The One in Which I Am Officially the Biggest Dork Alive (But So, So Happy).

Disclaimer: If, after seeing this post, you feel the need to de-twitter, de-20something blogger, or de-reader me, even if you are a friend IRL and you de-facebook me, I will not take offense. It is most likely deserved. I, however, simply cannot help myself. But if you stick with me after this one? Bffies for life, my darlings. FOR LIFE.

Walking over to our neighborhood bar last Friday after work, B turned to me and said, “I got you a surprise today.”

Now, I have many virtues… but patience is not one of them. I demanded to know what it was and pestered him until he had no choice but to seemingly (ooo, foreshadowing!) give in.

“Toilet paper!” He finally announced triumphantly, lying through his teeth.

“Hooray!” I whooped, genuinely excited by the prospect of having some real TP in the apartment, as we’d been going without it for about a week by then. Paper towels got us through a day or two, and when that supply was depleted, we moved on to the holiday napkins my mother had sent us in a care package. Oh, you think I’m kidding? Yeah, well, I thought you might say that…

Yeah. That actually happened. “But, LiLu,” I can hear you saying. “They sell that stuff in STORES… just FYI.”

I know, dear reader, I know. But there is a problem. B and I are two incredibly lazy and forgetful individuals (not necessarily in that order). But this is neither here nor there! We’re missing the point: He told me toilet paper, and I bought it. Moving on.

A couple hours later, we crashed into the apartment, drunk and exhausted from the long work week. “Hey darling,” he called to me from the kitchen (5 feet away), “Why don’t you grab that blanket off the loveseat over there?”

Anticipating some sweet cuddlin’ time, I gladly obliged. As I lifted the blanket, my eyes opened wide as saucers and I squealed with glee. Can you blame me? No, my lovelies, surely you cannot, for THIS is what I saw:

It was as though it was Christmas morning, my name was Ralphie, and Santa himself had promised me a Red Ryder BB gun.

[Ed note: Bear with me, haters. My unabashed, though ironical, love of the Snuggie is no secret. I first confessed it here (click that one to watch the actual infomercial), and later confirmed it here, against Lil Sis' wishes. More than a few of you have even sent me the link for the DC Snuggie Pub Crawl. So don't look so surprised. You knew this was coming eventually.]

“Wait,” B stopped me with the glorious fluff already in my hands. “To get the full effect, we should probably reenact the commercial, so we can actually experience the newfound liberation the Snuggie will afford us.”

“You’re right,” I said, “And I have readers to think about. Get the camera.

So I curled up underneath a “regular” blanket, and attempted to reach my delicious glass of vino…

Giant fail! How on earth could I reach my wine with my hands TRAPPED under the blanket? Oh, the frustration!

Next, the laptop. What if I couldn’t reach YOU GUYS??? What would I do?

SAD FACE = FAIL!!! “All right, enough of this torture!” I said. “It’s time to unleash the SNUGGIES!!!”

And we did, my friends. Oh, we did…

The movement! Look at the MOVEMENT!!! (B says pay no attention to his black socks with shorts. We had just gotten home and hadn’t completely pajamafied yet.)

Next up, to test the mobility of the Snuggie where the normal blanket had failed.

SUCCESS!!! (And a little bit of crazy face. I take my vino very seriously.)

Look how happeeee I am! It might be tacky, folks, but would you really take this away from me?

B even got crazy with the FREE reading light! Look how easy it is to read! With the light! All lit and stuff! Look!

Btw… Hey Snuggie, what’s a girl gotta do to get on the payroll? Cause I’m pretty sure I’m doing it…

Okay, I’m done. I promise. I hope you at least had a few hundred laughs at my expense.

(And if you’re wondering if I’m wearing it right now? The answer is YES. And it is FABULOUS.)

Gaaah.

2 Malnurtured Snay February 24, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Were you paid for this? Seriously now.

3 fabbrunette February 24, 2009 at 1:11 pm

OMG that’s the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve also never seen the snuggie on anyone under the age of 40. Woot!

