    I am thinking of some old-timey long johns are actually not a bad idea for the winter. No drafts sneaking in at the waistline.

    So. I have been riding my bike to class in the evenings with my EMS long underwear tops and bottoms under my clothes, tucked into each other and into socks. Not bad at all!

    Another idea I had would be to get some fleece material and sew up some little wrist warmers to bridge the gap between gloves and sleeves.

    LOL. That is so disturbing, Gromit, but hilarious at the same time.

    My solution is sheep socks I got in Iceland. THEYARESOGLORIOUSLYWARMAMGS.

    I have several pair of wool socks. Amazing right? Anyway what were you doing in Iceland? I have some friends who went there on their honeymoon and I saw the pictures and really want to go now.

    By disturbing you mean... awesome?

    yes!! They are sooo cute!! and soft!! AND FLUFFY!!! *dies*

    I was there on vacation. I went hiking and explored the western side for a few days. I'd love to go back sometime... I really want to go to the northern side in the summertime. There is a place where you are pretty much guaranteed to see whales everytime you go out.

    I'd probably pass out and then fall over the side in my excitement.

    P.S. Reykjavik is boring. :P

    Chilly again tonight. Going to wear some long johns on my way to lecture! I used to hate winter soooo much, but it is like at least 3x better with long underwear, I kid you not.

    I think these might be a good addition. I like that they are a natural fabric.

    That is so cool. Someday I will go there! Although I have a couple other trips line up first, to visit people who have moved away. Have you been on a whale watch before?

    How cold does it get where you are? I think actually a motorcycle would feel colder than a bicycle, because on the bicycle your body is at least burning some calories which contribute warmth.
