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.

  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