4 Miss Scorpio February 24, 2009 at 1:19 pm

Rock it with pride, my dear!

5 LizSara February 24, 2009 at 1:24 pm

WANT

Nuff said x

6 FoggyDew February 24, 2009 at 1:25 pm

You’re dead to me (at least until the next time we see each other or I check your blog for updates). But dead right now nonetheless.

7 PQ February 24, 2009 at 1:28 pm

*snort*

At least you make it look cute.

8 The Maiden Metallurgist February 24, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Hey, people love the Snuggie. No shame.

9 Lemmonex February 24, 2009 at 1:37 pm

You have a look of such pure and genuine joy on your face.

Ya know what I love most about this post? Your trash can in your bathroom is filled with beer cans.

10 SassyGinger February 24, 2009 at 1:47 pm

Really, I don’t even know what to say right now. I would dump you as a blogger friend, but I love your blog too much.

Is it sad that this almost makes me want a snuggie? I’m gagging at myself.

11 Mb February 24, 2009 at 1:52 pm

This is perfectly timed! I thought of you last night at the Georgetown basketball game. A guy was featured on the jumbotron because he was in the stands wearing a snuggie and holding a sign that said “Snuggie Saxa”!!!!

12 Chele February 24, 2009 at 1:53 pm

I really want a snuggie, even though I live in Bangkok and its hot

13 I-66 February 24, 2009 at 1:55 pm

Snuggie = Robe worn backwards.

14 ClaireMontgomeryMD February 24, 2009 at 1:57 pm

i love dorks!

15 Fearless in Toronto February 24, 2009 at 2:01 pm

Remember, I want mine in RED.

Sorry love, but the best pic by far is the one of B reading with his little lamp. Have I seen him in the Sears catalogue?

16 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 2:12 pm

Malnurtured Snay: I WISH.

fabbrunette: It is cozy. I have no shame. Glad to make you smile :-)

Miss Scorpio: Pride AND glee, my love.

LizSara: Yesss! Another convert!

FoggyDew: I totally understand. Beer sometime this week?

PQ: Aw, thanks hon!

The Maiden Metallurgist: It truly has a pop culture following now.

Lemmonex: Apparently we’re busting chops today? Hooker.

Sassy Ginger: It’s okay to love it. It really is. I won’t tell.

Mb: YESSS that guy is awesome!

Chele: Crank up the AC and get Snuggie with it!

66: I know. I prefer to think of it as a magical wizard cape, though. Either way.

Claire: Hi, I’m LiLu!

Fearless: He does pull it off well. And we will find you a red one… no cooties that way!

17 Jacqueline February 24, 2009 at 2:16 pm

This is too funny. I should really get one of these because I’m always cold!

18 lustyreader February 24, 2009 at 2:17 pm

I’m pretty sure these were sold out for a while, I had friends who were on “backorder” after trying to get them for christmas, obvi this is for a REASON. My fave part about the commercials is that the first few scenes have Blue Overtones to emphasize the coldness of the old, crappy, sleeveless blanket.

19 margelina February 24, 2009 at 2:21 pm

LOL, OMG me and hubby laugh hysterically over all of those crazy infomercials, this one was no different! Amazing how well it works just like *they* say! Love the pics! You are awesome!!!

20 Marie February 24, 2009 at 2:23 pm

Hahaha! Too hilarious! You guys are really rockin’ the Snuggies.

Keep it on today. It’s like 26F outside.

21 pithycomments February 24, 2009 at 2:23 pm

You’re on thin ice missy!! First the no show at the bloggy goodness and now this!?!?

ps. 5 bucks says Flippy pops out of her cube w. excitement when she reads this post.

22 Kyla Bea February 24, 2009 at 2:34 pm

lol! Oh gosh, they’re OPEN at the back?? It just gets weirder!!

I’m kind of glad that there’s no way they’re allowed in our house. The dog hair would make for horror.

23 Miles To Go Before I Sleep...... February 24, 2009 at 2:41 pm

That was fantastic! You could make people everywhere want one ;-)

24 freckledk February 24, 2009 at 2:44 pm

Oh dear. It’s a good thing you’re adorable. Oh my.

