Snuggie Doodle

No really, how cute is this??!?

One of my buddies I met thru Facebook is an illustrator and doodled this little cartoon of me wearing an Eagles-colored Snuggie, and telling my “I hope you don’t make it to the future” joke.

Super adorable, right? I mean, the Iggles, Snuggies and talking about people that shouldn’t make it to the future are three of my absolute favorite things… The only thing that could have made it more perfect is if I were standing in front of a CVS. Hahaha, maybe next time.

THANKS KATE!!!

Remember back when you laughed at me for having a (3) Snuggie(s)? My how far you’ve come!

A Fluffy Surprise

Before comedy, I had zero robes. Now look at my growing collection!

This beauty came to me in the mail today from the HBO folks — my swag for being a part of the Bill Maher tapings. How neat! It’s always exciting to get a package from FedEx when you’re not expecting anything!

Sorry but I’m not putting on makeup for you people. I’m working. And there’s no make-up in baseball!… Wait, huh? ;)

And this is the robe I got when I did The Ellen Show. So pretty and comfy. I heart it. :) I’mΒ  learning that robes are the currency of big-time comedy shows. I can’t wait to make it to the point where I can give away gifts like these after my big performances. The only difference is my souvies will be embroidered Snuggies.

Because well… you know. ;)

Merry Christmas? a.k.a. My parents have no idea who I am

Really. It’s like they have no idea. Most of you guys have never met me but you know how I feel about El Snuggie. I mean I have a category on my blog entitled “Snuggies are awesome.” Well, this year for Christmas I asked for the Deluxe Snuggie (the one with the pockets), and my father bought me (wait for it…) a “Premium Softie” instead.

I’m so not lying.

I joked on Facebook that it was just a lined sleeping bag with arm holes:

But I finally decided to open the box and I realized that there aren’t even any arm holes. It’s just a blanket — and not a very big one — with a couple snaps and a zipper.

Nuff said. Continue reading →

The Dreamie — say it ain’t so…

I think we ALL know how much I heart the Snuggie.

Well, today my friend David sent me this video about the Dreamie:

How am I just now seeing this? It’s apparently been around for a while… Not sure exactly how I feel about it. I mean, I don’t sleep on satin sheets as it is, so I’m not sure this is quite as essential as the Snuggie.

HUSH YOUR MOUTH! The Snuggie is too essential!

It’s about time for me to begin compiling this Christmas’ wish list, so I’ll just throw the Dreamie on there and see what happens (ahem, ahem…)

Snuggie Sutra

UPDATE: OK I lied because I didn’t see it the first go-round… My favorite part of this site is the FAQ. No really, I cried. Take THAT, Slanket!!!

Could I use a Slanket?
Are you serious? Only if you regularly drink RC Cola and intend to use supermarket-brand condoms .

How does the Snuggie react to bodily fluids?
Eagerly.

This is absolutely hilarious. My friend David sent this to me and I almost choked. I’m sure some of y’all have seen this already, but given my affinity (some might call it an ‘obsession’) for the Snuggie, it was especially hilarious to me.

Here’s one of the Snuggie Sutra positions, complete with description:

More than the actual ‘positions’ I think my favorite part of the site is the header:  “You have a Snuggie. You have sex. This was inevitable.” Hahaha… and here I thought my Snug-session was what was preventing me from having sex…

They should make this into a coffee table book. And then I could buy it. And put it on the coffee table in my living room right next to my Snuggies — subliminal messaging for all the sexy menfolk that stop by to visit me.

In my dreams.

Another Snuggie convert

This one goes out to all of y’all who hate on my beloved Snuggie. Feel free to check out some of my other Snuggie posts

snug_blue snug_eagles

Anyway, I received the following e-mail on Facebook last nite. No further explanation needed. Read it and acknowledge the awesomeness of the Snuggie.

Please and thank you.

