brrrrr, it's cold in here

"there must be toro's in the atmosphere... ice ice baby.." bring it on bitches.

it's getting cold up here in the great north of california. shutup. 40 something degress IS cold dammit. i do this every year. we do this every year. every year i'm freezing. and every year i refuse to dress appropriately.

already this morning i've heard "are you crazy????" because while the rumor is it's 40 something degrees outside, i'm wearing a tank top. it's always summer in my head.

i think there is a part of me that is still holding out hope that this place still has a few warm days left in it before i kiss any warmth goodbye for who knows how long. and once i stop wearing tank tops, i have conceded that warm weather is really gone. and i'm not ready to do that yet.
the worst day ever for me is the day i have to put on socks. and wear shoes instead of sandals. that's when i know it's really over. (don't get me wrong, i completely had to do this in so cal too... contrary to popular belief, it TOTALLY gets cold there too and we go full months without having tanning weather fuckyouverymuch)

so for now, i'm still wearing sandals. and i'm still wearing tanks. and if i have to go outside, i'll freeze my ass off. but i don't care. cause i'm not ready for it to be wintery and windy and freezing.

i'm just not ready.

so i refuse to give in.

cause i'm stubborn and mature.

I travel fairly often for my job, and it's almost always to a place with colder weather than Texas (like that isn't hard to do). I rarely take a jacket with me.

I like to enjoy the cool/cold air. I spend so much time complaining about the heat, why would I want to bundle up the first time I get away from it?

I'm with you on the tank top!

I will wear tank tops and flip flops on your behalf because, well, I'm in Texas and it's still freakin HOT! I long for the days of cute boots and scarves....

It's a bit nipply outside here too. :) Name that movie.

I don't mind the cold weather and I love long sleeves and sweaters and jackets (for awhile anyway) but I refuse to wear socks outside. I'll wear them inside to keep my feet warm but I wear sandals/flip flops to work. All year long. I know it's crazy but there is no reasoning with me. Trust me, my husband has tried. So I hear ya on the tank tops.

It was 71 here today and I'm freezing. I wore long pants, a long sleeve t shirt ... but kept sandals on of course. BRRRRRRRRR!

my real problem is that in my head, the temperature wherever i'm going is (of course) the same as where i am now. unfortunately, that is totally not true, so i end up frying or freezing depending on the destination. one would think i'd learn.

Could be worse, it snowed here on the weekend. The snow is gone already, but winter is on it's way here.

I love seasons though. Hope you do have a couple more days of warmth.

Seriously? I'm from Chicago... I scoff at your 40 degrees!

My problem is with the shoes. I despise close toed, grown up shoes. I will no doubt be improperly dressed until the snow is higher than the backs of my shoes, or higher than I can jump over without killing myself...

Ew, I despise socks! I wear sandals until my wee little toes turn blue and frost bitten. I refuse to admit it's Fall Dammit!

Socks can suck it!

My husband won't wear long pants until it gets to zero. As a matter of fact, he didn't own any jeans until last year - as he'd chucked all of them when we lived in FLA....