I think you should couple that puppy with a pair of Uggs and cause Lexa to have a full embolism.

25 Shelly February 24, 2009 at 2:44 pm

So I take it there is still no toilet paper????

And WTF I wear my robe backwards all the time! I could have invented these! lol! It always happens that way! I called chocolate whipped cream back in 6th grade!

26 Ella February 24, 2009 at 2:45 pm

snuggies for the entire family are on our wish list right now! both of my kids (ages 10 & 5) have been home sick recently and we're all moaning "i want a snuggie." and the whole toilet paper issue? i'm right there with you and the left over paper napkins. only my napkins saved for emergency use have spider man and high school musical printed on them!

27 Essentially Me February 24, 2009 at 2:52 pm

After the night I had last night, I needed to see this post this morning to restore my faith in ridiculous fall on your face love. Seriously, thanks for making me smile on a day where I thought I had tucked all my smiles away.

And you two are the cutest fucking couple in blogland. True story.

28 Ben February 24, 2009 at 2:53 pm

Hahaha what would be awesome is wearing the snuggie naked and trying to keep it a secret only to unleash a full moon when someone least expects it.

Just at my house?

Okay.

Sorry.

29 Jo February 24, 2009 at 2:56 pm

So as you know, I also have one. However, I get made fun of by EVERYONE. Nick REFUSES to even try it on. He says his balls shrunk a little just by purchasing it for me.

I don’t care. I still love my snuggie.

30 Briana February 24, 2009 at 2:58 pm

LMAO!!

Oh wow.

I re-enacted the commercial also, only, I don’t have a Snuggie. You know what works exactly the same? A really soft robe!

Seriously.

31 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 3:04 pm

Jacqueline: It is pure heavenly fleece, my darling.

lustyreader: Seriously, who wants a Sleeveless Blanket when you could have a SNUGGIE?!

margelina: Haha- thanks, although I think the phrase you’re looking for is “huge dork”. Glad I could make you smile :-)

Marie: I KNOW. The first thing my mom said when I called her on the way to work yesterday: “Are you wearing the Snuggie?”

pithy: I’ll be at the next one, I swear! I’ll even wear the Snuggie… if flippy wears hers!

Kyla Bea: I have to admit, I’d trade the Snuggie for one of your cute lil pups in an instant.

Miles To Go: Just doing the Lord’s work, my dear. Oh wait, I mean QVC’s. My bad.

frecks: I keep bumping into her on the street wearing them, too. She’s going to disown me.

Shelly: He actually got TP as WELL, thereby cementing his status as the best BF EVER.

Ella: I just might have to have a Snuggie giveaway…

EM: Aw, sweets. Shoot me an email if you need an ear, lord knows I’ve been there. Big wet smooches and glad to make you smile.

Ben: Oh, come on. You really think we haven’t pulled that one out in our apartment? ;-)

Jo: Rock on and wear it with pride, my love! Ain’t no shame in being cozy.

Briana: Shhhhhh. I’m trying to get an endorsement here!

32 flipflops February 24, 2009 at 3:09 pm

I’m so happy right now… I will TOTALLY wear mine. We should probably plan our own Snuggie pub crawl sometime soon.

33 Dr. H February 24, 2009 at 3:10 pm

I *love* the re-enacted commercial! Can’t wait to hear about the Suggie Pub Crawl and your photo-documentary of that event :-)

34 ifihadtopickfive February 24, 2009 at 3:11 pm

And it is such a flattering shade of blue!

35 Deutlich February 24, 2009 at 3:11 pm

I know you said pay no attention to the black socks and shorts….but I can’t help it.

They’re totally distracting.

36 Katherine February 24, 2009 at 3:16 pm

I love that the before-Snuggie pictures are in sad, sad black and white and the after-Snuggie pictures are in glorious color. It’s totally like reality.

37 insomniaclolita February 24, 2009 at 3:17 pm

Woah Lilu, I want one. I can go around the house wearing one.