I also would like to report that since my CVS blog I have brought a few people over from the drug store dark side to the light. I guess you could call me… a missionary of sorts.

You could also call me a few other things… but please, just not to my face. ;)

Good Times: Aren’t we lucky we have them?

Yeah so I’m cold.

Why don’t you turn on the heat, Erin?

Good question.

The answer: Because I can’t. My condo was refurbished from an old apartment building, so while it’s super cute and all the appliances were new when I moved in, I don’t have central air/heat. We have window units and radiators…

So just open the radiator, Erin.

Again, good suggestion.

My response: I could do that, but no heat would come out. A few weeks ago after a brief warm spell our property management company turned off the heat for the spring. And we can’t turn it on again because we were robbed by our previous property management company and as of right now are working on suing them and replenishing the reserve money they stole from us. In short, we cannot currently afford to turn the heat back on.

Yes, that is very project-ish — especially considering I pay a mortgage and association fees… I should not have to sit in my house with my oven open…

But I’m doing it. And don’t you dare judge me… I’ll clean my oven when I thaw out.

Sure the hat and scarf may be a little overly dramatic — but that’s what I do.

There are other factors contributing to my freezing my butt off and this cold I can’t get rid of. Reasons I won’t get into here. But I have a neighbors who are sick and many of us are wearing full-on winter outfits around the house and to bed (don’t worry about how I know ;). I have to go into the studio tonight and shoot 3 radio segments — I can’t breathe through my nose and I sound like crap. I know I sound like I’m whining, and I don’t mean it to come off that way. I was going more for PISSED OFF!!! Thank goodness for my Snuggies –  and the fact that my place isn’t very big. When I cook in the summer I often complain about how hot the place gets. Today there are no complaints.

My upstairs neighbor Rafeal laughed at me last week when I told him about my oven warming. He said he hadn’t heard about anyone doing that in years. Sure, I feel like I climbed right out of an episode of Good Times…

(Just looking outta the window…)

TV LAND GOOD TIMES

But it gets the job done.

Pissed, cold and congested,

E.

OK so maybe I’m a LITTLE obsessed with the Snuggie…

OK, so I was in my favorite store (CVS) tonite — as I am most nights — and as I was looking for some mailing labels, I came across Snuggies for sale on the value aisle…

I'm not a tattle-tale, but...

I'm not a tattle-tale, but...

Now, I was under the impression that Snuggies weren’t available in retail stores — that they could only be ordered through their official website. But apparently I was wrong. That or CVS is bootlegging Snuggies, in which case I apologize profusely for this post — I’m not trying to get you caught out there C-to-the-V…

All my friends know how much I love CVS. I’m always letting them know about the deals I find — trying to convert the non-believers. Please see the text convo between me and my girl Sandi:

I’ll never doubt you again.

Anyway, as you know I already have a custom NFL fleece Snuggie, made for me by my girl DWJ…

My Eagles Snuggie!

My Eagles Snuggie!

But I couldn’t pass up the chance to pick up the authentic Snuggie. Because I really want to attend the Snuggie Pub Crawl in DC and I’m not sure if you can do it without an official Snuggie… I’m getting a little discouraged though because I’ve still yet to be notified when the DC Snuggie Pub Crawl is taking place. I joined the mailing list, but we’re almost out of Snuggie weather so I’m wondering if they’re gonna nix some of the cities.

And yes, I’m so serious. First, they’re donating proceeds from the event to charity (or at least they better be!!!) And second… do you know how HILARIOUS that would be?!? I would do a two-camera shoot and recruit a crew of correspondents and hit the streets. Talk about a video blog that writes itself. Drunken Snuggie Monks roaming the Cap City. Man oh man… I really hope I get the chance.

I couldn't resist... $14.99 <i>AND</i> the book light. CAMMAN!

I couldn't resist... $14.99 AND the book light. CAMMAN!

Anyway, that’s me in my new Snuggie. Don’t be a hater. You know who you are ;) Holler.
