Furry coats and battery powered socks...

So, it's winter time and therefore it's cold. I realize it's not as cold in living in the south as opposed to other places, but to me it's still dang cold. It's times like these that I wish I had the guts to wear a fur coat. There are women in the city where I live that find no problem breaking out the fur, but I feel a little odd wearing fur when I live twenty minutes from the ocean. I don't know, maybe I need to move past my reservations and prejudices and go for it. I probably won't because I have plenty of coats....and I'm poor. But I will say a fur lined coat would have looked sweet when I went to Vermont for spring break last year.

I also want to investigate an intriguing product my friend Julie mentioned her father bought her mother last year: battery powered socks! I have the worst blood circulation (my friend who is in med school said it was either diabetes or bad blood circulation...I'm going with the second one) and my feet and hands are almost constantly ice-cold during the winter. It is incredibly uncomfortable, so I'm always looking for new ways to keep them warm. These socks have their own thermostat and last for 12 hours! I doubt that I would be wearing them that long, but holy cow! This may the answer to all my cold feet woes. Even though I've already invested in a space heater for my room, I'm thinking a belated Christmas 2009 present to myself is in order.

I realize my desire to live in a place where it is appropriate to where fur coats is at odds with my icy extremities, but hopefully I can find a way to make it all work.
