Retraction: heated car seats are NOT just for spoiled pansies. My bad.

[….and the Corascope Chronicles continue….]

Last Friday Scope took me atop the two-story Target store parking garage in Chicago to snap pictures of the skyline with my brand spankin’ new DSLR camera….


Beautiful. Simply beautiful. And FLIPPING COLD.

Eleven degrees, I believe it was.

And wickedly windy.

Why, Mother Nature? WHY?????????????

*whimper*

Needless to say, my spoiled-rotten-by-50-degree-temperatures-in-January Seattle self was NOT used to such bitchtastic treatment by Mother Nature….


Uh-huh. And THAT is how I’m going to look every Winter once I move to Chicago. Like the very “special” love child of an Eskimo and a Leprechaun. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

But then again, Scope was quite adept at keeping me warm and happy….


….as were the heated seats he has in his car, which I hereby vow to NEVER mock again. EVER.

We went shopping and had a most delicious lunch at P.F. Chang’s. And then I snapped a slew of pictures in the car on the way home….












Most of these shots were taken through the salt-speckled windshield while the car was in motion. At night too. (Duh.) Incredible, huh?! I’m beginning to think there’s NOTHING this camera can’t do!

*le sigh*

Back at home, Scope and I watched a Jeff Dunham Christmas DVD (“SILENCE!!!! I KILL YOU!!!!”) which looked a little something like this….

Heated seats are for wimps.

*blink*

Did I say that out loud?

Scope said...

Don't worry, with global warming kicking in any time now, the winters will be much nicer.

Lori said...

The pictures are great and PF Changs is one of our favorites! Did you have the lettuce wraps?

I love Chicago.

Soda and Candy said...

Love the hot-pink fur on your jacket hood!

Callista said...

I'm worried about you...the inside of your hood is pink!
PS Start eating at places that aren't chains... no more PF Changs, .. they may be good, but you are suppose to be checking out the real Chicago food, not what you can eat here in Seattle. ;)

Callista said...

PS we have a two story Target at Northgate... maybe you can take pics off of it...although there isn't much to see so nevermind.

Sassy Britches said...

I really want to be in the city right now! But, I can't get there until tomorrow! :( Thanks for the preview, though. I can't wait.

Poindexter said...

I adore heated seats. I have one at work. No joke. Heating pad in my chair. Laugh if you want, but my ass is warm.

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit said...

I'm experiencing my first Midwest winter, too. Bloody cold, isn't it?!

J.J. in L.A. said...

I wonder if Scope has a listed phone number? ; )

(read today's Photo Friday and you'll understand...)

QuixoticGirl said...

I love me some butt warmers.


That sounded awkward. Sorry.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

It so changes the nature of your lastest post when I realize that you wrote 'spoiled pansies' instead of 'soiled panties'. I was scared about what those heated seats were doing to you. Yikes.

Maggie said...

The pictures look simply amazing!!

I'm stopping by because I saw your comment on Jules blog and you voted for me. Actually, it was someone else but you commented for them! Can't remember who it was. hehe Thanks!!

Have a great weekend!

Mo: Ohhhh, you are most incorrect, sir!

Scope: Will they be like ours? It's 60 degrees today and sunny. No-one is wearing coats. BEST SUMMER EVER!!!!

Lori: Yes on the lettuce wraps. Mmmmmmmm.

Sky Dad: The camera is FABOOOOOOOO!

Mjenks: Ditto.

Soda & Candy: Thanks!

Callista: Yeah, but since I got the coat at Hot Topic, I'm pretty sure it's cool despite the pink, 'kay?

Sassy: Hope you had fun!

Dex: I'm jealous.

Richard: Most definitely.

JJ: *snicker*

QG: Not awkward at all, m'dear.

Cal: Yes, that would be a different post entirely. I bet Mjenks has one. Or twelve. ;-)

Maggie: You ROCKED Idol!

Clueless Chinese Spammer: The only reason I'm not deleting you is because you called me "eye candy." Clearly.