38 Laura February 24, 2009 at 3:19 pm

Haha!! I love it! Good cuddling is serious business. FAR more important than toilet paper.

39 Kristen February 24, 2009 at 3:29 pm

YESSS!!!! Best blog post ever!! You don’t even know how bad I want a snuggie or the hours my friends and I have spent talking and dreaming about Snuggies.

40 lacochran February 24, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Snuggie as toilet paper? Haven't you already strained your plumbing enough?

:) Congrats. He did that for you–> That's true love.

41 Kristin February 24, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Wow, just wow. Maybe I don’t get the full allure of the Sunggie because I live in a pretty temperate climate?

Enjoy my friends!

42 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 3:51 pm

flipflops: We probably should. We’re going to need a serious plan to do this right.

Dr. H: It should be spectacular. How can it not be?

ifihadtopickfive: ALMOST Carolina… they’re off by just a smidge.

Deutlich: I had to beg to get him to let me post that pic. I owe him one. Two, really, for the Snuggie.

Katherine: Life is black and white under a “normal” blanket. Everyone knows that.

insomniaclolita: Darling, you can go ANYWHERE wearing one. The backless aspect really helps for the bathroom…

Laura: Thank goodness, he got the TP too. We were running out of snowflake napkins.

Kristen: I really do need to have a Snuggie giveaway, I think.

lacochran: Whoa, whoa- the Snuggie was not used as TP! The TP was simply a ruse to hide the fact that he bought us Snuggies. I do have SOME boundaries. Fleece up my bum is apparently one of them. And yes, how can the man who bought you a Snuggie NOT be true wuv? :-)

Kbo: Or maybe you’re just cooler than me. Either way.

43 Margo February 24, 2009 at 4:10 pm

I love it that fancy cocktail napkins can be used in these situations. Even though I buy tp in bulk, there are still those days when we get by with what’s available before I drag myself to the store. Your snuggies are gorgeous! I love the sapphire color. You should definitely be on the snuggie payroll in some capacity.

44 Racquel Valencia February 24, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Sweet baby Jesus. There are no words.

45 Dolce February 24, 2009 at 4:17 pm

The bright blue Snuggie is hilarious! Every single time I see it, I can’t help but think of a statue of the the Virgin Mary. It looks exactly like her robes…so strange.

46 tanya February 24, 2009 at 4:24 pm

ha ha, gotta love it.

47 Georgia February 24, 2009 at 4:28 pm

Haaaa! Those snuggies make you guys look like you’re in a cult…a cult that I would gladly join.

48 Just A Girl February 24, 2009 at 4:28 pm

My dumb jerk friend changed his fb status to something about “What is with chicks and the Snuggie?” the other day and me and 2 of his other girl friends immediately expressed our devotion. One of them has one and she informed him that, since if you buy one they send you TWO, he should get them for us. Make two ladies happy in one go. He said he would, so I’m anxiously awaiting mine. Perfect for beer and video games. Or wine and reading (which is much classier :D )

Also, I think I might want to come to DC just for the Snuggie pub crawl. Are interlopers allowed?

49 fiona February 24, 2009 at 4:28 pm

LMFAO…speechless

50 briankainec.com February 24, 2009 at 4:31 pm

OK, that’s it. I’m so getting one. We could start a snuggie cult… (they could totally double as cultist robes)

51 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 4:31 pm

Margo: I know, right?? I should send them a letter…

Racquel Valencia: No words good, or no words bad?

Dolce: I am EXACTLY like the Virgin Mary. Except I let B hit it a lot. That’s basically the same, right?

tanya: Truly, you do.

Georgia: You can join my fuzzy cult anytime, love.

Just A Girl: See? We can’t help it! We are programmed to love cute and snuggly things! Also, my tootsies get cold.

fiona: I made fiona speechless?! Now I’ve really done it!

52 CatsPuke February 24, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Goodness Me! Possibly one of the greatest inventions ever known!

