On the upside, the field jacket I ordered day before yesterday arrived today - and it has a LINER! Hot damn. Now I'll be ready for (snort, chuckle) serious cold weather! Like there's a big chance of that around here. Still, I expect that liner's going to come in handy next April, if not sooner.
Currently reading: Flashman and the Dragon, but that's pretty heavy going in my current state and I believe I'm going to switch to The World of Jeeves until the fever dies out. What a time to be unable to drink. :(
