it's cold. quite cold actually. it's two shirts and obnoxiously thick fuzzy socks cold. it's get me a mug of hot joe STAT!-- cold. i am extraordinarily tempted to don the new north face jacket right here and now. have you ever owned a north face? worn one? experienced its near perfection? well, please. do us all a favor and rectify that if you haven't.
i purchased this fabulous maroon-ish north face windwall last week. it speedily arrived and i was sporting it within a few days. fortunately for me, this little miracle arrived just as the ghastly winds were blowing in. i had tossed the jacket on and sped out the door one evening. my vehicle was dinging incessantly, reminding me that a gas station pit stop was no longer something i could put off. so i whipped into the nearest fill-er-up, and waited in the brittle cold. except, i realized, the cold wasn't so brittle. in fact, i could barely feel the wind blowing at all. be still my heart. did this jacket actually live up to it's name? was my delightful splurge seriously a wall against the wind? indeed it appeared so.
i was delighted! second only to the little green plungers that occlude the hole on your starbucks lid--- this was the greatest invention i had ever seen!
long live the north face. may you keep me warm outside--and occasionally inside-- this fall/winter and always!
also- it would be against my very nature not to mention how consumably jazzed i am about the midnight viewing of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. oh! how long i have waited for my favorite crime destroying irish brothers to grace the big screen again. long black coat and sunglasses are at the ready. october 29th-- you have no idea what you're in for.