CP x

53 Lisa February 24, 2009 at 4:35 pm

The thing I like best about it, besides how happy you are, is that you look like a cross between Carolina kids on graduation day and Jedi knights. It’s kind of awesome.

54 Gladys February 24, 2009 at 4:44 pm

So why not just wear a robe backwards? How bout cutting a hole in the middle of a blanket and wearing it like a poncho? I just don’t get it Lilu. Please don’t think I’m an old fuddy duddy. This is a young person thing isn’t it? Please tell me that I’m not mistaken.

Now the ShamWOW that is something altogether different. ;)

55 f.B February 24, 2009 at 4:45 pm

You are awesome. The closest I’ve come to a Snuggie in real life is the bootleg, asymmetrical “Slaggie” my roommate has. Just not the same.

56 Vittoria February 24, 2009 at 4:55 pm

this makes me so happy.

57 Kate February 24, 2009 at 5:06 pm

So, you’ll be doing a Snuggie giveaway very soon, yes?

58 notyourplainjane February 24, 2009 at 5:09 pm

I LOVE this! I really need one of these!

59 Oxen Cox February 24, 2009 at 5:21 pm

OK does it seriously work. Beau and I have an anniversary coming up and I am thinking it should be on my shopping list. Hmmm.

60 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 5:22 pm

CatsPuke: Welcome, dear! I’m so glad you could swing by on my klassiest day ever…

Lisa: I KNOW, right? It’s like, just barely off the hue of Carolina blue. But I’ll TAKE it!

Gladys: Hmm. Some are arguing that it must be a “young thing”, some that it’s for fuddy duddies (which you are certainly NOT!). I think it’s just for everyone!

f.B: I think I need proof that this so-called “Slaggie” exists.

Vittoria: Haha thanks love! ME TOO.

Kate: I think it has to happen, clearly.

notyourplainjane: See above. The giveaway is coming.

61 PorkStar February 24, 2009 at 5:23 pm

hahahahaha, dude this post was hilarious!!!!
Cheers

62 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 5:24 pm

briankainec: Oops, missed you. You MUST get one… I know someone in particular that it would drive up the wall… ;-)

Oxen Cox: It does work, but as we found out… WASH IT FIRST. Our entire living room is covered in blue fuzz. I looked at B’s blue beard on Sunday and he looked like a smurf!

63 surviving myself February 24, 2009 at 5:31 pm

My fiancee wants a Snuggie badly. I guess I should buy her one after reading this.

64 prettylittletangents February 24, 2009 at 5:32 pm

You, my dear, are in the wrong industry! You should TOTALY be in advertising. Your picture commercial is soooooo much better than the tv one :)

As always, thanks for the laugh!

65 Chic Runner February 24, 2009 at 5:35 pm

ha ha ha love it. people mock but they just don’t understand the snuggie! :) Glad you love it too.

66 Anonymous February 24, 2009 at 5:44 pm

OOOHHHH MY GORDNESS!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT ONE TOOO DAMN-EET
I WANT A SNUGGIE…. AND I’VE BEEN WANTING ONE FOREVER…. THAT’S IT. I’M COMING OVER THIS WEEK AND USING IT …. :)

67 Hannah February 24, 2009 at 5:50 pm

Awww..I want one, its too damn cold in Canada! :p

68 Hannah February 24, 2009 at 5:52 pm

Oops double post sorry! (I was trying to type while under a blanket. LOL);)

69 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 5:58 pm

PorkStar: Thanks, sweets! Cheers to you.

surviving myself: $15 to put a look of glee on her face like the one of mine? Totally worth it, no?

plt: You are so welcome, my darling. Maybe I should consider a career change… or at LEAST be their new spokeswoman!

Chic Runner: Great minds, my dear, great minds.

Anonymous: Tuesday Boozeday, don't think for a SECOND I don't know that is you. You're welcome to my Snuggie any time! <3

Hannah: SEE?! You need one of these! That would never happen if your hands weren't TRAPPED under a Non-Sleeved Blanket!

