i lived in New Hampshire for 6 years and loved the small personal freedoms that it used to carry as opposed to other states. first, i loved that you could smoke in bars. this is a glorious freedom for smokers, and people who were bothered by it didn't go to the bar. enough said. in Maine, they want you 50 feet (or something ridiculous) away from the DOOR. but now, of course, that law in NH has been passed. no more smoking cloves at the house of pizza.
i heard on NPR this morning that NH finally passed the seat belt law. the last state in the US to pass it. please, someone, explain to me why this was allowed to happen. personal safety is a choice, no? what happened to "Live Free or Die"? what the hell, NH.
and what happened on my way to work? i got pulled over for going 10 over the speed limit and got a ticket for $70 because i wasn't wearing my seat belt.
life is cruel.
here's the dilemma: it's ultrasoft, super-thick fleece. i have a love/hate relationship with this thing.
i love it because it keeps me crazy warm in the winter.
i hate it because:
1) it's too warm for 5 of the 12 months out of the year.
2) it's a dog hair magnet.
3) it's too thick and the texture makes me cringe if my skin is dry, which is 10 of the 12 months out of the year .
i wish i could find something like this:
but not have to pay $150 million.
where do i get a comfortable, clean, simple bathrobe for under $50 that doesn't have Hello Kitty, Tweety, "Sexypants" or hearts all over it?
tried a swatch of blue in the guest bedroom-a little shelf over the stove-drawing and painting again-and finally, the most exciting slowly-but-surely moment-YYYESSSSS
i had no idea what kind of hardware i wanted, though i was leaning towards brushed gold, and now she's inspired me to use silver. i believe i told Manda that i was worried my kitchen felt like a "womb" so silver will cool it down a bit.
