I can vouch for that. My daughter made one at a church youth group thing a few years ago. I'm ashamed to admit that I love that thing.

You could say essentially the same thing about the Snuggie.

 

EDIT: Looks like L'Incandescent beat me to it.

I bet that's not the only place L'incandescent beats you in

I appreciate that one ninth of CF's posts on this forum are in response to my comment about hoodies. That makes me feel special.

Usually I post about matters relating to chili, which is my métier, but I felt strongly about this topic.

As well you should. Thank you for your contribution.

What do you have to do to make a Snuggie? Isn't it just a blanket?

Comments of this nature receive a "chili" reception from me.

People speakly loudly into their phone on public transport...do you have no idea where you are? And the other person on the phone can hear you without shouting...

Thing I don't get: A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook about how proud she was of her husband because he did some five-day survival thing. Being the outdoorsy sort, I'm down with this, at least conceptually.

The part I don't get is how spectacularly irresponsible he was on his adventure. He and some friends went into Death Valley with almost no gear (just what he could fit in a pack), no communications equipment, and only a vague idea as to location.

Oh, and they didn't bring any water.

This is a guy with a business, a wife, and a preschool-aged kid. I get pushing yourself, I really do, and I'd love to do a backcountry trip sort of like this. However, I don't get the logic that says going into a hostile environment while self-imposing pretty much the worst case scenario is even remotely a good idea (or something that should be lauded).

Always bring the gear in case you need it. Make the goal not to use it. Anything else is definitely foolish.

Since when did "wearing a hoodie" become a euphemism for getting tea bagged?

It's a blanket with sleeves. They're nice when you are sitting on the couch on a cold day and want to read or play video games or use the TV remote but still keep your arms covered and warm.