70 jane in the waiting line February 24, 2009 at 6:09 pm

all i want is a snuggie. i am so jealous. i may need to just do it, because that wine shot is the story of my life.

71 Zipcode February 24, 2009 at 6:16 pm

muahaha that shade of blue looks great on you!

72 Little Ms Blogger February 24, 2009 at 6:20 pm

OMG I love the do-it-yourself commercial for the Snuggie. Why are they both the same color?….I also love that B used the mini light in a fully lit room.

About the TP…you need a living creature in the house (B doesn’t count). When I had my cat, Static, I’d eventually have to go to the store for fear of being eaten in my sleep because she had no food.

Maybe you can convince the liquor store to sell TP….how awesome would that be????…..

73 3 Bay B Chicks February 24, 2009 at 6:30 pm

You are one funny lady, Lilu. Anyone with this kind of commitment to her glass of wine is my kind of gal.

Have you checked out Kristina P of Pulsipher Predilections? I am sure that the two of you would be fast cyber-BFFs. The love for your Snuggies is true.

Thanks for a good laugh.

-Wenda

74 So@24 February 24, 2009 at 6:35 pm

73 comments on a Snuggie post!

Absolutely brilliant.

However, what are your thoughts on the Slanket…

75 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 6:44 pm

jane in the waiting line: I sense a kindred spirit in you, my dear. Stick around.

Zipcode: HA- thanks babe!

LMB: Do you know how many times I have thought this?? If only liquor stores would sell TP, tampons and toothpaste… oh, how much better my life would be.

Wenda: Oh my lord, I found her and YES, I think we were destined to be BFFs! And I take my wine very, very seriously ;-)

So@24: At least we all have our priorities straight. The Slanket is a wanna be imposter!

76 IIDLYYCKMA February 24, 2009 at 7:00 pm

ROTFLMAO!!!!!! I think I just wet my pants, fallen in love with you, and am going to read you forever:) No pressure:)

77 golublog February 24, 2009 at 7:08 pm

Oh my god I didn’t think anyone bought these things. This is great.

78 Julie February 24, 2009 at 8:17 pm

I can’t stop laughing at you.

79 brookem February 24, 2009 at 8:18 pm

they have them at my local walgreens. ive been jonsing for one for a while now. just because they are so wild and crazy. manfriend says he won’t give in to my pleads for it. wtf?

80 Life On Edge. February 24, 2009 at 8:21 pm

I knew it. Well no actually I didn’t.

81 Patty Duke February 24, 2009 at 8:48 pm

Three bed room houses are expensive to heat. So I keep my thermostat at 65 and sleep in a sweater. I think this Snuggie will work just fine.

82 LiLu February 24, 2009 at 8:59 pm

IIDLYYCKMA: You are welcome to hug and squeeze and stick around forever, absotuteilutely.

golublog: You thought wrong, my friend. You thought wrong.

Julie: Can you say “with”, just so I feel better?

brookem: Sounds like you need to go behind someone’s back… the Snuggie is too important!

LOE: You suspected. I know.

Patty Duke: EXACTLY. Take that, PepCo! I’s got a SNUGGIE now!

83 Jenni Jiggety February 24, 2009 at 10:00 pm

I am pretty sure I need one…

84 Jules February 24, 2009 at 10:01 pm

Life is officially good for you my friend! And of course, warm!!! Welcome to Complete Dorkhood!!!! You’ve made it to the other side!

85 Jessica February 24, 2009 at 10:11 pm

Ohhhh I’m dying for a Snuggie!! My bday is right around the corner and I just may have to treat myself!

86 Kate Coveny Hood February 24, 2009 at 10:13 pm

First – you HAVE to go buy TP before your toilet overflows. I’m serious. You can’t use heavy duty paper long term.

Second – I LOVE your snuggies! The pictures are hilarious. I should probably get one since I’m always cold and when I work from home in our house with old windows, I sometimes have to get out my husband’s ancient college swim teach coat thing (I don’t know what it is – but it’s like a really long coat lined in fleece). I could really use a snuggie.

Third – the colors are pretty bad. Don’t they do anything a little less “electric?”

