I just called a restaurant after taking my to-go order back to my office to make 100% sure that my pho chay was with vegetable broth, not beef broth, even though someone told me it was in the restaurant.

Just doing my part to make sure everyone thinks vegans are crazy.

The fact that I can sit and whine and bisque about being cold is pretty damn amazing. My dad is grouchy and groggy, but doing really well. Being frozen really is my biggest concern right now.

I'm so glad your dad is doing well! I hope he continues to do well (and that you warm up a bit!).

Home now. Target had no warm things not for tiny people. Everything was XS or S. The men's had high crew necks and I get panicky if stuff is touching my throat. I'll dig out my college hooded sweatshirt that is silly big and just pile on anything I can think of for tomorrow. I'll be able to take a hot drink. They had shorts, bikinis and tank tops though. Stores in January/February do not match reality at all.

I can't stop crying. It's really ridiculous. It's like once I got home, I started and just can't stop. I'm giving myself a headache.

I am so happy your dad's doing better. I second (nth?) everyone who's suggested a hat to stay warm. I also have a cloth face mask (actual face mask, but even a sporty-skiing style one would do), which helps when it's extra cold. Could that do it? If we were closer, we'd all just huddle around you for collective warmth, but distance.

Aw, LW, I'm sorry I missed this! I'm glad your dad is doing better. Hmmm my suggestion is getting a scarf with another material, cotton actually takes heat away from you. Its great for wearing stuff in the summer but not so great in the winter.

I am so happy everything is going well for your Dad's recovery. Its so sweet you're eating chili dogs for him, and I hope that you get to stay warm tomorrow. They sell those hand and feet warming packs, where you can just shove them into your gloves and socks and maybe that could give you an extra boost of warmth? Otherwise lots of tea and your favorite lattes :)

And definitely let out all those tears! You've been through so much <3

Big hugs to you <3

LW, glad things are looking much better!

I've spent a lot of time in hospitals, and I am always freezing. Beyond intense layering (I don't do the tights under pants thing, because ugh tights are uncomfortable and itchy and I wear them almost every day in normal life), I've learned to
a) Be really nice to the nurses to the point where they eventually let me in on where the warm blankets are kept (at my last hospital stay all the ladies in my room had me sneaking them warm blankets because I was the only mobile patient and I think most of them thought I was a nurse, and when my mum was in the hospital and also my husband's parents I was the official warm blanket go-getter)
b) Last hospital stay I found out that there were warm oversized socks for patients and visitors that volunteers provided at the hospital check-in
c) Really really focussed deep breathing does actually warm you from the inside-out
d) Toques and scarves. Mittens don't really warm me up so I always have my hands tucked somewhere or I sit on them.
e) If possible, brisk walks combined with deep breathing

I totally napped again today and I ate lots of brownies. So all in all it's been a perfect day.

I'm really not superstitious or anything, and definitely not religious, but this is a strange coincidence.

Yesterday, while visiting my dad, I was doing Japanese picture logic puzzles on my ipad. I do these all the time. You don't know the image until you are finished. Here is what it ended up being:

Image

This morning while visiting, he had the news on and a story came on about Christ the Redeemer being damaged in a lightning strike Thursday night.

Ok, maybe I'm a little superstitious. He lost half his blood very quickly during surgery, so miracle of sorts did happen for us.

So glad to hear things are going well for your dad lavawitch! I hope you are warmer today. I usually wear tights and leggings under my pants when I'm really cold.

Yeah, different wing of the building. It's colder outside today but I was ok today.

That's awesome that your dad is doing so well lavawitch, whether it was because of some sort of divine involvement or not!

Today I wondered if Bono ever has to explain to people who've never heard of him that his name is not pronounced like Sonny Bono's (Bo-No) but instead it's pronounced Ba-No.

There are people who haven't heard of Bono?

Ba-No?

Is it?

It's not.

Is it?

It's Bono like aw-no, surely?

Whatever, I call him Bonio. Or dickheid. Or that shitebasket who got stuck in a lemon. Depends on my mood.

Never heard ba-no, though.

Bono can be whatever you want him to be! And said however you want it said! I've never heard his name pronounced the same way as Sonny Bono's, though it's spelled the same.

I think my standard pronunciation of Bono comes from Phil Hartman's Frank Sinatra skit on SNL.
