HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SNOW DAY
Despite the fact that the first day of Spring was literally yesterday, Mother Nature decided to celebrate with a huge snow storm at ThinkGeek HQ.
Look at this mess! This isn't what Spring looks like!
While we hide away from the confusing weather outside, we decided to put together a quick guide on how to have a perfect Snow Day.
1. SLEEP IN AND IGNORE ALL YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
This is an integral part of any Snow Day. It is a completely necessary first step to getting the full enjoyment out of your surprise imprisonment in your own home. If the weather isn't going to cooperate, why should you? So, pull those sheets back up over your head and turn off your alarm. Dream about one day leaving your house again. If you're looking for a new way to spruce up your hibernation den, ThinkGeek has lots of options here. The important part is to get nice and cozy and slip back into La La Land for a few more hours.
2. DON YOUR KIGURUMI
Now that you're properly awake, it is time to get dressed for the day. Perfect Snow Day wear allows you to carry the feeling of still being asleep in your bed wherever you go in your home. Pajamas, hoodies, and warm socks are all acceptable choices. This monkey prefers some sort of animal-based kigurumi, but any loungewear that banishes the thought of the cold outside world will work. If you need to stock up on your own Snow Day attire, we have plenty of choices here.
3. ENJOY A WARM BEVERAGE
Substitute the warmth of real human interaction with the warmth of a hot beverage in your hands. Make it as hot as you can stand in order to trick your body into believing it will one day be warm again. It won't be, of course. We live on Hoth now. But it's always nice to dream. ThinkGeek has plenty of fun mugs to choose from if your pantry is looking a little sad. This monkey believes a bigger mug is better; it means fewer trips to the kitchen. While you're waiting for your beverage to heat up, it's also time to raid the pantry for some portable snacks. You'll need them later.
4. BUILD A NEST AND BURROW
You have donned your Snow Day armor, retrieved sustenance, and carry the warmth of a thousand suns in your hands. It is now time to decide where you want to spend the rest of your day. A Snow Day nest will be your home for the remainder of your exile, so you will need to fill it with as many pillows, blankets, and plush as you deem necessary for maximum comfort. Snow Day scientists are split on whether a couch or a bed is a better location for the Snow Day nest. We recommend doing your own testing and finding what works for you.
Whether you want to play a new game, catch up on your reading, or finally watch that Netflix show everyone is talking about (you know the one we're talking about), you finally have the time to do so. Hunkered down in your nest with all the essentials, the day is yours to do with what you will. Enjoy it.
