our xmas wish lists
will have lots of stuff on them for sure, but merritt and i would be more than happy to accept a total panda experience. if anyone wants to fork out the $2000 to send us (btw, that's for both of us to go -- what a steal!), we'd love you forever. IJS.

Slanket vs. Snuggie
So my Facebook status of wanting a big blankie, a mug of something and the TV prompted blog-pal Sophie to suggest a Snuggie. "Well, Hells bells!" I gasped. Seems ol' Snuggie has taken the idea of the Slanket (something that has been on my wish list for ages due to it's $40+ price tag) and slashed the price in half. What?! Yeah, I know. Awesome.
Except for one thing. While the Snuggie site does boast a charming video, it just cannot compare to the amazing descriptions of color found on the Slanket site. Who wrote these? Where are they now? Can I buy them a cup of coffee while they sit toasty under a SlanketSnuggie?
Since I can't put the whole page here, I'll tease you with one: the Castlerock grey:
"The high intensity discharge lights washed the steel vault in an antiseptic glow. Cold gray walls as thick as the armor of a battleship. Each man had his own reason for being there, that night. Yet they all shared one common interest. When the last seal on the door had been cracked, their treasure was revealed, The Slanket, in Castlerock Grey."
Check them all out here. And might I suggest that such an item would make a great gift this holiday season.
