Blankets Are Great

I like my blanket. It's soft, purple, and reasonably warm (an important attribute in any cost-conscious student house).

It also hides the fact that I had an attack of acute Can't-Be-Bothered-Anymore this morning when I was getting dressed, and the three items of clothing nearest to my bed didn't match in any way, shape or form. Which is kind of an incredible feat in itself, when you think about it. (And in case you're wondering, the blanket clashes horribly with all of them too.)

The other reason I like my blanket is that it allows me to go about my daily business whilst preserving the illusion that I am actually still in bed. (Maybe I am still dreaming… and it's not actually halfway through reading week, and it's not that I still haven't made any headway with my essays, it's just it's kind of hard to write essays when you're still asleep and the day hasn't started yet…)

Anyway, I'm going off the point slightly. Blankets Are Great. Especially the purple ones.

  1. The only blanket I can ever remember owning – or at least nearly owning – is the scratty one I got bundled with a badly arranged room in Cryfield. But wait, it gets better…

    Since I had been really absent-minded beforehand (what's new?), I had neglected the fact that forgetting to bring a duvet meant that I would have to sleep under a smelly, stiff, yellowing, oddly textured monstosity of a 'blanket', if I can call it that. Needless to say, I now have my own personal quilt.

    However, the above experience has not repelled me eternally from the earthly wonders that are blankets. Quite the contrary, in fact: from now on, I am almost guaranteed not to find a blanket or sheet in worse condition, and indeed I have found many worth rolling up in with a hot drink that I have come to enjoy and look forward to in times of angst and loneliness. It is at this point that I realise I am far too tired to write coherently any more, and shall to bed.

    Yes Miss Jenner, blankets are indeed great (ignoring the obvious on-campus exceptions), although I have no experience of purple ones. Good day.
