can't get enough of that snuggie

Thanks mom (although, I pray to god that she never ever reads this blog) for passing along this article. She knows that my Snuggie love runs deep.

According to the article, Snuggie-mania is extending far beyond the couch and into the bar. If you don't feel like reading the article, here's a summary - a Chicago-based charity has come up with the idea of having participants in a pub crawl wear their Snuggies to the bar. Some would say that wearing one of these to a bar is similar to, oh say, wearing a sweater? Blasphemers! I think this is a fantastic idea, and frankly, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't come up with it myself. It's probably because most of my friends shun me while I lay on the couch, basking in the glory that is my electric blue Snuggie.

The first Snuggie pub-crawl is taking place in Chicago on April 18. If anyone out there on the interwebz is going to be in the area, I am begging you to go and report back to me. Unfortunately, I'll be in the midst of weeklong bender in Vegas and Coachella at that time. However, the article does say that New York City could be next. Looks like I may have to plan a trip to see the 'rents!

But, you know what my response is for all those nay-sayers out there? If the snuggie is good enough for the hosts of The Today Show, then damnit, it's good enough for me.

Dude, Al Roker is totally working that Snuggie!

i'm really starting to question your loyalty. i feel that at any moment i may enter the apartment to find a hand written note saying "farewell, the life i knew. snuggles and i have run away to a better, warmer, hands-free life in the alaskan wilderness."

I was looking at your older posts and saw that you have one too! Hasn't it changed your life? my roommate (as you can see above) mocks me, but secretly, I think she's jealous ;)
