Baby, it’s Egregiously Frigid Outside

It’s the first real cold snap of winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to wilt! Bwog has a whole list of reasons to embrace the freeze. To wit:

mittens

  • the de-thawing feeling in your extremities when you get back inside
  • the bulky clothes that obscure all the weight you’ll gain over the holidays
  • the reduction in BO from people not sweating ever
  • a reason to stay inside and study rather than get woefully behind by frolicking in the sunshine
  • an excuse to wear your kickass boots
  • hat hair
  • sweaters
  • tea
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas Album
  • “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm”
  • An excuse to drink more hot chocolate
  • A reminder that Christmas is right around the corner (before you also remember that exam season will once again ruin your caroling)
  • chocolate

  • Cracking open your window to chill your room, then falling asleep under layers of heavy, warm blankets.
  • Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
  • Trees with leaves that look like they’re on fire
  • Colors like burgundy, ocher, amber, and sienna (both “raw” and “burnt” varieties)
  • Finally being able to identify a constellation (Orion)
  • The disappearance of distractingly tight tops in class
  • an excuse to hole yourself up in Butler/your room so that you never have to see the light of day
  • Westside’s chicken noodle soup
  • Gingerbread
  • Babies in bulky snowsuits
  • Fireplaces
  • Christmas carols
  • Condensation on glass windows
  • Finger-painting on the condensation on glass windows
  • a reason to hold hands
  • thick wool socks
  • the guilty pleasure sludge of a Starbucks peppermint mocha
  • there’s finally no one on the steps so you can get that picture of Low you’ve always wa
    windowsnted
  • The imminent returns of Jack Bauer, Jack Shephard, and Bill Adama
  • the 8th (and last?) season of Scrubs!
  • 212 serving large iced coffees in paper cups (Yes, the coffee is cold, but they don’t buy large plastic cups–which sweat, a lot–for the wintertime)
  • More incentive to quit smoking–who wants to stand outside more than absolutely necessary?

    @wait disappearance of distractingly tight tops is a good thing? aww hell no! bwog, perhaps we are oriented to differing sexualities.

  • random says:

    @random I miss the summer dresses, long legs, spaghetti straps, and nipple indented shirts.

  • what? says:

    1. its says:

      @its in the back. go by the prepared foods section and its around the corner.

  • freezing says:

    @freezing ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ is probably my most-played album on iTunes just because of the ridiculous amount of times I listen to it during the holiday season. I love it!

  • i feel says:

    @i feel like there is more BO in the winter – certainly in Butler where the temperature is a balmy 97 degrees. No, people definitely sweat more in the winter… in this overheated city.

  • One More Thing: says:

    @One More Thing: You can play Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” on repeat and not be *that* weird.