87 Maxie February 24, 2009 at 10:13 pm

my favorite part of this post was the crazy face. that was awesome.

so what is the material like? is it felt…itchy? i need details.

88 Steam Me Up, Kid February 24, 2009 at 10:16 pm

Careful, Ralphie. You’ll shoot your eye out with that thing.

89 TishTash February 24, 2009 at 10:25 pm

That blue goes so well with your complexion, and that wine glass goes well with your hand. Oh happy day. Don’t let the haters get you down.

90 Mary February 24, 2009 at 10:45 pm

Oh, damn! Now I want a Snuggie, too. I guess it’s time to start buttering up the hubbie.

or…

How ’bout I trade you a case of charmin for that there Snuggie?

91 Jen February 24, 2009 at 10:58 pm

My son bought one around Christmas time. He and all his little goth friends swooped into the As Seen On TV store in the Mall of America and bought them out. I have tried to steal it when he isn’t looking but it is hard to hide. I went back to MOA but they are constantly sold out. I am truly envious and you look wonderful in it.

92 Vic February 25, 2009 at 12:32 am

Honestly, it’s like it was MADE for you. The fit is incredible. (Tell B he is awesome, and the socks totally work.)
:)

The face you’re making in the first picture is officially The Funniest Thing On The Internet today. Congrats to B on being awesome, although as a dude, I’d appreciate it if he’d drop the ball a little more often because he’s making us uncaring jerks look bad.

Sure, technically, we’re making ourselves look bad, but personal responsibility doesn’t match well with being an uncaring jerk.

HILARIOUS! I secretly want one too. I have a birthday coming up, interwebs. Spread the word as fast as you’d spread the news of my little elected boobies flashing at a HS football game.

Oh my hell! Yes, we do need to be best friends! Me and my Snuggie go everywhere, as evidenced by my Snuggie Picture of the week.

97 Dan-E February 25, 2009 at 2:38 am

98 LiLu February 25, 2009 at 2:43 am

Jenni Jiggety: You do!

Jules: Not only this… I called my father this morning and asked him for advice about writing html code. I am officially a dork.

Jessica: I smell a giveaway on here… don't go far…

KCH: Don't worry, we finally got some! And the pictures are pretty funny, given that we were TANKED. Apparently they sell red, but it wasn't at the BB&B B went to.

Maxie: Actually, I thought specifically of how much you would appreciate that pic when I uploaded it. And they're fleece… so no, not itchy, but they shed like a mofo.

SMU, Kid: Raaaalphie! I can't get up!

TishTash: That wine glass ALWAYS go well wtih my hand.

Mary: Does the case o' charmin come in extra large?

Jen: You deserve a Snuggie. Don't give up! Everyone does.

Vic: It was made for me! Or anyone between the sizes of 60-300 lbs. Special!

pistols at dawn: I'll have to take him down a peg or two tomorrow.

Hillbilly Princess: Shout your secret from the rooftops! Don't be ashamed of your love for the Snuggie, birthday girl!

Alexa: It's the Snuggie, not me. It's got POWER.

Kristina P: I'm so glad she thought of us! This is the beginning of a beautiful (snuggalicious) friendship, my dear.

Dan-E: I'm glad you did too. Hang out, it's a party up in here. :-)

I thought had died and gone to heaven when I got your PIX text the other night….but these pics take the cake.

Congrats m’lady. I am so proud.

100 Just Playing Pretend February 25, 2009 at 3:08 am

I’m jealous. Really really jealous.
I have a co-worker who wears a snuggie at work. She is a teacher. I love taking breaks from my class to run by and see her standing in her snuggie. It’s fantastic and ridiculous all at once.

101 [F]oxymoron February 25, 2009 at 3:18 am

You just made me laugh! The Coffee snorted through nose laugh.

Damn you Snuggie people… now I have to do laundry!

102 Smart Mouth Broad February 25, 2009 at 3:25 am

Oh dear, dear LiLu! I’m so glad you got your Snuggi. Your sis needs to hush. A girls gotta have what a girls gotta have. I saw one a month ago in Bed Bath and Beyond and thought of you. You guys are too cute!

