Jacket is mine!
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
I got my jacket last night and it is the very pretty cobalt color. It's deep purple/dark blue. I would have preferred a brighter color, but my only other option was the magenta, which was brighter, but not by enough to make me choose it over the prettier blue.
I did not ride my bike. Instead I picked up Dan and we had an adventure night. He came with me to the store, then we looked for the polar bear on Lakeshore. We didn't find it, but it was pretty dark. Then he showed me a creepy old nunnery and then we saw the tiger on 696. And THEN, when I was out of silly crap to do around town, we went to the casino. Dan bought a $4 beer and gave a blackjack machine $5 for one round, which he lost. We mostly walked around and people-watched. It was fun. I like hanging out with Dan.
I rode my bike to work this morning and I wore my new jacket. It is surprisingly warm and incredibly lightweight. It's an odd kind of warm though. Not like comfy and cozy. it's almost like cold-sweat heat. I think it traps your body heat. The more you move in it, the warmer it gets, but it's pretty cold at first. It wasn't very cold last night, and the little bit that I wore it around, I wore it unzipped. But wearing it to work this morning, it was somewhat chilly, I think in the 50s probably. And when I took it off, I felt slightly sweaty.
I'll report more after I wear it for a run.
