Socks and Underwear

Happy Birthday to me. Michele's off working overnights and I'm about to catchup on The Daily Show after enjoying a fantastic TV dinner. Anyway, Michele outdid herself this year with socks and underwear. Believe it or not it's a great gift.

About a year ago I turned a corner on socks. Tim and Lucy got me a nice pair of wool socks a year ago, not the big, furry, itchy popular amongst those that harvest maple syrup in Vermont, but the thin, comfy, not too warm, not too cold socks of the future. It's amazing how much better I feel at the end of a day when I'm wearing a nice pair of socks. Anyway, Michele's purchase of birthday socks puts me over the top, I now have enough decent socks that never again will I have to wear a pair of six for six dollars cotton athletic socks.

As for the underwear, I've been wondering for a while if it would be possible to turn a corner on underwear the same way I did on socks. This, however, is a much more expensive prospect. Have you seen how much a single pair of travel underwear goes for at REI? No way in hell I was spending that kind of money for the unknown, so Michele took that step for me.

She also got me a picture book and a normal word based book.

Oh yeah, I she got me cupcakes too.
