece, which was keeping me warm (ish). One condition on moving somewhere warm for the holidays. No creapy crawlies, including venemous spiders, snakes and Frenchmen. Practically, I think I am going to have to paint a beach murial on the inside of my frosty windows and crank up the heating! Happy holidays, wherever you are.

  • Rand insisted on organizing our books by color *after* I had organized them alphabetically, AS ONE SHOULD. I suspect this is the closest I will ever come to divorcing him. I can't find a damn thing. But yes, it does look nice. #bookstagram #booklove #colorcodedbooks #bookshelf #shelfie
  • Four flights in five days. So sleepy. Finally heading home after a wonderful few hours in Ashland seeing @demeritt's incredible one-man show.
  • Why yes, I did run off to Ashland for a hot minute with the most handsome man in the world. What did you do today?
  • Thank you, Minneapolis, for reminding me that we can be pretty, even in the rain.
  • Stumbled upon these paranoid stone benches in MSP and they are speaking to my soul.
  • And to think, all this time I've been telling myself I pecan't.
  • Packing. Home in shambles. Accidently broke my own arm off of this wedding gift a dear friend made us. The symbolism is not lost on me.
  • This absurdly handsome man bounded across the stage in his "Nevertheless, She Persisted" t-shirt and talked about how he doesn't always adhere to gender norms, and that's okay. #soproud #inbound17 #latergram
  • Oh, okay, fine, I'll keep him. (Off to the Inbound conference, where I expect to trounce this fool with my speaking score.) #thisagain #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaplane
  • I sent @randderuiter to the housewares store by himself and this happened. I am the luckiest woman in the world. #christopherwalken #davidbowie #bowiepillow #walkenpillow
