Gobble, gobble
Can I tell you how cold my inlaws keep their house? So cold, I'm sitting at this desk right now wearing a men's parka. With the hood up. And everything that's not under the parka is still freezing. It's so cold, I couldn't sleep last night because my neck was stiff from huddling under the covers and because the cold air hurt my nostrils. When I worked up the courage to get up and go to the bathroom I ran into MIL coming out. She was wearing a nightgown that looked like a big loose t-shirt with a low neck. Sick, eh?

On the upside, I managed to make my pecan pie after all, and some proper cranberry sauce. And my inlaws are nice people, even if they are part seal.

Happy T-Day, everybody!

Might I recommend hanging out in the kitchen? It's bound to be beastly hot in there soon...

I'm just off the kitchen right now. It's as warm as it's going to get, with the turkey in the oven, but it's also totally exposed to the Arctic blasts coming from every other room in the house.

Thanks, though. [I have now snapped up the face-protector thing on the hood of the parka. My nose, hands, and feet are blocks of ice. Wish me luck!]

zz-nonno and I are part seal too. Visitors to zz-house have learned to dress for snow. Inside.

*makes slanty-slit eyes at zz-neena*

When the Mr. saw me just now huddling in his zipped-up, snapped-up parka he laughed at me for about five minutes, then he took pity on me and set up a little space heater by my feet. So I'm slowly thawing, on one side at least.

I'm sorry—I've been in those houses before. My parents', for one. Fortunately for me, I'm spending Thanksgiving in my sister's new house, which is toasty warm and smells like pie.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Heh. Further update: FIL took pity on me and turned the heat up a bit, which allowed me to unzip the parka. SIL proceeded to walk around in a nightgown a lot like MIL's last night, then open a window in the back bathroom so her makeup wouldn't run off her face as she was putting it on. I like her, but she's a freak.