103 Spellbound February 25, 2009 at 4:14 am

You look very nice in blue. My mother told me I had to say something nice or nothing at all. Now to prove I forgive I will be glad to mail you some TP. My husband, along with some other minor problems, is a compulsive sale shopper. We have enough of the stuff to last through a nuclear winter.

104 cavy February 25, 2009 at 4:40 am

you should PROBABLY send a copy of this post to the snuggie company. they might make you the new spokesperson!

and not gonna lie, i’m sorta jealous. i want the red one – but only to wear it to a mock sporting event and cheer proudly from the tiny, fake bleachers.

yeah, i’ll probably own one before the end of the year.. ;)

105 Woolly February 25, 2009 at 11:50 am

That is toooo funny!
I can’t believe you own one…

every time I see that commercial I laugh

106 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) February 25, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I would’ve given my right arm to have owned one when our furnace was out from Sunday until yesterday…it was COLD!! Wait, if I gave my right arm, then the Snuggie would be lopsided…hmmm…I’ll have to rethink what I’d give to have one…(grin!!) You ROCK the Snuggie! ;)

107 LiLu February 25, 2009 at 1:28 pm

FattyLumpa: I knew you would be :-)

JPP: TO WORK?! Wow, she is hardcore. I guess you can get away with it as a teacher… just tell them you’re playing “Wizard” everyday.

[F]oxymoron: At least we’re good for something ;-)

SMB: It was going to happen eventually. Thanks, mama!

Spellbound: If only we had a car, we’d probably do the same… Thank you for your forgiveness!

cavy: I know, I really should. Although apparently I’m one of a million jumping on the Snuggie train… but we do make it look GOOD.

Woolly: Honestly? I can’t believe it either.

Stacy (TRCC): I think you could do without a pinkie toe…?

108 Classy in Philadelphia February 25, 2009 at 2:48 pm

I totally have one too…hehe.

109 Belle February 25, 2009 at 3:23 pm

I go away to actually do real “work” and come back to find this snuggie!! AAAAACK!

I have no words…but I still heart you.

110 Rox February 25, 2009 at 4:20 pm

Oooh, I wonder if I can get one here in Cape Town, and do they come in pink?? Want want want!

Oh and I’m also slack with getting toilet paper, I hoard napkins from takeaway and pizza deliveries, it’s awful.

111 PorkStar February 25, 2009 at 6:29 pm

LMFAO, talking about pheromones, time to change the shirt im wearing……

112 Connie February 25, 2009 at 7:43 pm

Awesome transition from :-( to :-D Makes me want a snuggie. Can I get one with feeties built in?

113 BeckEye February 25, 2009 at 7:56 pm

Oh! You have the pretty blue one! My nieceling got one for her birthday (which she isn’t sharing with anyone) but she got the crappy Benedictine Monk-maroon.

114 Oliveira February 26, 2009 at 10:15 pm

115 NoticedFromNorthwest March 2, 2009 at 12:25 am

116 emma March 2, 2009 at 2:39 am

All I can say is, thank god you look good in blue.

117 LiLu March 2, 2009 at 2:36 pm

Classy in Philly: Yes! Win!

Belle: Haha, I heart you too love.

Rox: I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they come in pink!

PorkStar: Ha. Sorry!

Connie: Feeties would definitely make this better! Maybe I can sew some on…

BeckEye: He tried to get one red and one blue, but this was all they had. Brings out my eyes ;-)

Oliveira: He better come through for ya.

NFNW: That is HILARIOUS. Thanks for that!!!

emma: I’m rockin it.

118 Andy April 21, 2009 at 8:01 pm

I may have gone outside for my Snuggie review, but you got 117 comments on yours. I say it’s a draw… and you even got your drink on, too.

119 Snuggie Cult July 16, 2009 at 2:50 pm

The Snuggie is indeed fabulous. All hail the mighty power of the Snuggie!
